In 2011, The Bridge Direct introduced Inkoos, soft characters that you can draw on, wash clean, and then draw on again. In 2012, the Inkoos characters are getting a sparkly new look. Blingoo Inkoos come with three Inkoos washable markers that attach to a key loop on the Inkoos character. Kids use the markers to draw and color on the Inkoos character, but kids can also add some "bling" with the four washable glitter glue pens and 12 colorful stick-on gems. Once kids are done decorating, the Blingoo Inkoos can be washed in the washing machine to come out clean and ready to be decorated all over again. There are four Blingoo Inkoos styles available (puppy, owl, bear, and cat), each with shiny embroidery and tons of white space for maximum doodling.
