Sun block in a 'tottle'

Agility Sports, LLC, Grand Rapids, MI, launched its NASCAR-branded Race Face Sun Block in unique new packaging in 2005.

FILED IN:  Package Type  > Tubes
     

Called a “tottle,” the combination tube and bottle is elliptically shaped, holds either 2 oz or 8 oz of product, and features a detachable lanyard which allows the package to rest comfortably against the customer’s chest for quick and easy accessibility. Agility Sports developed the package in collaboration with TricorBraun (www.tricorbraun.com). The design team’s goal was to make the package distinctive in style from competitive products.

The container is made from extrusion blow-molded, high-density polyethylene. Agility Sports currently is in the process of restaging the pressure-sensitive labels and revising contract filling arrangements, choosing not to share the specific direction of those changes.
