Jason Toews, operations manager at Plantraco, fine purveyor of radio-controlled blimps and other instruments, says demand was so high the company’s six staffers dropped everything and worked on packaging the kit (6-year-old child not included).
They “quit counting,” but he estimates they’ve sold thousands of kits, which cost $19.99 plus shipping is $25.56.
Toews says customers include lots of adults who are wearing the costume to their office parties.
