We had some (vicarious) fun when Wild Republic called us to rent one of our trailers and roll along in the Twins Days Parade!
Wild Republic gave us the specs on the float they were building, described what they needed, and told us about their tow vehicle. We made the reservation and … well, the rest is history. In fact, the 2015 parade theme was “Time Machine: Twins Days: Times 2 Remember!”
Rolling Along with Friends
Wild Republic‘s float looked great, and the company took a bunch of friends along on the parade route. The Twinsburg company had the perfect products to display, too – Switch-A-Roos. The unique plush toys aren’t exactly twins; they’re more like two best friends, paired together forever. Or more accurately, sewn together. If you haven’t seen a Switch-A-Roo, you might not understand how a puppy can turn into a pony…trust us; they’re cute! (Click on the 360 View to see what we mean.)
Also fitting for the Twins Day celebration: Wild Republic’s booth was themed “Switch-A-Roos: All Your Friends Come in Twos.”
Hitches and trailers are two other things that go great together (although aren’t not quite as cute as puppies and ponies). As Wild Republic prepared for the parade and festival, they anticipated some changes with the towing vehicle they planned to use, and they called us to make sure the vehicle would align with the trailer they needed for the float.
A little switch-a-roo? No problem. Making wildly cute toys is what Wild Republic does; making trailers and hitches work together is what we do.
Without a Hitch?
Now, we can’t say the parade went off without a hitch, because of course, if you’re pulling a parade float you definitely need a hitch! (Ha, ha…trailer humor, no extra charge.)
