From Musical Tanning Towels to Emergency Blanket Bags

 - May 8, 2012
These unusual beach accessories bring forth new and inventive ways to spend a day by the water. The typical sand and sun-soaked events that are captured by major magazines usually feature bikinis, drinks and over-sized sunglasses. Few of these features showcase an alternative side to the phenomenon, or rather the products of visionary engineers, designers and marketing experts.

Musical tanning towels and emergency blanket bags are only some of the products that have revolutionized this niche. These unusual takes on the classic beach tote and towel have spurred creative outlooks on the goods, signifying a break with the past. Such frameworks have also enabled consumers to make original purchases that serve practical ends, often with a mind for style and convenience.
