Noisy Galactic Openers

These Star Wars Themed Novelty Bottle Opener Products Make Sound Effects

— November 20, 2014 — Lifestyle
If you are looking for a novelty bottle opener to give someone (most likely a Star Wars fan) for the holidays, you have two options. From Hallmark, the Chewbacca and Yoda-inspired openers are not only designed to look like the famous sci-fi characters, they also make appropriate sound effects.

The Chewbacca novelty bottle opener makes his trademark wookie growls. Both Chewbacca and Yoda play the Star Wars theme and have the mouth area as the opener. To make the sounds, you press a small button located on the handle.

Hallmark suggests these products will be most enjoyed by dads looking to crack open a brew, but they will likely appeal to females in addition to younger people trying to open old fashioned glass bottles.
Trend Themes
1. Novelty Sound-effect Bottle Openers - Designing novelty bottle openers that make sound effects based on popular culture franchises presents an opportunity to appeal to hardcore fans.
2. Multi-functional Novelty Products - Creating products that serve multiple functions such as a bottle opener and a theme-specific soundboard presents an opportunity to increase customer appeal and enhance the user experience.
3. Nostalgic Product Design - Investing in product design that taps into nostalgia for popular franchises provides an opportunity to attract customers who have an emotional connection to that brand or item.
Industry Implications
1. Consumer Products - Companies in the consumer products industry could benefit from designing and manufacturing novelty bottle openers with sound effects to target hardcore fans and increase sales.
2. Entertainment - The entertainment industry can explore licensing opportunities for franchises that lend themselves well to novelty products like sound-effect bottle openers.
3. Marketing and Advertising - Marketing and advertising agencies could use novelty sound-effect bottle openers as promotional items or giveaways to connect with target markets and increase brand recognition.
