We just wanted to say thanks for showing interest in our novelty product, The RUGged Man Advanced Hair System. I think you’ll agree it is a unique novelty product which is sure to turn over quickly. Combined with its’ attractive price point, this product will undoubtedly move even quicker if we get aired on David Letterman, The Ellen Degeneres Show or Jay Leno. You see as of November 10, 2011 we are sending samples to the producers and writers of these popular television shows. And as many of them feature "wacky gift idea" segments, we know the RUGged Man is a perfect fit.

As you may know, we were featured on the Canadian block buster show, The Dragons’ Den. Check out our media page for our aired episode. We were also shown with one of the fiercest Dragon, Mr. Kevin O’Leary wearing our advanced hair system in the CBC 2010 Fall Launch (at approximately 28:56).

Your customers will laugh when they first see the colorful eye catching box. Your customers will snicker when they read our world-famous guarantee. And your customer’s may even ask to use your restroom after finishing their pop. But more importantly, your customers will buy The RUGged Man. Not only is it a fun novelty gift but it’s a non-offensive product in which a family member can give to their balding uncle and not feel uncomfortable about it.

We understand that for us to be successful, you must be successful. We know that there are so many novelty products out there and that your self space is premium. We also realize that you need a product that won’t sit on the shelf long. That’s why we redesigned the box to be smaller yet more eye-catching. We’ve used the flame graphic as it was a popular re-occurring theme from the Dragons’ Den. We’ve punched a hole in the top to allow you to hang the item. We’ve placed a cut-out which allows the customer to see that it is indeed a piece of rug inside the box. We've included a "I Got Shagged" decal and instructional manual to increase the enjoyment of our product.

Once you become a retailer of our product, we will post your contact information on our retailer's page. If we get aired on television, there will undoubtedly be many visits on this website from the publicity and we want to help increase traffic to your retail outlet.

So, thanks for your consideration in our product. If you should have any comments or feedback, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Stay RUGged!

President and actual client of The RUGged Man Advanced Hair System


Make sure you check out World Wonders at the Spring 2012 Gift Show (January 27 - 31, 2013)


We’ve been able to team up with one of Canada’s top novelty and gift distributors, World Wonders.  Kevin and Trevor Misch, along with their great team spent several days getting ready for the CGTA trade show.   We picked World Wonders because of their great knowledge, product depth and more importantly their service to the industry. Kevin and his brother, Trevor are a family business who have gained a great reputation with retailers across this country. In addition, Kevin provided us with some great information and insight when we were preparing for the Dragons’ Den filming in Toronto. Thanks Kev!

If you haven’t had a chance to meet this great group of people, make sure you introduce yourself to them.  They will be glad to show you a vast array of products which will help grow your business. Apparently, they have this neat little ball called the Waboba Ball which has been really flying off the shelves. Make sure you inquire about it.  You can find them at Hall 5, booth 5230.



Edmonton, February 17 - 20, 2013


Once again, the great team at World Wonders will be showing The RUGged Man off at the Alberta Gift Show.  Hey, this is our home town and we are really excited to see our product shown in our home city.  If you see 2 guys walking around the tradeshow isles with carpets attached to their heads, you'll understand that it’s Terry and I showing off our new found confidence.  In fact, we look forward to perhaps meeting some of you fine retailers.

The team at World Wonders will be displaying a wide variety of products which are sure to be a good fit for your store. You can find them at Hall G, Booth # 1544.
