     Kooky Klickers(R) are a fun and interesting pen concept in which each
 pen has a personality and a unique artistic design. The Kooky Klicker,
 approximately six inches in length, is ergonomically designed and
 comfortable in both a child and adult's hands and is topped with thin
 flexible stringy hair that bounces with each pen stroke. Each Kooky's
 personality is designed with different colors, body artwork and hair to
 create a distinctive character that children and adults will like to use,
 collect and trade. Each Kooky Klicker has a unique name such as "Da Vinci,"
 "Koko," or "Duke," that is printed on the back. Each Kooky belongs to a
 "Krew" of six members that are released on a regular basis while old ones
 are occasionally retired. The pens will be sold for a suggested retail
 price of $3.00 each. Kooky Klickers(R) can be purchased nationwide at
 select stores including Staples, independent Hallmark stores, Rainforest
 Cafe and other gift and general merchandise stores. In Canada, Kooky
 Klickers(R) can be purchased at Staples Business Depot, Indigo, Chapters
 and Coles among many other establishments.
     The pen's incarnation and overall concept was the brainchild of Brent
 Reese, president of Courage Trading Company. Reese, a prolific entrepreneur
 that has created and developed many other unique product lines, came up
 with the collectible idea from his existing souvenir and gift company.
 "I've seen many fads and collectable items that people keep on their desks
 or that kids trade in school and I noticed that its funny that a lot of
 what people collect and trade can't be used in a utilitarian sense," said
 Reese. "I decided to create the Kookys as a fun item that people can use,
 collect, trade and enjoy all at the same time."
     Kooky Klickers(R) are a tradable line of pens that have the potential
 to be the next biggest craze. Kooky Klickers(R) can be clipped to key
 chains, book bags and purses to name a few. This collectible line of
 amusing pens is sure to create a following among adults and children alike.
