Pokkas are Turtle Tough!

We recently got a note from Nic M., whose Pokka shipment arrived in pretty bad shape (see the picture on the left). We aren't sure what that tread pattern is, but we suspect it would match up well with one of those Post Office mail trucks. We know Pokkas are rugged (made from super tough ABS plastic), but the minimal damage to Nic's Pokkas surprised even us. A little "road rash" but otherwise functional. We replaced Nic's pens, but thought you might like to know that they can take a beatng.

Center For Disease Control Recommends Pokkas for Flu Season!

Just kidding, but maybe they should. I was in the Post Office yesterday, mailing off a big stack of Pokka orders, when I saw this little gem on the forms table. I nearly gagged.  I'm no germophobe, but it doesn't take much imagination to get skeeved out by this utensil, with all its germ-friendly nooks and crannies.  I carry my own pen (and its always a Pokka) for a lot of reasons. One good one is that in October, in the thick of flu season, I don't have to lay my hands on a germ collector like this. Thinking about a...
