Smart Solar, the solar garden product specialist, will be launching over 50 new products at Glee as it looks to build on its success in solar lighting and water features.
It is expanding its decor range with a new collection of solar powered Metal Silhouette Animals that will make a real design statement in gardens of all sizes. From a peacock, pheasant, heron, cockerel, duck and swan to a hare, elephant and horse, each animal has intricate cut out patterned body that produces a stunning white or colour changing lighting effect at night, whilst being an attractive ornament by day.
Based on the popularity of the Bright Eye range of cats and Happy Hens, Smart Solar is adding a new collection of Bright Eye Dogs. With a choice of four breeds of dog, each with a subtle solar panel that lights the two white LED lights at night, the Bright Eye Dogs are bound to be popular with dog lovers. To facilitate sales, they are supplied in an open POS unit with bone shaped swing tags for easy shopping.
Smart Solar has also continued its Try Me packaging for the new ranges of string lights so that customers can see the lighting effect prior to purchase. New string lights for 2014 include Coloured Bottles and Coloured Butterflies as well as Party Lanterns.
There are some very different offerings for the solar water features market with the refreshed collection of water features that includes a number of new designs including a Lotus Flower Fountain and a Tree Trunk Birdbath.
Jonathan Stobart, Smart Solar’s managing director commented, ”We have a growing product development team that works hard to bring an exciting range of new products to market for Glee. Many of these products are perfect for all year round gift sales, enabling garden centres to start stocking products from early autumn which is reflected in the special promotional offers that we will have at Glee.”
