About Hog Wild Toys
Located in Porkland, Oregon, Hog Wild was founded in 1996. We live by these simple rules: We sell innovative novelty products typically geared to older kids (over 8) and that cross over to adults. We try to be different and dance to our own beat when developing toys and gifts. We’re not the brightest bulbs in the warehouse but we do try and often own up to our stupid mistakes. We like things simple because it’s easier for us to understand.
This game has players tossing pizza toppings through the air! Each round players have 30 seconds to toss their toppings onto the rotating pizza game board. What makes this game so much fun is trying to land your color coded topping on the correct spot on the pizza. But to make it even more challenge, the pizza is spinning! Using the pizza chef launcher, you fling your topping up on the pizza… or completely off the table! This is a great multi age age. There are three different challenges to vary the levels of difficulty.
Shoot balls up to 20 feet with this classic power popper! Battles will be epic with this gun. This Atomic Power Popper includes 12 balls and 3 targets. No batteries required either. Simply pump up the power and fire away!
This Yeti Holiday Popper is one of the poppers available in the series. Others include Big Foot, Shark, Narwhat, Unicorn, T-Rex and Dragon. These poppers are single shot but simply to use. Simply insert the ball into the popper mouth, aim, and POP! Squeeze the Yeti Popper to shoot a soft foam ball up to 20 feet! The harder you squeeze, the faster and farther it shoots.

About Chalk of the Town
Wendy and sister Sondra have always been crafty, so when they noticed chalkboard surfaces trending in interior design they thought ‘imagine if we could put a chalkboard on a shirt to create a new shirt everyday!’. The sisters were determined to create a chalkboard-like surface that could accept chalk markers, not only smudgy traditional limestone chalk. As mothers themselves, Sondra and Wendy also felt the shirts had to be durable, machine washable and re-useable. After much research and a bit of product testing help from their school aged children, voila! Chalk of the Town t-shirts were born.
Chalk of the Town is a line of chalkboard products ranging from T-Shirt and Long Sleeve Kits to Tote Bags to Patches, allowing both kids and adults to create and design their own wearable fashion using Chalkboard markers. PLUS they’re both erasable and reusable so you can design again, again and again!
Some of our favorite Chalk of the Town products:
These tote bags are made with 100% cotton canvas and are 14.5 inch width, 15 inch height, and 1 inch gusset. The handles are 22 inch which allow for easy carrying. Create your own custom tote based on your feelings or interest for the day. Use the included chalk markers to draw a picture or write your favorite quote. Once the chalkboard paint has dried is won’t smudge. When a new creative urge arrives, wipe the current design away with a damp cloth. T-Shirt kits includes a canvas tote bag, 2 chalk markers, and a washcloth.
This patch can be applied to just about any surface. Using the included chalk paint markers, create a drawing or write a quote to encourage someone. Once the chalk paint is dry, the design won’t smudge or bleed. When ready to change, simply wipe it away with a damp washcloth before creating a new design. The patch kit includes a 3.5 inch round fabric patch and 2 water based chalk markers.
Chalk of the Town has t-shirts for all ages. They are available in a wide variety of colors and come with a chalkboard on the chest area. Using chalkboard markers, create a drawing or mini billboard to express yourself. When ready to change the design, simply wipe the chalkboard clean with a damp wash cloth. Kits include a 100% cotton t-shirt, a seasonal stencil, 3 water based chalk markers, and a wash cloth.
Stencils are templates to get your designs started. Use them to create a drawing or add a design to your chalkboard. They can be used on any chalkboard surface. Once they dry, your design won’t smudge until wiped with a damp wash cloth. Stencils measure 3.5″ b y 5″ and can be used over and over.

Like most families, we have spent far more time home and isolated this year than ever before. It has been tough on everyone. Personally, the lack of having friends over has been tough on my little ones. And when they all had to school remotely, squabbling between them stepped up to a whole new level.
