Ripple Junction, a Top 100 global apparel licensee, just announced that it’s partnering with Hastings to launch its highly anticipated “Ohiya” line. Their character-driven merchandise includes t-shirts, toys, plashes, purses, and keychains. Hastings will be debuting the line in February 2012 in stores, as well as online.
Jason Tharp from Columbus got the idea from his belief that everyone should go out there and genuinely say “hi” to others and take the step outside of our personal boundaries. From there, he got the name “Ohiya!”
I’m a firm believer that you should never have a quite elevator ride — you never know, one “hi” could lead to something big! So, this message really hit home and I hope Tharp’s dream goes big! And it certainly sounds like it will!
