Giving "Inflatables" a whole new meaning

Traditionally, when you hear “inflatable”, what comes to mind? It might be a pool float, or an air bed, or even an inflatable animal. Throughout the history of APPF, we have built inflatable products from the Tan-N-Tub of the late 1980’s and 1990’s, the 2000’s saw us helping to build a large inflatable Panda for the movie premier of Speed Racer, but our work in inflatables does not stop there.

Known as the Vinnie Bag, this PVC inflatable bag was designed by Ellessco LLC. . With APPF’s assistance, and over 1 year in development, we were able to refine the design, and learned how to produce this complex, but much needed product. Designed for travel, you no longer have to worry about that bottle of wine you brought back from your vacation breaking in your luggage. Now you just put the bottom inside of a Vinnie Bag, Inflate it, and you are good to go. This product protects glass bottles from the sudden bumps and jolts usually found in the airline industy. If it does break, no worries, the intuitive design contains the liquids so they dont ruin everything else in your bag.

One of our most famous products… if you are in the Navy, is the Killer Tomato Target. The name itself was applied by the NAVY, as the orignal balloons came out around the same time as the movie “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes”. As such, as the popularity grew around the use of the name, we got in contact with Killer Tomato entertainment to be able to use their name and graphics. Since we first acquired the product from its original designer, we have gone on to add multiple, patented improvements to the design, ranging from a Drogue Chute, Radar Bar, and even lighting to aid in night operations while at sea. We have built everything from small desktop models, all the way up to 14ft in length, width and height. We are  always looking for new ideas for improvements. If you want to know more about these products, please click here to visit our Killer Tomato Page. While there are a few other companies that produce this type of product, We keep a lot in stock for fast shipments directly to the ships, and larger orders can be produced and shipped within a few short weeks.
