Mizco International is expecting a busy International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago this month.

The Avenel, N.J.-based company is introducing the Platinum Series of Travelocity-branded travel and mobile technology accessories, all prominently featuring the Roaming Gnome. New products include the Roaming Gnome Travel Earbuds, Book Lights and Book Marks, 3-In-1 Deluxe Travel Duffel Bags, Snap 'N Go Digital Cameras, iPod and iPhone Charge and Sync Home and Car Power Kits, TSA-Certified Easy Check-In Notebook Computer Travel Cases, Travel First Aid Kit, Travel Universal Bluetooth Headsets, and Laptop/Notebook/Netbook Travel Accessory Kits.

"When Travelocity joined forces with Mizco in January 2010, it marked the first time this iconic travel brand had ever joined forces with a marketer of high quality mobile technology and travel products," said David Strumeier, the company's executive vice president.  "The product line has proven itself at retail with many of our partners.  Today, we start the second chapter of this remarkable business partnership with the introduction of a new step-up line of Travelocity products, the Travelocity Platinum Series, featuring a wider array of both tech and non-tech accessory products."

Mizco iESSENTIALS division is introducing a line of Apple certified iPad accessories. The new iPad Shell Case features a rotating stand that allows for multiple viewing positions. Its durable clip adjusts for each user's desired view and allows the iPad to be mounted on a wall.  The Gel Skin Case features a durable gel skin material that is easy to grip and lightweight.

The Silicone Skin Case features an extremely durable silicone material. This model is also lightweight, easy to carry and grip, and features holes for a headphone jack, a dock connector port, on/off, and volume buttons. The new Leather Folio is designed for the consumer looking for a more traditional and upscale way to cover and protect their iPad. The new iESSENTIALS Anti-Glare Screen Protector fits the iPad's 9.7-inch screen and is crystal clear so as to not affect the iPad's onscreen colors and resolution. The product is also designed to keep the screen free from scratches, dents, fingerprints, spots and smudges.

Mizco is also going after the headphones business with its Creative Buds and Rock Candy lines. The Creative Buds line is available in five colors that also feature individual "monster" characters: green for "Boogie," black for "Blinkie," purple for "Plump," blue for "Spike," and pink for "Fluffy." Each headset's creature slides and up and down and serves as the set's cord management system.  The Rock Candy collection comes in six colors and is being merchandised in an 18-piece merchandising display that features an attention-grabbing pop-up header.
