The Design Brief Contest originated in the UK in May 19, 2008. Contributors were asked to apply a design to a pair of Hijinx, the box, and accompanying microbag. A total of 60 entries were presented online for consideration, and #38 was chosen for actual production. 300 items were released later in May 2009. Initially they were hard to get, but the remainder were liquidated on an online retailer a few years later.
