You all know I have a soft spot for mom-owned businesses.
Moms are creative, innovative and motivated by their desire to be with their children and create a better future for them.
Children: 2 ½ year old daughter, Blakely and baby #2 due in April
How did you come up with Mommy Mitten?
I came up with the idea for Mommy Mitten in Oct. 2007 when Blakely was just 2 months old. I was out running errands with her in the stroller in our NYC neighborhood and it had just started getting chilly outside. I did not have my mittens even out of storage yet; thus the idea struck.
So lightning struck, then what?
I researched for competitive products and at the time found none. So I was off to the races as they say. Since then I have worked through the provisional patent process, trademarking, prototype creation and selection of a manufacturer, building a website, setting up my company and so much more. This venture took a bit longer then I had hoped namely due to the fact I was doing all of this on my own primarily when my little one took her naps each day. It has not always been a smooth process, but I am excited that I finally launched in Sept 2009.
Where can we find your product?
Mommy Mitten is now sold via my website, http://www.mommymitten.com/, as well as on the Babies R Us website!
Amy was nice enough to send me the Mommy Mitten for my review and I have not shut up since! I absolutely love it! My hands stayed nice and toasty in the Mommy Mitten as I strolled to the supermarket last week. And Mommy Mitten also has a zippered pocket so you can store cash or your cellphone!
Amy: We wish you much success with Mommy Mitten, although with such a fantastic product, luck is not really needed.
