It’s Go Time! The Global Pet Expo is Here!

Davison News, Hugs Pet Products


Global Pet Expo 2015

The Global Pet Expo begins today in Orlando, Florida, and we are excited to see what the next few days have in store for the pet product industry!

Why? Because the Orange County Convention Center floor is the stage for Hugs Pet Products to showcase their latest and greatest products!

But, that’s not the only reason that we are excited. In fact, two Davison-designed products that are licensed with Hugs Pet Products will be on display at the pet industry’s largest annual trade show!

The Chillz Mat as well as the Silicone Dog Treat Pan, which are both client inventions, will be in the lime light at the Hugs Pet Products booth!

Could you imagine seeing your own pet product or other new invention idea being displayed at the Global Pet Expo or another big industry trade show, too? Though a typical Davison-developed product is not shown at a trade show, this doesn’t mean that you still shouldn’t pursue your invention dreams. If you want to possibly turn your idea into a tangible product, take the first step, and submit your idea, today!

Our representatives at the trade show have been sending us lots of great pictures from before the event even started! Here’s a little preview of the Hugs booth while it was under construction yesterday!

Obviously, the fun is just beginning at Global Pet Expo. Expect to hear more from Orlando soon!

QVC Shoppers Continue to Say Great “Stuff” About the Miracle Meatloaf Pan!

Product News

QVC Miracle Meatloaf PanICYMI: On Monday, Chef Tony and the Miracle Meatloaf Pan that we designed at Davison appeared on QVC’s “In the Kitchen with David” for the second time already this year!

Well, you don’t get monthly QVC appearances if QVC shoppers don’t have some great “stuff” to say about your product! So, today, we’d like to take a look at just some of the reasons why the Davison-designed Miracle Meatloaf Pan carries such an awesome customer-review rating on QVC’s website.

Miracle Meatloaf Pan

Take it from “Grandma Andy,” who titled her four-star review

“Hubby Loves it.”

“I got this for my husband. He is the cook at our house. He loves it. He made a stuffed meatloaf with cheese and mashed potatoes. It was so yummy!”

“Tomby,” who also gave the pan a four-star review, says, “Try it….. You’ll be happy you did!”

“Wished I would have had this pan years ago…… I do not use the press as I like to put more in the meat loaf and roll like a jelly roll……
So easy to lift out and slice………… ”

And, on to a five-star rating from “Joycesp,” who titled her review, “LOVE IT.”

“I used this pan yesterday on meatloaf. Put cheese in the middle. Works great. I made beer bread with it today. Works really good. LOVE it. I will use it more than I think.”

All in all, the Miracle Meatloaf Pan has been reviewed 45 times on QVC and we know that Monday’s appearance sold over 8,500 more units, so we can’t wait to see even more great stuff that is sure to come in future reviews!

Four U.S. Presidents, Four Inventions!

Holiday, Inventions

Presidents’ Day has come and gone and just like there are no days off for the president of the United States, there are no days off in the world of inventions, too.

Every day, a new innovative invention is being developed by people from all walks of life.

But, since last Monday was Presidents’ Day, we thought we would stick with the presidential theme and take a look back at a few of the innovations that some of our fearless leaders invented!

Let’s start with the only president who’s held a patent. We’re looking at you, Abraham Lincoln!


Abraham Lincoln's invention sketch

Did you know that Abe Lincoln, our 16th president, became so frustrated with his own boats getting stuck on sandbars that he thought of a bellows-like mechanism that inflates to help lift the boat over obstacles? Though most of us might not be able to relate to this issue, Lincoln was definitely a forward-thinker and found a better way to overcome obstacles!


Thomas Jefferson Invention- Jefferson Disk

Among all of the presidents thus far, Thomas Jefferson is perhaps the most creative, despite the fact that he never patented his ideas. However, that’s beside the point. His idea of the wheel cipher, known as the Jefferson disk, was a standout. This invention allowed him to send coded messages back to his home, all the while he was serving as America’s minister to France. That sounds a lot like a precursor to texting if you ask us!


James Madison Invention

Have you ever thought while on a hike, “Wow, I really wish my walking stick had a microscope?” If so, you have the same mindset as America’s fourth president James Madison did when he came up with this unusual invention. This invention combined a microscope into a walking stick, which would allow nature lovers to get a closer, better look at the interesting things around them.  Take a look at this invention in the image above from Mashable!

Last, but not least, although Theodore Roosevelt never actually invented anything, he did inspire a childhood classic, the teddy bear. In fact, Roosevelt gave permission to use his name to toymaker Morris Michtom, who then based his design off of the editorial cartoons of Clifford Berryman. So, the next time you snuggle up with your teddy bear, just think, you’re holding on to a piece of American history!

These are only a few U.S. presidents that have had an invention idea; and, we must admit that from an invention that solves the problem of a boat getting stuck to the classic childhood toy of the teddy bear, these presidents are definitely an inspiration for innovation!

A Valentine’s Day Idea You’ll Love!


Sweetheart Silicone Dessert Pan- Davison

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and if you’re still unsure of what to get that special person this year, look no further; we think we have an idea that your significant other will love!

Sometimes the simplest of gifts mean the most and the more time, effort and thought that goes into a present is often times more appreciated than a fancy dinner and box of chocolates.

So, if you are still searching for the perfect present to give that special someone in your life; at Davison, we think that our Sweetheart Silicone Dessert Pan will do the trick!

Even the most skilled baker knows that baking treats can be a very messy and frustrating task. Often times, when baking brownies, they can cook unevenly, which leads to a crumbled mess of brownies that are all different shapes and sizes.

Not to mention, the traditional metal pan can be hot to the touch for long periods of time after taking it out of the oven.

Plus, did we forget to mention that customizing those freshly-baked brownies can be difficult and time-consuming?

That’s why the Davison-designed Sweetheart Silicone Dessert Pan is the perfect solution for your brownie-baking woes.

This Valentine’s Day-themed product has created an easier way to bake heart-shaped brownies and other deliciously-sweet treats.

Like we said before, metal pans can take long-periods of time to cool. But, that’s not the case for our silicone pan! Our pan is not only flexible; it remains cool to the touch.

Besides brownies, what else can be used to fill those 12 heart-shaped molds? How does cake batter, Rice Krispie treat mix or cookie dough sound?

Whichever filling your prefer, each piece will come out in a perfect heart shape that can easily be iced and decorated.

So, if you’re still looking for the perfect gift for your significant other, bake your way into their heart this Valentine’s Day with our Davison-designed Sweetheart Silicone Dessert Pan! After all, nothing says love like a heart-shaped dessert!

You can pick up the Sweetheart Silicone Dessert Pan at, Hobby Lobby, Montgomery Ward and other retailers!

Chilly Mat Inventor Shares Story with Hometown Newspaper

Davison News, Product News

Chilly Mat- Page 6

When Diana Edington, the inventor of the Chilly Mat, noticed that her new puppy was having a hard time getting comfortable, she decided to take matters into her own hands.

That’s exactly what our client inventor told “The Banner,” a Carthage, Indiana, newspaper that recently published an article about their hometown-inventing hero.

Hugs Pet Products- Chilly Mat

“I had a puppy that was very tiny, and was looking for a way to make her feel not only comfortable, but secure,” she said. “At the time, she was in a crate. We put things in the kennels with them or their doghouses to help them stay comfortable through the winter, and you can do that with blankets. But, in the summer, blankets are too hot.”

Like many of our clients, Edington found a Better Way to do something… in her case, help her puppy stay cool and comfortable.

To help with her invention idea, Edington found Davison online; she contacted us and we continued to brainstorm on her idea with her.

“Once we had the general ideas in place, they took off with it from there… Davison is very good about taking the ideas that you throw at them and making it in a way that will benefit the company as well as you…” said Edington.

The Chilly Mat, Edington’s invention recently has been featured as a limited-time deal on and at a Bed Bath & Beyond store in Ohio. But, wait… there’s more!

Edington herself will be visiting Davison soon! Stay tuned to hear more about her visit!

Until then, here’s Diana Edington and the Chilly Mat’s story below:
