Client Reaction - Davison

As we put the final touches on our holiday preparations and the last bows on each of our presents, in the spirit of the holiday season, there’s nothing quite as special as seeing the smile on someone’s face as you give them a gift.

But, it’s safe to say that receiving a gift can be just as great as giving a gift!

As an innovator/inventor, you dream, day in and day out, that your idea will one day change the lives of many – a gift for all. In the invention world especially, one of the best gifts that an inventor could unwrap is the gift of seeing their hard work, determination and inventive spirit come alive as a product that proudly sits on a store shelf.

With the holiday season in full swing, and as you’re likely getting ready for quality time spent with family and friends, we’d like to give you a small gift – a gift that we hope will inspire you to one day dare to invent.

Enjoy this quick clip of some of our clients seeing their inventions in stores for the first time!

Who knows, the next product you see in stores could be yours!

And the Best Group Costume Award Goes to…

Holiday, Inventionland, Product News

A few weeks ago, we shared the exciting news with you that the Piñata Cupcake Pan was on QVC. Well this time, we are stuffed with excitement again to share with you a creative costume that our friends over at Inventionland shared with us from their recent Halloween party!

Three of our creative Directors of New Products here at Davison channeled their innovative and inventive spirits to create a costume that won them the award for Best Group Costume.

Lara, Laurie Ann, and Katelynn went above and beyond to tie in their costumes to our company! As you can see in the picture below, the group dressed as a piñata + a cupcake + Peter PAN and the result was the Piñata Cupcake Pan – get it?

Pinata Cupcake Pan Halloween Costume

“We all had such a great time putting these three costumes together. We worked really hard on them during our lunch breaks throughout the week, leading up to the very last minute! Laurie Ann is so creative and is always thinking outside of the box! We couldn’t have done it without her! Katelynn came up with the idea initially and we just built on it from there. We were so excited to win and even if we didn’t win a thing, the look on Mr. D’s face was rewarding enough! “said Lara.

This sweet costume was inspired by the Mrs. Fields Bake N Stuff Cupcake pan, a product that our friends over at Inventionland designed for the Love Cooking Company. Before airing on QVC, this innovative baking product was repackaged as the Piñata Cupcake Pan!

Pinata Cupcake Pan Halloween Costume

“We had so much fun with our costumes! Katelynn and Lara were troopers working so hard during lunchtime with all of my bossiness. I agree with Lara that seeing the look on Mr. Davison’s face was priceless. The hardest part was maneuvering around in a giant cupcake,” said Laurie Ann.

Just like the Piñata Cupcake Pan made an impression on QVC viewers, so too did this costume on the judges!

“This is the third Halloween party that I’ve attended to date at Inventionland and I must admit this year was the best! Laurie Ann is so creative in the way she put together the concept of the ‘Pinata Cupcake Pan’! It was so much fun getting to work together and bring the idea to life. The look on everyone’s faces was well worth the embarrassment of walking around as a Pinata! I’m excited about next year’s challenge and, who knows, maybe it will be another costume inspired by a great product!” exclaimed Katelynn.

We must admit that this costume was pretty sweet! Congratulations Lara, Laurie Ann and Katelynn for a job well done!

Two Things We Learned from This QVC Segment

Davison News, Product News

Pinata Pan - QVC Best Seller

Just a few weeks ago, we wanted to throw a small fiesta when we saw another product that our friends at Inventionland designed, the Piñata Nonstick Cupcake Pan, on QVC’s “Kitchen Unlimited with Carolyn.”

The pan, which also sells as the Mrs. Fields Bake N Stuff Cupcake Pan, debuted as the first item on the show and it is now listed as one of QVC’s Best Sellers!

Of course, it was exciting to see this product live on QVC, but nothing takes the candy-stuffed cupcake like hearing great feedback from our current and potential clients after it has stuffed them with inspiration!

After the segment had aired as the very first product on “In the Kitchen with Carolyn,” some of our clients reached out to us to keep their invention ideas moving forward, while others realized a newfound belief in their own new product ideas. Not to mention, some of our clients even purchased the Piñata Nonstick Cupcake Pan from QVC to give this innovative product a try!

Here are two things that we’ve learned from our most recent air-time on QVC:

Keep it going

After seeing this product on QVC, several of our clients were inspired to get their ideas going again. Sometimes, all that it takes is to see another situation that is reminiscent of yours yield positive results to restore your innovative spirit to keep chasing your invention dreams.

Believe in your idea

It’s no secret that sometimes it can be hard to keep your spirits alive if you don’t whole-heartedly believe in your idea. After seeing this particular QVC segment, and having the Piñata Nonstick Cupcake Pan air as the very first product on the show, clients have said that they feel more strongly and confidently about the fact that they too could one day take a bite of their own success.

Feeling inspired? Submit your invention idea, today!

QVC - Pinata Pan

In perfect “Throwback Thursday” fashion, we’d like to throw it back to yesterday afternoon, when the Mrs. Fields Bake N Stuff Cupcake Pan was featured on QVC!

You’ve previously been introduced to the Mrs. Fields Bake N Stuff Cupcake Pan, a product that our friends over at Inventionland designed for the Love Cooking Company.

Well yesterday, this innovative baking product premiered on QVC and was repackaged as the Piñata Nonstick Cupcake Pan.

Let’s just say, it made quite the first impression!

In fact, the Piñata Nonstick Cupcake Pan was the very first product that was showcased on the “Kitchen Unlimited with Carolyn” show.

At the top of the show, host Carolyn Gracie and QVC kitchen product specialist Marie Louise Ludwig served up “a new twist on a cupcake pan.”

QVC - Pinata pan

Of course, the “new twist” that they were talking about is the Piñata Nonstick Cupcake Pan!

With various kinds of candy and icing inside, the baking-duo perfectly paired the Piñata Nonstick Cupcake Pan as a product that’s perfect for both men and women in the kitchen who are trying to impress their kids or grandkids or to even cater to various tastes at school functions.

Ludwig even noted that the pan would be perfect for the popular gender-reveal baby showers!

“It takes basic cupcakes and turns them into something phenomenal,” said Ludwig, adding that the pan was also incredibly easy to use. “Basically, the pan does all the work for you,” said Ludwig.

Hugs Pet Products, Product News

PD General Store

As fall approaches, the excitement continues to build around the partnership that our friends at Hugs Pet Products have formed with celebrity chef and TV host Paula Deen. With Hugs, Deen has just released her own brand of dog food, which is now selling at her website’s General Store!

Deen’s website is not the only place where consumers will be able to purchase her special recipes of dog food. They’re already available from Hugs Pet Products and the chicken, beef and lamb varieties are soon to be available in various stores around the country.

Even before these pet-pampering foods hit stores this fall, we’ve received a first glimpse of the products and packaging from our friends over at Inventionland. Late last month, the very first shipment of Deen’s dog food arrived at their creative space!

The Inventionland design team was responsible for creating the Paula Deen dog food packaging. Just take a look at the back of the bags for proof!

Paula Deen Packaging

You can order your pup’s first bag of Paula Deen’s dog food from Hugs Pet Products or from Deen’s General Store. But, today, we’re giving you a sneak peek at the packaging:

Our Better Way to Make Bacon Sizzles on QVC!

Davison News, Featured Invention, Product News

 

Did you catch “In the Kitchen with David” on QVC last night?

Let’s just say the show left us sizzling with excitement!

Culinary Professional Chef Tony Notaro was back in David Venable’s kitchen showing off one of our latest baking product ideas, the Bacon Baker!

Dubbed the Bacon Bakin’ Pan by Chef Tony, the innovative product that we designed stemmed from our client Jean’s Meatball Baker idea. It provides a Better Way to make healthier bacon by vertically-baking bacon and elevating each individual slice out of its own grease.

Even before the dynamic duo debuted the Bacon Bakin’ Pan, Venable was hyping up the innovative product early in the show, tantalizing viewers with the “brand new way to cook divine swine.”

Once Chef Tony began touting the product that we created at our design facility and showing off just what the Bacon Bakin’ Pan can do, incredible sales immediately followed.

Within minutes, 500 Bacon Bakin’ Pans had sold.

Chef Tony and Venable continued to showcase perfectly cooked bacon, which the pan allows to cook on its side, preserving “all the flavor without the guilt,” as Chef Tony noted.

QVC viewers heard his message and by the time the segment was over, 1,800 of the 8,500 available pans remained and Venable said the phone lines remained “super busy.”

He wasn’t kidding! Only moments later, QVC.com read, “We’re sorry, this item is not available at this time.” Yes, that’s right! The Bacon Bakin’ Pan sold out on its debut QVC appearance!

We couldn’t be more excited for our client, Jean, Chef Tony and the entire team that worked to bring the innovative Bacon Bakin’ Pan to QVC!

And, don’t worry if you missed out last night; the innovative Bacon Bakin’ Pan is now available on QVC.com!
