Davison-Designed Hanger Pockets Have Got Serious Tex Appeal!

Product News

No, you didn’t read that headline incorrectly. We said that the Hanger Pockets we designed at Inventionland for our client Jennifer have some serious “Tex Appeal!”

Now, what on earth did we mean?

The clothing accessory organizer that conveniently slips over a hanger, allowing users to keep their outfits carefully coordinated, has been featured in the September issue of a Central Texas life and style magazine, aptly named “Tex Appeal.”

According to their website, Tex Appeal is “fascinating, alluring, engaging, tempting, influencing, and charming… all about Central Texas living . . . the people, the places, and the things that make us appealing.”

In their September 2014 issue, Tex Appeal writers featured an article that told the story of how Hanger Pockets came to be. Not only was a Davison inventor and her product featured in the magazine, but our founder and CEO Mr. Davison contributed to the story as well!

In a one-on-one interview with our inventor, Jennifer, she reveals that she originally signed with Davison in 2008, but it took her over two years to save the funds to move her idea forward. Our client said that even when her idea moved forward, there was a lot of waiting around.

“When I did hear, I got rejections from several manufacturers. At that point, I decided to put the matter in God’s hands and move forward with my life,” Jennifer said.

Early in 2014, Jennifer got a call that was not a rejection, but a licensing agreement with the Jokari Corporation. Though she was overjoyed, she said that she, again, waited another six month for her Hanger Pockets to hit the market.

“Be sure you have a strong support network also, because you will go through a roller coaster of emotions – you need people around who will believe in you and listen. You also have to walk by faith and not what you can see at the moment,” said Jennifer.

Mr. Davison said that Jennifer’s product is off to a great start, thanks to her persistence to pursue her idea.

“Hanger Pockets is off to a good start; it’s gotten the kind of response we hoped to get… [Jennifer] had an idea that worked and Jokari was happy with it, too. This is a win-win for all parties involved,” said Mr. Davison.

Read more about Jennifer’s Hanger Pocket story and see what the magazine has to say about our nine-step Better Way to Invent on pages 42-43 of Tex Appeal.

Congratulations, again, to Jennifer and the entire Davison and Inventionland teams that worked to bring Hanger Pockets to market!

Mommy Blogger Dana Vento Introduces Brookie-Bribery at Home!

Product News

We could talk all day and night about how innovative and ingenious the Brookie Pan is that we designed for Love Cooking Company. What could be tastier than combining the two of the world’s best sweets – a brownie and a cookie – into one tantalizing treat?

But, we know… we know… it is one thing for us to tell everyone just how good the Brookie is, but it is another thing altogether whenever someone actually tries it for themselves.

And, who better to try out the Brookie Pan than famed Pittsburgh mommy blogger Dana Vento?

Vento tested a Brookie Pan and not only raved about the results on her blog, “Dana Vento: Lavishly Living Life Out Loud;” but, she also uploaded a video of her Brookie-making process to YouTube!

What did she think about our brownie-cookie creation?

“The final product [is] nothing short of amazing and 5-star divine!” said Vento.

In fact, she called the products that have resulted from the union between Mrs. Fields and Love Cookie Company… “ultimate!”

“Together Mrs. Fields and the Love Cooking Company have blended innovation and recipes to create the ultimate wares for your kitchen needs,” said Vento.

Of course, we know that many of those products are the result of the union between ideas and innovation at Inventionland! But, back to Vento’s Brookie-making adventure!

On her blog, Vento describes how she institutes a dinner-time Clean Plate Club (CPC) at her home. To get into the club, her family, which includes her husband and three children, must try everything that is offered during dinner – even if it is only a small spoonful. To be granted CPC status, they must clean their plates of everything they try.

Why try to join the CPC? Well, it’s the only way to get dessert and in this particular case… a Brookie!

“The CPC in our home has never been in such demand as the kids can’t wait to get to their Brookie,” said Vento. “While I don’t believe in bribing, I sure do believe in great tasting, homemade treats that taunt, tease and delight the senses and the Brookie offers just that, a way to satisfy that sweet tooth pang!”

Of course, we couldn’t agree more!

Miracle Meatloaf Pan Stays Stuffed with Great Reviews!

Product News

You may recall that the Miracle Meatloaf Pan has been featured on QVC twice already this year. Culinary Professional Chef Tony Notaro first featured the Miracle Meatloaf Pan on QVC’s “In the Kitchen with David” in January and the pan sold out in less than 10 minutes. The Davison-designed stuffed meatloaf pan was back on QVC in June and it sold over 7,000 units!

We decided to check back in on the pan to see what other users have had to say about it.

Well, now the pan is listed as one of QVC’s “Most Wished For” items and it carries a nearly perfect five-star review rating!
There are too many awesome reviews to list them all, but we’ve picked out a few of the latest and greatest things that people are saying about the Miracle Meatloaf Pan that we designed:

Whack-a-Mouse Tops 180,000 Views on YouTube!

Product News

Let the great Davison-designed pet product news keep coming!

Yesterday, we told you about Sticks Throwing Dog Treats and the Whack-a-Mouse Interactive Cat Toy, two pet innovations that were designed for Hugs Pet Products and recently had been featured on Coupaw.com, a pet-and-deal-lover’s best friend.

Today, we’re excited to tell you even more great news about the innovative Whack-a-Mouse that we designed at Davison.

You see, a little over a year ago, the people at ThinkGeek created a short, entertaining video that featured cats, dogs and even humans playing with the Whack-a-Mouse, aptly called the “Cat Whack a Mole.”

Now, that video has reached over 180,000 hits on YouTube, ranking it as one of the top five videos when you search for “Whack-a-Mole” or “Whack-a-Mouse” on the site!

What does that mean for the Davison-designed pet product? Well, we did a little more digging and found out that those 180,000+ views translated to the Whack-a-Mouse being out of stock on ThinkGeek.com!

What a lesson in the law of supply and demand!

But, don’t worry; if you would like to pick up a Whack-a-Mouse for your dog, cat or even for yourself, ThinkGeek expects to have more in stock in just 1-3 weeks.

See the Whack-a-Mouse on YouTube or at ThinkGeek today.

Chew on this: Davison-designed Deals Featured on Coupaw.com!

Product News

Obviously, we are still reeling with excitement from last month’s SuperZoo trade show in Las Vegas. With all of the potential for Davison-designed products in 2015, it is hard not to be pumped up!

But, why wait until next year to get excited about seeing some Davison-designed pet products on the market?

Recently, it was brought to our attention that Coupaw.com had a deal on Sticks Throwing Dog Treats, a tasty product that we designed for Hugs Pet Products!

According to their website, Coupaw is a pet-friendly, member website that offers its users limited-time deals on pet supplies in order to “tell other people about some of the best pet services and retailers [they] could find, and to arrange some great savings for all of us!”

When a user subscribes to Coupaw, deals on dog and cat products are emailed to them. For a limited time, they are able to take advantage of those deals and share them with friends and family to get credit toward future deals.

Although the Sticks deal has now expired, it had featured both the Smokey Bacon and Peanut Butter flavors of the throwing dog treats for as low as $6.95, almost half of their $11.98 suggested retail price.

What’s even better than seeing one product that we designed at Davison for sale?

While pawing around for Sticks on Coupaw.com, we spotted ANOTHER Davison-designed pet product featured on the website!

The Whack-a-Mouse Interactive Cat Toy had been offered as a deal on Coupaw, too! The Whack-a-Mouse, cousin of the whack-a-mole, is a game that will keep any cat chasing after a toy mouse for hours.

If you’ve got a pet (or even if you don’t), sign up for Coupaw.com alerts today and see some awesome Davison-designed pet products at super-great deals!

Jade No-Burn Cookware Leaves HOT Impression on QVC!

Davison News, Product News

Were you “In the Kitchen with David” on Sunday, March 30? QVC’s popular kitchen show featured the Jade No-Burn Pan that was designed at Inventionland for the Love Cooking Company and the revolutionary new cooking product did not disappoint!

QVC host David Venable, along with Culinary Professional and Jade No-Burn Pan spokesman Chef Tony Notaro showcased the many capabilities of the seven-in-one pan.

At one point in the piece, Chef Tony referred to the pan’s kitchen capabilities saying, “It’s absolutely mind-blowing!”

To prove just how much the Jade No-Burn Pan can do, the dynamic kitchen duo demonstrated several dishes, including everything from grilled chicken and sausage to sauteed rice and macaroni and cheese.

After only seven minutes on the air, Venable let viewers know that 1,000 pans had already been purchased and that the phone lines continued to ring off the hook!

Speaking of phones ringing, Chef Tony gave an awesome everyday example of just why the Jade No-Burn Pan can benefit anyone who cooks with it.

“If you get a phone call or the kids call you and you get distracted, you don’t have to worry about the food burning,” said Chef Tony.

Sound unbelievable? Chef Tony thought so, too… until he cooked with the pan.

“When they first told me about this pan… I didn’t believe it, till I cooked with it. Now, I’m sold,” said Chef Tony.

While the secret is not in the sauce, it  IS inside of the pan! Part of Sunday’s demonstration included showing off the revolutionary jade technology that allows the pan to heat up to medium heat and maintain that temperature, making it impossible to burn your food.

“It is an amazing little piece of technology…,” said Venable. “It regulates the perfect medium heat.”

The Jade No-Burn Pan is now available in black, platinum, copper and red varieties. Venable suggested that there may be even more options for the pan in the future.

“This is just the first of more to come, if you guys tell us you like it,” said Venable.

That sounds “D-lightful!” Stay tuned for more news and reviews of Love Cooking Company’s Jade No-Burn Pan that we designed at Inventionland!

For now, check out the Jade No-Burn Pan on QVC!

No Split Decision: The Half N Half Cupcake Pan on QVC was a Huge Success!

Product News

With the recent success of the Miracle Loaf stuffed meatloaf pan on QVC, news of Davison-designed products making a big splash on the world’s leading video and ecommerce retailer seems like everyday news here. So, when we announced last week that the Mrs. Fields Half N Half Cupcake Pan also was slated to appear on QVC, it may not have come as a huge surprise.

Today, we’re excited to share that the Half N Half Cake Pan, which was licensed by Love Cooking Company, not only appeared on QVC’s “Kitchen Unlimited with Carolyn” last Wednesday, but it has also received rave reviews from viewers who purchased the innovative bakeware!

If you missed the show, you can see long-time QVC kitchen product specialist Marie Louise Ludwig showcasing the Half N Half Cupcake Pan here:

Ludwig introduces the Half N Half Cupcake Pan as a “fun twist on an old favorite,” showing off adorable Easter chick cupcakes, pink and blue cupcakes that are perfect for a baby’s gender-reveal party and a scrumptious peanut butter cookie and brownie combination cupcake.

Obviously captivated by true inventor spirit, Ludwig says, “The sky’s the limit as far as creativity is concerned!”

We couldn’t agree more and neither could a couple customers, who instantly ranked the Half N Half Cupcake Pan with five out of five stars.

One user, whose review calls the pan “genius and time saving,” also said, “I got excited when I saw this so I told myself I gotta have it. It’ll make my baking fun, faster and easier. Genius!”

Another user, who called the pan “cupcake fun for everyone,” said “It takes a little patience to make things turn out perfectly, but I have given this set as a gift on a few occasions, and my friends and family love it as much as I do. Happy baking…”

Both reviewers also said that the Half N Half Cupcake Pan is the perfect gift for families, so if you haven’t picked your up yet, grab one for yourself and a family member or friend!

Congratulations to our client, Richard, and everyone who has worked on making the Half N Half Cupcake Pan such a success!

Set Your DVR: Davison’s Half N Half Cupcake Pan to be on QVC between 1- 2 p.m. Tomorrow!

Product News

It seems like mere weeks ago when we told that you the Davison-designed Miracle Loaf was to be featured on QVC’s “In the Kitchen with David.” Days later, we shared the exciting news that the Miracle Loaf had SOLD OUT on QVC in less than 10 minutes!

Today, we’ve got more exciting news to share regarding the world’s leading video and ecommerce retailer.

Another Davison-designed product, the Half N Half Cupcake Pan, is scheduled to appear on QVC between 1- 2 p.m. tomorrow!

For Davison and our inventors, that’s TWO products appearing on QVC in less than one month’s time!

This incredible news from QVC comes on the heels of Half N Half Cupcake Pan excitement that has been building for months. Just before the holidays, the Chicago Food Blogger’s 2013 Holiday Gift Guide featured the pan, calling it a “fun way to create creative cupcake flavor combinations – all in one cupcake!”

Most recently, Mr. Davison and our client, Richard, had the pleasure of seeing the Half N Half Cupcake Pan live on the store shelves at a local Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft store.

The pan, which was licensed and is sold by the Love Cooking Company under their Mrs. Fields Bakeware Innovations line, allows users to make delicious cupcakes and muffins that are equally split between two flavors! It comes with an easy-to-use-and-clean divider that separates the cupcakes into two halves.

So, combining chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, blueberry or any other mouth-watering flavor is no problem with the Half N Half Cupcake Pan!

As you know, the professionals at QVC are always cooking up delicious combinations, so we can’t wait to see what they create with the Half N Half Cupcake Pan!

Don’t forget to record QVC between 1- 2 p.m. tomorrow – and, tell your family, friends, clients and anyone else you know to tune in, too!
