Davison News, Product News

Mama Smith's Blog

As Cyber Week continues and you cross names off of your holiday gift-giving list, another mommy blogger has stepped up to review some Love Cooking Company products that we designed at Inventionland. If there is someone on your list that loves to cook and bake or who needs a little extra help in the kitchen, Mama Smith has tested some products that just may be the perfect holiday gifts!

In a blog post titled “Love Cooking – Baking Products You Cannot Live Without!” the self-proclaimed stay-at-home mom, country girl, geek and gamer gives Love Cooking Company’s Mrs. Fields Cookie Cuttables, Cupcake Cone Pan and Sto-N-Go Dessert Carrier the true test when she uses them to bake with her two young girls.

Mama Smith Blog

“To say that I was thrilled is a bit of an understatement. Every single one of their items was something I do not think I can live without,” said Mama Smith.

Specifically, Mama Smith said that the Cookie Cuttables were “fun and easy to use,” which is why she suggested getting them for Christmas, Halloween, birthdays and other occasions!

Mrs. Fields Cupcake Cone

Mama Smith said that the Cupcake Cone Pan allowed her to create her new favorite dessert.

“Cupcakes in an ice cream cone! So amazing!” said Mama Smith.

Finally, Mama Smith noted that the Sto-N-Go Dessert Carrier was the one product that has made sharing her baked goods even more of a treat.

“My in-laws live less than 5 minutes away so we are always going to visit them. When we do, we bring cookies, cupcakes, brownies, whatever we have made that week. This used to be such a pain but not anymore with the Sto-n-Go Dessert Carrier. We love this thing!” said Mama Smith.

Mrs. Fields Sto N Go

Not only did Mama Smith test out a few of Love’s innovative items, but she pointed her readers to heavily-trafficked sites like Amazon.com, Kohls.com and Target.com, where they can buy various Love Cooking Company products that we designed!

Naughty or Nice? The Fill N Flip’s QVC Reviews are In!

Davison News, Product News

We’re just one week away from Thanksgiving and you know what that means… in the aftermath of filling your plate (and your stomach) with turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie and all of your other feast-day favorites, the holiday shopping season has arrived!

As you’re carefully scouring your own naughty-and-nice list this holiday season, how can you be sure that what you’re buying will be a hit long after the holidays are over? Well, one great place to start is by reading some customer reviews!

Following their appearance on QVC, customers who’ve purchased the Mrs. Fields Fill N Flip Round and Square Layer Cake Pans haven’t been shy about singing their praises on QVC’s website.

But, don’t take it from us. Here are a few of the reviews that are “filling” the Fill N Flip’s nearly-perfect five-star rating:

In a review titled “fun fun fun,” one customer said the pans are a “great idea and can surprise folks with hidden goodies… the ideas are endless!”

One five-star reviewer said “Love these cake pans, make the best cakes ever! I ice the tops and fill them with pie filling and every one loves and raves about them, can’t keep the cakes in the house – they disappear. A hint: A light spray of Pam and the cakes come out clean. Can divide into two cakes for smaller cakes. One of the best purchases I ever made.”

Another five-star reviewer raved that the pans already gave her a start to her holiday shopping. “I ordered one for me [and] one for [my] daughter-in-law… used mine and it was great, came out of pan nice and was fun to make, made a mousse and it worked great.”

Finally, the newest review to come in also ranked the Fill N Flip pans with five stars. “These are a great set of pans for making cakes for my grandchildren… they love the surprise I have in the middle. They are nonstick and clean up is a breeze.”

The verdict is in. For the person who loves to bake (or even the person who would love to become a better baker), the Mrs. Fields Fill N Flip Round and Square Layer Cake Pans that we designed at Davison are a home-run hit for the holidays!

In Time for Holiday Shopping… More Products on Store Shelves!

Davison News, Product News

It’s no secret that our Better Way to Invent has put more products in stores than anyone else in the invention industry. With products that have sold in over 1,200 brick-and-mortar stores and online retailers, we’re talking about A LOT of products! But, do we get tired of seeing those new products hit new shelves for the first time?

Absolutely, not!

Jokari Hanger LinksLast April, we spotted the Hanger Links that we designed on Jokari.com, the website for the company that licensed the innovative new closet-organizing product.

Well, we recently found out that Jokari.com is not the only place where you can find Hanger Links!

The next time you’re browsing Amazon.com (which we all are guilty of doing more than we should!); type in “Hanger Links” and you’ll find the “Jokari 4 Count Closet Mates Hanger Links Accessory Organizer.”

In fact, you can also find Hanger Links at pricefalls.com, newegg.com and GrabCart.com! Go ahead and search “Hanger Links” on Google. You’ll find them at even more online retailers!

Did we mention that Hanger Links aren’t the only new product we’ve found on new store shelves?  We know the Fill N Flip Locking Layer Cake Set was a hit on QVC, but if you don’t do your shopping on the TV screen, check your computer screen! The Mrs. Fields baking innovation that we designed at Inventionland is for sale onTarget.com!

Check out the link, but make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom. Under the “guests who viewed this item also viewed…” box, you’ll see a few more Mrs. Fields products that we designed!

As the holiday shopping season is about to get underway, we can’t think of any more festive news than finding more Davison-designed products on store shelves!

The Fill N Flip on QVC? We’ll Take Seconds!

Davison News, Product News

It’s been just over a week since the Mrs. Fields Fill N Flip Round and Square Layer Cake Pans that we designed at Davison for the Love Cooking Company appeared on QVC’s “Gifts for the Cook.”

We received news that the Fill N Flip pans sold well… and we mean very well!

In fact, the Fill N Flip Round and Square Layer Cake Pans generated $7,200 per minute and were considered a strong sell by QVC!

So strong that just like the Miracle Meatloaf Pan that we designed, the Fill N Flip Pans will be featured on QVC for a second time!

Just in case you didn’t catch the pans the first time around and you haven’t visited QVC’s website to see all of the delicious options they give, you certainly won’t want to miss their second air date.

During their first taste of QVC air time, QVC’s own Mary Louise Ludwig showed off some incredible culinary creations that were made easy, thanks to the innovative technology that we built into the pans.

Ludwig dazzled viewers with traditional cakes, stuffed with delicious fruit and cream fillings. But, she also showed off some non-traditional recipes that we’ve been salivating over ever since!

Among just a few of the incredible options were a spaghetti cake with meatballs in the middle, cornbread stuffed with taco meat and a stuffing cake with turkey and gravy in the middle, topped with cranberry!

According to Ludwig, the pans are perfect for novice bakers who aspire to do something extraordinary in the kitchen.

“If you love to bake and you want to be successful and you want to do something different and you want to do that standout dessert for the holidays that nobody has seen, this is a simple, easy way to do it,” said Ludwig.

Simple? Easy? Delicious? Sounds like a Better Way to bake!

In the coming weeks, we’ll share some reviews from QVC viewers who picked up a Fill N Flip pans. We’ll also keep you posted when the pans are scheduled to hit the air again!

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:

WOW! Can finally make meat loaf.

Overall Rating

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!
