Client Reactions to a Professional Team

Client Feedback, Davison News, Inventor Stories


Thanksgiving may have come and gone as we continue closer to more upcoming holidays, but at Davison, we’re thankful for our clients every day. Each and every client we work with has placed their trust in us as a team of professionals that can help move their invention idea forward.

While we are thankful for our clients and the ideas they have to provide “a better way,” we also appreciate the feedback they often give us. As a client inventor continues on their inventing journey, we send them a Pre-Development Portfolio for review and so they can provide feedback on their experience so far.

Receiving this feedback is helpful on multiple fronts because it helps us grow as a company. What can we improve to better service our inventor community? What are we doing well that clients continue to appreciate?

We’re always excited to see so many clients happy to be working with our team at Davison. Check out some of their feedback!

Davison Client Justin’s Dessert Carrier Available at Bed Bath & Beyond!

Davison News, Featured Invention, Inventor Stories

David Tutera Decadent Delights Carrier

At Davison, there’s not much sweeter than when we can help a client inventor fine-tune their ideas and turn them into new products. By guiding a client and their invention idea through our product development process, the ultimate hope is for product success.

So, what is sweeter? How about when products begin selling in major big-box retailers?

Just this week, the Davison licensing department announced that client Justin’s dessert carrier idea has made its way to Bed Bath & Beyond – online and within 35 select brick-and-mortar stores across the nation!

It’s a huge win for Managing Senior Directors of Licensing Matt and Bob and client Justin, who’ve been working to bring the dessert carrier such success since 2012. In reality, this further bit of success is just another piece of the success pie as Justin’s dessert carrier had initially been licensed to Love Cooking Company who later relaunched the product under their David Tutera Decadent Delights collection, after solidifying a partnership with the celebrity wedding and entertaining expert in 2015.

“Love Cooking informed me that the entire David Tutera Decadent Delights line is now available for sale at Bed Bath & Beyond online!” said Matt. As you can imagine, this news really helped to jumpstart Matt’s week and we couldn’t be happier for client Justin!

Bed Bath & Beyond Website

According to Matt, Justin’s dessert carrier and the rest of Love Cooking Company’s entire David Tutera Decadent Delights collection will be tested in the 35 select Bed Bath & Beyond stores through the month of November. If all goes well, the line could be featured on Bed Bath & Beyond store shelves indefinitely!

Congratulations on a job well done by Davison’s licensing department and to client inventor Justin on a sweet idea! Do you also have a sweet idea? Confidentially submit your idea here.

Davison News, Hugs Pet Products, Inventions, Trade Shows

SuperZoo LogoSuperZoo 2015 has just wrapped up in sunny Las Vegas, but our friends at Hugs Pet Products took full advantage of the three-day national show for pet retailers by showcasing some of our latest pet products and packaging designs.

They’ve shared a few snapshots with us and today we’re giving you a look at all of the innovative pet product fun!

Paula Deen had quite the presence at the Hugs’ booth, where the company showcased items that ranged from Deen’s new dog food line to our client Diane’s Hydro line of cooling pet chew toys!

And, it seems that buyers (and their pets) thought our client Diana’s invention idea, the Chillz Comfort Cooling Gel Pet Pad, was pretty cool, too!

Once again, it looks like the products and packaging that we designed have made quite a splash with trade show attendees! Here’s even more proof from SuperZoo 2015 in Las Vegas:

Davison-Designed Pampering Products Stay Ahead in Trends!

Davison News, Featured Invention, Product News

Two of the hottest Davison-designed beauty products are continuing to pick up steam in the fashion world. Already popular with online trendsetters, the TheraPED  and the Manicure Multitool are featured in the Fall 2013 edition of Trends Magazine!

The Manicure Multitool, invented by our late client, Cathalene, makes at-home manicures and pedicures a breeze with six essential nail tools.

After Davison helped complete the design for the two products, it didn’t take long for Health Enterprises, Inc. President Brendan Leonard to take notice and license the items.

Now, the pampering must-haves will be sharing the spotlight on page 56 of the Fall 2013 issue of Trends Magazine!

Deemed “the magazine” for Canadian fashion retailers, Trends provides Canadian fashion buyers with “the most comprehensive, searchable and up-to-date directory of suppliers and contact information available to the Canadian fashion industry.”

The Better Tether Featured on Lifetime’s ‘The Balancing Act’ Friday Morning (8/17/12)

Dare to Invent, Inventor Stories, The Balancing Act

George Davison (Founder & CEO of Davison) and the inventor of the Better Tether Ed Yoder (as part of his Dare to Invent episode) will be featured on the next episode of Lifetime’s “The Balancing Act,” America’s premier one-hour women’s morning show dedicated to creating trusted solutions for today’s woman.

Mr. D and host Kristy Villa (Friday, August 17, 2012 at 7:00 a.m.) will talk about the Davison Inventing method and the Better Tether before and after the airing of george davison ed yoder inventor of better tetherEd’s episode of “Dare to Invent” – the webisode series that explores what can happen when everyday people work with Davison to make their invention ideas a reality.

Ed desired a more convenient and humane way to tether his dog outdoors! He got tired of his precious pup’s chain knocking over the food and water bowl while the pet was tethered in the yard… not to mention, the dish and the chain were often in the way of the lawnmower! Ed brought his idea for a “better” tethering device to Davison.

Unlike traditional tethers that wrap around trees or unwieldy stakes, Ed’s tether is secured to the ground, eliminating an obstacle to pets, humans and machines. The divided food and water bowl can never be tipped over and the entire unit sits lower than the blades of a lawnmower and never has to be moved. hugs pet products better tetherA leash can be attached directly to the strong steel post, and the vivid orange color makes the bowl highly visible.

Congratulations to Mr. Davison, Ed and the Davison Creationeers for getting the chance to showcase the Dare to Invent – Better Tether episode to a national audience!

More Dare to Invent episodes and Mr. Davison will be featured on “The Balancing Act” throughout 2012. We will keep you updated on dates and times as they become available.

Davison Dads: EMS Marine, Inventor and Father Demands a Hard Edge

Davison News, Inventor Stories, Product News

Marines are tough and their brownies should be as well, at least according to Davison inventor Joe Springer. Joe preferred the crispy edges of his baked goods so much that he would pilfer the crusty corners of his family’s freshly baked brownies.

“I would cut around the edges and my wife and mother in-law would yell. Of course, it was me,” exclaims Springer. Joe created the Silicone Dessert Bar Pan to relieve himself of his brownie-bandit ways and to provide others with a neater and easier way to bake brownies and other desserts. Unlike metal bakeware, this silicone pan is flexible and remains cool to the touch. The 12 candy-bar shaped molds can be filled with brownie batter, Rice Krispie treats or cookie dough; and, each piece comes out perfect.

Not only is Joe’s Silicone Dessert Bar Pan a hit with QVC hosts, who proclaim “You’ve got a corner in every bite!” but he and his family get a lot of enjoyment and pride from his creation.

“The Silicone Dessert Bar Pan has benefited my family in a couple of ways. We have the pan and my wife does enjoy baking with it. We have given some to friends and it is neat to give someone a product that you have invented,” Joe says about his creation.

Joe, who will spend this year’s Father’s Day with his dad, son and the rest of his family, has passed the creative juice to his son, Joey, 14. “My son is always telling me of ideas of things that he wants to invent. He is pretty creative and the fact that Dad created something gives him proof that it can be done.”

Joe exemplifies how hard work and dedication can overcome the obstacles of a demanding market.

Happy Father’s Day to Joe and dads all across the land!

“Dare to Invent” Refreshes Your Pet!

Davison News, Inventor Stories, Product News

Springtime sunshine has just begun to prepare us for the dehydration dangers that hot, summer sun can pose to our pets.  However, have no fear, a new “Dare to Invent” webisode is here with a refreshing solution!

Tonight’s webisode is the tenth in our 13-episode series and features Diane DiRaimo, inventor of the Hydro Bone, her adorable Japanese Chin puppy, Alexander James, and our lovable cast of Creationeers!  You can absorb the latest “Dare to Invent” webisode NOW on YouTube and

Diane loved taking Alexander James for rides in the car, but she had a hard time keeping him hydrated and happy on long trips.  She knew putting a water bowl in the car or feeding him out of a water bottle was out of the question… but, she thought, surely there must be a better way to provide Alexander with on-the-spot refreshment!

Diane brought her idea for a hydrating, new pet product to Davison, where fellow animal lover, Curtis, and his creative team, got to work on helping Diane’s idea soak up success, creating an absorbent chew toy with a foam core.

This week’s webisode also brings back Clay and his eccentric product-testing ways, but it all pays off in the end!  Diane’s Hydro Bone was licensed by Hugs Pet Products, has sold in Sam’s Club, Bed Bath & Beyond and many other retailers, was featured on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” was a 2010 Dog Fancy Editors’ Choice Winner and has now spawned an entire line of hydrating chew toys!

Tune in NOW for all the thirst-quenching fun as Diane “Dares to Invent!”

Catch Brownie Bowl Fever by Winning Your Own Set!

Davison News, Inventor Stories, Product News

Brownie BowlNot long ago, we introduced readers to dessert diva Christine Walker and her innovative brownie bakeware. Now, the Brownie Bowl is getting serious attention far beyond our write-ups! Christine’s bowl is getting very high praise from users on Pinterest, DIY baking website Bakerella and many other baking-savvy social sites.

To celebrate, Davison is sponsoring a Brownie Bowl giveaway that gives you the chance to be master of your dessert domain by winning a set of two Brownie Bowls from Chicago Metallic!

Not long ago, Chicago Metallic sponsored a Brownie Bowl giveaway on the Love From The Oven blog, offering the bowls as a prize for the reader with the best dessert idea. Judging by audience response, the contest and the bowls were a huge success.

Love From The Oven blogger Christi reviewed the Brownie Bowls and wrote:

“A few weeks ago, I was catching up on my favorite blogs and reading about Bakerella’s trip to the Home and Housewares Show when I spotted a new product from Chicago Metallic – an amazing mold to make Brownie Bowls. Shut the front door.  BROWNIE BOWLS. I couldn’t hurry myself over to the Chicago Metallic website fast enough.  And there they were.  An amazing set of Brownie Bowls for $10.99.  Shopping cart, checkout, start stalking UPS trucks…  And they arrived.  The UPS left them by the door and ran back to his truck (I think he’s afraid of me – sometimes I get really excited when I know that he’s bringing me stuff like, well, Brownie Bowls).

Baking Inventions

Readers and contest entrants could hardly contain themselves, commenting:

“I would make chocolate brownie bowls, filled with a chunky peanut butter frosting, topped with a chocolate drizzle. Sounds like heaven!”

“I would use a chocolate mousse filling with the brownie bowls. You are right, there are so many possibilities for the bowls.”

“How perfect! I would make SO many ice cream sundaes with these Brownie Bowls!”

“Little Rice Krispie treat cups with peanut butter mousse and chocolate. I need one of these pans!”

Bakerella readers also exclaimed:

“Looks like a fantastic time… what a fun adventure to be able to see all the new products coming out! I’m thinking that Brownie Bowl is on my wish list …”

Kitchen Inventions“Brownie Bowls?!? Holy wow!!”

“Oh Em Gee! I NEED a Brownie Bowl mold! How have I lived this long without one?!?!”

QVC customers raved:

“These Brownie Bowls are so cute and do just as they are supposed too. 5 Stars to them. The things you can do with them are endless. I encourage all to try these.”

“Fun and satisfies that different something we all search for.”

“ … it was a bit much on the chocolate (can’t believe I said that!!) but definitely delicious!! Can’t wait to try out other recipes. I think I might have to buy another set. 4 doesn’t cut it in my house!!”

Tonight’s “Dare to Invent” Brings the Heat to Your Feet!

Davison News, Inventor Stories, Product News

Davison Inventors

Tonight’s “Dare to Invent” webisode is the ninth in our 13-episode series and features Lennell Parks, inventor of the TheraPED, along with our own Creationeers! Tune in at YouTube and NOW for a “Dare to Invent” that’s both refreshing and revitalizing!

Lennell’s TheraPED is an innovative spa-therapy product that she came up with to provide comfort from the “hot feet” she experienced as a result from multiple sclerosis. The TheraPED offers cooling therapy and is designed with multi-functional gel pads that also provide moist heat for the top, sides and bottom of feet.

The story behind the TheraPED not only is a triumphant solution for Lennell’s discomfort, but also a celebration of an inventor’s ingenuity that now helps countless consumers who suffer from foot pain.

George DavisonThat ingenuity and collaborative spirit earned Lennell a surprise visit from Mr. Davison and our production team in her hometown of St. Louis! The purpose of the trip was to surprise Lennell with the very first royalty check for the TheraPED. Lennell almost arrived before any of the guests for her surprise, but her quick-thinking daughter, Jasmin, pretended to get lost on the way to the party site (a ten-minute drive from their house) and maintained the ruse!

Licensed by Health Enterprises, the TheraPED is marketed to people everywhere, who would like to provide hot or cold therapy to sore feet and toes. The product has been a big hit among yoga and Zumba bloggers and was included in gift bags at the 45th Annual Country Music Association (CMA) Awards!

Blogs covering the contents of the CMA gift bags said that the TheraPED “will pamper your feet… help stretch your feet and toes.” Z-LIFE Magazine, the official publication of Zumba Fitness, featured the TheraPED as an answer for sore, “danced-out” feet that have had a little too much merengue march.

Mr. Davison summed up the amazing collaborative effort for the TheraPED.

Dare to Invent“Everyone did a great job.  To think that this whole project started as an idea years ago and it has brought together such wonderful people all along the way… what it is really all about, isn’t it… people helping people to make the world a little better for our friends and neighbors.  Congrats to everyone at Davison, the Health Enterprises team, Lennell’s family, Lennell and all those who will benefit from this great new invention,” said Mr. Davison.

Join Lennell, Mr. Davison and the Davison team as we follow the TheraPED’s journey from concept to CMA gift bag and unveil all the exciting highlights from the surprise St. Louis trip in tonight’s ”Dare to Invent!” webisode!

From Creationeer Extraordinaire, Lucky… The Future of Interactive Computing is Now?

Davison News, Inventing Advice

The movie, “Minority Report” gave the world its first glimpse at interactive gesture-based computing, as imagined 54 years in the future. Based on “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” by legendary science fiction writer Philip K. Dick, the movie creates a future where crimes are predicted before they happen, using an incredibly-advanced computer system. The interactivity of the computer is controlled by a special set of gloves and allows the user to manipulate, organize and visualize data in three dimensions. In the year 2000, it seemed like that type of technology was well beyond our reach. Cell phones were only just getting color screens and cameras were still add-ons. There was no iPhone, no iPad and operating systems were still somewhat primitive, visually speaking. Only twelve years later, technology has surpassed “Minority Report.”

Leap, a startup that formed in 2010, has introduced the world the to Motion and it’s clear that the future is now. The Motion is a small USB device that is not much larger than a thumb drive that will allow a user to interact over various computing platforms in three dimensions. The motions that we’re used to, with the iPhone and other touchscreen devices, can be used in three dimensions. Pinch to zoom… use an index finger to scroll… rotate. It’s everything from the “Minority Report” and more. The fine level of control is more akin to that seen in 2010’s “Iron Man 2.”

At first, the device will only be compatible with Windows and OSX, but the developers plan to make it accessible to other platforms in the future. They’re making the programming open, so that anyone can develop and write applications for the device, although it’s shown in the video using existing programs and games. Unlike the Microsoft Kinect, which was outdated the moment it was released, the Motion can track motion at 100 times greater accuracy, 0.01mm to be exact. In the world of industrial design, the device could be used to draw, modify, and visualize 3D models. In the world of medicine, it could help to advance the use of 3D imaging and with the right integration, computer controlled surgery. A surgeon, assisted by robotic tools, could operate in spaces never fathomed before, as if his hands were actually inside the body of a patient. Architecturally speaking, building and information-wise, it will be possible to visualize and view date sets that, before, would be mind boggling on paper. The possibilities are endless.
