Hollywood Celebrities Innovate with Davison

Davison News, Inventor Stories, Product News

At Davison, we take pride in helping many aspiring inventors fine-tune their invention ideas and turn them into new products. As we bring ideas through our product development process, our dedicated team and clients both hope for product success.

With the help of our licensing department, Davison has moved new products into more than 1,200 retail and online stores! In terms of “product success,” we’d say this is a pretty big deal for those clients who’ve had the opportunity to see and touch their products on store shelves!

Clients came to Davison for inventing expertise and innovation. Stores have found Davison products to be innovative enough for the shelves. And lately, that innovation has driven celebrities to stamp their approval on Davison client products!

Diana’s Chilly Mat

Diana couldn’t stand to see her precious pets panting from the heat. Through our product development process, Davison was able to bring designs for Diana’s “Chilly Mat” to life and to store shelves! After selling in stores like Home Depot, Wayfair and HugsPetProducts.com, the Chilly Mat made its way into the hands and packaging of pet-lover Paula Deen!

Jennifer’s Hanger Pockets

Jennifer came to Davison with her idea for Hanger Pockets as a convenient way to organize and pair accessories with their matching outfits! Though she loved the original product design and packaging, when she found out it was being licensed and repackaged under her cooking and baking mentor Paula Deen’s Everyday collection for Jokari/US, Inc., she was thrilled!

Jean’s Meatball Baker

If there’s one well known QVC chef that knows how to cook healthier, it’s Chef Tony Notaro! So, how perfect would it be that Davison client Jean’s Meatball Baker that elevates meatballs out of their own grease when baking would stir up an idea for yet another new product? The Bacon Baker became part of Love Cooking Company’s Chef Tony line of healthy bakeware.

Justin’s Dessert Diva

Davison client Justin had an idea for a better way to carry and serve tasty treats and desserts. While his original product was licensed to Love Cooking Company, who would have thought that an entire line of new carry and serve options would later be derived from Justin’s original product! Just check out Love Cooking Company’s new Decadent Delights collection by leading wedding and entertaining expert David Tutera!

Congratulations to these and other clients who’ve gotten to see their product reach “celebrity status!” Do you need help with your idea? Confidentially submit your invention idea today!

You’ll Want to Sit Down for This…

Curved Bench - George Davison Invention

In previous blogs, we talked about the idea of failing forward and not letting failure derail your progress.

Our very own founder and CEO George Davison is a testament to this notion as he stayed persistent after the failed invention of his toothbrush sanitizer idea.

Though failure could have stopped him in his tracks, he decided to push forward and achieve many other great things and create many great inventions along the way.

As National Inventors Month is quickly coming to a close, we couldn’t think of a Better Way to close out this month-long celebration than by introducing George Davison’s latest invention, the Curved Bench that has recently hit the market!

And there’s no better person to share this exciting news than Mr. Davison himself!

Curved Bench - George Davison Invention

“When I used to coach soccer, the benches were always straight and I was always frustrated because I couldn’t get my kids to rally in a half circle and focus on the coaching,” said Mr. Davison.

Recently, Mr. Davison walked on our loading dock to find his newest invention had just come in! “I [saw it and] said ‘It is! It’s here!’ I just wanted to share the news. It’s awesome!” said Mr. Davison.

Can’t you just feel the excitement?!

The Curved Bench has been licensed to Creative Outdoor Distributors and this six-seat bench is now available for purchase through both Amazon.com and Overstock.com!

As George Davison excitedly told us, this innovative product is great for a variety of activities like sporting events and sitting around a campfire with your family and friends!

Here are some more pictures for you to enjoy of Mr. Davison seeing his product for the first time!

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!

What Happened in Vegas… We’ve Got to Share!

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:

While Davison regularly attends trade shows in a number of industries, it does not promise that any particular client product will be, or is likely to be, presented or discussed at a trade show.

The Excitement Continues After the International Home + Housewares Show

Davison News, Trade Shows

It’s been one week since the 2015 International Home + Housewares Show (IHHS) wrapped up in Chicago.

Last week, we elaborated on the Global Pet Expo and some of the hype that Paula Deen is bringing to the pet products and packaging that we’ve designed at our invention factory, Inventionland for Hugs Pet Products. And, you can bet that excitement followed to the IHHS, where Culinary Professional Chef Tony Notaro and Love Cooking Company representatives showed off their innovative products. In addition to featuring Love’s innovative Mrs. Fields cookware and bakeware products, Love’s booth also showcased delicious creations by Chef Tony himself. In fact, Chef Tony’s Miracle Meatloaf Pan was the hit of the show where he was making deliciously-filled meatloaves right there on the spot. Not to mention, the Dessert Diva and the Fold N Store were also well-received at the IHHS!

Who knows, that excitement might just carry over to another QVC appearance in the next 30-60 days!

The great news didn’t stop there. In fact, you can expect to see the Davison “D” on some new products at Walmart. We can’t wait to hear what comes next from the Love Cooking Company! However, the “icing on the cake” if you will doesn’t stop at just the Love Cooking Company; in fact, they weren’t only company that was showing off the Davison “D” at the IHHS.

That’s because the Petal Clips and the Scrub Gator that were both designed at our invention factory, Inventionland and were licensed to Jokari were International Housewares Association (IHA) Innovation Award Finalists at this year’s IHHS! The pictures were plentiful at this year’s IHHS! Take a look!

All in all, we think that it’s safe to say that the IHHS 2015 was quite the success for both the Love Cooking Company and Jokari!

Davison Products Have Sold in 1,200 Stores!

Davison News, Product News

It seems like only yesterday when our founder and CEO, George Davison excitedly smashed a 9-liter bottle of champagne in our creative workspace, Inventionland, in celebration of reaching a monumental company milestone:

Though that was not long ago, we have continued to add retailers at astounding rates. Today, we’re pleased to announce that the number of stores and online retailers that have carried Davison-designed products and packaging solutions has reached 1,200!

According to Davison, Walmart was the invention industry leader’s first store; but, in 25 years, many more retailers have been added to the list of stores that have carried Davison designs.

Davison’s own invention dream launched the company back in 1989. Since then, he has perfected his Better Way to Invent and brought all aspects of the inventing process under one roof, Inventionland, the 61,000 square foot design facility that churns out 2,200 – 2,400 new inventions each year for every day inventors and corporate clients, alike.

As an inventor, Davison said that one of his greatest rewards is seeing Davison-designed products reach store shelves.

“I find it extremely rewarding to bring an idea for a new product to life… then, actually see it in packaging and on the store shelf. There is nothing more exciting,” said Davison.

Today, you can find Davison-designed products and packaging solutions in big-name retailers like Target, Kohl’s and The Home Depot. There are also hundreds of niche retailers that have added that Davison “D” to their store shelves.

Groupon Sells Out of Davison’s Hot and Cold Back-Therapy Brace Within Hours

Davison News, Featured Invention, Innovative Inventions, Inventions

If you haven’t heard of the deal-of-the-day website, Groupon, the chances are good that you may have been living under a rock for the past five years or so. While that may be a drastic statement, it is safe to say that Groupon is everywhere!

The global leader in commerce works something like this… every 24 hours, the brains behind the operation offer up an electronic coupon for a product, restaurant or service at typically 40-60% below cost.

Other than sharing sheer innovation in common, Groupon and Davison now have another link; we’re excited to announce that a Davison-designed product has been featured as one of Groupon’s showcased products!

In fact the Hot and Cold Back-Therapy Brace, which was licensed by Health Enterprises, was not only featured; but, it SOLD OUT in just a few, short hours!

While you can no longer purchase the Hot and Cold Back-Therapy Brace on Groupon, you can see what the site had to say about the Davison-designed product:

“A series of gel packs lines the brace to treat any aches with either hot or cold therapy. Its sturdy construction also helps protect against new problems by placing firm yet comfortable pressure on the lower back. The brace comes with five removable splints that users can remove for customized support.”

In addition to showcasing some of the product’s very functional features, Groupon also said, tongue in cheek, that the Hot and Cold Back-Therapy Brace“provides back support and a listening ear when you’re sad.” Now, that may be one feature we didn’t think of!

See the entire Hot and Cold Back-Therapy Brace Groupon offering here.

As quickly as they’re in stores, they’re on one of the 48 pages full of products on Davison.com!

We’ve just added Soda Straws, an innovative product that actually allows you reseal a can that you’ve already opened. Recently, a member of the Davison team was out shopping when he saw Soda Straws on Walmart shelves. Now, everyone can see Soda Straws on Davison.com!

We’ve all cracked open an ice-cold can of our favorite beverages and either have not been able to finish it or spilled it, because we couldn’t close it. That’s where Soda Straws come in.

They have an innovative flip-top cap to prevent spills and even keep bugs out. Also unlike ordinary straws, Soda Straws are reusable. Thirsty? Find them at Walmart!

In fact, Mr. D recently made a trip to Walmart to see the Davison-designed Soda Straws on the store shelves, take a look!

You see, what’s even greater about our product pages is that you not only get a glimpse of our products; you also learn what problems they solve and how our Better Way to Invent helped to create them! The Davison product pages even show which stores our products have sold in.

When new products hit store shelves, find them at Davison.com. Take a look at the newly-updated Soda Straws page or browse through any of the other pages full of Davison-designed products!
