Innovative Inventions, Inventions, Product News

Bed Bath and Beyond Logo

“Get your paws on these COOL products” was the subject line of an email from Bed Bath & Beyond that caught our attention!

The 20% off online offer showcased our Chillz Comfort Cooling Gel Pet Pad as the very first pet cooling item in the email!

Bed Bath and Beyond Email

You may recall that our client, Diana, came up with the idea for the Gel Pet Pad to bring comfort to her friend Bobby’s pup, Ripley, in the hot Atlanta heat.

Chillz Inventor- Diana

We can only assume that Diana is as proud as we are to see her pad featured at Bed Bath & Beyond. This isn’t the first time the retailer has suggested the item to help keep pets cool during the dog days of summer, either. But, what are they saying about the Chillz Comfort Cooling Gel Pet Pad now?

“COOL PAD, dog!”

The special email that featured the cooling mat that we designed went out to anyone who had purchased an item online from Bed Bath & Beyond over the last few months.

Congratulations to our client, Diana, on her new product idea’s continued success!

In the News: The Davison-designed Clip & Drain

Product News

Davison- designed Clip & Drain

It’s National Inventors Month and this month-long event celebrates inventions and creativity; at Davison, we have lots of both, thanks to our innovative inventors!

On Wednesday, May 6, one of our client’s inventions, the Clip & Drain, was featured on NECN, an NBC affiliate in New England.

The Davison-designed Clip & Drain was invented by our client in order to create a Better Way to drain pasta and more. It was featured in the celebrity-edition of “Does it Work?” and we couldn’t be more excited to share the news with you!

Celebrity chef Chris Coombs from Deauxave in Boston’s Back Bay put our client’s invention to the test to see if the Clip & Drain would live up to its promise of fitting on the edge of most sizes of pots and pans to take the place of bulky colanders.

In the segment, Coombs tested everything from pasta to potatoes to see if the Clip & Drain stood by its tagline: now draining won’t be a strain.

Did the Clip & Drain pass the test? You’ll have to watch the video to find out!

The Clip & Drain is available in stores like Sur La Table, Home Depot and Target to name a few. Get yours today!

QVC Shoppers Continue to Say Great “Stuff” About the Miracle Meatloaf Pan!

Product News

QVC Miracle Meatloaf PanICYMI: On Monday, Chef Tony and the Miracle Meatloaf Pan that we designed at Davison appeared on QVC’s “In the Kitchen with David” for the second time already this year!

Well, you don’t get monthly QVC appearances if QVC shoppers don’t have some great “stuff” to say about your product! So, today, we’d like to take a look at just some of the reasons why the Davison-designed Miracle Meatloaf Pan carries such an awesome customer-review rating on QVC’s website.

Miracle Meatloaf Pan

Take it from “Grandma Andy,” who titled her four-star review

“Hubby Loves it.”

“I got this for my husband. He is the cook at our house. He loves it. He made a stuffed meatloaf with cheese and mashed potatoes. It was so yummy!”

“Tomby,” who also gave the pan a four-star review, says, “Try it….. You’ll be happy you did!”

“Wished I would have had this pan years ago…… I do not use the press as I like to put more in the meat loaf and roll like a jelly roll……
So easy to lift out and slice………… ”

And, on to a five-star rating from “Joycesp,” who titled her review, “LOVE IT.”

“I used this pan yesterday on meatloaf. Put cheese in the middle. Works great. I made beer bread with it today. Works really good. LOVE it. I will use it more than I think.”

All in all, the Miracle Meatloaf Pan has been reviewed 45 times on QVC and we know that Monday’s appearance sold over 8,500 more units, so we can’t wait to see even more great stuff that is sure to come in future reviews!

Chilly Mat Inventor Shares Story with Hometown Newspaper

Davison News, Product News

Chilly Mat- Page 6

When Diana Edington, the inventor of the Chilly Mat, noticed that her new puppy was having a hard time getting comfortable, she decided to take matters into her own hands.

That’s exactly what our client inventor told “The Banner,” a Carthage, Indiana, newspaper that recently published an article about their hometown-inventing hero.

Hugs Pet Products- Chilly Mat

“I had a puppy that was very tiny, and was looking for a way to make her feel not only comfortable, but secure,” she said. “At the time, she was in a crate. We put things in the kennels with them or their doghouses to help them stay comfortable through the winter, and you can do that with blankets. But, in the summer, blankets are too hot.”

Like many of our clients, Edington found a Better Way to do something… in her case, help her puppy stay cool and comfortable.

To help with her invention idea, Edington found Davison online; she contacted us and we continued to brainstorm on her idea with her.

“Once we had the general ideas in place, they took off with it from there… Davison is very good about taking the ideas that you throw at them and making it in a way that will benefit the company as well as you…” said Edington.

The Chilly Mat, Edington’s invention recently has been featured as a limited-time deal on coupaw.com and at a Bed Bath & Beyond store in Ohio. But, wait… there’s more!

Edington herself will be visiting Davison soon! Stay tuned to hear more about her visit!

Until then, here’s Diana Edington and the Chilly Mat’s story below:

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!

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.

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!

Hydro Bone Celebrated by NBC’s Petside.com as ‘Beat the Heat’ Solution

Davison News, Product News

Petside.com – an NBC Universal company that covers pet health, behavior, lifestyle and trends, highlighting the joys and challenges of having pets by serving up current, topical content from around the pet care world – featured Davison’s Hydro Bone in its “9 Products to Keep Your Pet Cool” article.

Petside’s Charlotte Reed writes, “Combining fun and chewing-refreshment, the Hydro Bone is the ultimate hydrating chew toy for your pet. The molded dog toy has a foam core, which absorbs and holds liquid. Simply soak the Hydro Bone in water and it slowly releases water to quench your dog’s thirst and keep [him or] her hydrated as [he or] she plays. The Hydro Bone is also freezable for lasting enjoyment.”

The Hydro Bone was created by a dog lover, who knew there had to be a better way to keep her puppy hydrated while in the car. Diane DiRaimo loved taking her Japanese Chin puppy Alexander James for rides, 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!

Dogs need water, and dogs love bones, right? So Diane brought her idea for a hydrating bone to Davison, where fellow animal lover and Creationeer, 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.

The Hydro Bone, which was selected as a Dog Fancy Editor’s Choice Winner, comes in three sizes, for dogs and puppies six weeks and older. The water-holding toy combines refreshment with fun, so it quenches your dog’s thirst while playing. When soaked, the molded rubber bone’s foam core absorbs water (just like a sponge), which is then released through specially designed holes as the toy is squeezed. The durable Hydro Bone is also freezable for lasting refreshment and cooling.

Congratulations to Diane and the Davison team for whetting the appetites of national pet pundits!
