Mom Inventors Land Their Products In Major Retailers

Posted: Updated:

Whether it's a second career, time to think during maternity leave, or simple necessity, these moms found a way to turn their everyday problems into products. The LA Times wrote about mom inventors hitting it big by scoring a distribution deal with a major retailer (check out this cute video of Soleil Moon-Frye seeing her baby clothing line at Target for the first time), but in the internet age, you don't need a storefront to sell your wares. Mom Invented is a space for women to sell their inventions (see a video of product demos), and many women still set up their own individual websites (see Paci-Plushies, DaysAgo timers, and Pop Pals) in addition to any online or in-store retailers they land. Here's a round up of California-Mom inventions that are making life cleaner, saner, and more fun.
