Toddlers, Covered... on The Grommet!

Long before starting Mixed Pears, I was a fan of The Grommet.
Since 2008 when they started as the "Daily Grommet", they have been a strong voice for Makers and Citizen Commerce™. In their words:

We launch undiscovered products and help them succeed;
we call them Grommets. Grommets aren't just things.
Grommets are products with a purpose invented by people with stories. Buy differently. - The Grommet

The Grommet is extremely picky, historically selecting less than 3% of the products they consider. That level of curation takes commitment and passion - two things echoed in the products they highlight.

As we were planning to launch Mixed Pears, I told Christina there were a few places that I would love to see our products. The Grommet was near the top of that list.


Today, we’re excited to announce that our Suitables Role Play Bibs will be launching on The Grommet!

Suitables Role Play Bibs came out of our desire to make mealtimes a little easier on parents and a little more fun for kids. Making a bib that was cute for the parent wasn’t enough for us. They had to appeal to the wearer too!

Armed with the notion that if kids actually wanted to wear a bib parents would have an easier time getting them into one (and staying in it!) we set out to make the best costume + bib possible with today’s technology.

We needed to make something that would inspire children, so we picked a few favorite professions and animals that lots of kids love - an Astronaut, a Firefighter, a Doctor, and a Chef. We think the effect is brilliant.

Kids agree, and importantly, so do the fine folks at The Grommet!

P.S. We love the products that we’ve found over the years on The Grommet. Some of our favorites include:
  • Bananagrams – Addictive spelling game for the whole family.
  • Bitybean – A packable, elegant, baby carrier from Vermont!
  • EzPz Happy Mat – The original suction mat that kids and parents love
  • Osmo – Digi-Physical gaming for iPads - it’s almost magic, seriously.
