Kids are incredible. Whether it's their endless bundle of energy or their simple nature and mindset, it's a joy to be around them. As a former camp counselor, I've seen the highs and lows of watching over kids. As great as they are, they can also be a little clumsy. A misfortune that every parent runs into is their child spilling his or her drink all over the place, especially on the carpet. Being no strangers to the mentioned experience, Michelle Ivankovic (mother of two) and Sativa Turner (baby on the way) of Double Double have found a much needed solution for both the parents and the kids.
Already having the experience of successfully completing two different crowdfunding projects, Michelle and Sativa are adding SipSnap, the ultimate spill-proof lid, to their parent/kids focused product line. SipSnaps are BPA-free and Phthalate-free silicone lids that can stretch over any tumbler, helping children avoid a spillage. As expressed, "The elastic flexibility and strength of the silicone ensure a tight fit around any cup. Whether your kid knocks it over or walks around with it upside down, you can feel safe knowing you won’t end up with a puddle of liquid." Also, these dishwasher safe lids don't take up a lot of space, making it easy for parents to take their SipSnap anywhere they go with their kids. SipSnap comes in two different variations, accommodating for different age groups. The SipSnap TOT is for the little ones and has a durable, chew resistant spout. SipSnap KID is for younger kids that enjoy drinking from a straw, as the straw hole on the lid is flexible enough for any straw size.
With 27 days still left to go in the campaign, Double Double is already well over their target goal of raising $28,000. I had the opportunity to speak with Sativa about their project, and she expressed her excitement about the progress of SipSnap. She noted that her team is currently working on a few ideas for their stretch goals, providing more options for backers.
During our conversation, I was intrigued to learn more about the direction Sativa and Michelle wanted to take with SipSnap and Double Double in general. I was excited to hear that Sativa and her business partner have a few other unique ideas that they will approach once they make headway with SipSnap. They would love to see SipSnap grow and become a popular household item and potentially find its way on the shelves of retailers. With the experience and passion that Sativa and Michelle have, it's easy for me to believe that Double Double will continue its current path with success, providing great products for parents and kids along the way.
Overall, knowing that the juice will not end up on the carpet POPs.
