Slippo on the shelves at CVS

muddejp's Avatar

It has been a while since I have been on the site and the forums.  I know how hard it can be sometimes so I just wanted to post some good news.  My toy Slippo, short for Slippopotamus is hitting the shelves at CVS.  

The forum wouldn't let me add the picture, otherwise I would have.  I added it to my photos in my profile though.

I have been working on the toy business since my first invention that I submitted to Everyday Edisons back in 2007 I think.  Since then I have created over 30 different ideas and prototypes and made a lot of contacts going to NY Toy Fairs and ChiTag, etc. as well as being on the TV show "The Toy Box".  I believe in the many products, many avenues approach to licensing.

I have always appreciated the Edison Nation community ( I think I was one of its first members LOL) so I just wanted to share this with you all.  

Keep Inventing....

Real world question, Greg: What was your path to getting your product into CVS?

My path to CVS was not necessarily to CVS.  I licensed my product to a toy company and CVS is one of their customers.  It will be exclusively in CVS this year and will be in a variety of retailers next year.  Thanks for all the support!  I appreciate it! :)
