Bobee

What inspired your Huggies® MomInspired™ award-winning design?

I had the idea for the Bobee when I was pregnant with my second son. We had just moved into a small apartment and I was trying to figure out where to put everything for the baby. I wanted to move the diapers and wipes up and out of the way from my toddler, but couldn’t find anything that would help do that. There were diaper caddies for the changing table, but they took up too much space. So I first used a diaper box that I mounted on the wall, then I created a Plexiglas version that inspired the prototype for the Bobee. The Bobee can hold all sizes of disposable diapers and cloth inserts, and prepackaged wipes fit in the bottom. Mounted right by a changing station, it allows you to always have one hand on your baby.

What are your plans for the future?

We’ve received a lot of positive feedback and have had some success with online sales nationally and internationally. I want to extend Bobee sales into the wholesale market, and we’re working on the photography and packaging design so we can prepare for the next step.
