Those early days when I needed a buggy for my son Charles every day, I would often find that the buggy footmuff was damp and muddy. I didn’t like the way it looked, felt and most importantly didn’t want to put my precious boy into something that wasn’t perfectly cosy. Spending what little spare time I had removing, washing and drying the footmuff was not a favored use of my time.
I needed an anorak for my sons buggy footmuff so that I could concentrate on the more fun things in life!
I searched the market - it was possible to buy a waterproof footmuff (but the fiddly removing, bulky washing & drying problem would remain), but I could not find anything quick and easy to attach and release that was lightweight and compact that you could always have on hand to use on those 'puddley' days to keep the child's footmuff perfectly cosy. So, I set about creating a ‘footmuff anorak’.
My first prototype was made from a Waitrose plastic bag! With the assistance of Roberta Blackler and her super sewing machine skills, my drawings and plastic bag prototypes were brought to life - I wish Charles would still fit in a buggy so that I could use it myself!
The logo journey began with a favourite photo I had taken of Charles, Roberta (Mum) created a pastel picture titled ‘Sunshine & Showers’ from this photo, both the photo and picture inspired me to create the puddle time logo.
The designs are registered, the prototypes are finalised – we are ready to launch the product to market!
