Zipit Bedding is our Fab Finds feature for the week. What is it exactly? Well I’m glad you asked! Zipit Bedding is America’s first all-in-one zippered bedding that is changing the way kids make their bed!
The idea was created by two sisters from the Los Angeles area that allows has kids (or their parents) to make the bed in just ONE zip. I don’t know about you but this would make our mornings a little easier when it comes time for the kids to make their beds before school!
The story of Zipit Bedding (https://www.zipitbedding.com) began when Jennifer, a former advertising executive and mom of three, was tired of the daily struggle of getting her kids to make their beds. Then one day, while hosting a sleepover, she had an “Aha!” moment. In the morning she watched her youngest son simply zipping up his sleeping bag and “Voila!” the once messy room was clean! She quickly realized that by combining the ease, fun and simplicity of a sleeping bag, with the look and feel of stylish kid’s bedding, she would be able to solve her problem AND finally put an end to the age-old battle between parents and their kids!
Jennifer the sought the help of her sister, Hayley Carr, a businesswoman and inventor-at-heart, to develop the product. A rough sketch of a zippered comforter drawn on a napkin, countless hours of hard work, a 401K cashed in and several prototypes later, Jennifer and Hayley were finally ready to debut their Patent Pending, innovative and time-saving product to the Nation.
The two moms also co-designed the styles for the bedding along with Alyssa Kaplan, a top Target and Walmart designer. With designs like bright, fun and uniquely themed current prints and reversible tops that are pre-coordinated to interchange with other Zipit Bedding sets these are sure to be time savers for parents and fun for kids ages 4-13. Plus all styles glow in the dark and have small pockets on the side so they can store their stuff which I know my 5 year old twins would think is the “coolest thing ever”!
Something else I love is that there will be no more kicked off covers so I know the kids will stay tucked in and warm all night and it washes as one piece so I can just throw it in the washing machine.
Inventors Hayley and Jennifer will actually be pitching Zipit Bedding on the ABC Hit Show, SHARK TANK, this Friday (2/28). There, they’ll face tough billionaire entrepreneurs: Marc Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec and Kevin O’Leary. Will Jennifer and Hayley take the bait? Or will they swim away and make their own fortune? Tune in to find out!
