Meet Chelle of Dapper Snappers!
Get 25% off orders $25 or more! Use code minewkit.
Tell us a little about you . . . My name is Michelle and I am 37 years old (but I'm still 25 at heart!). I am an On the Go Mom of 2; a 3 1/2 year old son who just started preschool and a 21 month old daughter who likes to take on kids twice her size in the church nursery. I am happily married to a fabulous man and together we like to spend time inventing, running Cazella Innovations Inc, and raising our beautiful kids. I'm a fan of hockey and like to watch Lost, Hereos, How I met your Mother, and American Idol (not that I have time to watch these, but I catch them when I force myself to sit down and relax). Above all else, I am a Christian. What is your business and where can we find it? My business is Toddler Tech USA, a division of Cazella Innovations Inc. Our product, Dapper Snappers "Fix Droopy Drawers in a Snap!" is the perfect way to cinch up your kids' pants. The Dapper Snapper is a short piece of suspender elastic with snaps that fits in the back 3 beltloops of your child's pants and snaps over the outer 2. It is one size fits all, adjustable to 4 sizes, and it meant for children ages 9 months to 5 years. You can find them at http://www.dappersnappers.com/ as well as a few boutiques. You can also find them at http://www.toddlertechusa.com/. We plan on selling other mom-invented products on that site as well. Is it mom-owned, invented, created . . .? All of the above! My son was the inspiration for Dapper Snappers. After fighting with Dritz Fashion Fit Clips, I new there had to be a better way to keep his pants up. And I really needed that way to be adjustable. After a year in research and development, Dapper Snappers were perfected and ready to market. Dapper Snappers currently come in 9 colors and we just introduced our newest line for the fall/winter, Snapcessories™. A little about your entrepreneur journey so far? It's been amazing! I have met so many great people and made a lot of friends. I can't believe what a learning experience this all has been. I really had no idea what I was getting into when I decided that I would only use supplies made in the USA and that I would not outsource the production of Dapper Snappers. One day, I asked my husband why he didn't just kill me when I made the decision to manufacture these things myself. He said that I would have just come back from the dead and done it anyway. So true. Where else can people find you?

Joy said...

Oh I wish I'd had these when my children were little. Belts were such a hassle. I want one for each of my grandchildren. The black ones are more versitile but the colored ones would look good with a matching shirt.

What a great idea! My son's pants never seem to stay up and I was just safety pinning them in desperation. I'd chose beige

Heather Brandt said...

I love the Original Dapper Snapper (Beige for Boys! It would be handy on the trip to pick up our little boy we are adopting from Russia because we aren't positive we have bought the right sizes of clothing. We haven't seen him since July :(

I have some of these, and I LOVE THEM!!!

They really do keep my boy's pants on his skinny little butt!

My friend saw them and wants some, now.

I like the beige or olive ones best. They match most of his stuff.

Jenny said...

I like the original pink one. I need to order some of these, because I have a SKINNY daughter! Her pants are so often highwaters if they fit in the waist.

karen and co. said...

My son wears jeans every day, so the navy blue would probably be best for us.

Lady_MSnow said...

I would probably go with a navy or beige colored one. My 20 month old is so skinny that we could really use this. :D

Brandy said...

What a GREAT idea! I'd probably go with blue to use with blue jeans. Both of my little ones could use these. Thanks for the chance.

Xenia S said...

My daughter could so so so use this, her pants are always too wide in the waist if they're long enough in the leg. I would love to get her a pink Dapper Snapper but I would probably choose black because then she could wear it with everything all the time.

Thanks!

I'd love the purple with flower. Great contest, thanks!

Shell said...

Oh my gosh! I should have invented that. Its so cool and just the answer to my half a dozen kids and, there skinny waists and, droopy drawers.

I think a blue one would probably the best to start with as jeans are blue and it would blend in better.

Great work!

the pink ones

Shoshanna said...

what a great idea! My son is tall and thin and his pants are always drooping. Dapper Snappers are definitely on my wish list. I love the orange, it's so fun, but I think my first purchase will be navy or beige as they seem very versatile. Thanks for turning me on to this practical invention!
