Meet Jennifer of Palm Palms
Tell us a little about you?
My name is Jennifer Backstein and I am the creator of a new baby bath product that my company has recently brought to market. I am a primary school teacher and also
an interior decorator however, after I had my daughter I became the creator of a brand new baby product that I think you might be interested in.
What is your business and where can I find it?
The product is called Palm-Palms (TM) baby bath grips and was inspired from the anxiety I felt toward giving my newborn her first bath. I knew that a wet baby
could be slippery and tough to handle so I created Palm-Palms baby bath grips to help assist me in the bathing process. Palm-Palms are designed to be worn on the hands of a caregiver during baby bath time or shower time. Our research has made it very clear that anxiety over bathing babies and young children is very common
amongst both new and experienced parents. The primary function of the product is to provide an amazingly secure grip on the slippery skin of a baby or toddler.
It's just like the secure feeling of holding a baby wrapped in a towel! The soft terry cloth grips also double as washcloths even while remaining on the
caregivers hands. Fingers and thumbs are left exposed to allow direct contact with baby's skin as well as accurate testing of water temperature and easy
handling of bath accessories such as shampoo and baby wash. The grips are one size fits all and conform snugly on any hand due to the incorporated stretch
fabric. They come in three colours: pink, blue and white.
Palm-Palms baby bath grips can be purchased from our on-line website at www.palm-palms.com. When visiting our website you can learn a lot more about our product and where we have been featured. As well, Palm-Palms baby bath grips are being sold in a number of well known baby stores in and around the Toronto area.
Is it mom-owned, invented, created.....?
Yes! Palm-Palms baby bath grips was invented by me during my maternity leave. My husband and I were always bathing our newborn baby together for fear that we would drop her if we were to do it alone. We began to research products that were currently on the market to help assist us and all that we could find were products that you placed the baby into but nothing that provided a no-slip grip while holding and bathing. We started to brainstorm ideas of what we thought would be the best solution to this problem and that is how Palm-Palms baby bath grips were created.
A little about your entrepreneur journey so far?
Our journey so far has been very interesting. At first it was a little discouraging since I was not familiar in any way with this industry. It took a lot of time and effort to get retailers to speak with me and help bring my product into their stores. I received a lot of positive feedback about Palm-Palms which helped me continue pursuing my product. I had an overwhelming response to the product from prenatal and postnatal audiences I have a greater than 90% purchase rate with only a short five minute talk and demonstration and it became apparent that new and experienced parents were excited to have a product that makes baby bath time less intimidating and stressful.
