Bump it. Don't dump it.

Bumpit Bowl is the result of nearly a decade of hard work. After my brother and I spilled one too many drinks at a restaurant, my dad decided to come up with a solution. Several patents later, the Bumpit Bowl was born. Bumpit Bowl stays in place with our patented StayPut Technology. Your child will never knock over a bowl again. 

What It Is

Our StayPut Technology ensures that even if you hit Bumpit Bowl hard, it won't fall down and it won't spill. StayPut Technology does not use a suction cup and is made of Grade A silicone.

See the Bumpit Bowl cartoon here: https://vimeo.com/139755177

You can use the Bumpit Bowl as a large bowl or put in a divider to store up to three kinds of food, put on the top for on-the-go use, and more. Plus, it's double insulated, which means that even if your food is hot, your bowl will be safe to touch. It also means that it will retain its temperature if you put on the top for eating on the go.

Bumpit Bowl is a BPA free, dishwasher-safe bowl that is easy to pick up and difficult to knock over on flat, smooth surfaces. It is also UL tested and approved as microwave safe. You can also completely disassemble Bumpit Bowl to clean every nook and cranny.

We hope you love Bumpit Bowl, and that it brings you as much joy as it's brought us.

Risks and challenges

No project is without its challenges. The products you see in the images are final prototypes. The tooling has begun. There are risks to any hardware project; something could go wrong with the tooling. There could be problems with our distributor. But we are experienced hardware developers and have the experience to see this through and address any issues that come our way.

The real risk is that you don't buy a Bumpit Bowl and keep spilling your food!
