About

At Weesips, we set out to solve a problem. The problem we encountered involved a busy parent with young kids who found herself in a messy accident on a plane.  A typical accident can require a 10-15 minutes of cleaning. For those of us who provide kids a beverage in a can, Weesips Sippy lids can help minimize the mess. 

Like many creators who start with a project idea, our founder is a busy parent with 4 active kids. On a flight one day, she was tending to her 4 children. They each received canned beverages from a flight attendant. As one child needed help with his asthma, the plane flew into turbulence. Sure enough, canned beverages spilled and caused some embarrassment. She tried to recover and the idea landed in her mind. A sippy cup lid for a can. Then she had the idea designed and patented. Several batches were created until a best fitting solution was found. Now, a new set of machine tooling is required to crank up the volume and lower total production cost. New tooling will cost $20,000 US and we are looking to Kickstarter to move our project deeper into its life cycle.

Risks and challenges

Our founder, has paid the cost of all research and development so far. We have produced two batches of 2500 units or more each time. If we hit our goal and become funded, we are ready to ship rewards with no road blocks. However, creating and launching a new product comes at a high cost. Our biggest risk is a failure to get funding at Kickstarter. If we fail at this quest, it will indicate the low popularity of our awesome product. We hope to get this our Weesips Sippy cups lids into every mom's purse or carry-on bags. We really appreciate everyone's support.
