About


       Hello! Our names are Laura and Amber Brewer, we are a mother and daughter partnership in our startup business MyLittleB, Inc. 

    We have created an invention, The EatNPlay Tiny Tray, specifically designed for ages 6 months and up. We are glad to announce that our tray is now PATENTED! YAY! The tray is an injection mold made from polypropylene, a very versatile plastic. It does not mold or deteriorate and is BPA free, supplying a non toxic surface safe for children to eat off of. For younger children who want to gnaw on the table, there is a cushioned edge; safe to put their mouth on, as opposed to a restaurant table that may not be cleaned so thoroughly. The cushion also provides support for babies new to the highchair who still lean over and hit their head. Along the left side of the tray is a hook. This allows for toy attachments, amongst other things. Parallel to the cushioned edge are two raised bars, which allows for placement of objects such as learning boards, books, kindles, etc. PHONES ARE OPTIONAL. The perimeter of the tray is raised, preventing spills of liquids. Our All purpose tray acts as a safe and comfortable mess free dining surface!

The hook also allows for attachment of other items. Here we have a pouch holding colored pencils, allowing for multiple types of play.

    A year ago we realized we needed a solution to various problems involving our granddaughter and niece. Imagine this, after a stressful day at work you decide to go out to eat to avoid the struggle of cooking. Now try to enjoy your meal and hold a conversation while your child throws his or her toys on the ground. Your baby may be teething and your repeatedly trying to keep them from biting that dirty edge of the table, YUCK! They are getting irritable waiting for the food to arrive so as a last resort you try to prop up your cell phone to entertain them. You place their food in front of them and they pick it up and throw it or push it aside. You were not able to enjoy yourselves, instead your soothing or picking up after your child. Why settle for this type of night out? Our product is designed to solve these issues. No more hassles, attach your tray to the table and let it do the work for you.

   To this date, it has been nearing two years since we began our invention process. We started with an idea and have spent months sorting through proof of concepts, 3d renderings, making adjustments and revisions, and deciding on materials safe for our children and yours. Through the help of our manufacturer we were able to accomplish developing a design that attaches to tables functioning for both eating and playing.

     We would be eternally grateful for this funding opportunity because we have put in a lot of hard work and dedication. Spending the past year utilizing our time and efforts throughout this process, we are in the middle of an adventure that we are not looking to give up on. We are highly motivated and trying to make a difference in the lives of parents, seeing as we are a strongly knit family. In the years to come we plan on giving back to the communities that so graciously helped us along our journey. We aren't takers, we are givers. So feel free to give your love and support by pledging!!

Risks and challenges

RISKS AND CHALLENGES

Our biggest risks at this stage are the costs of manufacturing minimum order quantities of our product and getting this campaign in front of enough interested audiences. We're putting quantity caps on our rewards for the product, so that we can make sure our manufacturer has the time and ability to deliver our products in a timely fashion to our valued backers. Our next concern is to finish our injection mold tooling. After that, lab testing will begin. Challenges may arise during this time, needing revisions to ensure safety measures which in turn may delay production. We have done our best to cover all bases in order to make sure that you get your rewards quickly and efficiently. We'll keep you informed every step of the way so you know exactly where your reward is in the timeline.
