Hi! I’m Angelyn Myers, mom of 6, that turned an idea into a product in less than a year. The Original My “Buddy” Towel® was created out of frustration!
My daughter would always use 3 towels after a bath. (1 around her shoulders, 1 for her hair, and one wrapped around her waist!) I was tired of the unnecessary towel laundry piling up!
I turned to google to hopefully buy a solution. (Google can solve everything, right?) Well my search resulted in more frustration-realizing there wasn’t a perfect solution!
Yes, there were hooded kids towels, or bath robes, but we’ve already tried those with no luck! (they left her legs exposed and were made with polyester which left her feeling sopping wet) I needed something with full coverage and something absorbent.
Bath after bath hoping she’d use just 1 towel, maybe 2, but nope always 3. I had that nagging gut feeling that wouldn’t go away- I needed to create a full body towel!
I told my husband about my idea. He bought me a sewing machine and simply said, “go for it!” I bought 2 large bath towels, traced my daughter, cut them out, and sewed them together. It wasn’t perfect or functional! But it gave my family a better picture of what I was trying to make.
So, again I turned to google. This time to figure out how I can make a functional solution to our ongoing problem! One thing led to another and google became my best friend!
I had factory made prototypes within 2 weeks. Made a couple measurement tweaks and 2 weeks after that I had unboxed the frog and pink flamingo prototypes!
It was so exciting seeing my idea come to life! My kids were excited as well. My daughter used them right away and ever since she only uses 1 towel-The Original My “Buddy” Towel®
Simply slip on zip up and go!
