With gorgeous earth tones, quality silicone materials and clever designs, Mushie might just be your new favourite brand when it comes to quality children’s dinnerware.
Best known for its Scandinavian designed silicone baby bibs, children’s dinnerware and toys., Mushie was founded in 2018 by Mushie and Levi Feigenson in a spare bedroom in their home in south-west Houston.
Czech Republic-born Mushie met Houston-born Levi in New York City, where she was working as a teacher, and he was working as a marketing and e-commerce consultant. The pair married and had their first son but, when Mushie was pregnant with their second, she was diagnosed with hyperemesis, meaning she had to leave her job and be put on bed rest.
It turned out to be a blessing in disguise. During this difficult period, Mushie had plenty of time to research and find the best products for her baby. Both she and Levi were disappointed with the lack of aesthetically pleasing, practical baby products and soon, Mushie, the company, was born (along with their second son).
Their dinnerware is made from BPA-free polypropylene plastic and are dishwasher safe, microwave safe and perfect for post-dinner clean up. Get everything you need from plates to bowls to cups.
Their silicone bibs are made from food-grade silicon and are specially designed for a comfortable fit – they’ve got built-in neck fasteners and a deep front pocket, perfect for catching food while your baby eats and keeping the surrounding area clean. To clean, simply wash with soap and leave to air dry. They even feature classic patterns like a gorgeous sun print, sweet rainbows and all the earth tones you could ever want.
Mushie’s product design is done in Houston and Sweden by a team of designers, led by Mushie herself. The products are made in the US, Denmark, Turkey and Asia.
