Even though we’ve said goodbye to summer, it’s still just as important to make sure your kids are well hydrated. Mini Hippo’s newest addition, Squeasy Gear, helps with that.
The Squeasy Gear journey started back in 2011 when disposable food pouches were all the rage, beloved for their convenience – but avoided for their price and plastic wastage.
Husband-wife duo Kiley and Clarissa Wilson decided to change that. The pair were on a mission to find the perfect product to serve their four kids their favourite smoothies and purees, and when they couldn’t, they decided to make the product themselves.
“We knew exactly what we wanted, but it did not exist,” says Clarissa. “So, we got some paper and a pencil and the first ever sketches of the Squeasy Snacker game to life.”
“We started listing all the features our dream feeding container had to have,” says Kiley. “’Are we really considering making this?’ we asked ourselves. ‘We have to!’ was the response.”
But they weren’t the only ones to have the same ‘Ah-ha!’ moment. Nowadays, you can find a number of different products that all try to meet the same demand for parents seeking a good reusable feeding pouch. But to Kiley and Clarissa’s contentment, these other products aren’t Squeasy Gear – they all use plastic, are hard to fill, leak and simply don’t work well.
“Though it was discouraging to see new products pop up while we were still perfecting the Squeasy Snacker, none of them met all the requirements we knew parents, like us, wanted for our kids,” says Clarissa. ”We took a risk as parent entrepreneurs and poured our entire heart and soul into our idea. Every time one of our children excitedly asks for their “Squeasy”, it makes it all worth it.
“We hope your family enjoys them as much as we do.”
