UPDATE: See the press release announcing the recent success of the OnTray.
“Innovative and award-winning snap-on shopping cart tray is available in more than 200 stores in U.S. and abroad ”
I love stories like this. A mom has an idea to solve one of life’s little problems and she has the drive and passion to make it happen. Way to go Laura!

Here is Laura’s story in her own words:
“A few of years ago, I was at the grocery store with all three of my boys. Jack and Luke were “driving” the shopping cart that looks like a truck. Ty, not even a year yet, was up front in the child seat part of the cart. I was handing him one snack at a time from a container that I carried with me everywhere I went. I was trying to shop, contain my “little truck drivers”, browse through my coupons, keep Ty happy and get all of the items on my list. Needless to say, I came home with a bunch of junk that Jack and Luke threw in the cart and was completely frazzled. I swore never to go shopping with the kids again! That day, while the children were napping, I did some research on the web and found there wasn’t a product available that would free up adult hands to shop and keep little hands busy. OnTray was born. It was born out of necessity.
The great thing about OnTray, other than it makes shopping with your young children a little more enjoyable, is that it is multifunctional. It can be used as a container for your coupons, a shopping list and a small calculator. OnTrayTM stores easily in a diaper bag or purse. There’s no reason to carry more than one container of food for your children.”
Necessity is the mother of invention. My son is in the 5th grade so I don’t foresee buying an OnTray in the near future but there are always grand-kids and baby shower gifts.
I know how hard it can be to promote your products so spread the work to your friends about this blog and the innovative products and the creative people behind them
