Mom Invented helps moms start businesses and develop products and inventions with inventing advice, business advice and inspirational inventing help

Announcing the New Mom Invented Mom Product Review Panel!

Mom Invented® products are invented by Moms.

Now we are introducing you to our new Mom Invented Approved brand of products. Many of our customers ask us to come up with new solutions to common everyday problems. When this happens our product development team gets to work finding -- or creating -- something new that we think you will love. Therefore, we want to make sure that these items are carefully reviewed by Moms, like you, before it can display the Mom Invented “Approved” Brand.

That is why I am thrilled to introduce you to our new Mom Product Review Panel. Our Mom Ambassadors will review new products that we are considering bringing to market. Please scroll down to read about these awesome mothers!

At this time, the Mom Product Review Panel is intended to review new products that we license, produce or distribute under our trademarked Mom Invented® and Mom Invented Approved brands.  If you are looking to "license" your product to us, we will be announcing new product search opportunities, via the newsletter, in the near future.  The Mom Product Review Panel will only be reviewing items that we are considering via our product searches.

If you are looking for a way to have your product reviewed independently...stay tuned!

  1. Just read over the great products/services that are posted here. I have a unique product line that I would love to have reviewed and considered for this blog.

  2. Hi Tamara! THANK YOU for your response! Unfortunately I cannot find your message box and I'm curious about what video has been posted because I have not posted 1 myself:-( Sincerely, Tahlya

  3. Hello Ladies!

    What a great idea of Mom's helping Mom's!

    I have a company that I have been trying to get off the ground for a few years! The only thing holding me back is funding. I am patent pending, have the website created, have the toll free number and have the right company to program the Get Home Smart Card, everything is in place.

    I created the Get Home Smart Card just before my son turned 21, as any Mom, I was worried about him drinking and driving, so I thought why isn't there a card that I can give him that is ONLY for Taxi Rides? So that is how the Get Home Smart Card was created. The Get Home Smart Card is a Taxi Gift Card that is reloadable. We have a toll free number that will connect the caller to the nearest Taxi Member. It will be offered in card form and as an application.
    The Get Home Smart Card is for:
    -Teens - Give Teens the power to get out of an uncomfortable situation and arrive home alive!
    -College Students - A Smart Way To Get Around Campus
    -Young Adults - A Smart Option To Driving Impaired Or With An Impaired Driver
    -Adults - Smart Alternative To Driving After A Night On The Town
    -Seniors - Independence For Seniors Who No Longer Drive
    -Business - Simplifies Business Travel by eliminating Taxi Receipts.
    -Travel - Convenient For Travel Needs

    Please take a look at the website and see everything that the Get Home Smart Card is trying to accomplish. Together with my sister Geralyn and my cousin Karen, we have developed, created and we all would love to see this company launched to help all of us who are single Mom's and all basically unemployed working side jobs just to try to survive. Together we have put a lot of time and passion into this project.

    Please let me know what your panel thinks of our project and if you can help us with the final step in getting this Safety Minded company up and running!
