About Mom Invented

Tamara Monosoff

Mom Inventors, Inc. Founder Tamara Monosoff

Established by Tamara Monosoff, a mother and inventor, Mom Inventors, Inc. is comprised of three key elements: consumer products with the trademarked Mom Invented® brand, an online community providing Information, Interaction & Inspiration; and educational offerings for women entrepreneurs.

What we do

Mom Invented® has a two-part mission.

For the online and educational portion of my business, the mission is to…
Inspire, inform & boldly promote courageous women in business


For the consumer products side of my business, the mission is to…
Celebrate the creativity of moms by launching innovative Mom Invented® products around the world.

There are two paths to inventing

We celebrate and support women as inventors and entrepreneurs. In this process of inventing there are many routes one can take, but there are two general approaches: manufacturing and licensing.

  • Those who wish to take their product from concept to production to store shelves will set up shop and become "manufacturers." Our education programs and books will support you in this process.
  • Those who wish to "sell" their idea to another company and receive a smaller but passive revenue stream will "license" their inventions.

Regardless of which path you plan to pursue our books and education programs will support you in what it is that you seek to accomplish.

How we got started

In 2003, Tamara Monosoff invented the TP Saver -- a device that prevents babies and pets from unraveling the toilet paper. She quickly expanded her vision to develop a line of products invented by moms that carry the internationally trademarked Mom Invented® brand.

Tamara has since been featured on hundreds of local and national media outlets including the The Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, the London Times, People, TIME, US News & World Report, New Yorker, and Oprah magazines. She has appeared on the Today show, NBC Nightly News, Good Morning America, The Montel Show, CNN, NPR, and BBC.

Today, Mom Invented® products, which all include a photo of the mom inventor, are sold in over 8000 stores in the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe.

Tamara has written two books: The Mom Inventors Handbook (McGraw-Hill, 2005) followed by her second book, Secrets of Millionaire Moms (McGraw-Hill, 2007), and her next book launching in fall 2010. She is also the “Expert Inventing” columnist for and the Startup Smarts columnist for
