The story of NumNum begins over breakfast. And lunch. And dinner. Mess after mess as our son, Conor, was learning to self-feed with a spoon. Every meal, more food ended up ON our son than IN him!
Surprisingly, we didn’t find a great solution to the problem. What we did find is that most companies have focused their attention on the spoon. They have twisted and contorted it in an effort to diminish the mess. Still, the mess remains. Where are the training wheels of the utensil world, we wondered? We looked, there weren’t any. Until now.
With the help of design professionals, we developed several prototypes and began the process of testing, tweaking and testing again. Eventually, we settled on the two designs that were most popular and effective. Our second baby, NumNum, was launched in spring of 2013. We were proud parents all over again.
We consider Conor a co-inventor of the NumNum. After all, he did all the dirty work of testing prototypes. We hope your child loves the NumNum as much as ours has. And we hope it makes mealtime a little easier on you. NumNum, indeed.
