Buggy Bubble® is Canadian

March 25, 2017

 

It all started in Toronto, Canada around 2005.  I noticed my infant son staring at the sun from his stroller.  It triggered something in me, something crazy, that lead to an idea that took hold feverishly in action.  

 

A spark of inspiration is normally what kicks off an invention, and certainly in this case necessity played a role.  Inspiration leads somehow to determination to manifest the idea, to test one's knowledge and push the boundaries.  Invention is a fulfilling and visceral undertaking.  

 

I operated Buggy Bubble® solely in Canada once its patents were issued and sold the brand across the country for about 5 years, whilst I licensed the USA market to Infantino® until its director, Mark Silberstein, left the company for Israel with his beautiful family.  

 

In the meantime, a UK company by the name of Claire de Lune®, and run by a dear man by the name of John Rodgers had us build a variant with a plastic cover for rain, and a modified mesh shade for the rare occasions of a sunny day in England.  It sold in Tesco® and Argos® for a number of years. 

 

To make a long story short, Brica®, located in Charlotte, North Carolina fell in love with the product, rebranded it the Comfort Canopy© and very expertly got it into Walmart®, Target®, Babies R Us®, Amazon® and numerous other online and brick and mortar outlets across the United States.  Eventually they also took over the Canadian Market where the Comfort Canopy can be found in Sears® and Canadian Tire® as well. The market continues to expand.  

 

Now Brica® is owned by Munckin®.
