Help Make the PawdPet, A Smartphone and Tablet Holder/Case for Kids a Reality -- Support on Kickstarter Today!

Disclosure: In exchange for sharing about this Kickstarter campaign, I will be send a complimentary product for my time.  However, all views shared are mine and mine alone.


In addition to checking out Pinterest every day for unique crafts to do with the girls, or recipes to try, I have found another guilty pleasure -- Kickstarter.  Having started my blog back in 2009 as a mommy inventor/entrepreneur, and then sharing other mom and dad entrepreneur stories on my blog through my Spotlight Mom and Dad features, I am always looking for cool, new inventions or ideas that people are trying to get funded and bring to market.  This is why I love Kickstarter so much, and find myself losing track of time browsing through the different projects in need of funding.

Tonight, while getting in the mind set to write a few blog posts, I found myself checking out Kickstarter.  This is when I stumbled across the PawdPet, a smartphone and tablet holder for kids.  While I have seen similar holders on the market to house your iPad, phone or tablet, I have to say that these ones really won me over with their cuteness.  

I know two girls in my house who would love to use these when using our phones and tablets to play with their apps.  But, do you know why I love this product so much?  It was invented by a mom! Yeah, mom inventors/entrepreneurs.  :-)

How did the PawdPet plush tech holder idea come about?  Out of necessity -- like so many other inventions I have shared with you through my Spotlight Mom and Dad posts. :-)

This is the first-ever protective plush tech holder that can do it all! Meet PawdPet: I can HOLD, CARRY and PROTECT!

"PawdPet is the creation of a mom turned inventor/entrepreneur. After traveling with her small children, she noticed she was having to hold phones and tablets to keep her children occupied with videos and games. She hand-made her solution; a cuddly plush bunny that could hold, position and safely carry the children's iPod Touch. It instantly became her children's favorite toy, going everywhere with them. Other children and parents would ask where they could get one, and PawdPet was born!"

Like all the other projects listed on Kickstarter, Carrie Ushiba, the inventor of PawdPet needs your financial help.  She needs to raise $30,000 pledged by Wed, Feb 18 2015 11:28 AM EST in order to fund this project and make her plush tech holders a reality and available to the masses.  I hope you will consider joining me and others in showing your support by backing this project.  You can learn more about this project, as well as see the rewards you could score based on your pledge level, including your very own PawdPet for your phone or tablet by visiting

Please share this Kickstarter project with family and friends, who have kids, especially little ones, who use their tech devices.  I have personally experienced our iPad screen and cell phone screens cracking as a result of our girls dropping them by accident.  If only we had our devices protected with these cute plush tech holders.  This is one investment that will save you $$$ in having to replace or repair your broken devices, as well as piece of mind when you hand off your tablet or phone to your child.  

I can't wait to see Carrie receive funding and watch her business, PawdPet take off.  So, be sure you check out her website and follow her social media pages, along with me.
