My "Buddy" Towel

Abstract

Hi! I'm Angie Myers. I'm 34. I'm married to my high school sweetheart and we have 6 kids!!

My innovative patent pending idea----

With 6 kids laundry is never ending. My daughter always insisted on using not 1, not 2, but 3 towels every time she got out of the bath! All that extra laundry literally piles up fast at the Myers house since we are a #CrewOF8!

So because of my daughter insisting on using 3 towels and my frustration of washing so many towels---- I created and have prototypes of

"My Buddy Towel"

A high quality fully absorbent full body towel my kids love to dry off wholeness relaxing!

My manufacturer is requiring a minimum order of 300 in 2 colors. I've decided to do Green Frog and Pink Flamingo designs. They will come in limited sizes. You will beable to choose your size.
