MUNCHIE MUG CANADA
Eva (8 months), Vancouver, British Columbia
As a new mother, finding effective products that are worth their value is never an easy feat. With a busy monster like our daughter, Eva, cleaning up messes and finding spilled snacks were a part of our daily routine. It never ceases to amaze me how messy one little person can be.
We tried countless snack containers that claimed to be spill-proof, but none of them stood a chance against our little monster. With enough shaking and throwing, we'd still be on our hands and knees, desperately cleaning up spilled snacks she left behind in restaurants, cars, planes and pretty much anywhere she went. Then one day, my cousins from California introduced me to the Munchie Mug! It was the first cup that Eva didn't scratch her hands on, and genuinely couldn't spill!!
I started noticing that every single time I was out, someone would see how easy it was for Eva to access her snacks independently and without fail, I would always be asked where I had bought it from. Up until recently the Munchie Mug was only available for purchase in the USA.
My personal love for this product, and my firm belief that every single parent and child will greatly benefit from using it (along with popular demand), fuelled the dream that is Munchie Mug Canada. Working with the amazing family-minded inventors & manufacturers of the Munchie Mug, this venture has allowed us to open up the Canadian Market and bring the Munchie Mug to all of you!
I stand behind their company, their product and their mission, and I guarantee you will LOVE their product, too!!
Shop LOCAL - we’re so grateful to all of our customers and supporters and wanted to let you know that Munchie Mug truly is a small, family run business!
Just a word on what it means to be “local”. I’ve had a lot of people ask me if I’m really a local business because the Mugs are manufactured in California. I can see where they’re coming from, but did you know that many local shops and businesses outsource their supplies from other countries?
But I AM a local mama, (Steveston born and raised, now living in South Surrey), I run Munchie Mug Canada completely on my own (with Hubby’s support), between my regular day-job, naps, preschool drop-offs and after my kiddos go to sleep. I pick up all the mug components myself over the border, and I PERSONALLY assemble each Mug myself for every single order you receive or see in store. After assembling every Mug, I then package, barcode, invoice and process every order, stuff every box with thank-you cards, print off all the shipping labels, and then drag my kids to the Post Office to send your orders out (sometimes I make several trips in one day to make sure they get to you on time!).
Between packing orders, I’m hustling on emails and phone calls to recruit retailers that many customers have asked me to contact, and this doesn’t even include social media marketing, collaborations and advertising!
Ooh if you only knew what the small shop community does to market their products and try to ensure their posts are seen. Believe me when I say, we really do do a happy dance when you place an order from our stores and support the crazy moms sitting behind each of these accounts. The amount of time, thought, stress and love - YES LOVE! - that goes into our businesses is unheard of. But it’s because we love our products and love the idea of getting to spend more time home with the ones we love that drives us to keep at it.
So when you ask me if I’m really a local small shop, I have no qualms saying, YES! There’s a local family from YOUR community behind Munchie Mug Canada and when you buy from us, you’re supporting US!
So, YES, we ARE local, and we LOVE being a small shop and LOVE being a part of this community. So THANK YOU for supporting us!
MUNCHIE MUG USA
The Amormino children in 1984.
The idea for Munchie Mug was born out of yet another spill from a "spill proof" cup. We were tired of wasting our money on low quality products that didn't do what they promised so we decided to do something about it.
We set out to create a better spill proof snack cup for children, one that actually works, by combining innovative design with the highest quality American-made materials.
With 4 children and 10 grandchildren, inventor and founder Phil Amormino had an ideal setting to test out various prototypes and get feedback from real parents.
We place the safety of children above all else so, keeping that in mind, we took years to perfect both the materials and design of our cup. We pride ourselves on using safe materials that are third party tested and we are committed to always making our product in the USA. Our product is manufactured and assembled in Sonoma, CA at Munchie Mug headquarters.
We hope our product can help make life a little less messy, and a little less stressy, for anyone with children in their lives.
