Buggie Huggie

T

he Buggie Huggie™, a new shopping cart tray, launched its Kickstarter campaign on September 1 to bring hope and peace back to moms after months of COVID-19 uncertainty. The mission of Buggie Huggie is to empower moms everywhere with tools that help reduce stress, build confidence, and eliminate mom guilt – a mission that is more important than ever as families scramble to figure out schooling options. Buggie Huggie™ is a Dallas-based company built around the one-of-a-kind shopping cart tray that has a “hugging” safety layer to keep toddlers from standing up and reaching for items while in the shopping cart. Over 24,000 kids each year end up in the emergency room from shopping cart falls in the US alone, and 75% of those involve a head injury. The Buggie Huggie™ tray helps with securing & entertaining kids by making the perfect place for snacks, books, toys, and even a phone holder accessory clip for kids’ favorite shows or apps. “I never thought of myself as an inventor and entrepreneur,” says Nichole Clark, Founder of Buggie Huggie™ and homeschool mom of 3 active adventurers under the age of 7. “But after my son, Jonah fell out of the shopping cart and hit his head, I was desperate for a solution to ease my growing anxiety and embarrassment about taking my kids shopping with me. Now, through the Buggie Huggie™, I am committed to promoting the peace and hope every

mom deserves, especially through the toddler years. I want every mom out there to know you are not alone in your struggle, and together, we will make it through this season!” Support the Buggie Huggie™ mission by visiting their Kickstarter Campaign at buggiehuggie.com/shop
