Before No Slippy Hair Clippy entered the marketplace, there was a gaping void in children’s hair accessories. In the early days, Annie Salyer was one of the first sales reps for No Slippy. Then she and husband Ramey became partners and in 2005, took over as majority owners. Today, Ramey handles financial and legal issues for the company while Annie works as lead designer and oversees much of the company’s marketing.
Parenting is often a balancing act between safety and fun. This quest for balance applies to the products parents purchase for their children. Products that are extremely popular and recognizable to children are not always the best for kids’ health or for the environment. It’s always a bonus when a company that cares produces fun, licensed products that kids really want. Zak Designs offers the best of both worlds. Their products make mealtimes convenient and safe, and bring a dash of style to the table.

This little silicone mat can hold big messes with its crumb-catching lip underneath two friendly google eyes.
