Moms Make it Work in the U.S.A.


With the intense competition in the marketplace, many business owners have turned to manufacturing in other countries in order to save money. However, overseas manufacturing has led to recalls of products that were found unsafe, and has hurt the United States economy with the resulting job loss. Manufacturing products in America helps to rebuild our economy and provide jobs for American residents. Customers that buy American made products know that standards and codes are in place to help ensure products are safe. Elizabeth Cate, UnBOWlievable, Fat Rat Family and PunkinWrap are four companies that are committed to manufacturing their goods in America with great pride.

PunkinWrap is a Multi-Purpose Blanket, Cover-Up and Sunshade

Laura Gravett started PunkinWrap as an answer to a problem she was experiencing with her new baby. Kicked off blankets were ending up on the dirty road during walks or in the car, defeating the purpose of protecting baby from the chilly air. Laura also wanted the ease of having just one product to function as a blanket, nursing cover and sunshade. Laura tried some products that claimed to do just that. Despite product claims, she found that some items did not deliver what she needed, so she started researching and designing. Laura created her prototype, the PunkinWrap, about 9 months later.

The PunkinWrap is specifically designed to be used as a nursing cover, blanket and sunshade. Laura didn’t stop there, she was determined everything about her product would be safe and manufactured locally.

The PunkinWrap is designed with parents and baby in mind. Every seam is reinforced to ensure nothing comes unraveled. Strategically placed buttonholes allow for easy attachment to strollers, carriers, car seats, and more. PunkinLinks allow the wrap to be easily clipped to many different baby products. PunkinLinks are manufactured in the U.S.A., free of BPA, PVC, PET and Phthalates making them a safe choice for baby.

A detachable, adjustable strap converts the amply sized wrap to a nursing cover. The modest rigid neckline allows moms to keep an eye on their little one while feeding. The PunkinWrap also provides a clean place to lay baby down for changing or play. Toys attach easily using PunkinLinks to keep baby entertained.

The PunkinPouch is designed to let parents easily hold everything together on the go. The PunkinPouch is sized to hold all eight PunkinLinks, the nursing strap, and the PunkinWrap while the convenient ribbon ties keep everything secure.
