My name is
Stephanie Dellamura, a stay-at-home mom and mother of three. I developed Gotta Go Mitts out of a need for
my three boys.
I dreaded the
whole public restroom experience, especially porta potties during
fairs, etc. Whenever we ventured into a
restaurant or store, it was assured one of them would have “to go”. I began using sandwich bags to cover their
hands. Without allowing flexibility for
the thumb, the bags did not allow them to grab the toilet seat easily
for balance or stay on their hands.
When away from
home, I also needed something to cover their hands while they ate those
sticky lollipops given to them by bank tellers, hairstylists, etc. Their hands would inevitably become wet and
sticky without a wipe to be found in the car or my purse.
extensive research and not finding products on the market that were
adequate, I decided to develop the Gotta Go Mitts.
Two out of three moms surveyed during my product
development research stated they felt the same way and would use the
mitts for their children. The small
discreet packaging fit easily in their purse and pockets unlike the
larger packages of the disposable toilet covers.
I would like to
thank my family and friends for their support and assistance including
all my little hand models in the development of the Gotta Go Mitts. My two boys use them all the time!
