A Giggliciousy Autumn

Isn’t life grand?  Ryan and I have wiled away the autumn days, nestled in our wool scarves, trying in vein to keep away the chill.  We happily sip hot tea as we sit in our adirondack chairs, all the while, observing with intense joy, the golden leaves falling one by one into our perfectly manicured yard.  So sorry, but the calmness and stillness of our days have prevented us from even letting you know what we are up to.


Of course, it’s all mostly malarky, except this:

  • I am wearing a scarf.  I always do.
  • We have watched leaves falling when we happen to look out our windows.
  • I am drinking lots of hot tea.

  • Beautiful autumn days aren’t to blame for our belated update, but Gigglicious, soccer, school and raising kids IS.

There hasn’t been one whit of tranquility happening at this address in years–and that’s just how we like it.  We are, thankfully, very busy and the to-do list is very long.

And . . . we need to get back to it, so here is an abbreviated Gigglicious update:

  • Reactorz is available online and is now in 300 SuperTarget stores.  We have a coveted spot on an end-cap in the sports balls area, so go check them out.   Swimways has completely supported this item and is moving at full steam to ensure that the Reactorz line has a bright future.
  • We are in development on an item that should be on store shelves this spring/early summer.  It generally takes a year and a half to get an item on store shelves.  This item will go through manufacturing and shipping in 4 months and be on shelves in around 8 months.  Can’t wait to tell you all about it soon.
  • Ryan has loved his new office all summer.  I like waving to him out the window and taking the ten steps to tell him it’s lunchtime.

We have been blessed with amazing opportunities this year.  We have taken on more product development jobs than ever and are fortunate that 2016 will mark the most licenses we have sold in one year.  We are scrapping to make smart, worthwhile product for mass market consumers and it’s a battle everyday.  We are grateful to experience every peak and valley, sometimes even in the same day, with the adventure known as Gigglicious.

Happy fall!

Reactorz Launch and just a spot of Summer Madness 2016

Summer, summer, summertime

Time to sit back and unwind.

School is out and it’s a sort of a buzz

but back then I didn’t really know what it was

But now I see what happened is it’s

The way that people respond to summer madness…

There’s an air of love and of happiness 

And this is the Fresh Prince’s new definition of summer madness.

You sang a little bit of that in your head, didn’t you?  How could you resist? DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’s 1991’s summer hit, Summertime is a requirement for any summer playlist cause it’s so dang catchy.

Ahhh, summer.  The easy routine of this season has set in: we are overdoing it on episodes of Dr. Who and the Walking Dead, alarms have been boycotted, and impromptu neighborhood gatherings are happening nearly every other day to watch the UEFA Euro Soccer.  (Go Wales!)

Studio G is officially completed and is the permanent address for Ryan’s new digs now.  He’s excited about his new office.  He’s already designing and creating amazeballs ideas out there.

In more Giggliciousy news, we are pleased to officially announce the release of the REACTORZ line of light up sports balls in partnership with Coop Sports.  We have spent well over a year working on this line.  Check them out here: Coop Sports Reactorz

Reactorz at Academy Sports

For now, they are available at Academy Sports and ToysRUs.  Here are the handy links for you to check them out online: Academy Sports and ToysRUs.  (Oh, and while you’re looking at them, you might even want to go ahead and buy one.  Tell your friends about them too.)  We hear that sales are growing and we are  gaining traction at these stores.  We are expecting them to be stocked at Amazon soon and other stores are getting on board.  They feel amazing and are absolutely incredible at night.

As always, thanks to our best cheerleaders for their unending support and encouragement for all our creative endeavors.  A kind word, a vote of support, or even a “Wow, that’s cool” always goes a  long way in motivating us to continue to do what we do.  Thank you from all of us.


Well, with all that said, I believe a summertime nap is overdue . . .
