We were honored to film with the Dr. Oz show, sharing the story of how Ava the Elephant® came to be. We also shared the BIG news that Ava the Elephant® will soon be available for hospital use! Tune in on November 18th to see our fun segment! When I walked out and saw the massive screen with our little Ava fans on it I was brought to tears. What a journey!
From the start of my business, I dreamed of labeling my product: "Made in the USA." For five years I worked hard to make that happen, but faced challenges due to pricing and quantity issues. For example, if production was not in the millions, either no factory was willing to work with me OR I just could not reach retail pricing that would satisfy my customers. These barriers crumbled when I was blessed with finding a new factory - one that is located in Georgia and not too far from the corporate office. This gives me a chance to closely monitor what my product is made of and how it is being made every step of the way. I greatly appreciate everyone supporting my endeavor to manufacture in the United States of America! I will be posting updates here of our progress at the factory, stay tuned!
