As a mother of four, Andrea Misch knows all too well when little ones want to play outside in the winter, it can be an effort to get them ready. So, the artist and creator based in Whitehall came up with a convenient all-in-one snowsuit for kids called the SnowOtter StowSuit.

The multifaceted coat stows the attached mittens and snow pants so they’re easily accessible and won’t get lost. A zipper in the pants makes them easy to remove for washing and the mittens can be separated at the cuffs and stored in the sleeves. In addition, the pants extend up to 2 inches to accommodate growth and zip into the back of the coat with magnets and snaps to hold them in place.

Though this was not her first business venture, Misch was ready to try something new. “I love ‘Shark Tank’ and I like to invent things,” she says. “My kids struggled to get ready to go outside and it was such a pain. Now they get themselves ready with minimal help.”

An all-in-one snowsuit keeps mittens and snow pants easy to access and prevents them from getting lost.

While the snowsuit launched late last year in the middle of a pandemic, the timing might be in her favor. “People are staying home and doing a lot of outdoor activities,” says Misch who has a 9-year-old, two 7- year-olds, including one who was adopted from China, and a 1-year-old.

So far, she says the feedback has been positive. “People say it’s helped them get their kids ready. Even with our 1-year-old, it’s so easy to get her ready and keep her warm,” Misch says. “It comes with instructions, but we keep in constant contact with our customers and walk them through it if they have questions. There’s also a how-to video on our Facebook page.”
