Being an entrepreneur wasn’t always the plan for Melissa. She developed her signature product, the Munch Mitt, as a necessary solution to her son’s pain and discomfort while teething. Preferring to chew on his hands instead of traditional teethers, he developed eczema, but the Munch Mitt provided him a safe and comfortable alternative. Melissa’s solution to a common problem was wildly popular with parents across North America. As the founder of Malarky Kids, she’s branched out to develop other functional products for young children. Her line can be found online and in retails stores across North America including Nordstrom and Target.
