ava moreAva the elephant  is genius — plain and simple. The brainchild of Tiffany Krumins is a talking medicine dispenser, and she got some help from my favorite show, Shark Tank. Barbara Corcoran gave her a $50,000 investment, and Krumins went on to develop thermometer stickers. I think of the things I did to get my kids to take medicine and get their temps.

At age 30 and with a 2-year-old daughter, Krumins was a nanny to a special needs child when she came up with the idea. Now, she is a thyroid cancer survivor and was voted among the top 50 Mompreneurs of 2011 by Babble.com and has been featured on Entreprenuer.com along with Bank of America  and many other sites.

The product is now in thousands of stores throughout the country.

Pam Parker has written about real estate and home decor in the tri-state region for more than 20 years. She is the editor of Lake Erie LifeStyle, Her Times and House to Home at the Erie Times-News in Erie, Pa. She is the mom of three, stepmom to three and step-grandmom to one.
