That business prospered and grew for 20 years. This business also was sold, leaving Gick to venture out on his own and start up a new company specializing in gift products. “Our headquarters was in the Irvine Spectrum. We initially focused on proprietary craft products and later became a distributor of products for other companies.
After a year of building and testing numerous prototypes, and an initial investment of $500,000. Gick hooked up with a supplier overseas, and in July 2003, he had his first Babble Balls. “The dogs go nuts for the Babble Balls because they think there is an animal inside,” he said. “This isn’t just a regular plush toy, but something more high-tech. Most pets go into a frenzy with them the moment they hear them talk. One consumer said her ferret adopted the little kitty ball and carried it around like a baby. Another lady sent me a picture of her hedgehog playing with one.”
“I’m constantly pitching the balls to stores, and I get new customers and reorders every day, but it took me over a year to really get rolling.” I just had a good feeling about the concept, and I have always enjoyed pets. We have patents pending for more new and unique products, so the future looks very bright. I never thought it would take off as well as it did, and it’s an exciting time.”
James Gick’s world is filled with mindless babble, and he likes it that way. Gick, is not only the president of Pet Qwerks Inc., but he is also the inventor of the Babble Ball, an interactive toy that rivets the attention of pets. How? It talks and makes noises when touched, thanks to technology that is so sensitive that it can be triggered by a pet breathing on it or just by the vibration of a pet walking nearby.
