Julie Pickens and Mindee Doney developed the first ever saline nose wipe called Boogie Wipes® as a solution for their kids’ sore, red, runny noses. Using the idea, their business backgrounds, and mompreneurial spirit, they formed Little Busy Bodies, Inc. in May 2007. After an intensive research and development process, hiring a chemist, surveying consumers and interviewing manufacturers, Julie and Mindee sold their first package of Boogie Wipes in December 2007. Sales went on to reach $1 million in the company’s first year of business and by 2009; Little Busy Bodies tripled its revenue to $3.4 million.

I received a 30 count Fresh Scent Boogie Wipes and sample packs of the Grape and Menthol in exchange for my honest review.
These Boogie Wipes could not have come at a better time. The weather is cooling down here and my 7 year old is back to school. Runny noses and coughs have got both my boys right now. They run and hide when they see me grabbing tissues out of the box. Not with Boogie Wipes though! My 4 year old comes to me now asking to wipe his nose lol. He especially likes the Grape scented ones that I had to sample. I put a Grape and a Menthol scented one in my 7 year olds pocket yesterday morning and this morning and he told me when he got home that he liked them and needed more. The Boogie Wipes are so soft compared to even the more expensive tissues. No more running away, no more tears and no more red puffy noses here! Boogie Wipes will be our saving grace here for winter. A huge 5/5 from me and my boys!
