Smart Pajamas Could Be Coming To A Local Store
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The world's first- and only- interactive pajamas for young kids.
We first told you about this story in the spring.
An Idaho man created pj's that tell a bedtime story.
After our story ran, the pj's made national headlines.
These pajamas could end up on Wal-Mart shelves soon.
Juan Murdoch the inventor behind smart pj's is a finalist in the company's 'get on the shelf' competition.
"The pajamas that I've created are called smart pj's and each pair of pajamas is covered in 47 different dot patterns that can be scanned with your choice of smart device to play bedtime stories or information on animals depending on what app you use” said Founder Juan Murdoch, Smart PJ’s.
This is the second year for the contest. The company is giving entrepreneurs a chance to get noticed and sell their products on walmart.com and, potentially in select stores.
"I saw that Wal-Mart was having a contest for inventors to submit your product and Wal-Mart chose 20-contestants as finalist to go down to walmart.com headquarters and actually try to get a chance to get the product on the shelf,” said Murdoch.
Murdoch is part of the 20-contestants selected by the company.
He pitched the pj's to Wal-Mart buyers now; all he needs is your help.
"The American public gets to go out and vote and that's when the fun comes, the cool thing is the American people decide who the winner of the competition will be,” said Murdoch.
An idea Murdoch never thought would become so big, until now.
If you would like to see these pajamas in Wal-Mart stores.
Beginning next tuesday for only three days, you can vote for the smart pj's online at, getontheshelf.walmart.com/
