For Don Edwards, it began with a need to move furniture on carpet with ease. In 1993, he designed a product called EZ Moves Furniture Slides. When placed under the edges of a couch or chair, it could move around a carpeted room with ease. What came next he never expected, reports Your Norwin.
Edwards created Fun Slides carpet skates after some of his employees were playing around at a trade show.
“They were acting goofy and sliding across the floor with them on their feet, or they would push with them underneath their hands and knees,” Edwards said.
After the trade show, Edwards went back to his workshop and attached foot straps to a pair of his furniture slides and created the skates.
He debuted the skates at New York City’s annual International Toy Fair, where he says his skates were a hit.
