Have you ever thought “Oh, I wish I had …. It would make life so much better.”? Those were Davis’s thoughts as a three-year-old playing with his pool noodles. They were fun to play with individually, but he could only imagine how much fun they would be if they could connect together. He turned his wishing into action; and he, along with his dad’s help, went to work inventing the interlocking noodle. After shaving down and reconfiguring some extra noodles, they found their idea worked. While Davis was excited about their invention, he wanted to go one step further. “I wanted others to be able to enjoy my invention too,” says Davis. Together, he and his dad designed the interlocking noodle on paper and then began the process of securing a patent for the invention. Davis remembers there was paperwork to send away, an interview in a big office, and a place where he needed to sign his name. The patent was granted; and now over 500 stores (including BiLo and Publix) carry interlocking noodles, originally known as “Davis Noodles.” “I like them,” says Davis, “but I wanted to make them so other children can have more fun than with just regular noodles.”
