What does Hoohobbers mean?

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is what is the world does the word Hoohobbers mean? Well... wonder no more... here's the story...

When Hoohobbers first created their first product, the classic junior director chair, the founders knew they had something great on their hands. A company was born dedicated to innovation, modern design, functionality... the biggest problem they faced was coming up with a name that appropriately encapsulated this new vision.

Bill, the founder, dreamed of a name that was whimsical, unique, fun, sounded like a kids word but had never been heard before. Hoohobbers was his word for something when he didn't have a word for it. Similar to "whatchamacallit" or "thingamabob." With that Hoohobbers came and stayed. Really, a fancy word for "that really great product for my child that I simply can't live without."
