The Open Search - held twice a year in June and December - gives Insiders the opportunity to submit ideas from any product category.
It works just like our sponsor-specific Live Product Searches, except we’ll work with any consumer goods retailer or manufacturer in any mass-appeal category.Learn more about becoming an Insider

Do you have a great idea for the next big kids’ product or toy?
Everyday Edisons is looking for 10 great ideas to feature and develop on its next season.
For this casting call, Everyday Edisons wants to consider your great ideas for the next hit kids’ product or toy as part of the lineup of inventions to be featured on Season 4.
Your idea for a new and innovative kids’ product or toy should be intended for children anywhere from birth – 12 years of age.
Keep in mind that top ideas will:
• Appeal to a broad or mass market
• Be considered consumer products
• Have high marketing and sales volume potential
All you need is a well-communicated idea for a new kids’ product or toy. We consider concepts of all levels, whether it’s just an idea, a prototype, a finished product or a patented idea. All are welcome!
Simply complete the online submission process and submit any supporting electronic files you may have (digital photos, sketches, etc.). While not required, we highly recommend you to submit video of yourself demonstrating a prototype and explaining the features and benefits of your submission.
Everyday Edisons bases its selection of the featured inventions on three main criteria:
1) Fit – Does Everyday Edisons have the skill sets and category knowledge to develop the product within a year?
2) Marketability – Is there a need or demand for the product?
3) Patentability – Is it unique, and could the intellectual property be protected?
Each idea costs just $25 ($20 for Edison Insider members) to submit. Edison Insider members may opt in their existing ideas submitted to previous Edison Nation Live Product Searches for Season 4 consideration as long as you maintain Insider membership. Edison Insiders can also use their accumulated points toward Everyday Edisons casting call submissions. Click here for more details on rules to submitting to Everyday Edisons Season 4 casting calls.
