Young Entrepreneur Series – Explorer Gloves

April 4, 2012

Nathaniel Tung was 10 years old when Explorer Gloves was invented. Nathan was a kid inventor in the Wild Planet Kid Inventor Challenge contest. He invented Explorer’s Gloves which consist of six tools; a compass, signal lights, a watch and other handy accessories. Gap Kids was so impressed with Nathan’s gloves that they created a partnership with Wild Planet for Nathan’s products and sold them attached to a light-weight jacket.

“I invented the Explorer’s Gloves because I enjoy playing with gadgets and wanted one easy way to carry them all,” explained Nathan.

Though Wild Planet manufactures several kid-invented toys, the Explorer’s Gloves are the first kid-created item the company is offering through an exclusive retail partnership and the first kid-invented product to be sold at GapKids stores. (An awesome achievement!)

Nathaniel was able to make a change in a large, well-known clothing company. Where can you leave your mark? Go to for some great business tips from Warren Buffet.
