A local woman is one of three finalists who may just be "The Next Big Thing."
Sharon Soloway of Tucson is the founder of Tady Tote, a play mat for children that has made Soloway a contender in a national product search competition.
The three Next Big Thing finalists will compete for a $12,500 prize at the Dallas Temp Show from June 20 through 23.
Soloway's Tady Tote converts from a bag to a large play cushion for infants through preschoolers. It comes with a teddy bear blanket and has pockets for bottles and snacks.
More information on the prototype can be found at www.tadytote.com.
