Kidizen is a place for parents (grandparents and others too!) to buy and sell kidstuff. It’s for the things that ought to be loved by many and deserve a long life. And it’s for folks who recognize the value, and downright awesomeness, of pre-loved things.
As parents ourselves, we’ve experienced the accumulation of stuff that comes with raising kids. It seems like we’re always hunting for something our kids need when we already have more stuff than we can manage. It's the non-stop cycle.
We see an opportunity to change this cycle, make it meaningful and, dare we say, even fun. Once you dive into the world of pre-loved, it’s hard to go back. Yes, it’s smart and thrifty. But it’s more than that.
It's increasingly difficult to spend less, but we still want the best for our kids. We want things for our children that express their unique style and spark their imaginations. A community of like-minded parents seems a logical place to look. And there's a certain comfort in knowing another family will love and appreciate our things just as much as we did.
