ToddlerTrunk: A Market Place for Parents

February 24, 2013

Edmonton, Review

One of the best things about being a blogger is you constantly meet new people. Through social media and blog updates, I interact with a community of people on a daily basis. I laugh, learn new things, or wonder if I’ll ever be able to replicate that craft for my toddler.

Through Twitter, I came across the Canadian online market place, ToddlerTrunk (http://canada.toddlertrunk.com/). After checking out the site and talking back and forth with one of their founders, I decided ToddlerTrunk is a site I’d like to highlight for my readers.

toddlertrunk_logoLike eBay and Kijiji before them, ToddlerTrunk is an online market place, only this time, it is solely geared towards parents: everyone on the site is looking to buy or sell children’s items. As your children outgrow toys, clothes, or accessories, you can post them (either for sale or for free) for others to purchase. You de-clutter your home and recycle gently used items, while other children get the joy of using the item and another family saves some money. A win-win all around.

Since the site is targeted to parents, items are classified with this market in mind. Categories include bundle of items, clothing, bath & meal time, nursery & décor, play & learn, and on the go & gear. It further subdivides into 7 of Canada’s major cities (Edmonton being one of them), age and sex. You can buy or sell new, gently used or handmade items.

The secondary goal of the site is to build an online community. Users can sign in with Twitter or Facebook accounts or can interact on the blog page.

My only comment is that I would like to see a search feature added. While the categories are fairly intuitive it would be nice to just type in “bugaboo” if that is what I am looking for, rather than having to drill down through the categories.

Check it out!

    Maybe a few of your site’s readers will want to jump on this offer. I don’t know how long it will be available. I just put in my order for a new baby sling that regularly costs $39.99 and I paid only $11.90. The only thing you are paying for is the “shipping and handling.” Anywho, the website looks like it carries “designer”-type slings so this is a decent deal. There is also “size insurance” which goes for something like 5 bucks but it can be removed from the order. Visit this store site: http://bit.ly/16LH7Eh and then click “Shop Now” and then choose the one you want. Be sure you pick out your size and any other options! When you are taken to the page where you put in your information, enter ENBABY in the discount code box and the total will be reduced to +$0 plus S&H. Enjoy!
