-- Halifax, NS -- ToddlerTrunk.com, a free online marketplace and community for parents, launched in Halifax on February 25th. Halifax is the first ToddlerTrunk community in Atlantic Canada.
Parents in Halifax and the surrounding communities have a new way to buy and sell children’s goods. Items on ToddlerTrunk.com include new and gently used clothes, toys, furniture, and strollers. Items are organized by type, gender, and age, making it easy for parents to find the stuff they need.
In addition to buying and selling items, users give items away for free in exchange for Rubies. A Ruby has a value of $10.00. When users join the site, they receive five free Rubies that they can trade for children’s items. Users also receive Rubies for posting items and logging into the site.
Unlike other resale sites, ToddlerTrunk.com tries to put a face on everyone’s profile to create a community of parents in local neighbourhoods. Users have the option of signing into the site with their Facebook or Twitter accounts, so users have a better chance of knowing if the seller or the buyer is a friend, a neighbour, or an acquaintance. ToddlerTrunk.com also provides online community space for parents.
“Meeting other moms and dads can be challenging when you’re a busy parent,” said Jennifer Scace, CEO and Nova Scotia native. “We make it easy for moms and dads to connect with other local parents, while decluttering their homes of unneeded children’s items. We also help parents save money on great stuff for their little ones.”
ToddlerTrunk.com is available in Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, and Halifax. It will be launching in many smaller cities in March.
