This is the story of a young innovator, Jared Pillai who pushed through Big Break legacy a South African TV Reality Show, got funding for a prototype from the DTI, and recognition from the Minister of Science and Technology before entering Dragons Den and getting three Dragons to back him.
All this got them to the point where they are now ready to mass produce.
The Todpod is your child's personal play station that is easy to take with anywhere, anytime and can be used for a variety of multifunctional purposes such as playing, eating, writing, sitting and drawing. Parents can now feel confident knowing their child is happy and occupied constructively with their TodPod. Clearly, the Todpod gives the child a sense of ownership and independence while stimulating a baby or toddler's early development and lifestyle, despite the fact that it is making parents lives much simpler and easier.
Comments by (Occupational Therapist) Samantha Bester ~ Strong points of the design in relation to children: An excellently thought through product and there is something very positive about children of this age taking ownership of their own space through a tool like this. The fact that they can carry it themselves aids in this sense of ownership and independence. The extra items (chalkboard and building blocks, etc.,) are excellent in that both activities encourage fine motor development, which is an area that is lacking in children's development these days.
There are easy activity ideas that will be added into a booklet and a whole load of educational toys, games and puzzles to follow up with these products that would encourage other skills such as midline crossing, spatial awareness, and coping skills.

"When you have children, you want to give them the best possible start in life. During their early years in life, they learn and grow so much. As a parent, you will want to give them everything that you can. You want to make sure that the interactions and experiences they have are for their benefit. It can be hard to get everything right as a parent. But some things are easier than others to get right. Here is an absolutely amazing product that you can give your children the best start in their early years. Your child will work smarter, have more fun and make you absolutely happier than ever before." Pillai added.
