Here comes the tribe.
To help flatten the curve, we're encouraging our community to come together and help each other. We're using our platform to help families who need help find the people in their community who are willing to help.

The current recommendation is to have 1 person do errands for 4-5 families to further promote physical distancing, so we're hoping that by connecting the helpers with those in need. During these uncertain times, we all have to adapt to our new normal. While we started Urban Tykes to help parents stress less in all things family travel, we've seen and heard what our community now needs.

Urban Tykes FounderUrban Tykes was born out of a mom’s painful experience when traveling with her baby. Our founder Billy loves traveling with her daughter because of the experiences and memories they share, but she loathes having to sacrifice leaving behind so much baby gear at the expense of traveling light.

On top of that, she always had anxiety over budgeting each trip. And it didn’t make sense to her that when they do decide to bring the bulky baby gear, they awkwardly lug them through airports but don’t really use them until they get to their destination.

Meanwhile, she also realized (especially now with a new baby in the picture) that their home was accumulating quite the inventory of under-utilized baby gear. She felt so wasteful seeing these barely-used equipment gathering dust.

So she started Urban Tykes to solve the family travel conundrum–through our platform, parents who want to earn extra money to fund their next trip can do so by renting out their baby gear to families visiting their city, and young families can now travel lighter and enjoy their vacations better when they rent the baby gear they need from a local parent.

Urban Tykes aims to build a tribe of parents helping parents stress less and smile more, one trip at a time!
