goBaby, the Airbnb for Baby-Gear-on-the-Go, is a peer-to-peer rental marketplace and on-demand app that helps families reduce the stress of traveling by leaving their cumbersome strollers, baby seats, and Pack ’n Plays at home.
How? By renting from goBaby’s trusted community of local parents!
goBaby was founded by a team of parents passionate about changing the way families travel.
Natalie Kaminski, a NYC-based mother of two girls, came up with the idea after some of the best trips of her life — with her young children — were made stressful by trying to pack, carry, and unload cumbersome baby gear.
Natalie spent over 15 years developing web and mobile applications for clients across a wide range of industries, and she is excited about putting her experience and skills to solving a problem she feels passionate about.
Ksenia Bolobine, a mother of a boy and a girl, an avid traveler who visited 46 countries (taking her firstborn on a trip to Costa Rica at 4 months old), excitedly joined the startup because she understands the problem first-hand.
Ksenia is an experienced business developer and strategist who built her career in management consulting with one of the world's leading firms.
Igor Alexandrov is a recent father who can't wait to show the world to his newborn daughter. Igor is an experienced technologist with a passion for solving real life problems using elegant technological solutions.
goBaby is the only platform that truly changes the way families travel.
More so, hotels tap into goBaby inventory to improve customer experience. VRBO, Airbnb, and Homeaway hosts leverage goBaby to differentiate themselves and make their houses family-friendly.
Here’s what some other parents are saying about using the marketplace to rent baby equipment:
When we had our first kid three-years ago we bought a brand new car seat, several strollers, a high chair, a bouncy seat, and a Pack ’n Play. That’s just the start of the list, you name it, we probably bought it and often the best-in-class! We’re still planning to have another child, but currently a lot of this well regarded equipment is sitting around unused. goBaby has enabled us to easily make some extra income on the side with it by providing parents like us a service they really need and an overall better vacation experience.
OMG — this is an awesome idea! I’ve 2 small kiddos and if I can have all the necessary stuff delivered to my door while visiting relatives — you got me right away!
We live in Chicago and have rented out our basement on Airbnb. Since having a baby I've often wondered about an Airbnb for strollers… Well, you have done it! I love my Bugaboo stroller but don't want to travel with it and my little travel stroller just doesn't hold up as well for walking around cities. If I could wear my baby through the airport and have gear waiting for me at my destination… AMAZING!
