Our Story

Whats the problem? How do I solve it...

As we navigate through the challenges of parenthood I understand the constant worry we all experience when it comes to keeping our little ones safe. I’m a mum of two young children and with each passing day, it seems like our kids have an endless supply of energy and an insatiable desire to explore every nook and cranny. This can be quite anxiety-inducing, especially as they often want to go in different directions! Now in a post lock down world we love to be outside as much as possible but everywhere feels busier than ever.

 

I’m sure you can relate when I say that social media has become a valuable resource for finding activities and inspiration for spending quality time with our children. However, it also tends to bring up stories about parents losing sight of their kids in crowded places. These stories made me feel anxious and started affecting our own family outings, preventing us from fully enjoying our time together.

I’ve discovered some helpful tips online that could prove invaluable if we ever found ourselves in a similar situation. While our 7-year-old might know our address and mobile numbers, it’s uncertain whether they could recall them accurately in a stressful moment. As for our toddler, it’s not even possible yet.

Last year, at a family festival, we were offered paper wristbands to write our emergency contact information on. I wondered how we could implement something similar for everyday situations like going to the supermarket or visiting the park. That’s when I started to think about how I could use near field communication in a tag. I’ve started to notice them becoming more commonplace.  It got me thinking about how we could use them in a practical way, especially considering we always have our phones with us.

While I noticed GPS devices on the market, they tend to track the wearer and can be quite expensive. I wanted a lightweight, strong and cost effective alternative and something my kids wouldn’t mind wearing.

Our tags contains our mobile numbers, making it simple for our children to simply show a tinytag to someone nearby if they need help. By having our contact information on them it means that we can be contacted and reunited quickly, minimising stress and upset for everyone involved. It’s a simple yet effective solution that brings us peace of mind during our outings and allows us to focus on creating lasting memories together.
