Hi, Kirsten, Kenneth and Leona here, the founders of myTOT. Thank you for taking the time to read a bit more about us.
The idea of myTOT originated when many of our close friends and family started to have children. Surrounded by endless nappies and cute gurgling faces, we simply couldn’t believe how many items parents needed for their little ones and, quite frankly, how much it cost them.
So, out of curiosity, we looked further into this issue. After numerous conversations, thousands of Google searches, and way too many cups of tea than I’d like to admit later, we discovered how little on average children’s items were being used, and more worryingly, how little items nowadays were being passed on to other families or charity shops.
Then it hit us. Not only were children’s items incredibly expensive for such a limited lifespan, but the proportion of these goods heading for the landfill each year highlighted a problem far bigger than a simple wallet-stretcher.
So, we set out with a mission to find a way we could help families retrieve some of their high initial costs from children’s goods, whilst helping to reduce waste and support families in need. This was when myTOT was born.
myTOT is a single vertical marketplace created to revolutionise how we shop for our children’s goods in one place in the palm of your hand.
myTOT is a safe community where parents can communicate with one another to buy and sell quality children’s goods. They can also find helpful articles filled with tips and tricks from fellow parents to help make life that extra bit better (and let’s be honest, easier) for you and your little ones.
