Tell us a little about you . . .

Julie and I are parents to three children Alex 6, Brodie 4, and our newest bundle of joy Sophia. Julie would like to spend more time with the kids so we started to brainstorm ideas to make opportunities for Julie 2 B a stay at home Mom. We wanted a business that would be fun and give us great pride.

What is your business and where can we find it?

WHAT ABOUT DAD?

Today's Dad Wants to be More Involved

Not only is Today's Dad willing to help with late night feedings and diaper changes, he is willing to be a part of the celebration to welcome the arrival of your bundle of joy. Couples baby showers are becoming increasingly popular. Chris Hartsfield went to his first couples baby shower in October of 2007. At the shower, he was blown away by all the gifts given for the baby and for Mom but nothing for Dad besides his favorite beer in the fridge. Although Chris was happy to be a part of the shower, he wished that there had been something more to acknowledge and celebrate fatherhood. This inspired Chris to design the Daddy Diaper Changing Toolbox the box that changed it all. Chris wanted to provide Dads with a chuckle as well as arm them with everything they would need for their very first diaper change, and he did this with practicality in mind. All of the comic extras in the toolbox are actually useable, for example a functional toolbox and tongs for the grill. Chris put his ideas into action and collaborated with Julie Etzkorn to start Fun Stuff 4 Babies.

Baby boutiques welcomed The Daddy Diaper Changing Toolbox with open arms and a good belly laugh. Annette Alexander of Smarty Pants Boutique in South Tampa said, The Daddy Diaper Changing Toolbox is fun way to include dad in all of the excitement that comes with preparing for a new baby. Bernadette Maccarone of Petite Elite in Brandon said, This product is long over do. There isn't much out there for Dad. It really does take 2 to raise a child.

Fun Stuff 4 Babies is a family owned business, and the entire family was involved in developing the Daddy Diaper Changing Tool box from input from their parents to the assistance of their 6 and 4 year old in assembling the initial product. Chris and Julie couldn't have done it without the support from their family and have hopes that it is a business that will grow with them.

Is it mom-owned, invented, created . . .?

Yes it is Mom-owned, co-invented, co-created

A little about your entrepreneur journey so far?

We had some excitement last week, a Blog owner that did a write up on the Daddy Diaper Changing Toolbox personally gave a Toolbox to Ellen's staff when she went to the the Ellen show. We haven't heard anything but would love to be on the show around Father's Day this year. We love that we can bring a laugh to so many people and hear about their funny Poop encounters.

Where else can people find you?

We have had several blog sites do stories or features which can be found on a tab called Favorite Blog Sites within www.funstuff4babies.com and www.GiftsForDadToBe.com

Anything else you’d like to share?

We would love to be on the Ellen show and if your readers really like the Daddy Diaper Changing Toolbox let Ellen know at http://ellen.warnerbros.com/show/respond/?PlugID=10

This would go to my grandson. He will be a first time father. I love the tongs idea.

MaggieM said...

I have been trying to win the Daddy Diaper Changing Tool Box for my niece's husband. They just had their first child on January 27th, a boy. The daddy, Matt, has been kind of nervous about handling the baby or changing diapers, so I think the Tool Box with the gas mask and tongs would be a riot for him and would definitely break the ice. I know he's a loving father; he's been a wonderful husband, so I would love to gift him with the Daddy Diaper Changing Tool box :)

My daughter0in-laws sister is having a baby this summer and I would give the tool box to her husband, a first time father, who is kind of scared about becoming a "Daddy" I think he could really use this and the funny side of it will lighten things up for him *S*
