When Pinterest and eBay had a baby, they sold the clothes it outgrew on Kidizen.
For this interview I invited the entire team that created the iOS app Kidizen to share their story, describe how it came about, what the app does, and demonstrate how it works. I pursued this interview after seeing their fearless leader Dug Nichols on stage accepting a large novelty check for winning “Best Mobile App” at MobCon, a twin-cities mobile tech conference. As Nichols gave his demonstration of the Kidizen app I knew every parent in the room was realizing how useful this app could be for all of us.
It is a new marketplace for buying and selling pre-loved kid stuff. It’s currently an iOS app that is a mashup between Pinterest, eBay, and Craigslist. Buy clothing, toys, and accessories for your kids. Create personalized profiles for each of your children complete with clothing sizes and preferences.
