Valrico dad Chris Hartsfield invented a useful and fun novelty gift idea when he became a dad for the third time. The Osprey Observer was the first to do a feature story when the concept was just rolling out over 5 years ago when sales were just 25 Daddy Diaper Changing Toolboxes. The product sales has skyrocketed to over 3,000 units sold around the world with favorite stops in Australia and the U.K.
His unique idea, the Daddy Diaper Changing Toolbox, was created and patented in 2008, and has appeared on national television such as the TODAY Show and The Doctor’s, been given as celebrity gifts and has made a splash in parenting magazines, blogs and on the radio. And now, for the first time, those buying gifts for the parents or parents-to-be can see the toolbox in action, along with other perfect gifts for dad, at the new DaddyScrubs kiosk at Westfield Brandon.
After creating his now award-winning toolbox and a successful website, Daddy Diaper Changing Toolbox and GiftsForDadToBe.com was purchased by DaddyScrubs to become the perfect company to cater to gifts for dad to be.
Now offering the toolbox of course, in addition to “I’m The Daddy” scrubs, plus T-shirts, gifts and mugs that help celebrate the new family addition.
The kiosk will host its Grand Opening at the mall, right near the Apple Store and Gymboree from Friday, May 17, through June 16 and will be hosting contests, a ribbon cutting with the Brandon Chamber and other events to celebrate dads!
“We are so excited to be bringing the new kiosk concept to Brandon,” explained Hartsfield, National Sales Director for Daddy Scrubs. “Now customers can actually see the products and see how perfectly these fit into gift-giving for dads and dads-to-be.”
With the original Daddy Diaper Changing Toolbox, dad’s receive everything they will need for the very first diaper change including: A few patented items including the Poop Poncho, Bio-hazard mask, Tongs, Gloves and Goggles. Think of it as a diaper duty survival kit.
Daddy Diaper Changing Toolbox, has been awarded the PTPA Media Inc.’s Seal of Approval for excellence in family products.
