Incidents/Injuries

Graco has received 11 reports of finger injuries including six reports of fingertip amputation, four reports of partial-fingertip amputation and one finger laceration.

Remedy

Contact Graco immediately for a free repair kit. Repair kits will be available from the firm at the beginning of December 2014. While waiting for a repair kit, caregivers should exercise extreme care when unfolding the stroller to be certain that the hinges are firmly locked before placing a child in the stroller. Caregivers are advised to immediately remove the child from a stroller that begins to fold to keep their fingers from the side hinge area.

Sold at

Target, Toys R Us, Walmart and other retail stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Walmart.com and other online retailers from August 2000 through November 2014 for about $40-70 for the stroller and about $140-$170 for the Travel System.

Blog3GiveThanks

With Thanksgiving just one week away, we at Kid to Kid are feeling so grateful! Here’s a list of 8 things we’re especially thankful for right now:

1. Moms – because everybody needs at least one person who’ll love them and cheer for them no matter what.

2. Freedom – so we can be ourselves.

3. Can openers – because honestly, have you ever tried to open a can without one? Amiright?

4. Education – so we can learn, grow, and accomplish our dreams.

5. Chocolate – #NeedISayMore

6. Good friends – The kind that make your cheeks ache from smiling too much.

7. Beaches – especially warm beaches. In November.

8. Our shoppers and sellers! – because Kid to Kid couldn’t exist without YOU. We love to bring gently used kids’ things to families at low prices, and we REALLY love paying cash for kids’ clothes and toys. How could we do our two favorite things without our shoppers and our sellers?

Now we want to know, what are YOU grateful for? Tell us in the comments below.

Kid to Kid Almada, Portugal

Kid to Kid Almada, Portugal

Almada, Portugal—Nov. 17, 2014—The Kid to Kid franchise has selected the Kid to Kid store in Almada, Portugal as the winner of the Store of the Month for October. Kid to Kid Almada was selected from more than 100 stores based on outstanding performance representing the Kid to Kid brand. “The Almada Kid to Kid store is not only a model of the franchise in Portugal, but for the whole franchise system” reports franchise founder Shauna Sloan.

Almada franchise owner, Susana Pedroso, is a mother of two young children, and the owner/manager of two Kid to Kid stores located in a suburban area of Lisbon. Her second store in Seixal opened just a few months ago and is also experiencing terrific success. “Susana is an excellent manager and demonstrates an amazing work ethic as she leads her team to buy efficiently, keep the racks full, and turning product quickly,” said Ana Pinheiro, Kid to Kid’s Master Franchisor for Portugal. “Susana has done a great job cross-promoting between the Almada and Seixal stores, and developing common customers who buy and sell in both stores. This has resulted in success in both locations, and contributes to Kid to Kid being the second most recognized children’s brand in all of Portugal!”

Portugal stores are typically much smaller than the average 3,500 sq. ft store in the U.S. However, that hasn’t stopped the Almada and Seixal locations from being successful. When asked why both stores are doing so well, Pinheiro responded, “In my opinion there is no secret. They just follow the [franchise] system rules.”

Prior to Kid to Kid entering into the country of Portugal in 2003, the resale concept was completely new. There were virtually no thrift stores, yard sales, or classified ads, and buying “used” was not an option for the typical family. Since then, the franchise has experienced tremendous growth. There are now 21 stores throughout Portugal with only a few potential locations still available. “With Portugal virtually sold out, our next area of growth in Europe is into Spain,” comments Sloan.

Kid to Kid Pittsburgh

Kid to Kid Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH, PA—Local residents and mother and daughter team, Whitney and Mary Jo Hayes, are excited to announce the grand opening of their first Kid to Kid store, on Thursday, Dec. 4 at 4 p.m. Located at 7440 McKnight Rd. in Pittsburgh, the Kid to Kid franchise buys and sells new and gently used children’s apparel, toys, books, baby gear and maternity clothing.

For several weeks, the store has been open to the public to purchase customers’ gently used items. After the grand opening, customers will be able to shop for new and like-new children’s apparel and gear up to 70 percent less than retail prices. The Kid to Kid store will continue to pay for second hand items by offering customers cash on the spot or up to 20 percent more in store credit.

“Our hours are from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday,” Whitney explained. “We pride ourselves in knowing that we make it easy for families to bring their items to us, no appointment is necessary and we welcome anyone to sell anytime our store is open.”

In addition to carrying hundreds of recycled items, the Kid to Kid store will also offer many new products including toys, shoes, hair bows and apparel.

Whitney became interested in the resale concept after working two years at the Kid to Kid store in State College, PA. “I wanted to open a Kid to Kid store of my own because its concept goes along with everything I value,” said Whitney. “From preserving our earth by recycling to creating a place where people can find the perfect apparel to express themselves while saving money, Kid to Kid truly gives back to the community.”

For more information, visit the store website or follow Kid to Kid – Pittsburgh on Facebook for frequent updates, pictures and happenings in the store. For Kid to Kid franchise information, visit the Franchise Opportunity page.
