Parents with young children and soon-to-be parents who love being active outdoors may no longer fear the end of their adventures, thanks to the launch of Adventure Tykes and http://www.AdventureTykes.com. Created by active parents, for active parents, Adventure Tykes features a variety of resources, tools and gear for parents who want to experience the great outdoors with their children.
“We are thrilled to provide a comprehensive online resource where active parents can gain knowledge and get motivated about outdoor adventures with their tykes, as well as buy all the clothing and gear they’ll need,” says Melissa Edge, founder of Adventure Tykes.
Before their son Jackson was born, Edge and her husband were warned by friends and family that his arrival would signal the end of their outdoor adventures -- no more road tripping, hiking, canyoneering, backpacking, mountain biking or rock climbing. No more nights under the stars. No more campfire s'mores.
“We weren’t about to sit back and let the adventure life pass us by. So we decided to do something about it and in the process, we’d prove all the naysayers wrong,” Edge says.
In-store and online searches provided little information for the active, soon-to-be parents. The Edges also found difficulty finding the appropriate outdoors clothing and accessories for infants and toddlers. Knowing that their must be others parents like them, they created http://www.AdventureTykes.com to provide an all-in-one community featuring both necessary gear and other information on enjoying various adventure activities with young children.
Adventure Tykes carries a variety of products from popular brands such as Kelty, Deuter, Icebreaker, Molehill, Belle Baby Carriers, MD Moms and more. Items available include front carriers and backpack carriers for use on the trails, as well as clothing, sunglasses and leg warmers for infants and toddlers. Parents will also find a selection of on-the-go items, including diaper and wipe carriers, pacifier carriers, travel blankets, baby-safe sunscreen and more. Adventure Tykes is the only store to provide such a diverse collection of outdoor gear for infants and toddlers in one convenient location.
In addition to its online shop, Adventure Tykes features a user forum where active parents can connect and share stories with one another. Users can also post pictures of their own Adventure Tykes in the site’s gallery, print out an infant or toddler gear checklist or read a selection of articles discussing the various outdoors trips parents and their children can take in the great outdoors.
