SANTA FE, N.M.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BabyQuip, the #1 global baby gear rental marketplace, has expanded from family travel into new territory with the launch of BabyQuip Party, the first national marketplace for baby and kids party rentals. BabyQuip Party is now available in 45+ cities across the U.S. with more being added every week, just in time for birthdays, spring and summer parties, and holidays.
“As the premier service renowned for supporting family travel by providing families with high-quality clean, safe, and insured baby and toddler gear, branching into kids party gear rentals was a natural step for BabyQuip,” said Fran Maier, BabyQuip CEO and Founder. “From helping families create a kid-friendly and extra-fun party environment, to giving hosts an affordable, commitment-free alternative to purchasing gear that’s expensive and inconvenient, BabyQuip Party solves some of the pain points associated with family events.”
BabyQuip Party supports families with all of their baby and kids party rental needs, ranging from entertainment-focused gear like soft play zones, ball pits, and lawn games to essential equipment such as kids’ tables and chairs, high chairs, and diaper changing stations.
Leveraging BabyQuip’s simple and seamless experience, BabyQuip Party connects party hosts with Quality Providers (BabyQuip’s fully-vetted independent contractor community) through the platform’s managed marketplace. Families can book and modify short-term party gear reservations, which are typically 4 to 6 hours, through the user-friendly website and app.
As part of BabyQuip’s concierge-style service, all rentals are sanitized, delivered, set-up/disassembled, and picked-up by Quality Providers. To-date, BabyQuip’s Quality Provider network has served over 150,000 families and received over 40,000 5-star reviews.
BabyQuip Party is currently offered in select cities including Los Angeles (CA), Orange County (CA), San Diego (CA), Orlando (FL), New York (NY), Dallas/Fort Worth (TX), Seattle (WA), and Philadelphia (PA), and is projected to be in all 50 states by the end of the year. “Our Quality Providers across the U.S. have already seen the demand for party sets, so creating a dedicated service offering makes renting party gear even easier for families and Quality Providers alike,” said Maier.
