Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, January 21, 2013 – KidCrates announced today the launch of a unique online discovery engine designed to introduce parents to the latest kid-related products, brands and activities. Once a parent shares some brief profile information about their child’s likes and interests, the KidCrates engine begins to match them to specific toys, apps and other activities. The engine continually learns from profile updates and on-site behavior to keep on-going recommendations timely and relevant.
Parents can purchase products à la carte or choose to receive personalized monthly KidCrates tailored to match the evolving profile of their child. Parents can select the items themselves or can hand the decision-making over to KidCrates and share in the surprise with their child when their crate arrives each month.
To celebrate its launch, KidCrates is offering the chance to win a 12-month subscription and gain exclusive access to its latest discoveries.

Ultimately, KidCrates provides parents with an innovative purchasing experience and comfort that lets them feel they’ve made a smart, responsible decision that demonstrates their commitment to their most valuable investment – their children.”
