The TodPod is a first of it’s kind 3-1 multi-functional toddler bag that converts into a table and chair for toddlers. The TodPod is lightweight, portable and compact (unlike your conventional tables and chairs for toddlers). You can also pack in toys, coloring books, pencil cases and other accessories. This is a pretty useful product for many parents and toddlers out there.
A former employee of Junk Mail, Jared Pillai is the the CEO & Co-Founder of Million Baby and the inventor of TodPod. Being a father he noticed that toddlers around him got bored and were distracting their parents. He thought “what if I can I keep them occupied with their toys, crayons, coloring books within reach”. He came up with the concept of the TodPod.
Jared Pillai is currently in the Top 30 of the Big Break Legacy. The Big Break Legacy is an interactive reality TV show. Viewers are given an opportunity to vote for who they believe has the composite of a successful entrepreneur. The winner of The Big Break Legacy wins a R5 million investment into their business. It’s the largest prize ever offered on a South African reality TV show.
If he wins the R5 million investment, Jared plans to set up a manufacturing plant in South Africa and creating 500 jobs in the process. He’s also looking to expand into 60 countries over the next three years.
His mission is to be one of the biggest baby brands in the world and to become the largest baby product manufacturing company in South Africa and on the African continent. Jared Pillai has been battling for over two years to get the TodPod into the international market and he believes that this could be the big break that he’s been waiting for.
