The inspiration for Tottoos came to us at a football stadium.
We were heading to the concessions stand and spotted a little girl standing up against a trashcan, crying. We asked if she needed help. She told us she couldn't find her mother. When we asked what her mother's name was, she said, "Mommy."
I stayed with her while my husband made his way through the sea of people in search of a security guard. I was thinking the whole time how worried the girl's mother must have been and wished I could just call her to let her know where her child was, and that she was safe.
My husband finally came back with a security guard and we waited for what seemed like an eternity before we finally spotted the woman who was frantically searching for her daughter.
They made an announcement a little later that there were over 84,000 people attending the game that day. It struck me just how lucky that girl and her mother were to have been able to find each other.
We are a family with 5 children. Keeping our children safe has been and always will be our top priority, and we know it is yours also. That is why we created Tottoos.
We travel frequently to community events in various cities to meet parents and educators. We have appeared as guest speakers in schools to help increase safety awareness. Our products have also been featured on several news broadcasts and publications around the country.
We are located in Urbana, MD, a suburb of Washington, DC.
We sincerely hope that our products will protect the people you love and give you additional peace of mind wherever you go.
