Nanny Caddy Vending Machines Installed at Museums, Zoos and Gardens
Posted on March 30, 2011
The Nanny Caddy is a vending machine that dispenses items a mother may need, such as diapers, diaper cream, baby wipes, pacifiers and sunscreen. New locations for the machines include the New York's Bronx Zoo and Brooklyn Children's Museum, and San Francisco's Gilroy Gardens. Nanny Caddys can be found near the entrance or near family restrooms with prices of items ranging from $2 to $10.
Since its launch in 2008 by an Arizona mother of two, Nanny Caddy kiosks have been sprouting up across the country. They are now in 10 states, in places like SeaWorld Orlando, Legoland, Chicago's Field Museum, the Houston Zoo and Philadelphia International Airport.
Patrick K. FitzGerald, Nanny Caddy's CEO, says, "Nanny Caddy is the cure for parents who find themselves without the supplies they need when they are away from home with young children. That one small purchase can make the difference between staying someplace and having fun and packing up and going home."
