As a father myself, I was frustrated with the limited and often redundant amount of information that is accessible for parents, grandparents, and caregivers to find local kids activities on the go. Everything required hours of research or web searches. There was no easy mobile method to find the fun and interesting family activities nearby that I was looking for.
My wife and I relocated several times with our son (from New York, to Zurich, to Vienna, back to New Jersey), and with each move we would again face the struggle of finding activities to do with our son as we acclimated to our new environment. Wanting simply to spend every second of free time having fun as a family, we found instead that we were spending a lot of time just trying to find new things to do in our area.
Other friends and family members also lamented the lack of a resource for families, so I set out to find a solution. I reached out to my brother in 2013 and invited him to join me on a journey to build a mobile App that would massively simplify parents’ lives by providing them with the freshest ideas for kids activities in seconds – whenever and wherever they need them.
The result is Yuggler.
More than two years later, we are the most popular App in the Lifestyle/Family category of the App Store, have won awards such as the Parents’ Choice Approved Award, and have satisfied over 60,000 parents with the freshest and coolest ideas. The App has the largest user-base in the New York Metropolitan area, offering over 30,000 manually curated kids activities and 19,000 active deals. Our proprietary, semi-automated approach enables us to capture, curate, and manage the content, helping us bring the latest ideas for kids activities to parents on a daily basis. Besides simplifying the search for things to do for children, Yuggler also enables parents to organize these ideas via bookmarks, favorites, and reminders. Additionally, customized notifications ensure that nobody ever misses the action in their local neighborhood, especially for the activities they love the most.
