Tell us about Keekaroo’s background. When did Keekaroo start and how has it evolved since then?
Our story begins in 1967 when our founder Tim Bergeron was a student developing a new type of therapeutic equipment for children. He found this research both exciting and close to home. His daughter was born with Down Syndrome and he wanted more than anything to help her live a comfortable life. From his research, he discovered many children in the juvenile market could benefit from these products as well.
What are the most popular and newest products from Keekaroo?
The Keekaroo Peanut Changer is one of the hottest registry items on the market today according to numerous sources, but we are also proud of our Height Right High Chair with Infant Insert because of its therapeutic benefits.
What sets Keekaroo apart in the baby marketplace?
