Dragon's Den

Jared Pillai who is the CEO / Co-founder of Million Baby and the inventor of the TodPod was an investee on Dragon’s Den South Africa.

While sitting in church one Sunday, Jared the founder of TodPod noticed many children are getting bored, irritable and uninterested while distracting their parents. The thought of seeing an obvious need of a product was a primary motivator for action. “What if I could keep the children occupied, safely and comfortably seated with their books, toys and crayons within reach?”. This was the beginning of an incredible adventure.

The TODPOD was born – Your Child’s Best Friend. One simple bag to carry toys, coloring books, crayons, play dough etc, and VIOLA, believe it or not, the bag can quickly and easily be converted into a table and chair.

The TodPod is a 3 in 1 multi-functional bag that converts into a table and chair for a child. It has been designed as an activity station to ease everyday life for families with children – inside as well as outside the home.
