Our Story

The story of GrowingGiraffe began during the pandemic in 2020 when all of us were in lockdown and got to spend more time with the family. It started with Vishal Zaveri, a Sales and Operations wizard and father to a very bright and beautiful newborn baby girl. While working from home, he had the opportunity to observe his daughter grow more closely. He realized that the toys she played with ended up becoming redundant as she chose her most favourite ones and left the others untouched. Can you really blame her though? All of us have our favourite things that we use all the time, don’t we? Also, what happens to those toys when the child outgrows them? Or lose interest? The cost of toys, accumulation of clutter and the need to constantly update the toys and ensure learning was too much. The limited buying capacity, limited space and the need to constantly update the toys and ensure learning was what seeded the idea of toy rentals!

Vishal started doing his research and found out that there are a lot of toy libraries around the city. The biggest hassle that people face is pick up and delivery. That is when he approached Mitesh Khajanchi, a Chartered Accountant, where he and his family have been veterans in the field of distribution for more than 6 decades. He is a father to a curious and playful son. Months of discussion and brainstorming led them to create an online space to provide parents like them a platform to choose and rent the best toys and books which will be age appropriate and be delivered to their doorstep.

The next step was to find someone who has the experience of working with young children and could guide them with the different developmental milestones and skills that are important for a child at a particular age. This is where Gunjan Shah stepped in. She is a teacher with experience of more than 8 years with children varying in ages between 2 and 10. Her knowledge and aptitude helped in creating a base for the learning and fun we hope to give to your children during your time with us.
