Gastonia mom Marni Peteres wants to get her idea out to kids and is looking for funding to do it. Petpak™ is a multi-use backpack that is also a pillow, pouch and tray top that makes travel more fun for kids and easier for parents. The goal of designing the Petpak™ was to create the ultimate explorer-travel buddy for the modern mobile child.

Whether kids want to take an imaginative journey or real one, the Petpak™ is the friend that children will want to share their adventures with. Kids can choose from four animal friends -- Emmi Elephant, Ping Panda, Leonty Lion, Cee the Pig. Each pet features a soft, washable chenille fabric for snuggling and sleeping, a large pouch for trinkets, games, books and snacks and an indented tray for activities or eating.

“As a mother I know the challenge of traveling with two young children in a car, on a train and especially on airplanes,” explains Marni Peters, Founder of Marn.iA & Co., former airline executive and designer of the Petpak™. “When we designed the Petptak™ we focused on the solutions to those challenges -- in particular, the need to keep children happy and engaged in fun activities. I tested prototypes on my own six and four-year old children as we traveled around the country, and I can attest to the fact that the Petpak™ can help keep kids busy with productive play and provide parents with a chance to relax and enjoy travel time too,” says Peters.

The Petpak™ is being launched using the newest crowdfunding platform, Open Tilt. The campaign, which began March 26, will run for 30 days with a goal of $30,000 to manufacturer the initial order, or “tilt” the project, and a goal of $100,000 to fully launch the Petpak™ in the marketplace.
