Allison, a client from Ontario, sent me an email this morning to thank me for our service. She and her family rented a Full Size Crib for her 1 year old son while visiting family in Calgary this past December.
Her email said, “I just wanted to thank you for your service over the holidays. it was very convenient and took a lot of the stress our of this trip. I was very happy with the quality and cleanliness of the items and very impressed with your customer service. We will be using your again!”
We delivered and set up a GULLIVER full size crib rental with a 4 inch spring mattress, waterproof mattress pad and 100% cotton fitted sheet at the home of her brother and sister in laws. We coordinated the delivery/set up around their busy work schedules and whisked the rental gear away after the holidays were over.
Her brother and sister in law said that everyone slept really well, especially the 1 year old!

We’re looking forward to meeting a whole bunch of new moms and expectant moms at the Mommylicious Trade Fair March 6, 2011 in Edmonton.
Held at the Mayfield Inn & Suites (16615-109 Avenue) in the Grand Ballroom.
One Tiny Suitcase will be exhibiting at this trade fair and highlighting our Fetal Doppler Rentals and Medela Breast Pump Rentals.
One Tiny Suitcase was started in May 2006. In the last 4 years we seen lots of growth, lots of customers, lots of babies, new moms, new dads, expectant parents, grandmas, etc.
After expanding the business to include a location in Edmonton in 2009, we decided to open a 3rd location in Winnipeg (click to see the video) this November.
Winnipeg is my home town and is a great city for families. We’re looking forward to providing Baby Equipment Rentals to our customers who live in and visit the area.
I read a really great post by some friends of mine in the Baby Equipment Rentals business at Wee Travel.
Have a look at this post regarding what types of seats are best for use on board an aircraft. This is a regular question from customers that like to travel with their children.
We also carry the Cosco Scenera car seats at One Tiny Suitcase for this very reason. Our seats rent for $40/week and we have a convenient pick up/drop off location at the Calgary International Airport.
Have more questions about travelling with a baby? Give us a call, we’d love to help you out.
For the first time in the history of the Calgary Stampede, the chuckwagon races were cancelled due to rain on Tuesday.
It was a crazy day of rain in Calgary.
Luckily the skies look friendly today for Kids Day at Stampede Park.
At One Tiny Suitcase, I had some strange customer calls too due to all this rain. We got a call from a Mom with a 3-year-old boy in a cast who recently broke his toe. They needed a stroller to enjoy the Stampede.
Another mom called later in the evening requested a stroller because her son and slipped off a curb and injured his leg. We rented that family a ZOOPER stroller for a visit to Heritage Park.
Enjoy the Calgary Stampede and…be safe.
My sister is pregnant with her first baby and I am so excited for her. As the little sister who had twins a few years ago she informed me that it was my job to tell her all the ‘baby things’ she is going to need.
We went to a local baby store to register her for all of this ‘stuff’. Top of the list was a Baby Bjorn carrier. It is one of those baby items that I an recommend without question.
New baby gear comes along all the time but the Baby Bjorn carrier has not been improved upon by any other product in my opinion.
Aside from just day to day use, my Baby Bjorn carriers were invaluable for travel. My carriers were used for getting us from the car into the airport, around the airport before our flight and were very helpful in navigating the narrow aisles of a plane with a baby and a carry on bag.
There are few ‘classics’ that I would recommend, but this is one of them!
When I opened One Tiny Suitcase in May 2006 it was in response to my own travel woes. I had twins and we were ‘on the road’ in one form or another starting when they were about 2 months old.
I loved the concept of Baby Equipment Rentals and couldn’t help my entrepreneurial itch to get a business of my own started.
4 years later, One Tiny Suitcase has grown to include a bigger range of Baby Equipment Rentals for young families and two locations (Calgary & Edmonton).
Check out the latest coverage in the Calgary Herald about our Medela breast pump & Fetal doppler rentals:
Hear Your Baby’s Heartbeat — Every Day
Equipment Rentals – Expecting parents tired of waiting for the monthly doctor visits to hear their little one’s heartbeat can now get a pulse on the baby whenever they like, thanks to One Tiny Suitcase.
The Calgary-based company rents medical-grade fetal doppler units — the same ones used in doctor’s offices. Moms especially love the units because they can share the auditory experience with older children or grandparents, says company owner Stacey Corbett.
One Tiny Suitcase has also started renting Medela breast pumps. New moms can pre-order a pump and thus avoid driving around from drugstore to drugstore searching for one after the baby arrives (the company offers free pump delivery and pick up).
The company originally launched as a service for visitors to Calgary; a place where they could rent strollers, car seats, cribs or high chairs (instead of travelling with them).
Corbett soon realized there was a demand by Calgarians for a wider range of specialized baby gear.
We often get questions from parents who are trying to get to and from the Airport with kids. It’s not always convenient to take your car seats with you if you don’t plan to travel with them.
Airporter Shuttle Express in Calgary has included One Tiny Suitcase on their website for families looking to rent Car Seats to get them to and from the Calgary Airport.
