Check out what yoyomama is doing…locally, connecting parents with kid-friendly events here.
30 Day Adventures, March 11th, 2013
yoyomama continues to evolve and answer the needs of it’s readers. Not content with the status quo Annemarie attracted some help and empowered a community so that families in Vancouver and Toronto could connect with each other and events that catered to them. Next came the APP, which is just another need that Annemarie saw wasn’t being met.

Vancouver Observer, April 11th, 2012
Tempelman-Kluit is especially proud of the new OnTheGoKids app. She went to great pains to ensure it was not just a portable version of the website. What information, she wondered, would parents want while on the go? The answer: kid-friendly local events.
