Padpod – Comfort by Design - established business ready to operate

Padpod – Comfort by Design Padpod™ was designed by then 13 year old Ellie for her Grandmother, who found it difficult to position her iPad and Kindle comfortably. Industrious young Ellie created a pyramid-shaped ‘beanbag’, Padpod.  With help from her occupational therapist mother it was refined and turned into a highly marketable product.  Over 30,00 have now been sold. Padpod is a simple, lightweight and infinitely adjustable device for holding an iPad or other device (even a book) in the most comfortable position for the user. It can be used at a desk, in an armchair, on a plane, on the couch, in bed or anywhere you can think of. Padpod suits all age groups from young children who need to use a device that is positioned stably and unable to fall, through to the elderly. Padpods are made from high

Padpod – Comfort by Design

Padpod™ was designed by then 13 year old Ellie for her Grandmother, who found it difficult to position her iPad and Kindle comfortably.

Padpod is a simple, lightweight and infinitely adjustable device for holding an iPad or other device (even a book) in the most comfortable position for the user. It can be used at a desk, in an armchair, on a plane, on the couch, in bed or anywhere you can think of.

Padpod suits all age groups from young children who need to use a device that is positioned stably and unable to fall, through to the elderly.

Padpods are made from high quality micro suede fabric. They are available in a great range of colours and differ from other iPad supports on the market in their unique pyramid shape which creates a stable platform.

There are 4 things that set this product apart.

  1. The way Padpod just works.  It does what it says it will do. 
  2. The brand story.
  3. The packaging. Customers love it.  For retail stores Padpods are packaged in a striking box which stands out and allows wholesale customers to do interesting things merchandising instore.  For online sales there is another packaging solution to make freight efficient. 
  4. Padpod are passionate about Australian manufacture and customers love that. 

Padpod has an established wholesale customer base but has plenty of room to grow.  It has an online retail store and sells into the US market on Amazon.  It's been successfully exported to China and New Zealand.

Padpod has trusted supplier relationships for manufacture.

Padpod has been run as a part-time, home-based business which might suit you too.  It has been great - the owners' kids have enjoyed being involved, which has been ideal during especially busy periods.  This has worked well for the owners as they have until recently wanted to minimise outside work, but have now returned to other full-time work and have been unable to give Padpod the time it deserves.

It would also be a perfect addition to add to an existing manufacturing business.

Included in the sale is:

  • website / website content
  • domain name and email addresses
  • artwork / logo / marketing materials
  • Trademarks
  • wholesale customer database
  • retail customer database
  • manufacture specifications
  • supplier relationships
  • all rights to the business
  • current stock (to be valued separately to business price)

The business is ready for you to pick up and run. Everything is in place for you to take this business to its uncapped potential. And while you learn the ropes, the owners are happy to assist in the transition to help you make a success of your new business.
