Pint Size translates the current height and weight of a child into a growth curve that can predict future height and weight values up to age 20 using Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) data and formulas. These predictions are turned into sizes for any of the 44 clothing brands Pint Size currently includes, enabling a more consistent and reliable clothes fit for the child.
These predications create the opportunity take advantage of the significant savings that retailers give when clothing seasons come to an end. Growth measurements can be entered in U.S., U.K., or Metric units, enabling consumers worldwide to use Pint Size when traveling to the U.S. to determine the correct U.S. size for their children. Buying children's clothes is often a shared activity so Pint Size supports sharing this information via email, text, or Facebook. And parents enjoy telling the story of their children growing up, so Pint Size has included a photo album with a slide show to display all those photos capturing the child's growth history.
"I love this app, and have already found it changing the way I shop - giving me the freedom to try new brands, and a convenient way to always have the information I need with me so that I can grab a great deal when I see one, whether it's for right now, next season, or even next year," says Cheryl Cobb, originator of the app concept. "Exploring the implications of what Cheryl wanted led us to discover that no one had connected the power of growth charts with the opportunity to get great deals on children's clothing by buying ahead of time," said Rob Lee , founder of Crazed Kitty Software. "Whether it is taking advantage of clothing sales, tripping across a great find at a consignment or thrift shop, or being an international traveler, knowing the right size before you buys gives you more control over your clothing budget. And this is especially true for our youngest children, where their rapid growth often means an item of clothing could be used by multiple children before it is worn out."
In this initial release Pint Size supports multiple families, giving grandparents, aunts, and uncles, and extended family to keep track of the children in their lives. This enables gift buying without the need to call for current sizes, or locating another child who is or soon will be ready for the clothes your child is retiring. And sharing this information is easy; a child's sizes in a favorite brand can be distributed via email, text, or Facebook.
