We had the good fortune of connecting with Joshua & Kara Plummer and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Joshua & Kara, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
We recently took a holiday vacation with our 10 month old daughter. Traveling with bulky baby gear proved to be challenging, so we looked into renting gear out of town. Our lives were completely changed by the ease and simplicity of baby gear rental. We decided we wanted to share this experience with other families in our home town. We started our
business as an additional source of income and it has proved to be so much more.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
SD Baby Gear Rentals aims to help decrease stress for traveling families by providing high-quality baby gear with friendly and prompt customer service. We help traveling families pack light and also help local family members host their loved ones. We strive to make travel as hassle-free as possible. We understand the importance of product cleanliness and safety and make this a priority when providing the items to make your kids at home on the road. With our experience, we strive to become the leaders in baby gear rentals.


Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Our friends love to bring their children to visit, so we take them to all of our favorite family-friendly places. The San Diego Zoo is a must-see for anyone visiting San Diego. As a small, San Diego based business ourselves, we enjoy supporting local restaurants, coffee shops and breweries in our neighborhood including: Lestat’s, Meraki Cafe, Mona Lisa and Cordiano Winery. You can’t forget the beach when visiting San Diego, walking along the boardwalk in Mission Beach/Bay is always a hit.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Our 10 month old daughter Emery deserves credit for our success. She is our motivation behind the company. We have a passion for travel and want to be able to show her the world. This company allows us to help other families traveling to San Diego to pack light and travel happy.
