Proudly serving the San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose Bay Area

We are a family-owned small business that enjoys helping parents make healthy decisions for their young children and the earth.

Our Story

Since 1966 it is estimated that our family, along with our faithful staff, have laundered over 680 million (680,000,000) diapers. We are the original curbside recycler.

Tiny Tots has offered convenient home pick up and delivery of cotton diapers in the SF Bay Area since 1966. This was possible due to the generosity of my grandmother. $12,000 covered the cost for diapers, two Kenmore washers/dryers, a delivery vehicle and a little bit more.

Our Mission

Our mission is to be a resource for families by giving them options for making healthy decisions for their children and our earth.

We accomplish this by:

  • Providing simple, natural and functional diapering options that can be reused over and over again.
  • Continually researching new products. Providing options without being overwhelming.
  • Whenever available, giving preference to locally and American made manufacturers.
  • Providing practical, relevant and family friendly workshops and events for parents to have fun, learn and grow.
  • Being diligent to the continuous training of our team.
  • Being a location that families can come to and experience a sense of community.
  • Providing “over and above” customer service, on a consistent basis.
