Quidsi owns and operates a family of sites linked together by the promise to make Mom’s life easier with fast, free shipping, award-winning customer care, and one shared cart & checkout. Quidsi continues to redefine e-commerce by changing the way people shop for almost every part of their lives. At Quidsi (Latin for "what if"), we dare to think big and explore every possibility.
We are the mom-centric retail technology company. We understand Mom and deliver delightful experiences, products, and expertise at the moment she needs them. We are the modern mom’s best friend.
