CINCINNATI — A new business started by a mom on the West Side could help local parents entertain their children with a good old-fashioned sleepover.

Megan Redmond started the company Cincy Sleepovers during the pandemic when her and her family's summer vacation turned into a staycation. They tried to make everyday things special and fun instead.

So they made sleepover kits. Each kit comes with a tent, air mattress, pillows, blankets, a tray table, themed sheets and other accessories. Some of their current themes include Bengals and Harry Potter.

In addition to ordering a kit, Cincy Sleepovers comes to you to set up the kit up so you can surprise your children, grandchildren or anyone else with a sleepover.

"We've had kids cry, it has brought such joy," Redmond said. "The most exciting part is feeling like we can be a really smart part in bringing some joy and excitement during a time where things are just a little lacking."

The sleepovers start off at $175, and the company is open to new theme ideas, which you can submit on their Facebook page.
