Valco Astro High Chair

When space is at a premium, a high chair can be a bit of a glutton for square footage. At mealtimes, there’s no getting around it (sometimes literally), but in between meals, wouldn’t it be nice if it could just disappear? The Valco Astro High Chair comes about as close as it can — without involving a magic wand. The ... Read More »

Day 23: Go Gaga Prize Package

GO-GAGA-slide-diaper-bag-copper-B-SL01-W-f

When babies first begin speaking, a lot of their vocalizations involve repeated syllables – “mama” and “dada,”  of course, but also other phrases that sound similar, like goo-goo and ga-ga. (This is also why, during the 2008 election, Youtube was full of videos of babies saying “Obama” – it just rolls off the infant tongue.) As such, Go Gaga is ... Read More »

kettler-air-navigator-2010-kettrike-with-seatbelt-8839-599-f

Contrary to popular rumor, the motto “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds” is not the official Postal Service creed. But the motto inscribed on the James Farley Post Office in New York City is nevertheless taken pretty seriously by many letter carriers, like Richard Doherty ... Read More »

4moms-mamaroo-silver-MROO-side-f

Day 10: phil&ted’s Nest

phil-and-teds-nest-bed-and-bag-ne-v1-99-f

Everyone has their own sleep styles, patterns, and positions. In the US and Europe, we mostly sleep in elevated beds with blankets and pillows.

Various hunter-gatherer societies sleep either on leaves, on thin mats, or on the bare ... Read More »
