Bugaboo Bee recalled

The CPSC announced today that the Bugaboo Bee stroller has been voluntarily recalled. Apparently the brake mechanism can wear out over time, causing it to fail on one or both sides. Thank goodness, no injuries have been reported. Anyone using this stroller should stop using it immediately and contact Bugaboo to receive a free repair kit. The form is simple ... Read More »

Britax Advocate CS arrives

The newest Britax car seat model hit our warehouse last week, and is now in our stores. The Britax Advocate CS is being hailed as the “safest” Britax model available, thanks to sophisticated side-impact protection technology.

Baby Jogger releases City Micro series

When I saw the City Mini stroller for the first time in Las Vegas in 2007, it was love at first sight.

As with all ... Read More »

All the products are German-designed and ... Read More »

Goodnight Sleep Trainer

This interesting product comes via 4Moms.

I remember feeling squeamish about the pressure right at the base of my abdomen, worrying if the baby would be OK if there was an accident. Apparently, it is a risk. The Tummy Shield ... Read More »
