Skip Hop goes deluxe

The new versions of the popular Skip Hop diaper bags have just arrived. By way of a reminder, here’s what has changed (from my Skip Hop recap at the ABC show): The Duo and Dash are both getting some upgrades, significant enough to earn them both the subtitle “Deluxe Edition.” Magnetic closures and PVC-free changing pads are two of the ...

Dining Sets Reviewed

Babble.com just posted a review of baby dining sets today, and the Baby Bjorn plate set we submitted received an honorable mention. I think the author did a very nice job rounding up the best of what’s on the market. The only thing notably missing is the new Skip Hop Palette Plate, which I really liked at the ABC Show, ...

Triple whammy

First of all, I am so flattered by the lovely comments on the birthday post. You really made me feel great. Thank you. But the party’s over and I have three new product “issues” to share with you. First, Britax is recalling a limited number of Marathon car seats manufactured between May 23, 2006 and July 28, 2006. Apparently, the ... Read More »

Sock it to ’em

Don’t even talk to me about stretch marks. You might think you had it bad, but let me assure you, mine were worse. I won’t go into details, but trust me. So this is a product that is, at least to me, particularly genius. The Belly Sock is basically exactly what it sounds like – a big sock for your ... Read More »

Soon, we’ll have a web interface where you can design your own chair. In the meantime, if you like what you see, or if you have your own ideas, just ... Read More »

M1 Carrier is A1

If you’ve read my previous post, you already know how the M1 Carrier came into existence. If not, all you need to know is this: it was designed from the ground up to be better than the Baby Björn. At first glance, you might actually mistake the M1 for a Björn, but there are several features that set it apart. ... Read More »

Carry on and on and on

This post started out as a review of the new M1 baby carrier from Lascal, the company that brought us the Buggy Board and Kiddy Board, in partnership with Regal Lager, the venerable US distributor of, among others, Lascal and Phil and Teds, and who also distrubuted Baby Björn for 14 years until that relationship came to an end in ...

Signo update

Just heard from Recaro that the first shipment of Signo seats are set to arrive in the US on November 15th. I’ll keep you posted… Read More »

So that one’s Ted?

Sometimes it’s the little things that make me so happy. Like this brilliant accessory to the Phil & Teds stroller line. The Lazy Ted is basically a metal base for the Doubles Kit seat of the Phil & Teds (the one that clicks on to the back of the stroller) that turns the seat into an infant rocker. I love ...

Non-scents

Little Twig has come out with a new line of extra mild, unscented bath and body products for babies and kids. They’ve got a body wash, bubble bath, bodymilk and diaper cream, all of which are organic and 100% natural, like all of the Little Twig products, but without the scented essential oils. They’re great for anyone with sensitive skin ... Read More »
