Bib-bity Bobbity Boo – it’s an instant bib

My mom discovered Kipiis (www.kipiis.com) long before we owned our store. She saw them in a magazine and thought they were the ultimate grandparent accessory. She was right, though parents love them, too. Compact, durable and effective, Kipiis can turn practically anything into a bib, anytime, anywhere. It’s one of my favorite diaper bag essentials. Reminiscent of the metal clips ... Read More »

New Phil and Ted’s colors are in

Although the Phil and Ted’s e3 doesn’t have any real design changes for 2006, they are offering four new colors, available immediately. There’s orange, black, sand and lime green. If our website is showing these are out of stock, it’s just that we haven’t finished receiving them – I have seen them and I know they are physically here. If ... Read More »

2006 Mountain Buggy Colors

We’re holding our breath waiting for our first shipment of 2006 Mountain Buggy strollers, due this week (we hope). Today, we received images of the whole 2006 lineup, which are already in place on our website. Follow this link to check them out. I’m particularly excited about the new Cabana color. I don’t think the photos do it justice. Those ... Read More »

The Powertwin is Coming

The Jane Powertwin enjoys somewhat legendary status here in the US. Widely thought to be the best double stroller that isn’t yet available on this side of the ocean, stroller afficionados speak in reverant whispers of the Powertwin’s narrow footprint, smooth handling and two full-size reclining seats. We’d heard much about the Powertwin, so we were eager to sell it ... Read More »

Rest, Relaxation and Field Testing

After a grueling holiday season, we were ready for some quality time with the kids. We had plenty of frequent flier miles and a wide window of time in January. I started researching (or as my husband calls it, obsessing). I found Tripadvisor.com, which was both completely invaluable and endlessly frustrating. There are literally millions of traveler reviews that cover ... Read More »

Geuther ’round

In this brave new world of design-conscious parents, European wooden high chairs have become a ubiquitous presence. Whether it’s the clean zigzag of the Stokke Kinderzeat or the elegant curves of the Svan chair, these attractive seats offer the added appeal of longevity. Both will adjust to accommodate children or adults, using a simple allen wrench to move the seat ... Read More »

7am Enfant

It was about a year ago that I trailed a woman two blocks down Broadway in Manhattan so I could read the label on her stroller bunting. That was my first encounter with 7am Enfant, and it was worth the effort. These yummy buntings are more like miniature sleeping bags. They are beautiful, chic and very warm. The company had ...

Swaddle SO easy

If you’ve had a baby and stayed in a hospital, chances are you’ve marveled at the nurses’ aptitude for swaddling. Babies usually spend the first days of their lives wrapped up tight, courtesy of the nurses. Then, you get home and despite having paid attention to frequent demonstrations (in the midst of post-partum haziness), you discover that swaddling is quite ... Read More »

Too much of a good thing= very good deals

2005 was a very good year for Mountain Buggy. In spite of a minor recall, we’ve seen the popularity of these all-terrain strollers soar. The success is well-deserved. The strollers are sturdy, well-constructed and phenomenally smooth to handle. In an effort to meet the incredible demand, Mountain Buggy ended the year slightly overstocked. Better than the alternative, for sure, and ... Read More »
