Riding in style

The 2006 Bumbleride collection is out, and these are some very pretty strollers. The fabrics are so sophisticated they seem almost ahead of their time. But not quite. The new and improved Flyer is the most eagerly anticipated of the ’06 lineup, and demand is so high that availability will be somewhat limited for the next few months. The team ... Read More »

Graco thinks big

The new SafeSeat from Graco has arrived, and although it’s been a very quiet product launch, this is one of the most important new arrivals of 2006. Until now, parents have generally accepted that they will need a minimum of three car seats to get from infancy through childhood. Even under the new standards, infant car seats can accommodate babies ... Read More »

It’s smart, but is it a buggy?

Check out the new Smart Buggy from Phil and Ted’s, and you’ll discover a sort of cross between a stroller and hand truck. We spent a good amount of time puzzling over one on Friday, and IMHO this is a very innovative concept, but it may still need to work out some kinks before it’s a true success. The good: ...

Carseat: Check.

Did you know that this is Child Passenger Safety Week? We heard a rumor last week that the Brookline Police Department was suspending their car seat inspection program, but I have spoken with them this morning, and this rumor is false. They are still doing inspections regularly, by appointment. They have been swamped lately, so appointments are just getting harder ... Read More »

Primo Viaggio SIP is AOK

Until 2006, the best-selling Peg Perego Primo Viaggio car seat had a major drawback. It could not be installed in a car without the accompanying base. This may not seem like a big deal, but ask any parent who had to trek through an airport lugging not only an infant car seat, but also the bulky base, and he or ... Read More »

2006 Mountain Buggy line is here

We’ve received our first shipment of 2006 Mountain Buggy strollers. We have Urban singles and doubles, and I believe all colors are in stock, at least for the moment. They look beautiful, and the improvements are really nice. Read More »

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 »
