Giveaways Day 19 – Bugaboo Bee Plus 2010

I’m going to admit something. I was wrong about the Bugaboo Bee. When I first saw the Bee, I thought the Bugaboo folks had lost their collective minds. It might have been the “most compact Bugaboo stroller”, but that didn’t make it compact enough to sneak into the coveted lightweight stroller category. No, it was decidedly mid-size, an unpopular, neither-here-nor-there ... Read More »

Giveaways Day 16 – Britax B-Ready Stroller

I sat down to write today’s blog post about the Britax B-Ready stroller, but because this is such a new item (it just hit our warehouse yesterday) and I had SO much to say, I decided to give it its very own post, aside from the 31 Days of Giveaways. If you want all the details (and I do mean ... Read More »

Britax B-Ready Stroller – an in depth review

When Britax called a few months back and asked to schedule a time to come to Boston to show me a new stroller, I have to admit I rolled my eyes. Britax, a brand revered for quality and design in car seats, has been trying unsuccessfully to break in to the stroller category for years. I’ve never seen a stroller ... Read More »

Giveaways Day 14 – Mountain Buggy Terrain

It’s no secret the BOB Revolution has totally dominated the sport stroller category for a number of years. So when Mountain Buggy showed off the Terrain at the ABC show last fall, our first question was “Why this and not that?” As it turns out, the Mountain Buggy Terrain addresses some deficiencies that exist in pretty much every other running ...

Giveaways Day 11 – Bumbleride Indie Twin

When we first opened the store, Bumbleride was part of our stroller mix. We loved the fresh colors and patterns and the reasonable prices. As time went on, our stroller department got crowded, and for one reason or another, the Bumblerides didn’t make the cut. We’ve kept a close eye on the company over the years, always stopping to say ... Read More »

Giveaways Day 8 – Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller

Today’s giveaway is our biggest yet. The Bugaboo Cameleon is still the gold standard in the hybrid stroller category. Many have tried to come close, but no other stroller matches the quality of design and range of functionality of the Cameleon. With a reversible seat and a reversible handlebar, the Cameleon can adapt to virtually any environment, and with the ... Read More »

Giveaways Day 2 – Maclaren Quest Zodiac

Maclaren is known for their quirky special edition strollers, many designed by some of the hottest names in fashion. But for 2010, one of these limited edition strollers is the Zodiac Quest – it’s not designed by anyone you’ve ever seen on E! but it’s a really fun idea and a sweet ride too. The seat fabric is a night ... Read More »

Stokke Xplory 2010 prelaunch

The Stokke Xplory always gets mixed reactions from parents in our stores. The design is unconventional, and the price point is on the high end. No stroller is going to appeal to everyone, but I’ve always thought that the Xplory gets overlooked a little too often. When Zev was born, I got one as a gift from my friends at ... Read More »

The Bugaboo you don’t know

Eli and I recently spent two days in Amsterdam, where we had the privilege of visiting the Bugaboo headquarters. The purpose of the meeting was to see some new products and lend our feedback. And while I wish I could talk about that, I signed a non-disclosure agreement, and violating it would be a heck of a way to repay ... Read More »

Mini-ABC Wrap Up

Last week, I made a quick trip to Louisville, KY to take a look at the ABC Kids Spring Conference. This is the second year that ABC, who produces the massive juvenile industry show each Fall, has mounted this event. It’s a small show, especially compared to the behemoth in Las Vegas, but it’s only for specialty retailers who have ... Read More »
