The First Orbit

Today, we were all very excited when UPS delivered our very first Orbit Infant System (just one for now). We eagerly opened the box and unpacked our new floor model, completed the simple assembly, and put it through its paces. We have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of this revolutionary new travel system since we first saw a prototype almost ... Read More »

Jane Powertwins are here!

The long-awaited Jane Powertwins have finally arrived in our warehouse. We’ve already presold many of them, but if you are interested in checking it out, stop by the store. I had a chance to play with one, and I liked it a lot. On our official warehouse scale, the stroller surprised us. According to everything we’d read, it was supposed ... Read More »

Valco’s Buggster – Off the beaten path (sort of)

Magic Beans is one of a few stores across the country to be debuting the new Buggster stroller from Valco. This is a very unique stroller concept, and Valco decided to try a limited introduction in order to test the market prior to a full launch. We recently received our first shipment of this stroller and tonight, we were fortunate ... Read More »

Baby Jogger joins the team

After a lot of careful consideration, thoughtful feedback from parents and thorough demonstrations, we decided to add Baby Jogger to our selection of active-lifestyle strollers. The City series is very similar to the Mountain Buggy Urbans and the Valco Runabouts, but they offer a folding mechanism that rivals the Inglesina Zippy for its incredible simplicity. In the crook of the ... Read More »

The Ultimate Maclaren: Now Available

Maclaren just keeps raising the bar on luxury. First, they introduced a series of designer Quest strollers, with fabrics by Kate Spade, Lulu Guiness and that most British of plaids, Burberry. Now, they are shipping the brand new CF6506, a stroller so high-tech and luxe that it’s apparently too cool for a normal name. The CF6506 is based on the ... Read More »

Giddy-up, Saddlebags

I’m sure everyone is very tired of listening to me extoll the virtues of the folks at Skip Hop. But they’ve done it again. They’ve designed another elegant storage solution for stroller-pushing parents that is destined for greatness. The new Saddlebag is just what it sounds like – a saddlebag for a stroller. Using a clever, patent-pending velcro strap system, ... Read More »

Hey, we’re (almost) famous!

Check out the new issue of US Weekly, with Tori Spelling on the cover, and you’ll find a great spread on page 82 about celebrity strollers. We’re very excited to be listed as sources for both the Orbit Infant System and the new Silver Cross Micro v2. They also mention the Stokke Xplory, which apparently Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ...

Silver Cross makes a stylish entrance

Back in May, I posted about the legendary stroller brand, Silver Cross, and their imminent return to the US market. Today I was invited to attend a very posh launch party at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston, where I had the opportunity to review the full line of strollers and speak with some of the executives from London Bridge ...

Silver Cross returns

After a sudden and unannounced withdrawal from the US market in 2005, Silver Cross is starting over. Hopefully this is good news. The new distributor, London Bridge Partners, is affiliated with Infantino, a well-run company that currently specializes in toys and some limited baby gear. They seem to have their act together, with a nice catalog and a well-organized product ... Read More »

Orbit almost landing…

We had a chance to check in with our friends at Orbit Baby today and play with the actual production samples of the Orbit Infant System. All I can say is it’s really going to be worth the wait. We’re told that we should have stock to sell by the end of June or first week of July. The final ... Read More »
