stokke tripp trapp high chair

When I first heard about the new Signature Collection Tripp Trapp chair, I was skeptical. I read the email on my iPhone as it loaded, first the text and then the pictures. My first thought was, why would anyone buy a super-expensive, pretty Tripp Trapp when the regular Tripp Trapp chairs are already so nice looking? I changed my mind ... Read More »

The new Movement Edition of the Bumbleride Indie Stroller adds outdoorsy touches to the well-loved all-terrain jogger: water-resistant sport fabrics, and SPF 45 sun protection in the canopy, so that weather conditions don’t have to break your stride.
