A view in the womb

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a woman whose company recently opened an elective 3D-4D ultrasound, Goldenview Ultrasound, just down the street from our store in Brookline. She was interested in doing some marketing together, since our businesses both see a lot of pregnant women. I was very hesitant. Common sense (and my Bradley Birth teacher from my ... Read More »

Wellesley is open!

Our Wellesley location opened its doors yesterday afternoon, just in time for our Grand Opening Weekend celebration. Looking back, I can’t believe we pulled it off. Two new stores in less than two weeks. But the new stores look great, and hopefully we’ll catch up on sleep during Thanksgiving. I’ll be at the Hingham store on Sunday, so if you’re ... Read More »

Grand Opening Weekend is coming up

We’re celebrating our Grand Opening Weekend in all three stores next weekend, and every single expectant or new parent in the entire New England region should know about this. Why? Because in addition to promising a fun time, we are giving away thousands and thousands of dollars worth of gear. Our vendors are almost as excited as we are about ... Read More »

Magic Beans Hingham is Open

This morning, we opened the doors to our new store in Hingham. It was pouring rain, but nothing could possibly dampen the excitement around here. The process of designing and building a new store has been in the works for more than a year, and it’s hard to find the words to really express how I’m feeling. Exhausted is the ... Read More »

Fuzzy Wuzzies

Check out these amazing hats, called Wuzzies. Each one is knitted by hand and lined with soft fleece for plenty of warmth without any itchies. The designs are fun, funky and each one is one-of-a-kind. And the best part is, the idea was born at Magic Beans. Two of our talented employees, Skye and Mary Kate, who both recently graduated ...

Finding Sitters Fast

This is a hoot. I’m a member of SitterCity.com, a site that helps parents find babysitters. I’ve had very good luck, actually, but now SitterCity has come up with a new way for parents to scope out the sitter situation. On Wednesday October 3rd, SitterCity is offering a free SpeedSitting event in Boston at Faneiul Hall. What is SpeedSitting, you ... Read More »

Tax Free Holiday is On!

Governor Patrick has signed the bill approving the annual sales tax holiday weekend on August 11-12. This is the fourth summer in a row that Massachusetts has done this, and it’s a great time to buy all sorts of things. Put the date on your calendar, and if you’re in the area come by Magic Beans. Or if you want ... Read More »

The party-which-must-not-be-named

Unless you’re living under a rock, you probably already know that the 7th Harry Potter book will ago on sale at midnight on Friday night. If you’re local to Boston, I hope you’ll come to Coolidge Corner for Potterpalooza. Unfortunately, due to a bit of a fracas with Warner Bros, I can’t say too much about the event here, but ...

Fleet of Foot?

If you live in the area, don’t miss Brookline’s annual Flag Day 5k road race this coming Sunday morning (June 17). Magic Beans is a race sponsor and in fact, my nutty husband has issued the following challenge: any Team Beans runner who beats his time will receive $5 in store credit for every 30 seconds they finish ahead of ...

Room to Groove Giveaway!

On Saturday June 16 (one week from today) at 10:30am, don’t miss Room to Groove, a family concert in Boston featuring children’s artists including Elizabeth Mitchell and David Weinstone and the Music for Aardvarks Band. Sponsored by WBOS and Boston Common Magazine, Room to Groove is a fundraiser for one of my favorite local organizations, Room to Grow. This promises ... Read More »
