Sidewalk Sale in Brookline this weekend

The Sidewalk Sale has become an annual tradition in Coolidge Corner, drawing bargain hunters from all over the Boston area. This year, our haul is better than ever with some amazing steals on baby gear and toys. Our team has been working so hard for the past few weeks to prepare for this, and now the trucks are packed up ... Read More »

Orbit G2 available for preview and preorder

We’re big Orbit Baby fans around here, so we were psyched when Orbit invited us to participate in the pre-launch of their new G2 Infant System and Stroller. Our Brookline and Wellesley stores are among the first stores in the whole country to have an actual G2 available for demonstrations and test-drives, and our web site is now accepting pre-orders. ...

Here Come the Hammocks

What’s the latest trend in the “everything old is new again” department? Baby hammocks. At this year’s ABC show, three different companies were showing hammock models: the Hushamok, which has been available for about three months, the Miyo, which has just arrived, and the Amby Motion Bed, which has been around for a while. Putting babies in hammocks to sleep ... Read More »

Busted for Breastfeeding on Amtrak

This is the sort of thing I read about in newspapers, but isn’t supposed to happen to me. But it did. A couple of weeks ago, after spending Rosh Hashanah in New York, we decided to travel back to Boston on the Acela train. Zev doesn’t love long car rides, and he’s got a great set of lungs, so we ...

Speaking of Orbit: Road Test I

For the past ten weeks, I’ve been conducting an elaborate road test of the Orbit Infant System. Or, more specifically, I’ve been using it with Zev. I’ve been a fan of the Orbit since its debut, but my enthusiasm for the product was largely theoretical. Using the product has given me a host of new insight, and I have to ... Read More »

Triple whammy

First of all, I am so flattered by the lovely comments on the birthday post. You really made me feel great. Thank you. But the party’s over and I have three new product “issues” to share with you. First, Britax is recalling a limited number of Marathon car seats manufactured between May 23, 2006 and July 28, 2006. Apparently, the ... Read More »

Daytrippin’ with Maclaren

Today, I spent the day visiting the US headquarters of Maclaren in Norwalk, CT. We were invited for a sneak preview of the 2008 product line, which will be shown at the ABC Show next month in Las Vegas. It was a great opportunity to see the new products away from the hullabaloo of the trade show, and it was ... Read More »

Casting doubts on Consumer Reports

In the week or so that has passed since the Today Show broke the story about the car seat test results to be published in the upcoming issue of Consumer Reports, our little industry has been in something of a tailspin. Car seat manufacturers have rushed to defend their products and their testing processes, while retailers like us have tried ... Read More »

Heavy Duty

Apparently, Cybex is getting into the baby market. Last year, the fitness company introduced a revolutionary new high-back booster seat at this show and won the coveted innovation award. This year, they’ve brought out a fascinating new convertible car seat, and won it again. When we visited, we met JB, the VP of Sales for this division of Cybex, and ... Read More »

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 »
