Giveaways Day 15 – Clek Oobr Booster Seat

When we first opened Magic Beans 6 years ago we had a 2 year old and an infant and the bulk of our expertise was in the realm of baby and toddler products.

Recaro: In with the new

When I was in Cologne in September for the Kind + Jugend show, I was struck by the size of the Recaro booth. It was enormous.
