Giveaways Day 16 – Britax B-Ready Stroller

I sat down to write today’s blog post about the Britax B-Ready stroller, but because this is such a new item (it just hit our warehouse yesterday) and I had SO much to say, I decided to give it its very own post, aside from the 31 Days of Giveaways. If you want all the details (and I do mean ... Read More »

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. When it came to booster seats we were clueless, like many parents. At that point there was no booster seat law in Massachusetts, and people just didn’t ... Read More »

Giveaways Day 14 – Mountain Buggy Terrain

It’s no secret the BOB Revolution has totally dominated the sport stroller category for a number of years. So when Mountain Buggy showed off the Terrain at the ABC show last fall, our first question was “Why this and not that?” As it turns out, the Mountain Buggy Terrain addresses some deficiencies that exist in pretty much every other running ...

Giveaways Day 12 – Bloom Alma Crib

The first time I saw the Bloom Alma Crib, I was ushered inside a curtained room at the ABC show in Las Vegas by Simon May, the owner of Bloom. He promised to show me something that would amaze me – and he did. Although it was barely more than a prototype, the Alma crib was impressive. Here was a ... Read More »

Today’s giveaway is a prize package – a trio of fabulous products from Baby Bjorn that includes the Baby Bjorn Travel Crib Light, the Baby Bjorn Babysitter Balance, and the brand new Baby Bjorn Comfort Carrier. Over the years, I’ve sung the praises of all three of these products, and with the exception of the Comfort Carrier, these items have ... Read More »

Giveaways Day 8 – Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller

With a reversible seat and a reversible handlebar, the Cameleon can adapt to virtually any environment, and with the ... Read More »

Giveaways Day 6 – Swinxs Game Console

When I first met the Swinxs at Toy Fair in 2008, I was totally blown away. It was such a fresh concept – an interactive gaming console with no video component that aimed to engage kids physically and socially. It took a couple of years, but this Dutch product is finally available here in the US, and we are delighted ... Read More »

Giveaways Day 5 – Ergo Baby Carrier

I just returned from watching a fireworks display on Cape Cod. As we stretched out on the grass and watched the spectacular show, I noticed a man sitting a few yards in front of us, wearing a baby in an Ergo carrier. The explosions were loud, the music was boisterous and the crowd was enthusiastic. But his baby slept on, ... Read More »
