Day 15: Mountain Buggy Duet

mountain-buggy-duet-stroller

I’m pretty sure that, according to the rules of physics, the Mountain Buggy Duet shouldn’t even exist. How is it even possible that they managed to shave 4 inches off the standard side-by-side double stroller width? I don’t know how they did it, but what’s important is that it’s done. And the Mountain Buggy Duet, launching this month, should make ... Read More »

Day 14: Bloom Fresco Loft High Chair

Black Fresco Loft High Chair

The Bloom Fresco Loft High Chair is the Ferrari of feeding time. From the sleek curves to the glossy colors, this is one piece of baby gear that’s a legitimate design accent. But it’s not just beauty that makes the Fresco compelling. It’s made to meet the needs of modern parents, and it’s got some very useful features to prove ... Read More »

Day 12: 4moms Mamaroo

4moms-mamaroo-silver-MROO-side-f

The mamaRoo, created by 4moms, uses robotic technology to soothe your baby: it recreates the motions that moms use to soothe their babies, along with a few other motion modes (the five modes are Car Ride, Kangaroo, Tree Swing, Rock-a-Bye, and Ocean). Babies love motion in part because it stimulates their vestibular system, in part because it mimics the constant ... Read More »

Day 11: Baby Jogger Pod

baby-jogger-pod-with-stroller-kit-orange

Flexibility. As parents, we just can’t get enough of it. Our kids? Not particularly flexible — at least, not when we need them to be. Our schedule, our bosses, our childcare, our spouses, our neighbors — well, some of us are luckier than others. Anytime we can find a little flexibility here and there, there’s this great sense of relief ... Read More »

Day 6: UPPAbaby Vista Stroller

uppababy-vista-slate

To introduce today’s giveaway, we thought we’d go back to last year and revisit the Berndt family. Why? Well, they won the UPPAbaby Vista stroller during the 2010 31 Days of Giveaways.   Winning this prize couldn’t have come at a better time for Luke and Carolyn Berndt, who were pushing their 6-month-old baby a mile each way to daycare ...

Day 5: Boon Flair High Chair

If we didn’t know how practical and functional the Boon Flair High Chair is, we would still be ooohing and aaahing over its appearance. So shiny, so modern, and look at those yummy colors! But like any product from Boon Inc., the Flair combines delightful form with down-to-earth function. The unusual, graceful pedestal contains a pneumatic lift that makes adjusting ... Read More »

Day 4: Recaro ProRIDE Convertible Car Seat

Just how comfortable is a Recaro car seat? They have a fine worldwide reputation for safety and comfort, it’s true, and the plushy fabric on the Recaro ProRIDE Convertible Car Seat feels wonderful. The seat’s CoolMesh Air Ventilation insert keeps things breezy on hot days, and of course, we all feel more comfortable knowing that the baby is safe: the ... Read More »

Day 3: Perfect Picnic Pair

skip-hop-bento-diaper-bag-goldenrod-orange-293102-f

Growing up in New York City, picnics were a rare event. But when they happened, oh my goodness. Once a year, Wave Hill, a local public garden, would allow picnicking, weather permitting. On the years when the weather permitted, my mom would cook up a storm. We’d watch the sun set over the Hudson River and feast on salads, sandwiches ... Read More »

Day 1: Bugaboo Bee

bugaboo-bee-tangerine-tn

Assembling the 31 Days of Giveaways has always been a fun process. But my favorite ritual each year is organizing the schedule. The big whiteboard in my office is converted into a giant calendar of  July, and we sit around for a few hours trying to get all of the amazing prizes assigned to a date. The hardest part? The ...

Confessions of a Toy Copywriter – and a Cool Giveaway

For almost a year now, I’ve had a bit of an obsession. Can I trust you with my secret? OK, I love Sticky Mosaics by Orb Factory. There, I said it. As a writer for Magic Beans, I get to play with all the toys I want. I stack blocks, deal cards, enjoy craft projects, play with teeny animal figurines, ... Read More »
