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 »

Giveaways Day 11 – Bumbleride Indie Twin

When we first opened the store, Bumbleride was part of our stroller mix. We loved the fresh colors and patterns and the reasonable prices. As time went on, our stroller department got crowded, and for one reason or another, the Bumblerides didn’t make the cut. We’ve kept a close eye on the company over the years, always stopping to say ... 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 »

Giveaways Day 4 – My Backyard BBQ Set

Happy 4th of July! We loved this wooden grill when we saw it at Toy Fair this year, and we knew that it would be a must-have for all bbq-loving families. Including mine. It is a very well-constructed toy with a lot of details to really enhance the make believe play. The grill lid is designed so that there’s a ... Read More »

Giveaways Day 1 – Britax Frontier 85

This past March, I got to leave Sheri and the kids for a couple of days to visit Britax at their headquarters in North Carolina. Personally, I love it when our manufacturers’ values align with ours – and I was really impressed to see firsthand how much Britax really strives to make life more convenient for parents. I was inspired ... Read More »

Holiday Giveaways # 2 – Uglydolls

There’s a lot to love about Ugly Dolls, but my favorite thing is their backstory. Two designers in a long distance relationship were trying to keep the flame alive. David Horvath sent Sun-Min Kim letters accented with drawings of a funny little character called “Wage.” As a surprise, Sun-Min transformed Wage into a charismatic, soft fleece toy and sent him ...

Holiday Giveaways Day 1 – Rody Ride On Horse

We get a lot of kids coming through our stores every day, and the toys in our playscapes take a beating. Literally. A toy that might last a lifetime at home will be lucky to survive six months. Rody is one of those toys that can withstand the rigors and rarely (if ever) needs replacing. This iconic inflated horse is ... Read More »

Giveaways are BACK

Welcome to November, the official kick-off month to the holiday season, AKA the season of giving. We’re celebrating by bringing back another 31 Days of (holiday) Giveaways. To preserve our sanity during our busiest time of the year, it will work slightly differently this time around. New giveaways will begin at noon every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday starting today ... Read More »

Great IdeaPaint Giveaway

As anyone who has ever sat in a meeting with me knows, I love whiteboards. I love the way a whiteboard can help organize a conversation, define objectives and lend focus to an outcome. They’re also very entertaining when my kids come to visit – something which may be unremarkable in most other offices, but given that our office is ... Read More »
