Bugaboo goes sporty: Meet the Bugaboo Buffalo

Bugaboo-Buffalo

It’s always a treat to get a sneak preview of a hot new stroller, so when the Bugaboo Buffalo rolled into our office, strapped neatly into a smart-looking travel bag, everyone gathered around to gawk and took their turn giving it a roll around the office suite. If you’ve ever been to our bustling, lime-green office, you know how excellent ... Read More »

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 »

Britax B-Ready Stroller – an in depth review

When Britax called a few months back and asked to schedule a time to come to Boston to show me a new stroller, I have to admit I rolled my eyes. Britax, a brand revered for quality and design in car seats, has been trying unsuccessfully to break in to the stroller category for years. I’ve never seen a stroller ... Read More »

Stokke Xplory 2010 prelaunch

The Stokke Xplory always gets mixed reactions from parents in our stores. The design is unconventional, and the price point is on the high end.

Between the judging for the JPMA Innovation Awards and the main part of the show, we spent a lot of time with the new Baby Jogger City Select.

First Look: Baby Jogger City Select

Here’s a scoop: in advance of the upcoming ABC Kids Show in Las Vegas, we stumbled upon an ad today in an industry magazine that had us scraping our jaws off the floor. Baby Jogger is apparently introducing a new stroller, the Baby Jogger City Select, a hybrid stroller that can accommodate one child or two in a dizzying array ... Read More »

Day 29 – Bugaboo Cameleon

Have you ever wanted something really, really badly? When we first opened Magic Beans, all I wanted was to carry Bugaboo. For a number of reasons, we weren’t able to become an authorized dealer at that time, and the disappointment literally kept me up at night (or was it my newborn?). I had been an admirer of the brand since ... Read More »

Day 20 – Uppa Baby Vista Stroller

We have a saying here at Magic Beans. “You can’t just wake up one morning and decide to design a stroller.” We’re all in favor of parent-entrepreneurs who see an opportunity to improve on a product, or create something entirely new to fill a void, but when it comes to strollers, we’re very wary. Strollers are complicated. Or at least, ... Read More »
