Day 25: BOB Revolution SE 2011


Strollers, like people, have characters to them. The name BOB is an abbreviation for “Beast Of Burden,” and while there are now many variations on the original BOB stroller, they all are designed to be reliable helpers and friends to the family. Today’s giveaway, the BOB Revolution SE 2011, is a big favorite because of its adaptable functions. It’s a ... Read More »

Day 11: Baby Jogger Pod


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 9: Quinny Zapp Xtra & Travel Bag


There’s something about the letter “z” that makes a word dynamic and quirky. Like “Zapp,” a thoroughly appropriate name for the Quinny stroller we’re giving away today. This 19-pound stroller is made to zoom and zigzag around the city with a minimum of fuss: reviewers praise its ability to negotiate small spaces, and it’s amazingly easy to push. Whether you ...

Day 6: UPPAbaby Vista Stroller


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 1: Bugaboo Bee


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 ...

Orbit in living color

When I walked by the Orbit booth at the recent ABC Spring Conference in Ft. Worth, I didn’t even recognize it. Why? The colors threw me, I’ll admit. Orbit Baby has always had a very conservative palette — until now. The new Color Packs will be an optional accessory for the Orbit Stroller G2. They’ll come in nine fruity colors, ... Read More »

MBTA in Boston considering ban on (unfolded) strollers

Update: It’s no surprise that the moms and dads of Boston would go up in arms over this. The MBTA is now saying they’ll try some other tactics for dealing with this issue. The Boston Globe reported yesterday that the information that came out around this was “vague”, “open-ended” and “imprecise” and the MBTA was not actually considering such a ... Read More »
