A matter of opinion

The past few weeks have been somewhat chaotic. Late nights, early mornings, lots of take-out and constant babysitting were all necessary to give us the time we needed to get everything done. Accordingly, we haven’t seen too much of our kids lately. To their credit, they’ve handled it like champs, extending a degree of understanding and forgiveness that is heartbreakingly ... Read More »

Hip to be square

Dado Cubes have been an instant hit – and why not? They’re a colorful, open-ended construction toy that are appealing to a wide age range. All that, plus they’re designed and made in the USA. Now fans of the Dado Cubes will be pleased to hear about the newest member of the Dado family – Dado Squares. Each set includes ... Read More »

Recaro Signo now stateside

Just heard today that the Recaro Signo car seats have finally arrived in the USA. Shipments to retailers have already begun, and I will let you know as soon as they land in our warehouse. It’s been a long wait, but hopefully worth it. Read More »

Phil & Teds new strollers delayed

I just heard that the release of the new lineup of Phil & Teds “in-line” strollers has been delayed. The latest word is that they are making some changes based on feedback from the ABC show and Cologne, and the buggies will now be available in mid- to late-January. I’m told the folks at Regal-Lager are “comfortable” with this new ... Read More »

Wellesley is open!

Our Wellesley location opened its doors yesterday afternoon, just in time for our Grand Opening Weekend celebration. Looking back, I can’t believe we pulled it off. Two new stores in less than two weeks. But the new stores look great, and hopefully we’ll catch up on sleep during Thanksgiving. I’ll be at the Hingham store on Sunday, so if you’re ... Read More »

Demanding supply

Two of my favorite items for the fourth quarter are having serious availability issues, and it’s a bummer. The Svan Miniature Table and Chairs set isn’t going to be available again until 2008 because of an issue with their last shipment. I haven’t heard the whole story yet, but I do know that they’re pretty much impossible to find at ... Read More »

Grand Opening Weekend is coming up

We’re celebrating our Grand Opening Weekend in all three stores next weekend, and every single expectant or new parent in the entire New England region should know about this. Why? Because in addition to promising a fun time, we are giving away thousands and thousands of dollars worth of gear. Our vendors are almost as excited as we are about ... Read More »

Gotten well

I’ve always considered myself lucky to live so close to Children’s Hospital of Boston. It’s a world-renowned facility and it’s practically walking distance from my house. Until this past summer, I’d never needed to take advantage of our proximity, but then my older daughter developed a strange rash at camp one day. Erring on the side of caution, we brought ...

Aqua Dots Recall

Isn’t this getting to be ridiculous already? Today, the CPSC announced a recall of the brand new Aqua Dots product line from SpinMaster. These little beads were designed to be a sort of three dimensional alternative to the popular classic Hama Beads (those little tubular beads that fuse together when you iron them). The Aqua Dots are completely spherical, and ... Read More »
