Funny Faces

When the Ty Girlz first made their debut I mentioned that I’d felt conflicted about them. The racy outfits and Bratz-like faces were a bit off-putting to parents looking for wholesome toys. I guess I wasn’t alone. Ty has now taken a step back and made some modifications to the Girlz. The newer releases have more modest wardrobes, and all ... Read More »

Magic Beans Hingham is Open

This morning, we opened the doors to our new store in Hingham. It was pouring rain, but nothing could possibly dampen the excitement around here. The process of designing and building a new store has been in the works for more than a year, and it’s hard to find the words to really express how I’m feeling. Exhausted is the ... Read More »

Mini is in, so I hear.

A little birdie told me that the Baby Jogger City Minis have been spotted in our warehouse. These were one of my favorite finds at the ABC Show, with a winning combination of compact and uncompromising. The fold is outstanding, like all the City Series models. It’s just ridiculously easy. The footprint is nice – it’s small but it doesn’t ... Read More »

Bigger Mountain Range

Today, Sycamore Kids announced a new universal infant car seat clip for the Mountain Buggy Urban Single that will offer the broadest compatibility of almost any stroller on the market, with seven different seats accommodated. Once this new adapter is released, parents will have their choice of the following seats: Maxi-Cosi Mico Britax Companion Combi (not sure if it’s the ... Read More »

Skip Hop goes deluxe

The new versions of the popular Skip Hop diaper bags have just arrived. By way of a reminder, here’s what has changed (from my Skip Hop recap at the ABC show): The Duo and Dash are both getting some upgrades, significant enough to earn them both the subtitle “Deluxe Edition.” Magnetic closures and PVC-free changing pads are two of the ...

Dining Sets Reviewed

Babble.com just posted a review of baby dining sets today, and the Baby Bjorn plate set we submitted received an honorable mention. I think the author did a very nice job rounding up the best of what’s on the market. The only thing notably missing is the new Skip Hop Palette Plate, which I really liked at the ABC Show, ...

Triple whammy

First of all, I am so flattered by the lovely comments on the birthday post. You really made me feel great. Thank you. But the party’s over and I have three new product “issues” to share with you. First, Britax is recalling a limited number of Marathon car seats manufactured between May 23, 2006 and July 28, 2006. Apparently, the ... Read More »

Blogerific Birthday #2

Man, time flies when you’re having fun. Today marks two years since my very first post on Spillingthebeans. What started as a small side project has become a big part of my life, and something tells me we’re still just getting started. “A website is a very hungry pony,” my first boss warned me back in 1999. He was right, ... Read More »

Sock it to ’em

Don’t even talk to me about stretch marks. You might think you had it bad, but let me assure you, mine were worse. I won’t go into details, but trust me. So this is a product that is, at least to me, particularly genius. The Belly Sock is basically exactly what it sounds like – a big sock for your ... Read More »
