After the ABC Kids Expo: Taking Ergo in a new direction

When we first encountered Ergobaby, back in 2004, Sheri described the company as “so small… I placed my first order with the founder’s dad.” Not anymore! Ergo is now a baby industry giant, and the luxuriously-sized and well-appointed booth that they shared with Orbit Baby at the ABC show was both a demonstration and a celebration of their success. Ergobaby ... Read More »

Our inside scoop on the ABC Expo: Clek goes Tokidoki!

Combining sugary-sweet cuteness and a bit of humorous edge, Tokidoki is a larger-than-life design brand with a huge following. Their “criminally cute” designs have appeared on everything from apparel to shoes – so why not car seats and booster seats? The collaboration between Tokidoki and Clek is “a natural way to expand upon our design DNA,” according to Chris Lumley, ... Read More »

Our inside scoop on the ABC Expo: What’s new from Nuna?

We’ve only known about Nuna for a year, since we first encountered them at the 2012 ABC Kids Expo, but we already have great expectations: this European company is so cool! The Leaf Baby Lounger, in particular, made a big splash at last year’s show – not only is it unusual and stylish in appearance, and not only does it ... Read More »

Drool spotlight: Nuna products beyond be-“Leaf”

European companies typically launch into the American baby gear market with one signature product that’s visually striking and functionally unique. The most obvious example is the Bugaboo Frog, which brought on the era of the luxury stroller, but we could also point to the Beaba Babycook, or the striking Babyhome Emotion Stroller, or the signature high chairs from Stokke and ...

Aden + Anais + The Laundress = clean + fresh + happy

I discovered The Laundress several years ago while hunting for an all-natural laundry detergent I could use for hand-washing, too. I tried it and I was hooked. Their laundry detergents are wonderful: they are formulated to be gentle on fabrics, and take no prisoners when it comes to dirt. They are free of toxins, biodegradable, and scented with natural essential ... Read More »

Nuna crosses the pond

In April of 2010, Eli and I were very lucky to be invited to Amsterdam to visit the Bugaboo headquarters and get a sneak peek at the Donkey stroller. While we were there, we took the opportunity to visit an amazing, enormous baby store, Kid Factory, where I got my first look at Nuna. It wasn’t a brand I’d never ... Read More »

Bugaboo Cameleon3 Sahara Special Edition

When I first saw a picture of the Bugaboo Cameleon3 Sahara stroller, I wasn’t really sure what to make of it. It looked really nice, but was the lovely, tranquil color palette going to justify the special edition price point? It wasn’t until I saw it in person at The ABC Kids Expo earlier this month that I really understood ... Read More »
