UPPAbaby Mesa Infant Car Seat available for pre-order now!

UPPAbaby knows how to make a splash. For a couple of months, buzz has been building around a new product launch planned for the ABC Kids Expo. But instead of just debuting the product at the show itself, UPPAbaby instead planned a party for the first night of the show. Tonight, in front of a packed crowd, they unveiled their ...

Orbit Baby Double Helix is almost here

I remember the first time I met the Orbit Baby team, in Orlando in 2005, and they showed me a sketch of how their brand new, totally innovative travel system could someday be extended to a double stroller. It was inspiring to imagine a system that was so modular and so flexible. And finally, in the year 2012, that sketch ... Read More »

JPMA Innovation Awards 2011

Eli and I were absolutely honored and delighted to serve on the judging panel for the JPMA Innovation Awards again this year. It’s no secret I’m something of a baby gear geek, so I’d jump at any opportunity to spend an afternoon testing out the most interesting new products coming to market. We looked at over 60 products on Thursday. ... Read More »

Madpax Backpacks: Turtles, Dinosaurs, Koopas, and Kindergarten

We all know that we’re supposed to root for the good guy in the movies, but some bad guys are just irresistible. Like Darth Vader, or Cruella De Vil, or the Wicked Witch of the West, sometimes bad guys just steal the show. Let’s face it: the mild-mannered Mario Brothers suffer in comparison to their nemesis, the much cooler-looking Bowser, ... Read More »

The Nook Pebble Lite Is Here!

The original Nook Pebble crib mattress is an obvious object of product lust: it’s unique-looking, and it uses nano-level waterproofing to keep moisture out – how cool is that? Plus, it’s engineered for optimal breathing while babies sleep, and it’s completely chemical-free. You may have experienced a bit of sticker-shock when you first spotted the Nook Pebble – this kind ... Read More »

Giveaways Day 30 – Taga Bike and Stroller

I haven't done a blog post about the Taga Bike & Stroller yet, mostly because I've been waiting until we actually had some to sell. Every shipment has sold out before it even came in. It's a good problem to have. I first heard about the Taga in July of 2008, right before they showed their product for the first ... Read More »

Bug off

This is the time of year when parents start to get nervous about mosquitoes. The media starts talking about scary, mosquito-borne illnesses, and suddenly every time you hear that high-pitched whine in your ear, it’s a life-or-death mission to find and eviscerate the perpetrator. Despite the hype, most mosquito bites are harmless. But they’re itchy and annoying no matter what, ... Read More »

Mini-ABC Wrap Up

Last week, I made a quick trip to Louisville, KY to take a look at the ABC Kids Spring Conference. This is the second year that ABC, who produces the massive juvenile industry show each Fall, has mounted this event. It’s a small show, especially compared to the behemoth in Las Vegas, but it’s only for specialty retailers who have ... Read More »

Glass, you’ve never looked better

I’m not a mother. But as the writer for Magic Beans, it’s my job to think like one. And despite not having kids, there are several products we sell that I absolutely love. My new favorite? The Glass Beverage Bottle from Lifefactory. This adult bottle is made by the same people who brought us the popular Babylife Weego, a wonderful ... Read More »

A stroller hang-up

If storage space is tight, finding a place to keep your stroller can be frustrating. Metrotots has come to the rescue with the StrollAway, a new hook which hangs on the back of a door and keeps your folded stroller aloft and out of the way. What’s great is the sturdy, forked design of the hook, which can accommodate a ... Read More »
