Baby Sitter Redux

Just weeks after my hubby declared our unwavering adoration for the Baby Bjorn Baby Sitter 1-2-3, they went and redesigned it. The overhaul includes a name change – the seat will now be called the Babysitter Balance. Structurally, the changes are (thankfully) minimal. The basic design of the seat hasn’t changed. But they have replaced the mechanism that controls the ... Read More »

Sneak Peek at the Phil & Teds Dash

Today we had a visit from a couple of representatives from Regal-Lager, the US distributor of Phil & Teds, as well as the new US representative for Phil & Teds, who works directly for the New Zealand outfit. We were pleased as punch when they told us they were bringing us a Dash to play with. As it turns out, ... Read More »

Go Gaga Slide Bag Makes a Splash

The diaper bag I liked so much at the ABC show in Las Vegas has landed in our stores, and it’s getting a very warm reception. The Slide Bag is a messenger-style diaper bag that offers parents a variety of innovative features to make this one of the most flexible, functional (and almost certainly the most comfortable) diaper bags on ...

ubi changes everything

This easily the most brilliant thing I saw during my first day of the show, and I’ll be really surprised if I see something that trumps it over the next three days. The ubi is billed as a modern changing table, but it’s more than that. It’s really a design innovation that will set parents free from the concept of ... Read More »

Boon offers a sneak peek

We’re still just about 10 days away from the ABC show, but the Boon website is already showing off a panoply of new products. There’s a whole new layette line, a range of feeding accessories and… jewelry? I’m in love with the beautiful sterling silver bracelet designs – modern, whimsical and alternately geometric or undulating pieces that are perfectly sized ... Read More »

Half pipes with half pints?

I was at the ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) yesterday in NYC. As always, it’s such a cool show. But there was a prototype on display that was just radical. The Roller Buggy, designed by Austrian Valentin Vodev, is part skateboard, part stroller. Just pull out the board from under the chassis and it becomes a scooter.  Fun for parents, ... Read More »

Quinny Countdown

Because inquiring minds want to know… We’ve gotten some projected ship dates from Dorel for Quinny and Maxi Cosi. From what we’re hearing, the Quinny Buzz will arrive in May, the Maxi Cosi car seats will arrive in mid-June and the Quinny Zapp should be here in July. Read More »

Itzbeen a good idea

The new Itzbeen baby timer has arrived. This clever little device was invented by Greg Sheldon, an engineer turned stay-at-home dad who found that he and his wife were constantly struggling to remember how much time had elapsed between feedings, diaper changes, naps, medication doses, etc. So he created a computer program to track all of these mundane but essential ...

It’s Raining It’s Pouring.

Here’s hoping everyone had a wonderful holiday season! For my family here in Jerusalem, Chanukah was celebrated in a city glowing with candles. Menorahs were kindled everywhere. Inside and outside, through windows and in courtyards, the nights were alight. And as the eighth-day of light came to a close, and as the last candle burned out, that’s when “they” came. ...

To Market, To Market

You won’t find many strollers in the open markets on busy days. The throngs of people keep the majority away. The indignant looks tossed toward buggy lugging mothers (the nerve, taking up precious extra space) leave only the strong of heart or the petite of stroller. We jump in. The Micralite, soundly maneuvered by yours truly, braves the throngs and ... Read More »
