Wipe out: Wicked smart sunscreens

Slathering sunscreen on my squirming children is one of my least favorite rites of summer. Fortunately, this year there are some fantastic new products that have parents everywhere breathing sighs of relief. First, if you’ve watched any TV lately, you’ve probably seen ads for all three of the new continuous spray sunscreen brands. Neutrogena, Banana Boat and Coppertone have all ... Read More »

We’re hooked!

This is one of the most oft-requested products we’ve never been able to find. Parents are dying to find a way to hook bags onto their strollers. On a Maclaren, or other two-handled model, it’s easy. But on any stroller with a single bar, it’s impossible. There are a couple of options out there, but nothing that seemed heavy-duty enough ... Read More »

Orbit almost landing…

We had a chance to check in with our friends at Orbit Baby today and play with the actual production samples of the Orbit Infant System. All I can say is it’s really going to be worth the wait. We’re told that we should have stock to sell by the end of June or first week of July. The final ... Read More »

Fit to be a parent

Finding time for exercise is particularly challenging for busy parents. There’s a big trend towards bringing along baby, with stroller exercise classes sprouting up all over the country. So I was psyched when I saw the new Strollometer, a very cool device that attaches to your stroller and tracks a variety of fitness-related data. Using magnets and wireless transmissions, it ...

Tripp Trappin’ over the ocean

Until now, the beloved Stokke Kinderzeat has endured a split personality disorder. In the United States, it is known as the Kinderzeat, but in practically every other country on Earth, it is the Tripp Trapp chair. Why did the US market require new nomenclature? I’m not sure what the logic was at the time, but in the interest of consistency, ... Read More »

Graco thinks big

The new SafeSeat from Graco has arrived, and although it’s been a very quiet product launch, this is one of the most important new arrivals of 2006. Until now, parents have generally accepted that they will need a minimum of three car seats to get from infancy through childhood. Even under the new standards, infant car seats can accommodate babies ... Read More »

It’s smart, but is it a buggy?

Check out the new Smart Buggy from Phil and Ted’s, and you’ll discover a sort of cross between a stroller and hand truck. We spent a good amount of time puzzling over one on Friday, and IMHO this is a very innovative concept, but it may still need to work out some kinks before it’s a true success. The good: ...

Geuther ’round

In this brave new world of design-conscious parents, European wooden high chairs have become a ubiquitous presence. Whether it’s the clean zigzag of the Stokke Kinderzeat or the elegant curves of the Svan chair, these attractive seats offer the added appeal of longevity. Both will adjust to accommodate children or adults, using a simple allen wrench to move the seat ... Read More »

Swaddle SO easy

If you’ve had a baby and stayed in a hospital, chances are you’ve marveled at the nurses’ aptitude for swaddling. Babies usually spend the first days of their lives wrapped up tight, courtesy of the nurses. Then, you get home and despite having paid attention to frequent demonstrations (in the midst of post-partum haziness), you discover that swaddling is quite ... Read More »

Rock Star Baby

I want to open with a disclaimer. We do not sell the bugaboo strollers. Many people assume that we choose not to carry them because we don’t like them. This is not true. At this time, there are apparently too many other retailers in our area. We hope to someday offer this line, but in the meantime we remain admirers ... Read More »
