Giveaways Day 5 – Ergo Baby Carrier

I just returned from watching a fireworks display on Cape Cod. As we stretched out on the grass and watched the spectacular show, I noticed a man sitting a few yards in front of us, wearing a baby in an Ergo carrier. The explosions were loud, the music was boisterous and the crowd was enthusiastic. But his baby slept on, ... Read More »

Giveaways Day 2 – Maclaren Quest Zodiac

Maclaren is known for their quirky special edition strollers, many designed by some of the hottest names in fashion. But for 2010, one of these limited edition strollers is the Zodiac Quest – it’s not designed by anyone you’ve ever seen on E! but it’s a really fun idea and a sweet ride too. The seat fabric is a night ... Read More »

Giveaways Day 1 – Britax Frontier 85

This past March, I got to leave Sheri and the kids for a couple of days to visit Britax at their headquarters in North Carolina. Personally, I love it when our manufacturers’ values align with ours – and I was really impressed to see firsthand how much Britax really strives to make life more convenient for parents. I was inspired ... Read More »

Pebble Mattress leaves no stone unturned

I get to see a lot of interesting product concepts in this job. But the new Pebble Mattress from Nook Sleep Systems completely stopped me in my tracks. It isn’t so much a mattress as a total reimagining of the infant sleep environment. Aesthetically, it is stunning. The asymmetry of the pebble shapes and the vivid colors of the mattresses ...

Baby Bjorn debuts new Comfort Carrier

8 years ago my daughter was a newborn and the Baby Bjorn was the “It” baby carrier, a staple on just about every baby registry (mine included). I used it and I liked it, but I wished for more support, and in warm weather, both my daughter and I would sweat bullets. My feedback wasn’t unique, and over the past ... Read More »

10 Best iPhone Apps for Babies

Exclusive offer today from Magic Beans! Email to claim yours. Act now! Yes, I know. I have a whole store filled with toys, so why is my toddler playing with my iPhone? It’s worse than that. When I upgraded last year to the new iPhone 3Gs, my son actually inherited a (deactivated) iPhone of his own. But that thing ... Read More »

Stokke Xplory 2010 prelaunch

The Stokke Xplory always gets mixed reactions from parents in our stores. The design is unconventional, and the price point is on the high end. No stroller is going to appeal to everyone, but I’ve always thought that the Xplory gets overlooked a little too often. When Zev was born, I got one as a gift from my friends at ... Read More »

Peg Perego Tatamia High Chair

We’ve got a reputation here for being pretty picky about baby gear, and high chairs are no exception to the rule. For a new high chair to make it into our stores, it needs to be innovative. It’s been a few years since we had a Peg Perego high chair in the mix. When last we saw the Prima Pappa, ... Read More »

The Bugaboo you don’t know

Eli and I recently spent two days in Amsterdam, where we had the privilege of visiting the Bugaboo headquarters. The purpose of the meeting was to see some new products and lend our feedback. And while I wish I could talk about that, I signed a non-disclosure agreement, and violating it would be a heck of a way to repay ... Read More »
