Day 11 – Hotsling, Aden + Anais Wraps, & Boppy

For today’s giveaway, we put together three of my all-time favorite products for new babies: a Hotsling, a package of Aiden + Anais blankets, and a Boppy pillow. My expertise with slings goes way back to my first daughter, when my first sling was puffy blue cotton number festooned with bright yellow moons. There was so much fabric, it took ... Read More »

Radian car seat proves its metal

Last week, a parking garage in Atlanta partially collapsed, destroying nearly 40 of the 1600 cars parked in the garage. One of these cars belonged to Sarah Maglione, a mom from Atlanta. Her SUV was parked on the second level of the garage, with her Radian 65 car seat installed in the back passenger seat. When they pulled her car ... Read More »

Day 9 – The Learning Tower

When you’re 3 feet tall, the world can seem like a pretty big place. The Learning Tower brings kids into the action, so they can reach the countertops and interact with adults at eye-level. Ideal for fostering a love of cooking from a very early age, The Learning Tower is typically billed as a sturdy kitchen step-stool. But that understates ... Read More »

Day 8 – Naturepedic No-Compromise Organic Crib Mattress

Organic mattresses are the newest trend for eco-conscious, natural-minded parents. And this is great news, since mattresses are notorious for harboring all kinds of icky chemicals. But many of the die-hard organic mattresses eschew all non-organic substances, leaving them one spectacular diaper blow-out away from permanent damage. Naturepedic takes a more practical approach in their No-Compromise crib mattress. The insides ... Read More »

Day 6 – Radian XT Car Seat

The first time I saw a Radian car seat demonstration was in the parking lot behind our store in Brookline. Russ Berger, one of the owners of Sunshine Kids had come to show it to us, way back in 2005. It was a cold and drizzly day, and if I’m being completely honest, I wasn’t overly enthusiastic. I thought the ... Read More »

Day 3 – Baby Jogger City Mini Single

I’ll never forget the first time I laid eyes on the Baby Jogger City Mini stroller at the end of an exhausting ABC show in Las Vegas. I knew right away and without question that it was a slam dunk. Since that day, I’ve tried many times to channel the feeling of total confidence I felt looking at that product, ... Read More »

Day 2 – Beaba Babycook

The new Beaba Babycook has been on my blog to-do list for months, literally. But we haven’t been able to keep it in stock long enough to write about it. Now, finally, supply is catching up with demand. Well, almost. But today, you can win one for free. The Babycook is our Day 2 Giveaway for our 31 Days of ... Read More »

Day 1 – Chicco Keyfit 30

To kick off our 31 Days of Giveaways, we wanted something really special. The Chicco Keyfit 30 car seat has an interesting history with Magic Beans. The first time we ever saw a demonstration of that seat, we were amazed. The engineering of the base is ingenious, and it is designed to be nearly foolproof to install. But in spite ... Read More »

Is that a tray for a Stokke Tripp Trapp??

Why yes, it is. For about as long as the Stokke Tripp Trapp chair has been in existence, American parents have been begging for a tray. Stokke has resisted, saying that the whole point of a Tripp Trapp is to bring children right up to the table, and adding tray would have the opposite effect. So we have dodged, swept, ...

Maclaren has acquired Netto

Daddytypes broke this story on Saturday, but we just had confirmation earlier this evening via an email from David Netto. Here’s an excerpt: In a deal which I had long hoped to do, Netto has been bought by Maclaren. We finalized the arrangements on Friday. I have the utmost respect for Maclaren and its remarkable owners and personnel, and the ... Read More »
