Rest, relaxation and gestation

Forgive me for what is hopefully the last major interruption in my blogging schedule for a long time. We just got back from a wonderful family vacation in Costa Rica, where we got to spend lots of time in the sunshine with our two girls. It was really a nice break, and much needed for all of us, after a ... Read More »

HiLo and behold!

You may recall that we found this clever new high chair at the ICFF show in the Spring. We were wowed by the simple genius of the concept, and the graceful execution. We are delighted that the chair is now in stock. Basically, the HiLo chair has two seats, one designed for babies (Hi) and one designed for children (Lo). ... Read More »

Maclaren activates Lifetime Warranty today

Starting today, customers who purchase 2008 Maclaren strollers will be eligible to upgrade their basic warranty to a Sovereign Lifetime Warranty by simply registering their strollers online within 45 days of purchase.

The new Targo looks a lot like several other hybrid style strollers on the market, but it has a couple of innovative features. I love the height ... Read More »

When Orbit Baby was launched, they promised to reinvent the travel system from top to bottom, and they also promised to extend the concept of the travel system beyond the common boundaries of the infant car seat. With the Orbit Infant System, they effectively fulfilled promise #1. The system has been a great success, with rave reviews from parents and ... Read More »

Now feeding…

Recent arrivals into our warehouse include the Skip Hop Palette Plate, some whimsical new melamine dish sets also from Skip Hop, and the new line of feeding products from Boon, including my very favorite, the ingenious Squirt, with a squeezable bulb that dispenses baby food directly onto the spoon. In my imagination (and based at least somewhat on prior experience), ... Read More »

Nilo gets a face lift

Nilo tables have long been admired by parents for their sturdy, solid wood construction, and the wide expanse of play space, perfect for wooden trains, blocks, games, Lego, craft activities or anything else a kid could dream up. But for all the great functionality, the Nilo table isn’t exactly a sexy piece of furniture. The angular profile seems much better ... Read More »
