Vindication for Orbit Baby – almost

NHTSA has concluded its independent review of the Orbit Baby Infant Car Seat, brought on by the Consumer Reports “Do Not Buy” rating that was released at the end of August. Their findings confirm that the Orbit Infant Car Seat is perfectly safe. If you aren’t up to date on this story, read this first. In order to fully investigate ... Read More »

Radian gets Superlatch

Sunshine Kids has just shipped the first updated Radian car seat models for 2010. The biggest change is the incorporation of Superlatch, a new, more robust LATCH connector that enables parents to use LATCH even after the child is over 48 pounds (the current weight limit on LATCH for all other car seats). The new models are called the Radian ... Read More »

Puj Tub reinvents the infant bathtub

This is what happens when product designers become parents: very creative problem solving. The Puj Tub (pronounced “pudge”) is the coolest new baby product I’ve seen in a long time. Bathing infants in a sink is always a challenge, but not anymore, thanks to this clever foam and magnet concoction. Snap it together and it forms a supportive, origami-esque basin ... Read More »

Orbit goes G2

“Concept strollers” were all the rage at the ABC Show, with lots of manufacturers showing off interesting ideas that may or may not come to the market. But while “concept” is the label Orbit Baby is applying to their new G2 product line, I got the impression it’s more a question of “when” than “if.” The G2 offers some significant ... Read More »

Baby Jogger City Select a winner

Between the judging for the JPMA Innovation Awards and the main part of the show, we spent a lot of time with the new Baby Jogger City Select. The stroller did win the coveted prize, and it was the talk of the show. I know many of you are curious to see and hear more about it, so here’s my ... Read More »

Grass by Boon

Count on those imaginative designers at Boon to come up with this clever idea for a countertop drying rack. The blades of grass are both flexible and strong, and as bottles dry, the water drains into the removable tray below. Grass is dishwasher safe and a completely useful conversation starter for any family kitchen. f2m6iqecdj Read More »

Bugaboo makes the grade with Bee Plus

At an exclusive cocktail party last night, Bugaboo offered a sneak peek at the new and improved Bugaboo Bee Plus, slated for release in Spring 2010. The Bugaboo Bee has slowly become one of my favorite strollers, but it is not without its challenges. The learning curve for turning the seat can be a bit high, but the stellar handling ...

Bugaboo partners with (RED)

Earlier this summer, our account manager at Bugaboo asked to come to Boston to meet with us to deliver some exciting news in person. Must be a new stroller, we guessed. A double? We were hopeful – even more so when we had to sign a non-disclosure agreement before the meeting started – but she had something else to discuss. ... Read More »

Orbit gets thumbs-up from NHTSA

We just received a letter from Joseph Hei, CEO and Co-founder of Orbit Baby. After last week’s debacle with Consumer Reports, Orbit went straight to the NHTSA and asked them to test the seat. Small wonder, it passed with flying colors. Consumer Reports continued to defend their testing, but public opinion online has been widespread in favor of Orbit Baby ... Read More »
