Foogo be doo wop wop

There are a lot of insulated sippy cups out there, but if you’ve ever tried them, you’ve discovered that they don’t actually keep drinks cold. This inadequacy did not escape the experts at Thermos, the folks who live and die by beverage insulation. So they built a better sippy cup. The new Foogo cup from Thermos is leak proof, durable, ...

Quinny is in the house!

Our shipment of Quinny Buzz and Dreami (the matching bassinet) arrived today. We already have a floor sample in the store, so come by and check it out. All four colors are in stock and ready to ship. I know a lot of folks were wondering if these would ever really arrive, but now it looks like we’re in business. Read More »

Recaro: In with the new

When I was in Cologne in September for the Kind + Jugend show, I was struck by the size of the Recaro booth. It was enormous. In a show filled with big, impressive booths, this one was particularly formidable. They had so many different kinds of seats, it was dizzying. But in the US, their line is a fraction of ...

Like clean clothes?

This is one of those products that’s just parent-powered simple genius. If you’ve ever watched a kid eat an ice cream cone or popsicle, you’ve almost certainly cringed as the drips and dribbles traveled along chins, arms, fingers and, ultimately, onto nice, crisp clean clothing. No amount of diligent attention with baby wipes can prevent the mess that inevitably prevails. ... Read More »

Quinny update

I just received a revised availability timeline from Quinny, and since I know a lot of people are watching this, I thought I’d share it right away. The Buzz and Dreami (the bassinet for the Buzz) are on time to arrive in the US on May 10. I expect we’ll have them in our store within a week after that. ... Read More »

GT stands for Good Thinking?

Everyone has been waiting and wondering what’s happening with Phil and Ted’s. At the ABC show in September, they showed a very early concept of a new version of their popular e3 stroller. Last month, they debuted the Sport, an updated version of the e3 that offered some nice improvements, but not a substantial change to the design. Now, at ... Read More »

Twice as warm

OK, yes, the weather is getting warmer and no one wants to think about cold-weather stroller accessories right now, but I thought 7AM Enfant had a pretty nice new product at JPMA. The new Duo is just what it sounds like – a 7AM built for two. It’s not a sleeping bag, it’s just a warm blanket that can be ... Read More »

A Spider even I could love

Normally, I hate anything having to do with Spiders. As ridiculous as it is, I’m totally terrified of them. But the new Spider stroller from Mutsy has enough redeeming qualities that I can look beyond its name. We first saw the Mutsy Spider at the ABC show in Las Vegas. We were very excited about it back then, we were ... Read More »

Strollers for all seasons

At this JPMA show, Maclaren has a few surprises up their sleeve. They’re introducing a line of skincare products, they’ve developed two new stroller models inspired by the seasons of the year, AND people are running around their booth dressed in kilts. It’s all a bit unusual, but that is a good thing for this normally traditional brand. Of note ... Read More »
