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 »

Recognize that silhouette?

I breastfed both of my girls exclusively, and neither of them would ever take a bottle. It wasn’t for lack of trying, though. I always wondered if I might have had better luck with something that was shaped more convincingly like the original source. I had seen the Breastbottle Nurser in catalogs, but I was skeptical so I never gave ... Read More »

Click goes Clek

Every year, the JPMA show holds a competition for Innovation Awards. These prestigious prizes are given to products in ten categories. This year, the car seat award went to the new Olli booster seat from Clek. This backless booster offers a rigid latch attachment system that anchors the seat into the car as an added measure of protection (you still ... Read More »

Britax introduces Diplomat seat

Today Britax introduced a new car seat, the Diplomat, a smaller version of the Boulevard. Just as the Boulevard has similar proportions to the Marathon, but includes side impact prodection, the Diplomat is similar in size to the Roundabout, and includes a scaled-down version of the side-impact protection cushion. My question is, would you buy the Diplomat instead of the ... Read More »

To bee or not to bee?

This is the question that Bugaboo enthusiasts will be asking themselves soon. Today, Bugaboo unveiled their most compact Bugaboo stroller, the Bee. Like the other Bugaboo models, the Bee has a nice suspension system, and the seat can turn to face towards or away from the pusher. Unlike its siblings, the Bee is not a “hybrid” stroller, as all four ... Read More »
