One car seat to go…

The past ten days have left my family a bit travel weary. We’ve been to Chicago, New York and now today, back to Boston. My sister-in-law got married last night, and we’ve been celebrating with her and getting my girls ready for their supporting roles as flower girls (they were superb – more on that later). After the debacle with ... Read More »

HiLo High Chair in action

Check out this video I captured of the new HiLo high chair from Age, due to arrive on the market some time next year. This innovative chair actually has two seats, one for younger babies and one for older children. And, welll… I could try to explain it but just watch the video. A picture is worth a thousand words ... Read More »

Half pipes with half pints?

I was at the ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) yesterday in NYC. As always, it’s such a cool show. But there was a prototype on display that was just radical. The Roller Buggy, designed by Austrian Valentin Vodev, is part skateboard, part stroller. Just pull out the board from under the chassis and it becomes a scooter.  Fun for parents, ... Read More »

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 »
