Keeping Baby’s Legs Warm

Sure, maybe legwarmers were an 80’s fad best left to the pop-culture history books. But for babies and little kids, they’re a very practical way to keep warm on cold days. You don’t need to be a Flashdance fan to think these are cute, either. Baby Legs has introduced a whole line of mini-sized legwarmers in very hip patterns. Believe ... Read More »

Stokke + Dwell = Swell?

Dwell Baby’s new line of bedding for the Stokke crib has just arrived, and – no surprise – it’s really gorgeous. There’s no lack of good options these days for Stokke’s signature oval-shaped crib. Even the bedding that Stokke is producing is really amazing. I think it’s very forward-thinking of Stokke to actively pursue partnerships with bedding powerhouses like Dwell. ... Read More »

The Tipping Point

So, the Micralite at the airport. A great feature? The stroller is free standing when folded. This is a huge plus when you’d prefer not to lay the stroller down on a filthy floor or sidewalk. Security was a breeze. The Micralite folds clean, almost to the dimensions of an umbrella stroller. To fold, you simply push down a lever ... Read More »

Dramatic Safety Lesson on YouTube

Kyle David Miller was just 3 years old when he was killed in a car accident in May of 2005. He was buckled into a belt-positioning booster seat, but his seatbelt failed and he was ejected from the car. His parents learned a painful lesson in car seat safety, and they have created a beautiful, poignant and powerful video designed ... Read More »

No, it’s not a tissue box.

Check this out. It’s a disposable potty. It’s basically a small cardboard box with a hole in the top and a hygenic liner inside. It’s primitive, but it will do the trick in a pinch. As I see it, there’s no reason not to keep one or two in the trunk of the car. The best part is that a ... Read More »

At First Sight

Do you remember how it was at the beginning? You were struck by their looks, or perhaps their charm. You thought to yourself, Now here’s something interesting. And then, face to face, the charm and beauty feel quirky. And you’re left uncertain. Perhaps you fell too quickly? (It’s happened before.) Or perhaps you’re just nervous at the prospect of something ... Read More »

First steps made easier

Any parent who has cheered on a new toddler surely remembers the weeks leading up to those first tentative steps. Chances are, you spent a lot of time hunched over, walking behind your baby as she grasped tight to your index fingers and tottered all around. Sound familiar? If you haven’t been through it yet, trust me when I tell ... Read More »

Running hot and cold

The new Digital Bath Spout Cover with Built-in Digital Thermometer (yes, that’s the product name; it’s trademarked) from 4 Moms is one of my most highly anticipated new arrivals for 2006. When I saw a demonstration of the product at the JPMA show in May, I was extremely impressed. But they were showing a prototype, and I found it hard ... Read More »

Yeah, But What Stroller Would Mary Use?

From rock stars to rabbis, a circuitious route has brought me, Mommy Masha to the Magic Beans family. I’m looking forward to bringing you news from overseas. I’m leaving for a two and a half month stay in Jerusalem and I’m seriously sweating which stroller to take. Advice from family and friends has made it all the more confusing. “Must ... Read More »

Mutsy is here!

We received our first shipment of Mutsy strollers today. I’ve written about the Mutsy a couple of times already, so I won’t bore you with too many details. We are carrying the 4Rider model, which is the sleekest of the Mutsy frames, with 2 large pneumatic tires in the rear and 2 small pneumatic tires in the front. It handles ... Read More »
