Robeez acquired by Stride Rite

In a move that makes perfect sense, Stride Rite last week acquired Robeez Footwear for a purchase price of $27.5 million dollars in cash. Since 1996, Robeez has seen steady and strong growth, and has come to essentially dominate the category of prewalker footwear for infants and toddlers. Sandra Wilson, founder of Robeez, will stay with the company as a ... Read More »

The set includes 15 colorful, amorphous foam appliqués that stick to the wall and tub when they’re wet, two mini-scrubbies, and three balls. It’s unusual to find bath toys that ... Read More »

Here comes Stokke

I just received a newsletter from Stokke with a sneak preview of their new products to be introduced at the ABC show. With their permission, I am sharing the highlights with you here. The Xplory We’ve asked for it. You’ve asked for it. And now, they’ve delivered. Car seat adaptors are now available for the Xplory, one for Graco and ... Read More »

Fender Senders

The Phil and Ted’s e3 has been explosively popular over the past few months. Parents love how the nimble single stroller can be reconfigured to carry two children. But in the two-toddler position, one child sits close to the ground and, therefore, close to the wheels. As expected, many curious hands got very grimy. There was a small outcry, but ... Read More »

The Orbit is in the ‘house

Our first full shipment of Orbit Infant Systems arrived today, so we are now officially in stock and ready to ship, in both black and mocha. Both colors look beautiful, and we hear that Brooke Shields had such a hard time choosing that she ended up getting both. Read More »

Essential, meaning you’ve got to have it.

When JJ Cole introduced their Essentials Bag, the first product in the burgeoning Essentials category, I was dubious. The bag was cute and all, but what did parents need with a diaper bag that offered very limited storage space and didn’t include a changing pad? I still don’t quite get it, but with the introduction of the new Diapers & ... Read More »

It sucks when your baby has a cold.

Literally. There’s a brand new nasal aspirator from Bebesounds that offers battery-powered suction. This product would be hysterically funny if it weren’t so downright innovative. There’s nothing more awful and frustrating than trying to pin down a writhing, miserable and congested baby to stick a rubber bulb up her nose and suck out its overflowing contents. If you haven’t been ... Read More »
