Techno of many colors

Simplicity is a beautiful thing. After years of offering their flagship Techno stroller in an array of different colors, this year Maclaren got smart. Last year, there were three versions of the Techno: the Classic, the XLR and the XT, and there were so many color combinations, it would make your head spin. Now they’ve cut back substantially. The Classic ... Read More »

Lined with Thinsulate, and wrapped in classic Skip Hop canvas colors, the bottle bags are an infinitely useful addition to the line. It comes in two sizes, the single and triple.

The stroller is recommended for 8 weeks and up, though it can be used with a newborn in conjunction with the optional infant car ... Read More »

Swinging Snug?

Whenever expectant parents ask me if they need to buy a swing, I always suggest they wait and see. Some babies really crave the motion while others don’t need it, and from my experience, if you’ve got one of the former, you’ll know it soon enough. Plus, swings eat up a ton of floor space. I had a swing in ... Read More »

The player holds about two hours worth of music and will play for more than 40 hours on a single AA battery. The speakers were nothing special (though it was ... Read More »

2007 Mountain Buggies are here

The 2007 Mountain Buggies have arrived. The big story is color, and not much else. There are a couple of minor improvements, most significantly double-backed fabric to reduce wear and tear. But the most substantial change is the introduction of a limited edition series, a designer series, and the upgraded Urban Elite series. For the Limited Edition series, there are ... Read More »

Itzbeen a good idea

The new Itzbeen baby timer has arrived. This clever little device was invented by Greg Sheldon, an engineer turned stay-at-home dad who found that he and his wife were constantly struggling to remember how much time had elapsed between feedings, diaper changes, naps, medication doses, etc. So he created a computer program to track all of these mundane but essential ...
