Giveaways are BACK

Welcome to November, the official kick-off month to the holiday season, AKA the season of giving. We’re celebrating by bringing back another 31 Days of (holiday) Giveaways. To preserve our sanity during our busiest time of the year, it will work slightly differently this time around. New giveaways will begin at noon every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday starting today ... Read More »

Great IdeaPaint Giveaway

As anyone who has ever sat in a meeting with me knows, I love whiteboards. I love the way a whiteboard can help organize a conversation, define objectives and lend focus to an outcome. They’re also very entertaining when my kids come to visit – something which may be unremarkable in most other offices, but given that our office is ... Read More »

National Family Game Night tonight

Forget those TV premiers that you’ve been enjoying all week. Tonight is the first official National Family Game Night, and that sounds like fun. Hasbro is sponsoring the event and challenging families to take a deep breath, turn off the iPhones, the iPods, the iMacs and any other iThingies that distract you from your kids. Instead, reconnect and play a ... Read More »

It’s National S’mores Day!

That’s right, there’s a holiday for everything. Today is National S’mores Day, which means I felt a moral obligation to eat some. I know that part of the fun of S’mores is roasting the marshmallows over an open flame, but whenever we do that, I eat like a hundred marshmallows. So I developed a recipe for individually wrapped, baked S’mores ... Read More »

Birthday Blitz

Happy 5th birthday, Magic Beans. Today, for the 7th day of our 31 Days of Giveaways celebration, we’re going overboard. Instead of giving away just one item, we’re giving away 8. Why 8 and not 5? After all, it is our 5th birthday. But we couldn’t choose just 5, so we decided to screw the symbolism; the more the merrier. ... Read More »

Day 4 – Step2 Lifestyle Dream Kitchen

Step2 is one of the newest members of the Magic Beans family, but we’ve been ogling their products for a long time. It’s not exactly surprising, but a lot of social conversations with our friends (especially those who are parents) eventually come around to Magic Beans and the fun task of product selection. We hear a lot of feedback about ... Read More »

Day 3 – Baby Jogger City Mini Single

I’ll never forget the first time I laid eyes on the Baby Jogger City Mini stroller at the end of an exhausting ABC show in Las Vegas. I knew right away and without question that it was a slam dunk. Since that day, I’ve tried many times to channel the feeling of total confidence I felt looking at that product, ... Read More »

Day 2 – Beaba Babycook

The new Beaba Babycook has been on my blog to-do list for months, literally. But we haven’t been able to keep it in stock long enough to write about it. Now, finally, supply is catching up with demand. Well, almost. But today, you can win one for free. The Babycook is our Day 2 Giveaway for our 31 Days of ... Read More »

Day 1 – Chicco Keyfit 30

To kick off our 31 Days of Giveaways, we wanted something really special. The Chicco Keyfit 30 car seat has an interesting history with Magic Beans. The first time we ever saw a demonstration of that seat, we were amazed. The engineering of the base is ingenious, and it is designed to be nearly foolproof to install. But in spite ... Read More »

31 Days of Giveaways starts tomorrow

We wanted to come up with something BIG to celebrate our 5th birthday this year. So when Eli had the idea of doing a giveaway every day during July, we thought that sounded just perfect. We reached out to our favorite vendors and we were overwhelmed by their response. We have an astonishing group of products lined up, and a ... Read More »
