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.

Bugaboo Bee recalled

The CPSC announced today that the Bugaboo Bee stroller has been voluntarily recalled. Apparently the brake mechanism can wear out over time, causing it to fail on one or both sides. Thank goodness, no injuries have been reported. Anyone using this stroller should stop using it immediately and contact Bugaboo to receive a free repair kit. The form is simple ... Read More »

Britax Advocate CS arrives

The newest Britax car seat model hit our warehouse last week, and is now in our stores. The Britax Advocate CS is being hailed as the “safest” Britax model available, thanks to sophisticated side-impact protection technology. The seat has “wings” on both sides (they look a lot like bumpers) that will cushion the child in a side-impact crash and reduce ... Read More »
