Day 15: Mountain Buggy Duet

I’m pretty sure that, according to the rules of physics, the Mountain Buggy Duet shouldn’t even exist. How is it even possible that they managed to shave 4 inches off the standard side-by-side double stroller width? I don’t know how they did it, but what’s important is that it’s done. And the Mountain Buggy Duet, launching this month, should make ... Read More »

Day 12: 4moms Mamaroo

The mamaRoo, created by 4moms, uses robotic technology to soothe your baby: it recreates the motions that moms use to soothe their babies, along with a few other motion modes (the five modes are Car Ride, Kangaroo, Tree Swing, Rock-a-Bye, and Ocean). Babies love motion in part because it stimulates their vestibular system, in part because it mimics the constant ... Read More »

Day 11: Baby Jogger Pod

Flexibility. As parents, we just can’t get enough of it. Our kids? Not particularly flexible — at least, not when we need them to be. Our schedule, our bosses, our childcare, our spouses, our neighbors — well, some of us are luckier than others. Anytime we can find a little flexibility here and there, there’s this great sense of relief ... Read More »

Day 10: phil&ted’s Nest

Everyone has their own sleep styles, patterns, and positions. In the US and Europe, we mostly sleep in elevated beds with blankets and pillows. In Japan, about half of the population sleeps in a Western-style bed, while the rest sleep on flat futons on the floor. Various hunter-gatherer societies sleep either on leaves, on thin mats, or on the bare ... Read More »

Day 9: Quinny Zapp Xtra & Travel Bag

There’s something about the letter “z” that makes a word dynamic and quirky. Like “Zapp,” a thoroughly appropriate name for the Quinny stroller we’re giving away today. This 19-pound stroller is made to zoom and zigzag around the city with a minimum of fuss: reviewers praise its ability to negotiate small spaces, and it’s amazingly easy to push. Whether you ...

Day 8: Melissa & Doug Costumes

This past fall, we did a photo shoot. One of the things we photographed was the Melissa & Doug Cooks Corner Kitchen, as seen in this picture: A few months after the photo shoot, we found a box of leftover items, including these lightly-used chef costumes. Ordinarily, I would’ve just donated them, but my son had been a little obsessed ... Read More »

Lucky 7’s

This year, on 7/7, Magic Beans will celebrate 7 years in business. If milestones could function like slot machines, we’d be golden. But we feel so lucky, even without a jackpot. We’re lucky because we get to work with an amazing group of passionate, loyal, intelligent, creative people who really care about our company. We’re lucky because working together is something ...
