luv their pudge: Puj Baby

Thumbnail image for luv their pudge: Puj Baby

I’d planned on writing about Puj Baby months ago. Months and months ago. In the world of blogging, that can seem like a lifetime. Still, there are outstanding design examples that heartily deserve to be revisited and adored. So I’m going for it anyway. Particularly because this baby bathtub is one of my if-we-have-another-one-must-haves, which […]

find your inner organista: school labels

Thumbnail image for find your inner organista: school labels

So. It’s August. As you may have noticed, back-to-school season is in full swing. I’m kicking and screaming like a toddler about the whole thing. I don’t want summer to be over! More importantly, we’ve got big changes happening this fall – Birdie starts PRESCHOOL. It’s bittersweet, as I’m sure many other moms are well […]

giant erasers overtake local schools

Giant Erasers, of course. Forget all those collectible mini masterpiece erasers. This school year, stomp out the little ones with one big, giant, slightly squishy elephant foot. Giant is a relative term of course, these guys are around 3″ tall. Jonathan Adler (King of Hip, but of course) is thoughtful enough to provide you with […]

And we all know melamine is a great option for the kiddos in your life. I’m gathering some of my favorites – from the megastores to the online faves. Let’s start with […]

It’s time to update my listing of the best flash sale sites for kids and their parents, one of my favorite fascinations. All those gorgeous things in the above image? We own all of it (or a slight variation of it), thanks to flash sale sites. Flash sales are online boutiques that focus on short-term […]

There’s a fascinating side effect to making Babble’s Top 50 Design Blogs for Moms. Companies are suddenly seeking me out. And I gotta admit, I’m enjoying it a bit. By and large, the conversations are friendly, the products are cool, and everyone benefits. But it’s the absolute best when  a company I already like contacts […]

where’s my pebble mattress?

I’ve been eyeing Nook’s organic Pebble Mattresses for some time. Then I sat kitty-corner from their booth for 3 days (while helping man Numsi’s booth) at the abc kids expo. Now I feel it might be bordering on an obsession. This is at the top of the list of reasons why we need a second […]

One of my favorite lines at the ABC Kids Expo – and one that gathered lots of buzz and lots of people – is Oxo Tot. You remember Oxo? All those kitchen gadgets lounging around your drawers and cupboards? They were one of the first companies to focus on ergonomic grips and modern design innovations, […]

Every tradeshow needs a celebrity, no? At ABC Kids Expo it was Tiffany Amber Theisen and her new line, Petit Nest. (She’s the second person from the left in the purple shirt) So much for my career as Paparazzi.

Every time I think I’m caught up on the things available for kids and babies, I find something new. It happened again today when I rounded the corner and stumbled into mOmma Technology. Based in Italy and Switzerland, mOmma’s line of bottles and cups are absolutely beautiful. The rounded bases are easy to grip for little […]

ABC Kids Expo – Boon

I think the coolest part about walking into Boon’s booth (which felt like a Minimalist’s playhouse of translucent windows scattered along a huge white box) was the super high-pile wormy bright orange carpet. It was hard to ignore, because all of the Boon staff were walking around barefoot – and looked so much more comfortable. […]

I’m taking a quick break between long walks around the ABC Show, and thought I’d give you a sneak peek at some of the new things from Skip Hop. Owls are a major Thing (with a capital “T”) at the show this year. Skip Hop is featuring their owls in the middle of a series […]

ABC Kids Expo – Brother Max

I arrived in Las Vegas late last night after the easiest flight of my life: we arrived 45 minutes early! Unheard of. My plans for posting today have been spoiled a bit by spotty internet sevice in our room, and my feeble brain. I ran back to the hotel to grab my laptop and use […]
