New Colors from Spot on Square

I liked the original patterned panels on the Alto Crib from Spot on Square, but these colorful translucent panels really get my brain buzzing. So pretty. This is a great way to add a modern pop of color to your nursery!

In addition, you can now get the Eicho Collection in gray in addition to white.

Now don’t mind me, I’ll just be putting an Eicho Twin Bed on my new home wish list. I have an almost 10 year old who could use an upgrade!

Fab Furniture at ABC Kids Expo 2015

As we wrap up our ABC Kids Expo coverage, there are a few new modern furniture collections that I want to be sure that you see.

From Newport Cottages, if you really want to go full on with the Mid-Century modern details, the Skylar collection is your dream come true.

Dutailier had its new Caramel nursery collection on display. They’re just getting sweeter and sweeter, aren’t they? (collection name joke)

Finally, another Spanish nursery brand was testing the US waters at ABC Kids. I loved both cribs from Bresole, the Nubol and the Juvi and the rocker was a prototype they’re working on, so let’s keep our fingers crossed for that beauty. As is, it was a little small. I’m 5′ 5″ and the seat seemed a little petite for me.

Aren’t you excited about all the nursery possibilities?!

Cute Decor from ABC Kids Expo 2015

The new patterns from Petit Pehr really caught my eye.


I love the Noah’s Ark design as well as the Pom Poms.



It was great seeing our friends from Kid Wild Collective, and I love their new plush pillows like the mushroom and Mr. Cat!


New from Babyletto at ABC Kids Expo 2015

Babyletto is one of the best modern brands from MDB and they always have new nursery offerings to look forward to.

The first attention-getter is the new Hula Crib. This, like other oval cribs, converts from a bassinet to crib.

The Tuba Glider lives up to its namesake. This is a hefty wide glider without a hefty price.

The Macaron Glider and Dottie Bookshelf are two unique nursery pieces that will help make Babyletto one of the most fun and playful nursery brands. There’s also the new Pogo bookshelf that unfortunately I failed to snap a photo of.

Terrific Toys from the ABC Kids Expo 2015

When I’m looking for a break from all the baby gear and strollers at the ABC Kids Expo, I go searching for a little fun in the form of toys.

First I was excited to come across the new line of toys from Monroe Workshop. Their collection includes mini robot horses, a robot monkey and this Robot Monkey Rocking Horse.

You’ll also want to take note of their incredible Haverhill Rocker. I would have loved to bring one of these home with me!
