Jacques and Esther: New from blabla kids for Spring 2015

Two hippos are joining the blabla knit dolls collection this spring– Jacques the blue sailor and Esther the purple bathing beauty (at least that’s how I’m going to describe her).

Jacques and Esther

You KNOW I’ve got to be partial to Esther, even though she’s a hippo, because we Esthers have to stick together!

There’s also this adorable collection of new roly poly family rattles. I’m gonna call the little blonde one Esther too. I think we’ve got a strong resemblance.

Ferm Living Spring/Summer 2015

I’m looking forward to these great new pieces from Ferm Living for spring. Royal blue and Rose are the highlighted colors for the season, and while it’s the pink for girls and blue for boys type of thing, when Ferm Living puts their spin on it, you don’t even notice.

Ferm Living Kids SS 2015

There are new cushions, blankets, and three sets of house blocks.

My favorites are Little Mr. Teddy and Little Ms. Rabbit.

The block sets are Blue, Grey and Rose, but really, don’t you just need all three?

You’ll be able to find these new kids pieces as well as the rest of the SS2015 collection in the US & Canada from Clever Spaces.

Kickstarter Project: Puj Phillup Kid Cups

Puj is launching their newest product today on Kickstarter! We saw the kids cups at ABC Kids Expo, and while the name may have changed, the idea is as genius as ever.

pujcups2_2100x2100_1024x1024

PhillUp is a cup and hook combination that attaches to the fridge. Your kids can get their own drink of water and then put the cup back so it’s ready to go for next time. The cups are BPA and PVC free and safe for the dishwasher.

pujcups5_2100x2100_1024x1024

You can encourage your child’s independence and free yourself from the chore of fetching drinks. This also solves my family’s problem of the kids leaving their cups all over the house. When they can’t find the cup they were using, they just take another one. Seriously, how do two boys use a dozen cups each day?!

pujcups4_2100x2100_1024x1024

Save yourself from my headache and back PhillUp on Kickstarter to get your hands on the first PhillUp hanging cups. They’re now available at the introductory pledge price of $8 for one, $15 for a set of two. There are other pledge levels that include additional Puj products and experiences so if you’re a Puj fan, go see what’s available!

Newlie Diaper Bags launch Indiegogo Campaign

Leslie Newton, one of the founders of the well-known brand timi & leslie, has recently announced news of her customizable collection of diaper bags called Newlie. Newlie has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help spread their brand and raise funds for this fresh new line.

newlie1

Newlie is a “Moms-Based Business” which is designed for modern moms by modern moms. If you have ever wanted to have input into creating your perfect diaper bag, than this is the line for you. How is that possible? Each season, you help make selections for the style and then you can customize that style to fit your specific needs. I love this concept.

newlie2

The first two bags in the collection are solid: The Perfect Backpack and The Everything Tote. These bags have it all; created with high-quality faux leather that is easily wiped clean, these bags are PVC-free, include a clutch purse, changing pad, interior and exterior pockets, bottle tote, key fob, and stroller straps.

The Latest Gear and Accessories from ABC Kids Expo 2014

There’s a ton of baby gear on the show floor at the ABC Kids Expo and here’s the best of what I saw.

The Travel products from KidCo are no-nonsense, do what they need to do products, that work at home, while camping, or while traveling. The new items in the travel collection are the DreamPod Portable Bassinet ($150) and the TravelPod Portable Play Yard ($170). KidCo also added a lighter weight “Plus” model of the GoPod and updated the PeaPod as well.

KidCo Plus

Diaper Dekor diaper pails were getting larger (classic, plus and xl), but now they’re coming out with a smaller mini version for those who don’t prefer to store dirty diapers for very long.

For a limited time, this Dots by Karin BABYBJORN Bouncer Balance Soft will be available exclusively at Kohls.com.  If you want to go all in on the black and white for baby, you don’t want to miss this one.

Dots by Karin BABYBJORN 2014 Limited Edition

Babyhome is coming out with another version of their Dream bassinet. The Dream Air has sides that unzip for ventilation and visibility. This type of mesh on travel sleepers and bassinets for air flow and ventilation was a huge trend across the board at the expo.

Regal Lager‘s newest brand, Qdos, has some great modern baby gate options including a transparent acrylic gate. I’d suffer a few hand prints on that thing rather than use a clunky unsightly gate, but that’s just me. Qdos is a whole line of safety products and I look forward to seeing the rest of the line when they launch.

In case there aren’t enough color options for your Maxi-Cosi Mico car seat, soon you’ll be able to customize your seat when you order it. It’s a great car seat to begin with and now buying your Mico has never been more fun.

Maxi-Cosi infant seats

There are all kinds of fancy special edition strollers out there with fun or fashionable fabrics and finishes, but this iCoo stroller is the first I’ve seen with a copper frame.

I got to check out Stokke’s Trailz, their heavy-duty all-terrain stroller.  $1300

The Scoot is the compact Stokke stroller.  I love that it it forward or rear facing and has an upright seating position.  $600

Check out all the accessories for the Stokke strollers. And the Stroller Style Kit Seat Print (center with Beige Cubes) makes one super stylish stroller!

Fisher Price seems to be heading in a good direction with this Comfort Curve Bouncer.

Nuna showed the Mixx stroller and the full sized Tavo stroller.

The new Wind attachment for the Leaf keeps the seat rocking automatically.

And here’s a new changing tray top for the Sena.

There was plenty of new stuff and many brands I didn’t even get to! For more baby gear and stroller coverage from the Expo, check out Growing Your Baby, Spilling the Beans, Baby Chic 101 and Baby Gizmo.  It’s no wonder they had good coverage because I saw them all over the place!
