Chloé Fleury

I should have introduced you to Chloé Fleury’s shop long ago, but since she’s having a moving sale this weekend, I thought now’s a good time to make up for the omission.

Her inspiring nursery was shared online far and wide,


but her 3D paper art has really stolen the show.

The Paper Bunny Kit and Paper Fox Kit are $40 each, but through this weekend you can take 15% off with the coupon code BYESUMMER15.

Hottest New Gray Crib Bedding

From three of our favorites, you’ll love their gray crib sheet sets…

Twilight Buddies

Cloud B might be most famous for the Sleep Sheep and Twilight Turtle (which we have and love to give as gifts!), but if your little one doesn’t love turtles, there are other adorable options!  We saw some of the Twilight Buddies last year at ABC Kids Expo, and here are a few of the ones that have come out…

Sometime you find new products in real-life, as in before you see them on a blog or website.  Today at Target was one of those days.

Mima Strollers and High Chair

Since their US debut at the ABC Kids Expo in 2013, Mima has really taken the baby gear market by storm.  With a style that is part space pod and part luxury car interior Mima is becoming the new “it” brand for stylish urban moms.

Mima’s current US product line includes three strollers, the Xari, the Kobi and the Bo, and the Mima Moon high chair.

The Xari looks sleek with its leatherette fabric and high sitting position.  It transforms easily from bassinet to seat and is easy to fold and unfold.  The stroller starts at $1200.

Mima Xari

You can learn more about it in the Mima Xari Demo Video on youtube.

If it’s not cool enough for you as it is, the Black and White limited edition Xari should push it over the top!  Right on trend, the black and white edition is pretty hard to get your hands on.  In Canada, try here.  Ask your local retailer about it.

Mima Xari black and white ltd

The Kobi is Mima’s double stroller.  With the same high-end look as the Xari, it can be configured as a buggy, a single forward facing stroller, a rear facing stroller, or a double with any combination of seats and bassinet.


The Kobi starts at $1350.

Mima’s lightweight stroller is the Bo.  Mima’s leatherette fabric elevates the look of this 15.5 pound stroller.

Mima Bo

It starts at $300.

Finally, the Mima Moon is one of the hottest looking new high chairs out there right now.  A seat pad, tray and booster are included and the Moon comes in six colors.


It retails for $500.
