If you haven’t seen or heard of the Lollacup already, you should definitely check it out. It’s cute, playful, and receives rave reviews from many (including Shark Tank), so it was only a matter of time before Lollaland expanded on that success and launched more feeding options. It is always nice to have more options in the attractive mealtime category! New from Lollaland is the Mealtime Set.
Included in the Mealtime Set is a plate, bowl, and dipping cup. It looks to be the perfect size, too. I know my son would love that for the mustard he’s obsessed with currently.
Simple details rule the roost here. The Lollaland chick is featured subtly on the plate and the dipping cup. The bowl features the Lollaland logo along the rim. Attractive, pleasing to the eye, and complimentary for any table.
All materials are made and packaged in the USA, BPA-free and phthalate-free, easily stackable, and top-rack dishwasher safe. The shapes are both fun and educational.
The packaging is beautiful, if I may say so for tablewear, and would make a lovely gift for an infant or toddler. The Lollaland Mealtime Set is available in Spring or Summer colors for $20. The Lollacup is available in black, pink, blue, orange, red, or green for $13 a piece.

We introduced them earlier this year, but Re-Play has a few new items in their collection of recycled children’s tableware. A photo of their colorful booth was one of my most liked photos from the Expo on Instagram, so Re-Play is definitely a brand you should take a look at.
I was introduced to the extremely clever line of products from b.box and you should particularly take a look at these travel bibs! The dirty side of the bib and the flexible soft spoon zip right up into the bib when you’re done. With the brilliant design and cute patterns, you’re going to want a couple of these in your diaper bags at all times.
Silikids is significantly expanding it’s product line. Where they used to only have their special silicone covers for drinking glasses, now they have a much more complete feeding system that includes a snack bag, bib, bowl, sippy cup, sippy cup top, spoon, and my very favorite– the silimap placemat.
The new Silikids products will be available in December.
OXO debuted the Seedling High Chair. This new high chair will be coming out in December and should retail for about $150 ($100 less than their Sprout High Chair). While the Seedling is a really nice looking high chair, I’m not sure there’s anything that special about this seat other than its lower price.
I think their new bib is a good addition to their feeding collection though. This is another bib that folds up to trap the mess.
So are you looking forward to any of these new products?
shopping guide: back to school backpack bedding diaper bags feeding strollers
In case you want your stroller to look like your great-grandmother’s favorite armchair, Maclaren’s Cath Kidston Spray Flower Quest Buggy is back. $335
Nothing against Cath Kidston, I just prefer her modern vintage English style in smaller doses…

And now please excuse me as I redecorate my son’s bedroom to suit that penguin bedding!
While browsing a few online shops last week, the Toddler Company brand of feeding gear jumped off the screen to me with its simple beauty, so I wanted to share them here with you.
The colors are bold and fresh, the lines are clean and smooth, and the pieces even look like a breeze to clean. Toddler Company has created a cup, bowl, plate, and set of utensils that deserves your attention, and that can be hard to say for children’s place settings.
Plus, the design stands out as modern and fun.
The cutlery ($30) was designed ergonomically for little fingers that prefer chubby objects. Gripping these utensils looks easy and comfortable, which means better maneuverability, and for anyone that has ever cleaned up after a toddler’s meal, you know maneuverability is key in this beginning phase of eating!
The bowl ($20) is designed in a scooping-friendly manner, with sloped sides and an easy-to-hold rim. All of their products are available in red, orange, blue, or green.
The plates ($20) are also wide and easy to carry or hold in place.
The outside of the cup ($15) is made of a slip-resistant surface (as are the utensils, bowls, and plates), but the bottom of the cup is weighted and smooth, made for easy sliding across the table and less spills.
The Toddler Collection can be found in the US at modernmini.
I don’t usually post products from Slovenia, but they assured me that they ship the Froc High Chair all over the world and most of them head to the US, so we’re going to have a look.
The Froc High Chair is a fun and funky adjustable high chair that should work for most kids from 6 months to 10 years of age.
They boast superior stability and maximum safety and the picture has me sold on that point.
Available in 5 colors, the Froc can be ordered from their website for 199,00 €, which is about $270.
If you’re looking for something practical but a little out of the ordinary, this might be just the high chair for you.
Why is it that the foreign dining rooms are so much more fun than the ones we typically see in the US? This colorful Swedish interior adds fun vintage fabrics to an otherwise white backdrop to create a warm family space. (photo by Lina Ikse)

I love the look of this sturdy chair through all its stages. It’s a truly modern, stylish seat both as a high chair and as a child’s chair.
It comes in three color combinations and I’d say if there’s any room for improvement for the Zaaz it lies in the color choices. I’d love to see all 7 of the European colors brought here as well.

Picnic season is upon us, and if you’re looking for a good excuse to have a fashionable lunch at the park or the beach, here are some products that would make for a fabulous presentation. My son and I are frequenting the beach this month with family in town, and sand toys are always a huge hit — but this entire grouping was designed around this amazing grill.
1- The Rucksack by Gin & Luck- Coming Soon
Though this bag is geared towards those who like to imbibe, with the bags made of heavy canvas, leather, and waterproof compartments, this is easily also a bag that every parent or caregiver would love. The openings for wine bottles on the side bags could be used for those perfect bubble wands, and the gadget compartments could also be functional for storing sunscreen or outdoor flatware. This bag is on my must-see list for this summer!
2- Scoppi- $30
A clever new product that can be used year-round to shovel or sift snow and sand, and it appeals to all ages? Count me in.
3- Thermos Foogo- $10
A straw cup with the classic thermos style, design, and quality made for active toddlers.
4- City Boy Picnic Grill- $229
The design is incredible, sleek, sophisticated, and everything you would want in a portable product. The price is hefty, but if you live in an apartment or in a city space with grill restrictions, or just love to travel, this would be the perfect splurge.
5- West Elm Tassel Blanket- $49 (on sale now $35)
Throw this on the sand, grass, tabletop, or even living room floor to create a beautiful instant place setting.
6- Skip Hop Bento Mealtime Kit- $24
Always a great choice for packing baby and toddler lunches along with rationing out treats!
7- Monbento Single- $26
This Bento box is airtight, BPA-free, microwave and dishwasher safe, making it a nice option for home, work, and on-the-go.
Now you’re all set. Where is your favorite place for a picnic? Mine is the beach, provided we bring enough fresh water to rinse off before adding sand to all of our food!
