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.

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.

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.

Modern Kids Dining: In Black and White

We’ve started exploring the black and white trend for nurseries, but it works in any room of the home. This clean modern dining room from alebesso.com features a stokke tripp trapp in black. I imagined setting the table in this space and added a little fun for the child at the table. I couldn’t help myself with the pandas. There were just too many great panda items. Believe me when I say I restrained myself! But the plates and place mat are simple and classic and can be used for the whole family beyond the toddler years.

Bloom Fresco Chrome Giro High Chair

In case you worried that special editions in the baby gear world were restricted to strollers, Bloom is coming out with special edition high chairs.

Bloom Fresco Chrome Giro

This limited edition collection features bright pops of color on the oh-so-modern Bloom Fresco Chrome high chair.  5 colors– blue, pink, orange, green and yellow– are available with either a black or white.

giro-preorder

Like all Bloom Fresco Chromes, the Giro edition starts as a cradle and converts to a high chair.  Retail price for the Bloom Fresco Chrome Giro is $650 and includes all accessories.  Contact bloom for preorder information.  These should be available before the end of the summer.

Stokke Steps: Seating System from Bouncer to High Chair to Child Seat

Stokke Steps is the first (at least that I know of!) bouncer and high chair combination.

I love this as you need the high chair just at the time when your child is getting too big for their bouncer, and like everything else Stokke, its Scandinavian design looks beautiful in the modern home.

Stokke’s Tripp Trapp high chair is a design classic, and this multifunctional marvel is the first product worthy of swaying your attention away from the original.

You can see more photos on Stokke’s Steps board on Pinterest.

Stokke Steps should be available in the US in March. Suggested retail for the Bouncer is $199 and the High Chair Solution which grows with the child from 6 months is $450.  While it seems efficient gear-wise, buying a Tripp Trapp (about $370 even with tray and baby set as accessories) and a bouncer separately looks like the more affordable way to go.  What do you think?

Coming Soon: New Baby Feeding Gear and Accessories from ABC Kids Expo 2013

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?

Coming Soon: New From Monte Design at ABC Kids Expo 2013

We spotted two new items from one of our favorite modern nursery brands, Monte Design at the ABC Kids Expo 2013.

First, they’re introducing a walnut base on the Tavo High Chair.  This adds even more opportunity for you to match your highchair with your adult dining furniture, and the walnut just looks spectacular, no?

While giggle currently is the exclusive retailer for the beautiful new Como Glider, this will be more widely available in 2014.  In our last post we showed the Pebble Gray, but here you can see it in Sand.

Don’t you even just want one of these for your living room?

Coming Soon: Mima Debuts in the US at ABC Kids Expo 2013

Everyone gets excited when a sleek European brand crosses the Atlantic, and this year that brand is Mima.  The Dutch brand has only been around since 2009, but with its sleek, high-end look, it’s getting everyone’s attention.

The Kobi is a versatile single, double or twin stroller that starts at $1300.  It’s available now with tons of color options and accessories.

The Xari is a $1200 stroller that is only available as a single… but a beautiful single.

What do you think of the special edition plaid versions?

Mima

Mima’s lightweight stroller is called Bo.  This one should be out in January and retail for $350.

I’ll be very interested to see how Mima catches on in North America.

New Boon Flair High Chair “Flavors”

Accessorize your Boon high chair with the seat pad and tray liner sets.  Retailing for $30, the sets come in Green, Blue, Orange and Pink.

Boon Flair High Chair colors

These can be used with the Flair and Flair Elite highchairs.  I’m always happier with more color options!

Froc Modern High Chair

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.
