Coming Soon: What’s New from Skip Hop at ABC Kids Expo 2014

My visit with Skip Hop is always a highlight of my trip to the ABC Kids Expo.

This year, the most exciting new debut from Skip Hop is their Zoo Pals Rain Gear.  With matching umbrellas ($15) and raincoats ($30), your toddlers can take their favorite zoo pal even further. Monkey, Ladybug and Owl lovers are in luck this time around.

Skip Hop Rain Gear

Skip Hop’s Playspot playmat is reaching a new level of style and sophistication with this Triangle Tiles set. With the same cushy comfort for playtime, the zig zag design blends into your home’s decor.

A few fun new toys are being added to Skip Hop’s line like the Roll-Around Rattles, Click Clack Hedgehog and Bandana Buddies.

The Zoo Line is also expanding its mealtime accessories with a 4-piece Zoo Lunch Kit, Insulated Food Jar, and Zoo Snack Cup. They are all ridiculously cute.

These Zoo Packs and Lunchies will be limited editions for the holidays, so if you love them, please snatch them up asap. I’m really digging the Polar Bear.

The Moby bath range now has a tub stopper. It’s a very comprehensive set now!

The owl nightlight and projecting mobile are on their way. These are actually really stylish little electronic accessories and I think they’ll be big hits.

Finally, for it’s 10 year anniversary, Skip Hop’s Duo Signature diaper bag is relaunching with new and improved features like tote handles and a smart phone pocket. Just think, we didn’t have smart phones 10 years ago!

The Special Edition Duos are also really cute bags.

Great job, Skip Hop (and thanks for the cupcake)!

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…

Fox, Pig, Hippo, Sheep, and my favorite (as a Floridian) the Alligator.

Etsy Find: Twig Creative

Twig Creative is a great place to find handmade holiday gifts for your little ones this year.  The husband and wife team have a sweet collection that includes wooden toy cameras,

They’ve also teamed up with Oh Joy! for extra special editions of each of their products.

I adore the colors on the special edition Child’s Chair.

Finally, Instagram fans (like myself) might be partial to the Anagram (wooden camera inspired by Instagram).

Coming Soon: Nightlights and Humidifiers from ABC Kids Expo 2013

Nightlights and humidifiers are often overlooked, but in my opinion are nursery essentials.  I was happy to find plenty of new options at the ABC Kids Expo 2013.

We love our Twilight Turtle but these new Cuddle Buddies will bring the magical star lights to a whole range of cuddly creatures.  These are quite a bit cuter than the Dream Lites my kids originally wanted.  The final menagerie hasn’t been selected just yet, but there were tons of cute options.

Cloud B

I was partial to the Fox, but kinda wish they made a version of their star projectors that grown ups could use in their rooms!  If the underwater look of the Tranquil Turtle is more your style, the Starfish is a pretty cool option.  It’s great for older kids too!

There were lots more new things at Cloud B, but we’ll talk more about them when they’re released.

Duux is a new name from Scandinavian Child, and with their beautiful line of baby electronics, I think we’re going to be seeing a lot of them.  First, the Duux Humidifier Mushroom is part nightlight and part ultrasonic humidifier.  It’s notable as it uses 80% less power than other humidifiers.  The Mushroom won the JPMA Innovation Award in the Infant/Parent Care Category so it’s having a strong debut!  Duux also has an Air Purifier (with an essential oil vessel), a Baby Projector with stars and lullabies, and a plain white ball shaped Ultrasonic Humidifier.

Duux

I kinda want one of each of these at my house!

Stadler Form and Crane humidifiers were also on display but I didn’t get a chance to talk with them.  Next year I’m going to need assistants if I want to cover the whole show!

Best Modern Nightlights 2013: Sponsored by Babyli.st

Little and often overlooked, nightlights are invaluable in the nursery.  They’re not just comforting to babies and children, but they shine just enough of a light in the room to make it easier to check on sleeping kids without disturbing them.  With boys who are 7 and 4, I still have a variety of nightlights in each child’s room– including three on this list!

These top 10 modern nightlights are listed in no particular order as part of our baby registry series sponsored by Babyli.st.  Pick your favorites and don’t forget to add them to your baby registry.

1- OXO Candela Zoom- $23
LED light glows when removed from its charging base.  I wanted this cute rocket lamp for the longest time but never did get one.

2- Cloub b Twilight Plush Turtle- $28 on amazon (list price $42)
This plush, battery powered nightlight is our last line of defense for the little one.  On nights when nothing else will do, we turn on his beloved Twilight Turtle (also comes as a ladybug) and let it project a night sky on the ceiling and walls.  He can pick a yellow, green or blue color light.  I’d love one in my room as well!

3- OK to Walk! Children’s Alarm Clock and Nightlight- $30
This cute nightlight glows yellow and night and can be programmed to glow “green for go” to teach children what time its okay for them to wake up.  I might want to try the additional alarm clock function for my oldest now as well since he’s going to have to start waking himself up to get ready for school this year.

4- Kinderglo Rechargable night lights- $25
Available in a variety of cute designs, the Kinderglo night lights are soft, safe and easy for kids to carry around with them.  They glow red, green or blue and will either dim and shut off after 30 minutes or stay on continuously.

5- Boon Glo Nightlight- $58
The multicolored Boon Glo features removable balls that glow wherever you carry them (like into bed!) and fade after about 30 minutes.

6- Gummy Bear Nightlight- $29
These adorable, battery-powered nightlights are available in a rainbow or gummy colors.  LED light turns on with a squeeze and stays on for an hour or indefinitely.

7- Star Egg Nightlight- $165
This handcrafted ceramic nightlight is available in a variety of colors and features tiny pinprick holes that allow light to shine through and create a star effect on the nursery walls and ceiling.

8- Giimmo Magic Lights- $35
Tap to turn on or off.  The Giimmo Magic Lights are available in a variety of cute designs.  Magic Lights feature a built in LED and poseable limbs.

9- Beaba Pixie Night Light and Lantern- $22 on amazon ($56 list price)
This is the nightlight my 7 year old keeps on his nightstand.  He can tap it on during the night, or carry it with him as a lantern to the bathroom.  The rechargable LED nightlight sits on a base to charge and can be used when removed from the base.

10- aden + anais Serenity Star- $90
A sweet star shaped nightlight is just the beginning of the description of the Serenity Star.  This simple little device is also a feeding tracker, sound machine, room thermometer, and clock.  Use all the features or only the ones that are useful to you.

Add your favorite night light to your baby registry with BabyList.  BabyList lets you ask for exactly what you want from the retailers of your choice – including your favorite local or independent shops (like Etsy).

Crib Sheets and Something New from Aden + Anais

I’ve been meaning to introduce you to Aden + Anais’ crib sheets for a while now, so it’s high time I let you know that everyone’s favorite muslin swaddling blanket makers are selling soft and pretty bedding for babies as well.  Just because your little one has grown out of the swaddle, doesn’t mean they have to give up their cozy, comfy Aden + Anais.  There are nine classic muslin sheets and four organic cotton options.

The classic sheets retails for about $30 each and the organic versions are about $40 each.

While the crib bedding is a natural addition to their line, a little more curious is Aden + Anais’ newest product, the Serenity Star.  This multi-tasking gadget serves as a feeding diary, sound machine, room thermometer, nightlight and clock all in a simple design that would fit in any nursery space.

For $90, I see this being a new go-to gift for baby showers! Can’t wait to check it out in person.

I Buy Modern: My Recent Purchases

One of the hazards of this blogging game is that I’m always shopping online for you, and every so often, I find things that I can’t resist myself.  These are a few of my most recent purchases.

1- Once I spotted this I Will Never Lego print on swiss-miss, I knew I had to have it.  Not sure which of my two boys will get this one, but it’s got to be in my household.  I have a few days to decide before it arrives.

2- We purchased a Mini Kanken when my youngest started preschool a few months ago, and while it was the perfect size for him, the only thing that fits into it is his lunchbox.  There’s no room to stuff anything else like a jacket, so I’ve just upgraded him to this Classic Fjällräven Kanken backpack in Ox Red, his color of choice.

3- Beaba’s Pixie Night Light and Lantern now sits on my son’s nightstand.  It’s the perfect thing for him to grab on trips to the bathroom in the night.  I just wonder how long we’ll be able to go before the Pixie gets a little smile added to his face.  For now I’m hiding all the permanent markers in the house!

4- I finally purchased a Boon Stash for myself.  I’ve got it hanging at my desk to store little odds and ends without taking up space on the table top.  I’m very pleased!

5- Finally, speaking of my son’s nightstand, this was a recent addition as well!  We needed a place for his alarm clock, books, a glass of water and of course, the nightlight, so I purchase the Ayres Nightstand from Argington to go with his Ayres bed.  So far so good!  And he loves the little drawer on the bottom for storing all his “valuables.”

Let me know if you have questions about any of the products!
