Fisher-Price Rainforest™ Open-Top Cradle SwingOf course we still love Fisher-Price's well-known bright and fun patterns that are a delight to children, and the new Rainforest™ pattern brought big smiles to our faces. The Open-Top Cradle Swing lets baby take a relaxing swing (side-to-side or front-to-back) as she watches plush rainforest friends in the mobile above play “peek-a-boo” among the leaves. While baby reclines in cradle comfort, one of 12 different songs play, along with soothing nature sounds. And when baby’s trip to the rainforest is over, the mobile swings away…until another day.

The Newborn-to-Toddler Portable Rocker folds easily and has a built-in handle, so it can go wherever you and baby do. Fisher-Price Cheer For Me Potty

The Cheer For Me! Potty is fun for early potty-trainers. There’s an amusing clicking sound when you push down the handle. There’s even a toilet paper holder. With songs to learn and encouraging phrases and sounds to discover, the Cheer for Me! Potty really does make potty training fun! Because it looks familiar to a real toilet, it encourages kids to make the transition to the grown up “potty.”

Organically Grown Boys 3-piece setOrganically Grown Boys Jacket Organically Grown Girls Bodysuit SetOrganically Grown Girls GownOrganically Grown Unisex Kimono Set"Wow" was our pure reaction when we felt Organically Grown's layette line. It not only felt soft and plush, but also had that high-quality cloth feel of well-made European lines. We also liked the fact that this "green" line did not go overboard by making their clothes look organic (you know, that soft brown with a grainy look). The layette line is well-designed in every respect. This company's goal was to make aOrganically Grown Baby difference to the environment by producing high-quality organic products. They succeeded easily in that endeavor, and in the process produced a line that will put a smile on a mom's face when she slips the soft, organic cotton over sensitive baby skin that deserves no less.

Cars N Kids Car Seat MonitorParents today are not afraid to admit we often second-guess ourselves. We are over-worked and sleep deprived. Many accidents can be easily avoided, and the Car Seat Monitor made by Cars N Kids gives parents the peace of mind when traveling with a car seat. Similar to the warning beep that sounds for you to turn off your headlights or put on your seat belt, the Car Seat Monitor sounds a lullaby when your car stops, reminding you that the car seat is in your car. After installation, the monitor automatically sounds when it senses the baby’s weight in the car seat. After a delayed stop, a soothing lullaby plays. You will also be thankful as it warns you when your adventurous toddler tries to escape the car seat.

Snuggle Nest from Baby DelightCo-sleeping parents everywhere fell in love with the original protective infant sleeper, the Snuggle Nest from Baby Delight.

SeatSnugParents notice the big difference in stability between a convertible car seat and a booster seat, because the booster seat is not anchored to the car. When a seat belt slacks or loosens the booster will rock and bounce around. SeatSnug allows the lap belt to be lightly tightened around a child’s hips, preventing seatbelt slack. By gently securing a child while riding in a booster seat, SeatSnug® substantially eliminates bouncing, rocking, tipping, falling over, submarining, and ejection, thus reducing the potential forSeatSnug injuries and death in vehicular accidents. SeatSnug® improves child stability and comfort, and parent’s peace of mind. Best of all, it’s easy to use!

Little ReaderThe founder of BrillKids taught his daughter Felicity to read using flash cards, homemade books, DVDs and  PowerPoint slideshows. He realized that what was lacking in the market was a customizable, user-friendly tool for teaching babies to read. The tool he wished he’d had when he was teaching his daughter became Little Reader. We love the customizable features of the software (designed for 4 mos and up), and the web’s most comprehensive early learning resources available on theBrillKids BrillKids website.
