Maxi-Cosi LoolaLife is good, but it gets better with Loola™. From birth to approximately 4 years and up to 50 lbs., Maxi-Cosi®'s brand new Loola™ stroller is a full-size stroller with an easy, compact fold. The Loola has a wide frame that makes tipping less likely than with so many other strollers. It of course has an easy to handle 5-point harness for safety.

Another great feature is the handle-mounted lock that allows you to switch easily between fixed or swivel front wheels. The handles adjust for your comfort, and Loola has a generous shopping basket.

The Hushamok Dream is designed to provide you and your baby the most peaceful night’s sleep you have come to know. The Dream is for the all in one parent.

P'kolino Little Reader SofaP’kolino continues to bring out the modern kid in us with their incredibly fun and smart items. The Little Reader Chair was a huge hit at the last Best & Hottest and we are excited to now feature the Little Reader Sofa. Made from the highest quality materials, premium high-density foam, and upholstered in cozy, stain-resistant fabrics the feathery light Little Reader is striking and supremely stable. Even smarter – it has two pockets for “stuff” and easily pulls out to a sleeper.

Another example of why we love P’kolino: The Multi-Use Art Easel. It functions as a traditional art easel, a chalkboard, a whiteboard, or a puppet theater. Two marvelous “coloring-book” scenes are included to use as backdrops when this clever easel is in puppet theater mode. TheP'Kolino entire unit folds flat for easy storage and unfolds in a snap for use. P’Kolino attractiveness and quality makes this easel is in itself a work of art.

P'kolino Multi-Use Art Easel
Svan High Chair Svan High Chair embodies form, function and flexibility. Designed for every stage of your child's life, the Svan Chair provides a safe seat for your child from his first taste of applesauce to his first computer. The chair has a 3-point safety harness, is easy to clean and environmentally friendly. But the single best feature of the Svan Chair is its tremendous versatility. It can be used as a traditional high chair with a tray, but remove the tray and even a young infant can be seated up to the table for a meal with the family. Later on, the safety guard can be removed so your child can step up into the youth chair on his own and seat himself at the table. It eventually becomes a full-size chair. Best of all, the style of the Svan Chair is never compromised through all of these stages. Your child can use the Svan Chair even as an adult, but the primary benefit is that the adjustable foot support grows with them until their feet reach the floor in a regular chair (typically around 8 to 10 years). After this, the Svan Chair can be used as a full-sized chair.
PlasmaCarWe fell in love at first sight with PlasmaCar by PlaSmart Inc. It's simply one of those items that makes parents wish we were children again.

It's easy to operate: all that's needed is a smooth, flat surface, kid power and hours of fun. Children hop on a PlasmaCar, then zip and zoom around for an exciting “joy”-ride! PlasmaCar is the ideal toy for energetic children, promoting healthy exercise and works great indoors and outdoors. The PlasmaCar is available in Red, Blue, Green, Purple, Pink and Yellow.

The sun shines, children fly a kite, birds feed their chicks, squirrels play in the trees, and a rainbow shines in the distance. And there's so much more to find! Watch carefully, and you can put all the pieces back in the right places and tell countless stories about the people and animals in the puzzle. Each puzzle piece has a round, wooden knob that little ones can easily grasp.

Tier Toys Noah's Ark

Tier Toys, the Australian maker of a new line of toys known as Stackers has created an ingenious stack and play product line that kicks off with the debut of Noah’s Ark. Children get to walk pairs of every imaginable animal up the plank such as two giraffes, two lions and even two kangaroos! Part of the beauty of this toy is the sheer sprawling fun at your fingertips as the Ark is opened up layer-by-layer, and the clutter-free compactness of it once it is reassembled. The speed and ease with which the entire Ark can be fully or partially taken apart and reassembled is astonishing, making for many different stages of play and infinite possibilities for the imagination. The Ark consists of 12 different stackable layers that lock together into a solid, fully inhabited ship when the ramps are up. Included are 44 detailed play figures, 40 of which fit neatly into their pre-Tier Toyslabeled resting places below decks, while the heads and necks of two giraffes extend regally through the roof. Two human figures stand watch on the deck of a fully contained and populous playground for the imagination!


Everyone knows that airplane seat belts alone do not keep your young child safe. That’s why the FAA, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Transportation Safety Board, and the airlines encourage you to carry an FAA approved safety restraint for young children when you fly. Until recently that meant hauling a heavy, bulky car seat – never designed to be portable – through crowded airports, security portals and narrow airplane aisles. Then you had to wrestle it into unforgiving airplane seats for which it was never intended. Thank goodness for the CARES (“child aviation restraint system”)! Just carry a CARES in your pocket or purse, install it on the airplane seat in one minute, and turn any airplane seat into a safe airplane seat for your child! CARES is the first and only FAA approved harness type child safety device. This innovativeCARES - Kids Fly Safe restraint for kids 22-44 lbs takes the hassle out of flying with kids and keeps them as safe as a car seat.

Stride Rite shoes now feature groundbreaking Sensory Response TechnologyIf you're like us, you love Stride Rite shoes. Would you believe they have improved what was already the best with groundbreaking technology?! Stride Rite shoes now feature Sensory Response Technology, or SRT -- the shoes are designed to optimize the movements of the foot to allow babies to develop a healthy and natural gait during the critical learning-to-walk period. Why SRT? Since babies’ feet are not fully developed, they use their toes to grip the ground and distribute their weight; this allows them to maintain balance and establish a positive walking, running or moving pattern - otherwise known as your gait. These early steps determine the gait for the rest of their lives: much like a computer software program which is developed over time. After the program is complete, babies will use it for the remainder of their life. With extensive research on gait characteristics and function done at the Hospital for Special Surgery’s world renowned Leon Root Motion Analysis Lab in New York, Stride Rite was able to develop its groundbreaking initiative in the design of baby shoes. With babies being able to better feel the ground beneath them, they will naturally develop healthy walking patterns from the earliest stages of movement. Some additional features: SRTs offer eco-friendly dri-lex linings or leather linings that act as a wicking agents, extracting moisture to help keep baby’s foot dry, comfortable, and breathing naturally. The upper is designed with ultra flexible materials throughout, that conform to the baby's' foot naturally. The outsole is engineered to allow babies to feel the ground beneath them and adapt to uneven surfaces while providing the proper support. The forefoot of the outsole allows for multi-directional flex, while the mid-foot provides stability and the heel provides cushioning. These three components together aid in the healthy development of the child’s foot. For stability, the mid-foot features an hourglass construction that mirrors baby’s foot, supporting bones and muscles in baby's feet that are not fully formed. The sensory cushioning system conforms to baby’s foot: sensory pods provide the ultimate feedback system because they move independently allowing the child to adapt to uneven surfaces. Babies are protected by a smooth rounded transition from outsole to upper, which prevents catching an edge and reducing the number of stumbles and falls. Finally, SRT has a removable foot bed with our unique check fit system that allows mom or dad to knowStride Rite if it is time to see a fit specialist. SRT also features a recycled EVA heel cup, and a partially recycled outsole that is stitched or attached by water based adhesives to an upper comprised of premium leather and textile materials.
