Gypsy Kids Table and ChairsWe are so impressed with Sprout children’s furniture, and its creator, Clark Davis who as a boy, loved building, discovering, creating and inventing with Legos, and then taking them apart, rearranging and reforming them to create something new. As he grew up he went on to creating and building in his dad’s cabinet shop, and just after graduating college, his entrepreneurial career began. Soon Sprout tool-less furniture was born, and furniture became not a fixture, but a way to interact, create, discover and learn with surroundings. Sprout is so easy and quick to assemble. Just snap the parts together, and you’re done. Sprout  6 Cubby OrganizerBecause the Sprout line is made of interchangeable modular components, individual parts can be swapped to change the style, or even the function of yourSprout Kid’s Rocker furniture. Made in the USA with eco friendly parts, Sprout furniture packs flat and stores away easily when one child outgrows. We fit an entire room of furniture in a stroller! The Gypsy Kids Table and Chairs is sturdy for any project and fits toddlers through early childhood. The Kid’s Rocker is designed to inspire, stimulate creativity, and then rocks your kids as they sit back and admire their work. The 6 Cubby Organizer is great for storing everything from books to clothes to toys. You can configure the internal dividers or add storage bins. We can’t wait to see what else Clark thinks of to let kids (and adults) Play. Think. Grow. Sprout

Kiinde Kozii breastmilk warmer & bottle warmerWe could not have been more excited to find the Kozii breastmilk warmer & bottle warmer by Kiinde. It allows parents to safely and quickly warm breastmilk, formula, and food in storage bags, bottles, or jars of all shapes, sizes and materials. It is the first and only warmer designed specifically to follow all guidelines set forth by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) to safely thaw and warm breastmilk using warm, flowing water. Patent pending SAFEHeat™ technology allows high-speed warming using a low temperature, nutrient-safe water bath that is safe for breastmilk. The result is a warmer that is safer, more precise, faster and easier to use, versus conventional warmers which create localized heating that can be damaging to the antibodies and nutrients contained in breastmilk. Kozii's warming chamber is designed to accommodate a full 8oz bag of frozen breast milk, and to quickly bring it to serving temperature. SAFEHeat™ ensures that the contents of the warmer are brought to the same temperature every time as easily as possible. A simple, easy to read timer allows parents to set the desired warming time by simply turning the knob. When the time is up, the warming stops completely, eliminating the risk ofKiinde overheating, if the bottle or bag is left in the warmer for longer than intended. Someone finally got it right.

Crane Cool Mist Humidifiers

With all the recent uncertainty surrounding cold medicines, it is no surprise that pediatricians strongly recommend cool mist humidifiers to relieve a baby and young child’s nasal congestion as a safe alternative. Humidifiers also protect from dry skin, chapped lips, and nose bleeds. Kudos to Crane for creating the perfect Children's Cool Mist Humidifier to complement any nursery. The Crane ultrasonic humidifier works by using high-frequency vibrations into a very fine mist and sending it into the air without heating the air, so there is no danger of steam burns because the water is cool. The humidifier's one gallon water tank runs up to 11 hours and can be set to automatically turn off when the tank is empty.
