Munchkin introduces, Mbaby, new line of Baby Clothing

Munchkin has launched a new line of children’s clothing, Mbaby and it is filled with adorable classics.

mbaby

When looking for children’s clothing I want it to be affordable, adorable but most of all comfortable for my little one. I also make sure that the fabrics are durable, and will uphold to the many washings they are bound for. Munchkin’s new line, Mbaby checked all my boxes.
Teeny tiny Bee has been wearing the organic button down, long-sleeve onesie and we love it. I love not having to pull something over her head. The cotton is soft and I love having the choice of organic clothing, knowing that it is safer and cleaner for all. (There are four basics available in organic cotton.)

We also tried out the striped cardigan (love that it is reversible) and the striped kicky pants that feature a two-in one foot. They can either be worn folded over to expose the feet or turned under like little booties. Perfect for different temperatures, as well as increasing the longevity of  pants (when they get a little too short, just fold up and wear with socks!)

Mbaby apparel is classic and sweet with plenty of basics to complete baby’s layette. Two pieces are truly innovative: the Onester and Sleepster featuring a double layer front to keep baby cozy and snug warm without overheating them.

The line is offered in size 1 month through size 12 months. I would say the line runs a bit slim, true to size for a slim baby. (you might want to go up a size for a fuller baby.)

Aden + Anais: Hayden’s Heart Swaddles

 My favorite baby item has to be the multi-purpose, and versatile muslin swaddle blanket by aden+anais. Introduced to me by my younger sister, I instantly feel in love with the soft, lightweight, easy to wash, swaddle blankets.  Just in time for Valentine’s Day, aden + anais introduced their newest swaddle, The Hayden’s Heart swaddles. The Hayden’s Heart swaddles benefit the Hayden’s Heart foundation, a not-for-profit that brings awareness to and honors all children fighting Congenital Heart Disease, the leading cause of infant deaths in the US.  Congenital Heart Disease Awareness Week is February 7th through the 14th.
aden+anais, swaddle, congenital heart disease awareness week 

The aden +anais’ “Hayden’s Heart” swaddle blanket is inspired by Hayden Dorset, a young boy who lost his battle with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) but touched the lives of many long after his time here on earth. On March 12, 2012, Hayden was born with a very rare birth defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Much of Hayden’s time on earth was spent in and out of the hospital and after just 5 months with his family, Hayden unfortunately passed away.

The Hayden’s Heart swaddle was inspired by Hayden after his mother, Ady, wrote Raegan Moya-Jones, CEO of aden + anais and mother of four herself, a beautiful letter sharing their story. Whether it was nap time or bedtime, Hayden couldn’t fall asleep without the comfort of his aden + anais muslin swaddles.  Raegan was so touched by the letter, she knew she had to do something to honor his memory.

Congenital Heart Disease is the #1 cause of birth defect-related deaths, and the leading cause of all infant deaths in the US.
The collection will benefit Hayden’s Heart, a not-for-profit whose mission is to raise awareness for CHD and help families affected by CHD with the burden of medical and travel expenses.

Congenital Heart Disease Awareness Week, February 7 – 14th

The aden + anais Hayden’s Heart Swaddle retails for $19.95 and come in Pink, Taupe, Green and Blue and can be purchased at www.adenandanais.com.  For more information on Hayden Dorset, his family and Hayden’s Heart, please visit www.haydensheart.org.

FANS GET IN ON THE ACT:

ALL-NEW SING-ALONG VERSION OF DISNEY’S “FROZEN” HITS THEATERS NATIONWIDE JAN. 31, 2014

 

Moviegoer Response to Film’s Original Songs Triggers Sing-Along Experience in More Than 1000 Theaters

“‘Frozen’ fans have embraced the film’s original songs and its soundtrack with such passion—there are countless YouTube videos from people singing songs like ‘Let It Go’—we decided to create a version that would celebrate that enthusiasm,” said Dave Hollis, executive vice president, theatrical distribution, The Walt Disney Studios. “It’s a great opportunity for families to get together and have some fun with these songs.”

According to Hollis, on-screen lyrics and a magical bouncing snowflake will accompany select showings; moviegoers can check local listings for showtimes and theaters. The duration of the sing-along run will vary by theater.

Disney’s “Frozen” received two Oscar® nominations, including best animated feature and best original song (“Let It Go”). Named best animated film by more than a dozen critics associations, the film won a Golden Globe® for best animated feature, two Critics Choice Movie Awards, including best animated feature and best song (“Let It Go”), and a Producers Guild of America Award for outstanding animated feature.

In wide release since November 27, the film posted the No. 1 all-time Thanksgiving debut and the largest opening ever for a Walt Disney Animation Studios film. “Frozen,” WDAS’ 53rd feature film, has earned more than $773 million worldwide, including $337` million domestically. The film’s soundtrack was No. 1 in the Billboard top 200 for two straight weeks.

On Digital HD & 3D Feb. 25 and Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD & On-Demand March 18, the in-home version of “Frozen” promises continued family fun with a blizzard of never-before-seen bonus extras to complement the film’s gorgeous animation, memorable characters and unforgettable music.

ABOUT THE MOVIE

Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind “Tangled” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” presents “Frozen,” a stunning big-screen comedy adventure. Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf (voice of Josh Gad), Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom. The film is directed by Chris Buck (“Tarzan,” “Surf’s Up”) and Jennifer Lee (screenwriter, “Wreck-It Ralph”), who also wrote the screenplay. It is produced by Peter Del Vecho (“Winnie the Pooh,” “The Princess and the Frog”). Featuring original songs from Kristen Anderson-Lopez (“In Transit,” “Winnie the Pooh”) and Tony® winner Robert Lopez (“The Book of Mormon,” “Avenue Q”), and an original score by Christophe Beck (“The Muppets,” Oscar®-winning short “Paperman”), “Frozen” opened in theaters nationwide on Nov. 27, 2013. Accompanying “Frozen” is Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Get A Horse!” With Walt Disney himself as the voice of Mickey Mouse, the all-new short features Mickey, his favorite gal pal Minnie Mouse and their friends Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow as they delight in a musical haywagon ride.

Hullabalu-Introduces New Storybook App, Pan: Chasing the Keeper

Hullabalu, the NYC based company has introduced a new storybook app, Pandora. Hullabalu creates inventive, interesting and engaging storybooks that will capture your little one’s attention and tug on their heart-strings.

Suzanne Xie has created Pandora,  #1 children’s storybook app on iTunes in 15 countries (beating the Disney, Nickleodeon and Sesame Street books). Currently there are two books in the series, Pan: Pan the Fearless Beribolt and Pan: Chasing the Keeper.  These books follow Pandora,  a female lead heroine in the form of a little purple panda who is on the search for her parents. Pan isn’t perfect. She makes mistakes, sometimes really silly ones, and learns from them. All the trouble Pan causes makes her a stronger character in the end. Stories and parables have been used for centuries to entertain and educate both kids and adults alike, and Pan is here to remind us that learning is a life-long process best experienced through action, trial, and error.

The interactive epic adventures have been dubbed the “Harry Potter of IBooks” for many reasons.  When Suzanne set out to create the Pan series she noticed how tech was changing and asked herself how could she  bring stories to kids that will engage them even more and reflect this change in society? There are fewer stories that inspire girls and boys to be leaders and take adventures so Suzanne made that philosophy an integral part of our creation process.   Suzanne also noticed that in most epic stories the protagonist is almost always male. Suzanne’s hope is that her stories will make female heroes a more natural narrative, which will hopefully make an impact for the next generation of women.

The Pan books are not like most kids’ stories. The Hullabalu approach to stories is heavily informed by a series of leadership traits that are crucial to success at any age. Among them are: courage, perseverance and integrity.  Suzanne, an immigrant from China who spent the first 4 years of her life searching for her parents, learned at a young age the meaning of the American dream. Her parents, through a combination of hard work, humor and luck achieved it. Now she’s on a quest to translate these same values into a fun, clever and heart-felt mobile adventure aimed at kids aged 3-7. Her adventures are created to inspire kids to reach for success and do it with integrity. Achievement in her story is necessary for survival.

CLICK HERE to connect to itunes and download the adorable stories featuring Pandora now. Recommended for ages 4+, and available for both iPad and iPhone.

A bit about Hullabalu:

Hullabalu is a company based in NYC, creating stories for the new generation. We are inspired by our love for fantastical worlds, the timeless classics we grew up with, and the kids who visit our office.
Pan: The Fearless Beribolt is the first story app in the Pan adventure series. We hope you have as much fun with Pan on her adventures as we did making it!

Maty’s Cough and Cold Remedy Review & Giveaway

Cold and Flu Season is here and since my delivery I have battled a few colds. Of course, being a natural mama means I am especially keen to what I use as a cold remedy. I don’t want to put anything in or on my body that is unsafe or potentially toxic. But I also can’t be down for the count, so I rely on Maty’s full line of all natural remedies (they have products the whole family can use!). I had the pleasure of meeting founder, Carolyn Harrington at Blogher ’12 and she told me the back story of how Maty’s was founded. She and her husband wanted to find all natural yet effective products to help their daughter feel better, they couldn’t find anything that worked and thus Maty’s was born.
Made with all natural ingredients, no parabens, chemical or toxins, Maty’s has a full line of safe, and effective, cold remedy products that are also affordable and easy to find!
My two favorite Maty’s products are the “Breathe Better” nasal passage gel and the petroleum free “vapor rub“. I get immediate results from both of them no matter how stuffy my nose is or how persistent my cough. I love that I can understand the ingredients listed, that all Maty’s products are made in the USA and that not only do the products WORK, they work well!

Stokke Scoot, The Ultimate Compact Stroller, Review & #Giveaway,$499.99

If you’ve been following along, you know I am a member of the Stokke fan club, maybe even the president. Stokke makes incredibly beautiful, well designed and engineered products that are easy to love.

Time and time again I have raved about my Stokke Xplory, and our lil bee was the Xplory poster child, her preference for it convincing parents how special it truly was. We will use our Xplory for teeny tiny bee, and will love all the comforts it brings us. Our only complaint has been that the Xplory isn’t exactly a lightweight, “grab and go” stroller. It is the ultimate in luxury stroller comfort. But we need something more compact~ a stroller we could take anywhere and enjoy the comforts for which Stokke is known but with the convenience our life necessitates.

For us, that’s the Stokke Scoot!

Becoming a family of five means we will be on the go a lot! New baby has older siblings that are in and out of activities, parties and playdates. I need to be able to be mobile in a flash but of course want to offer our new baby a super cozy and snuggly place to rest when I am not babywearing. Stokke introduced the Scoot in early 2013, (yes!! I am a bit late to the game, it was quite a bumpy year!) and it is as special as our beloved Xplory in a more lightweight compact version. We call it an “Xplory light”.

stokke scoot, compact stroller

The Stokke Scoot is the perfect combination of function, comfort and attention to detail all wrapped up to make one super unique, not to mention compact and versatile ride.

  • folds flat and can be folded one handed (once you get used to it!)
  • comes with attached, easily accessible! basket that folds when Scoot folds
  • 2 way rear and front facing seat
  • 4 recline to upright positions
  • handle adjusts to different heights
  • compact when folded (we keep ours in our hall closet when not in use)
  • the sturdy/stable footrest doubles as a stepping bar for older children
  • easy locking brake (single brake, can be locked/unlocked with bare foot!)
  • easily fits through doorways
  • like the Xplory, it double as a cafe chair while out and about
