Modern Kids/Baby Gear

This weekend was one of my best-friend's baby shower.  

The time is coming where many friends are married; this is the fourth baby of the year.  All these showers have forced me to learn about all cacophony of baby gear that parents seemingly need. 

I am on a never-ending search for GREAT baby products.  They most certainly exist and really are show-stoppers!  I am always looking for products that I can feel excited about finding, giving, and using.  

Below are two products that I find unique, modern, and a worthy read. 

SuperWagon | Zen by Kaiku Design 


Every seat is a window seat...

Designed and engineered in California to get you and your little ones outside!Provides maximum comfort and ergonomics for riders and driver.18mos +

Pebble Mattress by Nook Sleep Systems


Nook presents the world's most considered infant mattress. From a unique air layer that fosters oxygen flow inside the mattress, to the superior softness of all-natural eucalyptus fibers, to the unique pebbled surface that promotes air circulation, every detail is examined for maximum breathability, non-toxicity and smart design in the crib.

Have you ever found something you think so wonderful you try and rationalize when and how you can convince yourself you need one? I stumbled on this weeks ago, considered buying it for my expecting cousin and have since become completely obsessed with J Schatz Egg Lamp.  


Child-like whimsy can make its way into all our our lives.

Oy for Oi! by Carol VanderKloot

Troving the halls at NeoCon, the major contract industry expo held annually in Chicago, I caught the usual suspects—office systems, task chairs, wall covering, lighting, carpeting. Don’t get me wrong, I love this show and appreciate theoretical explanations of new products and re-designed showrooms.
However, I came upon Oi modular sofas and was blown away by their stylish 70s aesthetic and their innovation. Available in three colors—grey, brilliant blue and lime green—cushy upholstered cells come out of box like legos. Cells fit on a gridlike aluminum based and can be configured in countless ways. One sofa fits entirely within a 30” cardboard box—and can be assembled easily and without tools. Wait there's more--interior is made from recycled cores.   OI-package
OI-Cube
Perfect for a library, playroom, dorm or to uplift a dreary wait room. Created by the design team Cocoon and made in Canada, I actually contemplated buying straight off the floor. Well, there’s always next year.
