The new Maclaren frame

I found this on Magic Beans. Maclaren is introducing a new stroller frame with a redesigned circular pivoting hinge mechanism. This will end all finger entrapment, although it has apparently been in the works for years. Maclaren is already starting the switch and very soon all models will have the new hinge.

Kourtney Kardashian opens about her son's style

Kourtney Kardashian and her son Mason are on the cover of this month's Baby Couture magazine. Kourtney says she likes to dress her son in preppey chic clothes. Her favorite kids brands are "Ralph Lauren, H&M, Petit Bateau and Kicky Pants for PJs, splendid for loungwear. Scott had some custom made Astor & Black dress shirts and suits for Mase. As for shoes, LAMB, Minnetonka Moccasins, Ralph Lauren velvet loafers."

Pediped's Grip ‘n’ Go

Pediped will introduce a new shoe this winter, the Grip ‘n’ Go. This new shoe will be for toddlers in between the Original crib shoe and the Flex walking shoe. They are made with all the benefits of Originals but with thin, flexible rubber soles. The rounded edges mimic the natural shape of a child’s foot and the heel stability and soft toe box allow toddlers to feel and grip the floor. Grip ‘n’ Go™ is ideal for both indoor and outdoor wear.

Olive Juice

We recently got this dress from Olive Juice and it is by far the coolest I've seen in a long time. The quality is better than I can even describe in words. They're a tradional clothing company, yet a lot of their styles are pretty modern too. It's really a mix. But no matter which piece you buy, it all has the same great fabric and attention to detail and it's only sold online through their store.

Right now they have a really great Summer sale going on. This includes a $15, a $10 and a $5 outlet. Their Fall collection is coming out in a few days as well. I don't have a preview yet, but stay tuned to their site.
