This past Christmas, my kids were very fortunate to receive some really cool toys. Now that we’ve had a few weeks to enjoy them, Whirly Squigz are coming out as a top toy in my house. What are Whirly Squigz? Whirly Squigz remind me of fidget spinners, which have been a huge fad, but they’re safe for little ones(6 months and up). And honestly, they’re even cooler. A pack includes 3 Whirly Squigz made out of colorful BPA-free silicone. Each Whirly Squigz has a suction cup on the back. They spin around with just a flick and keep on spinning. They’re

Quick check in. The kids have been back to school for a few months now. Are you still packing their lunch with the enthusiasm you felt on their first day? I’m guessing the answer is probably no. My little guy has just started eating solid foods, and I am looking for ways to step up packing his lunch. That’s why I’m checking out the Boon Bento Lunch Box. Boon has been one of my favorite brands for a few years now. My kitchen couldn’t function without the Boon Lawn. I had the Boon Grass with my first, but decided to
We’ve stepped up our Wet Bags once again. The long-awaited Hangout Wet Bag is available now! Several years ago, a description of a prototype was included in one of our catalogs. Sadly, the production of that wet bag never came to life. Every now and then, someone in the Mob would stumble across this vintage catalog and ask whatever became of that wet bag? It was a bag lots of people wanted to get their hands on. Now that production of bumGenius diapers and accessories has moved to St. Louis (more on that here), we’ve been given some flexibility

Sometimes it looks like I am going on vacation when we are going for a simple outing. I have snacks packed, water bottles, sippy cup, cloth diapers, a change of clothes or 2 for both kids, blankets, burp cloths, toys, car seats, strollers, baby carriers and so on. It can be a bit much, so I am always looking for ways to simplify things and use products that work. It is infuriating when I reach into the diaper bag and feel a lid has popped off a cup of cereal and now it’s on EVERYTHING. Once something spills, it seems
