Browny The Dog Wooden Pull Toy from Djeco

DJ6331.jpg

Pull toys are definitely a staple of every toy chest. I guess kids just love pulling around the clacking and gyrating beasts. The Browny The Dog Wooden Pull Toy is a great looking pull toy. He's got a floppy head, a lolling tongue, a wagging tail, and a little bell that chimes as he's pulled along. Browny is made from solid wood and child-safe non-toxic laquers.

Miracles & Milestones: Table Top Playmat

tabletopplaymat.jpg

One of our biggest problems going out to eat is what to do to keep Andy entertained. The Miracles & Milestones: Table Top Playmat is perfect for this problem. It is made of vinyl so it's easy to wipe clean. The sides have suction cups to stick to the table. The activities on the sides include tracking beads, a pop up lid with mirror, a clicking toggle, and a textured roller. It can be washed with or without the side toys as the actual mat unbuttons. And it folds for easy storage.

Geduldsteine Blocks from Haba

HA1193.jpg

These Geduldsteine (German for patience stones) are neat little building blocks. One face of each is a window into a little puzzle waiting to be solved. The blocks are made from maple wood and coated with several layers of non-toxic laquers. They definitely look well made and will probably last through years of abuse!

Review: The Farmer Says

farmersays.jpg

Here's a toy that has changed a lot from when I was a toddler using it! Gone is the pull string on The Farmer Says. Now there is a pull lever on one side. There's also a page that can be flipped, revealing new animals to learn. There's a quiz mode addition as well as The Farmer in the Dell and Old MacDonald songs too.

Andy loves this toy. I was worried that the lever would be too hard for him to pull, but he has no problems. You do need to pull it all the way down for it to work though, not just 3/4 of the way. Andy is very interested in what everything around him is named, so this toy is helping him learn his animals. While it's different than the version I grew up loving, I am still a fan.

Lean On Me Activity Bolster

04801.jpg

When Anderson was just learning to sit, we always had to stick a pillow behind him, because he would throw himself backwards at the slightest provocation. With this Lean On Me Activity Bolster our fears would've been eased. And as an added bonus it makes a great play area. There are five different toys attached, including an eight page book that crinkles and rattles. There is a removable snack cup, storage pockets and a carry handle. This might be a great bolster to take with you on your holiday travels this year. The one thing I don't get is: do they really expect 2 year olds to use this? Maybe as a place to sit while watching their favorite TV show?

Alpaca Coverall Hat by Oeuf

alpacacoverallhat.jpg

Andy hated hats last winter. I had a neighbor stop me at the mall once to complain that I didn't have one on him. I didn't see the point of trying though, as he's throw it off and end up in a bad mood. I think the Alpaca Coverall Hat by Oeuf would have been a good option for us. I could have distracted him long enough to forget it was on! This hat will stay where it is while also keeping the ears and neck warm. Besides the brown and raspberry one above, it's also available in grey and white.

My First Touch 'n Feel Flash Cards

touchnfeelflashcards.jpg

When we reviewed Goosie Cards earlier this year, I was surprised at how much Andy liked them. Even now, he hands them to us to read to him all the time, or else goes through all the pictures. Here is something similar, the My First Touch 'n Feel Flash Cards. Each card has textures on the picture as well as the word underneath so your child can explore the cards as he learns the words for them. The back of each card also offers talking points for parents and the word in four other languages as well.

Amazing Animals Sing & Go Choo-Choo

K0467_d_1.jpg

For some reason, just about every kid loves trains. Here's a neat one that would make a great gift this holiday season, the Amazing Animals Sing & Go Choo-Choo. The train has three removable animals (they're relatively large so they won't be easily lost) each with movable joints, textured feet, and teethable ears. As your child plays with the train, it will light up and play catchy songs. It has two modes to help it grow with your child: a sitting mode for the youngest children, and a motion-activated mode.

Review: WedgEZ

using-WedgEZ-2.jpg

If you're like me and many other parents, you probably hate pulling out those little plastic outlet protectors every time your searching for a place to plug your vacuum in. Well, the folks over at WedgEZ have a great new product that will make that a lot easier, and they've sent us one to review.

The idea is simple enough. It's a curved plastic wedge that you stick behind the plastic outlet protector. Then you just twist the handle towards the wall and out pops the protector. It couldn't be any simpler than that. The handle has little brackets to attach it to the power cord of your vacuum cleaner, which is certainly a convenient place to keep it. And it fit the cords on both the vacuum cleaners in our house just fine.

The best part about the WedgEZ is the price. At $3.99 each, or 3 for $9.99, they're cheap enough to get several to keep in different places around the house. That way you'll never be prying out outlet protectors with your fingernails or the prongs on a plug again. And if it's easy to take the protectors out, you'll be more likely to put them back when you're done, keeping your exploring baby safe!

So, here at Super Cool Baby we definitely love the WedgEZ. In fact, we love it so much that its going to become part of our standard "new baby gift pack" that we've been giving to all of our expecting friends and family!

TerriBear Graffiti Lamp

Review: Learn & Groove Musical Table

pTRU1-2856880dt.jpg

While with my family during thanksgiving, Andy had the chance to play with a few new toys. One of the toys was the Learn & Groove Musical Table that we've written about before.

This table is definitely aimed at kids who are a little older. It's listed for children 6 months to 3 years, but at the very least your child will have to be able to stand. There are 8 different interactive activities. You can flip the page of the book, open the lid to the secret hiding spot, play the cello, the piano, the banjo, and the trombone. There's a part you can spin, and shapes that pop up.

Andy really loved playing with this toy. He did all the different activities several times in each session, and it was a toy that he would go back to several times over the long weekend. It was definitely a toy that he enjoyed playing with, and one that Santa might end up bringing this holiday season.

Radio Flyer Classic Rock and Bounce Pony

radioflyerclassicpony.jpg

I am going through a Radio Flyer phase. There are at least four different products that I want of theirs right now. The Classic Rock and Bounce Pony is the newest addition to my Radio Flyer wish list. This pony has a safety saddle that can be removed for older riders, a patent rubber bounce suspension that is safe and quiet, the fabric of the pony can be removed and washed, the ears are crinkly, and it's also won many awards, including the National Parenting Publication's NAPPA Gold Award.

Patent Leather Moccasins

patentmoccasins2.jpg

I love baby shoes more than most things. They are so unbelievably adorable. Andy has feet that are so wide we can't buy them from most stores. But if I could, I would buy the Patent Leather Moccasins. Green gives an outfit such personality and makes it more fun. They'd go well with anything too, for a girl or a boy. They are skid resistant and also wipe clean.

Perennial Buggy Blanket by Brooks Pond

detail_perennial.jpg

Books Pond makes some super cool products. Their Buggy Blanket is a great example. This blanket is much more than just a blanket. In the summer you can convert it to a lap pad or play mat, and its washable bottom half can be used as a liner to protect your stroller from sticky summer messes. In the Fall use just the breathable wind- and water-resistant nylon shell. In the Spring the scuff resistant boot guard and boot pouch protect the interior from muddy shoes. And of course, in the winter, use it to keep your child warm on those cold wintery walks!

Eezy Peezy Toddler Swing And Slide

Eezy%20Peezy%20Toddler%20Swing%20And%20Slide.jpg

The problem with most swing sets is that they are way too big for the little kids. One came with our house, but Andy is still a couple of years away from fully getting use out of it. I think the Eezy Peezy Toddler Swing And Slide would be much better if your toddler wants to play but is too young to climb. It is low to the ground, safe, and much less inexpensive than we were expecting. I also love how high the weight restrictions are. For those of us with large babies, we don't have to worry about them growing out of it before they are ready, like so many other products.

Laminated Chalk Mat

4004-1.jpg

Are you tired of cleaning crayon off your tables and floors? I know I am. Which is why I want this Laminated Chalk Mat. This 11x17" mat comes with chalk (and your can use your own obviously), and simply unroll it to give your little one an instant space to be creative. And I've got to imagine that chalk is way easier to clean up than crayon on just about every surface.

Faux Fur Baby Russian Hat

hat-choc-main.jpg

This Russian Hat over at Calliope Boutique is super cool. It's made from high-quality faux fur that won't shed. The ear flaps are big enough that you don't necessarily need to tie the hat to cover the ears, but lets be honest you'll end up tying it just to make sure your child doesn't take the hat off! The hat is available in 3 sizes (newborn, 0-1, and 1-2) and in thee colors (Chocolate, Honey, Milk). This would definitely make a great hat to keep your baby warm this winter!

Mega Brands CAT 3-in-1 Jr. Ride-On Dump Truck

21znFJarFBL._AA_SL160_.jpg

This 3-in-1 Ride-On Dump Truck would be a great gift for any of you with a toddler in the house. The truck is big enough so that toddlers will be able to easily push it around as they walk. And with the dump bed up, your child can ride the truck while grasping the steering wheel or the dump handle. The steering wheel features three buttons each eliciting a construction site sound: an engine starting, a horn honking, and a truck dumping. The truck creates engine sounds when pushed forward, and even beeps when in reverse! And of course, you can remove the batteries for some more imaginative sounds as well. So, if you're looking for a great gift this holiday season, this would be a great one for any little boy or girl who loves construction sites!

Silikid Bibs

The Silikid Bibs at Baby Dagny seem to be a much better designed bib than most of the ones I currently own. This one is designed to lay flat against your baby, is made of a wipe-away material that won't stain, and it's even dishwasher friendly. It's perfect for someone on the go! It's even available in four colors.

Review: Bébe Belay

IMG_0263-1.jpg

Bébe Belay recently sent one of their products to Super Cool Baby for review. According to their website, this accessory is "an instant bib, baby bootie connector, and pacifier holder" all in one product. It definitely sounds like a very useful little gadget, so I was very excited to try it out.

The Bébe Belay arrived in a padded envelope very quickly. It was inside a sheer and shiny little bag with a ribbon. The bag is reusable we must note, and the ribbon is a part of the bag. We liked that a lot! The first thing we noticed was how small it is. Each end has a clip on it, and they were holding a card for the company with its instructions on the back. Bébe Belay is available in 10 different patterns, five of which are limited editions. We received the blue stripe one, which is probably the one that would match Andy's clothes the best.

Blossom Flower Fabric Box by Haba

blossomflowerbox.jpg

I still haven't found the perfect toy storage containers yet. I do really like the Blossom Flower Fabric Box by Haba and would strongly consider it if I had a girl. The middle section is removable via velcro and reveals a zippered base perfect for storing small items. The top part also has a lid that can hide small trinkets too. I love the patterned flowers that decorate the outside, many of which are also 3D. There's a mirror on one side too. If you like this, you may also like the Blossom Sit and Play Stool which has storage as well as a game included.

Mountain Boy Sledworks Bambino Grande Pull Sled

21Hy7qAw8vL._AA_SL160_.jpg

Looking for a sled this winter? We've already seen one, but the Bambino Grande Pull Sled by Mountain Boy Sledworks is in a whole different category. This heirloom quality, hand crafted pull sled is built to last for generations. It's made of thick birch planks with hand-carved willow hand railes. The bottom is made from a high-quality black plastic that glides easy over snow while its wide stance keeps it stable. The sled supports up to 150 pounds, and the extra long pull rope will make it easy to pull up those hills!

Ladybug Hat

All of a sudden it's gotten a bit chilly in North Carolina. I know it's not Florida, but I haven't planned for the cold weather down here. So naturally I'm now looking into hats for Andy to wear.

They are an adorable way to keep your baby warm this winter!

Some of my favorites include Rocket 'Scape, The Owl Who Prefers to Listen Rather Than Speak, and Future of Blogging.

Toy Tool Set

The oak carrying box holds a toy hammer, screwdriver, saw, a square, old-fashioned hand drill, and a 6 inch ruler. The tools are made of various solid woods including walnut, maple, and oak, with a natural oil finish. If you're looking for a unique and thoughtful gift for the upcoming holiday season, this might just be it!

Safari Bowling Set

When I was little, one of my favorite toys was bowling sets. I'd play with one whenever I'd visit my grandparents along with my cousins. We always had a blast with it, and I think it'd be fun for Andy to have something similar. The Safari Bowling Set has jungle critter pins that jingle, crinkle, and rattle and soft and yet still stand up easily. The ball has a chime inside of it, and every piece is machine washable.

Review: Alphabet Blocks

As Andy's suddenly interested in everything in the world and wants to learn what everything is called, we've both really liked the Alphabet Blocks by Fisher Price. They are clear with something in the center of each with the first letter of the word on the block. Andy can hand them to me to ask what is inside. Many also have pieces inside that rattle or make noise (such as plastic rain drops inside the umbrella block) or have motions or textures. They are a good size for little hands too. They come in a nice structured bag for when play time is over too. Andy is a big fan of these blocks, and I highly recommend them to you.

Little Puppy: Finger Puppet Book

I'm always looking for new books for Andy. He is obsessed with them, and honestly I am tired of the ones we currently have after reading them all to him all day long every day. I think the Little Puppy: Finger Puppet Book is adorable and would make a great addition to his library. The book has a finger puppet attached to the book and peek-a-boo holes in every page. Andy would love this one because he is obsessed with dogs, but the book also comes in butterfly and kitten versions too.

Changing Pads at Pink Taffy

pinktaffychangingpad.jpg

I've mentioned before how much I like changing pads. We use changing pads on the floor of Andy's nursery instead of his changing table since he's now so wiggly when we change his diaper. And of course they are great for other times too. They are mobile, easy to clean, and can be stored almost anywhere. The changing pads at Pink Taffy are ones to consider if you are in the market for some. They roll up and come with a ribbon tie, are backed with chenille, and can be machine washed. They come in a bunch of great designs too, including brown dot, candy dot, lil' cowpoke, retro rockets, rising star, soft spot blue, soft spot pink, and sage zoo animals.

Dogs Stretched Print

I love the contrast colors and how bright they are.

Many are available in more than one color, and the sizes seem to go from 3 to 18 months. We just wish that they'd now tap into the older children market. What happens when your baby outgrows these sizes? Our top designs include City Surf, Tree Hugger, and Foam.

I'll be the first to admit that I hadn't heard of Angelina Ballerina before. But when we recently received the new Angelina Ballerina: A Star Collection boxed set, I was intrigued. This boxed set was released last month, and includes 3 DVDs: Lights, Camera, Action!, In the Wings, and Rose Fairy Princess. Each DVD runs about 50 minutes and includes special features like read-alongs and several games.

Angelina Ballerina is a complete stranger in our house, but if you've got a fan, this would make a great gift in the upcoming holiday season!

Velour Soft Shoes and Cozy Cub Slippers

veloursoftshoes.jpg

Andy's been wearing no shoes or socks around the house since he learned to walk. Unfortunately, it's suddenly gotten colder where we live, and I am not sure what to do about his feet. After some research, I've found two products that we're putting on his Christmas list, the Velour Soft Shoes and the Cozy Cub Slippers. The shoes are not restrictive, come in an anti-static velour, has a non-slip sole, and are easy to put on. The slippers have ergonomic, conform-to-fit insoles that mold to the shape of the foot, have a non-slip sole, and go on and off easily. They both seem perfect for this winter on our hard wood floors.

Cozy Cruiser Baby Sled

This soft, inflatable sled has a three sided security enclosure and tough, welded-on rubber handles. It's got an extra-long tow rope, for those long trudges up the hill, and a reinforced base to help guard against popping. It supports up to 100 pounds, so you can probably fit a couple of babies on there!

Wooden Lion Puzzle

Also, it can be put on a shelf and used to decorate the nursery or play room as well. It's made of basswood and is paint and finish free. There's also similar puzzles in the shape of a cow, pig, rabbit, tortoise, and the ocean.

Then when your little one gets older, move it down to his height to have some extra space for toys and knick-knacks.

Review: Green Pea Designs Baby Pouches

096.jpg

Green Pea Designs was kind enough to send us one of their pouches for review. While Andy is too big for a pouch at this point (right at the maximum weight of 35lbs), we luckily have a friend who recently had a baby, and she has been kind enough to help us with our review.

Tummy Time Farmyard Play Mat

farmyardplaymat.jpg

One of my problems with play mats is that they are boring for tummy time. So of course we think the Tummy Time Farmyard Play Mat is perfect. For babies that don't like tummy time, they have something to distract them. The animals crinkle and rattle, can be pulled, and there is a mirror. This mat is also bigger than many others, and the wedge can be removed from the mat. It's machine washable too!

Who Is Sitting on My Head?

714846.jpg

One of the first toys that Anderson really played with was his stacking rings. Well, here's an interesting take on that toy: Who is Sitting on My Head? Instead of boring plastic rings, there's zebra, giraffe, pig, and fish rings. The rings have hidden noise-makers and are covered with soft fabrics. And the whole thing is over a foot tall, so its bigger, than most of the other stacking toys.

Handy Hook Coat Rack by Haba

handyhookcoatrack.jpg

If you want a coat rack for your child's room but don't have the floor space, the Handy Hook Coat Rack by Haba is perfect! It screws into the wall, it's arms don't stick out very far (and it looks like they can turn in or out, but we aren't 100% positive on that), it's colorful with a happy smiling face, and the pockets are removable and machine washable.

Wooden Front Loader with Cab

fagus-radlader-neu.jpg

This wooden front loader is a neat toy that reminds me of the well made toys that I played with as a kid. Its large, nearly 16 inches in length; so its big enough for small hands to grasp and steer. The bucket is raised in lowered in an easy-to-grasp winch as well.

Kipiis Bib Clip

kipiisbibclip.jpg

This is the perfect thing for your diaper bag. The Kipiis Bib Clips make almost anything into a bib. We've found ourselves eating out not prepared many many times before, and if we had this product, we could have just turned a napkin at the restaurant into a bib. It also works for making toddler aprons, it's dishwasher safe, and it's available in four colors.

Spin-Around Glitter Drum

Here is a cute toy for a baby just starting to get to know his surroundings. The Spin-Around Glitter Drum spins easily and has different colored glitter patterns throughout. It's also on a sturdy base, so you don't have to worry about it tipping over. Great for babies who have just learned to sit or for tummy time!

Santa Train Set

A friend of mine always had a train set around his Christmas Tree. I loved the idea, but we never had anything like that. Well, check out this Santa Train Set. Its easy to assemble: just connect the track and add the train cars, then load up the presents and the passengers! The set comes with the velvet storage sack for easy storage when you're all done.

Hot Moms Club

I felt like I was living in a box recently when I discovered the Hot Moms Club. How could I not know about this site? It pulled my in instantly. Finally a site with articles that I actually care about! They have articles on parenting, beauty and style, house and home, recipes, and a ton more. It's an empowering site that helps me feel like the world hasn't passed me by just because I became a mother. If you want to see what other hot moms are doing and thinking, check the site out!

My First Bubble Machine

12545.jpg

Babies and toddlers just love bubbles. Can you blame them? I still love blowing bubbles! Well, with this bubble blowing machine children as young as 18 months can have fun blowing bubbles with just the push of a button. The spill-proof toy will burst into a flurry of bubbles whenever the handle is pushed down. It comes with 4 oz of a safe, non-toxic bubble solution, and refills are sold separately. I'm not sure if you can refill it yourself, and if you can't that would be very annoying. It runs on 2 AA batteries.

Does your child want to sit back and relax just like you? If so, you may like the Toddler Recliner. It looks just like the adult version, and it's available in five colors. It's great for reading, video games, watching television, or just copying Daddy as he watches the game!
