One thing you’ll start to notice when you have a toddler is that they start to out grow strollers… usually its by weight – the stroller just doesnt handle right or worst. When most people start shopping for strollers they dont ever thing of the size their child will most likely grow to be… my wife is 5’9” and I’m 6’2” having a small child wasnt in the cards — back then the Britax B-Ready wasnt on the market but if I was having a baby today – it would certainly be one of the top choices.
Lets give you the run down on some specs.
For use with children at least 6 months old, up to 55 lbs More >
When you’re a parent safety is the #1 factor… shortly behind that comes easy of use. Living in manhattan you take certain things in stride – like I’ll just hold my baby instead of carrying a carseat into and out of every taxi from FiDi to the Upper East Side. Truth is we dont lug those things around because of the pain in the neck that is it to always put them in to and out of cars… which is why when my son hit 4 years old (he had already met all the other height and weight requirements) I was happy about moving over to a Clek Olli booster seat.
This is super cool in looks – ease of More >
There is a ton of great items about to hit dadarocks over the next week but I’m really excited to talk about this… Kodak over the course of this week is running a great Facebook event where people can upload pictures of their dads or their kids dads (get it perhaps your husband father to your children). Those photos will be shown on the Kodak.com homepage and on Kodak’s Times Square Billboard in New York City. Check out this Facebook event page http://kodak.ly/shareDad and just upload a picture. This isn’t a contest, there are no prizes, but kodak will be selecting 100 to 200 photos for More >
There are two things about spring and summer that I love its finally time to get outside and play. This spring was pretty lackluster in NYC as it was raining most of the time but now summer is around the bend the sprinklers are in the park and its a great time to get outside and play. In my mind there are many great outdoor play games…
When you have a young child nothing beats watching them chase after bubbles – it used to be that you’d get light headed after 5 minutes of blowing said bubbles but with recent technology you can have hundreds of bubbles being blown for as long as the More >

The idea of the virtual pet has come along way from the days of little black and white little egg shaped toys years ago. Now children (and adults) can raise their own interactive pets… Kinectimals [amazon] is the first video games that allows you to be the controller using the xbox 360 kinect system to interact with your virtual pet. There of course is a great twist which is you can purchase different stuff animals/plush toys to unlock different characters. Since this was one of the first games being developed for the system its still by far one of the best. Microsoft certainly has More >
It’s time to break it down! Look think what you will of Michael his music was amazing and I dont know if there is more then 3 tracks that he’s ever created that wont have you tapping a toe in less then a minute. The Experience is from the line of games by Ubisoft – its awesome how they nailed the moves, nailed the music, and give you so much game play in just one artist.
When I first took this game out my wife and I danced for over 2 hours and even stopped for dinner in between rounds. We keep trying to beat each other scores, dance to tracks from easy, medium and hard. Even my little More >
Welcome to day 3 of 10 days of gifting – We’ve got a great gift for those that drink almost anything! I mean it this Tassimo Brewbot T20 by Bosch [Amazon] serves up coffee, tea, cappuccino, latte, crema, espresso and hot cocoa.
When I told my wife she was like yah ok great… you want to know got her to smile is that Tassimo T-Cups are the only ones that have Starbucks – thats right it was like magic to her ears. Each t-cup makes 6 oz of drink, of course you add more water but it will water down the drink. It’s perfect for those families that don’t drink the same thing or just needs one More >
