Ever-thrifty WASP's would never dream of throwing out that favorite chair just because the upholstery's worn through; they'd just get a slipcover and--presto!--it's good to go. Likewise, you don't need to get rid of your child just because it's winter and they can't fit in a Baby Bjorn while wearing a snowsuit.
Now, thanks to some enterprising New York City parents, you can keep your child strapped to your chest all winter long. With The Popover. It's a fleecy warm slipcover for Bjorned kids. It's got pullover mitten cuffs, a hood, a sleeping bag-style bottom, and a pocket somewhere for the kid's keys and cellphone.
At $90, The Popover is about half the cost of a JetBlue ticket to Palm Beach, where the WASP's would have gone to wait out the cold. Now, thanks to The Popover, they can stay warm--and in town--with us crazies.
