Some other dads have been stepping up to the plate and reviewing some gear on their own blogs: Laid-Off Dad posts about buying Robert his first (non-leather) baseball mitt: "1) nylon is more pliable and weather-resistant, and 2) the vibrant blue is easy to locate at the playground. (It also comes in pink, a fact that made my wife throw up in her mouth.)" [I can say definitively that we will not buy the kid a pink mitt. While she did watch her first Yankees homerun this weekend, we put her to bed before she had to watch her first Yankee stomping by Baltimore.]
Jason has a hands-on review of their stroller, the Jeep Liberty Limited Urban Terrain. One thing I didn't realize--I've mentioned the Jeep, but haven't tried it out--it has built-in speakers for your portable audio device. Jason's net: the Jeep's a good ride, especially on cobblestones, but it's big and doesn't really fold down very well.
