I was too far behind on my feedreader to notice, and MDD was too modest: his ABC Kids Expo reports for Babble's Droolicious gearblog are rockin'. Here's a quick take on some highlights: The Zigo Leader converts from a front-load, kid-carrying bike to a standalone stroller or jogger, and a standalone bike. It has a nylon covered pod for 1-2 kids that looks like the Cougar Chariot. They call themselves "the first mom- or dad-powered family transportation vehicle," which naturally prompts MDD to wonder, "Why hasn't anyone done this before?" To which Zigo should answer, "Well technically, Bakfiets has done it in Holland, and TrioBike has done it in Denmark; we're special because we're doing it here."
A Strollometer AND a cellphone drawer?? MDD got a photo of the dashboard on the Maclaren GT LX! $900!
There are details and photos of Netto Collection's new Frenched up Louis crib and changing table. C'est fou! Completement fou! We are amused, and so will return to this subject later.
Sometimes a publicist demonstrates her greatness by knowing what not to tell me about. And even though we've been emailing this past week, the cone of silence Bugaboo's publicist put me in regarding their new fabric-centric colabo with the Monkey People, aka the dreaded and over-exposed Paul Frank, means she's a freakin' genius.
Holy crap, microwaveable stuffed animals?? Why didn't anyone think of this before?
