ZipBinParents know that sometimes messiness is the mother of invention. Do little toy collections spread out in various rooms of the house or your car? What if your toy bin unzipped to a play mat and zipped back up, confining the toys? That would take the work out of having fun! VIP gift bag

Keep Close Child Tracker from Safety 1st helps you keep your child within close range. The child unit clips easily to a belt or shoe and the parent unit immediately alerts you if your child wanders out of the 80 foot range. Genius!

Alphabotz Decoder cardsImagine . . . Instead of formulas and worksheets, children get to unlock secrets and solve mysteries. Instead of rote memorization or rules, children become fascinated with character stories, songs, and stats which just happen to reinforce beginning reading skills. Instead of contrived educational text, children embark on adventures in the magical Kingdom of Alpha where they break codes, solve problems, tell stories, perform and pretend. Instead of one learning method for all children, a combination of strategies is utilized that engages the senses and accommodates different learning styles. Presenting VIP gift bag Alphabotz, a multimedia program for children ages 3 and up, designed by a parent and teacher to engage and build confidence in beginning readers by personifying the abstract concept that letters equal sounds, sounds build words, and words tell amazing stories. Through a proven combination of teaching strategies including phonemic awareness, phonics, sight words, and language experience, a cast of fun, captivating characters provides useful tools for unlocking the secrets to this code adults call reading. Each Alphabotz character represents a sound in the English language, and wears its identifying letter/sound on itsAlphabotz chest. These cute, colorful robots have their own special personalities and abilities. Children share adventures with the Alphabotz that incorporate fun, secret formulas for breaking codes, surprises, special needs, humor and love, and just happen to learn about the joy and power of reading along the way. Applause please! And, we're happy to report that Alphabotz just arrived in DFW and are available at Toy's Unique, 5600 W. Lover's Lane in Dallas.

TinyTongsWith three children under the age of five, Mompreneur Carys was looking for a way to make meal time less stressful, less messy and more enjoyable for her children. After watching more food land on the floor than in her children’s mouths, she knew there had to be a better way for them to eat. She had seen my small children usingTinyTongs tongs in their preschool to help develop their coordination for writing and thought it would be a great way to eat as well. Her search for suitable tongs for children to eat with came up empty. So...she began a year long journey to bring tinytongs to the dining table. Kudos to Carys!

Britax Chaperone Infant CarrierMoms have been fans of Britax car seats for years and we are thrilled that Britax now protects your children from Birth to Belt. The Britax Chaperone infant carrier offers True Side Impact Protection (distributes crash forces, shields from vehicle intrusion, contains the head and body, and keeps the head, neck and spine "in true" or aligned, to limit injury), Quick-Adjust Head Restraint & No-Rethread Harness (easily adjust the harness shoulder height and head restraint without disassembling the harness) and Anti-Rebound Bar (stabilizes child seat by minimizing rotational forces associated with front and rear collisions). Its Stroller Compatible Design works with Britax Chaperone strollers and other major stroller brands when used with Britax adapter strap. You can easily adjust the harness height without having to re-thread the harness straps, and the seat has an Easy-to-Install Base with LATCH Connector Storage. It has a 30-pound Weight Capacity, Height Adjustment Knob (on base) for proper seat angle and positioning, Plush, Premium Cover Set with matching belly pad for extra comfort, Easy-to-Read Level Indicators (on base) that provide quick reference for proper angle of recline, an Easy-to-Install Seat-to-Base Design that self-guides carrier into a proper locked position, Ergonomic Carry-Handle designed to contour to your forearm to allow for more comfortable carrying of your child in carrier, an Extra-Large Canopy that blocks wind, rain and harmful UV rays from baby’sBritax Marathon CS sensitive skin, a Front Harness Adjuster that provides effortless front adjustment when loosening the harness system, Built-in Lock-Off(s) that secure the vehicle seat belt so that the child seat does not move more than one inch side-to-side or front-to-back at the belt path, High Density Comfort Foam that provides an extra layer of padding to gently cushion the child, an Energy-Absorbing Foam Liner (EPS) that absorbs and distributes crash forces, Premium, Push-Button Lower LATCH Connectors for a quick, simple, and tight installation and a Five-Point Harness makes contact with the strongest parts of the body. Britax definitely did not leave anything out!

The Marathon CS convertible car seat combines the Click & Safe® Snug Harness Indicator with the safety, comfort and ease-of-use features that led the original Marathon to become a favorite of caregivers. The Click & Safe provides a solution to the leading misuse of child safety seats — dangerously loose harness straps — by giving an audible affirmation when the harness straps are within the proper range of snugness. The seat also features Britax’s revolutionary side impact protection which uses deep side walls with energy-absorbing foam, to shield from vehicle intrusion, contain the head and body, and distribute crash forces in side impact collisions. This is critical because approximately one in four of all motor vehicle crashes that involve children occur from the side, and these result in a significantly higher injury rate than frontal or rear impacts, according to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Britax Parkway SG
The newest child safety seat from Britax® — the Parkway® SG belt positioning booster — introduces the SecureGuard™ Seat Belt Anchor. The SecureGuard — also known as an anti-submarining clip — helps prevent the child from sliding under the lap belt (or submarining) during a collision, reducing the risk of abdominal injury. The Parkway SG easily converts to a backless booster while maintaining the SecureGuard feature, and fits children from 40 pounds and 38 inches up to 120 pounds and 63 inches.The advanced safety features of the Parkway SG also help absorb energy in a crash, offering maximum safety to children. When used with the seat back, the Parkway SG provides Britax True Side Impact Protection® — a combination of deep side walls and head wings made from energy-absorbent material and an adjustable head restraint — which transfers energy away from the child during a side impact crash. Approximately one in four of all motor vehicle crashes that involve children occur from the side, and these crashes result in a significantly higher injury rate than front or rear crashes, according to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. True Side Impact Protection, combined with the SecureGuard, helps to ensure that children are properly positioned in the event of a collision, reducing the risk of life-threatening injuries.
Valencia Crib by Simmons KidsDramatically simple in its design, the Valencia Crib by Simmons Kids compliments the nursery with its sleek and elegant detailing on posts, rails and feet.

Naturepedic Twin Size Organic MattressNaturepedic certified organic Mattress and Bedding Company was founded by parents, grandparents and scientists. When environmental engineer Barry Cik, went searching for a suitable organic baby crib mattress in anticipation of his first grandchild, he was unable to find an organic baby crib mattress that was also waterproof. "... if the mattress were to get wet, it would grow mold and fungus without any effective way to clean it.” Barry, together with his two sons, set out to found Naturepedic, an organic and non-toxic baby crib mattress company dedicated to providing parents with a better alternative - the first and only waterproof organic baby crib mattress designed with a safe food grade polyethylene cover, and which eliminates the potentially harmful chemicals with which Barry was so familiar. The company has since introduced larger sizes for the rest of the family: twin, full and queen. Made with Organic Cotton Filling, Orthopedic Innerspring, and with a Premium Organic Waterproof Cover, the Naturepedic Mattress offers a more natural, fire-safe, hypoallergenic, and non-toxic alternative for parents. All Naturepedic mattresses are manufactured to provide long lasting heirloom quality workmanship. Attendees of the upcoming Best & Hottest Products event will experience the quality of Naturepedic’s NaturepedicTwin Size Organic Mattress.
Sage Creek Organic LayetteOrganic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. The benefit to the consumer, especially our babies, is the softness and quality that only organic cotton can provide. It is truly unmatched and one of the top reasons people choose organic cotton for their delicate baby's skin. The cotton that is grown in conventional ways is compromised and weakened by the chemicals used in growing, processing and dying of the cotton, all these things break the fiber down and create a weaker, inferior cotton garment. That is why you get a softer, stronger, better cotton using organic. Organic is a great choice for you and an important choice for our environment.Sage Creek And Sage Creek's line of organic baby clothes come in a variety of fashionable prints and colors.
Little rocking horses, mini bears and charming circles adorn this organicSage Creek Flight School Toddler Layette set for infants from newborn until three months.

Toddler boys will be ready to soar with the organic "Flight School" zip hoodie sweatshirt and pants.

Crane Cool Mist Humidifiers

With all the recent uncertainty surrounding cold medicines, it is no surprise that pediatricians strongly recommend cool mist humidifiers to relieve a baby and young child’s nasal congestion as a safe alternative. Humidifiers also protect from dry skin, chapped lips, and nose bleeds. Kudos to Crane for creating the perfect Children's Cool Mist Humidifier to complement any nursery. The Crane ultrasonic humidifier works by using high-frequency vibrations into a very fine mist and sending it into the air without heating the air, so there is no danger of steam burns because the water is cool. The humidifier's one gallon water tank runs up to 11 hours and can be set to automatically turn off when the tank is empty. We love theCrane whimsical animal designs, which include the above duck, cow and pig. Style and function.

Between spilled drinks, sticky snack crumbs and defective diapers we dread uninstalling the seat to get that cover in the wash. But we dread the saggy fit of car seat covers just as much.
