thinksport LIVESTRONG SunscreenthinkbabyChildren over the age of 6 months and anyone who will be exposed to sunlight should use sunscreen. Yet the majority of sunscreens currently on the market are full of questionable ingredients and known carcinogens. Simply looking at the ingredients you’ll quickly realize you don’t recognize any of them. Many existing sunscreens have been brought to market with little concern for their safety. Not only do ingredients in sunscreen interact with skin, but data shows after application of lotions, some of the same chemicals can be detected in the bloodstream. Most people wear sunscreen to reduce the chance of developing cancer, so why apply something that could potentially increase this risk? This question has unfortunately left many people moving away from using sunscreen at all... until thinkbaby and thinksport LIVESTRONG developed a new sunscreen that is made from minerals (not chemicals), is highly effective, falls into the highest category for water resistance and has a sensible SPF 50+ rating.

Dr. Brown's Bottle

Dr. Brown'sDr. Brown’s baby bottles are favored by moms and dads because the Patented Internal Vent System helps reduce feeding problems like colic. Now, a university study has determined that Dr. Brown bottles provide important vitamin benefits to your baby, as well because the vacuum-free bottle design provides feeding similar to breastfeeding, thereby preserving three important nutrients for infants–vitamins A, C and E– which generally decline during the course of other bottle feedings.

Joovy Room² Ultralight JoovyAt just over 21 pounds, the Joovy Room² Ultralight offers 9 square feet of room but packs special designs features to lighten the load. The lightness is due to the tapered design of the side rails; the top rails are 4 inches narrower than the bottom rails. This design significantly increases the difficulty of climbing out of the playard and makes the Room² Ultralight super stable. The fact that the Ultralight uses the ground as its floorboard decreases the weight and increases stability too. It has an awesome, super comfortable memory foam mattress and a Joovy 100% brushed cotton sheet. The Ultralight has two easy folding features, it can be quickly folded in half or super compact for travel. When folded in half, it takes up only 3.5 square feet of storage space… you can put it next to the wall, underneath the bed, behind the door or in a closet and it unsnaps back to full size in seconds!

The lightweight frame makes controlling the bike much easier for kids, unlike the heavy wooden and steel versions. The tires are pneumatic (air) and refillable.

The dual action pump inflates the GoCrib in seconds, and the pressure gauge tells you when it's ready to use. When packing, the GoCrib valves lock open to make deflation a snap, and the Crib can be stuffed into its backpack just like a sleeping bag. No folding or rolling. It's that simple. We have added the GoCrib Sunshade, the perfect addition for summertime activities (let's be honest, summer is already here in North Texas!) to provide shade and protection for your little one. It has the highest sun protection rating possible (UPF 55+) to reduce sun exposure to your baby’s skin and sensitive eyes.

My Little Pony and Friendship Express Train from HasbroHasbroTake an enchanting trip on-board the new My Little Pony Friendship Express Train from Hasbro. Ponies can hop on the colorful caboose and tour through town with ease thanks to the “magically” motorized engine car, complete with a snug seat for Pinkie Pie to play conductor! There are many tours to take as it can change its course at any time; girls simply click together the seven lavender tracks in different configurations, depending on the destination for the day. Train set includes Pinkie Pie pony figure, 7-piece track, motorized engine, railroad cart and sticker labels. Requires two "AA" batteries, not included. We’ve paired it with My Little Pony So Soft Rainbow Dash. This is one hungry pony, and she needs her “mommy” to feed her! Girls can feed their cuddly pony friend from her very own bottle, bowl and spoon, and Rainbow Dash will kick her legs to let you know she’s happy. Rainbow Dash speaks fun phrases to get her “mommy’s” attention, and can’t wait for playtime! Includes two “AAA” demo batteries.Dizzy Dancers Dizzy Twirlin’ Dance Studio from Hasbro
