While walking can be a lot of fun, sometimes it feels more like a chore. Often, this happens when the weather doesn’t cooperate with us. No matter how well a little one is wrapped up, rain or wind can make a stroller ride a less than pleasant experience. Stroller covers can help a lot, but not all of them provide optimal protection. Korean brand Manito has offered high quality, innovative stroller shields since 1999. They founded their American division, Manito USA, in 2012 to bring their convenient line of products to families on this side of the Pacific.
While a shoulder ride is a thrill for the child, it’s not always so for the grown up involved. Many parents feel uneasy having their child ride on their shoulders because of safety concerns; it seems frighteningly easy for a squirmy youngster to slip off sideways or fall backwards suddenly. There’s also the issue of physical discomfort for the parent. As children grow, carrying them — particularly for extended periods — can be a serious strain on a parent’s back, shoulders and arms. Saddle Baby helps lessen the strain by providing a new, more convenient way for both parents and kids to enjoy the ride.

Feeding milestones are some of the most watched and anticipated from parents during the early years. Once the teeth pop in and little gums start chewing, it becomes a whole new cleanup ballgame pretty quickly. Suddenly all the food piled on plates for hungry toddlers is falling on the floor, sticking to walls, and coating the table in grime. Developed by Amy Chandler, The Cibo is designed to keep crumbs and other goo in their place —- or placemat as it were. This little silicone mat can hold big messes with its crumb-catching lip underneath two friendly google eyes.
