Britax B-Ready Now At SmartMomma!

Sunday, July 11th, 2010

Although we really like the Baby Jogger City Select for twins or siblings, this new stroller from Britax called the B-Ready is pretty darn cool too! Deanna and I put it together last week and were able to play around with it last week and we both really like it. The color is a beautiful emerald green of our floor model and the new Britax Chaperone car seat that goes with it is impressive as well. The last Chaperone model was too big to fit in many cars and strollers, but the new Chaperone is noticably more compact with awesome side impact protection for your child and the famous rebound bar. It also comes with a foam piece that you can use with the car seat on newborns to make it fit smaller babies better, starting at 4 lbs, which makes it a great option for a preemie!

Britax has not shipped us the accessories yet for the Britax B-Ready stroller, but we expect to get those soon. The stroller does come with an extra shopping basket, a parent console for drinks and keys/cellphone, an infant car seat adaptor for the Chaperone seat, and a rain cover. We thought that was pretty cool!

Product Description

The new B-READY stroller from BRITAX is a versatile, modular stroller that can convert from a travel system to a single or in-line double stroller. With 14 different configurations the B-READY stroller is adaptable to fit your needs. Featuring a reversible top seat with a weight capacity of 55 lbs, the B-READY introduces an industry first: a non-rethread, adjustable, 5-point harness system. An extra large canopy, 3-position recline, adjustable leg rest, and full suspension will ensure the traveling comfort of little ones. As an in-line tandem stroller, the second seat is certainly not an afterthought. With 4 recline positions, the second seat is appropriate from birth to 35 lbs. Perhaps most impressive is the fact that the second seat does not need to be removed to fold the stroller. A single step locks and unlocks both rear wheels. Caregivers will further appreciate the adjustable handle height and over-sized storage basket that is accessible from all four sides. A drink holder, rain cover, and CHAPERONE CLICK & GO infant car seat adapters are included.

We now have a floor model, so please come into the store and play with it!

Sophie the Giraffe Makes Her Debut

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

About Sophie the Giraffe

Sophie the Giraffe

Sophie the Giraffe was conceived by Monsieur Rampeau, who was an expert in transforming sap from the Hevea tree using the rotational moulding of rubber as a toy-making concept. He came up with the idea of designing a toy giraffe, sensing that such an exotic wildlife figure would be the first in the market, and its size and shape would be ideal for the baby’s hands to grasp and fit the baby’s small mouths. Sophie the Giraffe, who looks exactly the same as the day she was ‘born’, went into production on May 25th, Saint Sophie’s day, hence her name.

Sophie was an immediate success in France. Young mothers saw straightaway that Sophie was a must-have for their babies when the first signs of teething appeared. By simple word of mouth, the little Giraffe’s fame spread. From then on, generation upon generation of children in Europe, have come to love Sophie & her happy sound.

Sophie is still traditionally produced today, by Vulli, which is based in Rumilly in the Haute-Savoie Region of France. She is made from 100% natural rubber derived from the sap of the Hevea Tree. The process of creating her involves more than 14 manual operations and is still a secret, jealously guarded by the company.

So what makes Sophie the Giraffe such a success? This is baby’s first toy, and stimulates each of his senses from the age of 3 months.

Sight:

At the age of 3 months, a baby’s eyesight is still limited and can only make out high contrasts. The dark and contrasting, attention-catching spots all over Sophie the Giraffe’s body provides visual stimulation and she soon becomes a familiar and reassuring object for baby.

Hearing:

Sophie the Giraffe squeaks when pressed and keeps baby amused and stimulates his hearing. In later months, this helps baby understand the link between cause and effect.

Taste:

Sophie the Giraffe is made of 100% natural rubber and food paint and is completely safe to chew, just like a feeding bottle teat.

Touch:

Her soft texture and numerous chewable parts (ears, horns, legs etc) make her perfect for soothing baby’s sore gums during teething.

Smell:

The scent of natural rubber from the Hevea tree makes Sophie the Giraffe very special and easy for your baby to identify amid the other toys.

Easy to grip:

Sophie the Giraffe’s shape and size are perfect for baby’s small hands. She is very light, and her long neck and legs are easy for baby to grasp, even in his early days.
