What's going on at Giggle.com?

giggle - April 27, 2018

As most people know, baby store Giggle suddenly closed without warning last year. Their website was taken down and an FAQ was posted letting people know what to do if they still had leftover gift cards.

But for the past month, this weird message screencapped above has replaced the FAQ. I tried emailing the address listed but got no response. Anyone know what's going on? I hope the page wasn't hacked.

New Maclaren Wing Knit Stroller

maclaren - April 25, 2018

Gear up for the warmer seasons with the Wing Knit, a sporty buggy that marries functionality and aesthetics.

Sporting a woven knit construction produced in a trio of hues, the stroller provides greater flexibility- a nimble offense for slipping through the crowds; support- a dependable defense of Maclaren safety and breathability- for those warmer days on the move.

The seamless design not only provides a more stable and comfortable ride for both operator and passenger, the streamlined production method minimizes waste and impact on the environment – making it a win-win for all.

The Britax Nanotex Collection

britax - April 20, 2018

Britax is launching an exclusive collection soon using gray Nanotex fabric. 

Nanotex is a pretty awesome invention. It changes the fiber on a molecular level, becoming a part of the fiber that enables the textile to permanently resist spills and stains. It really is amazing and it really is chemistry – Nanotex changes the surface energy of the fabric, making it resistant. The lower the surface energy, the more resistant the textile is.

Yes, you read that right. Spill and stain resistant material on baby gear! And Nanotex is also naturally fire retardant and free of PFOS, PFOA, heavy metals, phenols, phthalates, odor & skin sanitizers. Furthermore, the Nanotex chemistry does not leach, by design, so nothing can transfer from the textile to skin.

Coming in May.

With its three sturdy arms for 360° of support, high backrest and spacious frame, you can keep your baby securely in place while freeing up both of your hands to scrub and play. The Sure & Secure Suction Cups on each of the seat’s arms creates stability and allows for easy set-up, removal and storage. The Summer Infant® My Bath Seat is JPMA Certified, conforms to the ASTM F1967 Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Infant Bath Seats and is recommended for children from 5 to 10 months. IT IS NOT FOR USE AS A SAFETY DEVICE, AND PARENTS MUST ALWAYS KEEP THEIR BABY WITHIN REACH.
