get ‘em while they’re hot!


We here at giggle Chevy Chase have always loved the UPPAbaby Vista! It’s a fantastic stroller system and includes both a bassinet and a stroller seat! It offers great value and style, while being functional and fashionable!

And now, we’re super excited to present the Infant SnugSeat from UPPAbaby.

With this SnugSeat, your baby has more support and stability with the UPPAbaby Vista. This seat insert gently cradles your baby’s neck and back while strolling. It’s made of plush organic soybean and  has a cotton liner. It’s comfortable and cozy! Plus, it’s reversible and machine washable!

During the month of June (or until supplies last), we are offering a free  Infant SnugSeat with your UPPAbaby Vista purchase! So, act quickly! Come down to Chevy Chase and take the UPPAbaby Vista for a test drive!

Puppies and Babies: Meet Charlie Brown

Charlie BrownAfter much discussion about the value of getting a pet for our only child — and much hesitation, given our busy, urban lifestyle — our threesome is now a foursome.

Last week we took the plunge and added a new family member: a 3-month-old, 3 lb., 3 oz. Havanese we have affectionately named Charlie Brown after his chocolate brown spots.

Whew! It will come as no surprise to anyone who has one, but puppies are a lot of work. I’m reminded how important it is to evolution that puppies (like babies) are so cute! And, like babies, teething puppies need things to chew on.

 

We’ve had a lot of giggle customers over the years buy our cute, plush, chew-friendly toys and teethers for dogs. It’s not something I ever really got. But boy, do I now! Even though Charlie Brown’s a dog, I’d prefer to give him healthy and natural chew toys, and when they’re cute it helps reduce the feeling of added clutter.

So far, my favorite baby products turned chew toys are the 100% natural rubber Natrusutten Teether and the Whoozit, which Charlie loves as much as every child who’s made the friendly and colorful toy a best seller.

At giggle, we like to sell products that have been tested, and I’m happy to report that Charlie Brown has put both toys through rigorous wear-and-tear testing!
