Spingtime Is Almost Here!!!

Spring is on its way and its time to get ready for the sun.  It’s important to protect sensitive skin.  Cover up your little ones with swimwear that does double duty.  You get a built in swim diaper (required at all public pools) and sunscreen in the fabric!  All our mix and match items from trunks, to hats, to rash guards have UPF 50+in the fabric. 

For those spots that can’t be covered there are sun blocks in different sizes and types of application.  Need wipes or sticks for those hard to apply areas?  Want an economical family size?  Need a little higher SPF for extra fair skim? You’ll be sure to find the one that fits your needs.

Check Out The UPPAbaby Vista!

We love the UPPAbaby Vista! This feature rich customizable stroller is extremely versatile. 

The easy one-step-fold with or without the seat attached makes it quick to stow.  Parents love the elevated seat/bassinet height that brings your little one closer to you.  The rubber coated four wheel suspension will get you over steep hills and rough terrains.  It’s adjustable height handle bar means both you and your partner can stroll comfortably.

Need to customize your stroller to fit your family’s needs?  UPPAbaby has you covered.  Adapters for infant car seats allow you to turn your stroller into a travel system; easy for air travel or a day of errands.  Is your family growing and now you need a stroller to seat multiple little ones?  The Vista quickly converts allowing you to push up to three children.  Add the Rumble seat that holds up to 35lbs; effortlessly turning your system into a double stroller.  Continue to expand your system with the piggyBack wheel board attachment and a third child up to 50lbs can ride along as well.

New to the line is the optional Bassinet Stand.  Make your UPPAbaby Vista do even more for you at home.  This sturdy stand is available in white or brown to accommodate any décor.  The easy one step fold allows you to conveniently store it away when not in use.  And the bassinet snaps in just as it does with your stroller frame!

If all this wasn’t enough to turn your head we’re happy to announce that the already fabulous selection of colors has expanded by two.  New to the line is Slate and Wheat!

Were always excited to give hands on demos, stop by and test one out!
