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.

Starting Solids?!?

Whether you’re purchasing your little one’s food, preparing it from scratch or anything in between, giggle has you covered.

As simple as it seems, a good bowl goes a long way.  Our Baby Bowl and Spoon Set offer a strong suction to keep it where it belongs, and dinner off your floor and walls.  The soft silicone spoon is easy on baby’s tender gums.

Speaking of containing the mess Mimi the Sardine offers a selection of wipeable mats and bibs.  There are placemats to protect your table, Splish Splat Mats to cover the floor, and bibs for even the messiest of eaters.  All are made of organic cotton with an easy to wipe, eco-friendly coating.

For our parents planning to make their own food the Beaba Babycook is a must see.  Steam, blend, reheat, and defrost all in one compact easy to clean unit.  You can use it to puree a little of what your eating for dinner, or freeze a batch of individual servings in their handy Multiportions Food Storage Trays. 

New to giggle! The Babycook Bag makes it easy for you to take your Babycook on the road with you!

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!

Eeek! It’s Cold Season Again!!!

We all know it’s important to keep things clean to prevent the spread of colds.  But we also worry about the chemicals our families are coming into contact with.  giggle has you covered with our full line of Better Basics cleaning products to help keep your home and family happy and healthy.  Our entire line is plant based, making it non toxic and biodegradable.

The most effective way to fight colds is to keep those hands clean.  Washing your hands with soap and warm water throughout the day and for at least 30 seconds is your best defense.  Our hand soap comes in a pump that is easy for even your toddler to use.  And because it’s foaming, a little goes a long way making it a great value.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

On the go or can’t get to a sink?  Try our hand sanitizers in a full size pump or keep the travel size in your bag.  Our hand sanitizer is alcohol free and kills 99.9% of germs.

Have questions about our products or want to try a sample?  Stop by our store to get a demo!

Rub A Dub Time for Fun in the Tub

Bath time is an important part of the day for you and your baby.  It not only provides great opportunities for bonding and learning, but also soothes fussing little ones and helps to establish a sleep inducing night time routine.  No matter what stage of development your little one has reached giggle has you both covered.  Looking for an easy and safe solution for washing up?  Try the wash pod; the up right bucket design is space saving and because it uses less water, it’s easy on the environment too! Let them explore an entire new world of sensory exploration with nesting cups for floating and pouring water.  Or tickle them with squirts of water from one of our Bath Squirters collections.   Baby will love getting all soapy and clean with our refreshing California Baby and Mustela Bath Lines and Better Basics organic cotton linens.  Delight them with our Duck Wash Mitt while keeping a good hold off those slippery arms and legs.  Then bundle them up all warm and cozy with one of our Hooded Towels or Wrap Kimonos.  Who’s ready for a bath?
