Happy Meals

If your New Year’s resolutions involve helping the whole family brush up on healthy eating habits, we at giggle are here to help!

Healthy eating starts early, and if you find yourself in need of some inspiration, we have a wonderful selection of cookbooks to please even the tiniest of discerning palates. We love Starting Solids by Annabel Karmel; chock-full of advice, it’s a great introduction to the world of weaning.The BabyCook is essential for parents who want to make their own purees. An all-in-one appliance, the BabyCook allows you to steam and blend purees for your little one! If you’re strapped for time, you can make your meals ahead of time, pop the mix into the fabulous freezer tray, and use the BabyCook to reheat and defrost pre-made purees!

Have your child be a part of family mealtime by bringing them to the table in style with the Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair. The sleek, tray-less design is meant to be pulled right up to the table, allowing baby to enjoy their meals right next to the rest of the family. The chair grows with your child; it holds over 250 lbs, meaning it can be used well into their teen years!

We also have a great selection of bibs, spoons, bowls, and mats to help make every meal a “happy meal”! Stop by today to baby-ready your kitchen!

Good giggle Giving

Reusable totes are all the rage, and what’s not to love? They’re an eco-friendly option for hauling holiday loot (Santa is ahead of the trend!) and are cute enough to give as gifts.

giggle has teamed up with Orphans International Worldwide to make a good thing even better: all the proceeds from our reusable giggle Dot Bag benefit Orphans International Worldwide. Your $5 donation helps orphaned children grow into strong citizens of the world as well as reduce your use of paper shopping bags. Our giggle Dot Bag is altogether a wonderful way to give back this holiday season.

Raindrops Keep Fallin’

Rainy weather getting you down? Stop by giggle and weather-proof your stroller to keep the rainy day blues away!

Unfortunately, not all strollers come with a rain shield. Bob, City Mini, and Orbit are all sold separately. These life-saving accessories allow you to keep your little one snug and dry while you’re out running errands.

If you’re worried about your kiddo catching cold while out and about, Bundle Mes and Footmuffs are fantastic alternatives to thick, heavy jackets and piling on the blankets. They’re like a sleeping bag for your stroller: they zip around your baby, keeping all the cold air out, and don’t interefere with your stroller harness. The best part? They can’t be kicked off like a blanket, so there’s no chance of them getting tangled in the wheels.

Stop by giggle Corte Madera and get your stroller winter-ready!

September means Safety!

Cautious parents looking for the best ways to keep baby safe? Stop by giggle Corte Madera to learn all about our favourite safety products!

This week we’re highlighting an old favourite: swaddle blankets! There’s a reason these cozy comforters have been popular with parents for generations: swaddled babies sleep better. Wrapping your little one up nice and tight in a stretchy cotton blanket mimics the secure feeling of being in the womb. The benefits to swaddling are endless: swaddled babies tend to stay asleep on their backs, are more likely to self-soothe, and are less likely to be woken by their Moro or “startle” reflex. Most importantly, swaddled babies are less likely to experience SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).

Our pick for swaddles? giggle Better Basics organic swaddles, of course! These marvelous swaddles come in a pack of two and are super- stretchy, making sure that you have the tightest swaddle possible.

Our parents also rave about the oh so popular Aden and Anais blankets. These light-weight cotton muslin swaddles are wonderful multi-taskers: they swaddle wonderfully and are light enough to act as a sun shade or stroller blanket. Plus, the patterns are too cute!

If you’re need a quick tutorial on how to swaddle or just need a refresher on infant safety, stop by giggle Corte Madera for fun product demos!

Summer Swelter

The Bay Area’s Indian summer is heating up and as the temperatures climb into the low 90′s (!!!), families are finding creative ways to beat the heat.

If sweltering late-summer temperatures have you running for the pool, giggle favourite site Marin Mommies has you covered with their extensive list of Marin Community Pools. Most have free swim hours and reduced drop-in rates for families.

Your little one isn’t a water baby? Have no fear, giggle’s got you covered. If you’re staying at home, where it’s cool and air conditioned, we have a great selection of toddler toys and DVDs to keep little ones entertained. Pick up a drum set for your little rock star, shake things up with a mini orchestra, and make your own jam with our new conga set! Looking for quieter activities? I suggest having a tea party or getting the whole family involved in putting together a giant floor puzzle!

No matter how you choose to keep cool, remember to stay hydrated and have fun!

Back to School with Skip Hop!

The weather is warming up as the summer is winding down. Believe it or not, the start of school is just around the corner!

If your child is dreading the return to the classroom, our adorable new Skip Hop backpacks and lunch bags will be sure to bring a smile to their face!

Perfect for little students aged 3 and up, these sweet puppy or owl packs are BPA, phthalate, and PVC-free! The main compartment is roomy enough to hold crayons and letters for parents and the front pocket is insulated for snacks. These cool bags are easy to wipe off, but if your tot is especially good at making messes — have no fear!  You can pop the bag in the washing machine.

The equally fabulous matching lunch bags can be attached to the backpack, so you don’t have to worry about them getting lost! The large main compartment is insulated to keep food at the perfect temperature, and is big enough to hold our ThinkBaby feeding system!

 See you down by the school yard!
