Hot Wheels for Mother’s Day: Babesta & Mercedes of Manhattan Giveaway!

 mercedes benz of manhattan and babesta givea
Babesta teamed up with Mercedes of Manhattan to make someone a pretty sweet Mother’s Day! Test drive a Mercedes GLA (the super cute compact SUV) at Mercedes of Manhattan (53rd & 11th), between now and Thursday May 14, and enter to win some hand picked awesomeness for a city family (all of which fits easily in the trunk, making for a very stylish set up!) Included are our top picks for a city family:  the Van Gogh x Bugaboo Bee 3 stroller, a Baby Bjorn travel light crib, the Nuna Pipa car seat and the Forma Pack & Go diaper bag with a Chevron Pronto portable changer by Skip Hop!  Even if you don’t win, enjoy a special offer at the Babesta stores for test driving the car (Mercedes will be giving it out!). We loved the GLA – it’s stylish and smart for the city-ample room yet easy to park.
Happy Mother’s Day & Good Luck!!

A Toasty Trot around Tribeca

Screen Shot 2014-12-01 at 9.00.32 AM

For anyone who missed our Toasty in Tribeca photo scavenger hunt (it was a bit rainy, so it’s OK!) we wanted to continue the fun. For the rest of the week we are offering free kids’ WarmMuffs for scooters for those who complete the hunt, while supplies last. We have 6 additional pairs (size small in pink, black,  silver and blue; size Large in neon pink and blue) and challenge you to read this poem, hit each of the stops and send photo proof that you solved our riddle. We’ll also offer 20% off any 7AM items to participants. Good luck!!! End of the week=end of the concert so get scooting!


We’ll got a little hunt that we want to be a hoot

That brings you through the nabe

You might even get to scoot.

Stop 1: The first stop is the farthest, I’m so sorry to say

But I think you’ll really like it so it’s time to go OK?

West Broadway is your PATH

Straight south til you go no more

Down the moving stairway,

Past Candy Crush you’ll find a door

Open and behold y’all

It’s like Moby’s core

A white rib-like hall

Completely washed ashore.

**If it’s really busy don’t despair,

And save the escalator ride

We’ll also accept the ribs open air

That we can abide.

Stop 2: This one’s pretty easy

and it’s not too far away

Head back up to Murray

and walk on towards Broadway

You’ll see a spot where books reside

In big amounts for sure

The perfect thing to warm up with

Through an orange door

This place should be quiet

So don’t make ne’er a noise

Just quickly snap a photo

Outside or in, with poise

Stop 3: Walk to the park the mayor hangs

Outside of NY’s haute house

And look for a dark and furry friend

Who’s bigger than a mouse

It also has a bushy tail

And tiny little paws

It’s nuts about nuts & photo ops

So let’s all give an Awwww!

Stop 4: Now you’re heading back to start

To Church and Warren go

Before the corner rest at a sign

Where all zen people know

It tells you to “warm up” with them

So quickly take a shot

But save your downward dog and cat

For when time you have got

Stop 5:

Now go back to the spot

With the headphoned orange sphere

We’ll be waiting to say congrats

As soon as you get here.

Pose for one snap wearing muffs

For a scooter or a stroll

And we’ll celebrate your great mind

That solved the clues and rhymes we doled.

Celebrating Life on the Fly at Babesta & Bugaboo’s “Bee in the City” party!

We’re throwing a bash with our fave stroller brand, Bugaboo, to celebrate living life on the fly (and living a fly life)!  We’re debuting the latest installment of Bubaboo’s video series, this time detailing the urban adventure of stylist and blogger Latonya Staubs, her family and her Bugaboo Bee. Latonya will share some of her fave go-tos in the city, DJ Neil will spin some rad tunes, we’ll all eat some yummy cupcakes and enjoy. Cheers to city moms!!

We are big fans of the Bee, as it happens, as Babesta is curated for a city child, so it only make sense that a light weight, agile, easy to fold and high quality (& super stylish) stroller would be the guest of honor.

We’ll even be doing some stroller cleaning to those who pre-sign up for it (make an appointment ahead of time by calling 646 290 5508).

The deets: Come to Babesta Cribz, 56 Warren Street, March 6, from 1:00-3:00pm.

Also (as if this wasn’t enough) a Bugaboo Bee & accessory will be raffled off!!!!
