Ever, Jane: New Kickstarter Campaign

Ever, Jane

With a 9 year old at home, it’s no surprise that dinnertime convos often revolve around the world of MMOGS. I’m just not totally able to wrap my head around Minecraft and Roblox (though I do appreciate the retro graphics!)  But I just stumbled upon this new Kickstarter project, a Jane Austin based MMOG that’s filled with gossip, intrigue and Regency period dress. I thought it was a pretty cool idea to take classic literature into the immersive world of these games, and am going to give it a shot. It’s sort of a 19th century upper crust Real Housewives online. (cringe, love). If they meet their goal, the game will feature quests, families, mini games and lion’s share of intrigue. They’re 1/3 of their way there on their goal of $100,000. Bravo?  http://kck.st/19DPaVY.

Clockwise from the left: Babysitter and Coco Bouncer

This week in the ring we introduce two of our favorite contenders for the Lightweight/Travel Bouncer Title.  Let’s meet the competitors, shall we?

IN THIS CORNER:  BLOOM’S COCO GO BOUNCER!

With three easy recline positions – fully flat, semi-upright, and fully upright – this bouncer with it’s two speed concealed vibration unit weighs in at 7.5lbs.  For families on the go, the Coco Go includes an easy travel bag.  The fabric components are machine washable, the wood elements are birch in three beautiful finishes, and the anti-skid base includes front and rear retractable feet.  Suitable for newborn to 20lbs, this bouncer is certainly a strong contender for the title.

IN THE OTHER CORNER: BABY BJORN’S BABYSITTER!

Whether for play, rest, or sleep, this bouncer transforms your child’s movements into a soothing rocking motion to refine balance and motor skills while keeping your hands free.  This bouncer is also ready to travel, easily folding into a compact travel position and weighing in at just 5lbs.  Developed in close collaboration with pediatricians, the Babysitter features an ergonomic design to properly support your child – from newborn up to about 2 years – and distribute their weight evenly.  The Babysitter is made of machine-washable, guaranteed child safe fabrics and the reversible fabrics and harness allow you to create several color schemes.

Now that you’ve been introduced to the competitors, LET THE GAMES BEGIN! (In the comments of course, let us know what you think!)

Friday Face-Off: Bugaboo vs. Bugaboo

CAMELION VS BUFFALO

Clockwise from the left: Cameleon and Buffalo

This week we welcome two different Bugaboo models to the ring: the Cameleon and the Buffalo.  Let’s meet the contenders…

THE BUGABOO CAMELEON!

The Cameleon3 is Bugaboo’s iconic stroller: 3 terrain, 3-in-1 design, 3rd generation.  And we can see why people love it.  Weighing in at 21lbs, the 3-in-1 design easily adapts to car seats (with a variety of adapters for a variety of manufacturers), the reversible bassinette, and the reversible stroller seat.  Watch as it takes on the city with it’s smaller swivel wheels to the front; marvel as the handle bar pivots around to hit the trail with the large foam wheels forward to take on rough terrain; and stand in awe as it transitions easily from four to two wheels to take on snow and sand.  The seat and bassinet (independent and included) both flip easily to allow your child to face you or the world.  The easily accessible hand break allows you to stop on a dime and the handlebar is height adjustable to allow for easy, one-handed steering.  The foam wheels in conjunction with adjustable swivel wheel suspension in 4 positions makes the Cameleon live up to it’s namesake easily taking on a variety of environments.

THE BUGABOO BUFFALO!

A newcomer to the scene, we’re excited to invite the Buffalo to the ring.  It’s optimized for robust use, allowing you to put up to 13lbs of weight on the handlebar without the stroller tipping, 50lbs in the seat, and 22lbs under the seat for a combined weight of up to 80lbs.  You can also attach the wheel board at 31lbs and be ready to go.  Of course a stroller this robust doesn’t steer with one hand like the Cameleon, but it still swivels smoothly and is ready to take on any terrain.  This stroller has a more outdoorsy family in mind.  It has the largest seat of the Bugaboo models and it’s four foam wheels are prepared to provide a smooth ride in any environment.  It also has an extended canopy for extra protection against wind, sun, and rain.  It can fold up in one piece for garage/in-home storage or in two pieces to more easily fit in the car so you can get out and go.  The seat reclines to allow the little one to sit up straight when awake, recline when relaxed, or lie flat when fast asleep.  We also love the height-adjustable handlebar that offers a greater range of heights than ever before.

In the Bugaboo vs. Bugaboo battle, which contender do you put your money on?  Let us know in the comments!
