American Baby’s Baby Booty: Enter for a Chance to Win a $140 Clothing Set from Munchkin’s Mbaby

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

It’s not often that there’s true innovation in baby clothes, but Munchkin’s new Mbaby line has some well-thought-out details that are unique and useful, especially as the weather heats up.

For instance, all the one-pieces in the collection have a double layer of fabric on the front side, but a single layer behind. That’s because babies spend so much time with their backs against the stroller, or car seat, or crib mattress, that they could use venting back there and extra warmth up front!

And I don’t know about you, but I had big-headed babies. A lot of bodysuits can stretch around the head, but this little Mbaby sailor suit has snaps that open to easily get it over a boy’s head, then can be snapped up for a smart polo-shirt look. Too cute!  

Check out the line (most pieces are between $28 and $60) and when you shop between now and the end of the day on April 30th, use this exclusive discount code for 15% off: Goody15.

Also this week, Munchkin is offering TWO lucky GoodyBlog readers the chance to win Mbaby’s Cherry Stripe Sleepster (worth $48), Sailor Peacoat (worth $60), and a Onester of the winner’s choice (bringing the total package to about $140). 

To enter, leave a comment below, up to one a day between today and the end of the day April 30. Be sure to check back on May 1 and scroll to the bottom of the post to see who won. We reach out to winners via Facebook message (it goes into your “other” message folder on Facebook), so if you win, look for us there as well. Goody luck!

Now that we’ve helped you dress your baby, let us help you play with him too! Watch this video.

Parents Goody Giveaway: Enter for a Chance to Win a $150 Special Edition Coffee Maker from Keurig

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

After a frazzled morning spent preparing your family for the day, sometimes all any mom needs is a cup of joe for an instant energy boost. While it’s important to remember drinking too much coffee can be dangerous, in moderation, the beverage could actually be good for you. Take recent research from the American Heart Association. They found that drinking a cup of caffeinated coffee helped improve blood flow in small blood vessels, a big plus for maintaining cardiovascular health.

Good thing then that Keurig has a K65 Special Edition brewing system to help coffee lovers get a healthy dose of caffeine. Valued at $150, it makes a cup in under a minute as hot as you’d like thanks to the temperature control. Or you can brew your beverage of choice over ice.

This week, Keurig is offering TWO lucky GoodyBlog readers the chance to win a Special Edition coffee maker. To enter, leave a comment below, up to one a day between today and the end of the day April 28. Be sure to check back on April 29 and scroll to the bottom of the post to see who won. We reach out to winners via Facebook message (it goes into your “other” message folder on Facebook), so if you win, look for us there as well. Goody luck!

For our preggo moms-to-be, check out this video for smart caffeine and tea consumption while expecting!

American Baby’s Baby Booty: Enter for a Chance to Win a $400 Organic Crib Mattress from Naturalmat

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

Your baby will, ideally, spend a lot of time in the crib. That’s one of the reasons I’m always preaching to pregnant women to consider spending extra money on an organic or Greenguard-certified crib mattress. You want something non-toxic, that’s safe for baby to breath next to for hours at a time. I know the mattress isn’t as fun to buy as the sheets or the crib itself, but I’d argue it’s the more important purchase.

Probably the most hyper-natural mattress manufacturer I’ve ever encountered is Naturalmat. Watch this video of them making mattresses over in the UK, by hand! Surrounded by cute lambs! You can’t make this stuff up. They are organic down to the ingredients they use to make their mattresses hypoallergenic and fire-retardant

Naturalmat is offering ONE lucky GoodyBlog reader the chance to win its Coco Mat organic crib mattress, which is $400 at retailers such as Amazon.com. The inside is made from coconut husks and lambswool…such a nice change from the days when we all thought we had to sleep on plastic-encased metal springs.

To enter, leave a comment below, up to one a day between today and the end of the day April 23. Be sure to check back on April 24 and scroll to the bottom of the post to see who won. We reach out to winners via Facebook message (it goes into your “other” message folder on Facebook), so if you win, look for us there as well. Goody luck!

Parents Goody Giveaway: Enter for a Chance to Win a $370 Movie and iPad Mini Prize Package from Universal Studios

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Once my sister and I got older, it became a lot harder for my parents to entertain us on family trips. The one thing that did hold our attention in the car was watching movies. It was as big a deal to figure out what DVDs we were taking as it was to pack clothing. Here are two new releases you’ll want for this year’s summer travels:

* Fans of funny animal flicks will love the animated action-adventure The Nut Job, released on DVD today. It follows the thieving squirrel Surly as he attempts to pull off the greatest nut heist of his life.

* Seeing a new spin on a classic can also be rewarding, like with The Little Rascals Save The Day. Key members of the gang, including sweethearts Alfalfa and Darla, return to help Grandma’s bakery stay afloat. After some botched fundraising attempts, they set their heart on winning the local talent show to raise money, proving they’re all still the same bunch of good-hearted, silly kids today’s parents may remember watching from their own childhood.

To celebrate the release of both movies, Universal Studios is giving away the DVD/Blu-ray Combo Packs of both plus an iPad mini so your kids can take their entertainment on the go. FOUR lucky GoodyBlog readers will have the chance to win this prize package, which retails at $370!

To enter, leave a comment below, up to one a day between today and the end of the day April 21. Be sure to check back on April 22 and scroll to the bottom of the post to see the four winners. We reach out to winners via Facebook message (it goes into your “other” message folder on Facebook), so if you win, look for us there as well. Goody luck!

American Baby’s Baby Booty: Enter for a Chance to Win a $450 Travel System from Baby Jogger & Maxi-Cosi

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

I’ve noticed some expectant parents “making” a travel system by buying the stroller that they want with a different brand’s car seat, figuring out through research that the two are compatible. But we love this new development: Baby Jogger has partnered with Maxi-Cosi, offering the popular City Mini stroller along with the gorgeous Mico AP car seat for a ready-to-go, super-stylish travel system you can buy in-store at Babies “R” Us or online at Diapers.com.

Note there isn’t a huge savings; the $450 price is about what you’d pay for them separately, which makes this travel system a bit different than others. But this “bundle” can still make your registry more efficient and assures new parents that these two products are made for each other. (And on a side note, I could sit and play with the color combinations all day.)

Baby Jogger and Maxi-Cosi are offering ONE lucky GoodyBlog reader the chance to win a Baby Jogger City Mini & Mico AP travel system, worth $450! (The stroller will come in crimson/gray and the car seat will come in total black, as shown in the top photo). To enter, leave a comment below, up to one a day between today and the end of the day April 16. Be sure to check back on April 17 and scroll to the bottom of the post to see who won. We reach out to winners via Facebook message (it goes into your “other” message folder on Facebook), so if you win, look for us there as well. Goody luck!

And if stroller-speak such as “travel system” is making your head hurt, watch my little tutorial!

Congrats to our winner Phil Taylor!

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

Here at Parents, we couldn’t be more ready for the sun to start shining, so much so that in our July issue, we have a whole spread devoted to outdoor toys. And since even that seems far away, we’re super excited to cover ride-on toys in an exclusive slideshow to appear online in May.

The latest one to catch our attention: Radio Flyer’s Cyclone. Using their arms, kids can spin 360 degrees in any direction they please. Perfect for ages 3-7, we love that the Cyclone encourages kids to be active with the added bonus of twirling fun. (Side note: We tried it here in the office and confirmed that lightweight adults can ride it too!)

Also: Longtime Radio Flyer fans can share their favorite memories through Little Red Stories, an online gallery where families can submit and browse tales of red wagons and other toys, photos, and videos of cherished Radio Flyer experiences. Those who spill have the chance to be selected as the monthly winner of a $500 gift card to RadioFlyer.com. Plus, all entries will be considered for the big $10,000 grand prize, including a custom Build-A-Trike and Build-A-Wagon, all to be awarded next month.

In the meantime, Radio Flyer is offering the Cyclone, a $60 value, to TWO lucky GoodyBlog readers. To enter, leave a comment below, up to one a day between today and the end of the day April 14.

American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win a $300 High Chair from BabyBjorn

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

My niece is fully onto solids. On most Tuesdays I do Facetime with her, and I eat my dinner while my brother spoons food into her mouth. She seems fascinated to watch me eat while being fed herself! 

This week, when she was done, she started to try and dismantle her high chair. The one she is using is portable and not super sturdy. That got me thinking, gear-obsessed editor that I am, about the Baby Bjorn High Chair. It’s sturdy as a rock, great for small spaces, has a comfy shape and footrest to keep a kid sitting, and wipes down quickly. The $300 pricepoint stops a lot of people, but I would maintain that if you watch the video on the product, you can understand why the design and features are worth it.

Don’t be fooled by the fact that it isn’t giant; a baby doesn’t need a big seat (and you don’t want to clean one). This high chair fits a 5-month-old to a 3-year-old, and BabyBjorn is giving it away to ONE lucky winner. (But not to my brother! He’s going to have to pony up.)

To enter, leave a comment below, up to one a day between today and the end of the day April 2. More Qs about our giveaway? Read the official rules. Be sure to check back on April 3 and scroll to the bottom of the post to see who won. We reach out to winners via Facebook message (it goes into your “other” message folder on Facebook), so if you win, look for us there as well. Goody luck!
