New Kid on the Block

At least to me.

I love it when I receive a catalog from a store I've never heard of before. That happened today, and I'm sitting next to a happy little book from Giggle, a new (?) baby products retailer.

Most of the items in the catalog are too young for my nearly two and a half year old toddlers (and are certainly inappropriate for my eighteen year old). My sister is pregnant and due in December, but I think the catalog companies all think it's me, since I'm getting baby product catalogs and free formula samples and whatnot lately. No, I am not pregnant. Yes, I am sure. No, I don't know what's up with the catalog folks who apparently have not accepted that my factory is permanently closed.

But I digress. Giggle has some adorable ideas, that I WOULD look into if I were having a baby. Perhaps they will bring out a line of puppy items. Hmmm. For now, enjoy a few pieces of baby eye candy with me, if you will.

First up, this crib. It's so modern and groovy (I don't get to use the word groovy that often). Looky see:

It's smaller than a regular crib, so could be of use in a vacation home or at Grandma's house, especially considering that it folds!

And it comes in cool colors:

How many times have you heard someone say, "I have a taupe crib?" Exactly. Very original. Unless it's gray, and not taupe, but I have a feeling the answer is the same.

I have always been staunchly anti-diaper pail. Well, at least staunchly against the ones that suggest you leave a poopy diaper marinating inside for up to a week and then empty it when it becomes full. Ew. I prefer to dispatch smelliness to an outdoor or garage garbage can immediately. Of course, my distaste is probably because I'd never encountered such a fun looking one:

For that, I might have gotten off my high, diaper clad horse.

Now here are a few things I could still use. Not sure if my husband will agree to get rid of our existing booster seats, which we rarely use, just so I can have fun with this one:

It doesn't hurt that it comes in orange, one of my favorite colors. And further doesn't hurt that it also comes in a crisp green, another of my favs.

That? That is a pretty booster seat. So modern and clean lined, too.

I know this is a lot of pictures, but I'm not sure I can stop. I'm also loving these training pants (should my toddlers ever decide they have even the slightest interest in being potty trained):

And that's it. Really. Well, except for this adorable table set:

And an against the norm bassinet.

I swear I've never heard of Giggle before, and I didn't receive anything to showcase these items (I only have a handful of readers, who would give me anything?). This is kind of pathetic, considering how many photos I posted, but perhaps Giggle will pay it forward one day.

Or come read my blog. :)

I've never heard of this company either, but I'm going to check them out! My sister inlaw is having a baby soon, so I may find something nice on there for her. Are the prices reasonable? Well, I guess I'll just have to check and see, huh?!

I don't remember them being outrageous - but I'd have to look again. Would love to know if you end up with something!
