At the moment the youngest member of our household is not her usual happy self. She has a decent number of teeth already (at only 15 months old) but I think some more are on the way , at least I hope that is what it is otherwise I really have no idea. To help ease the discomfort she is using both a teether for her to bite and chew on (more about that another day) as well as an amber teething necklace from Gummy Babies.

Gummy Babies is an Australian store filled with great products for babies, kids and even adults. Most items in store are chosen because of their gentle, eco-friendly qualities, something that is very important to many modern Australian parents. The range has been handpicked by parents just like you, who wanted to make it easy for you to shop from home for quality pieces for your own family or gifts. To make your shopping experience as pleasant as possible you don’t have to worry about postage, all Australian orders ship free of charge.

The Gummy Babies range consists of some well known labels like Dandelion, Lamaze and Aden + Anais, this last name is famous for it’s fabulous baby wraps and sleeping bags in the most gorgeous prints. This Aden + Anais Cozy Sleeping Bag ($48, size medium, large and extra large) is available in a boy and girl design and is made of 100% natural muslin to keep your baby cool this summer.

I admit that I had my doubts about the effect (if any) amber would have on babies but figured it was at least worth a try. The baby has only just started wearing her necklace but my three year old daughter wears hers all the time and we have definitely seen a change in her behaviour, she seems happier. At Gummy Babies you’ll find Teething Necklaces in several colours to suit your taste and at the moment they are on special for just $19.95.

Although more and more parents are getting to know the comforting properties of amber for children there are many adults who don’t know that amber can be beneficial for adults too. Amber contains a natural analgesic which can offer effective relief for rheumatoid pains, migraines, colds and general aches and pains. Gummy Babies stocks both amber bracelets and necklaces for adults, prices start at $18.

To find out more about Gummy Babies, to browse the range and to order online visit www.gummybabies.com.au.

Safety Notice for phil&teds Sport V2/ Classic V1 owners

 Out & About  Comments Off on Safety Notice for phil&teds Sport V2/ Classic V1 owners
Nov 282011
 

Important Safety Notice from phil&teds

Consistent with our unwavering commitment to safety we are providing consumers with notice of a voluntary recall to repair the now discontinued sport v2 and classic v1 strollers, manufactured between April 2008 and June 2010.

We are making available, free of charge, to all affected consumers a free self-fit hinge cover. This is in response to a number of reported cases in which the frame lock of a sport v2 (which shares a common hinge with the classic v1) was not utilised and an adult user caught a finger in the hinge mechanism, causing injury.

Of the phil&teds stroller range only these two strollers are affected by this recall to repair. All other models have different hinge mechanisms and are unaffected.

Safety is our first priority and through this voluntary effort we urge consumers to immediately obtain and fit the free kit which may be obtained via the online order form.

Should you have any queries at all please feel free to contact one of our trained customer service representatives.

phil&teds stresses that all users should read and adhere to the instruction manual which contains valuable safety tips and service recommendations.

Buggy identification methods:

The sport v2 and classic v1 were manufactured between March 2008 and May 2010. Affected serial numbers (located on the inner face of the main hinge, underneath the seat):

Sport V2 affected serial numbers – 0308/0001 to 0510/0840
Classic V1 affected serial numbers – 0308/0001 to 0510/0906
The strollers have the codes ‘SPv2’ (sport v2) or ‘E3C’ (classic v1) printed on the wrist safety strap attached to the stroller handle

To apply for your new hinge cover fill out the official recall to repair form.

Register for your new hinge covers before end of February as phil&teds will be giving away one explorer stroller and three lobster high chairs to four phil&teds owners who have registered for hinge covers!

Eeni Meeni Miini Moh Christmas style

As a child I was always very excited about getting a new outfit for Christmas. The new clothes used to hang in, or even better in front of, my wardrobe so I could admire them in the days leading up to Christmas, the Christmas eve service couldn’t come quick enough! I have been putting together Christmas outfits for my kids too and as much as I like them to look special and festive it is very important to me that the pieces are practical and can be worn long after the Christmas tree has been put away. At the moment Eeni Meeni Miini Moh has some very stylish pieces on offer that would be very well suited to the festive season, these are some of my favourites:

1. Eeni Meeni Miini Moh Polo Clover (from $59, size 2-12)
2. Eeni Meeni Miini Moh Cap Sleeve Dress Crimson (from $104, size 0-5)
3. Eeni Meeni Miini Moh T-shirt Herringbone Clover (from $51, size 0-5)
4. Eeni Meeni Miini Moh Hat Enfant Crimson ($34, size XXS-M)
5. Eeni Meeni Miini Moh Square Neck Dress (from $104, size 0-5)
6. Eeni Meeni Miini Moh Polo Crimson (from $54, size 0-5)

I can’t help but share this absolutely gorgeous spotty top for the girls. It has the cutest frill shoulder straps and detachable wings on the back. Although my youngest daughter’s behaviour is not always angelic her face most definitely is so she is going to steal the show this Christmas wearing the Crimson Wing Top (from $59, size 0-5). If you haven’t got your Christmas outfits sorted it it time to hurry up, Christmas is less than 1 month away.

Especially on hot summer days it is important to drink enough water. At home it is easy to drink regularly as you pass the tap or fridge all the time but what about at work, school or when out and about? Instead of buying plastic bottles which are expensive and damaging to the environment you could just bring your own pre-filled bottles from home, just ‘grab ‘n’ go’!

The Grab ‘n’ Go system consists of five re-usable water bottles with colourful, stylish prints. At the start of the week you fill up each bottle, place it in your fridge in the handy fridge storage tray (part of this great system) and every morning when you leave for school or work you can grab a nice cold drink and off you go! Preparation is the key and it will save you time filling them all at once as opposed to individually in the morning when you are already rushing.

Of course the Grab ‘n’ Go bottles are BPA free and made of tough and durable plastic. The Grab ‘n’ Go system is available from Stretched Interiors in an adults size ($24.95, 470ml bottles) and kids size ($19.95, 290ml bottles). To celebrate the opening of this new store you can get 30% discount on your order with the code GRAND30, I think I might get my twins a set for next year when they start kindy.

To find out more about Stretched Interiors, to take a closer look at the Grab ‘n’ Go system and to order online visit www.stretchedinteriors.com.au.

When I look at the rainy weather outside I find it hard to believe that one week ago I was trying to quickly find myself a pair of bathers so we could go for a refreshing swim whilst visiting Melbourne. Today it is pouring but the kids can’t stop talking about the beach, pools and slippery water slides. They can’t wait until Summer arrives in all its glory and they can hop in our inflatable kiddy pool whenever they want. As much as kids would like to stay in the water all day they will have to come out as some stage which is where Terry Rich comes in.

Australian label Terry Rich adds a serious touch of style to the beach and poolside with a beautiful range of towels, beach robes, cover-ups and pool jackets for children (ages 1 – 12) and women. For the past 10 years Terry Rich has been delivering high quality products that are made to last and impress with bold, colourful designs, without losing track of functionality and practicality.

The current Terry Rich kids range features a large selection of hooded beach robes with stripes in all the colours of the rainbow. The beach robes are available with or without sleeves and come in sizes 2, 4 and 6. The luxurious, soft robes will keep your little ones warm and dry whilst out of the water and are a breeze to put on thanks to the front zip. The pocket will help bring cold hands to the right temperature or can hold some coins for a yummy icecream.

This Summer Beach Robe ($69.90) looks almost good enough to eat sporting bright, summery colours any child will love. Our oldest daughter is a little water rat but I have no doubt she will jump out of the pool for this one, her passion for beautiful clothes wins it from her love for water any day. In fact, if I let her she would proudly wear this beach robe anywhere she goes, even to bed.

To find out more about Terry Rich, to browse the range and to order online visit www.terryrich.com.au.

For your chance to win a Terry Rich Summer Beach Robe (size 2 or 6) visit www.terryrich.com.au and answer the following question: Aside from the Beach Robes, which other Terry Rich product do you really like? Please also include which size you would like to win.
