New Products

It's no longer a torrent, but we are still getting orders from the ABC Expo. We've even had to re-order one of our new products - we foolishly underanticipated its appeal. Here's what's new since the last newsletter:

  • Mambino organic skin care products. Mostly mama stuff, but also some baby oil. [Sorry, but these haven't made it to the website yet.]
  • By customer request, Hyland's homeopathic teething tablets & gel.
  • Planet Wise wet/dry bags! [Sorry, but these haven't made it to the website yet.]
  • Gumdrop pacifiers.
  • babysoy layette. Baby clothes made from a 50/50 blend of soybean fiber and cotton. We have pieces from their basic line as well as their organic cotton Oh-Soy! line.
  • RiNGLEY teethers. A natural maple ring and an organic terry cotton cloth. What more could you ask for in a teething toy?
  • Just in today is the Pikkolo carrier by CatBird Baby. This is a structured carrier (similar to ERGO) that allows for an outward facing front carry. [Sorry, but these haven't made it to the website yet.]
Our 30 Seconds of Fame

We shot a commercial last Thursday morning. By Friday afternoon we had a finished product - cut, edited, with a soundtrack, polished and ready to air.

It's actually been on the air since this past Monday. They can't seem to give us a schedule of air times any more than 12 hours in advance. So we can't tell you exactly when to look for it. But we can tell you where and generally when to look for it. If you have MediaCom cable we will be on the Soap Network, Bravo & Hallmark. It will air during the following periods:

  • October 19 - 25
  • November 16 - December 13

In general, it will be on the Soap Network during weekdays and Bravo & Hallmark on weekends.

If you happen to catch it, we'd love to hear your comments.

In the last newsletter we mentioned the redesigned ERGObaby Carrier Back Packs. They failed to mention when we placed our order that they would continue shipping the old style Back Packs until they ran out and then would start delivering the redesigned ones. Well, of course, we received the older style. So we have returned them and will reorder when we hear that they have started shipping the newer versions.

Consider this a teaser of things to come in a few weeks or months.

Star Wars Joke

Q: How is duct tape like the force?

A: They both have a light side, a dark side and bind everything together.
