The Perfect Stroller For Small Spaces & Traveling #GBQbit

24 Sep

The GB Qbit made it’s official release in July.  We had the chance to try it out. As you can imagine, city-life requires a lot of walking.  I average 7 miles a day.  A lot for a young child which is why I rely on a stroller to get my youngest around.  Space is few and far between in NYC. You have to get creative in finding space for the every day stroller that can navigate through the snowy winters as well as the light-weight stroller that’s easy to take up and down the subway steps.   It can be tough.

The GB Qbit is easy to fold, one-handed, and is compact. It fits easily on my closet shelf, leaving floor space, something that is very important in apartment living.  I also found the stroller to be ideal for traveling. For navigating the subway stairs, it’s light-weight, only weighing 14 pounds.  There is a built in carrying bag, perfect for protecting the stroller when traveling by air. It also fits easily in the back of our car.

  • Removable Cup holder
  • Transport Bag
  • Fits most many airline overhead compartments
  • Expandable sun canopy
  • Under basket for diaper bags, toys, or groceries home.
  • Affordable compared to many strollers, $179.99 at Toys R Us and Babies R Us.
  • Infant Car Seat compatible with GB Asana35, Maxi cosi Mico AP, and Cybex Aton.
  • Watch it in action here

So far the stroller has been fabulous. My daughter loves it. I am interested to see how it holds up navigating the streets of NYC or traveling during the winter months.  I will definitely keep you posted.

Thank you for the opportunity to share our experiences with the GB Qbit Stroller. I received a stroller as part of the review.

Bluum To Launch Toddler Box In January

2 Dec

20121202-220859.jpg

I recently attended an event at Piccolini for the upcoming launch of the bluum toddler box. Bluum is an online, monthly subscription service that sends new moms a beautifully curated box containing sample and full size beauty, wellness and baby care products. The Bluum team scours the globe to find the latest products and fill each box with useful, healthy and responsible choices for you and your little ones. Founded in 2011, bluum began with a baby box and will launch the toddler box in January 2013 for $24.95 a month. Bluum customizes the boxes based on your child’s age, sex and needs. You can subscribe for one month, six months, or a year depending on what suits you. At the launch, I revceived a box as a sneak peek about what a subscriber would expect in the box. When I returned home, my girls were ecstatic to see what was in their box. They found these awesome products:

My girls love checking the mail. They look for our apartment on the mailboard to see if we received any packages and when there isn’t a toy magazine or something addressed to them they think the mailman forgot them. With a subscription to bluum toddler they would know they are getting a package once a month and every time they open the box they would be surprised by what they receive. Some products we may know and others we will discover. We can’t wait to subscribe when they launch! To find out more, subscribe, or give the gift of bluum, click links!
