Pop of color. This must have been on the Bugaboo designers’ minds when they created this bad boy. They stepped out of the box by using fluorescent accents on the wheels, logo, zippers, and harness buckles, adding a touch of brightness to the buggy. It was a design risk that totally paid off, but we’re not surprised that this baby brand successfully transformed a stroller into a stylish accessory. Here are our top three favorite things about these hot wheels.
1. Rough terrain is no obstacle: Just flip the handlebars so the swivel wheels are closest to you. That way you can easily maneuver around bumps for the smoothest ride possible.
2. The base is car-seat adaptable, so transferring your tot from the car to the stroller is completely fuss-free.
3. Our senior buyer, Melissa, says it’s important for the handlebars to be comfortable (you’ll be spending a lot of time with this stroller). With the Bugaboo Cameleon, it doesn’t matter if you’re 5’1 or 6’3 — the handlebars are adjustable.
This buggy is the mac daddy when it comes to transporting your child around town. Lightweight and limber (folds quickly!), the Techno XT has earned A-list status among moms. Our senior buyer, Melissa Keswin, has had one since her 3-year-old was an infant, and these strollers have become a Manhattan sidewalk staple. Here are the features we just can’t get enough of.

Last week we headed to NYC’s Upper East Side to get a glimpse of the new Armani Junior store. Obviously, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to scope out designer threads for newborns, babies, kids, and tweens; and the brand’s styles definitely impressed. We particularly loved the coats for couture cuties, which included a leather bomber number for boys and a faux fur-accented jacket for girls. See below for our favorite winter looks.
Because we live and breathe kids’ clothing, we often find ourselves daydreaming about designs and styles only tiny trendsetters can pull off. If this is also your procrastination method of choice, we’ve found an outlet for your creative energies: One Jackson. Submit designs for boys’ clothes via the company’s website, and then the public votes on your kid-friendly creation.
“Submissions range from a few pieces quick-sketched (we’ve even gotten drawings on napkins) to fully flushed out collections on Illustrator,” says Judy Pokonosky, design director. “All pieces in each collection are a collaboration of submissions from designers — it’s like working with 20 designers all at once.” Winners get a cash prize, royalties, and their name and story are included with the design. Um…amazing! Check out our sale featuring the company’s clothes, then get back to dreaming up dazzling designs for tots.
