Coming Soon: What’s New from Dutailier at ABC Kids Expo 2014

Dutailier is a fun new staple in the Modern Child section of the ABC Kids Expo. Since their modern furniture debut in 2011, I’ve been looking forward to seeing their annual displays.

This year Dutailier featured four new gliders for your modern nursery. First is the Capuccino shown here with a Melon Crib.

Here’s the Capuccino in another color…

So who did their nursery with Dutailier? I want photos!

Coming Soon: What’s New from Ubbi at ABC Kids Expo 2014

Ubbi, famous for its modern, colorful steel diaper pail is expanding its line of products. We checked out their entire range at the ABC Kids Expo 2014.

With a total now of 12 diaper pail colors, you can have the perfect pail to blend into your nursery decor. FYI, orange is exclusive to giggle and the red is exclusive to Target.

Ubbi Diaper Pails

Coming soon is Ubbi’s new Diaper Caddy. This sleek convenient design will be available in 4 colors and includes space for diapers, wipes, small necessities and even a changing mat. With a handle, you can take this wherever is convenient for you to change the baby.

Going beyond diapering to potty training, Ubbi’s 3-in-1 potty is a well thought out design that has you covered throughout toddler training. The 3-in-1 is a potty, toilet trainer and step stool, all with a colorful non-skid edge.

You will also be able to buy the toilet trainer, and step stool separately as well as a hook for hanging the training seat.

Finally, Ubbi is expanding into the feeding arena of baby products. The first and only item on display to introduce the new line is the tweat snack container.

With an intro this cute, I can’t wait to see what the rest of the collection will look like.

What’s New from MDB at the ABC Kids Expo 2014

As usual, the MDB Family of brands had a really busy booth at ABC Kids Expo 2014. With brands like Babyletto, Nursery Works, and Ubabub there’s always a lot to see at MDB.

First we have Nursery Works. With four crib designs in its collection, this display was a show stopper. I introduced you to their new cribs a few weeks ago, but it was wonderful to see them in person.

Nursery Works Cribs

First is the Highlight Crib with the neon yellow metal base.

Next is the Halo Crib with the 24 karat gold square base.

Nursery Works Halo Crib

The Contour Crib is really spectacular and the design converts beautifully from bassinet to crib. I wish they had shown it in bassinet form as well, but they did have the mattress to illustrate the size and the pieces that come with the crib.

Nursery Works Contour Crib

The Empire Rockers are shown here in some new and limited edition fabrics.

There are also some fun limited edition fabrics for the Sleepytime Rocker. I’d personally vote for some colorful solids, but you can always order custom upholstery.

On the Babyletto side, the new Gelato collection features a simple design with colorful leg options. Choose Cool Mint or Spring Yellow.Babyletto Gelato

Here you can also see one of Babyletto’s new gliders. The Trapeze will be available in this gray or cream.DSC_0373

This mid-century style Scoot collection is versatile and will suit many different nursery styles.

The Lolly Collection will be available in this gray color in addition to the original white.Babyletto Lolly

Babyletto’s new Bento glider is small and simple model.

I like the way the new Bingo Collection incorporates color as well as storage.

There will be three new bedding patterns added to Babyletto’s line up. I particularly like the tulips and the aztec style design.

Coming Soon: What’s New from Aden + Anais at ABC Kids Expo 2014

One of the “stars” of this year’s ABC Kids Expo was this fantastic, fun and modern muslin toddler bedding from Aden + Anais.

IMG_2922

These come as Bed in a Bag sets with everything you need. They are super soft and oh so cute.

IMG_2923

Aden + Anais has also partnered with The Woolmark Company to create a washable wool fabric with Aden + Anais’s signature muslin weave. The Merino wool collection is supremely luxurious and I had to touch it every time I walked by.

And since I got a question about it, these are the new muslin swaddle designs…

Coming Soon: What’s New from Bugaboo at ABC Kids Expo 2014

There was lots of excitement going on at Bugaboo this year. The often imitated brand that revolutionized the modern stroller market, Bugaboo continues to forge ahead with both design and engineering.

On the design side, I’m going crazy for the first special edition stroller of Bugaboo’s three-year collaboration with Diesel. This first collection is the Bugaboo Cameleon3 by Diesel.

Bugaboo Diesel Cameleon

This military-inspired stroller comes complete with a dark green chassis, green canvas, faux leather handlebar and tons of distinctive details.

Bugaboo Diesel

This will be available in stores in November 2014. The stroller will retail for $1300. Camouflage footmuff, seat liner, parasol and mosquito net will also be available as additional accessories.

The next notable new product at Bugaboo was the Bugaboo Stand. Use your Bugaboo carriage as a bassinet or your Bugaboo seat as a high chair.

Bugaboo Stand  Bugaboo Stand Rear

The Bugaboo Stand weighs less than 6 pounds and folds easily into a shoulder carrying bag.

Bugaboo Stand carrying case

The stand is compatible with the Bugaboo Cameleon3, Bugaboo Buffalo, and Bugaboo Donkey using the required set of adapters. Expect to see the Bugaboo Stand in Spring 2015 for $130.

The really big announcement of the show was the Bugaboo Runner.

Bugaboo Runner

In a special evening event, Bugaboo presented the jogging extension that works for (almost) any Bugaboo model you buy or own. Just click your seat onto the specially designed chassis and you’re ready to run. This eliminates the need to purchase a separate jogging stroller. You can jog with your child front or rear facing.

Bugaboo Runner

The Bugaboo Runner will be available in the US starting in Spring 2015 and the jogging extension will retail for $425. You will also be able to purchase the complete runner (chassis, seat and seat adaptors) for $755.

Coming Soon: What’s New from Oeuf at ABC Kids Expo 2014

Since Oeuf got the most “likes” on our ABC Kids Expo 2014 Instagram feed, it’s the first brand we’re going to cover.

One of the things I’m most excited about from the expo this year is Oeuf’s Fawn collection.

Oeuf Fawn Collection

The Fawn Crib, which is lovely on its own, is extra special because it converts from the bassinet.

Oeuf Fawn Crib and DresserOeuf Fawn Bassinet

The bassinet-to-crib should retail for $980 and is expected Spring 2015. A matching dresser will be part of the collection as well.

This River Twin Bed is a beautiful alternative to Oeuf’s Sparrow bed. I love the safety rail as well as the bench at the foot of the bed.  It’s your twin alternative to the Perch Toddler Bed.  The River Twin Bed will retail for $740 with the trundle ($300) and rail ($100) as add on accessories.  These are also expected in the spring.

I was also glad to see that Oeuf’s table and chair set is still in the pipeline.  This should be out by January.  The table is $270, a set of TWO chairs is $226 and the stickers will be about $20.

Oeuf will also be coming out with it’s own bedding for cribs as well as big kid beds.

Top Instagram Pics from ABC Kids Expo 2014

Our live coverage of the ABC Kids Expo 2014 took place primarily on Instagram. It was a great place to follow along this year, so thanks to all of you who followed and “liked” your favorites. To kick off our Expo coverage, here are the top three most “liked” finds of the show. We’ll have separate more in-depth posts covering these brands, but I wanted to give these favorites a special spotlight.

Our #3 most popular IG from the show was this toddler bedding set from Aden + Anais. There will be a few designs (as you can see behind the display) but the neon pink stars are really cool, and since it’s from Aden + Anais, it’s also super soft. The Bed in a Bag concept works so perfectly here.  Lucky toddlers!

The #2 most “liked” photo from the show was this shot of Monte‘s new bassinet. An adaptation of their Ninna Nanna bassinet, the Rockwell Bassinet features a walnut base and sleek chrome frame!

Monte Design Rockwell Bassinet

Finally, the #1 MOST popular photo (by a long shot!) from our ABC Kids Expo coverage on Instagram was the Fawn collection from Oeuf. The bassinet parts are used to form the crib. I love pieces that can do double duty and I think this is going to be a huge seller.
