Stuff We Love

  • Robo-Pal
    Encourage your fledgling crawler or walker to follow along with Chicco's Baby Space robot. The smiley-faced toy lights up, giggles, and waddles forward with the push of a button that's big enough for even your 1-year-old to handle. ($22;
  • Loads of Laughs
    With the eebee's Laundry Time Adventures cloth book, your baby can take towels from the hamper to the washer and hang pajamas on a clothesline, then put them away in drawers. If only he could do the real laundry! ($15;
  • Hot Seat
    Three easy-to-change reclining positions make the BabyBjorn Babysitter Balance a sweet spot for relaxing, bouncing, or snoozing -- and your baby can use it until he's 29 pounds. ($170;
  • Time Cards
    Nix the annual Christmas letter: Everyone would rather see what your cutie's been up to with captioned photos on Minted's Time Line Holiday Cards. ($200 to $250 for 100 cards; Babytalk readers can enter code BABYTALK at and pay only $170 to $212.50 for 100 cards)
  • High Style For Less
    For a decked-out, mod nursery that won't break the bank, check out Amy Coe's new line of cribs, hampers, storage boxes, and more. ($5 to $350;
  • Bedtime Buddy
    Watching the colorful water animals spinning around the pond in Tiny Love's Nature's Serenade could put you to sleep! When your baby outgrows the mobile, the base becomes a musical nightlight. ($55;
  • Both Sides Now
    Give your aching shoulders a break: Infantino's Front 2 Back Rider lets you tote your tot three different ways, and it's a fraction of the price of other carriers. ($30;
  • Docu-Dads
    A laugh-out-loud DVD you and your hubby will love, Being Dad follows 40 guys as they learn about pregnancy sex, epidurals, and parenthood. ($30;
  • Recall Alert!
    We loved these Discovery Balls, but they've been recalled by the manufacturer, Haba. There have been no reported injuries associated with their use, but mirrors on a similar toy made by Haba can become loose and pose a choking hazard, so Haba is recalling Discovery Balls as well.

  • Use It or Lose It?
    Of course you want a germ-free eating surface for your baby when you dine out, but would you lug along the Neatnik Saucer ($48.50; neat and slide it onto a restaurant high chair to keep things clean?
