Everyone loves The Guncles!
And we couldn’t be happier to announce that the fabulous Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood stars – Bill Horn and Scout Masterson – are guest blogging for Celebrity Baby Scoop!
Bill and Scout – who are lovingly referred to as The Guncles – along with their adorable 1-year-old daughter Simone recently returned from the ABC Kids Expo in Kentucky. Read their first guest blog about the top 10 must-haves from the fab event.
On Monday, the 9th Annual All Baby & Child (ABC) Kids Expo, a partnership of juvenile industry manufacturers and retailers organized for the purpose of promoting the children’s products industry, wrapped up in Louisville, Kentucky after 4 days. We, along with our sweet daughter Simone, headed to the Expo to report back exclusively for Celebrity Baby Scoop.
In alphabetical order, here are some of Simone (and her Daddies’) favorite new items from the more than 900 exhibitors on hand:
For any parent who has struggled with setting up or breaking down a pack-n’-play (we know you’re out there…), the folks behind the mamaRoo unveiled the answer to their prayers at ABC. The Breeze is the easiest to use playpen we’ve ever seen – it opens and breaks down with one simple motion. So no more messing around with those locking legs! www.4moms.com
We’re big fans of Boon products and have used their Grass Countertop Drying Rack since the day Simone was born to dry her bottles. Now Boon has launched another version called Lawn, which is clear (instead of the more traditional green for grass, to match any décor). And their genius has taken it a step further with the introduction of Twig (a tree) & Stem (a flower) to hold bottle parts and small sippy cup parts for drying. www.booninc.com
One of Simone’s favorite things, this reusable snack bag, is now available in a new miniature size. Great for kid’s snacks and handy for parents iPods, cell phones and toiletries! And all in chic fabrics. www.ItzyRitzy.com
Finally, we’ve found chic shoes for our little lady! L’Amour makes Coco Chanel and current adult trend inspired designs for your little Miss and Mister. Sold in boutiques nationwide – including Kitson Kids in Los Angeles.
Simone sleeps nightly on her Nook Pebble Organic Mattress. Now Nook has released this chic, eco-friendly pillow specially designed for toddlers. It contains naturally microbe resistant eucalyptus and comes in four fun color combinations. www.nooksleep.com
- Nursery Works Uptown bed and changer (in black)
Simone is getting ready to transition from her crib to her very first bed. We were blown away by the looks of this new toddler bed and changer by Nursery Works. It is beyond chic and reminiscent of one of our favorite spots in Palm Springs, the Viceroy Hotel. We wish it was available in adult size! www.nurseryworks.net
- Skip Hop’s diaper bags designed by Jonathan Adler
We’re big Adler fans and we’re guessing parents everywhere will love these hip and funky diaper bags with signature Jonathan Adler prints. We think they’ll be “all the rage” in every play date circle. Release date TBA in December. www.skiphop.com
Hip Los Angeles designers Sarah Shetter and Alison Palevsky of SPI Design have entered the baby space with the official release of their signature nursery pieces. We’ve used their super comfy rocker in Simone’s nursery and now they’ve released other pieces, including a stunning raspberry dresser. Gorge! www.spibaby.com
There are many booster’s out there, but Simone found Sweet Seats to be the most comfy! Mom and Dad designed, these laminated cotton (BPA and PVC free, of course!) trend-setting booster seats are catered to children ages 18 months to 7 years and come in super cool prints. www.sweet-seat.com
We use and love Zoli’s On-The-Go snack dispenser. Now they’ve outdone themselves with the new BOT Straw Sippy Cup. We’re constantly finding flaws with the sippy’s Simone has tried, one major being getting the liquid out when it’s almost empty. The new BOT has innovative straw technology (with a weighted steel ball) that moves to the liquid whenever the cup is tilted, allowing Simone to sip to the last drop! Finally, No more crying to get the last sips of milk. www.zolibaby.com
