Get ready for the B-READY!

May 24, 2010


Britax, mostly known as the leading manufacturer of car seats, will release a line of strollers this summer that will KNOCK YOUR SOX OFF. It will also give the competition a run for their money, so watch out Phil & Ted’s, Uppa Vista, and others – the B-READY is coming to town!

The B-READY can be converted from a single to a two-child or twin stroller by using any combination of seats, bassinets and infant car seats in 14 possible configurations!!! Seats can point forward or backward, recline in multiple positions, and fold into the stroller without removing them (it can be folded with one hand – for real). Be ready (couldn’t resist) for other souped-up features as well. It comes in four colors and each will have a matching car seat (but you can use any car seat on the stroller). And… are you ready for it???? It’s $499.99. Available in July. I can hardly wait.

Kid Friendly Charleston

May 23, 2010

Rainbow Row Charleston

We recently took a trip to Charleston, South Carolina, for a long weekend. Charleston is mostly known as a romantic city for adults, but why not bring the kids along for some fun too? It turns out Charleston is a great city for a family getaway.

Charleston is small, manageable and easily walkable. The city’s rich history is evident at every turn, and there are endless quaint cobblestone roads and hidden places to explore. The historic homes in the heart of the city are breathtaking. You can gaze at block after block of these beautiful homes such as the Heyward Washington House built in 1772 and take yourself back in time, or walk along Rainbow Row, famous for its multicolor row houses (see above photo). The group (or private) carriage tours are fun for families and great for kids tired of walking. Charleston recently gave its waterfront park a face lift, perfect for a picnic or walk by the water. There is a fantastic public recreation center on East Bay Road (down by the water), complete with a free open playspace, air hockey, games, bathroom with changing tables and outdoor playground.

Some other great family highlights are:
The South Carolina Aquarium – This modern aquarium is not-to-be-missed with kids. See daily shows and amazing exhibits.
The Children’s Museum – Lots of hands on activities that your kids will love. See daily events calendar.
The Beaches: Both within a half hour drive of Charleston these two beaches are great for a day trip – Folly Beach (super casual layed back beach town) & Sullivan’s Island (gorgeous wide perfect sand beach).
The PlantationsBoon Hall Plantation is the most popular plantation and very accessible (5 minutes from downtown Charleston). You and your kids get to see what life was like on a real South Carolina plantation.
Kid Friendly Restaurants – There are many kid friendly restaurants in Charleston but many are very touristy so be careful. I recommend Magnolias and High Cotton for some local cuisine and Baked for some yummy deserts (yes, this is a Brooklyn import but it’s SO good!). Gullah Cuisine is a good choice if your kids are a bit more adventurous and want real lowcountry cuisine.
