KooKoo Bear Kids announces the company will begin selling the myHaven by Young America Furniture. The line features an exciting range of colors that can be mixed and matched to produce a variety of looks, from classic, to easy-going, to bold and beautiful, delivering the ultimate in self-expression. The myHaven collection includes 30 childrens furniture pieces finished in a dazzling array of 20 colorful finishes, from flamingo and lilac to sunflower and watermelon, guaranteed to brighten any childs room. The myHaven collection is a great addition to the many lines of fine furniture from Stanley, and others that we carry for the entire family, said Tara Mediate, president of KooKoo Bear Kids and mother of three. What I love most about the collection is that it truly allows children to create an environment where they can express their own individuality. Our customers will love the combination of style and choice. Whether they prefer soft pastels, or strong, bold colors, the cottage styling and beadboard construction will appeal to a wide range of tastes.

A highly attractive and unique quality of the myHaven line is that it is designed to adult specifications so that the furniture can accompany the child from the crib to college. With beds that convert from a crib to a daybed to a double bed, the collection literally grows with the child. Complementing the beds are matching drawers and nightstands in the same colorful, cottage-style look.

The pieces are scaled a little small, also making the line perfect for a summer cottage where space is at a premium. And with such spectacular color choices, the furniture is guaranteed to brighten any room.

KooKoo Bear Kids is just one of a handful of retailers who will carry the collection. It blends well with our existing lines of fine, yet affordable, children’s furniture added Ms. Mediate.

While playing in the water and on the beach is loads of fun, it is important to make sure your kids are safe. Drowning can happens so fast and is the 2nd most common cause of death from injuries among kids. When you first get to the beach, check with the lifeguard to find out how strong the waves are. In some places swimmers may encounter strong undertows or ocean currents. Rip currents are so strong that they can carry swimmers away from shore before they know what’s happening. If you are caught in a current, swim parallel to the shore (alongside the shore) rather than to the shore until the water stops pulling you, then swim back to shore. If you can’t get back to the beach, tread water and wave for a lifeguard’s help.

Help! I Need A Baby Shower Gift!
Baby showers are a very special event in any mother’s life. It is not just a party where the guests are expected to buy “things” that baby will need when they arrive. It is a special celebration of a new life about to be born into the world. While the games, food and drinks are important, the baby’s gift is what will matter 10, 20, even 30 years from now. Why not make it special?!

Unique baby shower gifts are something that mom and baby will cherish for a lifetime. Think of a unique gift as something that can be stored away in a hope chest and then passed on through generations. Think of a unique baby shower gift as something that wouldn’t necessarily be on a gift registry and you certainly wouldn’t find a unique gift at your local chain store. The best baby shower gift is a crafted one of a kind creation. KooKoo Bear Kids provides many awesome, unique baby shower gifts that any parent-to-be will love:

Congratulations to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt! Pair to Soon Bring Home Adopted Son!

03.19.07

The happy couple have decided to once again adopt a child and this time it is a 3 1/2 year old boy from Vietnam. Officials in Ho Chi Minh City are reviewing Jolie’s file and should complete their work by the end of the month. The child was abandoned at a Ho Chi Minh City hospital as a baby and then taken to the nearby Tam Binh orphanage, where he has lived ever since. Angelina and Brad made a surprise visit to the orphanage in November which is when they first met the boy. They reported he gets along well with other children, is in excellent health, and loves to play soccer.

The adoption is being processed quickly because the boy is an older child, and his files were nearly complete before Jolie decided to adopt. Jolie and Brad Pitt have three children: 5-year-old Maddox, adopted from Cambodia; 2-year-old Zahara, adopted from Ethiopia; and another daughter, Shiloh, who was born to the couple in May.

Diaper Bag Essentials for The New Mom (and Dad)

Diaper Bag Essentials for The New Mom (and Dad)

It is common knowledge that most mothers believe the diaper bag to be the most important of all their essential baby care items. Proper planning is required to ensure that all the necessary items have been packed and included in the diaper bag. Diaper Bags make for a convenient one stop, store all, location. This allows for easy transport and accessibility to the necessary items. The average diaper bag has dramatically changed over the years with many designs and styles becoming readily available.

Diaper bags are designed to contain diapers and on average, will hold up to a dozen diapers. There are usually additional storage compartments for items such as diaper cremes and ointments, baby powder, and wipes. Most bags have large pockets that can be used to store soiled clothing, blankets, or burb clothes. Diaper bags should also have smaller pockets to store baby’s food, bottles, and snacks.

With all the various styles and designs available today, choosing the right diaper bag for your specific needs can be a challenge. An ideal diaper bag will have more than one section, space for bottle warmers and other feeding related items, water proof pocket for wet item storage, and separate pocket for baby essentials. Choose a style that will fit your needs, yet look classic. Make sure your diaper bag is made of excellent materials and won’t fall apart after the first month. Taking the time to select the proper diaper bag for your specific needs will be a wise and extremely important venture for all Moms (and Dads) - also called daddy diaper bag).

Classic Wooden Toys Last A Lifetime!
