Buggy Bundle

brookspond.jpgLaurel has been a complete homebody these days - except of course for yesterday, when it was frigid, we didn’t have the car, and she really wanted to go to the library (a brisk 20-25 minute walk away). It’s wintry days like these where the fresh air will do everyone good but you also need top notch bundling - and the Brookspond Buggy Blanket will keep your babe toasty. Read on for Kate’s review, and also to learn how to win a Brookspond Perennial Buggy Blanket!
From Kate:

“If your toddler is like mine, convincing him or her to bundle in the cold weather is no small feat. My daughter resists any sort of physical constraint, and that includes sweaters, jackets, mittens, hats, and anything else that might keep her tiny face and hands from freezing in the chill. Needless to say, her tendency to pull off her outer layers makes me - a New England mother - frantic. After a blustery Saturday morning spent near the Boston Harbor in which she started to cry from the cold, I resolved to find a new solution to the problem. Magic Beans in the Coolidge Corner neighborhood of Brookline offered just the thing: the Brookspond Buggy Blanket. Artfully-designed to fit with almost any stroller, the Buggy Blanket has a waterproof exterior and a fleece lining, can be zipped to almost completely envelop your little one, and seems - from the perspective of this adult - as warm and cozy as anything you can imagine. Available in range of attractive and parent-friendly colors, the Buggy Blanket can allow you to worry a little less about all of the accessories and still know that your babe will remain reasonably warm and dry.”
