Jennifer Garner and Seraphina Enjoy A Park Play!

How cute! While older daughter Violet was at school Jennifer Garner spent some time with her youngest daughter Seraphina at the park in Santa Monica!

 

Seraphina showed she's very independent now. The 22-month-old carried her own little purse, toted her doll(Corolle's Bebe Charmeur) and swang on the bars at the park all by herself.

The busy actress does a great job of jugging her schedule and making sure that she has special time for each of her daughters. In August she was photographed enjoying a mommy datenight with just Violet where the pair rode in a horse drawn carriage through Central Park and then went to see Mary Poppins.

ABC Kids Expo 2010: iCandy 2011

When Luxury stroller manufacturer iCandy crossed the pond earlier this year and introduced 3 of their signature strollers, they were met with excitement from North American parents.


I was first introduced to the line in 2007 when the company's second stroller - the apple was being launched. Shortly after, a doubles kits was introduced that revolutionized double strolling forever. With the addition of a bracket and a second seat, the apple was the first stroller that could be converted for a second child or infant if necessary.  

Now 3 years later iCandy has lots of new stuff coming that will make strolling a dream for parents.

The Peach!  Finally, we will be able to purchase the much anticipated Peach Blossom and Twin! They have both been available overseas for a while, but will be in store here soon.

Suitable from birth, the Blossom will accommodate a toddler seat, bassinet and infant car seat in the back and toddler seat in from.


Also suitable from birth, the Blossom Twin can do 2 car seats, 2 bassinets, 2 toddler seats or a variety of other combinations.  


Both strollers feature a 17.3lb frame, and extra large shopping basket, freestanding chassis when folded and a unique one hand fold mechanism that folds to a size similar to a single stroller.  

New for 2011 iCandy has designed a 3-wheeled version of the Peach with a brushed silver frame and black tires.

 

The iCandy Cherry will come in a really nice Special Edition. Taking inspiration from the iconic Union Jack, with classic regal colours and stylish finishing touches, the new cherry benefits from all the practical features which created our original cherry and comes as a complete package including stroller, carrycot, luxury superfleece footmuff, changing bag, parasol, parasol /cupholder clamp and raincovers.


Also shown, but only as a prototype so no pictures were allowed, was the new Strawberry. This new single takes iCandy's luxury features to the next level by offering a tweet bassinet and toddler canopy.

Radio Flyer Introduces First-Ever Wagon for Babies
Radio Flyer, a leader in outdoor play since 1917, is launching the first wagon of its kind - The Comfort Embrace. This unique wagon is designed to accommodate the growing family by safely holding a baby and an older toddler or child. 

Tested to ASTM stroller safety standards, the Comfort Embrace Wagon™ includes a cradling infant seat with a five-point safety harness that can be removed as the child grows, providing access to a second toddler seat. Working with child safety experts, Radio Flyer specially designed the cradling infant seat to keep babies six months and older safe and secure. 

Radio Flyer has outfitted the Comfort Embrace Wagon™ with innovative and deluxe features including precision non-tip steering, foot action safety brakes and Dura-Tred® tires. This is also the first Radio Flyer wagon to feature two adjustable and removable canopies with UV protection as well as a fold away extra-large storage bag and separate rear storage compartment.

It's nice to see that Radio Flyer is designing out of the box to accommodate families with kids of all ages. More parents who opt to use a wagon over a double stroller in the Summer time for trips to the market or amusement park will love that the Comfort Embrace Wagon™ will grow with their family.

SJP & Her Girls Enjoy A Saturday Stroll

Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted enjoy a Saturday stroll and some time at the park with her twins Marion and Tabitha yesterday.



Armed with the help of a nanny, the actress took turns playing with both girls on the slides and swings before heading home.

While we know that Sarah has a collection of fabulous double strollers, yesterday she pushed an Uppababy Vista with the Rumble Seat attached.

It's funny that she baby crocs tied to the side.  I wonder if she's using them as teethers?
