Andrea Soto of Mimish
The Storage Beanbag has beans on the top and storage on the bottom. The storage compartment can be used for seasonal clothes, bedding, towels, stuffed animals, costumes, and much more. All unsightly clutter is hidden while you sit on it, use it as an ottoman, or watch the kids play with it.
Matt Peglow of Keekaroo
Our story begins in 1967, when our founder Tim Bergeron was a student developing a new type of therapeutic equipment for children. He found this research both exciting and close to home. His daughter was born with Down syndrome and he wanted more than anything to help her live a comfortable life. From his research, he discovered many children in the juvenile market could benefit from these products as well.
Nadine Girard of Ubbi
Made of powder-coated steel, the Ubbi diaper pail is designed to achieve maximum odor control. Easy to operate, this elegant nursery essential is equipped with rubber seals that are strategically designed to lock in odors as well as a damper mechanism for smooth, hermetically sealed closure. Catering to the needs of today’s eco-conscious and savoir-faire parents, the Ubbi diaper pail offers the convenience and value of utilizing any standard trash bag or reusable cloth liner. Offering a modern and sophisticated twist to a once very industrial product, the Ubbi diaper pail includes a child-proof lock and is available in an array of 11 colors – a stylish and promising solution for every nursery.
Dominique de Bourgknecht of Baby deedee
