I love when some of my favorite brands come out with new items – and always love experiencing new brands. Here are some of my current favorites.
Looking for some new gifts for little ones and their parents?

The extensive toy collection includes rattles, bean bag plushies, musical toys and finger puppets that are feature-rich for baby’s developmental stages.

The collection is available at retailers nationwide including Babies”R”Us, BuyBuyBABY and kohls.com.
My 2 & 1/2year old has long graduated to regular drinking cups, but I was definitely hesitant to handing her our normal glasses for fear they would break. Luckily, the Siliskin glass is a 6 oz glass cup encased in a shock absorbing silicone protective sleeve (a Siliskin) so even if it gets dropped, we are safe! Kids can now drink out of a "big kid" glass cup just like mom and dad. The Siliskin sleeve also makes the glass cup easy to hold and grip. 2-pack $12.95; silikids.com
This is definitely one of those items you don't realize you need until you have it. The Lulyboo Baby Lounge Lights + Music Travel Bed combines elements of a crib, bassinet, playpen and changing station into one portable, compact carrier. This travel bed includes a removable, netted canopy for breathability and a three-in-one soother that uses music, lights and vibrations at various volumes and settings to help baby rest. The fold-and-go design makes it easy to transform the bed into a portable, lightweight backpack. Any new parent would love this one. $79.99; lulyboo.com
