Letters: We Love Meeting New Moms-to-Be

Dear Doodie & Joovy,

We met at the Big City Moms Baby shower last week. I just wanted to thank you for both educating me about the different products that Joovy makes especially the PPSU and glass bottles and for giving me the gift set and samples of bottles which I look forward to personally using and recommending to my patients and friends.  Joovy’s emphasis on durable, high quality products and safety is one that I certainly value and I really appreciate you taking the time to show me some of the different products.

Thanks again!

Joovy ‘Jingle’ Gift Guide 2014

 

joovyjingle-header

We’ve got some ‘jingle’ for your loved ones this holiday season. Here are the hottest and hippest gift ideas from Joovy, guaranteed to bring holiday smiles. With the help of Santa himself, we’ve curated a list that includes something for everyone on your list. And, in the event you need personal shopping recommendations, our elves are eager to help at 877-456-5049. Give us a call!

We all have someone on our list who ‘has everything.’  No worries, we’ve got you covered this season! For this well equipped person, consider the Joovy MoonRoomIt’s a playard from out of this world! Fun, geometric design with loads of space, this playard gives a new dimension to the old standby. Made of high quality materials, the MoonRoom offers FUN & FUNCTIONALITY!

Santa’s tip: Dads have been known to love this far-out piece of baby gear!

Baby’s first vehicle should memorable and Santa suggests a tricycle that grows with your child.  The Joovy Tricycoo  is top of his list for first wheel presents this holiday season! The Tricycoo is simple and perfect for very young babies. Your child does not need to steer, pedal or balance on their own in the beginning.  They simply enjoy the fun and independence of their first tricycle while you guide them with the parent push handle (removable).   When engaged, the parent push handle overrides the steering on the Tricycoo. The surround arms help them learn to balance and give you confidence that they won’t fall out.  The pedals can be easily ‘turned off’ until they are ready to ‘kid power’ the Tricycoo on their own. As they gain confidence, the Tricycoo surround arms and parent handle can be removed for independent tricycling fun!

Santa’s tip: Get yours early. They sold out last year!

Get your little one trailblazing in style. The Joovy Bicycoo balance bike gives them the confidence to take the first step in cycling. Lightweight aluminum frame is easy to control, pneumatic tires offer the smoothest ride and the internal drum brake teaches them how ‘real gear’ works.  What’s even cooler about the Bicycoo? It looks like a real bike!

Santa’s tip: Don’t forget the Noodle (helmet) below. Start with teaching safety early and create good habits for life!

Protect that little noggin with the Joovy Noodle! Introduce safety early and create good habits from day one.  The Noodle comes in six bold colors, has 14 air vents, integrated bug mesh and is designed for babies heads measuring 18.5″ – 20.5″.   Extended visor for maximum protection, nylon straps, pinch guard chin strap, and an adjustable fit dial.  It is a great looking helmet and we think kids will love being ‘safe’ while cycling and doing other outdoor activities.  Meets CPSC Standards.

Santa’s tip: Give a practical gift to each child on your list!

Gone Girl…Have You Seen It?

Carving time out for yourself is crucial when you have children. The other day I snuck in a matinee with a group of friends. Part of me felt guilty going to a movie while my children were at school but that quickly faded as the lights went down and my feet went up in the cushy recliner chair. We were seeing Gone Girl. I was very excited. I had read the book and couldn’t wait to see what they had done with the movie. I was pleasantly surprised. Then I started thinking about my poor friends that didn’t read the book and did not know what they were in for…wow. It’s definitely a movie where you need to be in the right frame of mind when you sit down.   The movie is a work of fiction but as I sat there I thought about how many people can probably relate at some level. Two young people meet and fall in love. They get married. Recession hits. They lose their jobs. Parent gets sick. They move home to care for parent. Parent ends up dying. Fast forward five years and they cannot stand each other. I will leave it here as not to spoil it for those who have not seen it.

 

I should probably clarify that I am happily married and not a psycho. We’ve been married almost 13 years and we’ve been through a lot. We have struggled through custody battles, the birth of three children, the recession, job loss,  aging parents, and starting a new company to name a few.   Life is tough. Marriage is tough.  We are not living in a bubble. It is important to find a way to continue to not only love each other but actually LIKE each other. We always joke that we used to be so much fun, what happened? Life happened. It’s happening. In Gone Girl, the husband isn’t a bad guy and she isn’t awful in the beginning. Life just happens. Struggles will continue to present themselves. The secret is to keep remembering why you liked each other in the first place.  It’s not always easy. But there is always someone out there with a situation worse than your situation. Focus on the positive and work through the other stuff.

 

So thank you Gillian Flynn for yet another reminder that I love AND like my husband.
