We are super psyched to have partnered with Uprise Art to present artist Rebeca Raney at Babesta! We took down our awesome pink unicorn from our arched wall, and the folks from Uprise proceeded to hang a series of Raney's black and white paintings on wooden plaques against our grey wall. Her style is simple and her subjects are mouthless (much like our fave feline, Hello Kitty) yet seem to inhabit a happy world of flowers, llamas and flowing hair.
Raney, born in 1980 in Miami, now creates her artwork from her Brooklyn studio. She recently collaborated with Madewell for a capsule collection, and had a solo show at the prestigious Art Basel Miami. We're stoked to have her in the house at Babesta! Check out her work in the store at 56 Warren Street, NYC or online at www.babesta.com/rebecca_raney.

This week two strollers marketed on their manoeuverability enter the Babesta ring. Who will come out on top and who will be left with their wheels spinning?THE BABY JOGGER CITY MINI:
Patented Quick Fold technology allows you to fold with one hand and get going easily with this stroller; the folding system also features a removable auto-lock to keep the stroller folded while you go. The padded seat reclines to almost flat and features a vented seat top and retractable weather cover and a multi position sun canopy with clear windows. The City Mini features a universal accessory mounting bracket and ample storage both behind and under the seat. This clearly infinitely customizable stroller is three-wheeled with a swivel front wheel for easy manoeuverability that locks in place for when you have to cover som
We're super excited right now, since we just received part 3 of our Mini Rodini shipment! We've officially received everything for Fall/Winter 2013 from this designer, which means we get to get busy doing one of our favorite things: creating outfits! We'll be posting about all this new stuff - and there is a lot of it - for a while to come, but we'll give you a sneak peak....
[caption id="attachment_1981" align="aligncenter" width="500"] Since we check everything out upon receiving which entails unfolding everything, I held this one up and I'm pretty sure I'd fit in the biggest size we carry. The sleeves would be a little short, but I kind of want it...[/caption]
Every now and again we switch up the floor at Cribz to move another piece on that we haven't shown in a while. We're selling our FS of Kalon Studios Caravan Crib and Dresser to make way for something else super stylish (you'll see!) Since Kalon is usually a bit of a wait, this could provide a nice edge to an eager parent-to-be looking for one of the flyest nurseries out there. We adore this crib & its pop of color!!! Come in & see it or call us at 646 290 5508.
Enjoy and please share! We are thrilled to be able to introduce the Mimi & Magic Forest video! We had so much fun with the Mimi story, we couldn't stop at still pictures. We really wanted to offer up a living, breathing fashion story, featuring the highlights of the store (Oeuf cribs, Bugaboo strollers, cool knit toy pigeons & taxi ride ons and of course our range of cool indie fashion -- Mini Rodini, ESP No. 1, La Miniatura, Munster Kids!)
Listen to the store of Mimi, a city girl who finds herself in the country & embarks on a magical adventure!
Be sure to comment on Youtube! Tell us what you think! Where should Mimi go next? We'd love to hear your ideas!

It's a real menagerie of strollers these days between the Cameleon, Donkey, Bee, and now the newest in our "zoo", the Buffalo! This stroller is hearty, with big wheels for negotiating rugged terrain. The carry handle is tested with weight on it so it's kosher to hang your diaper bag on it without worry of affecting chassis. The extendable handlebar is huge so can give the perfect push for someone tall and someone diminutive. The under seat basket is supersized as well giving it lots of storage space, and it folds all in one piece making it easy to get into the car or store away! In essence, we dig it! Pop in the store and give it a whirl :))

In Round One of lightweight strollers we brought you two amazing contenders: the Maclaren Volo and the Uppababy G-Lite. This week, we're taking things up a notch and bringing you not two but three next level lightweights. We think you'll be impressed...
THE UPPABABY G-LUXE:
We're in a new weight class with these three contenders; the G-Luxe weighs in at 13.4 pounds. But with that new weight class come more features! In addition to the standard water and stain resistant, machine washable, removable seat pad, the hand level, finger folding triggers, the stand alone
