Corrections: Young America by Stanley review

Young America by Stanley recently contacted us with a couple of corrections and updates to their review in the Baby Bargains book. In the 10th edition of Baby Bargains, we complained that Stanley didn’t use premium hardware like self-closing drawer glides on its dressers. However, in 2012, Stanley did add this feature to its line. […]

Corrections/update: JoJo Bedding

  The good folks at JoJo Designs crib bedding contacted us with some corrections to the review of their company in our latest book. Here are some corrections: In a past edition of BABY BARGAINS, we stated that all of JoJo Bedding’s crib sets were dry clean only. That is not correct—a FEW of JoJo’s […]

The phone number we have listed in our book for Young America by Stanley has changed. It is now 276-627-2000.

Bonavita/La Jobi confusion

Just a quick heads up—in the latest version of our book (8.1), we moved our review of the company known as Bonavita/La Jobi to La Jobi in the cribs chapter. In the past, we referred to this company as Bonavita (they sell nursery furniture under the names Bonavita, Babi Italia, La Jobi, Nursery 101, etc).  […]

Correction: Beco carrier can only be used face in, not out

On page 534, we state that the Beco baby carrier can be used with the baby facing either out or in toward the parent. That is incorrect—it can only be used with baby facing toward the parent. (FYI: this carrier is also called the Beco Butterfly 2 or the Eco Baby carrier).

Corrections: Creations cribs, Chicco stroller, Sunshine Kids Radian and more

Yes, the 8th edition of our book is brand new, but we do have three corrections to report: • Creations (crib chapter) imports cribs from China and Vietnam, not just Vietnam as reported in the book. This is a good example of how reporting this info is a moving target—manufacturers often shift production to take […]

Reader: Pali new Asian-made collections not up to snuff, quality-wise

Reader Carl K writes in today to point out an error in our book: in the crib reviews, we said Pali’s new Asian imported collections are made very similarly to their Italian/Canadian furniture (which are made of birch). Carl points out this isn’t accurate: I just wanted  to let you know that there’s a bit […]
