Lands End Backpacks

Have you ever bought one? How did it hold up? How long did it last? How old are your kids, or the person who used it? I saw in a catalog that they have ones for young kids, all the way up to college. I suppose it is for durability for the big books and all. I was considering buying them for my kids this year, a high schooler and middle schooler, but wanted to know what you thought of them. I did buy Swiss Gear in the past and the last one lasted about 3 years but I liked the different colors and patterns that Lands End offers.

Car Seat for Young Toddler

We are searching for a car seat that will be the last one we buy. Here are the criteria we're looking to match: converts to a booster, under $200, AND (the biggie) has straps that are long enough to accommodate a winter coat. We just bought the Graco Nautilus but found that it is too tight for our 20 lb tiny daughter in her winter coat with the straps at the lowest shoulder level. I wonder how older or average-sized kids fit in this car seat. I know that the car seat makers advise that children not be dressed in bulky clothing, but we...

Looking for Boy Bedding

My husband and I have spent way too many hours doing searches for bedding for our son. He's 4 and we want something that will last a long time (quality and interest). We are anti-commercial / anti-character, so even though he loves Disney Cars (the original...we didn't let him see Cars 2 because of things like missiles...yes, we're against that too : - ) we don't want to do his room in that. He's obsessed with all things cars and racing and especially loves muscle cars (think late 60's Ford Mustangs). He loves car shows more than...

Best Lunch Box for Preschoolers?

Hi all ! My daughter will starting VPK in August and since the school year is just ending I thought it would be fresh on everyone's mind of what kind of Lunch box/bag worked best for your preschooler and what features you enjoyed or hated? Also, do you feel it kept the food cool enough until they had lunch? Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated :) btw: I did search similar questions on here before I asked but they were not current & I thought something new might have come out or just tried with new thoughts...

Never Ending Quest to Find the Perfect Mommy Bag!

I am desperately seeking the perfect mommy bag! I have a 2 year old and a 5 month old. I have an Eddie Bauer diaper bag, which is wonderful but just too big to lug around with me everywhere. I have a Lands End little tripper diaper bag, little is the key word here, I can't fit anything I need in there! And I have a Coach purse which I love, but just not practical to fit all my kid's things in there. So what is your favorite mommy/diaper bag? I feel like I have looked everywhere!! What have you found to be your favorite go everywhere do...

Your Favorite Toys & Books for a 1 Year-old

Hi moms, what are your favorite toys and board books for a 1 year-old? We have some Karen Katz books that my DD destroyed so I'm looking for some titles of sturdier lift-the-flap books as well as other cute board books. Also, do you know of any clothing labels that make very simple, modern, all cotton baby clothes without any ruffles, bows, embroidery, etc.? I just want something very plain, like the basics at BabyStyle. Thanks for your help.
