Bob the Builder

My son caught an episode of Bob the Builder at his grandmom's house and is nuts about it. I was thinking of maybe choosing a DVD of it to put in his stocking at Christmas time. Any suggestions? There seem to be so many out there. Is there sort of a classic one that introduces all the characters to start with? Or is there one that you just know your kids love? Thanks for your thoughts!

Toddler/preschooler Swimming Lessons

My husband wants to have our daughter, who will be 3 in a couple months, start swim lessons. I'm not sure. In the summer time we go to the beach and our neighborhood pool in the summer I encourage her to be in the water. We play in the water, I help her "float," etc. So she is comfortable in water and learning some basic things. My questions are: Would swim lessons at this age be much more than that?

529 College Plan????

Has anyone ever heard of the 529 plan. I was looking on the internet for ways to save money and am considering it for my daughter but not so sure.

Adapting a Single Bob Revolution for Two

Has anyone tried or have any ideas about adapting a Bob Revolution single stroller for two kids?

We are thinking creatively and wondering if anyone has run across any products that provide a safe way to strap our toddler in to the...

Cribs, Car Seats, Bob Revolution, Nordic Cab? Ugggg.

Anyone have a car seat, baby jogger, stroller, crib, glass baby bottles, co-sleeper....any product for a new baby.... that they love? I am overwhelmed by the choices. We are looking for excellent quality and as non toxic, as possible. I understand many of the paints, glues are not good for the baby! Organic is great! I was looking at the Bob Revolution baby jogger, and some kind of car seat that would fit into that for the first several months of use. Also, Nordic Cab's Sport Combo jogger. LL Bean shows both. Thanks so much!

Seeking Critique of BOB Stroller

My husband and I are thinking of getting one of the BOB strollers (we have a great rebate on our credit card), but don't know anyone who actually owns one. If you have one or know of someone who owns one, I would love to hear your feedback. We are considering the BOB with the car seat attachment as well.
