Reinventing the World of Strollers

for-the-grandkids-abiie-st-copyAbiie introduces the world’s first stroller with a built in diaper changing table!

For the baby stroller that really has it all, look no further than the Abiie Good-to-Go (G2G) BabyDeck Stroller. Parents are blown away by the innumerable extra features and conveniences of the world’s first stroller with a diaper changing table built right in.

The Abiie BabyDeck has the appearance of any other stroller, but has easily taken care of all the problems that today’s parents and grandparents face. “Parents need a special privacy spot where they can change anywhere safely and get back to the fun ~ which is where we come in,” said Ken Chuah, co-creator of Abiie.

Don’t use another dirty public restroom to change their diapers. Doctors recommend against using the germ-ridden changing tables in public restrooms, unless parents have a way to sanitize the entire area. Half the time women’s restrooms don’t have changing stations, and the men’s rooms have even fewer. Without restrooms, parents then turn to the floors, lawns, dining tables, and other less than sterile places. Sure, there are tons of changing pads on the market, but parents are just spreading the dirt and germs around when they fold it up and stick it in their bags.

Only the Abiie G2G BabyDeck Stroller provides a truly safe, clean changing area that can be used anywhere! The BabyDeck changing table folds out of the stroller’s seat and is covered with a washable anti-bacterial diaper pad. The stroller is steady as a rock and won’t tip over. There is a built-in hygienic storage compartment to keep diapers and first aid kits uncontaminated, and plenty of storage space for all of mom or dad’s stuff.

The BabyDeck is innovation at its finest, with a number of add ons to make it even more impossible to live without. Some of these include a unique drop down canopy to keep the sun and rain away, fun peek-a-boo windows, a car seat adapter that’s compatible with a wide variety of car seats, and many safety features like a braking system, shock absorbing wheels, and a front adjustable 5 point harness. Even with all of these features, the stroller only weighs 18 lbs., folds up compactly, and stands upright when closed.

Ken and Jane Chuah are the brains behind Abiie. The company started after they were visiting the San Antonio Sea World and had to go the distance ~ to the public restrooms, that is. After having to put their day on hold yet again for a diaper, they decided enough was enough, and Abiie was born. The Abiie G2G BabyDeck Stroller has since hit the ground running, and has been featured in a wide variety of media outlets including People Magazine, Parenting.com, and “CBS News.”

Leading Edge Gifts’ “I’m a Shareholder Kit”

for-the-grandkids-sharehol-copyLeading Edge Gifts LLC recently launched the “I’m a Shareholder Kit” as part of a series of gifts to teach kids and young adults the basics of money and stocks. It was also named a National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) Honors winner.

The Kit/Gift Certificate Combo combines the Kit and a Gift Certificate (of various denominations) that can be used towards the child’s first share of stock – all for $20 off. Prices start at $17 for the Kit and $27 for the Kit plus a $30 gift certificate towards the first share of stock (Disney stock is the most popular choice).

Says author Rick Roman, a former CFO and the founder of Leading Edge Gifts, “The financial meltdown underscores the importance of teaching our kids how to manage money. Feedback from parents has been overwhelming, because they now have a tool that will truly help their kids, and they have fun too.”

The Kit was launched as an addition to the Give A Share program, which allows parents to easily buy a share of stock in a company their child loves.  It is based on feedback from customers who wanted more information to provide to their kids and grandkids when presenting them with a share of stock.
