Introducing the bellybuds... Bellybuds are a specialised speaker system that gently adheres to your belly and allows you to safely play music directly to the womb. It's amazing to think that a baby's hearing is fully developed at about 20 weeks. It's even more amazing that memories start at 30 weeks. Come to think about it...I can't even rembember before I was 5 years old, but I do have a shocking memory! So why not let your little one get their groove on with bellybuds? The bellybuds adhere to your belly with medical grade, reusable hydrogel rings. Just plug the cable into...
Welcome to the joys of teething. NOT! Teething isn't any fun for babies, and usually not for parents, either. But luckily in this day and age there are plenty of options to help you through. Sophie the Giraffe has long reigned as the ultimate baby teether. But just recently we've come across the Toofeze. We thought we'd put them side by side and compare the two to see just which is really the ultimate teether. Sophie the Giraffe has a loyal following and is a favorite among celebrities. We love the fact that she is lovingly made in France. It's...
The minimalist parent's dream, the Oeuf Classic Crib is charming, understated and both modern and traditional at the same time... If you can't tell, we love the Classic Crib.  We have only recently become a stockist of the New York based brand and we love that it was all started by two parents, Sophie and Michael who wanted to create children's products that focused on quality, practicality and function.  Good job team Oeuf! Now, back to the cot.  The Classic Crib does everything you'd expect a cot to do - it has two adjustable heights for you to change as your...
Two of the heavyweight champions in the baby pram game are the Bugaboo Cameleon and the Joolz Day Pram and too often we find that people are deciding between these absolutely stunning prams.  So today, we decided to give our honest thoughts when comparing between the Bugaboo and the Joolz and why people decide to buy one or the other.   The Price There is not a lot of difference between the two which makes it helpful to compare.  The Cameleon RRP is $1559 and the Joolz Day RRP is $1699 so the Joolz is $140 more expensive typically than the...
At Baby Zone, we are often asked "What is the best stroller to travel with?" or "I am travelling overseas, what pram should I buy?".  Well today, we have decided to compare two of the best options, the hugely popular Bugaboo Bee and the new kid on the block, the Babyzen Yoyo.   The Price Firstly, we must talk about the price of these two great, nifty strollers.  They are certainly at the higher end of the price range but their functionality and design justifies the price.  The Bugaboo Bee is significantly more expensive at $949 RRP and the Babyzen...
Babies grow so fast. So when considering you’re next purchase it’s important to think about how long is this product really going to last us. This is what’s so awesome about the Tripp Trapp! The Tripp Trapp can take you from 6 months (newborn with the purchase of the additional newborn set) all the way through to adulthood. Quality family time is often spent around the dinner table. So it’s important for the newest member of the family to have their special place at the table. The Tripp Trapp is pushed right up to the table (that’s why it doesn’t...
When travelling in a car, children are required to be seated in a child restraint up until the age of 7.   So you’ve noticed that there’s heaps and heaps of car seats to choose from.  Where to start… Basically, the option for a newborn is either a convertible car seat (suitable from birth to 4 years) or alternatively a capsule (which generally speaking is suitable from birth to 6 months).  So one might ask why would I “need" a car capsule?  Let’s consider the two options. The Capsule  The advantage of a capsule is that you can place your baby...
We love when Australia is the first. And this is one of those times. Britax have released a world first stroller with e-brake technology. This stroller has a touch sensitive handle that detects when you have your hand on the handle and automatically brakes the moment you let go - giving you ultimate peace of mind! That's definitely the coolest feature with the e-brake stroller. It has a few other features that we really like from the Steelcraft Strider Compact. That is, if a second child is coming along, you can just add on a second seat and not worry...
