10262071_10153518028667799_4845909104012565190_n

That’s right kids! We’re participating in a giveaway for the ages with our friends at Nook.

We are so excited to be included in this giveaway that promises to bring the best of Wee Urban to the forefront.

We are giving away a lifetime supply of sleep bags… Meaning a 0-6, a 6-18 and an 18-36! You will never have to buy a sleep bag for your son or daughter if you’re lucky enough to win this prize. So you better enter, and enter now!

But if you’re stubborn, like myself, and need more incentive to spend your time wisely… I’ve put together a list and description of all the other brands participating. They. Are. Awesome.

 

nookNook

Well first, we need to highlight our hosts. Nook Sleep Systems are at the top of their class in terms of bedding for our little ones. They are so great, that I’ve asked them multiple times to make me a bed to nap on at work, unfortunately, my boss won’t allow it, and well… they’re a bit small! But they are perfect for your little one. Check out all the styles by clicking here.

Our favourite product is the Pebble Pure – Pacific, I’m partial to the colour, but every product from Nook is the same… AMAZING. So you can’t go wrong… However, we may have picked the Pacific colour because we may have a Pacific coloured sleep bag on the horizon… Who knows? Definitely not me.

AirflowGreyBlackOtherPic

Lillebaby

Another friend of ours from our home country, Lillebaby is an industry leader in Toddler Carriers. They blend amazing functionality and durability, with a unique and comfortable style that we have yet to see matched. Carrying the babes around isn’t the easiest thing in the world, wouldn’t you want all the help you could get? If the answer is yes, click here.

Our favourite product is the Airflow, because Devin sweats, a lot. If there’s a product that will allow me to be cool when I have another human attached to my body, I’m all for it.

 

puj

Puj

Keeping everything clean is tough. Puj… is there for you. Their slogan is “Simplifying Parenthood” and they’ve succeeded in doing so. Whether it’s bathtubs for the baby, towels for the toddler, or cups for the kids, Puj is there to make everything simple, and keep everything clean and tidy. Find out how here.

Our favourite product is the Puj Snug… Safety is imperative and this product stylishly covers up all bathtub taps at a very reasonable price. It is a truly amazing and innovative product.

 

 

infant-kickee-pantsKicKee Pants

Any essential that you need, KicKee Pants has it. Much like Wee Urban, they offer a wide variety of apparel that is stylish, comfortable and affordable. If your kid rocking some sweet style isn’t enough, there’s something there for the mama’s too! Check out their full line here.

Our favourite product is the Swaddling Blanket in Oasis Monkey because we honestly miss our monkey print, and we haven’t found something new to do with it… so we’re just glad someone else is showing some love to our primate friends.

Little Unicorn

This amazing brand has some of the sweetest modern style we’ve seen yet. They’ve taken some old school ideas and gave them new school flavour and it’s adorable, functional, sustainable and price conscious. It’s almost unbelievable how much we love Little Unicorn, almost unbelievable as a Unicorn… See what we did there?

Our favourite product is the Marindale Backpack, you can’t go wrong with this bag, from the style, to the comfort to the protective iPad pocket, it’s everything you need in a diaper bag that looks nothing like a diaper bag.

Natursutten

I mean if the animated website homepage doesn’t get you excited enough, our love for their products will. Three Words: Natural, Rubber, Pacifier. Every parent wants nothing more than peace of mind at all times when looking after their kids. With Natursutten, you no longer have to worry about the chemicals that are in your baby’s mouth, they are natural, organic, tried and tested.

Our favourite product is the Butterfly Pacifier, with a little more room for the nose which means there’s more room to breathe, the babes is less likely to reject the pacifier, unless we’re talking the Vin Diesel movie, then everyone should reject that…

boon_giveaway500

 

Boon

Universal Sippy Cups! Are you kidding? Where were these when I was a kid, man, I would’ve escaped so many awkward “carpet is now the colour of fruit punch” situations…. These are brilliant! Boon makes them responsibly, and they fit over most cups. Now If only they would make an adult version for a beer glass… hmm…

Our favourite product is the Suds bottle washer… Washing bottles can be a challenge if you don’t have the right tools. This is specifically designed to make it easier, what’s not to love?

Fridababy

Fridababy is a leader in the industry of keeping your kids healthy and reducing the stress of when they are sick. From snotty noses to coughs and fevers Fridababy has a remedy, and they are inventive in how they get it done.

Our favourite product is the FeverFrida because not having to wake your kid to check their temperature is probably the coolest thing we’ve ever heard of. Using the power of Bluetooth (oh technology!) this product is able to check a baby’s temperature every four seconds via a small patch underneath their arm. It is amazing. Check it out.

 

Here’s the instagram links to every brand participating.

Alright folks, if you’ve made it all the way down here, you’re a champ, and you’re now educated on some of the best products out there. I’d give you a little bio about Wee Urban… but I think you know who we are, so then I’ll just say that we may, or may not, have a brand new line of dresses coming very soon, as well as new Cozy Basic prints and colours. Ahh, don’t you just love Spring?

FTD – For The Dads – Devin’s Top 5 Beers for St. Paddy’s Day

st-patricks-daySt. Paddy’s is just one of those holidays that really needs to happen on a Friday or Saturday… Don’t ya agree! Well we’re all adults here, so let’s cut to the chase. There’s nothing like an ice cold beer, (or glass of wine, if you’re classy) after a long day with the kids. For me, considering I don’t have kids, let’s call it a long day with my dog, who whines and needs to go outside far too much, and is afraid of the rain, and snow, anyways.


Sometimes you just need a cold one to take the edge off and properly relax. So in the spirit of St. Paddy’s day. Here are my Top 5 Beer choices. We get a little classy, we get a little sassy, and we’re always tasty.

bud-bottles

Budweiser

Ahh, the old classic, the King, as they say. I once heard a comedian say that he doesn’t drink Heneiken, because when you’re at a bar and have had a few too many. “Heneiken” is just too difficult to articulate, so, that’s where Budweiser comes in. Whether you’ve had 2, or 20. You can always say, “Bud”. It’s perfect for St. Paddy’s as it couples a decent flavour at a great price point. But watch out, because Bud is brewed with rice, instead of wheat, the next day headaches are killer… Of course, a trade off most of us are always wiling to make.

clear2.0_2

Sleeman Clear 2.0

Maybe not what you thought was coming, but definitely an option. I’m a fan of strong, crisp beers, but if you’re looking keep the pounds down and not feel bloated from a night of increased hydration, this is by far the best low-calorie option. It still maintains that crisp Sleeman taste, without making you feel like a hot air balloon. I’ve heard many guys say that they don’t want to touch these types of beers, but listen, it does the same job, and if you feel cleaner doing it, then jump right into it. After all, they all taste the same after a while anyways…

MOLSON COORS BREWING COMPANY - Coors Banquet

Coors Banquet

I guess we can call this the College Beer. There’s just something about Coors Banquet that makes me feel nostalgic, and it is the only beer that I prefer in a can. Call me crazy but I’m not a fan of Coors Light, but the Banquet understands me. It’s golden can, and even more golden taste, make me feel like I’m in Los Angeles watching the Kings beat the Capitals (true story), or I’m back at home, in my childhood bedroom with my mini-fridge stacked with little golden babies. Plus, I personally think it tastes great, and a good can option is always better than a bottle when travelling.

ML Can with Glass

Miller Lite/MGD

Like I mentioned, I’m not a huge fan of light beer, thankfully, I am a fan of Lite beer, (see what I did there, spellcheck is saying it’s spelled wrong) Anyways, Miller Lite is finally in Canada, and that is great news for anyone who likes light beer with good taste. It goes down smooth and easy, and is incredibly affordable. You won’t know what hit you. An honourable mention must go out to it’s ancestor… MGD, those clear bottles, they are just beautiful. Aren’t they?

Guinness-original-logo.svg

Guiness

Well, it’s not St. Paddy’s without being genuinely Irish… and there is nothing more Irish, other than Potato’s, than Guiness. It is probably the only beer I’ve ever enjoyed that I cannot see through, and to honour its tradition, and to not hurt my pocket book, it is a St. Paddy’s only beverage. It doesn’t matter what you’re drinking on March 17th. You have to at least pour one of these out for ol’ St. Patrick!

This beerly beloved blog is brought to you by Wee Urban’s own, Devin Sarges. A constant supporter of the Toronto St. Pats/Maple Leafs – I know. I really do know.

Spring into Spring! & don’t waste a minute!

IMG_1387

Hello Wee Urban World!

How has everyone’s Winter been? Horrible right!?

We are getting ready for Spring, and although the weather has been nothing if not unpredictable. We’ve been on the search for great things to do this Spring!

We found the most AMAZING checklist of 50 Fun Spring Activities! Right here.

Our favourite’s are:

  • See the cherry blossoms
  • Walk on a deserted beach
  • Pick strawberries…
  • … and of course… Mix up a pitcher of margaritas

 

But if you really want to know what we have planned this Spring, all we can say right now is that it rhymes with blue peak leg.

But it’s not blue… or is it?

 

Stay tuned!
