Cute cover-up

As winter creeps in, our thoughts turn to stylish ways to keep our little ones cosy and warm when we're out and about. We've fallen in love with the BabbaCover, a car seat cover that keeps baby wrapped up and protected from wind, snow and in the latest versions, harsh sunlight.

The BabbaCover features windows on front and back for ventilation and easy viewing or access to baby. There are also side pockets to keep your handy bits and an elastic opening up top to allow for a secure grip on your car seat handle. The BabbaCover fits all standard infant car seat carriers and comes in a range of funky-fab designs. We're particularly keen on the 'GQ Guillen' in SnuggleFleece as pictured.

Yo Bubba Bubba

So I know Hype Baby has been sleeping on this one, but I just rented out the Yo Gabba Gabba It's Time to Dance DVD and I have to admit I'm hooked. The intro sounded hectic but, within minutes, I was grinning insanely and ready to boogie down with my bubbas.

The popular Nick Jr. show features zany characters, juicy colours and positive messages (e.g. 'eat your fruits' and 'brush your teeth') set to a crazy-funky-cool soundtrack blending old-school hip hop beats, dance pop and even electronica.

The first DVD from the series, It's Time to Dance features cameos from Elijah Wood and Tony Hawk. This Halloween, Mr. Brangelina himself gave the show some extra stardust by dressing up as central figure DJ Lance Rock.

Yo Gabba Gabba mania continues to sweep the States with the release last month of the soundtrack Music is Awesome and the live show hitting the road nationwide. Whether your kid's already a fan or, like ours, normally restricted to ad-free kids TV, the Yo Gabba Gabba DVD should make a much-played prezzie this Xmas. For more of the mayhem, check 'em out on their web site or on YouTube.
