Kids always seem to come up with the rainy day “let’s make a fort” idea the day AFTER we’ve just washed and folded all the extra linens - AKA fort building supplies. But now with the Lucy and Michael Play Tent, fort construction (and de-construction) just got a lot easier.

Inspired by two mothers who were tired of bulldozing tents made of blankets, boxes, and bed frames, the Lucy and Michael Play Tent will save a ton of washing, drying and folding post fort de-construction.

Designed for indoor play, this fun and fully functional play tent allows kids the excitement of a secret fort while keeping the linen closet fully intact. With 5x5x5 foot dimensions, the play tent takes up a minimal amount of room allowing the fort to stay up even when there aren’t any more bad guys around to hide from.

Available in almost a four different prints and patterns, the Lucy and Michael Play Tents can accommodate any sort of event whether it is a tea party, an adventure to the Wild West, or an afternoon lost in pillows and books. Sounds like a perfect rainy day for anyone.

Modern High Chairs You Will Love!

Baby to Booster High Chair

Baby-to-Booster Bentwood High Chair in Natural by Scandinavian Child

A good high chair is an essential in your kitchen when a baby comes along.  It took a while, but a few companies realized that the high chair did not have to be a big bulky eye sore.  Two of our favorites at My Urban Child are by Boon and Scandinavian Child.
 Baby to Booster High Chair

The Baby to Booster by Scandinavian Child is a winner of top industry awards with its sleek modern design.  This high chair easily folds up to a compact easy to store and move size.  It is recommended for children ages 6 months to 5 years.  We like it best for the toddler age.  They will get so much use in their own chair that really looks like a grown up chair made just the right size for them.  Mom and dad will be happy to have the stylish chair at the table and not counting down the days until they can toss it to the curb.  The solid birch construction insures years of use that will be as beautiful the day you out grow it as the day you got it.  IT comes in three color options: Natural with lime, White with tangerine and Espresso with Almond.
Boon Flair Modern High Chair
The other favorite high chair at My Urban Child is the Boon Flair Modern High Chair.  We love the space age modern design.  This chair comes with a pneumatic lift so that you can easily glide the chair to whatever height you choose.  No more preset height positions to limit you.  It also comes with two tray covers and a removable tray that will fit into your dishwasher.  The Boon Flair Modern High Chair is available in two color options: grey with green and white with orange.
