Mothercare is proud to announce the arrival of the all new limited edition Maclaren BMW stroller, available in stores now! Weighing just 5.7kg, the buggy’s lightweight and compact design makes it simple to manoeuvre, carry, and store. It’s the perfect combination of style and functionality. Like Maclaren, BMW has been synonymous throughout its history with high performance, engineering excellence, and innovation. “It’s a shame it only seats one,” is often overheard by the creative teams at Maclaren including Maclaren’s own Carolyn Komminsk, Design Director for the Original British Buggy brand who oversaw this project and its development in collaboration with the BMW Lifestyle team and BMW´s brand licensing agency, Global Icons.

Suitable for babies from 6 months and up, the stroller is loaded with all the features a parent could ask for, and then some. The Maclaren BMW Buggy features a multiple position seat recline, custom BMW insignia race buckle and a BMW interior-inspired removable seat liner. In terms of automotive styling and design touches, Maclaren added BMW reflectors and authentic BMW-inspired wheels that give this buggy a sleek look, while the lightweight chassis and easy, compact fold make it classic.

Along with the mentioned features, here’s a list of the complete characteristics the stroller has to offer:

• Full Coverage Hood: Large, water-resistant hood with viewing windows and UPF 50+ sun protection shields child from the elements.

• Suspension: 4-Wheel suspension allows the buggy to manoeuvre effortlessly over rugged terrain.

• Shopping Basket: The spacious shopping basket beneath the seat provides ample storage. Maclaren’s own heat-reflective material lines the underside of the shopping basket which deflects radiant heat from below to help keep contents and the seat cool.

The stroller is available in two colours: silver and black. As with all Maclaren strollers, the lightweight strollers come equipped with the latest in safety features and meet all Global Safety Standards. These strollers may be light and easy to navigate, but their structure and safety were not compromised in order to make them slimmer. Instead they are easy for parents to use and also strong enough to address any safety concerns a parent might have.

Mommies & daddies – there’s a great new app for our lil’ ones in town and you have to try it out! I’ve always been a great enthusiast for apps that encourage kids to learn languages and this one is targeted to strengthen their Arabic skills.

The app is designed by NA3M Games, which was founded to fill a void in Middle East gaming industry. Founded in early 2013, NA3M (New Arabic Media and “yes” in Arabic) is based in Amman, Jordan. Their wide range of global products ranges from racing, to education; adventure and competitive games. The new app, Yalla Huroof, allows players to dive into a mystical world filled with new ways to learn Arabic. Players are encouraged to complete objectives by learning new letters and words through drawing letters on the screen. They can also unlock new animals and objects to play with as well as cause earthquakes, make fireworks explode, and feed their animals and watch them play with each other while players move through the island learning Arabic.

Parents, please visit the app store and give Yalla Huroof a try, your lil’ ones love it!





Jerry Seinfeld on Raising Kids

This clip from Jimmy Fallon’s talk show with jerry Seinfeld is absolutely hilarious. On raising kids, he says this:

“The bedtime routine for my kids is like this Royal Coronation Jubilee Centennial of rinsing and plaque and dental appliances and the stuffed animal semi-circle of emotional support. And I’ve gotta read eight different moron books. You know what my bedtime story was when I was a kid? Darkness!”

It Gets Easier

It has been a hectic year so far but I’m thankful for everything the last months have given me – my baby twins turn ten months today and I can’t believe how fast the time has flown. I look at them now, how mischievous they’re becoming, and I smile as I’m also trying not to pull at my hair and go crazy trying to keep them safe and also give them the space they need to grow.

But, mommies who are wondering how fast it’ll be before their lil’ newborns grow, it does get easier. The long nights of feeding them every three hours, the constant worrying about colic, SIDS, and all the craziness that comes with infants, it will all pass and you’ll also be wondering how fast the time has gone.

I am trying, though, to take shortcuts during the day to make life a little bit less stressful. I have stopped fretting over every spot on my couches. I am giving myself permission to pile up laundry when all I want to do is watch some TV while my lil’ ones sleep. And, I have allowed myself to have food delivered instead of cooking when I have a million other things to think about.

Which, by the way, is getting a lot easier these days – getting food delivered right to your doorstep without waiting for hours and finding it’s also still warm. I’m all for efficiency – portals and apps that make life less difficult are welcome in my life, I wish they’d invent some to help you with kids! Maybe someday! Anyway, backtracking, there’s a great portal and mobile app that’s come online in Amman – called HelloFood. Mommies, you can use it to have food delivered from various restaurants without any hassle. I would highly recommend you try it when you’re pressed for time – lunch and dinner has gotten that much easier giving you more time to spend running around with your lil’ ones at home. Visit the link below and tell all your friends!


So, mommies, yes it does get easier. Whenever you’re down, stressed, tired beyond imagination, just remember that they get older faster than you know and you will miss the days when all they wanted was to be held by you.


I just came across this amazing website, goldieblox. The goal of GoldieBlox, is to get girls building by using their verbal skills to create a story through a construction set. The objective of this is to boost their confidence while giving young inventors the tools they need to build and create amazing things.

ConstRuction toys have always been perceived as tots for boys. By designing a construction toy from the female perspective, Goldieblox aims at changing this way of thinking and inspiring the future generation of female engineers.

I love, love, love this concept and I’m definitely getting one of these for my lil’ one! Mommies of girls – check it out!
