Boogaloo Change 'n Go Diaper Bag by BOOGALOO TOYS

Diaper bags for those on the go

If you’ve ever changed your baby’s diaper at a changing station in a public rest room you will certainly understand concerns about hygiene. That is just one area where the Boogaloo Change ‘n Go system really shines with its (removable) built in change mat that insulates the baby from whatever was there before.

The Change N’ Go System is designed to enable the bags to open quickly and easily to form a handy ‘on the go’ changing station with everything at hand. There is plenty of storage space for baby’s bottles, other essentials as well as mom’s stuff – enough for a long day trip or even an overnight at Grandma’s. Even dad will enjoy these functional fashion backpack diaper bags.

Also see the “Day Tripper,” Toddler Bags in various fabrics and colors online at www.boogaloo-toys.com

Made for busy Moms and Dads these Boogaloo diaper bags can only be described as beautifully practical, a travel solution for babies and parents on the go. 11/30/2007

Boogaloo Buds by BOOGALOO TOYS
Boogaloo Buds by BOOGALOO TOYS

Snuggles, cuddles, giggles and laughs

Plush toys should be all of the above, and they can be. These Boogaloo Buds plush toys are just that and more. They each do something different and they are really fun and are designed to encourage interaction between child and parent.

The cute cow character teaches basic face features in a cartoon-like cow voice. The sheep teaches names of body parts while “Andy Anteater’ is just plain funny making sucking noises. To complement the collection there is “Chelsea Chick,” a unique child operated cuddly nightlight. Batteries are adult accessible and are hidden within an internal Velcro sealed pouch. Built into strategic parts of the Boogaloo Buds are special interactive electronic sensors. This is really a collection because each does different things, but each is sold separately. See them online at www.boogaloo-toys.com. 11/30/2007
