Your Newborn Can Literally Be a "Babe in Toyland"

I am dating myself, a little, by sharing with you fond memories of watching Walt Disney pictures “Babes in Toyland” when I was just young. It was old when I watched it, back when you went to Video Tyme and chose from a wall of VHS or Beta movies. There was no Hollywood Video, Blockbuster, and I’m sure Netflix wasn’t a twinkle in anyone’s eye!

No, just the joy of walking into the children’s section and viewing a wall of white, plastic VHS tape holders with pictures of various Disney movies or cartoons. My brother and I always chose the movie we wanted to see based on the carton picture. But I will never forget the day we saw and chose “Babes in Toyland” and remember how nostalgic I felt watching a movie based around toys, toy making, and Christmas.

When I first saw the Badger Basket Convertible 2-in-1 Bassinet and Toy Chest, immediately my mind began playing the song, “Toyland…toyland…dear little girl and boy land.” What an absolutely useful, darling and practical combination of two of life’s joys – newborn babies and toys – for which of course you need a toy chest!

This beautiful little rocking bassinet is anchored onto a white, wooden storage compartment that can be used to keep your most used items handy – blankets, diapers, wipes, extra clothing, etc. The handy – and portable – bassinet can be lifted off its’ base and transported anywhere in your home or travels. Then, when the baby has outgrown the beautiful bassinet, you simply attach the provided wooden sides to the bottom storage compartment and it magically becomes baby’s first toy chest to be enjoyed for many years to come.

Due to it’s white nature, the toy chest can be sanded and painted any color to blend with your d閏or, or you could become creative and wallpaper the sides with the nursery wall border. The sky is the limit with this blank canvas and your customization can make this one of your favorite memoirs from your baby’s childhood.

The bassinet itself can be purchased in different nursery appropriate colors such as white, ecru, sage, pink, and blue, in either a traditional ruffled style or a sophisticated pleated style sure to catch the most critical eye. The toy chest/storage compartment is situated on caster wheel rollers so the bassinet can be easily switched to a rocking cradle with a quick flip of the wheel, for those times when your newborn needs a little comforting rocking motion.

Whenever I think of a tiny newborn baby in the comfort of one of these toy chest bassinets, I cannot help but get warm fuzzies inside and smile – because literally, your little one has become a real-life “Babe in Toyland.” And I love the thought of that.
