Great Gift: Kobert Waterproof Case
This is a little more parent-tech than baby-tech, although if your baby is a drooler this may help! I received a Kobert Waterproof Case for review this week and the first thing I did was their suggested “tissue test.” Put a tissue inside, close the two clasps and submerge it into water for five minutes.

It’s Raining Babies
Baby Shower Planner is an application for Android devices that’s a soup-to-nuts helper for organizing and planning–you guessed it!–baby showers. It comes pre-loaded with more than 125 items, and you can save/edit the app’s data to other computers for ease of entry. [More]
Baby’s First Music Player
                          Most every adult has had the experience of being driven nuts by a toddler toy that plays the same song over. And over. And over. Ralph Waldo Emerson wasn’t referring to tykes in his quote, “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds…”–but it’s an apt description nevertheless. [More]
Send those baby pics more simply
Having a new baby introduces a lot of complications — including sending photos of your infant to all your friends and relatives, on all the various services they might be using. A new service named KidPost aims to simplify that for you, by consolidating all the shots on all the sites, and sending them in one email message to those people such as your grandparents who might not be the most tech-savvy… You can still share photos wherever you like — just add the hashtag “#kidpost” and those pictures are later consolidated into a daily message.

Take a hike, baby!
Some baby carriers area almost baby-sized — but the Bitybean is an “ultracompact” carrier that can fit in purse when not in use. It’s made of machine-washable nylon/polyester, with an optional fleece infant liner. It weighs just 8 ounces and is “smaller than a water bottle,” but it will let you front- or rear-carry for infants 3 months old, from 8-40 pounds, with anatomically designed shoulder and waist straps.

Both Big and Mini Bilibos
All right, you’re asking, “What the heck is a Bilibo and why does it come in two sizes anyhow?” The Bilibo “combines a rocking chair, spinning top, cradle and tunnel in one single toy,” says its maker Kid O. Bilibo arouses curiosity, engages the imagination and playfully trains basic motor skills and balance, the company adds. [More]
Start singing, baby!
This gadget is more than just an amplified microphone: turn the mic on “and a glowing baby-animal will appear on the mirror with a mic in the hand” to join your tot in a tune. And it’s more than just songs: With its Activity Cube Center, “everywhere baby turns there is something to do and learn,” maker WolVol says. [More]
3D “printed” heart helps save baby’s life
3D “printing” is a new manufacturing technique that sprays out solid material like an inkjet printer, building it up layer by layer into a larger object. The first 3D printed items were simple lumpy toys. But the technology has advanced fast — and now surgeons have used a 3D model of an infant’s heart to prepare for life-saving surgery. [More]
Kids, watch this!
Dick Tracy would be envious: it’s not just a watch, it’s a camera!
With the Kidizoom Smartwatch, “young photographers can take photos and videos on the go,” VTech says.
The color touchscreen can be set with 50 clock-face designs.
There’s also a voice recorder, with “wacky voice-changing effects,” and four learning games. [More]
