Mommy Poppins Preschool Connection

moms, New York CIty, TravelSonjie SolomonComment

We are so grateful to the Mommy Poppins team for inviting us to be part of the Preschool Connection event that was held at the Dwight School this weekend. Anna's been very supportive of Hatch Things since she received a SureShop bag earlier this year and we had a chance to collaborate. Hopefully just the first of many!

Special SureShop bags were given to all attendees. It's so fun to see the expression on someone's face when we explain what the bag does. There is an instant look of recognition and appreciation by all who've had the experience of strollers falling over. If you'd like to work with us, we would love to hear from you! We spoke to many schools and programs with ideas on co-branding our bags and customizing our products. Please feel free to reach out at: hello at hatchthings dot com.

One highlight for me was meeting Elizabeth who is an alum and in admissions for Sacred Heart-91st St in Manhattan. My high school in the midwest was part of the Sacred Heart network of schools and now that I've made the connection, I hope to tap into the extensive network here in NY. But sadly, with 3 boys, I won't be sending anyone to the all-girls school. And I'm not sure I could ever wrestle any of them into a uniform! 

The event also gave us a change to give a sneak peek at the new product we are working on. We received so many positive and thoughtful comments and people wanted to buy our prototypes off the table! Please make sure to follow us on Instagram for more details and announcements. 

Urban SureShop Adventures

For city parents, their stroller is like their car. Whether it is for pick-ups or running to playdates, the stroller becomes a way to get around with your little one as you lug and load up your everyday essentials.

We recently spotted our #SureShop bag around NYC on adventures - both practical and fun. Check out some of our favorite bloggers as they explore with their SureShop bags in tow.

Brooklyn Adventures with the SureShop

New York CIty, SureShop, Products, Travel, momsSerena NorrComment

Summer in the city is a great way to explore with the kids. In between camps and trips, we love to take the time to re-discover our city, and of course that always means a well-packed SureShop bag filled with snacks, diapers, and bathing suits. We recently took our SureShop bag to DUMBO and Brooklyn Bridge Park for a carefree day of exploring and picture-taking. And, we spent our day not having to worry about our stroller tipping over, even with all our stuff for the day, thanks to our SureShop!

We started our day by checking out the Plexiglass House by Tom Fruin - soaking in the colors and wonder that was set against the backdrop of Manhattan.

We then went to see Jeppe Hein: Please Touch The Art and the collection of mirrors that was also beautiful set amongst the backdrop of Manhattan.

Through the walk and adventure, we loved having our SureShop bag in tow for easy and quick access to snacks, and later our bathing suit for some water play at Brooklyn Bridge Park. The clips on our SureShop kept the bag from tipping the stroller and, after we finished getting our little ones wet, we clipped the suits on the outside so not everything inside got wet!

Here's to endless adventures in your city or town this summer!

How do you #StyleYourSureShop?

SureShop at Downtown Disney

The SureShop bag is super versatile for travel. We were so excited to receive some fun pictures from Chelsea Lanese, a FIT4MOM club owner in Orlando, Florida, who rocked her SureShop bag in Downtown Disney.

Check out her review below and be sure to get your SureShop bag here

I love my bag! I take it everywhere!! It has been so perfect to take to the amusement parks and Downtown Disney. We have our Grand Opening  [FIT4MOM South Orlando] next week and I'm so excited to have it to hold my bands and water.

Here are a few pictures from the first day we got our bag and took it with us to Downtown Disney (now we just keep it in our car to attach to our stroller the second we get the stroller out of the car - just part of our routine now). 

We would love to see how you #StyleYourSureShop! Simply share your pictures with us @HatchThings on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram

SureShop in Montauk

Travel, SureShop, New York CIty, momsSerena NorrComment

 

We love having adventures with our kids. Living in NYC, we are so lucky to be able to experience so many unique destinations that aren't too far from the heart of the city. And, with the temperature and humidity rising, there's no better escape than a beautiful beach.

Recently, our team (and Neon Coral SureShop bag) hit the beach for a day of fun in the sun in Montauk, New York. A popular destination for families and sun dwellers, Montauk offers the perfect escape from the city without being overly crowded.

For this beach trip, our #SureShop bag was filled to the brim with essentials for our little one, including diapers, wipes, snacks, and sunscreen. 

After a day at the beach, tons of sand managed to creep into the SureShop but we were able to easily brush out the sand so we didn't have to take it home with us. Our SureShop is also super easy to fold so we can take it with us everywhere. And, it was also easy to wash so it is ready for the next adventure!


What is your favorite weekend trip with your #SureShop bag?

SureShop on the Move

We had an incredible time at the New York Baby Show (complete recap on that soon). As we get ready for summer, we are loving your fun and useful pictures showing us how you #StyleYourSureShop.

 

Check out @fit4mom_monterey who took the #SureShop to the beach! We love how she clipped it on her stroller to soak in the views and get a great workout while toting her exercise gear in our lightweight bag.


I spy a #SureShop bag in use during this Fit4Mom Stroller Strides class in Newark, CA! We are so excited that more and more Fit4Mom instructors are contacting us and telling us that they are recommending our bag to all of their members!

 

Here's a recent special request where a customer asked to have their #SureShop monogrammed. She's going to use it as a handy spare tote when travelling. What do you think? We'd love your suggestions for new colors, patterns and trims! 

 

Here we are exploring NYC with our little one with our #SureShop in tow. We can't wait to explore more of NYC this summer. Where will your SureShop take you?

Love your SureShop? Be sure to share all of the ways you #StyleYourSureShop so that we can share it with our HatchThings community.


SureShop and Cold Snap Video Review

New York CIty, moms, Products, SureShop, Travel, ColdSnap baby coverSerena NorrComment

We love to see the SureShop and the ColdSnap in action! Recently, we met a Brooklyn mom of two, happily using her SureShop and ColdSnap! She loved how her SureShop kept her stroller standing, and how she could use her ColdSnap to keep her baby snug and warm, whether she used it over her carrier or as a stroller cover. Check out this fun video recap! Please keep sending us your video recaps or pictures of how you #StyleYourSureShop.
