Brooklyn Adventures with the SureShop

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!

Coney Island Adventures: SureShop Hits the Beach!

SureShop, New York CItySonjie SolomonComment

This past Sunday, we headed to Coney Island to dip our toes in the water and eat the first Nathan's hot dogs of the season. In the early 70s, I loved coming here with my family and now it's my turn to let my kids run around barefoot on the boardwalk, eat hot dogs and cheese fries, play carnival games and ride the Cyclone and make our own memories.

The water was chilly but that didn't stop M from jumping in to have some fun! 

After throwing the baseball around and swimming for a bit, we headed over to Luna Park for some arcade games and rides. Even with our stroller at home, we found a great use for the SureShop! By clipping M's wet clothes to the outside of the SureShop, we were able to avoid getting everything in the bag all wet and letting his clothes dry while we played!

Waiting for the boys to ride the go karts, I took a quick break. Good thing M's soaking wet clothes were able to drip dry while I I sat down on a bench and enjoyed people watching in the sun. 

As New Yorkers, we are so happy to see that Coney Island is roaring back from the rough days after Hurricane Sandy. For more details on how community organizations and the people of New York are working together to make Coney Island better than ever, and to donate to help with the recovery, here are links to 2 great organizations: Coney Recovers (#coneyrecovers) and Brooklyn Community Services.

SureShop and Cold Snap Video Review

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.
