5th Edition and Organic Carriers from Action Baby Carrier!

Action Baby Carrier has some exciting changes happening!

First is the introduction of the new 5th Edition Action Baby Carrier. As always, these carriers and the fabrics they are made from will continue to be made in the USA, but the stap and inner fabrics will now be made using a new 100% cotton canvas.

There will also be a few new design tweaks. Here's what you can look forward to with the new 5th Edition Action Baby Carriers:

- The waist belt will now be extendable from 28" to 55" with no need for an extender belt
- The simple to use sleeping hood will now be 1" longer
- The shoulder strap webbing is 2" longer

The 5th Edition will have three new fabrics in their print line; Square, Wave and Vine. Kiley, Robins Egg and Galaxy will continue to be available with the new design changes and canvas fabric. The 5th Edition will also include Chocolate, Black and Olive in their solid line, all made using the new 100% canvas. You can see the entire 5th Edition line on our website.

We are also excited to announce that they will soon be offering a line of organic carriers! The Action Baby Carrier Organic will be made using the same new updated style of the 5th Edition, but with quality, USA made organic cotton canvas! These 100% organic cotton fabrics are both SKAL and OEKO-TEX Certified.

At $107 each, these will be the most affordable organic soft structured baby carriers on the market, and completely made in the USA! The Action Baby Carrier Organic will come in 4 bright colors contrasted against a solid black body for a sleek, stylish look.

Keeping with tradition, Action Baby Carriers continues to bring you an amazing product at an equally amazing price! Now we just have to wait for them to arrive sometime in the first half of September!

Introducing the Boba 2G Classic

Come meet the newest carrier brought to you by Nap, Inc., the Boba 2G Classic!

These carriers are identical in style to the sleek look of the Boba 2G Organic. If you are not already familiar with the Boba 2G carrier, these carriers are specifically designed with older babies and toddlers in mind. Made to be used from 1 to 4 years (15-45 lbs / 7-20 kg), the Boba 2G comes with removable foot straps that support babies and toddlers’ knees at a natural 90-degree angle. These backpack style carriers are super easy to use for either a front or back carry. The shoulder straps and waist belt have comfortable foam padding that is not too thick or too stiff. They also have a removable hood that you can use to support your little one's head when they fall asleep.

So what are the differences between the Boba Classic and the Boba Organic? First, the Boba Classic is made out of quality cotton fabric, but not organic cotton like the Boba Organic. Second, like the Ergo, the Boba Classic is made in China, where as the Boba Organic is made right here in the USA in Boulder, Colorado. The last difference is the price. The Boba Classic costs $100 compared to $118 for the Boba Organic.

Whether you decide to go with the Boba Classic and the Organic, you are still getting a great carrier for older babies and toddlers at an extremely great value!
