It’s here, at long last, our summer! So grab the babe and hit the road. Get out to local festivals, lakes, road-trips and splash parks. We’ve hand-picked the best gear for your fun-filled summer.

Backyard Fun

A Sprinkle & Splash play mat ($52 on Perfect for hot days in the backyard with your little one.

The Runners Bike ($139): Local to Alberta, this bike is missing its pedals to help give your tyke the balance she needs to learn to ride.

For the Pool

The Swimaway canopy ($66.50 on It can be challenging to hold a squirmy baby in the pool for long periods of time. This offers shade and a fun way for your little one to splash in the pool.

The cutest swimwear ($10-$30 at Rash guards are a must for little ones who spend any amount of time at the pool or spray park and Gymboree always seems to have the best prints, patterns and coordinating accessories. Don’t forget the adorable hats and sandals that all match.

On The Go

Car-seat or Stroller Canopy ($49.95 at Strolling through summer means providing shade for your babe so she can keep on snoozing while you’re out and about. This canopy is chic and functional and will take you from infant to toddler.

Stroller Cooling Pad ($46.95US at A cooling pad that keeps your child’s body temperature regulated, not just ‘cold’ or chilled.
