Hi Babyloania Moms!
Saya Gita, Marketing Manager Babyloania. Saya ingin sedikit berbagi pengalaman ketika saya mengandung anak pertama saya, Luqman, di tahun 2012. Saya harus merogoh kocek senilai Rp20juta untuk mengisi kamar bayi dengan seperangkat boks bayi, lemari baju, dan baby tafel yang dibuat dari bahan kayu yang bermutu. Penyewaan barang bayi di saat itu belum banyak, apalagi yang menyewakan barang-barang dengan kualitas berkelas seperti Babyloania.
Fast forward to 2017, boks bayi tersebut sudah tidak pernah digunakan sama sekali selain untuk tempat melipat baju-baju anak yang baru disetrika. Karena dibuat dari bahan kayu jadi memang strukturnya masih kuat, namun cat duco-nya mulai menguning dan mengelupas sana-sini. Setelah bergabung di Babyloania, saya hanya bisa menghela nafas penyesalan melihat beragamnya barang yang bisa disewa, dari boks bayi yang bisa menjadi co-sleeper sampai bouncer bayi dengan fungsi dan bentuk yang mutakhir.
Tahun ini, Babyloania mendapat kesempatan untuk berkolaborasi dengan Cotonnier untuk menghadirkan tempat tidur bayi dari bahan kayu yang kuat dengan desain klasik dan berkelas yang tak lekang dimakan waktu. Saya ingat setiap kali melewati Cotonnier, saya sering melihat-lihat furnitur mereka karena super naksir dengan desain dan warna-warna produk mereka yang menarik. Namun apa daya, harga masih di luar budget.
Saya senang sekali karena sekarang, customer Babyloania bisa menyewa crib cantik Cotonnier beserta kelambu dan bedding set-nya di sini:
Hindari kesalahan saya membeli boks bayi yang penggunaannya sangat singkat namun harganya sungguh spektakuler. Sewa hanya di Babyloania dan hemat hingga puluhan juta, namun tetap bisa mendapatkan nursery yang nyaman untuk mommy and baby, serta pastinya… instagrammable! ;)

The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! (Lane Smith) - Hardcover 32 pages
A Special Kind of Love (Stephen Michael King) - Hardcover 32 pages
Boxes might seem an odd medium for expressing love, but for the emotionally reserved father in this touching story, they're just the ticket. Boxed in by his inability to articulate his feelings for his son, he transforms boxes ("Big boxes. Round boxes. Small boxes.... All kinds of boxes!") into kites, castles, bird feeders, go-carts, airplanes and any number of other wonderful things to enchant a small boy. This sensitive tale, an Australian import by a first-time author and illustrator, unfolds in spare prose set against a sweeping backdrop of comical illustrations brimming with energy. King's deft cross-hatching and other distinctive uses of ink refine his casual watercolors, and a childlike sense of play informs his compositions. To show "small boxes," for example, he has Dad adjusting the lens of a microscope; the airplane is the same kind Snoopy flies to fight the Red Baron. The book's sweet, satisfying message will resonate with preschoolers, whose own parental bonds typically form the sum and substance of daily life.

A gentle and comforting story about a small boy and his mother as they discuss the changes in the simple things around them. An egg becomes a chick; a seed becomes a flower; day becomes night. But the important thing--the love they share--never changes. A wonderful progression is maintained throughout in text, page colors, and illustrations. As she did so successfully in Where Does the Brown Bear Go? (Greenwillow, 1989), Weiss employs a two-sentence refrain to reinforce the theme.
It Begins with an A (Stephanie Calmenson & Marisabina Russo) - Paperback 27 pages
PreSchool-K-- Yet another alphabet book nudges its way into a crowded, but receptive, market. It Begins with an A has the child appeal of a riddle book combined with the practicality of an alphabet book. Each page has four pictures, four clues, and a question, "What is it?" In most cases the "what" is easily guessed. For the uncertain, there is a guide at the back with picture and word answers. The illustrations offer adequate support to the text and have a nice mix of ages, genders, and ethnicity. Their childlike simplicity could remind youngsters of their own artwork, although the control of an artist is evident. A muted palette strong in secondary colors may be a relief to those weary of bright splashes of primary color or wispy pastels. Preschoolers will delight in responding to "What is it?"

Fans of the lovable white mouse will adore this story from Lucy Cousins, especially pre-preschoolers who are wondering just what goes on in this mysterious school they've been hearing about. Large print, crayon-bright colors, and thickly outlined pictures make Maisy stories a favorite for the youngest readers (or almost-readers).
