A TOUCH OF BLACK
While you don’t have to limit your purchases to items that are colored black, if you care to go with this classic color, Babybox.com can accommodate your desires nicely.
You can find black in diaper bags. The Black Tea Cate Diaper Bag is a stylish way for Mom to bring along all the stuff she needs for herself and baby. The bag is made from wipeable microfiber and equipped with lots of compartments inside and out. Includes a changing pad. You’ll have everything you need and look great.
There is black in furniture. The new Nurseryworks Uptown Twin Bed is quickly becoming a favorite among our customers. Designed taking inspiration from the architecture style of 15th century Britain, the Uptown Twin Bed is both modern while having old world charm. Available in black lacquer combination, the bed is enhanced with high contrast reveals and accessorized with over-scaled brass hardware.
Black is all over the place in nursery decor. For example, in lighting. This Cinderella chandelier in black is a magnificent way to light your room. The 5 arm fixture’s elegant crystals and design will add a very special touch to your decor.
Of course you will find this classic color in clothing too. Like here in the black Signature ruffle shirt from the Elizabeth Daniel Shirt Collection. The Ruffle is fun and flirty. It looks great peeking out from a v-neck sweater or jacket. It is even adorable worn alone. Dress it up or dress it down!
And don’t forget to check out the black in our nursery section, like pillows and blankets too. This classic black and white chevron striped personalized monogrammed pillow is a great accent pillow for either your home, vacation beach house or outdoor living space. Sophisticated in color and modern in style, perfect for the most fashion forward of homes.
Happy Black Friday & Have Fun Shopping!

Is there some principal of nature which states that we never know the quality of what we have until it is gone? ~ Herman Melville
An undeniably true quote that many can relate to, especially after facing adversity. Melville, a New York City native, would have every right to expound this theory again in more recent times, in light of New York’s recent tussle with Hurricane Sandy. Perhaps that nearness to the ocean got into his skin and soul, as even after moving away from it, he was drawn back to the sea again and again. In fact, an 18-month voyage on the whaling ship Acushnet, started in 1841, turned into four years spent abroad. The experiences on this whaler and subsequent other ships certainly left their mark, as they are said to have inspired Melville’s most famous work – “Moby Dick”. This Great American Novel was published today, November 14th, way back in 1851. It is hard to believe that the story of Ishmael and Captain Ahab’s adventures aboard the Pequod, as they pursued the Great White Whale, is 161 years old. The novel’s status as a classic tale of good and evil, as well as examining our place in the universe, sparked a love affair with the innocuous whale that lives on today.
Would you call this whale fearsome? Hardly! In fact, this Oopsy Daisy “Whale” nightlight instead brings a cute and lovable whale into your little one’s room. This nightlight can be easily wiped clean with a soft, dry cloth and is ideal for your child’s room as it does not have a glass surface to break. You can personalize the nightlight with your child’s name or any other word or phrase like “Good Night”. This nightlight is designed by Jill McDonald, whose biography is included with each unit.
This whale is even less intimidating, especially when worn by your little girl. The personalized whale pattern baseball tee shirt will look adorable on your little girl. Designed with hot pink and sage green whale print, it is classic and unique. This fun baseball style shirt is one of our favorites. Available in three colors; white with blue sleeves, white with black sleeves or white with pink sleeves, it works on any child. Made from 100% cotton and easy to care for. You can also order this design in short and long sleeved lap tees, capsleeves, short and long sleeve tees and tank tops. Too cute!
Before you take your whale infatuation too far and move out to sea like Melville did for years, why not satisfy your whale interest with this beautiful daybed. Perfect for older children or an additional bed in your nautical theme nursery, Seabrook Classics give you the opportunity to furnish your little one’s place with this cute and appealing Whale Daybed. Fine edge-cuttings and vibrant color finishing. Designed to prevent little ones from falling due to its tall headboard and foot board made of high-quality wood.
And last, but not least, with Christmas coming, Babybox.com can’t resist showing off our whale Christmas ornaments for the whale-lovers among us. This charming Christmas ornament features a hand painted whale on a white picture frame. Hang the ornament on the tree and share your favorite photo with friends and family. To make it extra special personalize the ornament with your names, the year or a couples monogram to make it truly one of a kind. Enjoy on your own tree or give as a gift!

“Children often make the bed switch between 18 months and 3 years”, says Jodi Mindell, PhD, associate director of the Sleep Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. What often signals the timing: Your baby is simply outgrowing his crib. Or you’re motivated by another baby on the way. Then there’s the little adventurer who can’t wait to climb out of his crib—and plop onto his head.
“Some parents have their toddlers make the change by age two without any problems,” says Dr. Mindell. But many little ones have difficulties, she adds, like continually getting out of bed when they shouldn’t or frequently crying out for Mommy. “That’s why I strongly suggest switching beds closer to age three, when a child can cognitively understand the boundaries of staying in bed.”
Still, Dr. Mindell, adds, “some children are ready younger.” Yours may be a calm sleeper overall, precocious in his understanding of stay-in-bed rules or simply tall for his age. And if your child’s already potty trained and needs to get in and out of bed, it’s probably time to transition out of his crib. Since many toddlers don’t handle change well, talk about it first and involve your child in shopping for his new bed and sheets—whether you opt for a toddler bed with built-in rails or a twin bed with an attached guardrail at first for safety.
Selecting a children’s bed can be both fun and hard work. Finding just the right style and design can be a large task for some parents. We offer a full collection of kids beds and there is something for every taste. The beds are available in a wide range of styles from canopys to daybeds and come in twin, full, queen and king sizes. Our beds are versatile and can grow with your child. Coordinating dressers, desks, armoires and other pieces are available to match each bed shown below. This elegant furniture will make any room special.
