Once upon a time…
there was a woman with a dream. She liked to shop for gifts for friends, family and co-workers, but found that finding the time and the right product was a challenge. So she decided to make it easier for others by simplifying the process. And in 1996 Babybox.com was born.
Now this woman wasn’t content to just sell a bib here or a mass-produced toy there. Oh no, she wanted to sell only the highest quality baby products that she could find. She also wanted the process to be easy, as she knew how precious time could be. Who has the time to shop umpteen numbers of stores to find the right product that you desire? Some do, but enough other people struggle with time management during the day and just want to go home to relax at the end of it. Hence online shopping was key to Babybox.com‘s mission. Shopping from your own home simplifies any shopping experience, especially when helpful customer service representatives are just a quick phone call away to help you with your shopping needs.
Sometimes the magic of a gift is in the packaging of it though. Who doesn’t recall the excitement of staring at an unopened present, wondering what could possibly be inside? What would Christmas and birthdays be like without that thrill? That’s why Babybox.com also makes the effort to present all of our orders in beautiful packaging. Sometimes the surprise is just as important as the gift itself and we know that.
Ultimately, the vision was all about babies though. They are a wonderful addition to any family and Babybox.com celebrates that. We offer personalized gifts, custom-made furniture, unique on-of-a-kind items, and products that are just plain perfect for kids. Because not only did Katherine Styne Type want all of this for her customers, but she has a family of her own that deserve only the best as well. So if you are wondering where to find a great baby gift, try Babybox.com. Katherine had a vision 17 years ago, and it has only grown bigger through the years.
See why she stands out in the e-commerce marketplace today!

On June 19, 1846 in Hobocken, New Jersey the first official game of (knickerbocker) baseball was played. There had been other versions of our national pastime played in the US since the 1830s, and earlier games of a similar nature played in England in the 1700s, but that inaugural game on June 19th between the New York Knickerbockers and the New York Nine began a love affair that continues to this day. America’s national sport has evolved since that day, but it is still grips the hearts of fans all over the continent every season. And for that reason, Babybox.com salutes baseball today.

On June 7th, James Young Simpson (Obstetrician [used chloroform], b. 1811), Virginia Apgar (American physician & childbirth specialist, b. 1909), Virginia McKenna (Actress [Born Free], b. 1931), Johnny Clegg (South African Musician [Album 'Third World Child'], b. 19530), and Louise Erdrich (Author [Love Medicine], b. 1954) were born. They are all great people and have contributed much to the world. Do you see the link between them (think babies)?

personalized luggage tags – wedding rings
They share their birthdays with another very special date in American history. On June 7th, 1965 the Supreme Court of the United States decided that the law against contraceptives was unconstitutional. The Griswold vs Connecticut case led the way to the legalization for married couples to access birth control. As of 1965, contraception was legal and became a matter of choice for consenting “married” adults (oral contraceptives had been approved by the FDA in 1960).

As much as Babybox.com loves pregnancy and babies, we can certainly appreciate what that ruling has meant for future generations. Children are a blessing and a joy when sought by a loving couple. We all know that sometimes timing can be key to being able to provide for children though. Having the opportunity to choose when to conceive, or not, just makes the process that much easier for all involved. While there have been many blessings in disguise from “oops” babies, taking the time to ensure that you are able to offer your all means a lot too. Whether it is waiting to have a baby until after you finish school, or once you have established a career, these choices can be wise ones to make, financially, emotionally and even socially. Even having the option to decide the number of children to bear can potentially benefit everyone in your family. Birth control has certainly shown its benefits over the years.

Whether you choose to have babies when you are younger, older, alone, or with a partner, it is an important decision to make. Children are a huge responsibility that deserve a little forethought before being brought into the world. Once they are here you must feed, clothe, nurture, educate , love and cherish them for years to come. In fact, hopefully that love just continues to grow as your children do. Whether they turn out to be painters (Paul Gauguin [Post-Impressionist], b. 1848), actors (Liam Neeson, b. 1952), musicians (Prince, b. 1958), tennis players (Anna Kournikova, b. 1981) or just your very own special kids, they are treasures that have been bestowed upon you. Treat those gifts with care.
No man should bring children into the world who is unwilling to persevere to the end in their nature and education. ~ Plato

french changing table (nursery rhyme)
There was an old lady
who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children
she didn’t know what to do…
Regardless of how many children you have, there will be space for them all on this Art For Kids french changer in nursery rhyme motif. That is if you change them one at a time…
nursery rhyme motif table set
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again!
If you had set poor Humpty up at the nursery rhyme motf table set he would have had a much better time of it, I’m sure. It comes with two chairs, so there is only space for one of the kings to sit with Humpty, but I’m sure they could figure it out…
hand colored nursery rhyme – simple simon wall art by green frog art
Simple Simon met a pieman,
Going to the fair.
Said Simple Simon to the pieman,
“Let me taste your ware.”
Said the pieman unto Simon,
“Show me first your penny.”
Said Simple Simon to the pieman,
“Indeed I have not any.”
A shame indeed to not have a penny when in need, but the morals unfold as Simple Simon’s story unfolds. You can share them with your child on this hand colored nursery rhyme – Simple Simonw by Green Frog Art.
personalized nursery themed birth tile
Hey, diddle, diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed
To see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.
That’s quite the game to play, but the personalized nursery themed birth tile captures it all nicely, don’t you think?
Or enjoy all kinds of nursery rhymes with the delightful images on the french full door armoire (nursery rhymes). Don’t forget to read to your children. It is the best gift you can ever give to them!

It’s Good Friday; the start of the Easter weekend holidays for people of the Christian faith. The celebration is a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus Chris made. He was arrested, tried and hung on a cross to die by the Romans of the day. Christians believe that he died for their sins, so that they may be given a new life. He is seen as the Son of God and the proof of that is in his resurrection three days later on Easter Sunday. It concludes the forty day fast of Lent, incorporates Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and of course Easter Sunday. Many attend church to listen to the Gospels, get baptized (newly converted), and receive the Eucharist (High Communion). Nowadays, a newer custom of collecting Easter eggs left out by the Easter Bunny has children looking forward to the holidays with glee. Regardless of how you celebrate, this weekend is a special one, and Babybox.com is excited too.
