CSN Stores - Peg Perego Prima Pappa Best High Chair Review


What does CSN Stores have in store for you this time?  I am always delighted to review products from the millions of brand name products that CSN Stores offer from their 200+ online stores!  At CSN Stores, you may find products for the entire household from baby products to room furnishings -,,, and much more.  It's like a one stop online mall.

Before Baby Hsu takes his first bite of solids, I gave him a test drive in his first high chair - Peg Perego Prima Pappa Best High Chair (Cacao).  As you can tell from the photo, he was a bit nervous and held onto the high chair with both hands.  This upscale high chair is tailored with a soft, leather-like "Prima Classe" upholstery that is stain resistant.  It is adjustable with seven height positions, a unique "Tilt-in-Space" feature (with four reclining positions), three footrest positions, a five-point safety harness and passive restraint system.  The dual tray includes a removable dishwasher safe second tray and both of the trays may be stored on the chair legs.  In addition, there's a storage net on the back of the seat.  The high chair comes fully assembled with non-scratching rubber wheels and brakes.

Life is good - Baby Hsu lounging in his comfortable Peg Perego Prima Pappa Best High Chair while being fed (HSUper Parents-Approved)!  

BUY IT!  The Peg Perego Prima Pappa Best High Chair (Cacao) may be purchased for $229.99 (free shipping) at CSN Stores.  It is also available in another color - Paloma (Rich Cream).

Graco's Secure Coverage Digital Monitor Review

Graco, a trusted brand that is well known worldwide, is one of the leaders in baby products.  It all started from the birth of the Swyngomatic, the world's first wind-up infant swing.  Graco has now grown to include other innovative juvenile products - car seats, strollers, travel systems, playards, swings and soothers, highchairs, activity centers, monitors, and nursery and care.  Graco prides itself on product safety, quality, reliability, and convenience and has won many awards for their outstanding products. 

- Secure digital technology provides optimal clarity, performance and privacy
- Sounds lights and exclusive vibration alert
- 2000 ft. range for complete household coverage
- 900 MHZ frequency with no interference from phones and electronics
- Low battery alarm
- Belt clip allows for wear-it-anywhere convenience
- Battery back up in child unit
- Includes 1 child unit, 2 parent units, 3 AC adapters, 1 instruction booklet

Graco's Secure Coverage Digital Monitor is a nice and simple baby monitor.  I appreciate how the parent units light up when the child unit detects a noise.  That way, I don't have to constantly press the monitor against my ears to check if there is a slightest sound coming from Baby Hsu.  There is also a vibration alert that may be turned on or off to detect noise.  I think this option is great when you're having a party or when you're in a place that's quite rowdy.  I like how it is a compact size so that I may take it on the go when I bring Baby Hsu to grandparent's or a friend's house.  When I first paired the parent units to the child unit, I noticed static.  But, after changing a few channels, the static was less obvious.  The monitor picks up every single noise in the room and even noise that may be heard from within the room.  I had placed the child unit in my in-law's guest room where Baby Hsu was sleeping, and the unit picked up noise that was coming from the adjacent room where the adults were loudly play mahjong.  An added convenience is the belt clip that is attached to the parent unit, which I can clip to my pants and roam around the house.     

When I put Baby Hsu to sleep in his crib, I feel at ease with Graco's Secure Coverage Digital Monitor so that I may be aware of any slightest whimpers that Baby Hsu makes (HSUper Parents-Approved)!

For news and updates on Graco's products, you may follow them @GracoBaby on Twitter, Graco and I Love My Baby Bump on Facebook.

BUY IT!  Graco's Secure Coverage Digital Monitor with 2 Parent Units may be purchased for $64.99 (also available with one parent unit for $44.99) online or in store at Walmart.

Office Furniture From CSN Stores

I've always wondered where companies purchase their office furniture.  I especially love the ones with a modern flair.  When I used to go on interviews, the company's office furniture was one of the determining factor in accepting the job.  I prefer my workplace to be comfortable and soothing to the eye.  If I'm going to be stuck in a work area (my desk) for eight hours a day, I would appreciate sitting in a comfortable chair and a spacious desk.  At home, we actually purchased a large rectangle dining table to be used as a desk in our den.  In the future, Baby Hsu can work on his homework on the table while I'm busy typing away or browsing the Internet.  As for our office chair, it took us a while to find a comfortable chair and we found a nice leather executive chair.   

At, one of 200+ online CSN Stores, you may find a variety of office furniture that suits your workspace - desks, seating, filing and storage, office collections, tables, office accessories and decor, office supplies, presentation tools, home office furniture, and reception furniture.  The SAYL Collection From Herman Miller (chair pictured above in the center) is something I would love for our home office.  It really goes well with an Apple iMac (for all you Apple fans out there).
