Bicycle basics: Maybe it's the wide seats, a more comfy accommodation for the derriere or the wider tires and upright handlebars. Or maybe it's just fallout from the rush to retro. But bikes like the Beaver's are hot, whether they are the refurbished Momochari pedalers at momovelo.com (bottom left) - single speeds with steel frames from Japan and Taiwan at $80-$100, plus shipping - or new throwbacks with smoothly shifting gears, spring-loaded saddles from Electra Bicycles (top left, about $300 and up, available at Montgomery Cyclery and West Chester Cyclery).
Pack-a-pillow: An all-in-one easy-to-tote blanket and pillow set, a requirement for the day care set, was the brainchild of frustrated mom and Hoosier native Jennifer Bohnsack. Marketed under the Cozy Combos label at stores including Wal-Mart, the washable pint-size pillows unfold to a comfy 36-by-45-inch blanket that tucks back in to carry away. In styles for boys and girls, from footballs to ladybugs and a new My Little Pony (at ToysRUs.com). About $18. Information: (877) 752-4376.
