Another special for water-less parents

If you are a cloth diapering mama or papa you are definitely feeling the water rationing effects very badly this month.

We may have a little relief for you with the GroVia Hybrid Biosoakers. Buy 2 this month and get 20% off. This will hopefully tide you over in those spots where clean cloth diapers are hard to come by until the rationing exercise ends on 31st March.

biosoaker sale - 4.14_160

Biosoakers are disposable inserts suitable for use with any PUL cloth diaper cover (GroVia shells, Thirsties covers, Flip covers etc) – just don’t use the sticky tab if you are using a diaper cover with exposed PUL inners (it will be harder to remove the sticky).

Biosoakers are fragrance, dye, chlorine and plastic free with an ultra thin construction. They are made of 100% super soft Ingeo on-woven fibers which are renewable resource free of synthetic chemicals and preservatives. They are compostable!  They also contain a minimal amount of SAP (a super absorbent polymer which absorbs a lot of liquid but also can absorb too much drying out your baby’s skin. It also releases that unique “disposable diaper smell”  - a gas which is thought to contribute to childhood asthma).

Why choose a biosoaker instead of a full disposable diaper (even if it’s a compostable disposable diaper) ? Here’s why:

Well there’s no water. So we put this one on sale….

It’s not a very pleasant time to be in Malaysia right now, what with the water restrictions & the terrible haze.

We can’t do much to ease the pain, but we are putting the Wrapsody Duo Water Wraps on sale.

If you don’t have one yet and you have a young infant or a baby, this can be a lifesaver – you can save water by showering with your baby. ;-)

Or you can take a beach holiday on the East Coast and bring this wrap along to splish splash. Doesn’t this look nice?

One of the best things – the wrap provides SPF-15 protection!

Kiwi Pie Chickadee – 50% off!

Here’s a video featuring the older style Kiwi Pie we’re clearancing :

Coming up on Christmas…

.. why not check out some gorgeously smelly Dirt Candles for the festive season?

We only have a few of these left. Why do we love them?

1. They smell great (no harsh synthetic smells here)

2. The melted soy makes a lovely scented moisturizer (seriously, the scent lasts a long time when used as a moisturizer)

3. Less soot than traditional beeswax or palm candles

Disposable Plastic is not the way to go

Let’s work together to reduce our disposable plastic usage!

Tiny Tapir offers easy replacements for Plastic Straws, Plastic Bags, Reusable Breastmilk storage containers, throwaway cups, Plastic bottles , flimsy fruit and vegetable grocery bags

It’s just a little shift in the way we think about living – no, it is unlikely that we will ever go back to being 100% plastic free, but we can do our best to reduce our reliance on single use disposable plastics.

Let’s reduce the incidence of this as much as we can (click on the picture to go to the post) :

Kokopax Love

We received some customer love the other day and I just can’t resist sharing (especially since it included some gorgeous photos!).

Although we’re in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, this comes from Janna all the way in the USA who received one of our remaining Kokopax Baby Carriers – hers is the EcoPax Classic Bubbles :

“We love the carrier. This is the first time our daughter isn’t screaming to get out. She hated the close body carriers like ergo. We went on a 50min walk the other day and not a peep!”

In our experience, there are some babes who just will not settle for being held in close confines with a restricted view and some parents who do not want to go on the learning curve for using a wrap in a high back carry, or for whom a high back carry in a wrap is just not convenient. In those cases, the Kokopax definitely comes to the rescue. It’s an “easy on, easy off” kind of carrier, although the addition of the frame does make it bulkier than a simple piece of cloth to be folded up in.

That’s why we stock so many different types of baby carriers (with an eye on ergonomics of course, we have no crotch danglers) – there are a wide range of needs, preferences and considerations for all babywearing parents and babes – the key is finding the perfect solution so any baby can be happily baby-worn by any parent.

Thanks for sharing Janna!

Bumprider – NEW in Asia – Launch & Giveaway

We at Tiny Tapir are proud to be working with Bloop Distribution in the launch of the Bumprider here in Asia.

If you use strollers & have a 2 year old or older child & a new baby on the way, this is one product that will make your life infinitely easier.

What is the Bumprider?

bumprider_colors_black

Well, we’re always looking for “best in class” products (those products that really stand out from the competition) and we believe we’ve found that in the Bumprider.

Sure, there are other ride-along boards in the market, but they are pale versions of the Bumprider.

Does your ride-along board have a motorcross bike suspension system (or does it have crappy plastic swivel joints that jam so you can’t turn smoothly, adding weight to your stroller)?

Is your ride-along board made of a unique blend of materials so that it flexes slightly with movement with a superior antislip surface (or is it made of immovable plastic making it more prone to breakage)?

Can you install your ride-along board in seconds with NO tools & can it be released quickly and attached to your 2nd stroller or pram (or is it a pain to install and once you have it on your stroller, you’re stuck with that stroller always)?

Does your ride-along board fit on 99% of all strollers and prams without the need for adaptors? (check out this sideways action)

Lastly, is your ride along board this good looking?

Bumprider - Available designs - 7.13
