Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

We are launching our Factory Outlet on Dec 29, 2008 at 10am PST and run thru Jan 11, 2009 at midnight PST.



The site will have a link from our main site so you can visit to link directly to The Bumble Factory Outlet – it has the Bumble Collection diaper bags and children’s accessories that will be from 40% to 70% off – this is quite the opportunity to score an incredible diaper bag and/ or accessories! Product available for sale on this site can range from items that are slightly flawed to items that are a discontinued seasonal favorite.

The site will offer all the celebrity faves and must have discontinued Bumble products. The Bumble Factory Outlet will hold a limited amount of sales throughout the year.

Portions of the proceeds will benefit local children’s charities including Horizons for Homeless.

Our primary purpose of creating The Bumble Outlet was to find an alternative way to reach out to organizations in need. A portion of the proceeds incurred from this site benefit many charities such as Horizons Homeless Children. Horizons provide homeless children in Massachusetts with the nurturing, stimulation and opportunities for early education and play that all children need to learn and grow in healthy ways.

Cell Phone Use Causes Kids to go Haywire. Say What???

Monday, May 19th, 2008

Pregnant women should probably add cellphones to the list of things they need to avoid, along with alcohol, sushi and cat poo. A giant study that surveyed over 13,000 children found that women who used mobile phones when pregnant were more likely to give birth to kids with behavioral problems.

The study, conducted by UCLA and Aarhus University in Denmark, found that using cell phones just two or three times a day would raise the risk of their babies developing hyperactivity and emotional disorders by the time they enter kindergarten.

The scientists responsible for the study say that the results were "unexpected," and that they haven’t discovered what biological mechanisms causes the problems. But the results stayed the same even when they accounted for other possible causes—such as smoking, family psychiatric history or socio-economic status.

But before everyone freaks out and buys a MummyWrap, the scientists stress that the results "should be interpreted with caution" and affirmed by other studies. In the meantime, maybe tell Mommy-to-be to limit her cellphone use a little bit, just in case.
