The most wonderful place in the world becomes even more wonderful during the fall and winter months. Transitioning from Halloween décor to a Christmas theme, no one does the holidays better than Mickey Mouse, himself! During the spooky Halloween celebration, Disneyland revamps their popular rides and attractions with a special holiday twist. There is endless fun for the little ones, including the Main Street Pumpkin Festival, Trick-or-Treating, a Dia de Los Muertos celebration, Halloween fireworks, and even costumed characters! Once the clock strikes midnight on Halloween, Disneyland is transformed into an idyllic winter wonderland! Frosted lights grace the Sleeping Beauty Castle, It’s a Small World shines brightly in festive colors, and everywhere you look there is a stunning display of holiday spirit! The best part of it all is the Holiday Magic! Fireworks and the Christmas Fantasy Parade—nothing compares to this Christmas celebration.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
Orlando, CA

Any Harry Potter fans out there? Of course there are! If you have yet to plan a visit to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, there is no better time than the present. Have a magical and unforgettable experience visiting the Hogwarts castle, exploring Hogsmeade village, and finally entering Diagon Alley. What makes this place extra special during the fall season is the iconic Butterbeer (non-alcoholic!) and Pumpkin Juice, made famous by the J.K. Rowling series. While the World of Harry Potter is filled with much adventure, more fun awaits at both Universal Orlando Resorts. With many more rides and attractions for the whole family to enjoy at Universal Orlando, you’ll make memories that’ll last a lifetime.

Guide for Halloween Trick-or-Treat Safety

For many children, Halloween is their favorite night of the year! This is the day they can dress up as whatever they want to—a superhero, a rock star, an astronaut, or anything else they dream of! Between the costumes, spooky decorations, and all of the candy, there is a great deal to be excited about on Halloween day. To ensure a night filled with safe family fun, follow these helpful and important trick-or-treating Halloween safety tips.

Have a Plan

The best thing you can do for a memorable night of Halloween trick-or-treating is planning ahead. Map out which neighborhoods and streets your family wants to visit, as well as what time you want to head out, and when you want to return back home. By having a planned route, preferably in an area your child is familiar with, he or she is less likely to feel afraid or get lost. Many times, certain regions will host family friendly neighborhood events, featuring music, elaborate décor, and lots of yummy festive treats. Community newsletters and online neighborhood networks, such as NextDoor, will provide information specific to your local area.

Appropriate Costumes

Consider wearing costumes that require no masks, or costumes where the mask can be substituted with face paint. Masks make it difficult for children to see or breathe. In addition, masks may create a challenge for parents trying to keep an eye on or find their child in a crowded space. Costumes with props, such as swords or arrows, become burdensome to carry throughout the entire night. If too sharp, such accessories can also cause injury to your child or other trick-or-treaters.

Proper Footwear

Halloween involves a great deal of walking for you and your family, so prepare accordingly. Wear comfortable, casual footwear that you can walk in for several hours. The same goes for all the members of your family, big and small. If your comfortable shoes clash with your Halloween costume, pack a light pair of shoes in your bag or car for later. As it gets darker, it is easier to trip over costumes and on uneven sidewalks. You’ll be so grateful you brought extra shoes then!

Bring Lighting

Naturally, it will be dark Halloween evening, so you will need to bring some form of lighting. Consider applying reflector tape or wearing a reflector vest/jacket. Alternatively, your family may carry around a flashlight, glow sticks, or use the flashlight from your smartphone. One fun idea is getting headlamps for the whole family—this way you can see where you walk and have free hands for getting more candy!

We hope you have an enjoyable and memorable Halloween with your family! Happy Halloween from all of us here at iBaby Labs!

iBaby Monitor M6S Review by CNET

iBaby Monitor M6S received an overall 7.5-star rating for design, features, usability and performance on a review done by CNET. iBaby Monitor M6S was compared to 5 other baby monitors, and we are happy to say that the most positive comments were directed at our own iBaby Monitor M6S.
iBaby Monitor M6S Rating
CNET classified iBaby Monitor M6S as one of the best higher–end products of its type. “iBaby is probably the most notable startup in the video baby monitor market. Its premiere product, the $230 iBaby Monitor M6S, is just a camera — foregoing the standalone monitor for a well-designed app. At a consistent 1080p, the M6S’s video and connection quality is some of the best on the market. Plus, the device includes small but thoughtful additions to its feature list, like recorded stories and lullabies.” – CNET Review.
CNET Review Pros:

  • iBaby Monitor M6S streams reliably even when you are away from home, and also remains responsive to pan/tilt control.
  • iBaby Monitor M6S app works a lot better than competition

CNET Review Cons:

  • App responsive to lowest sensitivity settings

Things to Look for in a Wireless Baby Video Monitor

Sleep deprivation is considered to be a common case for newborn parents. The ability to visually check on your little one with the use of a video baby monitor is definitely of great edge, and therefore providing relief from anxiety in most cases.

To get the best out of a video baby monitor you will need to consider three things:

  1. Coverage:

One thing to consider while shopping for a video baby monitor is how much view coverage it provides. You will need something you are able to move remotely to get the best results.

  1. Clarity:

Another thing you should consider is clarity. What is the purpose of getting a video baby monitor that will not provide crisp video resolution? You need a monitor that will show your beautiful little one in the sharpest view. The current highest video resolution available in the market is 1080p HD.

  1. Sound quality:

Finally, if you have a video feed from your monitor, it does not complete the package if the monitor does not have high-quality speakers and microphone. You should be able to hear your baby and talk back to her.

We suggest our iBaby Monitor M6S. It offers all the above features and much more, like humidity, temperature, and air quality sensors.

Three Features Of iBaby Monitor M6S You Will Love

Our very new iBaby Monitor M6S just launched on our website last week for pre-order. Learn about three new features it offers, and how they may benefit you.

Three New Features of iBaby Monitor M6S

Our newest baby monitor iBaby Monitor M6S boasts three new features as compared to the previous models of iBaby baby monitors.

1080p video

The first feature is 1080p HD video resolution. This is the highest video resolution currently available in the baby monitoring industry. It means that you will be able to see your baby in the sharpest detail possible! Combine this with night vision and 360° view, and you know you will be able to see everything in your baby’s room at all times.

2.4 GHz / 5 GHz

The second feature is dual band router support. iBaby is one of the few manufacturers that will now support both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies. You no longer need to worry about your router compatibility. This also means faster speeds, less interference from other devices and fewer disconnects.

Air quality sensor

And finally, one more new feature – iBaby Monitor M6S has an air quality sensor. You will now be able to see the air quality, as well as temperature and humidity in the room where the monitor is. Moreover, the monitor will also give you suggestions and tips to improve your lifestyle!
