The Cascara, due out in September 2010, is a new modern baby bassinet dreamt up by daddy and design engineer, 33 yr old. Shaun Milburn of Babycotpod.
Designed to feature a permanent hood and retractable carrying handle, it also has built-in grab handles for lifting on and off the 'Tang' stand, which is available either in wood or molded plastic.
The retractable handle folds down to fit within the interior:
And when not being carried, the Cascara can be safely placed on the Tang stand.
The interior fabric lining the bassinet will be available in a range of colors and will be completely removable and washable.
According to Babyology, the company will also be introducing a less expensive model named the Cuba, which will will not have the hood or retractable carrying handle, but feature the same cocoon-like looks and style with the built-in grab handles.
