Looking for organic, eco-friendly and natural products for your baby? Sheri Gurock, who founded Magic Beans in 2004 with her husband, Eli, and designed the Welcome Baby! gift baskets with CJP, brings you her top picks. While the Gurocks were expecting their second child, they were struck by the lack of independent toy stores in their neighborhood. An idea was born, and they opened Magic Beans, a store that has been wowing parents and kids year after year with a handpicked selection of baby gear, furniture and toys for all ages. Sheri and Eli are the proud parents of Audrey (7), Mira (5) and Zev (17 months), and live in Brookline.
