I was just telling Lee that I wished a baby registry like this one existed. Ohdeedoh featured this great new service yesterday.
BabyLi.st was launched last month by a first-time mom. It allows users to move items into their registry from any online store. I love the flexibility it provides and it is really easy to use as well. All I had to do was sign up and install a browser. When I am shopping and find something I want to add to my registry, I just click on my Favorites button, click on the "Baby Morgan" folder I recently created to house everything baby, and then click on "add to babylist". A small pop-up window appears that shows how my item will look in the registry. A picture of the item, the price, and a link are automatically transferred to my registry. I am able to change the quantity and there is even a space for notes. So easy.
I love that I will not have to be a slave to Babie R Us, Target, etc... My gift-buyers will also not be as limited. For example, I plan on putting several books for baby into my registry. If someone visits my registry and decides they want to buy Goodnight Moon, they just click on the "Reserve" button. They then are free to buy that book from wherever they wish. Amazing flexibility for everyone. I do plan on trying to find as many basic items from the more ubiquitous stores to make it easy for my friends and family.
