Meet The BabyGuyNYC: 25 Fun Facts about Jamie Grayson
Posted on April 16, 2015
We’ve been touring the country with Jamie Grayson, The BabyGuyNYC for three years now. To say we know a lot about him is an understatement. As public as he is, there may be some things that you don’t know about Jamie Grayson. Not only is he THE BEST Baby Gear Expert there is (he can rattle of stats and specs for nearly any car seat or stroller), he is also an amazing guy and a good friend. Straight from his sister, Jennifer Buske, here are 25 (actually 28) Fun Facts about Jamie Grayson:
Jamie learned to read at age three.
Jamie is severely allergic to horses.
Jamie has an extremely loud speaking voice that many will not hear on social media! (He doesn’t use a mic at Gearapalooza!)
Jamie wanted to be an astronaut when he was little.
Jamie has three sisters. The two youngest ones were born when we were in high school! Big age gap!
Jamie was raised most of his life by a single mother.
Jamie used to have bad asthma attacks as a child and I always thought he was just a great actor trying to skip school.

When Jamie burns cookies, he won’t admit it- just encourage you to eat them while they are hot (before they get cold and turn into a rock).
