GapKids’ newest clothes collection: When activewear meets the Avengers.

Kids’ activewear is kind of a funny phrase, if you think about it, since kids are such constant blurs of motion — it’s like every piece of clothing turns into activewear, purposefully or not. Which is what makes the new GapKids and Marvel collection even more super — the adorably Avengered clothes are designed with kids’ movement in mind, which makes it all the easier to unleash their inner superhero. Related: The Gap’s Star Wars kids’ collection is everything we ever dreamed it could be. The “Fit to Be Super” GapKids and Marvel collection debuts on May 30 in stores and online with some seriously...

Gap just launched a Star Wars 40th anniversary collection and we are here for it!

Like, design snob seal of approval awesome. Related:5 of the hottest Star Wars toys your kids totally want. Trust us.

New from babyGap + Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation: a sweet collection with a big mission

It’s summertime, and lemons are everywhere. I’m making pie. Beyoncé’s making music. And now babyGap is partnering with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), an organization dedicated to curing childhood cancer, with an exclusive collection of baby and toddler summer essentials. ALSF was named after Alexandra Scott, who lost her battle with cancer in 2004 at the age of 8. The foundation, which has evolved into a nationwide non-profit, sprung from a front yard lemonade stand and her mission to raise money to find a cure for all children with cancer, like herself.

Diane von Furstenberg for GapKids launches today, and we swoon

I love having two yummy little boys, really I do. But it’s times like this–when I hear that design icon Diane von Furstenberg is creating a girls-only collection for GapKids and babyGap–that I get a little envious of moms with daughters.

A tooth fairy keepsake to help you fill in the gaps

The tooth fairy made another visit here this weekend, and while we’ve been pretty satisfied with her—she’s only been late twice with three kids—I’m not so happy with how lackadaisical I’ve been about keeping track of the moments that represent the transformation from toddler to big kid. Want to remember those tooth-fairy days with a special keepsake that your kids will probably hang onto a lot longer than the quarters under their pillow? I’ve found that very thing. {keep reading for the chance to win!} Handmade artist Kata Golda’s Tooth Fairy Keepsake: Under the Pillow Pocket and Memory Book is a...

Stella McCartney is back for Gap Kids and Baby

Considering how much we drooled over the new Stella McCartney for Gap kids and baby collection, we were awaiting her new spring line with much anticipation. Well, it launched today and once again, we’re smitten. The line itself sings of nostalgia from when many of us mamas were kids, which is particularly strong in the girl’s collection. The gorgeous vintage-inspired fabrics all have little modern twists, and remind me of blouses and dresses I used to wear. Like the sweet crochet dress. Or the ruffle tops. And even though Gap Kids is generally a hoochie-free zone anyway, it’s still...

L-Bow Mittens mind the gap

If I’m going to go through the trouble of suiting up three kids to play in the snow, they had better stay out there for longer than it took me to get them dressed. But an armful of snow lodged in the wrist is a total bummer, so back before my oldest could make a decent snowball, I bought her a pair of L-Bow Mittens to help keep her arms dry, her fingers warm, and all my effort worthwhile. Flash forward almost nine years, and those same L-Bow Mittens are now being sported by my youngest son. L-Bow Mittens...

Stella McCartney for Gap Kids and Baby – we admit it, we’re fans

As it turns out, Target and H+M no longer have a lock on the lower priced clothing from high-end designers thing. We recently got a look at the brand new Stella McCartney for Gap Kids and Baby line, and the verdict is, many enthusiastic thumbs up. Don’t expect any super bargains here, or at least not until the end of the season – a gorgeous cashmere baby blanket will run you $98, and a lovely gray cotton-cashmere blend children’s cardigan with asymmetrical button detailing is $54. Although that’s still less than the $500 you might pay for the Stella...
