mobiles at Bla Bla Kids had been around then, I’d have been delighted. Imagine whimsical, meticulously hand-knit animals like an elephant girl riding a whale (shown at left) a daisy-sniffing cow atop a green bird in a Panama hat; or a more traditional mobile featuring an entire circus full of jungle animals, each performing acts of daring on a flying trapeze.Back when I was decorating the nursery, I was not exactly in love with the cookie-cutter mobiles in all of the baby chain stores.

Hi! We’re Kristen + Liz!
We started Cool Mom Picks in 2006 to help make life cooler, easier, more organized, more meaningful, and more fun for parents of all kinds.
Trivia: It was called Cool Mom Sh*t for the first two days. (Yeah, we rethought that.)
We had no idea our site would grow to become a major lifestyle network, that we'd end up sharing our finds with the TODAY Show and Martha Stewart, that we'd be able to make a real difference for so many small businesses and women-run companies, or that we'd end up with an incredible community of the coolest readers on the planet. (If we do say so ourselves).
But we did.
And we still love what we do every single day.
We're so glad you're here.
