It used to be that celebrities went and made their own line of exercise tapes (yes, tapes), or salad dressings or bad handbags. I’m so glad to see that now some of them are getting into the children’s apparel business, with some decent results. In fact, two new lines just launched at Target today at such great prices, parents are going to be thrilled.
[don't miss the giveaway after the jump!]
First off, Baby Buggy, Jessica Seinfeld’s
excellent NY based charity supporting families in need, has teamed up
with Target to create a small Baby Buggy for Target line of baby clothes featuring different designers.
The designs in the boy’s collection are particularly
adorable (love the stripes!) featuring illustrations from
Maira Kalman. The quality is decent for mass-produced
clothes, and the prices are unreal – $3.99 for a bodysuit or a two-pack
of cute cotton baby caps.The standout of the line however may be the absolutely adorable pair of cute diaper bags designed by mom favorite Petunia
Picklebottom (right) for just $49.99.
But the best part: 10% of the
purchase price on all these items goes right back to the Baby Buggy charity, up to a half-million dollar donation. Sweet.
For a few dollars more you can also score organic layette
basics by The Little Seed for Target. The brainchild of Soleil Moon
Frye and Page Goldberg Tolmach, the line features solid basics
for those babies who have sworn off pastels. A bright, bold orange cap and
booties set can be had for just $8.99 (at right), or a vibrant hooded towel for
I haven’t seen them in person myself yet, but they look like decent basics, if not inspiring in their styling. However at these prices, if they’re as soft and cozy as the descriptions, I’d imagine a lot of new moms
will be wrapping their wet babies in fuchsia this summer.
Just grab some now, if you’re expecting. Both Baby Buggy and The Little Seed for
Target are limited time lines, and by next year they may only be
available on eBay. Or in your sister’s hand-me-down pile. -Liz
