Hello Kitty BabyLegs. Prepare to squee in Japanese.

If you don’t yet know how awesome BabyLegs are, we’re happy to remind you every few months or so. They not only respect the accessibility of the onesie and keep little legs warm in heavily air conditioned places, but diaper changes are a breeze. Now we’ve got one more reason to love them: The all new Hello Kitty collection. The Hello Kitty BabyLegs are not only cute and sweet, but practical, too. Any of the seven styles will funky up any outfit, but without interfering with the business at hand. You know, the free wheeling crawling kind. Plus she...

Gorgeous designer kids clothes on crazy sale. (Don’t you love June?)

If your daughter needs a new party dress this summer, or you’re just one of those smart moms who remembers to stock up on sale clothing for next year, one of my favorite labels, Ses Petites Mains, is having their annual sidewalk sale right now. And it’s awesome. Gorgeous handmade dresses for girls that are normally in the splurge-y category of childrenswear are now super affordable. I loved this petal slip dress before, but I think I love it even more for $24. That’s 2/3 off. Same goes for the amaryllis dress we featured earlier this year, now down...

Paperflavor – delicious!

What’s that delightful flavor? I mean, I know it’s paper. But there are essences of ballerina, candy, fruit, robot, and… do I detect the delightful aroma of ninja? It must be Paperflavor, the brand new site offering a truly creative range of invitations, stationery, and other beautiful paper goods that are just my cup of (flavored) tea. The stationery sets are unusually adorable–a great choice for a tween girl who likes that cute animé illustration style. And there’s a nice selection of baby shower invitations and photo baby announcements that are bright, colorful and modern. It’s a refreshing change...

Help us raise $10,000 for Baby Buggy with a single click

This post is sponsored by Yahoo! Every time you click here to make Yahoo! your homepage, you’re showing your support for our charity. Recently, our sponsor Yahoo! came up with a cool idea: Ask our readers to make Yahoo! your homepage this week, and for every change, they’d make a $1 donation to our favorite charity for us up to $10,000. We were like, heck yeah. The Yahoo! home page is so fun anyway. (Who isn’t addicted to their trending topics category? And the customized content? It’s like they know we’re addicted to Real Housewives.) Because we especially love...

Vespa, baby!

Sometimes I picture myself like in a movie scene, on the back of a shiny turquoise scooter (yes, in my fantasy it’s turquoise, okay?), silk scarf in my hair, cruising around Europe without a care in the world. That’s not likely to happen any time soon, but I do love these bags that can add a little of that mod-hipster-cool attitude to your daily grind. The vintage styled Vespa travel bags are sturdy and mildly childproof, with just enough bells and whistles to be practical–zipper pockets, mesh compartments and an adjustable shoulder strap. It’s such a fun, casual bag...

Be the talk of the neighborhood with 3 cool new ride-on toys

Our garage is filled with bikes, trikes, scooters and even one Skoooch, but I’m a big believer in “you can never have too many outdoor toys.” So, I’m always on the lookout for cool new ride-on, kid-powered things that can hold their attention for at least as long as the latest Wii game. For some of my favorite “tried and true” ride-on toys, check out our Scooter Smackdown and Second Scooter Smackdown from past years. But if you’re looking to get something that no one else on your block has yet, keep reading.  For toddlers, I’m not sure I’ve seen...

Hats that your kiddos will actually want to keep on

When my kids were little, they threw their hats off the moment I put them on. I didn’t force the issue but I longed for the day that they would come to love and appreciate the hat not just for its utilitarian purpose, but as a fabulous fashion accessory. Dear readers, that time is now. Don’t get me wrong, we love our sports teams as much as the next–it’s just that I love choices that allow a kid to express their individuality, which is why Goorin Bros. is my dream come true. Their gorgeous hats come in fabulous mini...

Dr. Hauschka skin care – believe the hype.

Even as an avowed skincare fanatic, I had never sampled the Dr. Hauschka products I’d heard so much about. This line is known for being holistic, ecologically sound, and focused on the body’s rhythms and internal processes. Which is great and all, but oh my gawd, the results. Count me in as the newest Dr. Hauschka fan, a line now available at CMP fave Hazel Wood Children, which means you have a great excuse to grab some luxury skincare for yourself, right  between the skull socks and the tiny purple tank top. The Blackthorn Body Oil smells like a...
