Pico Kid jewelry line for girls and boys inspires mini makers

Cool jewelry for both girls and boys that inspires the makers of tomorrow? Found it. Pico Kid, a line of jewelry for girls and boys (or the young at heart), is the latest collection by Pico Design. We’ve featured Andrea Panico’s architectural inspired jewelry collection before when we included it as a Cool Mom Picks Pick of The Year for being one of the Coolest jewelry & accessory brands in 2015. Pico’s latest launch solidifies its spot as a cool brand. Full disclosure: Andrea is my friend and neighbor (Shout out to Montclair!), but it was my love for her jewelry that started our friendship and the rest is history. Andrea was inspired to create...

My youngest child is still learning to tie his shoes. He can get it right about 50% of the time — just enough to be absolutely confident he can do it himself with no help from me thankyouverymuch. As you can imagine, this makes it hard to get out the door on time on school mornings. And his older brother’s teacher isn’t accepting his “my brother can’t tie his shoes” excuse for his tardiness. So, I caved and bought some of those no-tie shoelaces I’ve been seeing advertised all over Facebook — and, honestly, I love them. I’m thrilled to have found...

Well, this week we discovered a tiny clothing company that makes clever backpack vests my youngest kids are going to love, because they have storage pockets built right into the vest. So now, when they want to bring along their stuffed animal, favorite car, and snacks, I can stash it all in their vest. And then I...

We’re fawning over these 9 adorable woodland creature bags for tweens.

We’ve found that the new swimsuits from Fastenswim are a big help for swimmers who are still in diapers or potty training. You know, that stage when a trip to the bathroom needs to happen fast. Fastenswim suits have a band of magnets at the waist with two snaps on either end. These snaps make sure the magnets won’t pull free while you’re swimming — an important detail. When you need...
