Vampire shirts for halloween, hold the cheesy factor

Nope, it’s not Dracula. It’s not Edward, either. This little guy is waaaaay cuter (sorry, Team Edward). This shirt’s vampire is the real deal: a vampire bat. And he’s pretty adorable, for something that sucks blood. We’ve told you before how much we love the authentically depicted creatures on tees and onesies from BioME5, and this dashing fellow is no exception. Seriously, what could be cooler than a Vampire Bat tee, especially around Halloween? This stylin’ bat is anatomically correct, without a googly eye or hair bow to be found. I especially love that the words “Vampire Bat” are printed upside down on...

Can you tell me how to get…a really cool Sesame Street shirt? (Yup.)

CMP has long adored Kiwi Industries for its super soft, US-made organic kids’ clothing–and we’ve always been partial adorable line of Sesame Street characters. So how excited are we to learn they’ve now given Elmo–and our kids!–some new friends to play with? {Keep reading for an exclusive discount for our readers!} Kiwi Industries‘ interpretations of the Sesame Street characters are awesome: they’re vibrant, artsy-abstract yet totally recognizable. Here’s proof: my addicted-to-Cookie-Monster two-year-old went nuts when I showed him the new Cookie Monster sweater (pictured). And then he asked for an actual cookie…but that’s beside the point. Like before, there’s still a lovable...

Cool kids’ clothes ripe for the picking

I’ve always loved early fall for the chance to go apple picking (and the subsequent homemade apple treats!) But long after the apples are gone from the trees, there will be plenty of ways to celebrate apple season with some adorable graphic clothing that’s ripe for the picking. –Christina Apples, apples, everywhere on this Smafolk purple apple-print dress with bright green trim. You’ll be importing these apples from the UK, but this versatile dress will be fashion-fresh for a good long time.  Elizabeth Horton’s nostalgic graphic tee is pure awwww for those of us with growing-up-fast boys. The chocolate-brown...

PAIGELAUREN Baby’s terrific new collection is now for toddlers, too

We fell in love with the lovely baby clothes from PAIGELAUREN Baby years ago–oh, that tailoring! Those stripes! Those polka dots! And now, our mama-fashionista hearts are swelling once again as they get into clothing for the actual walking and talking set. Everything we adored about PAIGELAUREN’s teensy baby-sized outfits is now available in their new collection of toddler clothes including 2T and 4T sizes. And there’s a lot to adore: every piece is made with impossibly soft modal supima cotton, in classic mix-and-match designs that are way too adorable to be called basic. The color palette for everything is earth-inspired,...

The biggest sale ever at one of our favorite shops ever

One of the awesome things about this job is getting to discover so many wonderful small businesses run by the most amazing people. One of the hard parts: hearing that they’re closing shop to move onto new ventures. This is the case with one of our longtime favorite kids’ boutiques, Arte Bebe. But on the upside, they’re offering a huge (huge!) discount just for our readers while they clear out stock. Right now, score 30% off already discounted prices on any fashion, toys, gifts and accessories on the site. Considering a lot of it is already 10-50% off, that’s...

A bib that’s less bib and more boho

Babies drool. My oldest was so good at it that every outfit was always drenched. If your pint-sized, drooly hipster needs something a bit cooler and less traditional than a regular bib the Bobobib might be your speed. Bobobib looks like a perfectly tied bandanna, but nifty velcro does all of the work for you in back. And unlike a bandana, Bobobib is truly absorbent and practical to boot and all made in the USA. The organic cotton fabric is super soft, and the 20+ patterns are all really funky and fun. I am partial to Her Cruisers, the...

ThredUp reinvents itself and now buying discount designer kids clothes–or selling them–is a joy

You know how it goes: your kids wear their clothes for a ridiculously short period of time. Sure, there’s always hand-me-downs, or consignment and Craigslist, if you’re motivated enough to try to make some money. But those routes require time and energy that many of us are sorely lacking at this time of year. So we’re happy to discover that thredUP has newly relaunched, as a very easy, very good-looking online consignment shop.

The baby girl gift that warrants an extra-nice thank you note

My favorite baby girl outfits were ones that could be worn for a fun little playdate or a special day out with just a simple change of shoes. And that’s exactly why I love this adorable tunic and leggings combo from Cool Mom Picks fave Bean New York. [don’t miss a limited time discount for CMP readers after the jump NOW EXTENDED] Maybe because it reminds me of what I brought all my kids home in; but this simple, beautiful, pebble knitted swing baby tunic and leggings outfit is the perfect addition to any little one’s fall wardrobe and a...

Coming soon to a galaxy far, far away: awesome Star Wars shirts

This boutique line of hand-embroidered shirts brings together three of our favorite things: Star Wars, babies, and sock legs. Also, Wookiees. The new Morfs line from welovefine includes five Star Wars shirts for infants and toddlers that meld retro-esque fabrics with hand embroidery for a unique look. We know your kid is too young to decide between the Empire and the Rebels. But we also know that any kid would look adorable wearing a Chewie this fuzzy. Okay, so maybe you like some power. Maybe your baby snores. Maybe he finds your lack of binkies disturbing. There’s always Darth...

Baby gift sets from the land of driving on the wrong side of the road

While we’re all still on this post-Olympic London kick (man, aren’t you dying to go right now?) it was great timing that we discovered this brand new children’s line straight out of London. [don’t miss a fantastic limited time discount for CMP readers after the jump!] Designed by new mum and former architect Jen Taylor, Hokolo (an amalgam of Hong Kong and London) has just introduced its very first line showcasing adorable baby clothes and toys based on the Crown Jewels. These are super special baby gifts,  especially if you’ve got friends in Britain. Although certainly we ‘Merikins will...

Stylish clothes for kids, no shopping required

We’re happy to introduce you to our new sponsor, Wittlebee. We think you’ll like them! The hard thing about buying nice kids’ clothes is facing the inevitable: the clothes will be outgrown. Quickly. What that means is yet another trip to the store, spending more time scouring the web for sales, and dropping even more cash to basically redo your kids’ wardrobe. Again. That’s why WittleBee is genius: it’s a subscription clothing club where stylish kids’ clothes come to you. All you do is sign up for the service, have a phone chat with a stylist about your clothing preferences, and...

PunyPixel – small clothes, big ideas

I’ve just found a new brand that has everything I love…eye popping designs, a charity component, and organic cotton. The only drawback: it’s only for kids. The designs at PunyPixel are admittedly quirky, but I think they’re cool. The line features four culturally diverse characters, like Mike, above. Each one has his or her own unique look and style. If you’re feeling spacey, I would go with Leo. If you’re feeling like all of your chakras are in alignment, Sid is your girl. PunyPixel supports charities that they have a real connection with, and they rotate every couple of...

The full body baby bib, for full contact baby feeding

There were moments in my children’s earlier years that all I wanted to do was cover them in a full body raincoat.  It seemed like meal times turned into “let’s get as covered with food as we possibly can” times.  Thankfully, a brilliant mother out there has created a great solution with a full-sleeved, laminated baby bib from Baby Graybee. These bibs for babies 6-18 months keep even the most spirited eaters clean at meal time. The front of the bib is made of BPA-free laminated cotton, providing waterproof coverage for spills. The sleeves are a comfy soft jersey...

City Threads goes baby

City Threads is a great little clothing company that I’ve raved about before. You can recognize their “Brooklyn” bucket hats on many a hipster kid at the nearest playground in my (nowhere near Brooklyn) neighborhood. Now they are finally veering into the baby clothing world and all I can say is… what took you so long? The baby onesies are made of the same comfy, durable cotton I love on their big kid stuff. The patterns are simple but fun, for babies who don’t need a lot of work to convince the world that they’re cute. Plus, they are...
