Gap just launched a Star Wars 40th anniversary collection and we are here for it!

While I want to be a little cynical about the brand new GAP collection of Star Wars 40th anniversary clothes and accessories for kids and adults, that just launched today I have to admit here…it’s awesome. Like, design snob seal of approval awesome. Related:5 of the hottest Star Wars toys your kids totally want. Trust us. The Star Wars Princess Leia “force to be reckoned with” tee (clever, right?) at top is my number one top pick for the young female jedis-in-training among us. And I say young because darn, it only comes in girls sizes or I’d totally be all over that...

6 fantastic pairs of kids’ winter boots on sale right now. Hurry!

The good thing about living down South is that I can wait until the last minute to buy snow boots for my kids, when they’re all on sale! And when you’re buying four sets of winter snow gear, those savings help a lot. That said, all of these kids’ winter boots on sale are ones we’d buy even if they were full priced, because we’ve tested these brands and they’ve lasted us not just through one or two brutal winters, but long enough to pass down through a few kids. So even at full price, that’s a pretty great value. But...

George and Georgette’s cool kids shoes have an even cooler social mission

There are a lot of things I want to do as a mom, but a big one is to raise the kinds of kids (and eventually, adults) who think about others’ needs before their own. It’s something we talk about a lot in our house — especially around the holidays — whether it’s finding the time to volunteer, donating items to those in need, or even buying for ourselves from companies that are finding ways to give back in a big way. So when I find companies that are doing really cool things that can broaden my kids’ sense of compassion, I’m...

5 cool no-tie sneakers for boys. Because, anything to make the mornings easier.

I am definitely a fan of no-tie sneakers. I mean, even though my 9-year old son knows how to lace up his sneakers perfectly fine, he much prefers being able to slip his shoes on in the morning right before he runs out the door. And I’m all for anything to make our mornings go a lot smoother, especially with four kids to get ready and out the door. Since my boy prefers athletic shoes over traditional slip-on sneakers (like my personal favorite, Vans), I’m glad that these days, they’ve got lots of cool no-tie sneakers for boys that are perfect for...

Our favorite summer sandals for women and kids from the massive new Target sale: Most under $12!

This post presented in partnership with Target If you’re not a total Target addict like I am (seriously, my daughter and I spent a good two hours in their Brooklyn store yesterday and I have the biceps to show for it), you may not be aware that they just kicked off their Deal Days of Summer Sale. Let’s just say…huge. Discounted items are even more discounted. And if you happen to have the Cartwheel app, which saved me a sweet 20% off the sheets I was buying anyway, then even better.

The cutest new kids’ sneakers? Found them.

We’re dying of cuteness over here! Having just taken a look at the brand new collection of cute kids’ sneakers from EMU Australia — oh my goodness. Adorable. I think they’re sporty enough for a trip to the playground but stylish enough for Sunday brunch. Provided you’re not brunching at Buckingham Palace. They’re definitely on the spendy side, but how can you resist the designs and all that awesome detail — like the fin behind the shark, or the paw print on the sole? Just be warned: you’ll need to add a good 10 minutes to your walks down the block now, because people are...

Vans shoes, even customizable for your budding fashion designer

I just so happened to be in a Vans store without children last weekend (dreamy, right?) and whoa, just when I thought some of my favorite shoes couldn’t get any cooler, they did. If you’re like me and are shopping for spring and summer shoes for your kids, take a peek at what I found. So, while the Late Night line isn’t super new, it’s definitely new to me. I snatched up the Donut slip-ons for my daughter, who’s completely, 100% obsessed with them. But I have to say the Pizza slip-ons cracked me up. Related: Fayvel shoes let...

These brilliant light-up rain boots for kids will brighten even the dreariest of days.

My criteria for selecting rain boots for my kids is pretty simple: The boots need to keep their feet dry. But, now that I’ve found Western Chief Kids’ lighted boots, and I know my kids are going to be begging for their boots to do more than just keep them warm, I am certain I’ll be adding one more box to that checklist: Light up. With a bright neon light in the heel that is activated with every step, Western Chief’s lighted boots will make jumping in puddles a bit more dazzling. I also like that their blinking steps will make our kids a bit more visible while...

Snoots: Sneaker-boots for kids who want to stay comfy, and the parents who want them to stay warm.

When I first got wind of Snoots sneaker-boots (get it? Snoots?) from Stride Rite, I first thought I didn’t really need them. After all, I live down south and we don’t tend to think of daily walks to school in the snow as a kids’ wardrobe issue that needs addressing. Then this year’s snowpocalypse hit.  All my kids wanted to do is get outside and play in the snow. So now I’m happy to have a smart winter boot options for kids that will be useful to us whether or not we get a lot of snow again. Related: 12 adorable winter jackets to keep...

Meet the awesome new superhero Robeez: Able to leap all that baby gear all over your floor in a single bound.

Robeez has been a favorite of mine since before my kids were even born; I was literally buying them when I was still pregnant. With awesome styles like the little peanut elephant shoes, football frenzy shoes, and monogrammed options – could you blame me? Well this fall they’ve taken things up a notch from cute-to-super-cool with their new superhero Robeez shoes. Let’s just say, they are awesome. This is the first time I’ve seen an all-over print on Robeez, and I love the modern black-and-white graphics with the red letters that make these shoes pop. They would also go great with the bright, bold colors that we’ve been spotting this...

Fayvel shoes let kids play their own shoe designer

It’s probably no surprise that when a pair of Fayvel shoes for kids arrived at my house, my brood went nuts. There may have been some fighting, actually. Designer Erin Slater was inspired by her own nostalgia for sticker collecting to create shoes that allow today’s kids to do just that, only on their feet. The final concept is brilliant: Shoes with velcro on the sides that allows kids to customize their pair with special patches known as Frieze tags. Think Jibbitz on Crocs, but way cooler. Way way cooler.  At least to me, anyway. As it turns out, it’s not just a gimmick. The sneakers are comfortable,...
