Build your own monster, no lightning storm necessary

It’s alive! And it’s adorable. And you don’t need any pesky lightning to bring it to life. In fact, all you need are a few eye stalks, some munchy teeth, and possibly some adorable chevrons and stripes, because of course monsters come in chevrons and stripes. It’s 2013, after all. If you love eco-conscious, kid-safe blocks as much as we do, you won’t want to miss this collection of adorable monster body parts that can be stuck together in creative ways. We’ve covered Mad Scientist Blocks¬†before, but these Stack N Scare wooden blocks from My Sweet Muffin really take...

A changing pad and chic chevron diaper bag in one

Changing diapers is hardly what I’d call my chicest hour. But then I had never used this. Don’t miss a great giveaway after the jump! The new Patemm navy chevron-striped pad is available exclusively at Pottery Barn Kids–and yay for the small mom-run company that created it. We have loved Patemm changing pads going way back to 2006 for the super smart round design that allows moms to lay their little one down any which way for a diaper change and not have them squirm themselves off a corner. And after all these years? They’re still made in the...

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...

Kids’ name labels get the chevron touch

We love chevrons around here–on everything from baby blankets and hats to birthday favor bags and onesies. Their cool, retro School House Rock vibe somehow translates into the perfect pattern for modern kids. So the name labels from Namemaker, for things like water bottles, sippy cups, and containers, are right up our chevon-loving alley. Even better that these are stickers with serious substance. They’re made with a special durable polyester that renders them totally waterproof–even in the dishwasher, which is a huge plus. You can have up to three lines of text if you so choose, and, even though the stickers are durable,...

Modern baby blankets – I’ll take one of each, please

When giving a gift to an expecting mother, I prefer finding something that’s of very good quality, a reasonable price point and aesthetically pretty–but practical at the same time. Fortunately, those three thing are becoming easier to find all together. Especially at this amazing new shop. My first response when seeing Little Hip Squeaks was pure excitement. This new Etsy shop has the cutest products all made from soft organic jersey in a variety of patterns and colors from vivid chevrons to owls to marching elephants. Owner Amy Richardson designs all of the fabrics herself. Also everything from her...

Hot trend alert: Chevrons are for kids!

Chevron stripes have been one of the hottest design trends and far less polarizing than the moustache. Chevrons are literally on every available surface, and I’m still in no mood to give them up–they just make everything look so fun and fresh. Whatever you call them, chevron or zig zags, these stripes are here to stay. Here are my favorite ways to see them on kids. It’s birthday party season at my house, so I’ve had my eye on these little bitty party favor bags by Whisker Graphics — the bold colorful zigzags make them perfect for parties. This simple...
