Happy birthday Dr. Seuss! You’re still alive in our hearts and on our bookshelves.

Every year, we so love honoring the birthday of Dr. Seuss and celebrating all the wonderful work he created for generations of children. Of course his many books and their important lessons are the most dear to our hearts, but he’s created so many wonderful characters that have inspired clothing, decor, snack ideas and more over the years, that we thought we’d round up our favorites. Because there’s never a bad day to get  little more Seuss into your life.     8 super fun Dr Seuss snack recipes for kids we think you’ll love. (These Seuss fruit tower treats from Superhealthy Kids) Free printable Dr...

Adaptive clothing for special kids gets more stylish. Thanks, Tommy Hilfiger.

It’s hard enough to get the kids up and ready for school most days, but when your morning routine also includes a lengthy struggle with buttons and zippers, it’s extra frustrating. This week, some of my friends and their fashionable tots who happen to have special needs got some very exciting news: The nonprofit group Runway of Dreams launched a cool collection of adaptive clothing from Tommy Hilfiger. In this collection, magnets replace zippers and buckles, and hidden magnetic closures are literally a snap to get on, with faux buttons on the outside that won’t give it away. This way, kids with disabilities can dress...

Super fun, mismatched socks for kids that also teach a good lesson. (Yes, really.)

My kids come downstairs with mismatched socks all the time, but I learned to let it go long ago. Who needs to match, when wearing stripes and polka dots together is so much more fun? (Also, it makes putting away the laundry way, way easier.) Recently we found an awesome new company that takes mismatched socks to a new level. Each set of bright, bold, colorful PALS socks pairs two different creatures, like cats and dogs or birds and worms. The aim is to teach kids that it’s cool to be friends with someone who is different than you. My kids tried...

Rockin’ Baby goes from slings to a cool kids’ line that gives back in a big way

Our editor Liz, who once touted herself as “sling-incompetent,” fell in love with Rockin’ Baby slings years ago both for their style and their charitable do-gooding that supports mothers in need. I count myself among their fans too. So we both couldn’t be any more excited about their new baby and kids clothing collection.

Small Apparel: Cool little tees that give back in a big way

Supporting amazing artists and designers we find at cool, yet undiscovered indie shops we find is so important to us — in fact, it’s why Kristen and Liz started Cool Mom Picks in the first place. So when we find a shop like Small Apparel, we can’t wait to share them with you all. This tiny, family-run business currently makes very cool tees and onesies for kids with positive, inspiring designs and messages. However, their profit margins are super slim. So going forward, if their Kickstarter campaign is successful, their goal is to start donating 25% of all their sales to support kid-related non-profits related to the designs, without raising...

Hey, Cool Mom Picks: Any good recommendations for a waterproof winter jacket for my preschooler? I’m starting to realize it’s probably going to get cold on the East Coast fast! Thanks! – Leah, via the Cool Mom Picks Facebook page   Hi Leah! I totally feel your pain.
