Time for Easter outfits for the kids! Luckily, it’s also time for the mid-season Jacadi sale.

For those of us still digging our way out of winter, it’s hard to believe that spring is nearly here — and that Easter is less than a month away. Which means it’s time to start thinking about swapping our kids’ Sunday sweats for their Easter best. Thankfully, the big mid-season sale from our partner, Jacadi Paris, happens to be timed perfectly with our kids Easter outfit and other special occasion needs. Considering the Jacadi 30% off sale going on right now, if you were planning on putting together a little something fancy for the kids, this is the time to do it at a...

Courtney Courtney: Now one more way to get your hands on our favorite girls’ dresses. If you’re quick.

At a time we’re seeing some of our favorite small artists abandon Etsy for their own storefronts, we’re thrilled to see one of our all-time favorite makers, Courtney Courtney, back there again, giving us one more place to shop in addition to the Courtney Courtney shop on Big Cartel. Kristen and I may each own more of her amazing handmade dresses for our kids than anyone else in the world, and every day our kids put them on it gives us joy. While other artists have tried the whole upcycled t-shirts turned into dresses thing, no one we’ve ever seen does it quite...

My Little Pony shoes for kids are here. And like friendship, they are magic

With a seven-year-old who has yet to outgrow the My Little Pony obsession, I’ve conceded. All things being equal, I realize I’d rather her hide in her room with her friends role-playing stories about friendship and teamwork than whatever it is other cartoons are teaching–or not teaching. (Ahem, Sponge Bob.). So of course she flipped out, in a shriek-til-your-eardrums-bleed kind of way, when she first saw these My Little Pony Rainbow Dash slip-on shoes. (Update: This style shown no longer available, but visit the website for a full selection of My Little Pony sneakers for kids.) The design is pretty great,...

A monster t-shirt kids are guaranteed to love. Because they design it.

It’s hard to find a kid who doesn’t love customizing things to make them their own, from a blank notebook to their bedroom walls. And while I’d rather not have the interior of my car “customized” with stickers, I do want to foster my kids’ love for artistic expression. So, I kind of geeked out over the customizable t-shirt kits by Creatures & Features. And I think they will too. Each kit includes an organic, US-made t-shirt with a monster outline on it and a set of features you iron-on to create a design that’s all your own. They call them a “boy kit” and “girl kit,” but...

Cute, cozy, durable pajamas for kids: Our tried and true favorites. Let the snuggle party begin.

According to that rascal of a groundhog last week, it looks like winter will be sticking around the Northeast for six more weeks. I’m pulling out my Silver Linings Playbook, and choosing to see it as an extension on snuggle parties with my youngster. And everyone knows that warm, comfy PJs are an absolute must for proper snuggling.  So here are 6 cute and cozy — and above all, durable — pajamas for kids I love, from baby up to school age. We love that they are built to last (no holes in the knees after two wearings, yay!) and because...

A first look at the cutest new kids clothes from Appaman for spring

If you’re the type who follows kid fashion well, join the club. We’re excited to offer you an exclusive first look at the Appaman spring 2015 collection that just launched this very second. We’ve loved Appaman since way way back when all of our kids were wee ones, but the truth is, they now do cool for tweens so well so you don’t have to be bummed when your kids hit six and suddenly they’re out of the label. There are some new things in the new collection that I can’t wait to let my kids try on. So, I thought I’d pick out a few of my favorite warmer-weather...

Princess Awesome: Where trains, dinos, and science symbols help you dress #likeagirl

It’s been pretty well established by now that girls are capable of loving both science and pink. They might even like dinosaurs and pirates and trucks and purple princesses…all together. I know, it’s like a world gone crazy for most mainstream toy marketers who can’t seem to reconcile this wacky “girls like science and trucks” stuff. But hey, there’s hope. Maybe they’ll take some cues from Princess Awesome, a new clothing label for our times. Related: Quirkie kids: Pink tees for boys. And girls. Washington, D.C. moms Rebecca Melsky and Eva St. Clair had so much success with their handmade dresses for babies...

American Museum of Natural History and J. Crew make history with cool science t-shirts

When I took my son to the American Museum of Natural History in NYC last summer, I realized that I’d forgotten how full of fun and wonder museums can be. The fab collection of museum-inspired science t-shirts for kids from J. Crew for AMNH is bringing it all back–for him and for me. The six designs are largely gender neutral and integrate fun science facts. How long are a T. Rex’s teeth? What will you find in the Hall of Gems? I’m not going to tell you. But the shirts can lead you to the answers.   Related: Rock star science shirts for rock...

Home T shirts : When you’re proud to be…well, from wherever you’re from.

I smiled right away when I discovered Home T shirts, and you probably will too. Because hey, Texans aren’t the only ones happy to show a little state pride. These super soft, US-made adult tees, kids tees, and baby onesies cover all 50 states, plus Puerto Rico, Cuba, the UK, and even the entire continents of Australia and Africa, simply featuring the word Home over a screen-printed state silhouette. And in a thorough nod to democracy, even DC gets representation here. I support that.   I only feel bad for Colorado Home T wearers, because it just looks like the word Colorado over a big...

Baby pants made just for all-star crawlers

It was so exciting to watch my daughter learn to crawl–until she bypassed the area rug and face-planted onto the hardwood floor. We used to joke that she needed knee pads, so I’m excited to find Go Little One Go anti-slip crawling pants for babies, just in time for baby number two. The super cute gripping stars cover the knees of these one-size-fits-all bottoms, giving baby some traction and control on slippery surfaces. They’re made from super soft and breathable bamboo fabric–which I really love for its extra coziness–and are designed to stretch and move with baby as she takes off. Plus? So cool looking!  ...

Big UNIQLO sale alert: 10 awesome kids’ clothing pieces under $20.

I am never one to pass up a UNIQLO sale, especially since they’ve become my personal go-to for pants and sweaters. Seriously, I wear them pretty much every single day in some combination. But their kids clothes are fabulous too. If you’re not yet familiar with UNIQLO, it’s a Japanese-based company that makes what I’d describe as affordable modern and urban clothing for the entire family. Like H+M only more basics and solid colors, lots of gender neutral styles, and an excellent selection of clothes for kids. That includes non-hoochie clothes for girls. Hooray. So of course I spent way too long on the site, searching...

Up to 50% off the most gorgeous clothes to get our kids through winter. We’ll take it!

Winter officially started just only a week ago, which means we’ve still got plenty of cold weather ahead for sweaters and hats and outerwear to wrap the kids in. We know, we can’t believe it either. And if your kids are anything like ours, they like to grow. Often right in the middle of the season. Which is why we’re always grateful for awesome sales on kids’ clothes, so we can score the stuff we need for less, just when we need it. So we’re cheering once again for our wonderful sponsor Jacadi and their huge winter sale, where you’ll find some of...

The coolest kids’ clothes and accessories: Editors’ Best of 2014

While we love finding the cutest baby clothes for showers (and our staff members who are going through some sort of group fertility thing this year) as our kids get older, we’re so happy to get to look for more cool clothes for older kids and tweens, who’ve aged out of the 0-6 lines. So we’re thrilled to have lots of both on our site this year, with tons of new brands, plus great new lines from brands we’ve loved for years. While this is always a tough one to narrow down, here are our picks for the coolest kids’...

Wait wait, don’t tell me: Awesome gifts from NPR

Working in the independent music world, I have a high esteem for non-commercial radio and of course the mother of it all, NPR. Supporting public radio is so important to me, as they rely heavily on listener funding to stay afloat. So if you find yourself still looking for that clever gift for the in-tune intellectual on your list, I’ve got some ideas for awesome NPR gifts from their incredibly smart and hip shop. You know, should you already have an Ira Glass finger puppet.   We love reusable grocery bags and naturally a bag is a great place to proclaim your love for public...

Superhero hats for kids who already have the capes. And the imagination.

Even superheroes can get chilled while out leaping tall snow drifts in a single bound. To keep your caped—or cloaked–crusader toasty, check out Neon Eaters’ warm and adorable superhero knit hat at Psychobaby. I love the simple styling with its contrast-color “mask” and bold star which allows your kids to be whatever superhero they feel like being that day. And I appreciate that the eyeholes are large enough for good peripheral vision since we all know that villains tend to lurk in corners. Just remind your superhero to look out for icy patches when they go speeding down the sidewalk faster...

Nununu: Another cool clothing line for little kids becomes a cool line for tweens and big kids.

Like so many of you with kids who start to hit six, seven, eight…you realize that your favorite, go-to clothing brands either stop making clothes that fit your kids, or you see the styles start to get a bit more uh, adult than you might be ready for. (Hint to mall stores: Our second grade girls realllly don’t need ruching below a v-neck to draw attention to breasts they don’t have.) It’s why I’ve always been so grateful for brands like Tea and Hanna Andersson whose clothes grow with my kids. And now, I get to add nununu to that list...

A new line of cute, trendy kids’ clothes from Korea by way of London

Like maybe some of you, my three-year-old has two small but separate wardrobes: The inexpensive, easily replaceable outfits he wears to nursery school; and the few higher quality, trendy kids’ clothes I save for the days he’s not painting without a smock. To add to the latter list: the darling styles from the new online kids’ clothing shop Ebabee for kids up to age 6. Ebabee offers a beautifully curated collection of cute, comfy, and slightly quirky clothing from Korea for trendsetting girls and boys–though sadly for us, the little boys’ options are more limited. There are plenty for girls, though, and if I had a daughter, I’d...
