Fight evil (and frostbite) with these cool superhero snowsuits.

Snowsuits have come a long way since Randy’s slug imitation in A Christmas Story. Today’s kid demands warmth and comfort — and the ability to move. And, in some cases, superhuman powers to help them take on the task of protecting their snow fortresses. Or, getting up after a fall. This season, the officially licensed Marvel and DC offerings from Funwear.com include jackets and pants to transform your super kid into their favorite superhero. The collection includes the best of the best — you know, Superman, Incredible Hulk, Thor. And while some of the jackets are great for waiting at...

Bring on the bling with these 7 metallic and jewel-toned coats for kids.

I don’t know about the rest of the country, but down here in Nashville we went from about 80-degree days to 30-degree mornings overnight. And before I knew it, I was fumbling through our coat closets to pull out last year’s jackets for the kids to bundle up in on their way to school. And now, I’m scanning all of my favorite shops online to find some great deals on new winter coats for this year — since the 3/4 length arms on last year’s coats won’t quite cut it when the really cold weather hits. Since winter weather can be so dreary...

We found the most adorable baby rain ponchos to get rid of the rainy day blues.

We’re fond of baby rain ponchos as easy, pull-on-and-off alternatives to the traditional raincoats with all those snaps and buttons. You too? Well then your rainy day blues are about to get a little brighter since we discovered these bright and totally charming baby rain ponchos from Seattle-based small biz, Satsuma Designs. We’ve been fans of this company for a long time now, since featuring their gorgeous bamboo blankets wayyyy back in the dark ages 2007. But we think their USA-made rain ponchos for babies take cuteness to a whole other level. With six different designs and an easy-to-wear style, you’ll be out strolling in the...

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...

Winter hats for babies and toddlers that are so cute, you’ll want to go outside more often

The weather outside may finally have us shaking in our boots, but I’m feeling kind of warm inside just looking at the cutest handmade winter fleece hats for babies and toddlers from Mrs PTB on Etsy. They’ll almost make you want to leave the warmth of your house just to hear the ooohs and ahhhs of the passersby when they see your child all bundled up. Made of soft fleece by Philadelphia crafter Angelique Buckley, there’s nothing scratchy to bother sensitive kids who normally rip a hat off in five seconds flat. And the under-the-chin snap closure–which can be replaced by velcro on request–helps...

One-of-a-kind, handmade wool slippers for baby that are beyond adorable.

As cute as those little baby fingers and toes are, winter is coming, and it’s time for all those digits to go under wraps. If you’re looking to keep your little ones snug and warm in something really special, you’ve got to check out the eco-friendly and adorable handmade wool slippers and mittens for babies from Cate and Levi. Related: Cool gifts for baby’s first Christmas: Holiday gift guide 2015 We’ve been gaga over Toronto-based Cate and Levi ever since we saw how the company took reclaimed wool, mainly from discarded sweaters that were destined for the landfill, and turned it into unique stuffed animals, incredible wall art,...

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...

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...

Meet fall headfirst with the coolest hoodies for boys

If your boys are anything like my own, falling temperatures aren’t going to keep them inside, so it’s officially time to make sure they have some cool new hoodies to keep them warm on brisk days. We’re pretty sure none of the other kids, boy or girl, will have one of these comfy, stylish hoodies, but if they do, commend them for their great taste. We raved about the boys’ tees from Warrior Poet last spring, and we’re loving their Lion’s Tooth hoodie (at top) for the fall. The houndstooth pattern is on trend, and that lion is fierce. This J Crew...

Brighten up your winter with cool, colorful jackets for kids

It’s hard to believe it, but winter’s going to be here soon, and forecasters are saying this is going to be a cold one. I, for one, not going to let the idea of a long, snowy winter get me down, especially when this year’s winter jackets for kids are so fun, bright, and colorful. I know, I know– it’s no fun trying to get kids bundled up and out the door on a freezing cold morning, but a really cool coat helps.  Especially if it’s one they don’t mind putting on themselves. Hopefully these colorful jackets for kids will get you through the...

The new Appaman outerwear line has us craving the cold. Well, almost.

When I moved back to the northeast last year after nearly ten years in Atlanta, my children and I were sorely unprepared for winter. My first purchase: An Appaman long down coat that I’d seen on Liz’s girls several winters in a row. This year, I’m determined to be ready for the colder climes, which just got a whole lot easier with our scoop on the new Appaman outerwear line. How very, very convenient. It’s not just that I love their modern twist on classic looks that never go out of style. Appaman makes coats that truly last, not...

Adorable earmuffs to keep your kid (or you!) toasty during the next winter storm.

Are you sick of the cold yet? It’s snowing in the deep south. Pigs are flying. Brrr. So, in our house, instead of dolls or video games, the thing my daughter is begging for at the moment is earmuffs. Kinda sad, but not when mama finds kids’ earmuffs as fabulous as these from the Etsy shop Rainbow Mittens. I love the fluffy and huge pale pink muffs on these (they also come in white, brown or black). And the headband is covered in pretty lace, just for some fancy. Moms, they make them in your size too, in case...

Clothes for a 9-year old girl? Here are 7 ideas…straight from a 9-year old girl.

I’ve been smitten with Wunway since I discovered their lovely, non-hoochie clothes (it’s true) for girls earlier this year. It’s no surprise I’m loving their new collection of girls clothes, but since my 9-year old picks out her own outfits these days, I thought I’d let her browse the website and share her own 7 favorites and why she loves them. I promise, I didn’t edit her one bit. Bellanie tutu skirt (above): The length of this skirt is so unique and not like other skirts of its kind.   Etoiles top: 100% cotton means it’s very soft (What? That’s...

Ever notice how gorgeous kids’ clothes look even more gorgeous when they’re on sale?

Recently we wrote about the splurgey loveliness that is Caramel Baby + Child, a UK label specializing in the stuff a lot of us dream of dressing our children in, but not necessarily at retail prices. Well now, they’re less.   The Caramel Baby & Child sale is pretty awesome–up to 60% off on even the spring/summer items that you could use straight through fall. Some of my favorite picks for my own girls include the girls’ cardigan in five colors that’s now $44, down from $110; a brown checked girls’ skirt that’s $40 down from $101; and a...

9 of the most fabulous raincoats for kids those April (and May and June) showers

With snow hopefully behind us, we’re happy to pack away our heavy coats and mittens. But when these days of spring turn rainy, a bright cheery raincoat can help keep our kids dry…and maybe even coax them outside to sing (and play) in the rain. –Christina We all know that April showers bring May flowers; I hope they are as pretty as those on Marimekko’s Hili 1 raincoat with its iconic pattern. (Yes, we’re on a Marimekko kick lately with their new dishes for kids and fun baby clothes.) And for those extra-stormy days, I appreciate the reflective safety...

Wunway clothing for girls: Hooray for another non-hoochie option!

The new site Wunway first piqued my interest for their awesome, affordable accessories for women–check out the cool wrap bracelet in our Valentine’s Day Gift Guide which I’d wear long after the chill of February is over. But mostly, they’re a fabulous resource for stylish yet totally age-appropriate children’s clothing. And now that I’ve gotten a chance to see some of the line in person, I’d say this is one worth checking out. Put together by 3 mothers with 10 children between them, it’s amazing that they still have time to craft beautiful, wearable, original designs for kids at...

Mighty mittens that stay put so kids stay warm

In my neck of the woods, it seems the snow is now here to stay. And with the cold, snowy weather comes the whining. And the complaining. And the putting-a-pair-of-mittens-on-your-toddler-sixteen-times because you know, he keeps pulling them off. So I’m happy to see that CMP-fave mimiTENS has now created a new line just for babies and littler kids. MimiTENS stay on and the kids keep warm because these Canadian-made mittens have a long, stretchy cuff that goes over a child’s arm, keeping their mittens right where you want them. We Canadians know a thing or two about keeping warm, after...
