10 super cool cell phone cases for kids. (You might want them too. Just saying.)

Clearly we love finding adorable things of all kinds for kids, and cool cell phone cases is one of them. Before you think, wa-ait…kids and cell phones?  indeed it’s more common than ever. With prices dropping on early cell phone models, and parents buying themselves shiny new phones then passing down their old ones, plenty of kids are going to be getting cell phones this holiday — whether they’re using them for safety reasons, to connect with friends and classmates, or just as gaming devices when they’re home with a little down time. Of course when kids are out and about, we...

A Muppets birthday party with vintage cool

Back when my daughter was a toddler, the only show she’d watch was the Muppets Show. Let’s just say Kermit and Miss Piggy got me many a quiet shower, and to them, I’m mighty grateful. These days, there’s no shortage of awesome Muppets paraphenalia, like Muppets artwork, cool t-shirts, even iPhone cases. If only I had this fun birthday party decor back when she was little and begging me for a Muppets party. We’ve been long time fans of the Mary Had a Little Party shop on Etsy, and now, our love has grown even stronger thanks to the...

Muppets go modern with the coolest prints for your nursery

Of all my parenting achievements, I’m particularly proud that I’ve passed on a love for The Muppets to my own three kids. And now that they carry their own torch for Kermit, Beaker, and Fozzie Bear, I think they’ll love decorating their rooms with some very cool, very style-forward prints of the gang. Designed by London’s The Retro Inc, our iconic Muppets friends have gone through a mod makeover of sorts, and I just love the results. Grab a trio of your favorite characters for only $10, and the 5×7″ prints will be shipped to you. Or, if you can’t...

Word to Big Bird: neff helps skaters and boarders sweep those clouds away

If there’s one thing I hope all parents can all agree on, it’s a love for Big Bird. (There are certainly more polarizing muppets, but Big Bird isn’t one of them.) With the cooler weather finally making an appearance for most of the country, we love that one of the top skate brands is sharing that love too, and creating some funky warm headwear for kids. neff is a super cool skate and snowboarding apparel company. (You might recognize their logo of a smiley face with a tongue sticking out.) They teamed up with Sesame Street for a fabulous...

Electric Mayhem Band touring posters. 1975 was a very good year.

With so many kids having rediscovered Muppet Mania with the release of the new Muppet Movie this past year, it’s not surprising that everyone’s  favorite Henson creations are making a big pop culture comeback. Our latest discovery–Michalel dePippo’s awesome vintage style silkscreen prints. These vintage Muppet posters take on the Electric Mayhem band’s “1975 tour” in a very adult way, but one that kids will still get a kick out of. They’re limited edition silkscreens in editions of just 250, so of course Dr. Teeth,  Animal and Zoot Sax are sold out (wah!) but I’m holding out hope that...

What do Ron Burgundy, Yoda, and Pee Wee have in common?

There’s something to be said for small children looking adorable wearing characters on their chests, and yet having no earthly idea who they are. We’re smitten with the Micielomicielo shop on Etsy, where pop culture icons are transformed into adorable eco-felt and screenprinted designs applied to handmade bodysuits and t-shirts for kids and adults. Their Star Wars designs go beyond the main characters– because they have 17 different choices. That’s so awesome, I just “felt” a tremor in the Force! Other options include Mr. T, badgers, Spock, Totoro, Hello Kitty, Sesame Street, Muppets, and Transformers. Speaking of Ron Burgundy,...
