Tattly tattoos just got 100% cooler. Because they’re 50% off.

We can hardly believe it’s been two years since we first told you about the launch of the hippest, best-looking temporary tattoos ever made. And we’ve got the zillion photos of our kids covered in them to prove it. Well in honor of their second birthday they’re having a huge limited time sale and we have the scoop!   Starting…now (seriously, you heard it here first) you can get 50% off anything in the Tattly tattoo shop. If you need classroom or camp party treats when cupcakes aren’t allowed, goodie bag favors, or just a fun treat for your...

It’s fun, it’s a wonderful toy.

I am absolutely fascinated with these posters, which bring classic toys to life in new…or old ways really, by use of vintage patent drawings. The Slinky Poster from art collective Oliver Gal might be my favorite, with it’s 40’s-era textbook style industrial drawings. It seems like a parody at first, only it’s not at all. There’s also a LEGO toy figure from 1979, the original LEGO brick from 1961, a Mr. Potato Head, and then another series of faux blueprints inspired by architectural drawings. But grab them quick–they’re on sale at Fab only another day or two.   They’re...

The Marimekko summer sale has us clicking “add to cart” way too much

My love for the Scandinavian design of Marimekko goes back to when I slept on their sheets as a kid myself. (My parents had great taste, lucky me!) So when I see the whole shop is on sale up to 50% off, I’m all over it. Visit the Marimekko sale for truly amazing deals on all kinds of great things from housewares, tech, kids clothes and even stylish goodies for you. You can also shop some of our favorite picks directly through Luvocracy, like the Converse Marimekko high tops (now $45 down from $75), gorgeous cotton-silk scarves (this one...

Space boy to the rescue! Or…to the lunchroom!

As I start to take inventory of our end-of-school-year bento boxes and food storage options, I ask myself, where did all the freaking lids go? Then I quit complaining and start looking for replacements. {Don’t miss a great limited time offer after the jump!} I cannot hold back my love for this spaceboy lunch bento box. It’s not cheap, but it is on sale for a limited time, and it is adorable. And hopefully the lid makes it back home this time. Made from BPA-free plastic with EU standards (always reassuring) the design isn’t only cool, the 6″x5.5″ size...

Up to 50% off the coolest toys, gifts and more at Kangarooboo

We’ve loved the wonderful mom + pop owned toy shop Kangarooboo since we first found them back in 2007, so we admit we were super bummed to hear that they were closing shop after all these years.  Road and Rail Crane Train, $20, now $12.79 As we wish Justin and Jennic well on their new adventures, we wanted to share their big closing sale, where you’ll find the coolest indie toys, accessories, and more at pretty awesome discounts while supplies last. Here are just a few of our favorites: BlaBla Baby Sookie, $52, now $31.79   Recycled Plastic Tool...

Toy boxes made better than most toys these days. Also? On sale.

From the day we discovered Kirsten Hathcock’s beautifully handmade storage pieces at Mod Mom Furniture, we fell in love. A Mod Mom toy box looks as beautiful as any other furniture in the house, even if it is made to hide decapitated Barbies and wayward LEGO pieces. And now, there are not only some gorgeous new styles, but some of the classics are on sale at great prices. Check out the toy box sample sale and while supplies last, you can score some great deals on the Gracie toy box–of which Kristen and I each own one–along with the...

70% off the cool gifts you know you want anyway

We’re always sad when we see the small businesses we love come and go, but the one silver lining are the sales for their customers. And this one happens to be a great shop with a really great sale.     For years, Spoon Sisters, has been one of our favorite destination for clever little gifts, stocking stuffers (stock up now!), and fun doodads, from alphabet cookie cutters to tattoos for your Converse shoes.

Ippinka: the shopping site for the minimalist crowd

I know these days it feels like there’s a new shopping site born every minute. But there’s one I’ve just discovered that’s fast becoming an obsession for me, because the products are so sharp, stylish and imaginative. The site is Ippinka, and they sell only products that adhere to their four principles of good design: functional, well-made, minimalist, and environmentally- and socially conscious.  Love when someone else does all the research for me. Now one huge caveat (and pet peeve) is that you have to register to be able to see the products–though I think I got around that when...

Nagging is more fun with Tetris-shaped notes

Square sticky notes are so boring. It’s much more fun to use these oh-so-familiar shapes, humming Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy as you write out a reminder to take out the garbage. Did you know that the blocks used in Tetris are called Tetriminoes? It’s true. The entire time you were trying to fit the S and Z ones together, your brain was learning to think more efficiently. We can’t promise that will happen just by using the Tetrimino-shaped Block Notes from Suck UK, but you can definitely have fun arranging them at your own speed. Block Notes...

Don’t miss this huge sale at one of our favorite baby boutiques

We love finding cool, unique baby boutiques, especially ones owned by moms (and their moms). The downside is that sometimes these amazing shops close as the owners move onto other endeavors, which is the case with Bean New York.  The upside, however, is that they’re offering 50% off everything in the store, from gorgeous layettes to special occasion dresses, and all sorts of beautiful items for babies in between. Here are some of our favorites, but act fast! At these prices, they won’t last long. {Don’t miss our picks at these amazing prices after the jump} The beautiful knitted swing...

Trendy kids’ clothes at awesome sale prices. Yep, they’ve got our attention too.

With the holidays over and out, the sales are all in full affect! Immediately following New Years, I’m always on the hunt for cute threads for my kids. Mostly online, because I seem to find the best deals here. One of my all time favorite children’s fashion sites, Nonchalant Mom, is having their winter sale now, and it’s a good one. Especially because these tend to be the kinds of splurgey clothes that most parents won’t pay full price for. Don’t miss a great discount code on already reduced prices after the jump This sweet plaid Lucky Wang Kimono...

BRIKA is more than another flash sale site. It’s less–in a good way.

While overall, I admit I’m growing a little weary of all the membership-only shopping sites (and the subsequent eight million “OUR SALE IS STARTING!” alerts in my inbox each day), there is a new one I’m excited about. I love its focus on artistry, creativity and the kind of talented designers that we always get excited about when we discover them on Etsy. The new site BRIKA seems to me a bit like a cross between Fab, Uncovet and Joyus. It’s a rather minimalist site–all about beautiful items from artists and small brands you get to learn a little...

Toys in a flash (flash sale, that is)

I love flash toy sales before the holidays. If you’re on the ball, you can score really top-quality brands at a portion of their regular prices. (You already know that, if you’ve been following us through the Cyber Monday madness this week!) Shipping can get expensive, though. The good news? Gilt is hooking up its subscribers with a flash toy sale this Friday that includes free shipping! Brands we love like Schoenhut, Uncle Goose blocks, and craft supplies from Alex Toys are all for the taking (er, buying). I am especially digging those beautiful wooden alphabet blocks for my kindergartener....

Tech gets pretty and geography gets fun. Here are a few of our favorite picks from the last week, just in case you missed them. 1. A brilliant, easy way to get your photos off your iPhone and into a photo book, finally. 2. Need a butler? This one is gorgeous, innovative, and will even help you find your keys. 3. Honk if you think this iPhone case is groovy. 4. An educational app that’s so cool, we’re playing it as much as our kids. Plus, we’re giving away a free download! 5. We found the app that will...

Small Business Saturday deals: some of our very favorite kinds of deals

We’re all about supporting small businesses here at Cool Mom Picks, so as you might guess, Small Business Saturday is one of our favorite days! Even though we already rounded up some of the best Black Friday deals from lots of our favorite indie-owned small bizzes yesterday, many of which extend through the weekend (so be sure to check!), we found a few more great deals in honor of Small Business Saturday that we wanted to share with you.  And, just a note of thanks to you, as we’re a small business ourselves. Thank you so much for your...

Small Business Saturday: Shop small, save big. What’s not to love?

We’ve been proud supporters of Small Business Saturday since it began in 2010, and we’re so happy to see it take off in a big way. (Pun intended.) Then again, are you surprised? Every day is pretty much small business day at Cool Mom Picks. However this year, there’s one more added benefit: If you’re an American Express cardholder, you can simply register your American Express card, and get an automatic $25 credit on your account when you spend $25 or more at a local small business in person today. We typed in our own zip codes and found...
