Pincushion Growth Charts, $70
my mom marked the height of my brother, sister and me on the back of a door in our house. It’s sometimes hard to believe we were ever that little, and I still think it’s cool to have documented. So when I stopped by a new kids’ store that recently opened in my neighborhood, I couldn’t resist picking up this Growth Chart from Pincushion for my nephew. This colorful canvas chart is hand made in India from 100% organic cotton. They are screen-printed with fun scenes in toxin-free dyes with plenty of space to write down other milestones in addition to their growth progress. The store only had the city scene right now, but assured me others would be coming in soon, so my nieces will be getting one too.

fall collection! This amazing brand out of Sweden was founded in 2006 by illustrator Cassandra Rhodin. Her inspiration came from her great grandfather, the legendary circus king Brazil Jack, and her line reflects what the name conjures up. It’s totally fashionable, carefree, a bit whimsical, and made with sustainability in mind. Quality clothing that little ones are pretty much psyched to wear. With all of the great prints and wearable silhouettes, it’s hard to not want to scoop up the whole collection.

Straight out of Denmark..
comes Popupshop.net, a line of high quality organic basics for boys and girls. The collection consists of a ton of totally classic, stylish, well-made, wearable pieces that are designed with the idea of mixing & matching in mind. Popupshop.net was founded in 2007 and uses innovative sustainable fabrics to create two collections per year – one for spring/summer, the other for fall/winter. I love the muted color palette, understated details, easy silhouettes, and timelessness of the collection. If only I were under the age of 12!
Just got word..
Mimosa Robot Tee, $28
from Mimosa that the Robot Tees are in! They are the latest project from the brand and are made from 100% organic cotton in the USA. The eco-friendly robot screenprint is available in either gold or silver, depending on the color tee you pick. Mimosa was started by 2 sisters, Ariel and Holly. They are from a creative family, their mom an artist and their dad a writer, so it isn’t a huge surprise these two had an entrepreneurial itch. Holly does all of the illustrations and Ariel handles much of the business. The result is a line of unique tees, prints and cards that are made with the highest quality materials. Customization is also available. I was thinking the Robot Tees for my neices and nephew, but all the prints are very sweet, so it’s really hard to pick one. I guess if this is the hardest decision I’m dealing with, things aren’t so bad!
