Mabo Fall 2011

We were..

Mabo Fall 2011

Mabo Fall 2011

impressed with their spring styles, and are once again smitten with Mabo. The fall collection is very wearable and versatile, just as it should be with kids clothing. These perfectly pretty, and mostly neutral pieces, can suit any child’s or parents taste for that matter. The baby styles are the so sweet, and would make a great gift, because in my mind you can never go wrong with stripes. See more from Mabo at their online shop.

SMALLable

To those..

SMALLable

SMALLable

on the kid scene, SMALLable may have been on your radar for some time. BUT if this gem of a shop isn’t, then it should be. They offer over 200 independent brands from all over the world, many of them you won’t see anywhere else. Fashion, furniture, decorations, games and books for babies and kids at all different price points. A great place to find interesting and thoughtfully designed gifts that parents will appreciate (and believe me be very thankful for) as much as the kids. As if the beautiful product selection isn’t enough, SMALLable has an amazing online magazine that’s an easy reference of all things cool.

Gigi & Zaza

Good shoes..

Gigi & Zaza

Gigi & Zaza

are hard to find, especially for kids. They’ve got to have good support & they grow out of them so darn quick you don’t want to spend a fortune. Gigi & Zaza has a good balance, and I personally adore the look of the footwear selection they offer. Each shoe is crafted in small, family-owned factories throughout Europe. It’s nice to know that quality and details are important to this brand. What I also love is that you can find styles that are unisex, which is always a great thing if you’d like to pass down clothes to siblings and friends. The Pinocchio is our current favorite, and with the velcro closure they make shoes so much easier to take on and off. One less battle a day to fight, I’m all for it.

Folkmanis Puppets

First there was..

Chimp Puppet

Chimp Puppet

Quack the duck, then Hoss the rabbit, and now its Owlet the puppet (aka hootie) that never leaves my little girls side. These hand puppets by Folkmanis are pretty amazing characters. Started by a mom and pop 31 years ago, they have grown to become the leading manufacturer of plush puppets worldwide. The designs are really life like and are available in just about every animal imaginable. They’re educational in the way that they teach kids the different species of wild life, and even better they spark creativity. However, in Leni’s case they’re most useful for cuddling.

Felt Lion Coat

Smitten with..

Felt Lion Coat

Felt Lion Coat

this felt lion coat. What can I say, it’s just so adorable. Little Goodall was started by Molly Goodall, who’s story many of us can relate to. These designs are all custom made with wool blend felt and cotton linings. Other styles are also available like the fox, bear or dinosaur. More than just a jacket, they are like little works of art that are meant to be handed down from generation to generation. But to be honest, this is one I wouldn’t give up!

They are perfect for girls and boys alike, and can go from season to season (think layering pieces in the colder months).

Opening Ceremony by A for Apple

A little late..

Opening Ceremony by A for Apple

Opening Ceremony by A for Apple

to the party on this one, but Opening Ceremony by A for Apple is just way too cute. I have to be honest I would probably never outfit my kid in these clothes (unless they were hand-me-downs) because I’d be flat out broke. BUT they sure are fun to look at and add to my ever-growing “wishlist.” Swoon!

Juni

Inspired by..

Juni New York

Juni New York

sunny daisies, sweet hearts and a little bit of flower power, stylist Shannon Hodgson created the collection Juni. A little girls clothing line that is wearable, completely adorable and hand stitched right here in NYC. Made from 100% cotton fabrics that have a retro vibe, similar to the handmade clothes Shannon’s mother, June, used to make for her when she was a kid. So sweet, I wish Juni made clothes that came in my size too!

Raskullz Helmets

It’s never too early..

Raskullz Helmets

Raskullz Helmets

to practice good safety, right? I was introduced to Raskullz helmets by Planet Awesome Kid, and have since spotted them on all of the tots about town. Leni doesn’t even know how to ride a bike yet, but when I saw them at Target (for a great price!) I thought I should be prepared for when she does. There are tons of cool characters, and what is more important than protecting that little noggin..in style of course.

Vintage Inspired Cloth Doll

Reminiscent of..

Vintage Inspired Cloth Doll

Vintage Inspired Cloth Doll, Ela

the paper dolls from back in the day. These adorable cloth dolls are hand sewn by Etsy designer Carmit, who lives in Israel and was inspired by her daughters to start Baby To Go. Collect them all or pick just one – each doll has a story of its own. The perfect pint sized pal!
