One of the most important sections of the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA) is 15 (b) [15 U.S.C. §2064]. It requires manufacturers, distributors, importers and retailers of a consumer product that contains a defect, which could create a substantial product hazard or creates an unreasonable risk of serious injury or death, to immediately report the relevant information to the Commission. Through the years, including the twenty year period when I was Director of Compliance and Enforcement, the reporting obligation has proven to contribute enormously to public safety.

Crawling is a milestone for any busy baby and it takes many forms… the army crawl, three-legged dog, slither. No matter the method, it’s a full-body experience and most learners have the bumps, bruises and rug burns to prove it. Thanks to Crawling Forward 123, crawling can now be a cushy experience for both parents and babies. Exclusively designed for a baby’s crawling stage, the Crawling Forward 123 accessory is worn on top of baby’s everyday outfit, protecting the front from the floor and supporting the knees with inside padding.

Footwear can be pricey for families with children, especially those on a budget. Kids grow out of shoes so quickly, it can be tempting to go to a local discount store and pick up the least expensive pair, hoping that they don’t wear out before the child moves up to the next size. But the selection at many large chain stores can be surprisingly small and not always what the parents are looking for. Luckily, shoes don’t have to be expensive to be cute and stylish. Itzy Bitzy carries a great selection of trendy kid’s shoes that won’t hurt the family budget.

Tied-up T-shirts have gone through several phases of popularity, from 1950’s California beach girls to 1980’s pop stars and beyond. From a practical standpoint, it’s a means of keeping an oversized shirt from getting in the way of movement, but it’s also a cute, flirty fashion choice that complements a number of looks. For years, rubber bands have been the T-shirt tie of choice, but now there’s T-Shirt Tails.

After spending over 35 years inspiring and encouraging youth as a teacher, Belinda Daise felt it was time to solidify her mark. She recognized that there were common factors that often prevented students from having a successful social and emotional experience: peers and self-perception. With a love for children and fashion, she created B Ukneeque. The clothing and accessories line is for girls aged 3 to teens. Products range from shirts to accessory kits to iPad covers. Their very popular accessory kit includes a belt, a “BU” buckle, a bow, and socks; all packaged together making it the perfect gift.

Even though it’s worn under clothes and rarely seen in public, underwear has become quite the fashion item. A time traveler from Victorian times would likely be horrified by the way we freely talk about and advertise undergarments, but it’s no shame at all for companies that manufacture these necessities. Houston-Based Fun Boxers lives up to its name by making fun, hip undergarments for men, women and children. Whether they’re for little kids just learning how to dress themselves or older tweens with picky tastes, these comfy, colorful and trendy garments are designed to look and feel great.

Just Bones began when Mompreneur Jennifer Weisman was unable to find bathing trunks for her twin sons. Her guys loved the look of boardshorts, but all the available models slipped down their skinny bodies. Weisman took a long look at what was out there and then invented the adjustable waist, concealing it under a small flap held shut by Velcro. Starting with just a few retailers, Weisman hit it big and now Just Bones boardshorts have become a hot item with lots of love flowing their way.
