If you are the mom of a tween-aged daughter, you will appreciate how difficult it can be to shop for clothing. The changes that take place in a girl’s body at this important age can make beachwear in particular a challenge, especially with the self-consciousness and awkwardness that can be hallmarks of these transitional years. If this is an issue, for your retail customers, check out the Squirtini Bikini swimwear line. This line can take the stress out of choosing swimsuits for both parent and daughter.

Families have so many occasions to celebrate, from birthdays to holidays to weddings. Each milestone is a chance to get together with loved ones and observe rich traditions. Many times this means putting your best foot forward, wearing clothing that suits the day and fits just right. When there are kids involved, this can be a bit of a challenge. Most stores usually carry only a small selection of special occasion wear for children, and the choices don’t always have the style and quality that parents are seeking to find. Enter Mini Treasure Kids, also known as MTK, a line of eye-catching, quality upscale clothing for girls and boys.

When Paul Barton’s sister got pregnant, he and his wife, Sandy, discovered a gap in the children’s market. They searched for baby clothes that were both fashionable and sustainable, but couldn’t find anything that they liked. Clothes produced in an ethical manner all seemed to be frumpy and boring, whereas the cutest baby clothes were in no way sustainable. When the couple discovered they had a baby of their own on the way, they decided to take on the challenge themselves. Spence Baby was born, named after their new little girl, Spencer Grace.

A few years ago, Majorie Labrèque Lepage was asked to sew a stuffed toy for a friend’s new arrival. At once, she received copious praise from everyone for her furry creation. She soon realized the joy she felt for creating these unique creatures. As a daughter of an entrepreneur, she could not help but start her own business –– Velvet Moustache. The brand has a number of lines, including cushions, soft toys and fashion. The cushions are square-shaped animal and people-like characters with wide eyes and over-sized ears. Their furry fabric makes them a great accessory for beds and playrooms.

School is back in session and some of that summer brain drain is showing up in full force.

There’s a new way to look at diaper bags. Up to now, no company had delved into the world of microbes (aka icky germs) or anti-stick coatings, but that’s changed due to this dynamic duo of new licensed diaper bags: Ju-Ju-Be has begun a collaboration with Hello Kitty, the iconic brand everyone adores. The new Kitty collection features signature diaper bag designs in a range of shapes with –– retailers take note –– a custom print; bow zipper pulls; and super-cute, functional hidden surprises such as embroidery details inside each bag. Invite shoppers to peer inside the bag to get a look at the “hidden” three apples, a nod to Hello Kitty who herself is three apples tall and weighs five apples.

Over thirty years ago, Becky Cannon asked herself how she could provide natural care both inside and out for her future family. She spent the next three years studying and teaching young children about natural foods in Japan. There she had her daughter Emi. After moving back to the States and preparing for the birth of her second daughter, Mari, she missed the unique baby products she discovered in Japan. Soon, Cannon started importing diaper covers from Japan to make them available for other parents. Today, Cannon and her daughters are the mother-daughter owners of i play.®, as they continue to focus on creating the best baby-friendly products.
