Children's Club - New York, New York (8/3/14 - 8/5/14)

From August 3rd through 5th, 2014, ENK International hosted Children’s Club, at New York City’s Pier 94. Over 650 brands ranging from traditional to contemporary; ready-to-wear; swimwear; footwear; accessories; and gift items for infants to pre-teens participated showing Holiday, Resort and Spring 2015 offerings. More than eighty first-time exhibitors were on hand. Among the many outstanding labels, Leesa Valentino from The Giggle Guide® was especially taken with Dress Rags Playwear, Bonnie Baby London, Tokyo Baby Cafe and mbaby by Munchkin, making its debut at the show.

Recently, I was at a department store (that will remain nameless) on the hunt for — what else? — shoes to wear to trade shows. Half the place was crazy with shoppers buzzing around the end-of-season sandal sale. Sales help swarmed all around that area but in the full-price section where I was, it was deserted. No shoppers. And no sales people. Finally, I flagged a guy down, but he immediately announced that his handheld scanner didn’t work so he couldn’t help me. When I asked him to give me a hand with finding someone else, his response was to glance around listlessly and shrug before wandering off. Seriously? A shrug?

British-born clothing designer and motherhood educator Rosie Pope is at the top of the momprenuer pyramid, running an enterprise that includes maternity clothing stores on both coasts, as well as a maternity concierge service, a book and a television show. And she does it all while looking great. While this energetic mother of four is a renaissance woman, her first passion was fashion. She got her start working in the popular Pea in a Pod maternity stores, and was inspired to try her hand at a design business of her own. The result is Rosie Pope Maternity, a collection of classy, chic and up-to-the-minute styles made for pregnant and nursing women.

Beginning swimmers, competitive swimmers, and even those just having fun in the water need to be have clear vision in order to move around properly in an aquatic environment, and swim goggles are the best way to achieve that. But swim goggles aren’t just about safety and necessity; they’re also meant to be stylish and easy to wear. Bling 2o is a line of fun, fanciful swim goggles in a variety of looks that kids love.

No matter the age, women love purses. So when Shelila Culver’s daughters asked for a dance bag for their ballet class, Culver knew it had to be special. With the smash hit of the design, Culver Cutie was born. The company offers beautiful and unique bags for girls who want to spotlight their individual style. The bags are shaped like the bodice of a ballerina all the way down to the tutu. They are designed with high-quality fabric and tulle, and reinforced bottoms to support heavier items. Each bag has a roomy pocket for those go-to essentials and dancer necessities. The sturdy handles provide durability for those playful little girls that like to run around as they show off their stylish accessories.

In the past 5 years since the founding of Little Crown Interiors, co-owners and designers Naomi Alon and Gerri Panebianco have created 100 unique, one-of-a-kind nurseries, children’s rooms and playrooms. The duo’s latest project is an adorable, traditional boy’s nursery in the historic, oceanfront enclave of Long Beach, California. Taking cues from the gorgeous 100-year-old craftsman home, as well as their extensive design experience over the course of 100 projects, Little Crown Interiors created baby Mackinley’s nursery with a historically inspired color palette and an understated music theme.

If parents could give their kids a boost in language skills at a very early age, would they try it? That’s the mission behind Creative Baby and its extended line of educational products that offers baby steps in exposing tots to phonics, foreign languages, geography and nature. Their award-winning foam i-Mats –– where pictures “talk” to youngsters when touched with a Voice Pen™ –– expand with two new play mats, Alphabet i-Mat ($29.99 MSRP) and Under The Sea i-Mat ($29.99). ABC Kids Expo (Sept. 6-10, Las Vegas) attendees can try out each of these pieces at Booth #3625.

I continue to be impressed with the product innovations introduced by HALO. The introduction of the HALO Bassinest was a personal product highlight of mine when it was first introduced at ABC Kids Expo. Now, the brand is introducing more innovations and options to co-sleeping and baby’s own safe sleep space with new Bassinest product selections. Great news for retailers and new parents. The HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper is a safe and effective way to keep a sleeping baby close to mom in the early months, but always in his own safe sleep space. Based on the popularity of the original design featuring a silver base and sophisticated Damask pattern from the Premiere Silver series, additional choices will be unveiled at the ABC Kids Expo, shipping December, 2014, for a January 5, 2015 date online and in stores.

The best thing about babies is they allow us to relive our childhoods. And the Kissy Kissy Spring/Summer ‘15 collection is heavy on summertime nostalgia with imagery that evokes memories of lazy days at the beach, fun adventures in the park and long cruises along the water. The beloved baby clothing brand offers new twists on favorite silhouettes, themes and treatments for a fresh update on the signature look moms, grandmothers and gift-givers have grown to love. And after a successful preview capsule, the label officially launches its sleepwear range with a full line of Peruvian Pima cotton, snug-fitting pajamas for girls and boys sizes 12-18 months to 6.
