While swaddling is known to calm down a fussy baby, using a godee (a cloth pouch) takes baby to a whole new level of peace and comfort. Promoting a cozy place for baby to feel safe and happy, MeLuvKush makes godees in attractive patterns and prints inspired by India’s rich visual culture. The godee is great for people who aren’t very confident holding a newborn, since it keeps the baby supported better than outside of it, and easily converts to a changing pad when needed. Handmade by skilled women right outside of Delhi, India and made with safe fabric dyes, the godee is the perfect gift for new mothers right out of the hospital.

KidShow - Las Vegas, Nevada (2/16/15 - 2/18/15)

Buyers at the KIDShow Vegas, held February 17-19th at Bally’s, were able to discover lots of new exhibitors and brands, as well as proven favorites that always support this show because they can rely on it to come through with new doors, plus opportunities to enhance existing retailer relationships. The event’s hospitality and buyer-friendly atmosphere is always welcoming. After attending every KIDShow for almost 15 years, I was particularly pleased to meet new people that charged my professional battery for the health of the children’s fashion industry, and new brands with something both worthy to offer and be discovered by specialty stores looking for their next buzzworthy line.

Safety is a major concern of anyone involved with kids. They need to be visible out on bikes and scooters, in storms and any time decreased visibility could cause a problem. i Rock the Block brings stylish rain jackets that combine fashion, function and safety. Jackets are comfy to wear, hooded and well-fitted with a soft-touch waterproof shell that keeps the kid inside snug and dry. The fully-lined interior adds an extra touch of warmth. Add to it high-visibility safety trims that can be seen for up to 600 feet away.

Babies do lots of things well –– among them is growing fast. Blink and the baby who fit that outfit perfectly has totally grown out of it. The answer is adjustable clothes which comes to fruition via Posheez by American Posh. The line is the brainchild of Denisa Dragu who was unable to find a quality one-piece that would fit her long, slim newborn. Before you could say “perfect fit,” she came up with premium quality clothes that can be tweaked so body and outfit actually come together perfectly.

In 2006, Artterro founder and CEO Forrest Voedisch was shopping for a craft kit for her young sons. She noticed lots of uninspiring projects, cheap materials and wasteful packaging.

Voedisch states, “With the help of my business partner, Jennifer Conn, and the rest of our team in Madison, Wisconsin, the Artterro line now includes 12 kits that make it easy to explore needle felting, decoupage, art journaling and more.” Popular kits include Wire & Bead Art, Bookmaking, Art Dolls, and Wool Felt Jewelry.

Toy Fair - New York City, New York (2/14/15 - 2/17/15)

Valentine’s Day is all about love, and when you’re a kid, there are few things you love more than your toys. Considering this, it makes sense that that the 2015 New York Toy Fair kicked off its opening day on February 14 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center. Toy Fair brings together hundreds of exhibitors from far and wide. The whopping 422,000 net square feet of exhibition space was divided into convenient product zones, making it easy for visitors to find the types of products and companies they were looking for. Manhattan Toy, Lil’ Orphan Nannies, Le Toy Van and OgoSport all felt the love in their respective product zones.
