Pregnancy is a beautiful miracle, but there are still a lot of body adjustments that can make expecting mothers count their sores before their blessings! One common occurrence is swelling in the legs due to increased pressure on the veins. As the pressure increases, the body has to work harder to circulate the blood, and blood can pool throughout the legs as a result. Swollen feet, tingling, and varicose veins are common complaints. So what can pregnant women do to feel better? Preggers by Therafirm™ provides gradient compression stockings, tights, and socks that can be a woman’s best defense against leg and feet discomfort during pregnancy.

People’s fondest memories are often associated with tangible things. Vivid images of a warm summer’s day go hand-in-hand with the colorful sno-cone machine that absolutely everyone had to try. And who could forget those childhood visits to the county fair, when all the kids joyously tore into the fluffy cones of cotton candy? Companies like Nostalgia Electrics and Pennsylvania Dutch Candies are bringing back the old-fashioned treats people love, while Zoku and Fundex provide fun experiences that help make new memories for both today’s youth and the young at heart.

Satsuma, founded in 2007 by Jennifer Porter, is an eco-conscious baby apparel, soft goods and accessories that offers parents natural, healthy alternatives in everyday baby wear and bedding. The word “Satsuma” refers to a tangerine-like fruit available in Asia. The name fits the company well. It’s fresh, exotic, natural and just plain sweet! Jennifer was motivated to create the Satsuma brand because she realized that more and more parents wanted to outfit their babies in stylish, trendy gear, but also wanted to know exactly where those products came from and what went into the manufacturing process.

Everyone is aware of the children’s obesity problem in our country. To help children, what better way to make them “move more” than playing with toys that require hopping, jumping, crawling or running around? With summer approaching, it’s the perfect opportunity for kids to get up and go with toys that make exercise fun! Stock up on kinetic toys from Active People, Aerobie, Whitewings and New Tech Kites, and celebrate the non-lazy days of summer!

In the late 1990s, Lena Wu-Fuentes surveyed the racks of the children’s clothing section of a department store, and thought the selection was boring. The style was same-old, same-old: striped shirts and overalls for boys and flowered tops and jeans for girls. While these fashions were functional, they did little to set a child apart from the playground crowd. Lena decided to inject the children’s fashion industry with a little bit of attitude. That’s when the idea for Shrnk (pronounced “shrunk”) was born. Shrnk stands for “Stylish Hip Rags for Newborns and Kids”.

Dance has always been a popular pursuit for children, and why wouldn’t it be? It allows kids to expend energy and express emotions while fulfilling their desire for dress-up and role-play. Many find it’s an excellent alternative to traditional sports for fun, fitness, and friend making. Dance also has a tendency to bring out a bit of the glam diva instinct, with girls gravitating toward eye-catching costumes and accessories where diversity and variety are key. The Giggle Guide® applauds the following brands for leading the troupe: Lexi-Luu, Pomchies, Funky Diva, and Sassi Designs.
