In recent years, there have been some major changes in the world of little girls’ fashions. Many parents voiced concerns over the sea of pink and purple princess gear that was so prevalent in mainstream stores, and called for more diversity in the marketplace. If the founders of children’s clothing company Rubes and Beasty have their way, the boys’ fashion racks are in for a similar — and much needed — revolution. Mother-daughter team Sherry Hiatt and Michelle Wise brought together their combined artistry and business skills to launch their company in 2014.
While walking can be a lot of fun, sometimes it feels more like a chore. Often, this happens when the weather doesn’t cooperate with us. No matter how well a little one is wrapped up, rain or wind can make a stroller ride a less than pleasant experience. Stroller covers can help a lot, but not all of them provide optimal protection. Korean brand Manito has offered high quality, innovative stroller shields since 1999. They founded their American division, Manito USA, in 2012 to bring their convenient line of products to families on this side of the Pacific.
While a shoulder ride is a thrill for the child, it’s not always so for the grown up involved. Many parents feel uneasy having their child ride on their shoulders because of safety concerns; it seems frighteningly easy for a squirmy youngster to slip off sideways or fall backwards suddenly. There’s also the issue of physical discomfort for the parent. As children grow, carrying them — particularly for extended periods — can be a serious strain on a parent’s back, shoulders and arms. Saddle Baby helps lessen the strain by providing a new, more convenient way for both parents and kids to enjoy the ride.

Parenting is often a balancing act between safety and fun. This quest for balance applies to the products parents purchase for their children. Products that are extremely popular and recognizable to children are not always the best for kids’ health or for the environment. It’s always a bonus when a company that cares produces fun, licensed products that kids really want. Zak Designs offers the best of both worlds. Their products make mealtimes convenient and safe, and bring a dash of style to the table.
