There’s no bigger joy than holding a new healthy baby in your arms. Two moms who know that joy founded Baby Hero, a line of organic baby and toddler clothing that’s gentle enough for soft baby skin, but strong enough to handle the snuggles and the joys of growing and playing. It also supports mothers who may not have access to information and care needed to keep those babies in our world. Three million babies die each year in their first month of life and Baby Hero is dedicated to a “Giving Model.” Each purchase from Baby Hero funds a Neonatal Survival Kit for a mother and her baby in a disadvantaged community.

Playing outside in the sun is great, but rainy day fun has a charm all its own. Most kids have fond memories of days spent splashing through puddles, twirling umbrellas, and catching raindrops on their tongues. However, no matter how much fun playing in the puddles may be, the right gear is necessary. Butler Boot was founded to ensure that every puddle hop is a happy one. The company makes bold, bright rain boots that are easy and convenient to wear. Instead of the regular rain boot that’s worn in place of shoes, Butler draws on the design of traditional galoshes that fit over the shoe.

There’s very little funny about some of the cold winter temperatures around the world, but it’s all good in the hood if you have fun with your outwear. Rasta Imposta is the real deal when it comes to costumes and accessories for kids of all ages and their Ha Ha Hoodies are sure to get laughs from even the most embittered winter survivor. These zip-up hoodies are made to be warm and can be used as costumes or just conversation starters throughout the year. Your older customers will smile with nostalgia when they find out Rasta Imposta began over 20 years ago when Robert Berman created the Original Rasta Hat in the 90s.

After some sun, who doesn’t want to take a refreshing dip and take in the underwater sights? Those using a traditional snorkel often end up disappointed with foggy goggles they have to continually clear, missing out on time beneath the surface.

This personal body board is fully equipped with anti-fog goggles built right at the top of the board so riders of all ages can get a wider field of vision with no cloudiness. With bodacious buoyancy and sensational stability, the Snorkelboard is easy to paddle and doesn’t require lessons or advanced skills.

Skateboards and swings might seem more familiar to your customers, but classics have been tossed firmly into this century at Flexdex with lighted boards, and at Spring Swings with swings, ziplines and hang bars to encourage creative outdoor play. Help kids get fit in the most fun ways with new outdoor adventures.
