The Biz

I want something cute” is the mantra of customers who are shopping for the little girls in their lives. Sugar and spice is very nice, especially when it comes in the form of comfortable clothes with appeal to make them fresh for the seasons ahead. Smart retailers seek fine detailing and easy-to-wear fabrics for summer, along with sweet style and original looks. Little ones are cute from the get-go, so what they wear should enhance their appeal as do the collections from Lali, Zara Terez, Posh and PAZ Rodriguez. Much of this merch has an international flavor, proving that “cute” when applied to tots is universal.

Babies have a tendency to chew on anything and everything. Since they spend so much time in their crib, the railing makes for a tempting teething tool. But some baby furniture and toys are made with harmful chemicals, linking to some seriously scary side effects. At Babee Talk, only organic, high-quality materials are used in its collection of organic bedding and toys. Let baby chew these products as they are all safe plus non-harmful to the environment too. Babee Talk is a company that puts children’s safety first and has a unique marketing strategy, making its products a great choice for parents and store owners.

In general, kids’ accessories are the same basic items as those for adults. While they may take different shapes, styles and colors when marketed to kids, they are still hats, scarves, gloves, socks, etc. Now, there’s a new trendy fashion accessory meant just for babies and kids: knee pads. While knee pads have long been worn in sports like skateboarding, rollerblading, and soccer, they have not evolved into a fashionable version until fairly recently. Crazy Zebra is a brand that brings customers a selection of cool, stylish knee pads.

There’s something about European kids’ fashion sense that makes them extra cute. The boys look put together while they play with friends, as if they were born chic. Italy especially sets the bar high by blending style and function with children’s wear that goes from playground fun to dinner with the family seamlessly, and Ciao Marco Classico Italian style is no exception. This clothing line, inspired by the designer’s family trip to Italy, shows how boys can look put together without being uncomfortable. Boys will want to wear the fun, bright prints while parents will love the refined style.

Road trips are hard enough, with all the packing and planning and getting the kids into the car. The last thing any parent wants to fiddle with is the floppy seat belt buckle. Let’s face it –– backseat buckles are a burden! They move around, get stuck in seat pockets and get wedged under bulky boosters. Parents no longer need to be Olympic gymnasts to get kids in the car. A mom of three, Meghan Khaitan designed MyBuckleMate to lock into place around a car’s backseat buckle bases to keep them firmly propped up. With this product, reaching and putting the seat belt on with one hand is a snap!

It wasn’t too long ago when children’s television and family sitcoms were full of teachable moments. Nearly every episode featured the characters encountering a situation that required them to make a moral or ethical decision of some kind. Soon, those lessons cloaked in humor faded out and “very special episodes” became a trope associated with the past. The new generations of kids were thought to be too savvy to be preached to; they wanted sarcasm, attitude, and chaotic comedy. But is that what kids really need? The Principles of Our World is a book series designed to help children develop a strong sense of character and ethics.

It’s not easy for babies to adjust to the bright lights, loud sounds and new smells of the outside world after having lived for 9 months in the warmth and safety of the womb. Swaddling can work wonders to keep a baby relaxed and happy. It allows babies to sleep securely on their backs, protects them from scratching their faces, and helps reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) by eliminating the need for loose blankets. SwaddleDesigns, Cuski, Kyte Baby and HALO Innovations all produce excellent products that make swaddling easier, safer and more stylish.
