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. Out of the fog came a bright idea when Murray W. Scott decided to clear the way for the Snorkelboard. 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.
Some kids don’t want to participate in organized sports, they want to live on the edge. And for them there’s a whole world of adventure sports that can be set up right at home. Take for example, slacklining. GIBBON and Slackline Industries pioneered slacklining and continue to offer cutting-edge accessories. 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.
A nursery often transforms over the baby’s early years as his or her unique tastes and preferences begin to emerge. Parents who had planned for a princess who loves pink may soon find out they have a tomboy who adores baseball, or vice versa. Whatever the case may be, moms and dads usually want to furnish their little ones’ rooms with all the necessities and flourishes that create a safe, attractive and mentally stimulating environment. KidKraft, Design Skin, Funny Friends, and Judith Raye all offer great products to make a room into a child’s personalized cozy kingdom.

What’s one thing on a parent’s mind when they go to the beach? Sun protection, of course. And as convenient as hats are, unless that hat fits perfectly, it will barely block the sun or stay on a tot’s head. Introduce some Grom Squad hats into the mix. These dome covers are made to fit multiple head shapes from six months to five years old, and come in several style options. On-trend, fun designs make kids want to wear them, giving parents peace of mind during outdoor activities. Made of a durable material blend, each hat can withstand even the most radical of sports (as well as intense wash cycles).
Whether there’s a tropical vacation on the calendar, or a simple desire for escape, it’s not unusual for folks to take a trip to the local mall or boutique – or to browse the ‘net – for the latest beachwear. Surfing culture has contributed a great deal to modern swimwear, particularly among children’s wear designers. Kids are active, adventurous, and energetic, so they often need beach clothing that’s strong and durable. Kids are style-conscious, and want their clothing to project their laid-back cool. For all these reasons, surf-wear companies like Hang Ten Gold, M.N. Bird Co., Coral & Reef Beachwear, and Sand Dollar are all great choices for the little kahuna.

Experience is a wonderful thing to have if you’re starting a business endeavor, but sometimes ambition, intuition, and enthusiasm can go a long way. The team at 4funkyflavours knows this to be true. The Dutch company started out as an adventure in creativity and imagination. Although the founders didn’t have multiple years in the industry or huge fashion portfolios, they did have a vision for the kind of clothing they wanted to offer customers. They wanted to create clothing that embodied the diverse character traits and moods of children; one that would inspire kids to dress the way they felt and honor their developing sense of style.

Tragedy struck the Leonard family in 2005 when Monica endured a stillbirth of her daughter Molly. As a pediatric nurse, she knew she had done “everything right” in her pregnancy. Leonard started to research and found a study done on cord blood which identified over 120 toxins found in newborn baby cord blood. These toxins are passed through several generations and originate in many chemicals found in homes. Leonard said, “It was a starting point for me, I began doing research and finding out what products were safe, and what products were not.” Thus she created Molly’s Suds, an all-natural, toxin-free detergent line.

Today’s kids are practically born attached to an electronic product. As they grow, there are several electronic devices in use as tots watch movies on tablets, listen to music on their MP3 players, and do homework on a computer. To make these activities work, the key ingredient is earbuds which, like socks in the wash, are always MIA. Thanks to Education Outdoors, there is a solution. It’s Pet Pods: cute little stuffed animals that arrive with a set of earbuds tucked into the back of each animal and secured with a Velcro closure. Pet Pods come in woodland animal designs, including a bald eagle, black bear, beaver, buck, fawn and moose.
