Options are huge and include the drapey blanket cardigan in charcoal or cream that makes a perfect layer for any day. A large wooden button closes at the neck.

“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.

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.
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’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.

SwaddleDesigns, Cuski, Kyte Baby and HALO Innovations all produce excellent products that make swaddling easier, safer and more stylish.
