With Father’s Day quickly approaching on June 20th, The Giggle Guide® has gathered a mountain of manly goodies for show and sell!

“You have a gifted imagination,” is a praise-worthy complement that young children used to hear a lot from teachers and parents. Before the current home computer, video gaming, and iPod revolution, generations of kids were inspired by dawn-to-dusk outdoor neighborhood adventures and creative play with blocks, models, “army” men, tea parties, crafts and board games. Enthusiastic about these “good ole’ days” of playtime powered by active imaginations, Lisa Pearce and Wendy Scarbrough, both kids at heart, opened their Gifted Imaginations store last year. The store is a kid’s dream playroom filled with traditional wooden toys, puzzles, games and more.

Johnny told me that he likes the selection of boys’ suits Premier Kids has to offer.
We are so thrilled that our dear friends at Earnshaw’s Magazine has featured No Slippy Hair Clippy’s Clipettes in their April/May 2010 issue!
Clipettes is our newest line of mini clips. They may be adorably small in size, but we definitely did not scrimp on quality for these babies! Each mini clip (1 3/4-inch) is fully lined in grosgrain, including the pinch area. This ensures that you still get our promise of a non-slip clip )
Plus, they come in lovely designs (I’m loving the leopard and zebra prints!) and retail at only $2.95.
The Giggle Guide® asked 26 moms “What is one thing you think manufacturers of children’s products should know or consider changing? Our moms stood united on their soap boxes to broadcast their chief concerns for quality, durability and safety in children’s products. Even though The Giggle Guide® knows that most manufacturers in the children’s business share the same concerns, hearing the moms’ insightful and potent message is paramount.
The Treehouse Showroom traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada this week and visits “Kids Kastle” at Caesars Palace.

The store was filled with tutus, accessories, and designer brands, great job buyers! The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the brands they carry, and the check out process was a breeze.

Lisa Malcic’s seven-year-old son may have some explaining to do when, down the road, his friends discover he was both the inspiration behind, and model for, the revolutionary Pee-pee Teepee.
“My poor son, he’ll have to have Pee-pee Teepee therapy,” joked Malcic, who created the amusing spout guard about seven years ago in response to the diaper-changing dilemma encountered by many parents of newborn boys. Every time Malcic and her husband took off their son’s diaper, he immediately peed on them before they could get the next one on.
The religious ceremonies of an infant christening, baptism, blessing, bris, or naming ceremony are traditional rites of spiritual initiation for baby, and shared celebrations for families. Baby’s white gown symbolizes purity, joy and new life, and is often treasured and saved as a family heirloom. In 1984, Little Thing Mean a Lot founder, Cindy Pack, recognized the importance of providing a touch of grace and beauty in the apparel that is an important part of a baby’s special religious occasions.
