The Treehouse Showroom traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada this week and visits “Kids Kastle” at Caesars Palace.
“Kids Kastle” was booming with customers flowing in and out. Bags filled, and smiling customers excited about the purchases they’d made. 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.
Bubbly children sporting bright, brilliant colors and dazzling fabrics are like rays of sunshine, generating energy and contagious, electrifying smiles. No one knows this chain reaction better than Brooklyn-based children’s apparel designer, Jenny Kim, who loves to mix and match colorful fabrics and prints in her fashion makeover of overalls for infants and toddlers. Her spirited Overall Baby crackles with snappy style and overall originality! Overall Baby has got it all goin’ on with bright colors and funky-fun fabrics, combined with the traditional comfort and long-lasting durability of dungarees.
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.

“I can do it all by myself!” marks prideful milestones as preschoolers gradually learn to accomplish daily tasks without parental help. One of these “I’m-a-big-kid” moments is when boys and girls learn to dress themselves. From keeping their pants off the ground to shirt buttoning 101 and tying shoelaces, all kids have to master these head-to-toe tasks. Recognizing that this is no small feat, EZ-SOX® has invented training socks that sport dandy straps at the top, enabling children to easily “handle” the sock pull-up event!
