Shane Farkas and Alex Rabinovich are showing the world what it means to have a big heart! In 2009, they traveled to Southeast Asia to find a fabric manufacturer for a new children’s clothing line that they were developing. Little did they know that their hearts would be forever changed! During their trip, Shane and Alex repeatedly met underprivileged children suffering from lack of proper nutrition and health-care. They decided that there was no better way to make a difference in needy children’s lives than to create a company, Big Heart Baby, that would continually and generously give back.

An important aspect of being a responsible children’s retailer is educating customers about modern safety concerns and the related improvements that have been made to products. Bisphenol-A (BPA), a once widely-used plasticizer in baby bottles, plastic bottles, food can linings and microwavable dishes, has recently been linked to serious health problems. Reassure your customers that there are innovative, BPA-free products available, like these from Silikids, Vapur and Base Brands, that they can feel secure about using for their children and themselves. Here’s a toast to good news!
