Sean and Tracie Gildea realized they needed to take matters into their own hands when shopping for their baby boy’s room left them uninspired. Despite a diligent search, the couple was disappointed by the limited selection of children’s bedding they saw in stores. “Most of what we found was either dull or too sophisticated,” Sean recalls, “when a baby should be about being whimsical and fun.” And so, like the old saying goes, necessity truly is the mother of invention. The void the Gildeas found in the marketplace inspired the pair to launch Sozo, a charming collection of colorful clothes, blankets, sleepwear and accessories.

Now, transport that cultural tapestry back to the present and weave it into an uncommon line of feminine clothing for children. Such are the inspired visions for infants, little girls, and big girls as captured in children’s clothing from April Cornell.

Winter is fast approaching and with that comes the excitement of SNOW! Something about the delicacy and pureness of a fresh snowfall is captivating as it floats from the heavens and blankets the earth below. Children are especially taken with the phenomenon of snow and, from the first flake, long to touch it, roll around in it, and hurl it into the air! Yet not every child gets to experience snow, or at least not as often as they’d like. With Snow To Go®, children can celebrate the joy of snow all year long!

When Debbie Runge and her father received more greeting cards at a shared birthday party than they could keep, Debbie decided to invent a product that, unlike cards, could be paid forward and reused over time. That thrifty thought led her to create WebRappers, re-recordable 8” plush toys that can be customized with songs and personal greetings. Velcro on WebRappers allows gift givers to wrap the toys around presents to celebrate special occasions and milestone events. They can be wrapped around cribs, baskets, bottles and practically anything one can imagine!
