I just finished attending my third Licensing Expo at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas. I WROTE THIS BLOG in 2009. At this year’s event, I saw more than ever that whatever was old is new - or reimagined - again. So … I thought I would rerun these thoughts. Only thing maybe changed is popularity of Jonas Brothers? What licensed characters do you remember from childhood?
Got me thinking of the licensed characters of my childhood, and those that came and went during the “licensing years” of my three children over 20 years ago.
At Happy Heinys, we know from our family’s experience just how important it is to protect the smallest and most vulnerable babies from the minute they are born. After experiencing first hand the stress, anguish, fear and finally the absolute happiness of the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) I admit that as happy as we were to finally bring our little baby girl home we were also terrified! She had “coded” several times while in the hospital, so the realistic fear of that happening at home was tremendous.
The latest Baby & Kids “Look Book” features No Slippy Hair Clippy®’s Paisley Glitter BabyBow®, a very special bit of sparkle that’ll be perfect for the holidays.
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale were twirling in a teacup in Us Weekly (7/26/10) and OK! Magazine (7/26/10), enjoying a day at Disneyland with their sons Zuma and Kingston. Zuma’s red and white striped BabyLegs® were the perfect complement to his Mickey Mouse ears, proving once again that this family knows how to have fun with fashion!

Sugar Babies, is a Specialty Shoppe that carries the best quality toys, gifts, shoes, clothing and accessories.

Our first Baby Shop Hop (www.babyshophop.com) is due September 1, 2010, but our newest event wouldn’t be complete without a chance to give back to the community that makes our Shop Hops possible! For each logo found and clicked on during the Baby Shop Hop we will make a donation to a charity.
Which charity, you ask? That’s for YOU to help us decide. Starting June 1, Shop Hop Productions launched their “Charity Select” contest.
“I’m Defined” designs NEW from Light of Mine! Our “sweet” take on the “chic” tattoo look along with our inspiring sentiments have been a favorite among buyers ever since we first started our children’s apparel line.

Choose from six new images for boys and girls, all with beautiful new colors and lots of sincere sentiments. Spread the word!
I’ve always thought bangs are cute. So I had my hair cut to have bangs on them. Then it turns out my forehead doesn’t think they’re so cute after all. My skin is too picky with my hair styles, I tell you. Somehow, it abhors any contact with my hair! One wrong move and boom: major breakouts. The breakout that developed quickly on my forehead was a pretty clear sign to me that it’s time to do some damage control. But then there’s not much I can do but to wait for the bangs to grow out. And boy, do they take time to grow out…
I find it so precious how little girls can get their dads weak-kneed in adoration for them, especially if these dads openly admit it! Last time, we talked about how Jude Law’s will was broken by his little girl.
This time, it’s Greg Kinnear, who grew up with a brood of active boys but ironically ended up with three lovely girls. It’s endearing how he is already preparing himself to wait on the porch with a shotgun for when little six-month-old Kate starts dating! He recently shared with People.com:
