Beba Bean began its business by solving a piddly diapering problem parents of boys know all too well — avoiding getting showered by the fountain of youth! After the birth of her second child, Alex, Lisa Malcic noticed that no product existed to prevent wee willie’s weeing all over her and her husband, Peter. Thus, she was inspired to create the Pee-pee Teepee™, the topper that conveniently contains old faithful’s trouble that starts with a “P”!
Spring 2011 comes from inspirations of fabric,monkeys, and requests from my daughter for full, “round and round” skirts and dresses. The skirts are cute alone or with a petticoat or tutu underneath for more fullness. Peaceful monkeys wear shades, give signs of peace, and spin round and round in hula hoops. They try to catch butterflies but catch laughs and smiles instead.
Where I am the weather is heating up and approaching one hundred. So am I making swimwear or short outfits for little monkeys to wear in the sun? Well, what we are making lots of are Santa Monkeys and Angel Monkeys. Hopefully tey are on your list of things you would like to see under someone’s tree, or to see them wear during the holidays.
When top fashion designers look for creative inspiration, there is no place more vibrant and filled with unique patterns than the animal kingdom. Zebras, leopards, cheetahs, and tigers sport showy spots, stripes and tons of other fun patterns. Eye-catching animal prints have long been reflected in fashion, but today’s savvy designers offer plenty of faux fur designs, so animal lovers can proudly don their favorite animals’ colors. cachcach, Biscotti and Corky & Company have perfectly captured the stunning style of nature’s critters, in animal-activist approved fabrics, faux furs and wild trims, that have all the stylish kids taking a walk on the wild side!
As the owner of No Slippy Hair Clippy ®, Annie Salyer is immersed in all things girly — bows, ribbons, flowers, barrettes, and fabric. But this mother of two boys isn’t complaining. “Honestly, I think most girls love hair accessories,” she says. “I grew up with four sisters, and we were always putting clips, ribbons and bows in our hair. I definitely have more of a passion now, especially after serving as the sole Hair Clippy designer the past six years.”

Cooking together has been a recipe for bonding and memory making with children for generations. Kids love stirring it up with Mom, Dad and Grandma. In addition to getting to “lick the spoon,” children learn about healthy ingredients, simple math, flavorful spices and basic cooking skills. However, as any good chef knows, cooking can make a fine mess! Aprons are therefore an essential “uniform” in the kitchen. Colorful aprons from Art•Style•Design Living can make kids (and their assistants) look and feel like real chefs!
