In the consumer market, every book is judged by its cover and every product is judged by its packaging. Consumers quickly become accustomed to labels and brand identity, so new products and brands rely on shelf-sell packaging to catch the eye of shoppers. Plain and uninteresting packaging could be costing you significant sales. Packaging from Edoche, Baby Aspen, Huggy Bunny and Bloomers Baby are a few of the many examples in the children’s market which demonstrate that when the package grabs attention, the sale is more certain to follow.
Young children display innocence, purity and simplicity. With their funny thoughts and inspiring insights they can teach us about life in their own easy-going way. Bente Nilssen, the designer of FROSK wear, a Texas-based children’s clothing brand, believes in the wonder of children and makes clothes that reflect their inner beauty. Pulling inspiration from nature, each piece creates a timeless quality without fancy designs that may distract from the most important element — the child who’s wearing it.
“Chicago, Chicago, I’ll show you around…” Those song lyrics hit the right note, because this January’s Chicago Market: Living and Giving® gift and home show will lead you through floor after floor of vendors offering fine products — many making their 2011 debut at the show. Unlike those song lyrics, there will be no mention of “betting your bottom dollar,” because the products presented are sure winners for retailers and consumers! Among the juvenile product manufacturers you can meet at the show, watch for Babalu, Inc., Little Toader, Stephan Baby, and Four Peas.

Ensuring the little ones from harmful UVA and UVB rays is our priority. That’s why Seasons UV is the industry leader in testing: in fact, we test our entire product line twice to ensure it provides maximum UPF protection.
Did you know that most children rack up between 50% and 80% of their lifetime sun exposure before age 18? A cotton T-Shirt has only about 5 UPF, that is like putting a 5 SPF sunscreen on your child…not enough. Seasons UV apparel is 50++UPF, it is like sunscreen that does not wear off.

Shoe Money was “born” March of 2007. Lori Riley made gifts for her mommy friends and they loved them and asked for more. She realized that she could sew, design and create around her children’s schedules and have a little money on the side (“shoe money”) for her favorite hobby: shoe shopping!
