There’s a new way to look at diaper bags. Up to now, no company had delved into the world of microbes (aka icky germs) or anti-stick coatings, but that’s changed due to this dynamic duo of new licensed diaper bags: Ju-Ju-Be has begun a collaboration with Hello Kitty, the iconic brand everyone adores. The new Kitty collection features signature diaper bag designs in a range of shapes with –– retailers take note –– a custom print; bow zipper pulls; and super-cute, functional hidden surprises such as embroidery details inside each bag. Invite shoppers to peer inside the bag to get a look at the “hidden” three apples, a nod to Hello Kitty who herself is three apples tall and weighs five apples.

Over thirty years ago, Becky Cannon asked herself how she could provide natural care both inside and out for her future family. She spent the next three years studying and teaching young children about natural foods in Japan. There she had her daughter Emi. After moving back to the States and preparing for the birth of her second daughter, Mari, she missed the unique baby products she discovered in Japan. Soon, Cannon started importing diaper covers from Japan to make them available for other parents. Today, Cannon and her daughters are the mother-daughter owners of i play.®, as they continue to focus on creating the best baby-friendly products.
Mothers would like nothing better than to carry an “It” bag that doubles as a diaper bag. From her styling and fashion experience, Cathryn A. Fisfis created an eponymous line that has style and taste. “Fashion is expensive; style doesn’t have to be” is the Cathryn A. Fisfis motto. Combining fashion with function, her bags have the aesthetic of a top-market handbag with the usability of a diaper bag. The Samantha model, with a cowhide body, lambskin bow and water repellant lining, has a wire frame opening at the top so it’s easy to locate whatever mom is looking for. The eleven pockets make it baby-friendly, while nickel detailing gives it a look of elegance.
It’s time for another crop of products proudly made in the U.S.A. Innovation has long been the benchmark of American products. Many American companies have designed products that put them ahead of the times, ensuring that their goods will impress prospective customers and securing their place in the business world. This fact is no less true for companies that produce products made for babies and children. Logan and Lenora, bZipt, theMINIclassy and Sweet Cottontail are all bringing something fresh and new to the world of children’s products.
Summer is here and it’s time to celebrate most of our American patriotic holidays. While there are solemn events to commemorate, the overall spirit is one of hope and happiness. The people who fought for freedom, built enterprises or became pioneers on this land didn’t just do it for themselves, but for the generations to come… the generation being born today. Companies like Kinsley Kouture, Liz and Roo, Baby Bits and Chibella are all examples of American entrepreneurship in action. So let’s light the sparklers, fire up the barbecue and get the party started!
One of the most surprising changes many new parents face is just how long it takes to leave the house. What used to be a quick ritual involving throwing on shoes and a jacket, grabbing your wallet and heading out becomes a juggling act featuring diapers, toys, blankets, wipes, snacks, and of course, the baby himself! Most moms agree that a good diaper bag is the first line of defense against frazzled mornings. Companies like Oemi Baby, Diapees & Wipees, JP Lizzy and Daddy & Co. offer diaper bags in a variety of styles and sizes, so that just about any mom or dad can find what they’re looking for.
