Every home needs some ambience; a way for the inhabitants to feel cozy, secure and happy. Aesthetic touches like blankets, pillows, throws and other accessories do more than just provide physical warmth and comfort; they add a distinctive look and help create the right vibe. They also provide a way for the residents to express their unique style sense and show appreciation for the things they love. Scene Weaver describes itself as a “feel-good” company that offers multiple collections with a little something for just about everyone. Pickled is a branch of Scene Weaver that offers lighthearted children’s room décor and clothing collections.
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!
If commercials are any indication, baby bath time is supposed to be a joyful bonding experience with sweet-smelling soaps and relaxing bald-headed massages. The reality for most parents is wishing for another four hands and an hour spent cleaning puddles of water from the bathroom floor. The creative minds behind Tubby Table experienced the latter with their active toddlers and worked out a solution to make bath time more fun with less mess.
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.
The ABC Spring Educational Conference will be held “Where Dreams Come True” at Disney World Resorts on May 20-22. The ABC annual spring event allows juvenile stores, manufacturers, reps and media to get to know more about each other and their industry. The juvenile industry has been built on dreams, and continues to serve and be inspired by families with new dreams. That’s why I asked several exhibitors these questions: “What are your dreams that have come true, or that you still have?” and “What dream product are you showing at the ABC spring trade show?” I received replies from Duux, MD Moms, Reflo, pello, and oogaa.
Three friends had two things in common, the desire to work together, and a shared passion for natural living. While brainstorming, they realized all their talents combined could create an all-natural skincare line. And thus, 3Girls Holistic was born.

The lines include: Skin Care, Aromatherapy, First Aid, Postpartum and For Kids.

Happy Earth Day! Initially started to call attention to the necessity of protecting the environment and natural resources, Earth Day has evolved into a celebration that highlights the grandeur of nature and the various ways that we can all pull together to make the world a better place. Of course, many children’s companies have strong environmental policies they practice every day of the year. Companies like Prince Lionheart, Simple Nature, BooginHead and Tiny Tater Tees are bringing useful products to families while helping to build a better world.
As a surgical nurse, Neeta Tvelil knew the amount of germs that linger on the bathroom floor, which is why whenever she’d see a towel one of her three boys had left on the floor wet, she would cringe. She knew there had to be a solution. With a few tweaks to a basic hand towel, she created the Tottels towel for tots. The product promotes good hygiene and responsibility by making it easy to keep the towel attached to the rack and off the floor.
