Kids are prone to nightmares and terrors, making it hard for them to either fall asleep or stay in a restful state. A lack of deep, restful sleep can lead to all sorts of health issues. How can parents help their children — and others less fortunate than themselves — enjoy a more restful sleep? SolPals, a company that develops solar-powered nightlights, not only harnesses the energy of the sun in a fun way for children, but also donates to those less fortunate

Even after a toddler is comfortable using the toilet, accidents happen. Remember that potty training is a complex skill in which a youngster has to both make and understand connections between their body and that big, porcelain throne. We have found that items from vendors, including Intelligent Potty, Clouds and Stars, Earth Friendly Products and Tots on Mars all help make toilet training a little easier. Parents appreciate having a range of helpful merchandise available to smooth the road to freedom from diapers.

Kids love to crawl, squiggle and draw on the floor. Carpeted floors seem like they would be safer places for babies and tots, but the number of tiny objects kids always find is shocking. Hardwood or laminate flooring is a particular stressor for parents. After all, one hard fall could mean anything from a long crying bout to a trip to the hospital. The best way to help families with their floor-lovers is to provide a comfortable landing pad that is not only easy to clean (always a big seller for families), but also attractive to kids. Dwinguler offers a solution.

Sunblock has become a family essential for every day, all year ‘round. Kids often make putting it on a battle, hating the feel of cold spray or greasy cream. Because actress Anne Heche had so many skirmishes over sun protection with her own young sons, she decided there had to be a less stressful, happier way to get the essential stuff on her family. Heche partnered with the founders of La Bella Donna to come up with Tickle Time Sunblock, a mineral, brush-on sunblock that is especially formulated for kids — the first of its kind!

Why? Because people want a safe alternative to piercing.

Since when? Mom created in 2009, launched in 2010

The inspiration for Fohawx was a seven-year-old boy named Alex who refused to wear his bike helmet because it wasn’t “cool.” In an attempt to make the helmet hip, his crafty sister Maya took the helmet to embellish it a bit. When she returned the helmet it had tissue paper glued to it, creating a faux Mohawk and dredlocks. Alex thought it was definitely rad and had no problem wearing it. The experience inspired mom Jocelyn Fine to begin experimenting with prototypes that eventually became Fohawx, a unique line of decorative appliqués for bike helmets.

Some parents take it for granted that they can go into a toy store and buy whatever their child wants. Parents of special needs children know it’s never that easy, and retailers who carry toys and clothing for their child’s specific needs can foster a valuable customer relationship to last a lifetime. A few examples of all-inclusive products include Pocket Frenz for children who need something small and tangible to get them through the day; Fun and Function toys, games and apparel; Soft Clothing’s seamless, tagless apparel for children who find regular clothes irritating; and WorryWoos for children who have trouble processing emotions.
