As the primary trade show for independent retailers and manufacturers of juvenile products, ABC Kids Expo is growing as quickly as the children who use the products it showcases. With over 900 exhibitors, Expo’s October 2010 show in Las Vegas was testimony for the power of partnership that drove domestic and international attendance and fostered new business relationships. Among the numerous exhibitors whose innovative products intrigued The Giggle Guide® were Straw-Lution™, The Juno Company, Spuds, Inc., and ViveVita.
As the weather turns cold and little ones bundle up, kids are warming up to wearing fun faux fur and animal-inspired look-alikes that are cozy, practical and politically correct. The Giggle Guide® has hunted through the fashion kingdom to track down chilly-weather collections that feature durable and warm pieces that get kids’ imaginations roaring, including Two Flowers One Bear, Kyber Outerwear, and Bearington Bear. Take a look at the wintery wild side for kids this season, with inspired themes that coat children as baby elephants, leopards, bears, seals, dogs, cats and more! Let the fun fur fly!

When children discover there’s a day set aside to dress up like Shrek or a Disney Princess out in public and collect gallons of candy from strangers, it’s hardly a surprise that glorious day becomes every little monster’s favorite! Halloween often requires retailers to stock their shelves a bit more creatively than other celebrations, and The Giggle Guide® has found just the right mix from La Vie New York, International Playthings LLC, Surprise Balls, and Paper Magic Group to guarantee every trick-or-treater has a safe and spook-tacular time!
In fact, all of the young rats in Professor Perimeter’s class — a class designed to teach ‘bad’ rats to be more “normal,” — have the same pressing question. Josiah (a bright eyed aspiring painter), Sarah (a ballet dancer with grace down to the tip of her tail), and Priscilla (a singer with a voice far bigger than expected and who is particularly fond of bright scarves) all want to know, “Why am I bad?”
