Fall is vivid – everything is enhanced from the yellow, orange and red leaves falling on lawns to smoky smells wafting through the air. The season also brings cooler weather, and as parents get their children’s back-to-school clothing out of storage, they often discover that the kids have outgrown last year’s outfits and jackets. As the Fall 2010 wholesale buying season winds down, springtime gives retailers a last chance to plan ahead and be prepared for the “windfall” of new children’s apparel next autumn. Here are a few Fall 2010 favorites The Giggle Guide® is falling for from Attitude Pie, Alpha Industries, Llum, and Desigual.
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s son Zuma is wearing his big brother Kingston’s hand-me-downs! Good thing they’re the ever-adorable BabyLegs® - the very same ones we sent in Kingston’s Big Brother Basket way back in the summer of 2008. We saw the whole family on the way to a party in Malibu in the pages of OK!, People, and Us Weekly this week – it’s their very own Easter Parade!
Henderson, NV (April 2010) - Kids nationwide are celebrating the launch of pediped® footwear’s Spring/Summer 2010 line of machine washable footwear. Thanks to this welcomed innovation, they now have the freedom to jump in any puddle that catches their attention, practice their running long jump until it’s medal-worthy and slip-slide through the mud on the way home from school. These machine washable shoes for kids 2-5 years of age will remain looking new as they are super-easy to clean.
Did I mention I don’t really miss the end of my pinkie that my Dad nicked off while clipping my nails as an infant? Oh, no, I didn’t? That’s because I DO MISS IT!

Check out our brand spanking (no necessary) new Organic Bamboo Baby Scratch Mittens ($8/pair). These little gems fashioned with an adorable gros grain ribbon tab for easy on/off will keep baby’s gnarly nails from inflicting permanent damage on that soft, fragile little skin.
Friends and fellow dog lovers Sandi Hochman and Jonathan Cathey got together to form Lucky Puppy to celebrate the love people have for “man’s best friend” by offering apparel for kids and folks who believe, like Charlie Brown, that happiness is a warm puppy. The “dog”-tag line for Lucky Puppy says it all — “Nothing But Cute.” Sandi Hochman shares with The Giggle Guide® her inspiration to start the lifestyle store that has become a well-known brand. Lucky Puppy is a fitting name, as the company actively helps to find new families for homeless dogs.

Research indicates that babies who are carried cry less, which is only one of the benefits that have made baby wearing a popular way to comfort, cuddle, and bond with a little one. Baby is kept safely close and snuggled, while parents enjoy both a content infant and hands-free convenience. There are many styles of babywearing carriers on the market, available in a wide variety of fashions, functions and price points, including these popular choices from Wrap n’ Wear, Rockin’ Baby Sling, Kemby, The Hippie, The Peanut Shell, Sakura Bloom, Baby K’tan, Beco Baby Carrier and kokopax.
The Giggle Guide® received the following public announcement from a concerned group of businesses who manufacture baby slings and carriers. Given the recent CPSC government warning on baby carriers and the Consumers Union’s concerns about “bag-style” carriers, the companies providing the following information are taking a stand to help educate the public on the differences between safe and unsafe baby carriers.
What comes to mind when someone mentions a “Big Brother” or “Big Sister” t-shirt? How about a basic white t-shirt with bold lettering stating “I’m a Big Sister!” or “I’m a Big Brother!” These t-shirts grace gift shops across the nation leaving Moms, Aunts and Grandmothers everywhere with little selection.
