Appreciation for American-made products is all around us. As the economy recovers, more entrepreneurs are taking advantage of the benefits of doing business here at home. You can see them at every trade show and market, bringing their innovation and creativity to wholesalers. Retailers are realizing the impact of a “Made in the U.S.A.” stamp. When customers buy American, they can be confident that they’re purchasing a product that is manufactured to high standards in responsibility to the environment, treatment of employees and reliability of delivery. The Giggle Guide® presents another selection of these products, including Raindrops, Tidy Tots Diapers, Pure Play Toys and AXL Brand.
One of the biggest problems with children being outside during inclement weather is the damp. When it rains, socks, the bottoms of trousers, and the edges of sleeves typically all suffer, leaving school-aged children feeling uncomfortable throughout the day. Companies that create outdoor gear with an eye on breathability and functionality earn customer loyalty. Belgian powerhouse Ducksday has built strong brand recognition in Europe. The company is known for its ability to help kids shrug off dreary days and keep the fun rolling when the snow falls. Now it is making a name Stateside with stunning results.

Do your customers think that buying goods made in the U.S.A. is only a slogan? In truth, it means a great deal and here are some solid facts to mention as you proudly display clothes and accessories for kids from Lucy & Leo, Stinky McGee, Cavelle Kids and Stoney Clover Land — all companies that proudly produce their goods in the United States. When goods are made overseas, they often don’t meet strict U.S. standards. Furthermore, workers toiling in poor working conditions may make them. Buying American-made products supports more than just American manufacturers — it also helps support our workers, safe working conditions, and child labor laws.
Blankets for babies and children do much more than provide warmth and decoration; these cozy items often become treasured keepsakes that are passed down from generation to generation. Of course, if a blanket is going to enjoy heirloom status, it should meet certain criteria. First, it should be unique. A mass-produced discount store blanket can definitely hold emotional value, and it’s often the child’s choice of favorite “blankie” that stands the test of time, but most parents would prefer that a special blanket be aesthetically pleasing and well-made. Naaya by Moonlight creates a luxury collection of child’s quilts created to last a lifetime.
Ask any kid what their favorite time of year is, and you will likely hear “summer!” The weather is good, school is out, there are friends to see and family fun to enjoy.

Get ready to take a tour of some of the brands making the coolest summer clothing and accessories for kids, including Flik Flops, Andy & Evan, BSkinz and Koko-Nut Kids. From flashy flip-flops and fashions for little gentlemen to fair trade Batik, the possibilities are as diverse and fun as the sights you’ll see on any summer road trip.

Bike riding forms a cornerstone in the memory, not only as a fun way to break free, but also as a rite of passage. Companies that capitalize on that desire understand that they are delivering more than just a bike or accessory; they are fulfilling part of a customer’s dream. KaZAM brings extra sturdy bikes to kids, while Yedoo keeps everyone in the family on wheels with their bikes and scooters.
