Responsible parents are concerned about the healthy physical and mental development of their children. By investing early in their children’s feet, via quality footwear, they can help support their kids from the ground up — for a lifetime! After all, healthy, happy feet get kids going in the morning and keep them moving though whatever life has in store for them day to day, and year to year. Throughout the formative first years, children never outgrow the need for new, properly sized footwear that is designed to promote healthy foot development.
At Pedoodles we make it our business to ensure growing little feet are surrounded by quality and comfort!

Wintertime brings special challenges for parents and kids. Dressing for a simple trek outside often ends up as an all-out hunt for the proper outerwear and accessories that are essential to keep tiny heads and hands warm.

Now, thanks to the resourceful, all-in-one design of RoozKidz! winter apparel, parents can abandon the struggle to keep those tiny articles in tow.

With inspiration drawn from Frank Sinatra’s carefree melody “Do-be-do-be-doo,” the trendy children’s clothing line ToobyDoo strives to challenge children “to be” as they grow up, instead of getting wrapped up in the “to do’s” in life. From this inspirational challenge, a clothing line has emerged that easily boasts being “high on style, easy on play.” ToobyDoo prides itself on providing high-end, preppy clothing pieces that embody playing and exploring. Simple, sophisticated designs are stylish, while keeping comfort and function in mind.
Go green… recycle… save the planet! No matter how you say it, taking care of Planet Earth is a shared responsibility and definitely a concept that must be passed on to children. Little Pickle Press is dedicated to this cause, with a mission to “help parents and educators cultivate conscious, responsible little people.” This includes teaching the importance and responsibility of being green and recycling. Little Pickle’s conservation efforts stand out in its various products — including posters and children’s books — and particularly shine through in the book, What Does It Mean To Be Green?
After all the Christmas shopping is done, the wrapping begins! Most of us traditionally surround each gift with tissue and a box, cut wrapping paper just the right size, fold here, tape there, and top with a name tag, ribbon, and bow. All that time and effort are quickly undone when Christmas morning frenzy makes the paper fly. Sadly, when the unwrapping is done, the bulk of packaging overflows trash bins and makes its way to the landfills. It seems like such a waste, literally! That’s exactly the sentiment Adrienne Johns experienced after a family Christmas a few years back, and thus ellaWrap was created.
