HALO® Innovations

Finger-pointing is okay in a child’s world when Hopscotch Kids™ non-toxic fingernail polish lets them crow, “Nailed it!” and point with satisfaction at perfectly colored and manicured nails on ten or twenty digits. Hopscotch Kids has solved the decades-old conflict between a little girl’s penchant for painted nails and her parents’ concern over toxic solvent-based nail polish. They’ve covered fingers and toes without offending the nose! The sister product, polish remover, is also safe and natural; made of water, tall oil fatty acids and alcohols (plant based), non-ionic surfactants, and organic buffers.

Satsuma, founded in 2007 by Jennifer Porter, is an eco-conscious baby apparel, soft goods and accessories that offers parents natural, healthy alternatives in everyday baby wear and bedding. The word “Satsuma” refers to a tangerine-like fruit available in Asia. The name fits the company well. It’s fresh, exotic, natural and just plain sweet! Jennifer was motivated to create the Satsuma brand because she realized that more and more parents wanted to outfit their babies in stylish, trendy gear, but also wanted to know exactly where those products came from and what went into the manufacturing process.

There’s More to “Holiday” Than Just December!

Traditionally in the children’s market, “Holiday” denotes an avalanche of must-have toys, as well as fancy dresses and festive sweaters emphasizing velvet shades of red and green for family portraits. In years past, buyers were expected to wrap up their holiday orders for fourth-quarter delivery by July. Now, with more stores placing orders closer to season, and retailers looking for every opportunity to entice customers to buy, Holiday has become a multi-month sales opportunity.
