Produced four times a year, the ENK International Children’s Club in NYC in early March was a great success and positive spirits ran high. Both Stanley Kaye, Show Director for the Children’s Club, and Elyse Kroll, chairwoman and founder of ENK International, took it as a sign that the market is “bouncing back.” Floor traffic was steady and the variety of sellers both nationally and globally offered a lot to consider. March’s event included a runway fashion show sponsored by Vogue Bambini, with the models sporting back-to-school trends. The show introduced many newer players including: Malibu Sugar, Babysoy, Knitoes & Co., and Tuff Cookie.
All over the world, companies create products that make children’s lives more convenient, enriching, and fun. When companies come together in one place to display their best, they create a symbiotic buying experience for children’s retailers. Playtime New York is a trade show that presents a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere where buyers can get up close and personal with mainly European-based or inspired apparel, gifts and accessories. In March, Playtime New York unveiled unique and useful offerings from both established and emerging stars including jack & salma, kicokids, Sono Vaso, Noel France S.A.S. and Easy Peasy Shoes.
The children’s industry today moves at a feverish pace. Our endeavor to stay on top of all the latest trends keeps The Giggle Guide® in perpetual motion. Maybe that’s why we’re finding the new lines for autumn so refreshing! After attending recent trade events across the country, it appears that Fall 2011 fashions are reminiscent of a simpler time. Retailers have welcomed back-to-basics for back-to-school, with traditional clothing and quality construction made to last. Organic fabrics satisfy the desire for sustainability without sacrificing style, and beautifully muted tones provide a warm color palette. Fall for new fashions from Pale Cloud, Little Esop, Blu Pony Vintage, and Kiwi Industries.
Parents of children with allergies, or sensitivities to certain foods or substances, must stay vigilant. They have to read labels, eliminate triggering products, inform teachers and caregivers, and find acceptable alternatives whenever possible. Unfortunately, allergy triggers can sometimes show up in unexpected places. For example, some parents are dismayed to find that the formula for the leading children’s modeling dough is wheat-based. A new find is Soy-Yer Dough, a wheat-free modeling dough that more kids can enjoy!
KIDShow Las Vegas, held in mid-February at Bally’s, kicked the Fall 2011 buying season into high gear with a wide assortment of new and brand-name fashions, accessories and gifts. Buyers’ spirits were soaring and orders were written with anticipation of good things to come. Many loyal KIDShow exhibitors praised the event as “their best showing in years!” Hopes were high for the Fall season and beyond. New to KIDShow, Pixie Girl, SCKC and Urban Sunday caught The Giggle Guide’s attention for their interesting collections, backed by the passion and professionalism of the brands’ exhibitors.

Woolly Boo® was born in 2009 when Selma Avdicevic and her mother Vahida Subasic were not able to find sophisticated and luxurious crib-size bedding that was made of natural materials, like organic wool and cotton. So, they created their own line of crib mattress pads, crib bumper pads, toddler pillows, toddler comforters, and infant wearable blankets from 100% organic wool filler and 100% natural cotton ticking. Woolly Boo® has also introduced a line of travel pillows, which combines the same quality and sophisticated style as the sleep products.
For children, bath time brings a splash of good clean fun followed by a warm snuggle in a bath towel. Many infant towels are hooded and made from extra soft cotton for babies’ tender skin. As youngsters transition from infant to toddler, the thirst continues for fun and cozy towels. Toddlers still have sensitive skin, but it’s more difficult for parents to find hooded, soft towels that are big enough to wrap around their growing kids. Instead, they settle for adult-sized towels that can chafe and irritate. Breganwood Organics soaks up the sales with a collection of super soft, interchangeable hooded towels for children.
