Take an owl, elephant or bird and turn it into a decorative throw pillow that would brighten the corner of any room. These and lots more spring from the workshop of decaf plush, a line of colorful, modern appliquéd floor cushions, pillows, and kids’ clothing made of ultra-soft velveteen, denim, and cotton. decaf plus designs are bright, animated and real stand-outs. Airplanes, a bird on a branch and an elephant add zing to a classic a-line dress in seersucker or 21 wale lightweight corduroy that can be paired with a tee for cooler days. Tees come in a wide range of sizes in designs like whales and fishes, doe a deer, mushrooms and berries.

Furnishings and decorative accessories for kids were dominated by boring wood stains and shades of dull. That was then. Now there are several manufacturers that offer good looking, quality crafted products that fit into a variety of trend-driven lifestyle decors. Whether a customer lives in a contemporary home, a traditional house or a French Provincial setting, there are designs that blend in harmoniously. Here are some examples of new designs from Bratt Décor, Muralistick, indoTreasures, and SweetSeat.

Clothes that are made in the United States occupy a special place in our hearts and a vital one in our economy. The strength of American manufacturing carries implications for the entire economy, for national security, and for the well-being of Americans. When you stock products that bear the “Made in the U.S.A.” label, you show that you buy into this concept. You are doing your part to keep your country strong. These companies, among others, subscribe to the ethos of American pride — they proudly make their goods on our shores, with our workers: Susanne Lively Designs, CiCi & Ryann, Owl’s and Bat’s, Hankie Babies and Nay et al, Inc..

Sometimes it’s the simplest, most basic toys that bring the most fun and delight. With all the electronic games and battery-operated gadgets available today, a kid sometimes finds it nice to reach for a toy that can be appreciated for its cuddle factor alone. Piggy Wiggies — soft, cute pig-themed collectible toys — definitely fill that need. Piggy Wiggies are available as full-sized toys or mini key chains. The impulse-buy appeal comes from the whimsical, folk-art-inspired designs; each pig has its own unique appearance, with soft fabric ears and “nostrils” made of painted wooden craft flowers.

In today’s eco-conscious climate, many parents look for innovative ways to bolster kids’ natural curiosity and inspire them to think about others and the environment around them. It was this desire that led Phoebe Hayman to create Seedling, a company that creates kits which encourage kids to use their imaginations and explore the world… naturally!
