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.

While others may spend their 2011 Valentine’s Day exchanging roses, cards, and chocolates, or sharing a romantic plate of spaghetti, many of us in the juvenile product industry will be celebrating in a rather different fashion. KidShow at Bally’s in Las Vegas kicks off on Valentine’s Day through February 16th. Exhibitors include top brands, including le top, Vitamins, pediped, Posh, See Kai Run, Wee Ones, Kissy Kissy and a lot more.

Decorating a baby’s nursery is a project filled with possibilities that adds to the excitement and anticipation of the child’s arrival. Paint, window treatments and art on the walls are meant to provide babies with an uplifting environment including plenty of colors and images to keep them entertained. However, accidents can happen, and pretty decorations may pose a danger if they are too easily pulled off the wall by an admiring, young art lover. Luckily, there’s a safe and fun alternative to wood and plastic decorations: soft wall décor by Loveable Creations.
“Made in the USA” is a declaration stamped on goods made in America — a hallmark that instills pride in the heart of the manufacturer and confidence in the mind of the consumer… and so it should, because turning a product over in our hands to reveal the “Made in the USA” label sets an expectation that the item represents quality and value. Meet four terrific manufacturers who embrace “Made in the USA”: PAIGELAUREN baby, ROCK ME!, Sara Kety Baby & Kids, and BabyFeet Jewelry.
