Mommy Toolbox was launched by Mary Kay Holms in the Fall of 2008 after several years of watching her friends use less than ideal tools to attach things to strollers. She says, “I’m always looking for ways to make life easier and being able to strap things onto a stroller or your body leaves your hands free to take care of the kids.” Inspired to help other parents, she created the convenient Carabean clip. Mary Kay, based in Los Angels, gives us a “Behind the Brand” look at the tools of her trade and how she crafted her handy dandy company.

Sustainable plastics and stainless steel alternatives that combine safety, fun and functionality are great solutions!

The Children’s Club Fall 2010 show had a great turnout and was a huge success! It was exciting to see several new companies exhibiting with some unique products. Without the Bubble show running, some of its regular exhibitors decided to attend Children’s Club, largely exhibiting together in one row. With so many great lines, it is a difficult task to pick out favorites, but the following brands stood out to me with their soft, comfortable fabrics and fabulous style!

These showrooms are the ideal venue for wholesale buyers to shop efficiently and do business with trusted sales professionals.
