As parents can attest to, kids change constantly. The bookworm becomes a glamour-puss, while the boy who was glued to his electronic device suddenly opts for active sports. Retailers need to offer a range of items that capture the mercurial nature of youngsters and be prepared with items that can change, increasing the play factor. Dolls that morph from one personality to another; games that get kids up and around; action figures with variety built into them; and makeup that helps girls experiment safely are a few currently hot items. Get in on the action with selections from Playhut, ParkZarz, BackSlapz and Luna Star.

“Safety first!” is a caution that retailers cannot share with their new family customers often enough. Safety gates are a must in most homes, and Gatekeepers models come in wood or paint options to match existing décor. Mommy’s Helper carries every kind of safety gear, with stylish and simple solutions. Safety is not only a concern during waking hours — parents need reassurance that their children are safe sleepers too. The SafeToSleep breathing monitor and the Heaven Sent crib mattress by Secure Beginnings are two options.

Some parents take it for granted that they can go into a toy store and buy whatever their child wants. Parents of special needs children know it’s never that easy, and retailers who carry toys and clothing for their child’s specific needs can foster a valuable customer relationship to last a lifetime. A few examples of all-inclusive products include Pocket Frenz for children who need something small and tangible to get them through the day; Fun and Function toys, games and apparel; Soft Clothing’s seamless, tagless apparel for children who find regular clothes irritating; and WorryWoos for children who have trouble processing emotions.
For our first BooBoo blog post, we thought it would be a good idea to share with you how the idea of BooBoo Kids came about. We talk about it a bit on our web site, but want to go into a little more detail on here. It’s a question that we get asked often, so here’s how it happened…
It all started out as a normal sunny day in August until I received a phone call that my 3-year-old great niece fell off the couch and broke her arm. Then, the very next weekend, I was out with my husband and we got a call that my 4-year-old granddaughter was in the Emergency Room with a broken leg.
The Babymoon Pillow was created when designer, Kelly Su couldn’t find a solution for her 3 month old’s “flat head”. Flat Head Syndrome is a common issue and can lead to long-term mis-forming of the skull. As more and more families are following guidelines to put their babies to sleep on their backs, Flat Head Syndrome has also risen. The Babymoon Pillow was designed to ease flat head for babies that love lying on their back. Not intended for use during sleep, this donut shaped pillow keeps the baby’s head elevated off the floor or seat, providing light neck support and eliminating pressure on the back of the head.

For decades, mompreneurs have been a creative force behind product innovations in the children’s market. Not content to make do with what the retail world offers, moms often come up with ideas to solve common childcare problems. The Giggle Guide™ editors heard about a mompreneur that we’re pretty sure has no equal, and yet is relatable to the “everymom.” Robyn Pellei is the mother of 10 children, ages newborn to 12, the most recent born last December. This former nurse is now a home school educator and teaches all of her children at home. And in her spare time, she is the CEO of ViveVita.
Cure-Couture was the design idea of the late Linda Segal. Linda was a successful women’s fashion designer for more than 25 years. In 2007, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and required chemotherapy treatments. It was Linda’s experiences in the chemo center at the hospital that gave her the inspiration to design Cure-Couture: fashionable, yet functional patient gowns. Linda sadly lost her battle with breast cancer in 2009, but her idea lives on through her daughter Ashley Segal, and her design protégé, Linsay Alvarado. Ashley and Linsay describe their business venture as making a giant pitcher of lemonade from the lemons they were given.
