New York International Gift Fair - New York City, New York (1/29/11 - 2/3/11)

The fun, funny, fabulous concept known as Silly Souls was hatched in 2000 and launched in 2002 — originally branded as babygags. The line was the original irreverently funny line of apparel and accessories for the coolest babies. The company evolved to a more whimsical, silly style and rebranded as Silly Souls when they launched their super baby shoe line. Across their product range, the brand’s goal remains to inspire laughter and the sunny, funny side of parenthood — including the silly personalities that each baby comes with.
