New Jammies Helps Kids Sleep Safe and Sound

New Jammies
Nicole Johnson, creator of New Jammies, feels passionately about providing chemical and toxin-free clothing for children. Her enthusiasm for science led her to obtain her Bachelor’s degree in Organic Chemistry; however, after working as a chemist for eight years, she decided she would rather prevent chemical exposure instead of study it.

Along with educating parents and children about environmentally responsible choices in clothing, this New Jersey native also works hard to promote green living, healthy eating and constructive play. It is little wonder then, that the New Jammies’ motto is, “Eat Right, Play Right, Sleep Tight.” Johnson helps parents teach their children to do all three.

The sleepwear, footies, rompers, and one-pieces are all made from 100% organic cotton and are patterned with fruits, vegetables, animals, and popular sports themes (like swimming, biking, and golf). Footies, such as the Ever-Green Peace Snuggly PJ (in pink or blue) are $33.00 MSRP, while rompers, like the Wheels on My Bike Barefoot Romper, are $29.00. Other favorites include the Night Owls Snuggly PJ ($33), Blueberry Jammies ($33), and Swim Like a Fish Jammies (sale price $14.00). Best of all, free shipping is provided for orders over $100.

Both a family business and a global craft supplier with products in high demand, the Janlynn Corporation employs 75 full-time employees, and over sixty additional designers to their already large in-house design staff; needless to say, new product development is integral to their business and they have yet to let that ball drop.

Mint Packs a Punch in Bag Gear

Meet Christi Chittim, the creative director and co-owner of Mint. Twelve years back, Christi and her husband Jimmy headed to Texas from Chicago to help Jimmy’s mother, Joy, with the original family business, Flying Circle Bags. While Jimmy worked in FCB, Christi took over the task of creating a children’s line. She gathered ideas, employees and subsequently, came up with Mint. Over the last decade, Christi and her dream team in Texas have created and sold top-quality bags, backpacks, totes, pillows, and more, which can also be personalized.

Mint’s backpack selection is perfect for slumber parties, because girls and boys require a bag to carry their toothbrush and pajamas in, and why not pack in style? Mint’s small and medium backpacks can carry everything from mp3 players to action figures. The medium backpacks have a bit more room for school supplies and come with a lunch box as an added bonus. As for styles, the backpacks are available in over 20 choices, including pink cheetah, lime polka dots, hot pink zebra, camo, chocolate bloom, lilac, navy, and grassy green.

Lots to Love from Olive Juice

Olive Juice
Olive Juice, cleverly named for how when spoken the phrase sounds like, “I love you,” has just released their Back-to-School clothing line. The fresh designs for this exciting new line were inspired by the fashion and streets of Paris.

Olive Juice proudly sells “classic” children’s clothing, and there is no other word that so perfectly describes their line. The colors for both boys and girls apparel are block colors, often pastels or dark fall colors, like brick red, navy blue, and leaf brown. For the clothes that are not monotone, they are artfully and subtly patterned with stripes. The clothing relies on the staples of everyday wear — such as turtlenecks, sweaters, blouses, jumpers, coats, underclothes, coveralls, leggings, vests, polos, jeans, skirts and dresses of all sorts.

For girls, the Andrea Coveralls ($19.95 MSRP) are charming, as is the Buttercup Blouse ($27.95). For boys, the Red Marin Tee, ($22.95) and the Sweater Tee, ($37.95) are perfect examples of the poise and sophistication exemplified in Olive Juice’s collection. If that wasn’t enough, Olive Juice also sells scarves, coats, hats, swim wear, berets, play tutus, and children’s books which encourage cultural and global awareness.
