Rock Me

Anna Muzzy
(757) 636-7694

Rock Me has revolutionized the way you dress your bundle of joy by offering a collection of one piece ‘separates’ that are free of any closures. Rock Me garments look like layered outfits but they have no snaps, no buttons, no zippers, and no other closures. Instead they open up in the back, like a pillow sham, making changing and dressing babies quick and easy. It’s actually a snap… only without any!

Last Spring (2012,) Rock Me started a new and improved design! There is much more stretch in the ‘pillow sham’ opening in the back of each garment! And another bonus, due to customer demand, Rock Me is also offering an expanded collection including separates . . . dresses, tees, and shorts up to a size 6.

Rock Me is the modern solution for dressing babies with style and ease. Bid a fond farewell to farm animal appliques and a good riddance to snaps forever! Rock Me is made in the USA, brought to you by two mothers, and we just know you will love the collection!

No Slippy Hair Clippy, Inc.

(800) 466-7304

No Slippy Hair Clippy®, known for creating the non-slip hair accessories® category, is regarded as the premier hair accessories company for babies and girls. Impeccable quality with wonderful hand-made designs differentiates No Slippy Hair Clippy® from other bow companies.

For generations, baby girls have often been mistaken for boys. Until No Slippy Hair Clippy® entered the marketplace, there wasn’t a hair accessory created specifically to stay in baby-fine or silky smooth hair.

No Slippy clips® are quite unique. Our clip has evolved to a more luxurious plush Swiss velvet ribbon, wrapped completely around the clip. This provides an identical snug, secure grip, but the clip is now lighter weight, and so soft little girls don’t realize they’re wearing our hair clips! (See testimonials!)

Over time, we have continued to grow with new products appropriate for girls of all ages. We offer three different clip types and sizes; a Mini, a Standard Alligator, and a French Clip for girls with more hair. All clips are non-slip, and won’t slide in any type of hair.

Our fabulous collection of non-slip headbands continues to be a No Slippy® favorite, using cute flowers and bows to adorn these soft stretchy headbands. We even line the band with velvet under the trim so there is no irritating seam or binding. This high standard of quality separates No Slippy Hair Clippy® from other companies.

No Slippy® clips and headbands are a huge celebrity favorite, photographed often in Hollywood (view Press Page online!)

In line with the upcoming election, dress baby with pride in our new Americana short jammies and footed romper. Featuring bright vibrant colors and glow in the dark stars!! Don’t forget our latest Weeblock, Pee Party!! Protect yourself with our wee absorbing sponge.

Sure to make a statement are our new spring line of bodysuit and cap sets. Featuring adorable Dapper, Posh and 3 other fun styles. Available in 3, 6 and 9 months.

As a new addition to our line of popular bunting sets, we are introducing Sweet Strawberry. Adorned with rich appliqués and fold over cuffs in super soft 100% cotton.

The Cate & Levi Collection

Josh Title
(416) 662-9392

As my wife and I awaited the birth of our first child, I noticed that there was a lack of one of a kind, responsibly made, and beautifully designed products for children. I decided to create a unique collection of products that would be intricately crafted and environmentally responsible.

The Cate & Levi Collection is HANDMADE at my studio in Toronto, Canada. Together with my talented production team, I oversee every aspect of this collection. All the materials are sourced as close to home as possible. This process cuts down on shipping and reduces our carbon footprint. The choice of reclaimed wool reduces demand for new materials that require both water and oil for production. My goal is for these items to leave the softest possible pawprint on our planet.

No two Cate & Levi products will ever be the same. Each one is made from reclaimed wool whose colors and textures are individually selected. Not only is this process environmentally responsible, but it ensures that each animal is truly a one of a kind creation never to be duplicated. Each item is as unique as the child who adopts it.
