Everything about these bags (the fabric, the colors, the animals, those ribbons!) is super cute and just so much fun!
I could totally see all of these elements being incorporated into a baby's nursery.

Wubbanubs are Here!

We've been hearing raves about these little pacifier/lovie combos!

Plus...if you read my last Wubbabnub post, you'll see where I mentioned that Dierks Bently is a fan (well, his daughter is a fan) and anything good enough for Dierks is good enough for me!
Here are a couple of pictures of my bloggy friend Renee's little boy Keeghan, with his Wubbanubs. Renee was one of the first to tell us about Wubbanubs and how great they are. Isn't he cute?

Zanybandz anyone?

Update: So I lied...we don't have the Zanybandz in at the shop yet. Mom told me that the rubber band bracelets were in and I just assumed that it was the Zanybandz.
They're still on their way. We do, however, have another type of rubber band bracelets currently in stock. I'll keep you posted on the Zanybandz though.
We really do listen to you...
Those popular rubber-bandy bracelets shaped like animals, letters of the alphabet, cars, etc?
You wanted them, we've got them. They just came in today.
And check it out...some of them even glow in the dark!
From what I've heard these fly off the shelves so come in and collect all the styles while they're in stock!

They're even more "adorable" in person...I promise!

Chic Diaper Bags

Today's new mommy needs more than just a big diaper bag to carry all of the baby necessities...
she needs a cute and stylish bag that can be carried just about anywhere.
We can help with that...

These are cute enough to keep around even after the baby outgrows the bag.
Just think about it...the same outer (and inner) material that keeps baby's milk and applesauce from staining the bag will one day keep sand (beach bag) and shampoo (carry-on bag) from messing up the bag. I love it!

[insert skateboarder slang here]

Yes...the Hello Kitty people make just about everything.
And this skateboard is actually available at the shop!
Come check it out....dude.

Hello Kitty has gone green!

We all knew that it would happen eventually...
[Check out the fun reusable tote above...kind of makes you want to go grocery shopping, huh?]
She is quite trendy you know...
[The stickers above would look great on notebooks, car windows, etc. Show your HK pride wherever you go!]
And as a model for young girls all over the world...
[Reusable water bottles like the one above are great alternatives to the throw-away water bottles and a REALLY great alternative over Styrofoam cups!]
We all knew that eventually...
[The burlap-y tote above is the perfect size for a little girl's purse]

Hello Kitty would jump on the "going green" bandwagon...
[The usual mechanical pencils and ballpoint pens in great earth tones...and the pencil is awesome...I'll take an up close picture when I think of it.]

I suppose if you're going to get on a bandwagon...
[And check out the adorable HK plush above]

the green one would be the one to go with.
[I love the reusable thermos and travel coffee mug. Love!]

Pretty pendants

After the success of the autumn and Christmas themed pendants - not to mention the football ones (see below) - I'm really looking forward to what you think of these winter/Valentine's Day ones!

Coming Very Soon

We're always looking for new, exciting, useful, inspired and unique items for the shop.

We go to the Market to look for these things, also we listen to our sales reps and pay attention to all of the trends.

More often than not, though, we look first to you for tips about what we need to carry at the shop! So, thanks to suggestions by YOU...these two awesome baby lines will soon be arriving at the shop!

cute, cute, cute! Legwarmers for babies and kids - especially great for crawlers and potty training kids - socks and tights too.
OH! And they support the Ronald McDonald House and several other very worthy causes!
From their website:

BabyLegs® became a leader in children's fashion when it created a new niche in the market for its original line of children's leg and arm warmers in 2005. Created by a mom to keep her daughter's legs warm while she was diaper free, BabyLegs® leg warmers quickly became a parenting essential because of their utility, practicality, and stylish appeal. In the fall of 2009, BabyLegs® expanded into children's hosiery with the introduction of baby socks and girls tights.

BabyLegs® legwarmers have been well celebrated; BabyLegs® was awarded the 2007 Best New Brand Earnie Award by Earnshaw's Magazine, a leading trade publication, for "Excellence in Children's Wear Design", and again awarded an Earnie in 2008 for "Excellence in Children's Hosiery." Most recently, BabyLegs® leg warmers were voted "Best Shower Gift" by readers of Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine. "The Original. Like you.," BabyLegs® strives to be a leader in all endeavors, from community outreach to synergistic partnerships.


a pacifier and lovie all in one - two of baby's favorite things combined - also solves the "missing pacifier" problem once and for all.
And country singer Dierks Bentley (and daddy to Baby Evie) is a big fan of Wubbanubs and even wrote a song about them that he sings to his daughter!

From their website:

Necessity is the mother of invention... A mother's love for her fussy child sparked inventiveness and ingenuity to create a revolutionary product which has been soothing baby's fussy time for over 10 years. Every parent will agree that they would do just about anything to soothe their crying child. Most parents also have their own "crying baby" horror stories which seemed to test their very sanity. The "Original" WubbaNub was created to solve a common dilemma most young families face.

The Birth of WubbaNub... They say "necessity is the mother of invention " and for Carla Schneider, it was an absolute necessity that she soothe her infant baby on their first vacation as a family. What was supposed to be a relatively relaxing, blissful time was replaced with non-stop fussing and crying. After an entire night of the ever-persistent "missing pacifier syndrome", Carla knew she needed to take matters into her own hands. She found the hotel sewing kit and took her baby's favorite soft plush toy and sewed the pacifier right onto it. Thus, a happy ending for the Schneider family's vacation and the birth of the first WubbaNub!

The luv for WubbaNub... Although pacifiers have been a family staple for numerous years, Carla's patented concept turned out to be a truly innovative improvement. Moms recognized the peaceful tranquility their children received and spread the word along to others. That word quickly spread to hospitals, who quickly recognized the products unique benefits. the slight weight of the plush animal keeps the pacifier in place near the baby. It also provides comfort and makes it so much easier for the baby to grasp and manipulate the pacifier themselves. Which means fewer bouncing, rolling and lost pacifiers and less rooting around in the stroller, crib or bag to find where the pacifier went.

WubbaNub has crated a reputation in the parenting and children's industry for being dedicated to nurturing babies in the safest, healthiest way possible. Over the last decade, WubbaNubs have been sold nationwide, converting a majority into die-hard fans because "once you go Wub, everything else is just a pacifier".

Even though Carla's children are not WubbaNub users anymore, her core philosophy to create products that she would feel safe giving them still holds true. WubbaNub strives to surpass the strictest codes and governmental regulations that ensure it is offering the best and safest WubbaNub products possible.

I'll keep you posted about the new lines that we're bringing into the shop and about when the Wubbanubs and BabyLegs start arriving. Stay tuned! And thanks again for your suggestions...keep 'em coming!
