I went on a hunt for kid and parent-friendly music.  What does this mean exactly?  Well I don’t know about you, but I can’t stand the mainstream “kid” music.  I just watched a commercial the other day for a compilation CD of popular kid songs.  I cringed in horror at

Zutano is known for its bright and colorful infant-kid apparel.  The designs and pleasant colors were what first attracted me to Zutano.  Once I felt their items, washed them, let my daughter repeatedly wear them, I noticed the quality.  These clothes are meant to last, and will stand up to

Blabla continues to be a leader in producing quality, hand knit toys and clothing for our children.  We featured their bird rattles last year and have continued to follow blabla’s progress.  I adore my daughter’s collection as much as she does, I think.  Everything crafted by blabla is so soft
