Designers we ♥

Belgium brands seem to lead the pack in children’s clothing design. We are always excited to display the Simple Kids collection in our store as it is usually greeted by multiple ‘ooohhhs and aaahhhhhs’ as our eager customers grab it straight out of the box!

This summer the elegant designs did not disappoint from denim shorts with matching vests to exquisite silk dresses that can take your little fashionista from playdate to that very special event.

Sophie The Giraffe

Hooray! Sophie le Girafe is finally here. Born in 1961, Sophie has been soothing French babies’ sore gums ever since. Made of 100% natural rubber from the Hevea tree and decorated with food grade paint, she is the perfect and safe solution to your baby’s discomfort. She is as cute as a button and her sweet spots help your baby to distinguish color contrast. Perhaps it’s my bias for giraffes with rosy cheeks, but I think she is really swell. This vintage baby is brand new to the states and Yoya gives her a warm bienvenue.

What came first? The plant or the Eggling? The Eggling of course! Originating in Japan, the Eggling is a ceramic all-in-one planter that makes it easy for kids or any ’green-thumb’ challenged gardener achieve success. Simply crack the top with a spoon, water and wait. Within weeks, your little one can boast about their chrysanthemum or cactus plant (among other varieties). All in all there are ten egglings available: three herbs (basil, mint and thyme), three flowers (chrysanthemum, phlox, petunia), and four special edition varieties (lavender, cactus, red pepper, and wild strawberry).

It’s a great gift at birthday parties for the 6+ crowd.

Ever wonder whether your efforts to save and sort empty milk jugs would really make a difference?

Voila….Green Toys, a California based environmentally conscious toy producer with line of classic children’s toys constructed from recycled plastic and other environmentally friendly materials.

We love their classic 17-piece Tea Set great for an impromptu social gathering, and was happy to see the addition of their 15-piece Tool Set, complete with nuts and bolts for handy hands and busy bodies.
