Mini Kardashians

Kourtney Kardashian has wanted to design baby clothes ever since she was pregnant with her son, Mason, five years ago. After she gave birth to her daughter, Penelope, she and her sister Kim (mom to daughter North) and sister Khloé made it happen. What you'll find: The Kardashian Kids line, with touches of leopard and tribal prints, reflects the sisters' trendy style. There are also clothes in traditional pastel colors and fun prints, like the set at left that's bedecked with butterflies. "The first two years are when you can dress a baby in any style you want. It makes it fun for you!" Kourtney says. The line is for girls only now, but Kourtney hopes to expand to boy clothes soon. (Sleeveless top and bubble-shorts set, $30)
