Kardashian Kids (and Family?) Growing!

Friday, June 6th, 2014

Whether or not you watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians you need to see the three older sisters’ amazing Kardashian Kids collection at Babies “R” Us, which launched in March and has new, super-on-trend girl clothes hitting shelves June 15th. Here’s a first look at some of the pieces!

Kourtney says that her daughter and niece (Penelope and North) inspire a lot of the ideas, and some of the prints and styles are spinoffs of the Kardashian Kollection at Sears. Kourtney and Kim, like many other moms, want to dress their children in something fashionable and comfortable.

One thing Kourtney has not talked to us about: Whether she and longtime boyfriend Scott Disick are expecting their third child together. We suspect she’s hiding her bump, but we won’t have to wait much longer to know for sure; her mom says all will be made clear on this Sunday’s episode, E! Online reports.

Maybe if Kourtney adds another son to her family to join little Mason we’ll see baby-boy clothes added to Kardashian Kids. Until then, it’s for girls newborn to 24 months, though Kourtney tells us that she’s seen fan pictures of preschoolers wearing the clothes too, for instance wearing one of the baby dresses as a top. When you look at how sophisticated the clothes are (the color-blocking! The pleather!) it’s no surprise that families are making them stretch into older ages. Side note: The spring collection, on sale now that the summer stuff is coming out, was pretty much all under $30 and we expect the summer clothes to be very affordable too.

Getting dressed in the winter always proves to be a bit of a hassle. And bundling layer upon layer to brave the cold is especially hard on kids who can’t stop longing for the easy days of summer. Fortunately, despite the dreary weather outside, many clothing brands are now debuting spring lines to lift young spirits.

They’re offering ONE lucky winner a $100 gift card to spend on the site. To enter, leave a comment below, up to one a day between today and the end of the day February 24. More Qs about our giveaway?

American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win Bodysuits from Lolly Wolly Doodle

Thursday, March 28th, 2013

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Brandi Tysinger-Temple, the founder of Lolly Wolly Doodle, a kids’ clothing company that makes most of it’s sales, believe it or not, on Facebook. Every day her company posts pictures of new clothes they create at their headquarters in Lexington, North Carolina. Facebook fans (over half a million of them!) can view the clothes and send a message if there’s a look they’re interested in. Lolly Wolly Doodle sends an invoice, which you have a few days to pay, and then the clothes are shipped out. It’s a simple system, and now they are the largest “store” on all of Facebook! 

That a mom of four created a business that went from her and a few friends to about 100 employees in a few short years is endlessly impressive to me! But then, the clothes are very cute and original. If you’ve got a little girl who loves ruffles, you’ve got to check them out! And know this: Brandi says that some styles sell out in just minutes. (Most disappear after about 72 hours. Talk about fast fashion!)

Lolly Wolly Doodle will give away six bodysuits, worth $17 each, to our American Baby fans. If you win, you can tell us whether you want the hot-pink girl style or the turquoise boy style, and in what size. 

To be eligible, leave a comment below, up to one a day between now and the end of the day on Wednesday, April 3. We’ll randomly choose six winners after that. Read the official rules here. Goody luck!

American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win $100 of Mini Boden

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

Babies don’t go back to school, but that doesn’t mean your tiny person couldn’t use some new fall clothes. Since I’m clothes-shopping for my biggies this month, I have the itch to blog about brands I’ve loved since they were small, starting with Mini Boden. It’s a Web site and a catalog out of England, run by Johnnie Boden, a dad.

Their stuff isn’t the cheapest, but it is very well-made. I’d compare it to Gap quality. It’s got a British design flair, with a lot of sweet plaids, darling appliques, and pretty trims. A pack of five different, thick, long-sleeved bodysuits like the ones shown here is $46. If you sign up for their emails, you’ll get a free-shipping offer what seems like every few weeks, which saves you a $10 charge.

PS although it’s much more fun to buy baby clothes, you should know that Boden also makes maternity clothes. We use their $34 leggings in a lot of our maternity fashion shoots. They’re soft and silky and I’m not too ashamed to say that maybe, just maybe, some of us wear them when we aren’t pregnant too.

Whether you need baby clothes, maternity clothes, big-kid clothes or something for your guy, I think you’d be happy with anything from Boden. To make it easier, I’ve begged the Boden folks to give one fortunate poster a $100 giftcard. (You’re welcome!) Leave a comment, up to one a day, anytime from now until the end of the day on Wednesday, August 15th. We’ll randomly pick one post for the $100 giftcard. You can read the full rules here. Goody luck!

‘Out of Print’ Clothing Releases Kids’ T-Shirts Featuring Children’s Books

Monday, January 23rd, 2012

I’m a big fan of clever and unique t-shirts, especially literary-themed ones from the company Out of Print, which puts familiar and unique covers of famous classic and modern classic books on super soft tees.  (For the record, I own a gray Pride and Prejudice tee  and a white The Great Gatsby tee with an art deco design.)

As the Toddlers/Preschoolers editor at and a fan of childen’s books, I’m excited that Out of Print launched a collection of kids’ t-shirts showcasing covers of classic and popular children’s books such as The Wizard of Oz, Charlotte’s Web,  The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Harold and the Purple Crayon, In the Night Kitchen, Sylvester and the Magic Pebble, and more. 

The tees are unisex for ages 2 to 6 and cost between $22-24.  As with all Out of Print t-shirts, for each one sold, one book is donated to a community in need through Books of Africa.

Now, I’m counting down the days until these children’s books make their way onto adult-sized tees…
