Style and value needn’t plummet along with the temperatures. Case in point: The must-have fall children’s clothing currently on deep discount at Shop Parents. Quantities are limited, so visit now!
• No matter where autumn adventures take your little one, keep her warm with a striped cashmere sweater (75% off!) or a versatile navy-blue cardigan.
• Just as rugged as your kid, bootcut jeans look good and wear well. And when they’re on sale: even better.
• Your little rebel will rule the pack ‘n play in a Joe Fresh faux-leather jacket with popped collar.

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!

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!

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 Parents.com 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…
