Bloom Kids Essentials


They’ve got kids’ backs … and their bottoms (hee-hee)!

The business of children’s underwear demands attention, especially for the girl who can’t abide creeping, pinching or shifty undies. The folks at Bloom Kids Essentials provide girls with top of the line, eco-friendly underwear that stays put. They’ve been making comfortable kids underwear since 2009 and launched this new organic line in 2017.

Made from the softest organic cotton for the ultimate in comfort and function, Bloom Kids Essentials are a sanity-saver for parents who’ve endured tantrums and fits, and for kids who go commando because they can’t stand the skin-crawling discomfort of regular underwear. With flat-lock seams and smoothie-soft waistbands, these undies “cater to the discerning tush that appreciates a wedgie-free existence with unmatched comfort and state-of-the-art design.” Kids seem to agree.

“It’s like wearing fluff on my butt.”

            -Qynne, 4 yrs

Mainstream fabrics can be full of harmful ingredients, so the softer-than-soft organic cotton, eco-friendly dyes and water-based inks used to manufacture Bloom Kids Essentials keep it good for the environment and great for your kids – with comfort, sustainability and style to boot. Less chemicals equals healthier bodies, after all.

Mummy’s Miracle


All-Natural Baby Skincare Miraculous for Baby’s Sensitive Skin

Mummy’s Miracle is an all-natural line of skincare products like no other. The handcrafted and sustainably-produced baby products are the first to use Moringa oil.

What is Moringa Oil?

Moringa oil comes from the seeds of Moringa Oleifera tree, which grows in Africa and parts of Asia. Rich in phytonutrients and anti-oxidants, moringa oil offers a variety of benefits when used in skincare, such as skin purification for an anti-aging, healthy glow. Its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties help skin heal, and its fresh fragrance and moisturizing power makes it an ideal hoice for use as a natural hair cleanser for all ages.

“For years, I searched for a toxic-free skincare regimen for myself and my babies but found none,” says Ify Chuke-Nwobi, founder of Mummy’s Miracle, which she formulates in 2010 after she discovers the power of Moringa. “The more I learned about the harmful chemicals in synthetic cosmetics, the more passionate I became about bringing conscious consumers a natural alternative that actually worked.”

After making her own body creams and oils that combine a cocktail of essential oils, Ify starts using her “potions” on herself and her children – with remarkable results: their skin retains its smoothness, softness and suppleness. It even glows.

“I found my potion so moisturizing and hydrating, I had to find a way to help other mums who were looking for a natural and safe alternative,” she says. Ify collaborates with a chemist and together they create a moisturizing, soothing and hydrating formula with botanicals featuring the miracle Moringa seed oil, known today as Mummy’s Miracle.

Mummy’s Miracle is the world’s leading natural Moringa-based skincare line that includes wash and shampoo, lotion, ointment, oil and vapor rub for baby as well as products for Mom like anti-aging Moringa oil, stretch mark lotion and nipple balm.

Mummy’s Miracle products are made from all-natural ingredients, including the best Moringa seed oil there is, raw honey, shea butter and purified water, as well as essential oils, vitamin E and more, depending on the product. The fast-growing company follows stringent production standards to ensure the products are completely all natural and free from any chemicals or other pollutants. They always put the customer first.

RockEase


Introducing the First Portable Rocking Chair Solution 

Now available for pre-order, RockEase is the first compact, easy-to-use and portable rocking chair solution that quickly converts any standard four-legged chair into a rocking chair. Taking an average of 90 seconds to install, RockEase is the perfect solution for parents needing easy access to a rocking option at home and while traveling.

The lightweight yet sturdy RockEase easily slips into a standard diaper bag or large purse, making it ideal for homes where space is at a premium and for families on the go. Soothing, nursing and rocking children while visiting grandparents and extended family is a breeze with RockEase.

While many baby gliders can cost thousands, RockEase is a budget-conscious solution for families and businesses -including hospitals, doctor’s offices, hotels and more- seeking a rocking option for guests.

Founder and mother of two Jenna Zielbauer creates RockEase after she struggles with traveling and overnight visits where a rocking chair is not readily available. Rocking is an integral part of her first daughter’s bedtime, soothing and bonding routines that very quickly becomes a necessity. When her second child is born, she suffers from postpartum depression and anxiety. Rocking is the only solution that helps her emotional wellbeing when dealing with her son’s consistent crying bouts throughout the day. After extensive research resulting in no real solutions, Jenna decides to fill the “traveling rocking chair” void with RockEase.

Weighing approximately five pounds and measuring 36-inches long when assembled, RockEase is made of heavy-duty, neutral-colored plastic material that holds a maximum weight capacity of 400 pounds. Safety-tested and patent-pending, RockEase accommodates any standard four-legged chair without additional equipment or adaptors. No extra tools needed.

How It Works

Grab RockEase from your closet, diaper bag or luggage, simply slide the rails together and secure to a chair using finger-friendly safety knobs. Staying at a hotel where a four-legged chair may not be readily available? Call the front desk and kindly ask for a dining or banquet chair to be brought to your room. RockEase can be assembled and installed in as little as 60 seconds, so you’ll be rocking in no time.

Kodomo


Playful & Stylish Clothes, Shoes & Accessories for Babies, Kids and Tweens

Kodomo is a children’s retailer that sells the cutest items for boys and girls from their stores in Massachusetts (two in Boston and the newest brick and mortar in Chestnut Hill) and online.

All the designers Kodomo partners with are hand-selected for their ethics and business practices and styles are hand-picked for their playfulness – quite a fabulous list that is growing all the time:

Genesis of Kodomo

For those who wonder, it’s pronounced kuh-doh-moh and it means “child” in Japanese. Founder Jasmine’s favorite memory of her early childhood spent in Japan is the Children’s Day holiday each May, a celebration of children’s personalities and their happiness. She founded Kodomo with this idea to respect the “powerful personalities” of the smallest shoppers and to emulate the happiness they express every day through the merchandise they offer.

And that means slow fashion.

Slow or ethical fashion embraces a transparent clothing creation process. It encompasses all steps taken to bring a garment or an accessory from the concept stage through the design phase, to production and finally to the point of sale. Great consideration is paid to each part of the manufacturing process, such as appropriate wages paid to workers, up-to-date factory conditions and maintenance, fabrics sourced with environmental impact in mind and sustainability and care are at the heart of every business decision.

Kodomo says their customers feel good about what they buy and are “tickled pink” about what they wear.

Don’t doubt it!

Aristocrat Kids


Magic happens to those who believe …

For Dace Zvirbule, founder and creative director of Aristocrat Kids, dressing her two daughters serves as the main source of inspiration in creating luxury apparel, where she emphasizes the highest quality, luxurious comfort and unique stylistic identity for children.

Famous for its distinguishing fairy tale style, Dace establishes Aristocrat Kids in 2013, gaining international recognition quickly due to the bespoke quality ready-to-wear and accessory collections for girls aged from 9 months to 12 years, each piece made by a single tailor in Aristocrat Kids Atelier.

Dace has a passion for true beauty that hides in the smallest details. Her brand is based on “a royal tale,” a story about the magical adventures of princess Alexandra in her Royal Kingdom. Each seasonal collection opens a new chapter in the fairy tale, full of magical moments and extraordinary places, and that wearing these charming dresses is the way to give back to children the sweetness and joy of happy childhood.

Thanks to the beautiful special occasion dresses, the brand is the reference when it comes to choosing an outfit for different festivities, red carpet events and religious ceremonies. The timeless pieces can be passed on to little sisters and next generations for years to come.

Dace’s exclusive line for newborn babies, Royal Baby, includes a clothing collection for boys and girls from 0 months up to 24 months, bed linen, toys and tableware. Each Royal Baby item is handmade from the best quality natural materials, using the highest standards of craftsmanship. Royal Baby hand woven textiles are unique in that amber yarn is woven into the fabrics. Amber is a natural gemstone found in the Baltic Sea with powerful soothing and stress relieving abilities, scientifically proven to take away stress, ease pains, block ultraviolet rays, regenerate skin cells and keep the body toned. Once known to be a lucky charm for the kings of Egypt, the Royal Baby line uses amber’s power to provide a soothing and calming effect for the baby.

Picture This Clothing


Wear Your Imagination.

Jaimee Newberry is co-founder and CEO of Picture This Clothing (made with love in Las Vegas), a company that lets kids and their parents design their own clothes.

She’s also Mom to daughters Sophia and Zia and her company has a wonderful back story:

“One winter break, Zia draws a picture of a rainbow dress. When I see it, I excitedly say, ‘I can make that!’ Nearly $100 of fabric and 12 hours of work later, Zia puts on the finished dress and exclaims, “I’m wearing my imagination!’”

And so, a fabulous tagline is born. After seeing Zia’s excitement, Jaimee sets out to make it possible for other children to experience the gift of wearing their imagination. Her first challenge is getting the cost down to something that could be practical for everyone. It is her boyfriend who comes up with the big idea of transforming kids’ artwork directly into their own custom-designed clothes.

“Picture This Clothing was born through this story of fun, creativity, and love right in our own home,” Jaimee says. “Thanks to an amazing growing team, we are proud to share it with you and your family.”

How It Works

  • Print & Design – Print out a template and watch your kids unleash hands-on imagination
  • Picture This Magic – Send a good picture of the artwork and Picture This will bring it to life
  • Rock Your Creation – Wear your imagination out loud with your amazing one-of-a-kind piece of art

Kids (and Big Kids) can create dresses and t-shirts; there’s also an option to create a personalized gift certificate and birthday cards. You can also shop their ready-made designs, too.

Picture This also offers party kits that make the experience of designing your imaginative clothing a crazy-fun group activity. They have all the materials to help you plan the event, including invitations, prep-checklist, supplies, themes and an RSVP guest list. Print out as many free t-shirt and dress templates as you need, take lots of photos and be sure to get your party discount code as well as tips on how to photograph.

Sounds fantastically fun!
