Cool Costumes Part 3 September 26, 2011

Couldn’t help myself – there are so many cute costumes this year! Here are others that I really like –

1. Best part of this kangaroo costume? The little baby kangaroo in the front pocket. Awww… You can find it at chasing fireflies for $48.



2. Clown costumes are a dime a dozen – I love this one because it is quirky and cute and a little bit different for those kids who like being silly. You can find it at Sensational Beginnings for just $29.95 although they are short on sizes – right now they have 2T-4T and 4-6.

3. In my time it was Raggedy Ann, but now no one knows who that is so it is just a Rag Doll, and this one is so pretty. I love the wig the most, and it will be a great opportunity for your little one to wear a little make-up without going overboard. You can find it at costume nation for $27, and the stockings are just a little more at $6.00.

4.  This Statue of Liberty costume is gorgeous but expensive. The dress alone is $48 and then the torch and the crown costs an additional $28 but if your child wants to shine as Lady Liberty, this is the best one I have seen.

5. If you have a kid who loves to dance like crazy – this costume is PERFECT. Mr. Six Flags is hilarious and who wouldn’t have a blast jiggity jigging down the trick-or-treat street.  You can find it at costume nation for $28. Stock is low so act quick.

Many of you have already made the backpack buying decisions, but others, like myself,were still searching for something cute yet functional, hip yet still child-like, comforting yet enabling, serious yet silly… really? No. I think we all just want a backpack that our child loves and that will last.
These backpacks from are adorable. They are roomy, they are made well, and who can resist the choices – fox, monkey, penguin, elephant? We chose Zebra.
They also have matching insulated lunch bags that match.
You can find them at Skip Hop for $20.


Phil & Ted’s Excellent Adventure March 6, 2011

Phil & Ted’s Escape Backpack and Baby Carrier is not for the faint of heart. Complete with padding, storage, rearview mirror, sun cover with roll-out rain flaps, and a lightweight design, this backpack/carrier is for walking, hiking and just general getting around but probably less for just quick trips to the grocery store. Children up to 3 years old can be carried since the carrier is lightweight and comes with lumbar support. Drawbacks include lots to adjust to get started but one of the cutest features are the foot harnesses that come with covers so that there are no lost shoes! If you like to be active, and you are looking for some adventure with you little one, then this is worth the $200.

How many of you have tried to get your little one to pose for the monthly picture with a piece of paper that includes how old they are in months plus maybe the date? I know I have! Its easy at first when they are tiny and don’t move much but then as they get older you have to be a magician to keep them from  crumpling up the paper or to keep them from throwing it on the floor etc. In come STICKY BELLIES! I LOVE these things. For about $15 you get 12 individual monthly stickers that can be put on onesie and presto! you have yourself a picture ready kid!!
