Make that list and check it twice! It's time to hit the books. Are your tiny tots prepared? If you're feeling behind the curve, be sure to scan this list for some last-minute inspiration--much of which I picked up after visiting the ENK and Playtime New York trade shows this season. Wahoo!
Nobody does superfly T-shirts like Mini & Maximus. With their "kids will have their say" outlook, they break molds left and right by collaborating with up-and-coming artists and wee artists themselves, featuring designs by both each season. With this tee in your closet, you SO don't have to grow up. Predictably, I emailed to ask about getting one in my size.
The ever-fab Mad Pax backpacks, like, barely an introduction. I'd love mine in orange, in case you were wondering... plus they use the word Rad in copious quantities, which makes this California girl's vocab-o-meter sing.
For the stroller set, I spotted a new Magnificent Baby design, in the sweetest-ever elephant print! My pal (and kiddo tastemaker) Elina designed it... anyone need a shower gift? New moms go nuts for the magnetic closures. I keep a few of these onesies in a drawer for last-minute gift-giving, and so should you. (Speaking of shower gifts, I also give people these, if cashmere is more your thang...)
Where would you go on your Babymoon? Did you take one? I'd go here, here or here. I just did a fabulous weekend with my cousins, a "cousincation", here. My friend took her Babymoon here and can't say enough about the New-England-luxeness of it all! Do I have to be with child to demand that my man take me on one? Oh yeah, without a bun in the oven, it's just called a vacation.
