Babesta Thumbs Up: Zombie Baby Costume Kickstarter Project!

I’m always paging through Kickstarter to find what cool ideas are out there. The last one we supported was Pool+, which met its funding requirements – the project was to build a floating swimming pool in the East River. (Tres cool, New Yorkers!)

This one is of a different variety! Zombie Babies!

With Halloween squarely in the lead as my favorite holiday, I think this Zombie Baby costume is spot on. It’s simple & out of the box & the horror-style video with the sweet baby with plush entrails hanging from their flannel button down warms your heart. (Waay to cute to be scary!)

Zombie Babiez

Good luck Stephanie Davidson! We at Babesta definitely think the Halloween costume business needs a little shaking up with some entrepreneurial costume options for the “i’m not dressing my baby like a pumpkin” set.

Jeremy Scott’s New Collection for Cybex is Like Middle School All Over Again!

jeremy scott for cybex

We are wild about Jeremy Scott’s new collection with uber baby gear brand Cybex. The over-the-top Scott (known for putting wings on sneakers at Adidas) has added some comic appeal to some of the more mundane childhood commodities. Tapping a hallmark of 80s cafeterias across America, the idea was “food fight”. “That always seemed to happen in movies but i’ve never had one happen in my life. . . It always seemed like a cool thing happening in a cool high school,” says Scott. He proceeded to design a pattern with each food character in a state of combat–from wearing boxing gloves to throwing popcorn. The pattern is applied to a range of goods at Cybex, from our fave car seat, the Aton to convertible strollers and even a diaper bag. They’re being feted tonight in NYC & coming in September to Babesta! Preorder yours here.  -J.C., image by S.R.

Get a Little Creative

little creative factory

We’re really excited to add Little Creative Factory to Babesta’s list of designers this season.  LCF was founded by two architect mothers – Christina and Esther – in Barcelona, Spain to express their creativity and enthusiasm for all things made with love.  All  their products are produced by slow manufacture processes; nothing is mass-produced.  Every piece is inspired by the little things in life and by the spontaneity of the daughters of the founders, Ona and Gala.  Cuts are simple; styling is classic; and each piece is easy and unique.  We’re especially excited about the details on their pieces – like the applique flowers on the rompers above – and the simple and slightly funky snood for this season!

This Just In! Jimmy Boots Make a Splash

Jimmy Boot - Yellow Rain.Jimmy Hollywood Pink.300_cmyk Rain.Jimmy Regatta Blue.300_cmyk

Native Shoes’ new Jimmy Rain boot in three fantastic colors brighten even the greyest days!  100% washable, odor resistant, shock absorbent, and waterproof, in these boots your kids will make a splash and you won’t have to worry them jumping around (which is good, because you won’t be able to stop them).

I especially love the classic yellow rain boot.  I’m thinking pair it with Hansel from Basel’s Nautical stripe tights and Mini Rodini’s Star dress for a girl, or La Miniatura’s Davy the Whale sweater and Crayon Skinny Jeans in Ocean Blue for a boy… But that’s just me.  These boots are an exciting, easy addition to any outfit.

To Know Miffy is to Love Miffy

Miffy

Drawn by a father for his one-year-old son,

We’re super pumped about this Dutch Rabbit!

Miffy’s her name, and this nightlight’s sure to stun;

Any décor she’ll easily inhabit!

 

She’s been at home in books, TV, and a movie,

Now you can find her chasing away the darkness

In two different sizes, cool and cutesy,

This dimmable lamp has LED sharpness.

 

Minimalist style with a touch of fancy,

Bruna’s bunny is taking Babesta by storm;

Miffy cannot but make you smile and be happy,

and your child’s room it will quickly transform!
