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!

Adding color to your crib is totally fresh and that’s why we are mad about Kalon Studios’ caravan crib. With lots of colors to choose from, this is truly a custom crib, and hence  furniture worth waiting for. The pot of gold at the end, well that’s your baby.
