Babymel’s comic book-inspired kiddie backpacks leap into action with animated prints any young superhero would love.
The Baby And Kid Products You Didn’t Know You Wanted—Until Now
If you’ve had a child or are expecting one, the shear volume of gear, gadgets, and goods that come with one tiny little person can be overwhelming. But the juvenile products industry isn’t slowing down any time soon. Baby and kids brands met last week at the 2013 ABC Kids Expo to debut their newest crop of clothes, bags, nursery items, feeding products, and travel goods.
Kids’ Bags and Gear:
Penny Scallan Design brings bold new prints to everything a kid could need at home or out and about, including suitcases, lunch bags, water bottles, smocks, umbrellas, and storage items.
Caden Lane cozies up to colorful new prints and patterns that are perfect for both boys and girls.
Fabulous Goose makes a fabulous choice for the nursery or almost any room of the house. The company’s cotton blankets are made in Europe and feature natural dyes.
Buttering up Santa with sweet treats is definitely the way to go, and Child to Cherish has just the way to do it. The company’s new holiday set features a chalkboard platter on which kids can leave messages for St. Nick.
When you gotta go, you gotta go. My Carry Potty makes potty training less of a chore with new bumblebee, cow, and ladybug themes on its updated potty design.
Nested Bean’s weighted Zen Swaddle gets a charming makeover with delightful storybook bird, giraffe, and mice patterns.
Practically every nursery has a Twilight Turtle, and now the Twilight Turtle Tune from CloudB has a Bluetooth connection so parents can stream baby’s favorite music.
Just like a mom, Evie & Bett thinks of everything with its debut collection of diaper bags and coolers that fuse fashion and function.
Ju-Ju-Be expands its machine-washable, Teflon-coated mom bag line with the fifth print in its Tokidoki series and a new duffle shape.
Clothing & Accessories:
Popular handbag brand Vera Bradley has entered the baby clothing market with three sweet and colorful collections for girls.
Twinkie melds trends and age-appropriate designs for a scene-stealing collection of shoes to complement everything from jeans to dresses.
KidKraft creates a home for 18” dolls that’s perfect for open-ended play with the latest addition to its dollhouse series.
