The latest

Children's product is amazing....really it is.  We had SO much fun checking out all of the showrooms.  It is nearly impossible to look at the product without ooing and awwing and squealing... We're glad we decided to go for it!

So, the shoe thing we think we have down pat.  Brands we plan to carry:
-Tip Toey Joey (mostly exclusive in US)
-Native (GREAT line!)
-Me in Mind
-Either See Kai Run or Livie and Luca (probably the latter, because they aren't as mainstream)
-Banana Peel flip flops
-Morgan and Milo (maybe...probably not in the beginning)
-Pediped (also probably not out of the gates)

Our goal with the shoes is to have some exclusivity, some known names, and a nice mix of more obscure brands. We're really excited about how it's going to turn out.

Now...on to the "fun stuff".  It is "Shoes and Fun Stuff for Baby and Kids", afterall...  The "fun stuff" is what we had to do some narrowing on in market.  There is so much to choose from that it is mind boggling.  And you really do want all of it.  Here are pics of some of the really great stuff that was out there:

Monster blankie and rattle from Angel Dear

Howdy Cows by Trumpette

Native shoes and Mad Pax

Socks and Bags from Trumpette

Super hero towels

It's going to take a week or two to sort through all of this.  Some will be based on availability.  Some will be based on who will sell to us at this stage in the game.  Either way, we're super stoked on how great the assortment is going to turn out.  Now, if we could just get ourselves together and decide on a web package we'll be on our way :)
