6. Hello Kitty Hello Spring
This adorable book from Abrams came to me on a cold wintry day. So, now as the brighter, sunny days reflect the pages in this Hello Kitty book, we can all finally say, Hello Spring. Perfect for the littlest to biggest Hello Kitty fan, this book embraces the best aspects of the season, highlighting them in such a way that Hello Kitty does best.
7. Ruum t-shirt
New this year, Ruum is finding a way to make classic and modern styles merge in our kids’ closets. The company once known as 77Kids was bought by the former head of The Children’s Place, so expect to find fun, functional and sometimes funky clothes from Ruum (sounds like room). Tees like this one showcase the fun fashion that Ruum embodies.
8. Washi tape
I’m absolutely obsessed with washi tape! This paper tape that comes in a myriad of designs can be used for virtually anything—crafts, decor, day-to-day usage and more. We currently use washi tape for labeling and a number of crafts. You can find washi tape in crafts stores and on Etsy.
9. Little Green Shampoo and Body Wash
We test out a lot of kid bath products, and one that we’re currently loving is this Little Green Shampoo and Body Wash. I received several samples of this line in a swag bag a few years ago, and recently learned that this is a local product, as in the creator’s spa is 2 miles away. What’s great about this combo shampoo and body wash is that it cleans everything without drying the hair our skin out. There’s no parabens, allergens or sulfates and is formulated for sensitive skin like my guys. Love this line and can’t wait to try out the other products.
10. Trash Pack Garbage Truck
If you asked me what toys were going to be big in my house last year, I honestly would have never guessed it would be trash. And when I say ‘trash,’ I’m of course referring to Moose Toys’ Trash Pack. Despite their small size, these toys are huge in my house. I wrote about them around Halloween and how we gave them out for our Trunk or Treat, and like the Pied Piper, the neighborhood kids still ask me if I have more. So, when Christmas time came around, Santa remembered this and gifted Biggie with a Garbage Truck to go with said Trash Pack. Our Trash Pack Garbage Truck came with Series 3 Trashies like Putrid Boot and Scrummy Screen. Collecting things didn’t get big for us until last year, so the Trash Pack has become a mainstay around here. The garbage truck complements the collectibles and is often used to transport and store these eraser-like toys.
And because the Trash Pack has moved onto series 4, be on the look out for a review of their latest and greatest.
