strum and get it

There are some sweet sounds coming from this tee…

yporque Rock + Roll Tee with Sound, $

Can you hear it?! This tshirt can rock out.

Like a guitar.

How awesome.

Check out this tee and others (!) from Yporque.

YPORQUE.COM

Bitsy knows a lot of little musicians that would love to rock out to this one!! We met these guys a few months back and let us tell you that they have a lot of soul in their products. Each “with sound” tee comes with a little sound device which is located in a small black bag that hangs from the tee and can be removed (for washing, etc). The device has a button that your child can press to hear a tune. You can also sample the sounds of each tee on their website.

ROCK ON!

bitsy favorite for the itsy…TUCHINDA!

Now this is one to brag about.

Tuchinda. A New York based kidswear brand that launched in 2012. Tuchinda uses European + Japanese fabrics along with sophisticated sewing techniques to create decadent, soft collections. This is clothing your children’s children will wear – elegant, inspirational, timeless. In the words of Tina Tuchinda…wearable art. Tina’s spring + summer 2015 line is going to knock your socks off (ours are already off).

Inspired by Tina’s travels to Europe – specifically her favorite place, the famous pastry chef Pierre Hermé in Paris – each item is very special in its own way just like Pierre’s delicious pastries (especially his unusual macaron flavor combinations). “The soft pastel palette and material choice of cotton gauze and light poplins in the collection mimics the light and airy feel of these special pastries.” You will adore seeing this collection on your little one.

We find it so fitting that the name Tuchinda translates to “a closet of precious stones” in Thai. There is a sweet + precious taste to this brand, specifically this collection. Tina’s beautiful sense of style transcends through each and every individual piece. Bitsy is honored and excited to share a sample. All pieces are now available for purchase on Tuchinda’s website, so please head over to TUCHINDA and see more for yourself.

bump it up

Last night Bitsy was honored to be included in an amazing event…

Lindsay Pinchuk of Bump Club and Beyond along with Jamie Grayson The Baby Guy NYC hosted an incredible evening at Magic Beans in Fairfield, CT. Gearapalooza – the ultimate baby gear + registry event – is exactly what mamas-to-be and new mamas need! The evening allowed expectant mamas and new mamas the opportunity to check out baby gear, network and basically get excited about what is to come. Baby gear vendors were on-hand to share about their product features and answer questions (oh boy – or girl! – did we learn a lot!). Jamie shared an incredible low-down of his extensive (and beyond impressive!) knowledge on all baby gear. Let’s just say the man is amazing. You MUST check out his website.

In case you don’t know – Bump Club and Beyond is the first and only social event company for expectant and new moms in Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, TX and Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN. If you don’t see your neck of the woods listed here, don’t fret! Bump Club’s website shares a large network for moms around the country (world!) to share, learn, chat, etc. Also, Lindsay and her team host Gearapaloozas nationwide, so definitely check out Bump Club’s website to find an event near you.

Jamie Grayson is The Baby Guy NYC. Aside from being hysterical and super fun to be around, his passion lies in baby gear. Yup. He knows EVERYTHING about everything baby gear. His website should always be in your back pocket. Trust us, we’re not sure how we did this mommy thing without him ever!

Gearapalooza was held at the Magic Beans store in Fairfield, CT. This is their first store outside of Massachusetts. They, too, have a wonderful website you can check out (and a blog – Spilling the Beans), but if you live locally (MA or CT) definitely pop in to a store. We were completely enamored with the Magic Beans staff’s knowledge, friendliness and passion. Your shopping experience will be one of the best ever, we promise.

Bitsy thanks all of these folks for sharing their knowledge, experiences + passions with the rest of us. We love being a part of something marvelous!!!!
