Bitsy Favorite for the Itsy…ROCKY RACOON APPAREL!

It is no secret that Bitsy loves Etsy. They are a “go-to” for us. It always feels like a bonus purchasing from Etsy, too, because it is a community of talented folks trying to make a living. So you really feel like you’re supporting something awesome, something creative.

Rocky Racoon Apparel on Etsy captured our attention first by their sweet and fun patterns and then as we dove in deeper we were giddy about the ease of their styles. True play clothing, but with a fun twist and personality. Girly, flirty tops and sweet styles for babies and toddlers…all in organic cotton and printed with non-toxic water-based ink prints. You can tell there is an attention to detail as each item is handmade. You just can’t go wrong here. Below are our top picks:

Rocky Racoon Apparel + Philomena Kloss Human Bear collaborated to create these adorable gifting sets. We’re obsessed and we’re keeping them in mind for our next baby gift or big brother/big sister gift!

Memory Lane by Meminio

With our house on the market and Lucy starting Kindergarten this year, we’re realizing we need to 1. consolidate and 2. organize. And, since at Bitsy we basically shop for a living, we took on the task of locating a good looking, smart organization system.  For some reason this category has been quite challenging…until…Meminio came into our lives.

Meminio is a British gifting company that creates lovely ways to organize your child’s memories. They are bringing us back to simpler times and helping us keep track of the things that are really important for our children. They have just launched their Memory Case in Cream. Lined with a nostalgic printed fabric, this beautifully decorated case is available in a small and large size in order to accommodate their first pair of shoes and hospital band to even their much adorned lovie (when the time comes! Tear.). Each case shares an option for personalization – a charming luggage tag that belts on to the case’s handle. What a perfect baby gift!

What we love most about the memory case (and, really, all of their products!) is that they are simply and stunningly designed so you can use them as decor in your child’s room, family or living room. This also helps (us!) with the problem of ‘not enough storage space’, so no need to find room for them in a closet!

Check them out – Meminio. We hope you enjoy your stroll down memory lane…we know your children will thank you when they take their trip in years to come…

Bitsy Favorite for the Itsy…Tia Cibani Kids!

Hi there, folks! HAPPY 2017!! Can you believe it, another year?! Yahoo! We can’t wait to dive in…

That being said, we thought we’d start this year off with a bang. A great big “Bitsy Favorite for the Itsy” bang! Tia Cibani is a brand we’ve been following since we first fell in love at a Playtime NY market show.  A veteran in the women’s wear market, Tia decided to dip into the children’s world and has since been crushing it! Her designs are playful and fun, frequently drawing from global inspiration which lends much enjoyment to the eye. Each piece is like a wearable piece of art. The heirloom quality and bright perspective are what won over our hearts. And each piece is special enough on its own, but also leaves room for your own personal styling as well. Tia Cibani Kids makes it easy while walking on the wild side! Her fabrics are insanely amazing and the way it all comes together really rocks our world.

Take a look at Tia’s brilliant collection on their (new!) website:
