Bitsy hand-picked some favorite “back to school” items for your kiddos to be in tip-top shape for that first bus ride. We’re sure you will be excited to see the cool new picks for the 2016-17 school year!
Fun fact – with every purchase of The Kane Backpack, State Bags will hand-deliver a State Bag (loaded with essential tools for success) to one American child in need. (Psst – our personal fave is The Kane “Downtown”…it has a little extra spunk to it’s attitude!)
Anyone wear a uniform growing up?! Well, I did and was always so sad to leave my funky, personality-filled knee highs at home. Let us introduce you to Code Socks, a new company in the children’s wear world that is stealing our kiddos’ hearts and feet. Check out the funkiness on the bottom of these white and navy socks! Genius and oh-so-fun – they can still pass the dress code while adding a little bit of their own expression!
We know what you are thinking – another giveaway?! Yup…and this one is just in time for BACK TO SCHOOL!!!! We’ve recently come across the fabulous DABBAWALLA, a small Seattle-based company that offers adorably-designed and sustainably-made modern bags for kids. The bags are all insulated, eco-friendly and – wait for it – MACHINE WASHABLE! Each is designed with a European simplicity, but will attract likes from the littles for sure. Their collections include lunch bags as well as backpacks that are playful but functional and nicely priced.
Dabbawalla has been nice enough to team up with Bitsy to offer our readers a chance to WIN (their choice of) either the Penguin Backpack or Miss Mouse Backpack (both pictured above). Details on how to enter are available on BITSY’S INSTAGRAM, so head there now to get yourself on the list!
OMY is one of Bitsy’s fave-skis. The company screams inspiration + creativity. It is amazing how a black + white print can inspire the pants off of us!! For those of you unfamiliar with OMY check out their website for lots + lots of goodies.
Today we are excited to share OMY’s NEW TEXTILE collection! OMY has created a line of colorable cotton accessories including a 100% cotton backpack, artist belt, belly bag + pouch. All come with OMY’s washable markers, so the fun doesn’t end after one creative session because your little ones will get to create colorful wonderfulness after every wash! Whoop Whoop!

Today is a special day for Bitsy. Three years ago a very dear friend passed away on this date. She left us with a lot of touching messages, but one of the strongest is to always be happy. Her get-well symbol through her illness was a ladybug and after her passing it has remained a symbol to us all of the love she left in our hearts forever. She continues to grace us with her love – there have been many special occasions we’ve found a ladybug perched in a place where we can see her to let us know she is still with us. Those visits carry us through our everyday lives and remind us to be HAPPY. Today, Bitsy would like to share some of our favorite ladybug accessories for munchkins…may this serve as your reminder to live each day HAPPY!
