Awesomeness by US manufacturers!

My kids really want the Fort by Cardboard Design. In fact, they are talking about getting it for Christmas already. The kids can paint, color, or decorate it any way they please… The boys have those little knights and pirates by Playmobil that could match perfectly with the fort…

Of course if you want something a little more permanent, you can always choose this castle – the King’s Castle (knights and horses not included) by TAG Toys. Made in the USA!

Last Christmas they got the My Very Own House from their uncle and auntie, which they absolutely LOVED! Thus, that became our very best-selling item during Christmas!  Of course, it being a “Cool Mom Picks” pick may have helped in that regard too.

Each time I start shopping for Christmas or a birthday, I always think of (naturally) buying American made items. It is actually quite difficult to find such items at big box stores; However, there are a few online shops that we adore and shop at (besides our own). There are a handful of websites you can visit that are directory types of made in the USA items. If you’re looking for something we do not offer, you can usually find it by using Google. But if it is something that is kid or baby or mama related (and made in the USA) and we don’t have it, please email us to request we carry it & we will do our best to get it!

Halloween Goodies, all Made in the USA

Check out our new Halloween arrivals! High quality items by brand names such as Olive Kids, Sweet Mady’s, Little Baron, Liliputians NYC, and many more bring you not only spunk and spice but peace of mind that your purchase is truly supporting the American economy in a larger way that one may realize.

We heart his So Posh Tutu by Miss Sugar Pops, the Lil Wicked tutu

We also love this Frankenstein t-shirt for boys by Liliputians NYC (also another fave of ours).

The Easter outfits I chose for the kids

So this Easter is the very first Easter the kids will be decked out in all US made apparel, with the exception for the shoes, which are made in Vietnam.

I got a little finicky and had a difficult time choosing as there are such great designs out there – I also wanted to stay in an affordable price range!

Here is what I chose for the boys – Made in the USA, of course (we sell this here)!

And shoes are from Payless (hey, there’s not much of a selection here in Soldotna, Alaska). In fact, it was between Payless and Fred Meyer’s. Fred Meyer’s did not have chocolate brown dress shoes in their sizes…

My boys had a choice between Dexter Boat Shoe or Newberry or this Smart Fit Oxford. I told them to keep in mind comfort too. What a steal at 13.99, on sale! Next year we’ll have to shop a little earlier so I can have time to shop online and get them shoes from this great European shoe boutique,  www.chicchickids.com.

And for the girls. I LOVE this dress, from Peanut Butter Princess Boutique. Bought it in March so we got their FREE shipping deal! $38.00 each:

We haven’t purchased the girl’s shoes yet. That is on the list for things to do for tomorrow. But if we could turn the clock back, I would totally get these dress boots made in Spain from Chic Chic Kids for the girls to go with their dress:

Or these dress shoes  also made in Spain by Chiquitin:

Will post Easter pics probably on Monday… Feel free to comment and share what you’ve gotten YOUR little ones!
