You’ll Thank Me…
We all know I attend trade shows right?
We all know that when I am at shows I am primarily looking at gear, right?
We all know I am really not that into clothing, right?
So I am somewhat floored that I am writing about a line of clothing. Well, it’s MUCH more than clothing. It’s some of the cutest, most well-made, and BOY-FRIENDLY clothing I’ve ever seen.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Finn + Emma. I was made aware of their line via Twitter, and that they would be attending the New York International Gift Fair. Again, I was first uninterested because I assumed it was just clothing. I was walking up an aisle and happened upon their display. You can call Anna, the owner, and ask her how much I flipped out. The clothing is wicked cute, organic and not very expensive (prices for boys range from $20 for a pair of pants to $45 for a reversible scooter jacket!). The colors are terrific and eye-catching, but muted enough where you won’t be ashamed to have your wee ones seen in them. The snaps on all items are wood-covered, which is a GORGEOUS detail. There is an entire line with Vespas on it AND there are coordinating accessories!! I mean, seriously???
One item that really caught my eye was the Play Gym. Made of birch wood and finished with a non-toxic stain, this is a piece that is destined to be an heirloom. Be honest: how many of us cringe when forced to purchase a play gym that looks like it was attacked by Rainbow Brite? There is an assortment of interchangeable wooden toys and wool-stuffed animals made from organic cotton that dangle from the arch. Remember those snaps? Well, you can attach these toys to anything: stroller bar, baby carrier, high chair, your dog’s leg (well, that might not be a good idea), and they make really lovely non-toxic teething toys.
I am BEYOND thrilled to bring this line to all of you, and I am so excited to see where this company goes in the future. They’re really great people, and the sky’s the limit!!!
What? You thought you’d get this far and maybe not have a chance to win anything? WRONG!!!!! One of you has a chance to win your own Play Gym, in your choice of Boy or Girl theme!!! Contest begins Sept 12 and ends Sept 27 at MIDNIGHT EST!!! GOOD LUCK!!!!
