Children’s Style Guide featuring The Dragon and The Rabbit

Can you believe that we are in the middle of April? The weather has been warming up here in Ontario. That means it’s time to The Dragon and The Rabbitshed the bulky winter clothing and slip into something lighter.

The Dragon and the Rabbit offers a beautiful collection of children’s clothing just in time for Spring. Started by New York designer Anjana Eapen-Sathaye, the company was named after the years in which her son and daughter were born.

After 17 years in women’s fashion, working for brands such as Calvin Klein, Emmanuel Ungaro, Polo Ralph Lauren and Tracy Reese, Anjana decided to try her hand at children’s clothing.

Being the mother of two toddlers herself, Anjana designs practical, easy-to-care clothing made from natural cotton fibers that are comfortable against your child’s delicate skins.

The versatile, comfy line of clothing for boys and girls offers everything from pants, shirts, casual tees, shorts and polos, to trendy dresses, and outerwear.

April 12th, 2015Toddler trucker hats

By Rose

Trucker Baseball Mesh Hat

 

Screen printed with a lightning bolt and the letters ABCD my daughter is rocking out in style in her new tongue-in-cheek, whimsical hat from Little Fit.

Available in pink and black, Little Fit’s ABCD Trucker Hat updates a timeless style with a graphic front panel and flat brim. Bringing lightweight comfort to a beloved classic, it is the perfect go-anywhere hat.

With summer soon upon us, I wanted a hat that I would not have to struggle with my daughter to get her to wear. Similar in design to Daddy’s Under Armour stretch mesh trucker cap, I have not had to struggle with my two year old daughter even once to keep her ABCD hat on. In fact, she insists on wearing it.

The bill of the hat blocks direct UV rays that strike her face. The bill of the hat also curves down toward her face offering an increased level of shielding for her cheeks. The hat features a breathable mesh back to keep her cool.

The hat is available in three size – Little (4-18 months), Big (18 months to 5 years) or Youth (5-10 years).We chose size Big for Miss P and it fits her nicely, leaving her room to grow.

Unfortunately, as with any baseball style hats, the hat does not provide adequate sun protection to her neck and chin. For this reason, I will be using sunscreen on the face – particularly to the areas the hat does not cover. This is just a little advice for those of you who may have a child like I do, who has decided that the only hat they will wear is a baseball hat.

April 11th, 2015MADiL Flip Flops

MADiL Flip Flops

By Tanya

Summer will be here before we know it and it will be time for us to turn to a great summer favorite, the flip flop. Thanks to  MADiL FlipsRachel Florio-Urso, I came across a new flip flop product from the US with interchangeable bands and charms! With MADiL, I can easily personalize my daughter’s flip flops to match her outfit of the day.

MADiL offers flip flops in several different colors, such as pink, teal, slate, white, and brown, which you then personalize by adding colorful bands and fun charms.

The bands are elasticized with a metal end, much like the end of a shoelace. By changing the bands you are able to create an entirely different look and style each time they are warn.

MADiL charms are available individually or in theme packages. The theme package I chose included a heart, a flower and a star, all with sparkly stones; a stylish fun addition to an already incredible flip flop. Adding a charm can be tricky, but once you do it a few times, you’ll get the hang of it rather quick. Read more…


April 11th, 2015Make a Dream Catcher

By Tanya

For over hundreds of years, dream catchers have been used to “catch” and trap bad dreams and foster good ones in their place. The Native American folklore legend is that the dream catcher would catch one’s dreams during the night. Hung near a window and it is said bad spirits or dreams would get caught in the dream catcher’s webbing and disappear with the morning sun.

Meanwhile, good dreams would find their way to the center of the dream catcher and float down the feather to sleeping children. Children would thus be protected from nightmares. Dream-catchers are also believed to bless the sleeping one with harmony and good luck to follow them throughout their lives.

Today, Dream-catchers serve as a symbol of Native American culture in general
