8 spring fashion favorites for kids (and the Best Baby Sunglasses Around)!

By Scott Morris

8 spring fashion favorites for kids


Ro·Sham·Bo Baby sunglasses
 

By Jackie McGoey

Digital Editor

Springtime is probably my favorite time of year when it comes to fashion. Kids ditch the heavy winter coats in favor of floral prints, polka dots and bright rain boots. Here’s what all the cool kids are wearing this season. Plus, a little something for mom, too!

kidpik.com

kidpik

I couldn’t have discovered kidpik.com at a better time. My daughter is totally into fashion right now and, without hesitation or prompting, would describe her style as “fabulous.” But even if your girl is more sporty, glam or modest, the beauty of kidpik is that it’s completely tailored to her. Girls (sizes 4-14) can choose which colors, patterns and styles they love to wear and within a few days, a box of clothes and shoes arrives at the door. Parents with commitment phobia will love that there’s no subscription fee, shipping is free and you only pay for what you keep. However, if you do decide to keep the whole box, you get a 30 percent discount. I’d call that pretty fabulous.

 

The average kidpik.com box retails for $75.

Umi Shoes

 

umi

Come spring, kids can’t wait to ditch the closed-toe shoes and set their piggies free. Cute sandals that are comfortable and well-made are worth their weight in gold. Add in the fact that Umi shoes are made from eco-friendly materials and genuine leather and I’m planning on my girls living in them all season long. In my house, we’re loving the Celia and Cora styles. And boys will turn heads (and still be able to play rough and tumble) in the Mason and Nolan styles.

 Umi Shoes retail for $50+.

Picklez by AC Lens glasses

picklez

As a proud member of the four-eyes club, it’s exciting to see how far eyeglasses designs have come. I think back to the bent up, wire-rimmed frames I began wearing in third grade and I cringe. Kids today are so lucky they have cooler options like the new Picklez line from AC Lens. Bright colors and fun, trendy shapes allow kids to express their personalities. They even come in non-prescription lenses for those kids who like the playful look of glasses but don’t have the medical need to wear them. Best of all, they’re super durable (a must with kids) and the scratch resistant lenses come with a protective UV coating.

 

Picklez glasses retail for $49.95.

Glitzies hair stickers

glitzies

Any fashionista will tell you that if the ‘do isn’t right, nothing is. Glitzies stick-on hair jewels add a bit of shine and shimmer to everyday hairstyles. Silver sparkles accent fishtail braids, pearls add sophisticated glam to your girl’s top knot and try cheetah-print hearts for when she’s really feeling adventurous.

 Glitzies hair stickers retail for $9.95.

ro.sham.bo baby sunglasses

roshambo2

If babies in tiny sunnies don’t make you smile, you’ve got a cold, cold heart. Beyond upping your little’s cuteness factor, Ro·Sham·Bo Baby is making sure those baby blues (or browns or greens) are protected right from the start. Their stylish kids' glasses offer 100 percent UVA and UVB protection and are light, flexible and virtually unbreakable (seriously, just check out this video). A portion of all sales benefits the Autism Research Institute in San Diego and just in case you’re not already crushing hard, the shades come in names like “Kelly Kapowski” (hot pink), “Ice Ice Baby” (bright white) and “McFly” (tomato red). Be still my ‘90s heart.

Ro·Sham·Bo Baby stylish kids' glasses and sunglasses retail for $20.

Runchkins.com

runchkins

Kids seem to grow out of clothes faster than you can blink sometimes. Runchkins--a new personal shopping service based in Chicago--promises to buy back their items once your child outgrows them. Unheard of! Here's how it works: For a nominal subscription fee, hand-picked items for girls and boys (up to age six) are delivered to your door. Choose what you love and send back what you don’t. Simple! Prices are comparable to higher-end boutiques, but keep this on your radar for the future: you can soon choose to receive gently-used items in your box, which will reduce the final cost to you significantly.

 

The average Runchkins outfit retails for $88.

Doodle Pants

doodlepants

Your kiddos will have the cutest bums in Chicago in Doodle Pants leggings. And as we’ve all seen, spring in Chicago can mean snow (really, Mother Nature?), so having a few options to keep those chunky legs warm is a good idea. The 75+ designs are fun and creative, and most importantly, they’re comfy, with extra room in the seat (perfect for cloth diapers!). If you love them, you’re in good company; celebs such as Olivia Wilde, Jessica Simpson and Jenna Dewan-Tatum do, too.

 Doodle Pants retail for $24.99+.

Skylar Luna organic loungewear

skylarluna

Nobody, kids included, wants to be uncomfortable when they’re sleeping. Skylar Luna’s short sleeve pajamas sets are perfect for warm spring nights. Wrap your kids up in softer-than-soft Turkish organic cotton as they drift off to sleep. The sets are so cozy in fact, don’t be surprised if, come morning, your kids want to stay in their jammies all day long.

 Skylar Luna organic loungewear retail for $30+.

BZees shoes

BzeesDream

Chasing after toddlers, running behind new bike riders fresh off training wheels and walking big kids to school. Face it: moms have to be on their feet a lot. BZees line of sporty footwear aims to make that time as comfortable as possible. The lightweight slip-ons, strappy sandals and wedges (my personal favorite) are made with a special air-infused outsole and free foam footbed which make you feel like you're walking on air. Say goodbye to aching feet at the end of the day. Bonus: They're machine washable!

BZees retail for $59+.

CARING CAUSES: RO·SHAM·BO BABY AND SURFERS HEALING AUTISM CHARITY

By Scott Morris

Ro·Sham·Bo Baby, the leading brand for flexible glasses frames for kids and infants, is proud to announce the formation of a new charitable partnership with Surfers Healing, a non-profit organization committed to aiding children on the autism spectrum by providing surfing lessons in a safe and comfortable environment.  

The partnership is a natural fit: The Ro·Sham·Bo Baby company name is derived from the rock, paper, scissors game most of us played as kids - and this game is actually proven to have a calming effect on kids with autism.

Pro surfer Israel Paskowitz founded Surfers Healing because his son, Isaiah. has autism, and when he struggled with meltdowns and sensory overload, riding the waves with his father calmed him like nothing else.  The founders of Ro·Sham·Bo Baby grew up in the beach and surfing culture and love what Surfer's Healing is doing, so a percentage of all their sales sold in 2016 will go to supporting the inspiring work of Surfers Healing.

Surfers Healing has been at it for over fifteen years, and we hope we can be a very small part in helping them continue for another fifteen. Each year, Surfers Healings’ volunteer-staffed camps give over 4,500 children with autism and their families a fun, engaging day at the beach. Attending a Surfers Healing camp positively impacts children with autism, instilling confidence and calm. It also can have a profound impact on the parents. Autism parents are always told what their children cannot do, but at Surfers Healing, it’s all about what their kids can do.

Ro•Sham•Bo Baby Sunglasses – Protect Their Eyes and Your Shades

By Scott Morris

Ro•Sham•Bo Baby Sunglasses – Protect Their Eyes and Your Shades

Before you read this kids' sunglasses review, let us just say how delighted we are that Everyday Men gave this shoutout to us and our bendable baby sunglasses!

From Everyday Men.

Saw the picture and thought “Nice sunglasses!” huh? Luckily for you, Ro•Sham•Bo Baby makes some pretty nice adult sunglasses too, so don’t fret. This post, however, is more “everyday carry for the everyday dad.” As winter is on the retreat and the summer approaches, we all bust out our shades. Although, for the parents out there with babies – your shades are in grave danger. My son, just about 10 months old, seems to be on a never-ending quest to take and destroy my glasses and sunglasses. So, for the sake of my (slightly more expensive) sunglasses, and protecting my son from harmful UV rays (first priority of course), there are Ro•Sham•Bo Baby's bendable baby sunglasses.

RSBB shades are, of course, for your baby – which solves the “I have to take dad’s” problem. They are also durable – and not just durable in the traditional sense of the word – these shades are nearly (if not completely) baby-proof. You can check out a video of the creator trying to destroy the frames himself on their website – to no avail. This solves the “find and destroy” problem. Additionally, they are bpa free and small parts compliant (fancy way of saying there are no bad chemicals and no small parts that might fall off and be a choking hazard for your little one!), and block 100% of UVA/B rays. Better still, they are guaranteed for a year against any breakage, and should your little one lose a lens, they’ll replace it (music to parents’ ears). Else, a portion of every sale goes directly to autism research at the Autism Research Institute in San Diego, California. Learn more and see the full line up of baby, junior, and adult shades here.

Baby Sunglasses and Surfing Just Makes Sense

By Scott Morris

Baby Sunglasses and Surfing Just Makes Sense

The Best Baby Sunglasses and Surfing in Sourthern California!

ro∙sham∙bo baby is proud to announce the formation of a new charitable partnership with the Surfers Healing charity, a non-profit organization committed to aiding children on the autism spectrum by providing surfing lessons in a safe and comfortable environment. The partnership is a natural fit: ro∙sham∙bo baby is a family run company in San Diego, California, and the founders grew up enjoying the benefits the beach and surf culture can afford. As we have done with our other autism charities, a percentage of all sales from our kids' sport sunglasses sold in 2016 will go to supporting the inspiring work of Surfers Healing. And if you want to make sure that Junior's glasses stay on even when tumbling in the waves, check out our kids' glasses adjuster and head strap!

Each year, Surfers Healings’ volunteer-staffed camps give over 4,500 children with autism and their families a fun, engaging day at the beach. Many children with autism struggle with sensory overload; simple sensations can overwhelm them. The weightlessness and rhythms of the ocean offer a therapeutic experience, a respite from the constant assault on their senses. As their website puts it:

Through the simple act of riding waves together, we’re defying the status quo. When we help kids get up on a board, we’re challenging preconceived notions of capability. When we encourage participants to dive in, we’re empowering them to engage the world. And when we ride the waves together, we’re affirming that every person is a gift.

Attending a Surfers Healing camp positively impacts children with autism, instilling confidence and calm. It also can have a profound impact on the parents. Autism parents are always told what their children cannot do, but at Surfers Healing, it’s all about what their kids can do.

Surfers Healing has been at it for over fifteen years, and we hope we can be a very small part in helping them continue for another fifteen. For more information or to get involved, visit www.surfershealing.org.
