Life is one big photograph waiting for us to snap a pic. If only we took the time to pause, take a breath and appreciate how extraordinary the unextraordinary can be. Our daily surroundings are a visual wonderland. From the sparkle of icicles dangling from a tree, to the candy colors that hang above our heads during sunset.
This spring photorealistic printed fabrics are a top trend in children’s fashion. With prints as varied as nature, animals and common objects, we pay homage to the beauty of everyday life. – Jill Topol

Is your child feeling ugly in their UGG boots? Gross in their galoshes? Maybe it’s time to give their boots a makeover. Hanna Andersson’s Boot Sweaters are the answer. These adorable sweater boot muffs slip over the top of any boot and instantly bring new life to even the most boring rubber snowshoe. In your choice of panda or owl, these boot sweater creatures are so adorable your child might be tempted to cuddle with them. We recommend dusting off the snow first. – Jill Topol
