For the fashionable little BIRD...
Minnetonka Moccasins - Riley, Grey, Size 0
An iconic Minnesota brand established in 1946, we knew we had to include Minnetonka Moccasins in our baby box. Super soft suede with an elastic opening, these grey booties are easy on and off so you and your little are out the door in no time! Perfect addition the baby's wardrobe as we transition into fall.
FOR THE TEETHING BABE...
Senn and Sons - Teether
Founded by local illustrator / designer Kim Senn, Senn & Sons is a creative studio making children's products, textiles, home decor and paper goods. Inspired by the energy of little ones and the precious moments of family life, Kim's designs are filled with playful designs and bursts of color. Made from organic maple polished with beeswax and olive oil, this custom mint green teether is beautifully designed and will soon become an essential for your diaper bag.
So you can keep your LITTLE ONE warm...
Colored Organics - Swaddle Blanket & Beanie
A mama on a mission, Amanda Barthelemy, founder of Colored Organics, wants to help others make the switch to ethically sourced organic fashion. Not only can you feel good about purchasing their products, but they're also incredibly high quality and so adorable. We're featuring not one but two products from their baby collection - the swaddle blanket and classic knotted hat - both made from some of the softest cotton we've ever felt.
Toss this in your diaper bag and use on the go...
Worker B - All-Purpose Balm Stick
By harnessing the potency of bee-created ingredients straight from the hive, Worker B has crafted the very best of what nature, and the bees, have to offer. Made with beeswax, olive oil, raw honey, and other natural ingredients, this stick is perfect to spot treat chapped lips, rough elbows, or boo boos. We love the subtle and beautiful beeswax scent - perfect to toss in your diaper bag and use on the go.
Every baby BIRD needs this...
Manhattan Toy Company - Plush Bunny
Because every baby needs a soft little bunny, right? The Manhattan Toy Company began in - you guessed it - Manhattan - but was purchased and now is headquartered here in Minneapolis. It was a tough call because they have so many adorable toys, but we landed on this classic cream plush bunny because we all had that bunny or bear or lamb that we just couldn't let out of our sight, right?
THE PERFECT ADDITION TO YOUR BABY ROOM GALLERY WALL...
Cait Courneya - Little Bear Card
Local artist Cait Courneya is well known for her fashion illustrations and textile design. We are especially falling for her neck scarves - stay tuned for these in an upcoming box! We came across this sweet dopey bear and fell in love. Originally designed as a print for a baby room, we had Cait create a custom greeting card for us which can still be framed and added to any adorable baby room gallery wall.
