ZipperBack Gloves
ZipperBack GlovesDid you know that children’s hands are not the same as adult hands? The space between the thumb and the forefinger on a child’s hand is up to a half-inch smaller. Yet most "children's" gloves are merely shrunken down versions of adult gloves. That's why we were so excited to learn about VIP gift bag ZipperBack Gloves. Their patented design is unique in the fact that it places the thumb opening closer to the finger openings. The zippered backs not only provide for an easier time in putting the gloves on, but also provide for a more sleek and secure closure than a velcro back. And because the gloves can fully open, they can be washed and dried. Most importantly, ZipperBack Gloves are safer because they fit little hands. They don't have the excess fabric at the tips of the fingers so if a child were to get their hand caught in a rope-tow, nylon pull on a sled, or in the door of a gondola, they will feel that they are caught and be able to react and pull their hand away. If the glove does get caught, there is no strap cinching the glove on at the wrist so they can get out easily.

yubo lunch boxes

Great ideas are often born from necessity. While making lunches for their two daughters, yubo creators became frustrated with the amount of plastic baggies used every day. The typical store bought lunchboxes they owned were impossible to clean, they collected crumbs and foul old-food odors. Worst of all, their kids were over the novelty of their lunchboxes less than a week after buying them! That was the start of a journey to re-invent the lunchbox. And yubo was born - a lunchbox that is customizable,yubo interactive, fun, flexible, functional, washable, ecological, colorful, beautiful, and of course, very cool and loaded with personality. At last, a lunchbox that’s simple, clean, functional, eco-friendly and fun!

Baby Zoo Sleep TrainerBaby ZooWhat's a sleep trainer? Imagine giving your child Momo the monkey. At bedtime, show your child that Momo is going to sleep. With one push on the button you close Momo’s eyes. You whisper: “Momo is sleeping. Be quiet now otherwise you wake him up.” Then you explain that as long as Momo is sleeping he/she needs to stay quiet and try to catch some more sleep. Only when Momo opens his eyes, it is time to wake up! This unique and cute Sleep Trainer by Baby Zoo shows in an intuitive way when your child is allowed to get out of bed or still needs to catch some sleep: Eyes Closed – “I should be sleeping”, Eyes Open -”Rise and shine!” Each Sleep Trainer is an Analogue & Digital clock with opening/closing eyes at the time you set. Momo makes a jungle alarm sound, with adjustable volume (or you can switch off completely).
