School Days

It's not even August, and already we have had so many back to school orders!  

It is an inexplicable annual phenomenon each summer just how quickly the sunny days turn into fall.  So we thought we might be able to help with our top back to school sellers.

Lunchskins are by far our most popular eco friendly back to school item.  Environmentally friendly and  dishwasher safe, Lunchskins are an easy way to reduce our carbon footprint.  Plus, they were developed by four Mom's.  We will be introducing four new designs in August, so stay tuned for updates.

Dabbawalla Bags are our most stylish back to school product.  Whether it be a lunch bag or a back pack, these bags are flying out the door.

Clementine Art supplies seem to be the choice for kids entering kindergarten or returning for grade one.  All Clementine Art supplies are naturally made too, so now allergy worries.

Our Jeeto allergy stickers and patches have been a surprisingly big seller.  What better way to ensure people take note of your little one's needs than  a patch on their back pack or a sticker on their desk.

Kinderville's Little Bites Storage Jars are a new product for us.  We're in love with them, and apparently you are too (we've already had to restock).  The lids on these jars do not come off unless they are meant too, which means no finding food bits at the bottom of their back packs (or my purse).

Back to school just isn't complete without a note from Mom.  Lunchbox love offers 8 volumes to choose from, each card with a lovely note on one side and some fun trivia on the other.

We hope this helps you get your littles suited up for school.  If you have any questions regarding any products, please don't hesitate to drop us a line.

Happy shopping,

The Theta Mom Community

If Theta Mom is a new term to you, then it is definitely a term that should be added to your daily vernacular.

Heather from Theta Mom is has created the sisterhood that's redefining motherhood.  And it is this kind of ingenuity that makes it such an honor to be featured in Theta Mom's community and marketplace.

Heather's mission does not only define what a Theta Mom is, but invites you to join her as a Theta Mom.

"What makes you a Theta Mom?
I invite you to join forces with me to revolutionize the way we think about our role as mothers. We need to begin the dialogue about what it truly means to be an authentic mom. Nobody said that motherhood would be easy. Theta Mom is the perfect space to share your story, your experiences, your life and your voice. Throughout this website, you will find that I share my life experiences as a Theta Mom which begins the conversation of how I live as a true, authentic mom."
A great big hug to Heather for the amazing review and for allowing us to be a part of such an important group.

Look What Flew in From Germany!

Snug has arrived!

Snug was founded in 2010 by Kerstin, and interior designer, and Berit, and architect.  These two ladies opened their small studio in Hanover Germany, where they create design products inspired by their own childhood memories.

The Snug songbird mobile is a collection of six beautiful wooden birds made from all natural materials.  Each bird is handmade from two layers of colored wood.

Simple, fresh and fluid, the Songbirds Mobile is a work of art that can be enjoyed for all of childhood.
