Whether you're preparing for holiday travel, gifting or just looking to put a smile on your little one's face, TODAY style editor and Bobbie.com's Bobbie Thomas highlights a few buzzworthy items for babies and kids.
First up, a collection of adorable paper doll-inspired t-shirts and totes for little girls and grown-up ones too. Each piece features a screen-printed namesake doll dressed in a velcro bathing suit. From a fanciful Ribbon Dress to a sparkling tulle Tulip Skirt and more, you can collect a wardrobe of mini, velcro-backed outfits created by up-and-coming designers from around the globe. These fun, interactive shirts allow you to dress up and re-invent your favorite top over-and-over ($12-$50, lottydotty.com).
Next, the world of Lazoo! It's a clever educational concept created by two dedicated dads in New York City who wanted to encourage imagination and independence in their children. Beyond their unique books (Holes! and Squiggles!), Lazoo's cheerful stretchy suits and rompers feature a cast of characters that are also available as plush toys.
From Bobu the monkey and Takumi the dinosaur to Miku the bunny and Junko the ballerina, there's something for everyone. Kids can also grow and interact with their pals online via games and apps for an all around adorable and educational experience ($16.99-$32.99, lazoo.com).
Lost My Lovey
Last but not least, if you've ever lost a stuffed animal as a child, or fear the the consequences, you understand how traumatic the situation can be. Enter LostMyLovey.com, an online lost and found service thought of by a sympathetic mom who's had her fair share of "where is it.." panic. Their classified-ad forum is free, and ID tags with unique codes are available to help little ones reconnect with their lovey and you with your peace of mind. ($8.95-$13.95, lostmylovey.com).
