TODAY style editor Bobbie Thomas shares some great finds for the little ones:Pediped If there is anything I love more than shoes, it would have to be adorable, tiny shoes in sweet little boxes. My admitted soft spot for children's footwear was taken to a new level when I heard about Pediped's washable kicks for kids. With options for newborns to 9-year-olds, the line was originally developed by a mom in search of stylish, supportive shoes for her daughter. Today, the brand promotes healthy foot development and has more than 36 different styles and colors to choose from that can go from wearing right into the washer, making kid cleanup just a little easier. ($34-$48;

KidKupzWith a tagline that reads "Takes the ick out of sick," I was immediately drawn to the genius behind KidKupz. Perfect for anyone who has ever struggled to get a little one (or even a big one) to take their medicine, the KidKupz are cleverly lined with sour candy crystals along the rim, giving the not-so-great-tasting liquid a sweeter appeal. Since up to half of children taking liquid medications do not do so properly, the KidKupz aim to ensure that kids take their recommended dosages every time with the help of flavors including sour cherry, blue raspberry, watermelon and green apple. ($4.99;

Color Me TrendyFashionistas big and small will fall for "Color Me Trendy," a fashion-themed book created by three sisters — Rada, Ljubica, and Jasmina Radmanovic. With 50 sketches waiting for a creative touch, this coloring book is a great way to introduce girls to style as a form of self-expression. ($14.99;
