That’s when she decided to take bow-making into her own hands and Henny and Coco was born! Known for their superb quality and whimsical headbands, crowns and jewelry, Henny and Coco creations add fun elegance to your mini’s everyday.

Kid + Kind taps into the spirit of discovery that makes childhood so magical.

Mom-boss, Eleanor Cullen, is the brains behind “We Might Be Tiny.” Really, she’s our savior for preventing mealtime messes with a placemat design that is not only functional, but also looks good! The “placies” are non-slip so your little one can practice eating without dinner ending up on the floor. Hallelujah! They are also non-toxic, food-grade silicone and—best of all—they are dishwasher safe. Modern, minimalistic, and available in a variety of sweet colors, We Might Be Tiny deserves a big round of applause.

In 2009 they founded Country Roads Foundation, a volunteer-based non-profit whose mission is to give inner city kids a chance to go to summer camp and guide them to college. After seeing countless children carrying their belongings in trash bags, Scot and Jacq launched STATE Bags, merging their compassionate philosophy with fashion. STATE Bags is a brand with a big purpose. For every bag purchased, STATE hand-delivers a backpack full of supplies to an American child in need.
Samantha of Modern Burlap
Founder and owner, Samantha Lischka is a mom-boss of three. When her first son was born, she wanted to create an organic and stylish swaddle blanket with monochrome black and white graphics (known to be so good for infant eyes and brain development)… and that she did. As she ventured out with her baby, people wanted to know where she got it and how they could get one. And voila! Modern Burlap began (in high demand). The sleek and modern designs support the everyday, trendy mama, and is perfect for tummy time!
