    Brand Spotlight - Kenzo

    Kenzo Kids Brand Spotlight and Summer Picks 2019
    Posted on
    When it comes to brand introductions, there are a few more obscure names which might need highlighting in order to draw public attention to them. Kenzo is not one of those brands. Kenzo, which started out as a humble attempt to create fashionable designs with minimal resources has since exploded into a worldwide brand of perfumes, skincare products and clothing. The clothing lines themselves are not only designed for women, but also create items for men as well as the Kenzo Kids collection for fashion-conscious children. And while the brand name Kenzo might well be on its way to becoming a household word, the story behind the brand is less well known.

But since 2011 both of those distinguishing features have taken a back seat to Sister Jane. Based directly in the heart of Notting Hill, Sister Jane is an all English, all London label, producing some of the best contemporary vintage-feel clothing on the market.

    Best Classic Toys for Toddlers - Anthill Toys Costa Mesa
    Posted on

    The first five years of a child’s life are the most important for their development. Providing your children with toys and other learning aids is a great way to help foster learning and to ensure that this process continues unimpeded. Toys for one year olds and toys for two year olds should begin to explain complexities such as gravity and shapes, something that allows them to experiment through trial and error. These toys should also encourage social interaction between the parent and child, as the bulk of learning and cognitive development occurs through relationships. 

    So in an effort to provide fun and useful tools to aid your child in learning and create environments for positive relationship development, we’ve put together a list of some of the top toddler toys to give your child today.
