Every year as the holiday season approaches, I look through the designs we’ve made, reminisce about how much
fun the process was, and choose my holiday picks – items that remind me of the warmth, joy, and love of the season.

  1. This year my first holiday pick is our Egyptian Cotton Blanket. I have had these blankets on all of our
    beds for many years. I love how soft they are and how well they have withstood the test of time. I like
    that the detailed trim around the blanket is also made with organic cotton, so the trim is as soft as the blankets.
We don’t use any dyes or perfume, so they are just pure organic comfort. I remember when Esquire magazine
said our blanket is “The best blanket in the world,” our phone lines were flooded with men wanting to place orders.
Our office was excited by the recognition but being a baby company, it was funny to have men calling to order blankets
for themselves.  

    2. My second pick is our Veggie Crate, yes this item has been around forever (24 years to be exact) but its enduring
    lovability is exactly why I adore it so much.  It’s a classic toy that never goes out of style – sorta like your favorite t-shirt!
    My grandson Laith, who is almost two, loves playing with his veggie crate. He tries to put as many of his veggies
    in the crate as possible and counts as he takes them out. As he counts them he says “two, two, two” because that
    is the only number he can say.


    3. My third pick is our new Abigail Goose. I guess I would call this toy my labor of love, because it took us around 12
    prototypes to get it just right.  When Amer -  our master toy pattern maker - came to me with the 12th sample, I immediately
    fell in love. I designed Abigail to be long and flat so that it could be easily held and loved during nap time. Abigail is
    wonderfully cuddly and soft like a security blanket.
