This WSJ article introduced me to a super cute line of "formal" clothes for little boys called Andy & Evan. The company's tag line is "for little gentlemen," which I love. I'm certain that the practicality of dressing up a little boy in anything fancy is nil, but they certainly look great all decked out and certain occasions lend themselves to wearing fancy attire (even if they are, as co-founder Jonathan Perl describes, simultaneously eating a crayon). The company was started by by two men who had worked at hedge funds lost their jobs in during the recession. You can find their clothes in 500 stores world-wide, including Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale's and FAO Schwarz. All images credit to Andy & Evan via Neiman Marcus.

Aren't these dresses from Wild Things Dresses the cutest? It seems to me that they'd work well for both Halloween and for just an adorable outfit to wear year-round! Thanks to L for sharing these with me - wish they came in my size so I could solve my Halloween costume dilemma. Oh - and while most of the items for sale are for girls, there is a cute pair of brown bear dungaree overalls for boys! All images credit to Wild Things Dresses.
I'm not a parent, but yesterday Rob told me about what seems like an amazing company - Toygaroo! Toygaroo offers an online toy rental system (similar to what Plum Baby Clothes offers for kid's clothes) whereby you add toys to your wishlist online and every other month you receive a certain number of toys based on your subscription package (details about packages here). When your kids tire of the toys, you return them to Toygaroo and receive new toys. There is a whole section about the sanitization process used by the company, which is obviously a concern.
You can watch an NBC news story about Toygaroo here. There is also a video on the website that highlights another great use of this service - you can have a box of your child's favorite toys delivered directly to your vacation destination so that the toys await you upon arrival (and you don't have to tote them on the airplane). Have any of you tried Toygaroo?
Do you know anyone heading off to summer camp soon? I loved my week at camp each summer and while seven days away from my parents seemed daunting on day one, by day seven I wanted to stay for another week (or two). These Junior Camp Postcards from Felix Doolittle are the perfect way for your camper to keep in touch.
