  27. And I would like to nominate these Custom/Personalized Cloth Dolls with hand-painted faces by (me) Rachel of HenAndChick. They are perfect for this event, because I have seen them loved by kids of all ages (including those that are kids at heart), both boys and girls. I've received feedback from mom's of kids who've dragged them everywhere with them, and "big kids" who enjoy their company while sitting on the bookshelf. Plus, every kid should have a doll who looks just like them!

  29. I would like to nominate this sailboat scarflette

    http://www.etsy.com/listing/95345500/sailboat-scarflette-for-baby-and-kids-12

    The reason I like them is because they are just the right length for kids, the button keeps them in place with any strangulation hazard. The cotton knit lining makes them just right for sensitive baby skin and the applique gives numerous customization options. I think these are very useful and fun accessory.

    Thanks for the opportunity,

  40. My aim is to get everyone creating keepsake Art one fingerprint at a time!

    I would like to nominate my FingerTips Craft Packs. Especially my Rulers. I have seen 10 year old boys carefully creating their ruler and being very proud of the results and more importantly with themselves and what they have achieved.

    http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.147437628668270.38111.118351108243589&type=3

    The Concept Behind FingerTips

    From an early age I have always enjoyed Art and my relationship with Art has always been a healthy one. I realised early on in my life, while trying to cope with my dyslexia, that Art was a language in its' own right and a way I could be heard while trying to figure out the baffling English language! A creative mind is not a linear one.

    Let’s go back to basics....with our finger...no I have not gone mad you can really create refined Art with your fingerprint. In fact it is what our company FingerTips concept is based on!

    I have created many designs and products where the recipient’s fingerprint brings the Artwork to life. The finished Artwork is a keepsake in it's own right.

    FingerTips is a tool for people to reconnect, in a positive way, with Art and have fun in the process. Once you have seen the amazing Art you can create with your fingerprint in a simple but effective way hopefully you will have gained some faith and confidence in your ability too create!

    FingerTips Designs are suitable for all ages and abilities.

    My boys love to ride in the wagon and this was made to keep them a little more comfortable while enjoying the occasional bump in the road.

    I think these are fantastic wooden clogs modified for a fun modern toddler world. Absolutely fabulous.

  64. I would like to nominate TrashN2Tees, where I offer a sustainable alternative to funky custom and one of a kind clothing for kids. Each tshirt is an original design, drawn and cut by hand- and NEVER duplicated. Everything is made using 100% reclaimed materials- I hope by rockin' recycled threads we can encourage and inspire others to consume less and recycle more. I love working with my customers to make their OOAK tshirts but I also have ready made items available in a variety of sizes & styles. If you're looking for clothing that makes a statement and reflects your childs individual personality- look no further!

    Here is a recent collaborative project: http://www.etsy.com/listing/94559065/rainbow-mustache-cloud-newborn-set-knit and you can more at http://www.trashn2tees.com

  67. I would like to nominate my Children's Gold Canvas Shoes
    By: Courtney Archibald

    I'm nominating them because the description for this category said that it should be something that kids would absolutely love and my twin daughters LOVE these shoes. And it doesn't hurt that they're adorable.

    Here's the link to my blog where I posted about them a while back:
