It happens no matter how old they are, they always seem to get bored with their "new" toys about six weeks after having them. They play with them and play with them and then are no longer interested. Then what? Now you can exchange toys every few weeks with the new monthly subscription service, Spark Box Toys. To start you fill out a short questionnaire about your child including their age, gender, likes and dislikes then the toy experts pick four or more educational toys to be sent to your child in their box that month. Starting at $24 a month for the subscription for babies 6 months to 4 years, the toys are unique and aren't your typical toys that can be found at big box retailers. Shipping is always free and your box includes a return label and also product description cards for each toy and playtime ideas. What a great idea for the kid that gets easily bored with their toys -- it will be like their birthday comes every month!

When my little girl was born 12 weeks ago, I received a few pairs of shoes and she hasn't even gotten to wear one pair yet. She definitely can't walk but there's something about leaving her little toes naked that just doesn't sit right. Thankfully there's the invention of Toe Blooms which one mom created when she realized the same thing -- there's just not enough out there to dress-up those cute little chubby baby feet. Made for newborn girls from 0 to 12 months, Toe Blooms are available in two styles: Blooming Toes, which loop around the toe, and Blooming Wraps, which wrap around the foot. Made with flowers, gems and the highest quality material to keep your little one's toes stylish, I think these are the perfect gift for any newborn girl.

It is safe to say that French women have effortlessly chic fashion down to a perfect science. They seem to be able to make even a bateau tee and skinny jeans elegant with a few key pieces, one of which is often the cap toe ballet flat. This spring, for both adults and children, footwear designers are contributing to the Parisian trend with many versions of this versatile flat. In classic black and white all the way to shocking neon colorblocking, there's a cap toe style for every age and every style. It's a simple way to add panache to every ensemble, even if it's just jeans and a tee.

Mom won't be the only one wearing bright colored jeans this season because little girls everywhere will be happy to see their own favorite colors on jeans in their size too. Purple, pink, neon yellow, mint and navy blue are all available and will look so cute on your mini-me for a one-on-one shopping trip or perhaps a mommy and me lunch date.

Bold jewelry is on trend this season and nothing says bold better than a cuff bracelet. Go for a chic double-wrap studded bracelet in the year's hottest color, tangerine, or go for a more classic cuff look in solid gold or hammered silver to make your ho-hum outfit really shine.
