Mommy is Moody: Oh Where I would be shopping if I had any money left - December 8, 2009
Raspberry Kids: Vancouver-based, green, and carrying everything for toddlers and babies, Raspberry Kids is an online boutique with reasonable pricing and ethical business practices. We’ve received samples of their merchandise in the past that I’ve reviewed and I continue to covet their stock to this day because of it. If I had five 20s to drop, I’d buy Zoë this Kuki Kids Apron to wear while she helps me bake, a ladybug lunch box, the every day kit and this long sleeved top.

Rambings of TJR - Follow Friday: November 27, 2009
This week I have three mom focused blogs to recommend. Raspberrykids.com Run by Sue Sinclair this blog provides helpful tips, news about interesting products and the odd update on Sue's crazy life as Chief Executive Mom of Raspberrykids.com. Sue is one of the few people I have met who really gets customer service. She is all about building relationships. To many it may seem she spends a lot of effort of 'non-sales' oriented relationships. But this is what she gets that other don't. She is building loyal relationships and that always translates into a stronger business in the long run. Plus, she is just so darn nice. @raspberrykids

Sweetmama.ca: Sin vs. Sweet Wrap it UP, June 29, 2009
We love a garment our kids can put on by themselves (we’re not sure why taking it off is never a problem). But these whimsical capes do more than just keep them cozy on a summer’s eve. We see a whirling Super Girl, a prancing Little Pink Riding Hood and a regal Queen of Pinkdom in our near future. (Homemade sceptres not included.) Finally, a piece of clothing they’ll love putting on. Read more: http://www.sweetmama.ca/national/sin_vs_sweet/9837/wrap_it_up/#ixzz0JrORgQYn&C

Something Ventured: A business startup journal, June 24, 2009
I love finding the perfect present and while I have long been an on-line shopper, most of my unique presents or party dresses have been purchased on American websites. There were a few toy stores that I have used when we lived in Ontario, but I find it difficult to justify shipping something across the country. Enter the Raspberry Kids website.

Wet Coast Women: Sistah's are doin it for Themselves - May 31, 2009
The one thing the Internet has been great at - for me anyway - was showing me how many enterprising women there are out there. Women are taking control, creating their own businesses, staying on top of trends and jumping in where they can showcase their skills and qualifications. In Vancouver, this seems to be very true and very real. I am in awe of the enterprising women I keep meeting here.

Inhabitots: Ecotronic Eco Rocket - May 27, 2009
We’re already fans of Ecotronic battery-free toys, (remember the adorable Eco-friendly Handpump Penguin Night Light)? Now there’s even more to love. Ecotronic has a new Eco Rocket available, which is an ultra cool toy for green, outer space loving kids. Kids charge up the Eco Rocket via its hand crank, and listen to a countdown as they watch the launchers power up. They can then actually see the rocket blast off! Battery-free flashing lights and sounds are included, and the hand crank stores neatly inside the rocket body. Ecotronic also uses biodegradable packaging with no dangerous ties or wires. Previously, Ecotronics had mainly been available from UK shops, but now Canadian based Raspberry Kids is carrying the Ecotronic line as well.

Momcafe Blog: Shop until you drop but never leave home - May 20, 2009
Even though I’m an email and internet junkie I’ve never really caught onto the online shopping spree. I’m constantly surfing different websites looking for stuff to buy, what the best deals are, but instead of making an online purchase, I always print off the products and prices and then head down to the store to make the purchase. Now with two kids in tow and a trip to the corner grocery store is a full day event, I finally made the leap and made my first online shopping purchase. Why did I wait so long?????? I’m kicking myself to why I didn’t start online shopping a long time ago???

Mally Bibs Blog: Spring is here! Summer is coming! - April 24, 2009
Here in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, the sun has finally shown itself and proved that spring is really here for real! And with the sun, thoughts of summer fill my head, including playing in the water at the lake, or in a backyard pool! I CAN'T WAIT! And what child does not love water toys, either for outside or for bath time? That brings me to my subject of the day, Boon Inc.'s Water toys! Now, we have raved about this company and their products in a previous blog post, but how can we stop talking about a company we love? The water toys by Boon Inc are modern and innovative!

So we were happy to see that Boon’s new line of bath toys is BPA-, Phthalate- and PVC-Free. They’re also fun. Our favourites are the Water Bugs which engages our kids’ imaginations – are they bugs, or spiders or octopi - and keeps them busy in the tub for ages.

This gorgeous Little Chipipi Red Robin wall sticker collection was sent my way shortly after arriving to Texas. With no furniture in the house and plenty of time on our hands, my children and I have become VERY fond of these adorable decals.

Natural Mommie: Raspberry Kids - April 8, 2009
Sue Sinclair, Chief Executive Mom at Raspberry Kids , shared my same frustration learning the hard lesson of "you get what you pay for" when buying baby products for her first born. When you're spending thousands of dollars on cribs, highchairs, diapers, the cutest baby socks you've ever seen, and those 57 baby onesies that we all think we think we'll need, it's easy to look past quality when we see a deal.

Kindervibe: Divine Spring Dresses - April 7, 2009
We think B.C.-based online store Raspberry Kids has cornered the Canadian market on offering a selection of unique, hip, and modern dresses. Kindervibe product tester, Marley, nearly four, recently was outfitted with a Kuki Kids Fresh and Fabulous dress. When Marley first laid eyes on it, this dress diva wanted to slip it on immediately. She loves dressing it up with a pair of tights and sparkly shoes for special outings, and can dress it down for hours of play at the park. Numerous washes later, the dress looks brand new thanks to the durable 100 per cent cotton canvas fabric. Designed by an Australian mom who lives in Hong Kong, these spring dresses are definitely worth adding to your daughter's wardrobe.
