Is it just me or did babies and toddlers suddenly go from cute to fresh to death!?? Seriously, everywhere I look I see dapper little studs and young divas with swagger! Maybe it's just where l live, cause I realized most of the fresh gear I was seeing on kids were from local shops started by some incredible momtrepreneurs. Check out some of our favorites and the wonderful story behind these empowering women!
Jack & Winn
Have you been looking for an adorable snapback hat for your little one, but could not find what you were looking for or the hat just didn't fit right? Well that's the problem this mama, Jessica Norton, was facing, but instead she did something about it. This is how Jack & Winn was started. It's named after her two little boys, Jack and Winston, how cute is that!? Jack & Winn accomplished making a high-quality snapback that has taken off and acquired a huge following. Check out their snapbacks here.
This adorable shop was started by Jaime M. when she ran into the lack of accessory options out there for her son. She noticed clip on ties never stayed on her little boy and this is how her "aha" moment was formed. She came up with the idea of using the top button on a button up shirt to secure a bow tie on! How brilliant! Little Mister has a huge following on social media and has sold thousands of these button on ties! They also sell suspenders! Check out their accessories here.
Copper Pearl was started by two stay-at-home mama's with an eye for a much needed product and the motivation for entrepreneurship. They came up with the name based off of their hair color! Kristin is a red-head (a.k.a. the “copper”) and Stephanie is a blond (a.k.a. the “pearl”). They were able to create a trendy and modern baby bib, as well as many other baby products, that exceeds all expectations with design and quality. Check out their products here.
RAGS to Raches
Rachel Nilsson is the name behind this rapidly growing company. She designed her little boy's clothes and came up with the "RAG", a one-piece with no snaps or zippers. RAGS to Raches was nominated by the Huffington Post for the ‘Top 15 coolest kid brands in America’ and were ranked one of the top 15 fastest growing companies in Utah. They were also on ABC's Shark Tank! Needless to say, their product is amazing! Check out their clothes here.
The mama behind this bombshell of a company is Susan Petersen. She was sick and tired of the poorly designed baby shoes on the market so she decided to do something about it! She started making baby moccasins in 2009 with scrap leather she picked up at a yard sale! With her little budget and determination she was able to make Freshly Picked into the amazing company it is today. With over 700,000 followers on Instagram and seen on ABC’s Shark Tank, they are only on their way up. Check out their baby moccasins here.
