She simply sent an email inquiring about shipping to Canada because our website does not have the option… It was simple and easy. We responded with our customer service # for her to place a phone order. You can do the same 800-918-7670 ext.1. She was so happy when she received her Tiny Pants peacoat- See her email below:
We had a summer rain shower a few weeks ago; and to Jada’s delight, she was able to wear our new raincoat. I posted this photo on my Facebook page and many of you asked when and where you could buy it. Well, I’m happy to say the shipment just came in and it’s available NOW! Click here to purchase. It’s over 90 degrees today in New York, and I say bring on the rain!

Safe Nail Polish for Your Mini Me
As mommies, one thing we have in common (if you have a little girl) is that she loves to get her nails and feet done. My daughter Jada is 3 years old and loves to get her nails and toes done just like her mommy. She likes bright colored nail polish…especially blue since that is her favorite color. Some people tell me she is too young to get her feet polished, but I feel that when she is wearing sandals, she should be able to express her style through colors on her toes and fingers just like me.
My only issue with nail polish was finding a safe kid-friendly polish. I did some research and found some non-toxic nail polish especially made just for kids called Hopscotch Kids.
Most nail polishes contain harmful ingredients that are no good for our little ones. Ingredients such as: formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate and acetone. I wanted to find a safer option for my daughter that still allowed her to wear nail polish. Hopscotch Kids is a water-based nail polish. There are no toxic chemicals, which makes me comfortable.
Hopscotch Kids WaterColors has great color choices and are available in a wide array of fun, vibrant colors. The colors have fun names like “Bubble Gum Bubble Gum in a Dish,” “Ice Cream Soda Pop,” and “Heads Up Seven Up” – just to name a few. The nail polish will cost you $12.99 each, but it is worth it for your daughter’s safety!
They also have cute gift sets that include safe polish remover. There is no need for a base or top coat with Hopscotch Kids because it’s salon quality (meaning it won’t chip easily and it shines) making it an even better value. In addition, (to top it off) if you are concerned about the earth, the product is 100 percent biodegradable. Hopscotch Kids WaterColors is a great safe nail polish that still allows your daughter to express herself while staying safe, and as a parent, safety is #1!

Summer is officially here! We thought there is no better time than now to write our first post and let our TinyPants fans and family know what’s going on. Hmmm… what is going on?! Pretty much any and everything! My partner Lindsay and I hit the ground running with our debut collection last season and we haven’t come up for air. We went to Las Vegas Kidshow in February and we hit the children’s ENK show in NYC in March…and now summer is here and our first collection for Fall 2010 is hitting the stores and it’s quite amazing! Check out the most popular styles ordered below…
While deliveries are going out soon for the fall collection, in the words of Jay-Z we are already “On to the next one.” We’re working hard on bringing a spectacular Spring 2011 follow up, and if I say so myself, we won’t be falling into any sophomore slump. The spring collection is hottt!!! We are so excited that we are busting at the seams – literally.
Hope you guys have a great kick off to summer and check back again soon as Lindsay and I will be blogging about the business, the line, celebs and their babies and anything else that tickles our fancy!
