One of our favorite kid's clothing lines is on the roll. Literally. KNUCKLEHEADS added to their adorable line of retro styled jeans, plaid shirts and pullovers a set of "Lil Sleds" and "Big Sleds" skateboards perfect for that skating parent and offspring duo. The boards feature custom artwork, pro model trucks and wheels, 100% maple wood, and are made in the USA. Time to teach the little one to grind, kickflip and ollie. Remember the age old adage, the family that skates together stays together.

You thought the Bugaboo stroller was expensive? Well that's just your daily driver compared to the Rolls Royce of strollers that is The Roddler from Kid Kustom. These sweet rides are completely tricked out and totally custom. You can select finishes from Plum Pearl to Chrome, pick from a variety of fender packages inspired by 50's Cadillacs and accent with exotic leather choices like ostrich and alligator. But once you get your little prince strapped in, then what? Add-ons like a DVD system, an ipod doc and bluetooth speakers will keep them preoccupied while you drop bank at Saks, Barneys and Neiman Marcus. Where else would you be shopping if you had $2000 to spend on a stroller. Yes, $2000 big ones. Forget the college fund, Kid Kustom here we come!

So you're at a play date, play ground, or some random babyfest, when your thirsty toddler grabs for her Dora the Explorer sippy cup. She takes a big swig and you see a little girl with her nose running like a faucet grab an identical Dora the Explorer sippy cup. Uh-oh. Hello cold season. With so many identical cups, and so many runny noses, it's almost impossible to keep your kids away from the "cooties" that infest toddlerhood. But with the Create My Own Cup sippy you can make your kids drink container as unique as they are. Photos of them, their pet or some of their own artwork make the drinks alot easier to swallow.

Forget the Elmo Condo Kit or the Dora the Explorer Erector set, we like the classics like the
Lincoln Logs Commemorative Edition
Not plastic, but good old fashion wood, just like a log cabin should be. Interesting fact, Lincoln Logs were designed by John Llyod Wright, son of Frank Llyod Wright. A perfect pedigree to get you or yours bitten by the architecture bug. First a little cabin on the dining room table, next that getaway in Tahoe, it's always good to start small.

I had the squirt ring, the magic ink, and the dribble glass but never had the honor of owning my own set of X-Ray Specs although I coveted them in the colorful ads in every one of my Richie Rich comics. Now I can fulfill my dreams of x-ray vision as well as obtaining an always comical snake in the can, money snatcher and the classic fart whistle. All for the low low price of $22.00 in the Jokes On You Prank Kit from Restoration Hardware. I just hope that they come out with one of those seven foot long cardboard submarines next.

Motherhood brings many things, sleepless nights, a endless string of colds and the eventuality that you'll spend more on your toddlers clothes than your own. The last is really hard since there are so many companies making ridiculously cute apparel for the under five set.
When torn with the option of buying a sweet pair of kicks for your weekend outings or grabbing a set for your 2 year old especially with L.A.M.B's (from pop icon Gwen Stefani) adorable and very sturdy slip on shoes for the kiddies. And what toddler doesn't need a pair of gold sneakers!?!
