image001Originally printed in Baby & Kids Newsletter, The eWeekly newsletter of Baby & Kids magazine, June 11, 2014

You don’t have to spend a lot to get a lot could be the mantra of every parent who has ever shelled out big money for a toy, only to discover their child prefers to play with the box it came in! Aeromax, makers of richly detailed pretend play products, has been awarded Creative Child 2014 Toy of the Year for its affordable $16.95 Youth Size Astronaut Helmet. With this toy, kids are encouraged to let their imaginations soar without breaking the bank.

Launched at NY’s Toy Fair earlier this year, the space helmet was designed for explorers ages three and up. The pintsize head gear doesn’t skimp on vivid details like a moving visor. Aeromax is known to offer rich accents on all of its dress up clothes and accessories.

The Youth Size Astronaut Helmet for ages three and up for only $16.95 is a great alternative to Aeromax’s award-winning $49.95 helmet. This 2014 version is a little smaller but offers rich details like the NASA logo, moving visor and appealing decorations that inspire kids to dream big. Aeromax is proud to be able to offer this lower price point and still deliver a superior prop.

Have Fun in the Sun with Baby BanZ, Inc.

Originally Published in Baby & Kids Newsletter June 5, 2013 Volume 7, Number 23

Baby BanZ sunglasses are more than just a fashion statement — their tiny, award-winning designs with total UVA and UVB protection create functional infant and kids sunglasses with added style. Perfect for back to school or anywhere you and your little one play under the sun, Baby BanZ are a must have accessory for children on to go.

Teach your children the importance of sun safety with the new addition to the Baby BanZ sunglasses collection, Junior BanZ. Made for boys and girls from ages 4-10, JBanZ offers the same quality lenses and polycarbonate frames as their original Baby BanZ but without the concept of the permanent band around the back of the head. Since children’s eyes have less protective pigment than adults, they absorb more ultraviolet radiation which is extremely harmful. Clinically tested by one of the world’s leading authorities on UV protection, Baby BanZ has passed the most stringent protection standards in the world!

JBanZ come with their own color coordinated neoprene carrying case complete with zipper clasp as well as a removable neoprene strap for active kiddos! Cleverly designed at an affordable cost, these sunglasses are designed for the wear and tear of playground and after school activities. Not only are JBanZ sunglasses fun, but they provide 100 percent UVA/UVB protection, letting parents rest assured that their kid’s eyes are completely protected! Merging form and function, JbanZ flexible temples resist breakage and the wrap around design adds extra protection from wind and debris for kids on the run while protecting delicate eyes from the sun’s harmful rays. For your little fashionistas, the new range of Jay BanZ with Jimmy Crystal of NYC with swarovski elements and custom designs will also be available soon for the new school year.

TAPIKID Mats are the Places to Play

TAPIKID Mats are the Places to Play

Originally Published in The Giggle Guide, By Stephanie Hanlon – Tuesday, February 26th 2013


DEUZ, based in France, knows that children enjoy attractive and artistic playmates, so they created TAPIKID. Little boys will spend hours playing with the neighborhood graphic playscape, complete with roadways perfect for toy cars. With ocean and forest themes, there’s more to stimulate creative playtimes.

DEUZ was created by two sisters, Marie and Charlotte, who combined their knowledge of art and finance respectively, to come up with a line of kid designs that are all about energetic colors and keen typography. Everything is made of certified organic cotton with natural dyes and packaged in recycled paper. They were joined by Elsa, an alumna of the Decorative Art “Ecole Boulle,” who brought her creative genius to TAPIKID.

Because we believe response will be great to the TAPIKID, consider carrying the BIGBAG, an extra-large zipped pouch made of TAPIKID offcuts that can be used as a cushion cover or toy bag.
