The Day The Crayons Quit

Monday, September 29, 2014
When the Crayons decided to start protesting last year, Fiddlesticks instantly fell in love with the incredible illustrations by Oliver Jeffers and the witty protestations of Drew Daywalt.  
The Day the Crayons Quit has become a favorite and a staple in our book rotation. On Tuesday, September 30, the Crayons shall finally and officially quit! 
In celebration of this momentous occasion we are offering 15% off the cover price of the book for three days. On September 29 through October 1 we will have stickers, art projects and a raffle to win a free copy of our beloved book. 
Join us in the fight for Crayon rights!

A/W 2014 Kids' Fashion Trends: Woodland / Wonderland

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Dreamy Autumn pieces from two new lines, Poppy Rose and Anais & I

Mid-July, and we know you're up to your elbows in brightly-hued beach towels, melting popsicles, and criss-crossed summer camp schedules. But here's a little secret: back-to-school shipments are already coming in weekly with Mike the UPS man, and the bulk of our deliveries will be on the racks in the next four weeks.

So what's on the menu for Autumn / Winter 2014? Every season we watch in delight as themes emerge from the broad range of lines we carry, and this season the trends are extra clear, and extra special. We're heading into a season full of cozy knits, new just-for-the-kids denim, prints and graphic inspired by whimsical woodland creatures, and more than a few bright pops of metallic shine.

Our young customers fill their imaginary worlds with an astonishing cast of fanciful creatures, and this season many designers chose to celebrate these joyful beasts in their prints and graphics. Egg Baby, a seasonal favorite for their snugly knits, have woven all sorts of magical animals into their designs (and wait 'til you see Winter Water Factory's polar bear print!). 

Look out, world: the kids have discovered denim, and they're not giving it back. From Tea Collection's grand-slam puffy denim vest and first-ever jean jacket to Pink Chicken's soft chambray Kennedy Dress, children's designer have made denim fresh and kid-friendly.

And as for those tiny feet? Elizabeth got starry-eyed at the Easy Peasy booth (can you blame her?) and we'll have stacks of their buttery-soft leather baby shoes coming in from France, all sprinkled with shine and doused with whimsy. (Baby's first steps ARE a work of magic, after all.)

Livie and Luca, a local shoe line and perennial Fiddlesticks favorite, has also fallen for woodland critters this season: we've picked up their new Hedgie to keep our best-selling Fox company (along with a few other surprises). 

Shine, shine, SHINE! They do it every day, and this season we're celebrating that with a shop packed full of our best buy yet (including quite a few glints and gleams of metallic glam, like those knock-out Pink Chicken Leggings above). Autumn / Winter 2014, here we come! 

Join us here on our Autumn Trends Pinterest board for more dreaming...

Willkommen in Deutschland!

Saturday, June 14, 2014
Sling on your rucksacks, boys and girls: as we transition from summer to fall (yes, already!), Tea Collection is whisking us across the map from Morocco to Germany, where we'll spend the Fall / Winter season.

Every season, Tea sends its design team to a new country to gather snapshots, fabric swatches, and journals bursting with inspiration. Once back in their sunny San Francisco studio, they magic up the season's collection, drawing on inspiration from their travels.

The first collection of Tea Germany, Die Blauen Hafen, is already hanging in our shop, and it's love at first sight. Think loads of denim (including some brand new cuts and washes), bold ship graphics, bright pops of red, classic dress silhouettes in fresh now florals, and tons of basics for layering under and over. (Polka dots and stripes, yes please.)

This season Tea Collection has also introduced soft layering basics for Baby: delightfully sweet rompers and tiny dresses are cozier than ever when layered over soft cotton bodysuits and fitted pants.

If this first Fall delivery is any indication, we're in for a stellar season. We're happy to set sail into Fall / Winter with you as travel buddies - here we go!
