Celebrate In Style With Zulily!

While you’re out painting the town on New Year’s Eve, there’s no reason not to start your little ones with a New Year’s tradition, too. Why not let them dress up while you’re donning your finest party wear? One of my friend’s favorite memory is New Year’s Eve when she stayed with her grandmother. She dressed up for her own party and she and her grandmother made confetti and rang in the New Year, too.

With today’s sales at zulily, you can find plenty to make that New Year’s celebration extra special. And if you spend $50 or more, use coupon code GA8967 to save $5 on your order.

Tutus are all the rage for little girls, and I see them featured in a sale almost every day. But I don’t think I’ve seen this line before . . . Featured at zulily today, you’ll find some of the cutest and most affordable tutus I’ve run across!

When Amanda Moreno Duke’s little girl was invited to a princess party, Amanda made her a fluffy tutu to wear. Of course, everyone loved it. Before long, Amanda was making tutus for other little ones, and Cutie Pa Tutus was born, fulfilling Amanda’s dream of being a work at home mom. Her signature Pa Tutus are full of twirly, girly, pom-pom-filled whimsy that tiny princesses everywhere will adore. Reasonably priced at $21.99, they come in Small, Medium, Large and a size for infants. Just right for your cutie-patootie!

Get a jump start on that perfect Christmas dress for next year. I love smocking, but sometimes, the price on smocked clothing is a real put off. But not so with these dresses by Candy Land. Enjoy super savings and gear up for next year’s holiday season with frocks full of Thanksgiving turkeys and Christmas cheer. $28.99 to $29.99 for these beautiful dresses and jumpers. I love this one for the spring and will probably wind up getting it for my granddaughter!

And while we’re talking smocked dresses . . . check out these year-round styles from Rosalina. With cute embroidery on heirloom fabrics, these sweet outfits are timelessly adorable. I remember the smocked dresses my mom made for me when I was a wee lass! A lot of love went into those dresses! Tiny tots love them because they are comfortable and easy to wear. This sale also includes fabric toys and calendars – so many possibilities, so little time! Dresses range from $26.99 to $28.99. I think this dress would be a perfect Easter dress.

When her daughter tried squeaker shoes, Mooshu Trainers’ creator was thrilled to find that they fit correctly and helped with stability and balance. Plus, the squeaker encouraged her daughter to walk heel to toe (that’s the only way the squeaker works). Now, Mooshu Trainers bring the benefits of squeaker shoes to your kiddo with a focus on width and flexibility while maintaining cute style. Aren’t these boots adorable? Prices range from $9.99 to $14.99.

Toys! Toys! Toys!


Kids will love cruising around in these vintage-inspired pedal cars by Warehouse 36. Not only does the Ford Motor Company license the roadsters, but each has authentic scaled-down features like working trunks, bells, tow hooks, and hood louvers. For little ones more interested in wild life than the open road, Warehouse 36 also offers realistic sound-making plush animals like elephants, horses, and giraffes. Prices start at $12 for these amazingly realistic stuffed animals and pedal cars are $179.

Melissa and Doug Bernstein first built wooden puzzles in their garage two decades ago. Today, they’re one of the country’s leading manufacturers of educational toys. You’ll love this selection as much as your tots do: Choose from playtime standbys like colorful stacking blocks, puzzles, and dollhouses. Or opt for standouts like a a tot-sized learning piano or a magic set. $8 and up.

You’ll also find Melissa and Doug toys at Totsy today. More merchandise in this sale and the prices are about the same. But if you’re in a hurry for shipping, you’ll want to go with the sales at Gilt.

Whether yours is a toddling rider who still needs a push or a soon-to-be cyclist in need of training wheels, this selection of bikes from Kettler at Gilt has your kid covered. Choose from push trikes for boys and girls, walker and classic wagons, racer bicycles, and more. $58 and up.

I love this little Harley Rocker–only at Gilt.

$5 off Orders over $50 at zulily! Use Code: GA8967 at checkout

These toys rock! And light up, whinny, gallop and spark imaginations everywhere. From toddlers to bigger kids, they’ll love these cuddly animals, plush rockers and more. We especially love the super-soft animal rockers: adorable horses that whinny, happy hoppy frogs and even a gentle bull for your little rodeo pro. When you’re looking for retro fun for your little one, look no further. All under $60.

Imagine a world where toys are manufactured in an eco-friendly way and they’re 100% recyclable, too. Imagine a company boosting their community with jobs for those with special needs. Imagine feeding your little one’s imagination with paintable boxes shaped like castles, barns and more. Creators Kim and Russ Cash imagined it all – and made it a reality.

I initially thought these boxes were sort of a lame thing until a mom told me that her children loved decorating their own little building! I say, bring on the imagination and can the video games! $17.49 to $23.99.


While the majority of toys have changed drastically since our parents’ generation, there are a few traditional options that remain high on every kid’s wish list. And the rocking horse is one of those true classics. What has changed significantly is the design—no more of those rigid, wooden mid-century models. In fact, Robo Horse has so revolutionized the rocking horse design that in their able hands, the toy no longer simply sways to and ‘fro, or springs up and down; it actually gallops! The Robo Horse “animals”—options range from the familiar (an elegant black stallion or white pony) to the imaginative (a dinosaur or a unicorn)—uses a patented system to perfectly mimic the sensation of actual riding. And with a soft, super-plush design and built-in saddles and handles, this is definitely the most comfortable horseback ride your little ones will ever experience. Prices start at $135.


And last, but certainly not least, the e-tailer with everything! Amazon.com has a huge selection of holiday toys! Find the perfect gifts for kids by age, gender, category, and price. Save on top toys, games, electronics, video games, and more in the 2010 Holiday Toy List!
