Grand Trunk’s new Junior Hammocks are perfect for your younger kids.   They have three to opens to choose from including Rising Stars, Elefunks and Safari.  They are so cute, easy to hang and comfy!  The perfect Christmas gift.  If you purchase a hammock for your teens (which we recommend) you will need to be sure to purchase for your little kids too!  So easy to hang and use and then store away when not in use.

Strong Self(ie) is a quarterly subscription box to help build up a community of STRONG girls by delivering handpicked items that are purposeful, positive and powerful. There are two boxes – Bloom (for 8-12 year old) and Burst (for 12-17 year old) – that feature trendy products that represent the four corners of self(ie) strength: Health(ie), Smart(ie), Funn(ie) and Beaut(ie).

The company was founded by two moms who have girls themselves, that wanted to inspire this demographic to be strong and positive and to also encourage them to pay it forward. The boxes feature high quality items (for example, one of the items in the December box is a Mermaid Pillow!) that many girls are looking to buy anyway. Now they are packaged in one easy shipment, cost a fraction of what they would pay for each item individually and mailed to their home with a positive message every three months.  We LOVE this gift of esteem and empowerment to girls and pre-teens!
