The Friday Follow: 4 Instagram Accounts We’re Loving Right Now

The Friday Follow

There’s a kid in all of us. Which is why we can’t resist double-tapping every single photo these fashionable, pint-sized cuties post.

1.  We fell head over heels for little Mayhem’s paper dresses weeks ago. So we obviously can’t stop guessing what @2sisters_angie will post next. 

2. At only five years old, @alonso_mateo already has more Gucci (and swagger) than us.

3. If only we could rock a topknot and aviators like @hails_world. One day, one day.

4. It’s safe to say @masonkjsmommy has mastered the art of layering. His cardigan collection is beyond enviable.

Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

Since these kids have better wardrobes than us, it’s totally acceptable to be jealous of them. Right?

1. Rachel Zoe styles practically everyone in Hollywood. So it’s hardly surprising that her son Skyler always looks so dapper.

2. You might not see Alia Wang in the tabloids as often as the Jolie-Pitts, but when she shows up, she owns it in street wear.

3. Tabitha and Marion Broderick are double-trouble. Not only do they look alike, they dress (adorably) alike, too.

4. When Kingston Rossdale dyed his mohawk blue at age 6, he pretty much cemented himself as a pint-sized trendsetter.

5. Let’s be real. No list of fashionable kids would be complete without the queen herself, Ms. Suri Cruise.

Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

We thought we were doing style right. But these mini fashion fiends are giving us a run for our money.

1. Shabby chic. Vintage chic. Ethereal chic. Whatever you want to call it, these kids are Chic. Capital “C” required.

2. We’re wondering if these little ones might be so kind as to share who their stylists are…

3. Flower crowns and oversized spectacles are still in. We were debating it. Until we saw this.

4. If some pint-sized cuties can rock prints this hard, so can we.

5. Because at the end of the day, these kids prove style should never be taken too seriously.

School’s Out! Now It’s Time to Play

The ultimate backyard is here – just in time for summer

 
The moment the kids have been waiting for all year has finally arrived: the very first day of summer vacation. Begin the season on the right foot by stocking the backyard with plenty of playthings to keep them outside. Whether they’re relaxing – er, splashing – by the pool with you, jumping on a trampoline, or digging in the sandbox (or on the beach), everything they need for the best summer ever is right here. Just don’t forget the sunscreen.

Big-Kid Dreams: The Toys Everyone (Still) Wants

Once a kid, always a kid. Well, maybe no one said that, but I wish I could still have recess and playtime – not to mention a huge, overflowing toy box. If given the opportunity to have my own “Big” moment, here’s what I’d be wishing for – and what the little ones in my family will likely end up with for the holidays.

1. Random House Little Critter® Complete Collection
Yes, I was the kid who snuck books under my covers with a flashlight when it was past my bedtime, and these Mercer Mayer titles made an appearance more than once.

2. Dexton Mercedes-Benz S-Klasse Ride-On Car
I definitely would have been the coolest kid in school (or maybe the neighborhood) puttering around in this lifelike Mercedes.

3. Guidecraft All in One Play Kitchen
There’s a solid chance my cooking skills today would be much improved had my parents decided to let me have one of these – and an Easy-Bake Oven.

4. Zoobies® Corduroy™ Storytime Pal
What kid doesn’t love the story of Corduroy? And this blanket-that-doubles-as-a-stuffed-animal would have made story time (and naptime) a whole lot more fun.

5. Guidecraft Deluxe Art Center
My parents’ kitchen table still (to their dismay) bears marks of hours spent crafting, glue-gunning, and painting. With this all-in-one craft center, budding artists can draw, paint, and create to their hearts’ content – without making a mess all over the room.

Give the kids what they want in our Ready. Set. Toys: The Playroom’s Greatest Hits Boutique, open on Tuesday, October 30, at 11AM ET.

Rawr! (It’s International Dinosaur Month!)

Move over, Shark Week – it’s International Dinosaur Month, and we’re ready to celebrate.

Even eons later, the world’s still just as into dinosaurs as it was 251,000,000 years ago. In fact, there are countless ways to get the kids (and/or yourself) even more in touch with these beloved prehistoric pals, this side of the Stone Age.

1) Re-rent Jurassic Park. While the once-groundbreaking “special effects” may be lost on the Pixar generation, there’s no denying that that velociraptor scene (the one in the kitchen) was downright terrifying. They’ll respect it. We promise.

2) If a natural history museum is within reach, pack a lunch and spend a Saturday there. Larger-than-life skeletons will put the dino’s grandeur in full perspective.

3) Rotate dinosaur eggs into snack time. (The kids don’t have to know they’re healthy…)

4) Dress your little one as a dinosaur for Halloween. Millions-of-years-old reptiles always get more candy.

5) Archeologists in training can hone their skills by digging for dino bones online.

6) If this dinosaur expert doesn’t have all the kids’ questions (“Why are dinosaurs so big?”) answered, this video from National Geographic surely will.

7) Shop our Little Rue Celebrates International Dinosaur Month Boutique! It’s packed with dinosaur-inspired toys, books, and more, sure to keep any budding paleontologist blissfully occupied for hours.

Our Little Rue Celebrates International Dinosaur Month Boutique opens Wednesday, October 17, at 11AM ET.

Getting Schooled in Style

Being Schooled in Style by the Under 12 Set

We asked the youngsters of four Rue associates to dress their parents for a day at the office and teach us all that they could about style. Needless to say, it was quite an education.

Lesson #1: It’s okay to break out your party clothes on a Monday.
Maureen’s bright paisley dress doesn’t get as much wear as it deserves – at least according to Henry, age 6 3/4 – so the Rue stylist donned it for the normal workday. “It must have been infectious because I got tons of smiles,” she says. So why did Henry opt for more formal attire? “It has all my favorite colors,” he says. “I like that it has pink – because pink is for girls. I like that it has orange too. Orange is my favorite color.”

Lesson #2: Dress for an adventure.
When he learned he’d have to wear soccer shorts paired with dress shoes, Colin, our SVP of User Experience, was a bit skeptical (and we’re putting that lightly). What was son Jack (11) thinking? It’s simple. “If you’re going to play soccer after work, you don’t even have to change!” he explains. Whether you’re a sports aficionado or consider shopping your cardio, make sure to get on board by dressing for some spontaneous fun.
