Many thanks to Celebrity Baby Scoop!

Many thanks to Celebrity Baby Scoop for today's review of Hand Picked Pumpkin:
Hand Picked Pumpkin: Customizable, Comfortable & Stylish Clothing

Hand Picked Pumpkin features a modern line of limited edition and custom baby clothing that is both stylish and comfortable. They use only the softest in cotton knits and the trim prints are both colorful and easy to coordinate.

Designer Allison Case of Hand Picked Pumpkin has created a unique and user friendly way to customize clothing for your little one.

The process is simple.

1. Visit her website and pick a garment (she's got everything from playsuits and dresses to pants and hoodies!)

2. Pick the color, style, trim and whether or not you prefer pockets.

3. Checkout and wait for your customized garment to arrive.

(If you would prefer not to customize there is the "Ready-made" option.)

All of the clothing is available in sizes up to 24 months and some are available in toddler sizes up to 4T.

Celebrity mom's like Hand Picked Pumpkin so much they sent Allison thank you notes!

90210 star Jennie Garth opted for custom overalls for her little girl while Courtney Cox Arquette's daughter Coco is a fan of the Logan Short Sleeve Lap Tee & Matching Skort.

The Best Fall Jackets for Babies and Toddlers

Early Childhood Parenting Examiner calls our Reversible Hoodie one of The Best Fall Jackets for Babies and Toddlers. Here's what they have to say:

Hand Picked Pumpkin'sreversible cotton hoodie jackets are customizable down to the buttons. The process itself is really fun. You pick colors, patterns, even button colors for the inside and outside of the little jacket. I did a blue and brown combo with cowboy and horses retro accent print. It is so cute and a fun item in my baby's wardrobe. Best yet, it is reversible so it's like having two cute jackets in one and you get to design both sides. Comes in sizes 3 months up to 4T.

Thanks to Baby Shopping Site!

Many thanks to Baby Shopping Site for this week's review of Hand Picked Pumpkin:

Babies in the cutest clothes, right? How about the cutest most comfortable clothes? The pieces at Hand Picked Pumpkin were designed by Allison Case when she saw how easily her son Pierson was crawling around in the more comfortable knit pants, and how sparse those were on the marketplace. And then Hand Picked Pumpkin was born in 2006 and has since taken many hearts, including ours, with their adorable and fashionable pieces.

Here is where the fun part and the "hand picked" part is:

Step 1: Pick your garment
Step 2: Choose the size (3-6 months up to 4T)
Step 3: Customize with amazing fabrics

As a fun and different way to party, if you live in the Oak Park, Illinois area, you can have a party or host a party and end up with your own discount on their products. Just call Hand Picked Pumpkin at 708-524-1812.
