We get this question- A LOT! Being that our products are- or are made of very small and easy to swallow parts we need to emphasize some important safety points. When it comes to protecting your baby from choking on little pieces you should be aware of what is considered a small part and what you should actually be looking out for. According to the CPSA a small piece is considered: "…any object that fits completely into a specially designed test cylinder 2.25 inches long by 1.25 inches wide that approximates the size of the fully expanded throat of a child under three years old. (See figure). See 16 C.F.R. 1501.4 A small part can be: (1) A whole toy or article. (2) A separate part of a toy, game, or other article. (3) A piece of a toy or article that breaks off during testing that simulates use or abuse by children." Find out why baby wisp is exempt from the Small Parts Regulation here.

So summer was a mix of good and bad. In short - the good was the opening of the Baby Wisp Boutique in Toronto! The bad- is a tie between the flooded basement during the crazy storm that hit the east and a massive tree that came crashing down into our yard (destroying a section of our brand new fence - thanks neighbour!) But alas, all the signals are in the air that summer is over. The nights are coming quicker, the air is getting chillier, and the BACK TO SCHOOL signs are up everywhere. We're all scrambling to get ready for September right about now. Do we have only a couple of weeks left? Aaaaaagh!!! I am excited that my daughter is returning to school with her two front teeth missing and a sun kissed complexion from a summer well spent at the splash pads, parks and beaches. She is the picture perfect school girl in my eyes. I can't wait to get her all set up for school. I know she's nervous (so am I!!!) but I'm hoping that as we shop for her first school supplies, her first alarm clock and her first day of school outfit - the anticipation will build and the anxiety will transform into happy anticipation. If the weather is good, then I hope she can wear a dress, tights and her mary jane style shoes. Unfortunately, I had to get her the Disney back pack (not my thing but is definitely hers so I caved on that as part of the negotiation so I can pick the hair accessory!). I think she will be wearing a headband with her dress as the Baby Wisp satin butterfly bow is my favourite on her. That was the inspiration for the current promotion available til August 24 only - that is "Spend $35 and get this headband FREE". Satin Butterfly Bow - Ribbon Wrapped Headband in Purple[/caption] The full details of our back to school promotions to help out with the accessorizing are available at this link. There are free items available with minimum purchases but I also realize that since Baby Wisp specializes in the BABY and TODDLER accessories, fall is still a time to begin coordinating Baby & Toddler Autumn outfits. Our family pictures are often taken in the fall so now would be a good time to start planning outfits for that. Newsletter subscribers are already aware that they can take 10% off their entire order this week only (cannot be combined with FREE gift offer and expires Aug 24, 2013). Use couponcode: noschool10 to take advantage of the discount. I have more announcements coming up soon that I'm excited to share. The boutique has been a wonderful experience for us. I cannot tell you how happy I am to be working outside my home again. Baby Wisp Boutique: 3345 Lake Shore Blvd West The best part about the shop is now I get to talk to customers face to face again to get their requests and see the outfits that need accessorizing. Last few requests have been for NEON ribbons - what do you think of that??? If you're in the neighbourhood, please come visit and tell us what you want! Good luck with the shopping and the preparations for Fall.
