Children grow up fast, despite science's best attempts to weigh them down with apple-filled backpacks and bronze shoes. Accommodate growing kids with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of children's organic clothing and toys at Franklin Goose.
A champion for safe, earth-friendly child rearing, Franklin Goose presents parents with an array of creative and practical organic, natural, and chemical-free supplies for youngsters of all ages. Cloth-diapering essentials, such as Thirsties Duo Wrap Snap, adjustable to two sizes, comes in an array of stylish patterns ($13.75). Babybjorn’s soft bib boasts a quick-clean material and a clever pocket ideal for catching errant crumbs and pet hamsters ($11.99). A Green Sprouts gator, hippo, or pig bath puppet can transform a bath into a playful event and a venue for rehearsing for aquatic operas. A charming newsboy cap ($20) keeps pintsize heads warm and stylish, and a Green Babies “Totally Bananas” romper swaddles either boys or girls in organic cotton accented with nickel-free snap closures ($34).
In addition to outfitting progeny, Franklin Goose proffers a bevy of gear for expectant and real-time parents, ranging from carriers and breastfeeding accessories to nursery furniture and personal-care products. After a goodnight story of There’s a Cow in the Cabbage Patch ($6.99), moms without the ability to teleport can sneak away for some well-deserved relaxation by sprinkling Earth Mama Angel Baby bath blossoms in a warm tub of stress relief ($8.95).
