Snuggle Bug Kidz



Snuggle Bug Kidz on Etsy has fantastic finds for your little ones. You can find those adorable accessories to complete your little diva's outfit, or your princess will love to twirl in her tutu with a matching shirt. The products are perfect for little ones that love to have fun.

Here is a little about the owner and her family. Their beautiful family has led them to new adventures in their life, and Snuggle Bug Kidz stands strong today for everyone to enjoy their creations. I am glad that I was able to have the opportunity to work with her. A picture of her beautiful family is below. Her husband, Steven and Melena are in the center. They are surrounded with their son, Joshua, and their two daughters, Eliana and Carissa.



"Snuggle Bug Kidz was born out of the desire to find good quality, fun clothing, and accessories for my kids. When I gave birth to my first daughter we didn't know she was going to be a "preemie," she weighed in at only a little over 4 pounds.  I couldn't find anything in the stores that would fit her. No retail outlet in our area even carried preemie clothing.  This is where the beginning of Snuggle Bug Kidz took place. With no where else to turn, I began asking family and friends if they could help make some clothing for my daughter.



Almost exactly 4 years later my 2nd daughter was born. At birth she had a perfectly round head but over time she developed  Plagiocephaly  which is a cranial abnormality which causes your child's head to be lopsided . With the help of our Dr. we were able to get her fitted for a CranioCap Orthosis to help correct the problem. While having a conversation with her Dr. I realized the huge need for a decorative hat for these orthosis. The CranioCap was a ugly plain white plastic helmet. I couldn't believe there wasn't anything to cover these things !  I began discussing with the Dr. about how we could cover these plastic helmets in a way that makes it fun for the kids and the parents. The Dr. had said many parents won't go in public with the helmets on and therefore the children end up in them for much longer then they need to. This was my " AH-HA moment"...


As time went on and the busyness of life took over I began to realize the huge need for not only preemie clothing, and CranioCap covers, but for the need to celebrate the FAMILY as a whole.  We're all different. We all come in different shapes and sizes, and we all have our funny quirks !


Being a young mom of 3 has it's challenges and one of those challenges is to find good quality merchandise at a great price. As my kids have grown and their personalities began to shine I wanted to make accessories, and clothing, that matched who they were... FUN...ACTIVE..and PLAYFUL....this is where the Snuggle Bug Adventure began! . With the help of two great friends, Ashley and Rebekah,  I believe we’ve created a brand of clothing and fun accessories that will truly bring a smile to anyone who wears them."

I LOVE Snuggle Bug Kidz New Flower Snuggle Bug t-shirt! It is perfect for little ones that love to add accessories and style to their outfit. You can change the flower clip out with other style flower clips, or you can add another clip fo your choice. The possibilities are endless and your little ones will always love to wear this shirt. My daughter loved wearing it. Toddlers love being able to start trying to do things on their own. They like to be independent, however, as parents, we cannot always give them so much space since they are indeed still young. This shirt gives them so of the independence they crave because you can buy a variety of clips or flower clips to go with them, and your little one can decide which style or color they want to wear. Make sure to get a variety of colors too. The colors available are Turquoise, Purple, Pink, Yellow, Coral, and White. The sizes available are 12 mo, 18 mo, 24 mo, and 2T - 5T. Onsies are also available in this style as well as larger shirt styles in the store, so do not worry if you do not see your child's size. 


How can you go wrong with a tutu? A matching white tutu comes with this set for only $24.99. The outfit is precious and affordable. The tutu is one size fits all so you do not have to worry about choosing a size. My daughter is 4 and it fit her perfectly.


I also love how the shirt is not connected to the tutu, so you can wear the shirt with anything. The same goes for the tutu as well. If it was my daughter's choice, she would wear a tutu everyday. Why couldn't she? You can dress up this tutu or make it casual for any occasion.




Another accessory to add to the outfit is a Lime Green and Pink Crystal Peony Double Ribbon Kufi Hat. The hat is only $15, and looks great with the Flower Snuggle Bug t-shirt. The hat can go with anything of course, and your little one will love to have this. This hand sewn hat is a great item to have, and other styles and colors are available.

I would love to win this because my Niece's birthday is coming up on the 10th of August and at the moment , I don't know what to get her. I don't want to go out to the store and buy something because of my money situations. With this in mind , I do want to get her something green - her favorite color is green and pink.
I'll probably give her the Visa gift card as well , if I win the contest.
