The Moon Cocoon Sleep Sack by Nini and Pumpkin is unlike any other sleep sack!  The incredibly soft 100% cotton with PrimaLoft fill will keep your little one comfortable on those cold winter nights. The versatile Moon Cocoon transforms into what you need, when you need it.  Fitting sizes 6 months up to 3 years, strategically placed snaps allows 3 size adjustments to the Moon Cocoon.  It literally grows and transforms with your child, when she can no longer comfortably wear it, she can still use the detachable bottom as a blanket!

What makes the Moon Cocoon truly unique is the interchangeable tops. In the earlier days when your baby may spit up or drool on the top, you can change it and put on a new one without disrupting the bottom half of the sleep sack. You can even roll up the Moon Cocoon into a neck roll when traveling or relaxing at home. When you need a blanket to lay under your little one at the hotel, just detach the bottom and unzip it for a soft, comfortable barrier. The placement of the zipper allows toddlers to move about easily, offers easy access for diaper changes and enables additional air flow into the sleep sack. 
Moon Cocoon end
The Moon Cocoon offers optimum warmth when used at 65-72 degrees F and can be used indoors all year long. It’s also easy to keep clean, just throw it in the washing machine! If you’re looking for something organic, the Moon Cocoon in Elephant Print is the sleep sack for you.

Yondi Travel Pillow By Trunki

Do you plan to take a long road trip with your toddler during the holidays this year? If so, there’s a strong chance that your child will fall asleep in their car seat, leaving their head to bobble around or fall forward. And while you may be enjoying the peace and quiet that a nap in the back seat brings, your child’s head can’t be comfortable. 

With that in mind, Yondi is a specially designed travel pillow that connects under the chin with hidden magnets to form a soft and supportive cushion. This will stop your child’s head rolling forward so they can dream of toys and candy in comfort.

Yondi is made with fabric that is plush on one side and silky smooth on the other; and the micro-bead filling is soft yet firm. It also comes with the unique Trunki Grip, so your little one can attach their favorite blankie. Available in 7 different characters/colors, Yondi is recommended for ages 2 and older.
