Winter Puffer Jackets by Hatley

About Hatley

It started over twenty years ago with a sense of humor, a talented painter Alice Oldland, her restless husband John, and The Little Blue House gift store in the lakeside village of North Hatley, Canada. Alice, inspired by the countryside around her, had just finished a series of paintings depicting farmyard animals. Needing a venue to show her work, Alice opened a gallery above her gift shop, The Little Blue House.

John watched the paintings sell and thought he could create a line of aprons based on Alice’s artwork. Their family has created an extensive children’s line that is both inspired by nature and ecologically responsible. The company still rests on the principles on which it was founded, which are: family, good design, quality and of course, loads of laughter. They are also a company that focuses on giving back. They support the Open Door Mercy Home Orphanage by helping in providing funding for the many needs of children.


Hatley’s products are built to last! As a company, they believe that the key factor in helping the environment is to produce products that are crafted to last through the use of many children. They strive to ensure that everything they produce is made from natural fibers, in a way that is environmentally sensitive. The Reversible Puffer Jacket asks one major question: Fun pattern or cool solid color? Life’s full of tough decisions. Whichever side of the reversible winter puffer your children decide to wear, you can be sure it’ll keep them warm and dry.

When the snow falls, make sure your kids are equipped with the best gear. At Daily Mom one of our FAVORITE things about Hatley is that their boots and jackets are 100% PVC Free!

Blue Banana Outerwear from Kushies

About Kushies

Kushies was founded as a small cottage-style industry in 1953. It grew to become the only Canadian manufacturer of doll clothing and accessories, with a customer list that included all the major Canadian department stores. In 1988, Sam Perez and Susan Malinowski purchased the assets of the doll company and assumed the roles of President/CEO and Vice-President. They started to look for additional market possibilities for the company to expand. The decision was made to concentrate efforts on the infant children’s market, with the initial relaunch product to be a re-useable, form-fitted cloth diaper. The internationally trademarked name “Kooshies” was created for the new product line. In 2003, the company’s name was officially changed to “Kushies.”

Kushies Baby USA is now located in Niagara Falls, New York; and the Stoney Creek Ontario location houses state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and a staff of over 200. A meticulous inspection standard for the ever-expanding product lines, which currently stands at over 350 baby products, ensures the continuation of the company’s high-quality standards and ever-growing popularity.


The new Blue Banana Snow Pants are fully lined with ultra-soft sherpa for luxurious comfort and warmth; and are specifically designed with the modern mom in mind. These affordable snow-bibs feature a fleece upper with an easy in/out zipper and wide straps, so you don’t have to mess with thin straps that keep falling down.

Top off their outerwear look with a cashmere hat and mittens set. Ultra soft, incredibly warm and super adorable. Who could ask for anything more?

Cashmere Hats and Mittens by Eden & Zoe 

About Eden & Zoe

Melissa Wang launched Eden & Zoe in 2013 with a wish to keep her daughters comfortable, cozy and stylish. Her girls decided that the wool knitwear she was finding in retail stores for children was too “itchy, ”so she started looking into cashmere for them.

Her aim is to design cashmere knitwear for children that is sophisticated and understated. She believes in classic styling with a modern twist; while paying attention to details that make a garment unique and timeless. The goal is that your child feels comfortable and confident in what she/he is wearing. Each collection is made in small quantities to ensure quality and exclusivity; and each piece is made from pure cashmere, created using a hand-operated knitting machine and finished by hand.


Playful and stylish, with a pom pom thrown into the mix, the super soft and comfortable Chris Hat is the ultimate winter accessory for boys and girls.

This cashmere hat is 100% natural, soft, breathable, lightweight, comfortable and warm. Whether you live in a state that receives a lot of snow or one that sees none, your child can wear cashmere in all climates because it has a high moisture content, which allows its insulation properties to change with the relative humidity in the air.

Furthermore, it will become a timeless treasure, as cashmere is long-lasting and actually becomes softer with age. The more your child wears this hat, the more comfortable it will become. And, it will make the perfect hand-me-down which can be shared with future little ones or younger siblings.

Wear a pair of these fun color block Bobby Mittens with your pom pom hat to keep your little one’s hands snug and warm. These color coordinating mittens are easy to put on, and so soft and comfy that he/she won’’t want to take them off.

Features You Will LOVE

  • 100% Cashmere
  • Suitable for boys and girls
  • Striking fleck yarn ribbing and pom pom
  • Hand finished
  • Available in Blue, Light Pink, Heather Grey (with pink trim as seen above) and Yellow
  • Fits infants to 10 years of age
Perfect For

Eden & Zoe hats and mittens are perfect for any child to wear this winter, no matter the heat (or cold) index. Ultra soft, super comfortable and chic, your child will not only be warm, but they’ll look adorable as they play all season long.
