Spring has sprung! Are you ready?

Spring has sprung and the warm weather is begging for you to take your family outdoors for some fun. It is a time where children can once again explore the outdoors.

We – at KidzStuff™ — love this time of year because the fresh air gives children lots of energy, but also poops them out at the end of the day. Plus, they’ve forgotten about all of the toys they have outside so everything that is old is new again.

Kathleen Alfano, Ph.D., the Director of Child Research at Fisher-Price® notes that, “Playing outdoors is a form of exercise that promotes well-being and wholesome physical development.” and we agree.

When taking a baby or toddler outdoors, make sure he/she is well covered. Two items we L.O.V.E. to talk at this point in the year are our Sun Blocker™ Romper and Insect Shield® Romper.

Our Sun Blocker™ Romper is a lightweight garment is specially designed to prevent harmful UV rays from damaging your baby’s gentle skin. Rated UPF40, the Sun Blocker™ Romper offers a chemical- and lotion-free defense against the sun. Plus, with its long sleeves and attached hoodie, you can confidently keep the sun’s rays at bay all day long!

If your area can get a little buggy and you need to protect your child from insects, including those that carry insect-borne diseases, then check out our Insect Shield® Repellent Romper. It has a patent-pending technology for treating apparel that repels mosquitoes, ticks, flies, chiggers and midges. Insect Shield® protection is built right in and lasts the expected lifetime of the product. Stays in your clothes, not on your skin.

Did you know? Dr. Alfano also says that, “Playing actively outdoors also increases flexibility, fine and gross motor skills and is related to the development of a wide variety of physical skills, including those involved in sports.”
