The girls are growing up so quickly. It’s been such a treat to watch them mature, and come into their own, but they’re still young enough for imaginative play to be very alive and well in our home.
When we were traveling the beginning of the month, they packed their own bags, but filled them with all of their dolls and trinkets. Each morning they woke up and played with their dollies, creating different scenarios along the way. Gemma even made these little voices for each one of her dolls- I wish I could bottle this up forever. It was seriously the cutest thing.
Apple Park is a brand that has grown with my girls for the past five years. I’m pretty much a brand loyalist, and love purchasing from my trusted places year after year. I tend to get melancholy when I think my kiddies are growing out of a brand, but this has yet to happen with Apple Park.
I remember giving Siella her first backpack, an Apple Park grey little bunny from their Plush Pals collection, which she still has today! I gave it to her when Ryder started preschool. She felt like such a big girl, and it made t as if she wasn’t missing out on anything. I still have some photos from then in this post here.
Right around the time that Siella grew out of her plush little bunny backpack, Apple Park introduced these fun Eco-friendly backpacks, made with sturdy, water-resistant fabric. It feels like cotton, but they’re actually recycled from plastic bottles rescued from our landfills! I’m happy to say the backpacks in these photos are over two years old, and still look totally brand new. They are Siella and Gemma’s first choice when we pack up for vacations or sleep over at my parents’ house. There are two different sizes, and each backpack has a matching lunch bag and snack bag, so they are ideal for your little one just starting school, or for bigger kids like my almost second grader!
Apple Park recently introduced these sweet City Pals, and the girls cannot get enough. The City Pals collection, which includes a bunny, sheep, lion, alligator, and bear are cute, cuddly, and made with 100% certified organic cotton. Each City Pal comes from a different global locale and has a unique profession and interest. The girls packed up their City Pals for a picnic we had at the park along the Hudson River. This new cosmopolitan crew is just adorable and impossible to not want to collect them all! I think they make the perfect gifts for birthday parties!
Excited to see Apple Park continue to grow with my kiddies, and so happy they continue to make environmentally responsible and luxurious products for babies and children!
