Kids get cool from head to toe

      Get messy
      The worst part of making crafts with kids is the mess that follows. (The best part? Macaroni-and-glitter pictures on the fridge.) The solution for Vancouver-based mom Minna Simko was to create a line of easy-to-clean smocks ($20 to $25) suitable for children aged two to six. Made from colourful, waterproof fabric—oilcloth, laminated cotton, and even vinyl tablecloths—all a smock needs for cleanup is a quick rinse under the tap. Also featuring kid-friendly Velcro closures, these kimono-style tops double as aprons for your little chef in training. Check out Simko’s designs at

      Hat tricks
      Sand Cassel Kids, the spring 2009 hat line by Pittsburgh-based Goorin, brightens up spring with pink pinstripes, plaid twills, floral prints, and polka dots. The button-top cabbie hats have a cotton lining and an elastic-fit back to ensure comfort for kids of all shapes and sizes. The screen-printed baseball caps ($23) have adjustable back closures, and the dapper felt and plaid fedoras ($35) top off any ankle biter’s outfit with a little film-noir chic. At ModernKid (45 Water Street).

      The freshest kids
      Joe Fresh Style expands its kids’ collection this season—right down to the toes. Look for the cute pair of quilted sailor-esque flats, which come in white or navy with gold chain-link detail across the toes and navy-blue outline around the sole, or the metallic gold ballet flats with the buckle detail. The line also features a sweet pair of watermelon-themed rain boots to keep tiny toes dry on Vancouver’s inevitable rainy spring days ($12 to $16, at the Real Canadian Superstore [various locations]).

      Later, skater
      California-based DVS Shoe Company continues to branch out from the skateboard shoes that made it famous with a duo of infant-clothing designs for the skater-to-be. Designed for tots three to six months old, the three-piece sets ($35) include a tiny baby tuque adorned with the DVS logo and a pair of booties with printed seams and laces. The predictably pink girls’ set features a jumper with graphics of clouds, while the black-on-white boys’ jumper cheekily reads “My other stroller is a skateboard.” At Paul’s Boutique (2280 Guildford Town Centre, Surrey).
