Hey, did you guys know that Angie from A Whole Lot of Nothing has an online store for kids called Good for the Kids? Well, color me an idiot because she has had it all this time and I didn’t know, and I’ve never featured her here on Commodity Fetishism, despite the fact that she […]
Mini is so into robots lately, I think these robot stencils might be a good stocking stuffer.
Recycled crayons are nothing new, and they aren’t really tough to make, either, but if you’re too lazy, or not interested in the ring designs that are popular right now for your kid’s next birthday party, check out the designs available from Zebree on Etsy. They have a ton and will even make up custom […]
Am I afraid to dress my preschooler in rain boots that look like dinosaurs? No, I am most certainly not afraid. I figure I have one, maybe two more years left of this, tops.
I know, I know — I am always putting lunchboxes on here. What can I say? There are a lot of cute lunchboxes out there. But I finally bought this one for Mini last week after I decided the Stegosaurus one I got last year had seen better days. Mini is still fond of dinosaurs, […]

Avast ye mateys, it’s bath time! Mini is going to FREAK when he sees this Pirate Hooded Towel. I’m going to save the discussion about the problematics of using a pirate as a unexamined character type for children’s games, movies, costumes, and activities for at least one more year. Maybe two.
Just in time for back to school is this line of Popatu Trolley Backpacks for Toddlers. I have not seen them up close, so I’m not sure how much they can actually carry, but I’m thinking it’s probably best not to load down your toddler with a bunch of crap anyway — these things are […]
