Small Shop Spotlight: Madeline's Box

I'm so excited to kickoff our Small Shop Spotlight mini series with Madeline's Box!  This new mini series will feature small shops (i.e. not Target or Baby Gap, because you already know how we feel about those) that we love and want to share with our readers.  There are so many shops with talented owners working hard at creating amazing things, and we are looking forward to partnering with them to help showcase their products!


If you've been following along here for really any period of time, you probably already know that Ellie is a huge pacifier girl.  She always has been and I have no immediate plans to kick her beloved binkies to the curve - because, let's face it, they are a kind of a lifesaver.   Ells is notorious for Gronk-spiking her pacis on the disgusting floors when we're out shopping, so a pacifier clip is a definite diaper bag essential and something we always like to use when we're out and about.  Madeline's Box has the cutest clips in pretty much any color you can possibly think of - perfect for coordinating with your mini's outfits! ;)  They have braided leather, vintage and softy braided clips (which are crazy soft and very appropriately named, by the way), all in a variety of colors and patterns.  I have a slight floral obsession, so the floral softy was a must-have in my book!  We also got the leather vintage rose, which is a very pretty light pink (almost a neutral).   The leather clips are actually made from a suede microfiber and are cruelty free, which makes them even better.

 

We tested our clips out at Target today and it was a win for both Ellie and I!  I didn't have to worry about packing six binkies for a hour shopping trip and she was so content just playing with the softy material that she almost didn't need anything to put in her mouth... almost! ;)




Ellie kept the clip on at home and really seemed to enjoy having her paci available at her fingertips no matter where she was headed next.  It didn't get in the way of her playing and made it so I wasn't stuck trying to find one of the two dozen pacifiers we have floating around the house every time she wanted to suck on one.  The clip stayed on so well all day and when I took it off of Ellie's sweater after being on for hours, there wasn't even the tiniest mark left behind.  Madeline's Box clips are modern, stylish and functional - I know we're going to be getting a lot of use out of them!



Be sure to head to Madeline's Box and check out all of the adorable clip styles + colors!  They also have a variety of teethers, Naturstutten pacifiers and these really cool emergency contact temporary tattoos that I am definitely going to keep in mind for the future.

A very special thanks to our friends at Madeline's Box for making our lives (and Target trips!) a little bit easier! :)  Happy shopping!!
