Labor Day Sitewide Sale

Psychobaby's Top Ten Ways to Celebrate Labor Day 2013:
10.  Throw a backyard BBQ!  Of course, you will get stuck washing all the dishes...
9. Go to the beach! You'll make great memories, and still be finding sand in your stuff weeks later...
8. Go boating! Be careful though, there's always a chance of getting eaten by a lake monster...
7. Take the kids to a fun summer movie! Although you will be out about $900 after paying for parking, and the tickets, and popcorn, and candy...
6. Bring a picnic to the park. Watch out for ants. And squirrels. And pigeons.
5. Hit up the pool. ...At least there's no sand?
4. Go visit Grandma & Grandpa! Everyone loves a road trip with little ones. Especially on one of the busiest travel weekends of the year...
3. Brave Target for your last minute school shopping. It's worth putting on your combat gear to get the very last BIG box of crayons.
2. Take a nap. Your kids will definitely leave you alone for an hour, right?
1. Save yourself some stress and save 30%! Stay inside, in the comfort of your air conditioning, and save 30% on EVERYTHING at

Co-Founder, Marlo’s, Go To New Baby Gifts

I get asked over and over again, "what are your favorite baby gifts from Psychobaby?" So, I thought I would finally put together a few of my "go-to- gifts" that have never failed to please over the years. Given how wacky and diverse my friends are, they have to be very versatile! 

For my die hard friends (I'll go on record saying that I am only a fan of soccer, or futbol, sorry!), there is no better gift than our Football Belly gift Set

For the family that is a little more conservative but still would like something with a wee funky edge, I keep the Beastly Boy Set or the Beastly Girl Set on on my list. Also, Appaman launched their first ever season of baby layette. Love, love, love this for any of my new mommy and daddy friends! 

For my uber hip friends, any of our Tiny Tunes baby tees or a Boppin' 2 the Beatz hoodie makes a rockin' first baby gift! When in need of a fool proof gift, I go for a cool personalized baby photo frame or baby blanket. These are great keepsakes that they will never outgrow.

For all of my Chi Town friends, we created the coolest collection of Chicago inspired baby gifts to  show love of our windy city. Second city... said no one!

I know I'm not the only one who knows that eternal bachelor, "Uncle Joel"! We would like to help him find his true love with a little help from a baby magnet wearing our Single Uncle One-Piece. Why HAS he been single so long, anyway?

View all of these ideas and more of my favorites on my Favorite Picks page. 
I hope these help! :)

I always try and remember a little something for the proud Big Brother or Big Sister. A couple of things that I love are our personalized placemats, $10 and our personalized coin purses, $6. 

They are the perfect way to let
So while everyone is fussing over that cute new bundle,

Fashion Picks From a 5 Year Old

Here at Psychobaby, we love sharing our fave kids clothing and accessories with you guys. Sometimes, though, we need to hear what kids want... from kids themselves. We asked our young friend Chloe what her top picks were - she came up with some awesome choices!

First on her list is Rowdy Sprout's Beatles Love Raglan. Chloe said she'd wear this to her first rock concert, or just because, since she "likes rock and roll." She chose our brand new Lil Yellow Sub Placemat in Pink to brighten up breakfast time. (...we're trying to remember a time when breakfast meant fun cereal instead of a very large cup of coffee... ahh, youth!) This fall is an exciting one for our guest stylist, she's starting kindergarten in just a week, and picked out our pink Pop Art Backpack  to take with her, because she's going to be a "super girl" at school this year!

Choosy moms choose Jif, and apparently choosy kids will choose this Moto Club Vest from Appaman. Adamant about her dislike of outerwear, Chloe was still drawn to this puffy vest's awesome bright colors. Along with anything that's hot pink, her current favorite thing is spending the night at Grandma & Grandpa's house. Our Digi Rainbow Pillowcase would help make their extra bedroom more fun, according to Chloe. Lastly, to celebrate the biggest moment to come in 2014 (besides turning 6, of course), she singled out our Only Child Chevron Tee. We hope you get a sister too, Chloe, little brothers are the worst! (Just kidding!)

Big thanks to Miss Chloe for sharing her top picks with us!

Back to School, Psychobaby Style


It's that time of year again! A time that ends the carefree days of ball playing, staying up past bedtime, catching lightning bugs and endless hours playing in the mud, sand, water or whatever else that makes the biggest mess!

Ho hum. We parents pretend to commiserate while we secretly count the days until we can skip back to our cars after dropping little Johnny off and have five whine free minutes! Phew, that felt great to write! It has, in fact, been a long summer. And it's not even over.

The truth is, just about every year at this time, I do count the days for school to start. BUT I will honestly admit, after skipping to my car, it only takes about 30 seconds before I am teary! I miss my whiny, dirty, smelly boys. All at once, I am remembering the many little moments we shared over that long summer and wishing for just one more day!

So, what's the lesson? The summer grass is always greener? The moments fly by too fast? They get big before you want them to be? Yes, yes and yes!

Ok. So now for the non emotional, cool stuff. However you or your kiddos feel about the "big day", your gonna need some cool threads. Our Psychobaby Crew worked hard all summer to put together the coolest collection of clothes and accessories to help your rock stars shine as bright in the hallways as they did during those long summer days! 

We hope you love it as much as we do. ~Marlo

Trend Checklist: A+ Back-to-School Cool

Cool Back to School Gear for Kids 
Grab some new back to school gear and kick off the year in style! We know, after an awesome summer of sun and fun, going back to school feels like this:
...but a new personalized tee or personalized backpack will help make that first day back awesome instead of awful! Although nothing beats a brand new box of crayons (the big box!), our personalized Color Your Love Heart Tee or Don't Color In The Lines Tee are almost as good. Especially if your Psychobaby would rather be drawing than working on their multiplication tables!
We know, we know, math is important. Still, it can be hard to make reading, 'riting, and 'rithmetic entertaining -  so check out some great tips on making homework more fun. We like these creative ideas for spelling practice from
While the kiddos are busy with homework, have a look at our Family Friendly Recipe board on Pinterest. There are some yummy dinner and dessert ideas, but also a lot of healthy and creative snacks that would be great for after school nibbles. Who doesn't want to eat a caterpillar? Well... anyone over the age of 8 probably doesn't... but it sure is cute!
Yum! So before you drag the kids kicking and screaming through the classroom door this fall, make sure you check out all our cool new backpacks, tees, and exclusive back-to-school designs. Who knows, you could score an A+ with your little ones by picking up something new from our awesome selection of back to school fashion and gear!
