A Pure & Honest Moment

We recently received this picture and email from one of our customers and just had to share! Her little girl, 5, and little boy, 1, received coordinating outfits from Pure & Honest Kids for Christmas and then got Down on the Farm for Parker's first birthday!

My children, Tatum (5) and Parker (1) received these adorable Down on the Farm coordinating outfits for Christmas! Parker's overalls and Tatum's dress with leggings look so good on them that I decided to use the same theme for Parker's first birthday party on January 3! We had a cake made and got balloons to match too! Tatum felt like such a special big sister since she was able to 'match' Parker at his 'BIG 1' party! Thanks for helping to make his Down on the Farm party so fun and stylish for my Pure & Honest Kids!

Think your little one would look great Down on the Farm?

We love the Aiko tee from Tea!

A Pure and Honest Moment

We recently received this from one of our customers and just had to share! We definitely call this a Pure and Honest Moment! No crazy characters or over-commercialized play things, just one wholesome pull toy and a great big smile!

My daughter, Taylor, received the lion pull toy from Pure and Honest Kids for her first birthday, and it has quickly become a favorite! It has become such a favorite that sometimes her lion even has to sit on the high chair tray as Taylor eats!!!

Our daughter tows her new lion pull toy, which we have affectionately named "Leo", all around our house. We love it because it is soft, cuddly and colorful, and rolls around the house wherever Taylor goes! We highly recommend this toy for any little one.

Think your little one would love this great toy too?
Choose from a lion, puppy or dinosaur pull toy.
