Given that retailer Lillian Vernon filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, I am surprised (and glad) to see that, as of now, they are still in business. I often shop from their kids’ division for cute, very reasonably priced toys, accessories, and personalized gifts. These are just a few of the “Lilly’s Kids” items that have been mega-popular in our household over the past few years. Catch ‘em before the company shuts down!
Plush Puppies with Doghouse (normally $29.98, currently on sale for $19.98). R. got this 3 years ago, and though we lost the house and the dalmation somehow, the other puppies (which she, inexplicably, named “Bumpy,” “Sick,” and “Black,”) still are among her favorite stuffed animals.
Trucks Pencil Case with Pencils ($9.98). My friend Stacey gave these as a party favor and they were a hit. And you can’t beat the price for a personalized gifts. Many designs available.
24-piece Disney Dress-up Trunk ($32.98). Caveat: the trunk itself is pretty flimsy (you’ll need another container after a short time), but the dress-up clothes will get used over and over; they have been worn at playdates at our apartment for years now.
Reversible Sports Nap Pad ($24.98). We started using these when R. went to camp and it’s become a staple. Many designs available and personalization, as always, is free at Lillian Vernon.
