TushBaby is a new kind of toddler carrier. Say goodbye to complicated straps, bulky carriers, and squirmy toddlers that want “uppies” and then “down” and then “uppies” again. TushBaby gives your little one the perfect little seat that helps to save your arms and hips from carrying them for long periods of time. It is also easy to let them climb up and down without completely unbuckling and re-wrapping traditional baby carriers. And when you’re out an about, TushBaby acts as a diaper bag, too- it has several pockets inside and out that carry your phone, diapers, wipes, snacks, and more. It comes in black, grey, and camo but we are a bit partial to the camo.

Created by a ten-year Army veteran and mom, this unique baby mat ensures that no more plates end up on the floor during meal time, and that toy throwing is kept to a minimum. It is made of high-grade silicone and comes in spearmint or pewter and is easy to clean after each meal. It is great for PCS season – think about those restaurant tables or airplane seat trays – and helps to make sure your baby’s food is clean and safe. It also eliminates the awkward conversation with the stranger behind you when toys end up in their lap.

Car seat safety is super important and the Bubblebum makes it so much easier. This inflatable, narrow, and highly rated car seat solves all the travel and logistical problems that pop up when you have more than two kids in a car seat. It fits between two regular sized carseats in the back of a sedan. It also fits into a backpack (fully-inflated) in case someone else is picking up from school or soccer practice. Older kids who don’t want to be in a booster, but still need one love the seat and the color options it comes in. The Bubblebum makes carpool and PCSing even easier!
Written by a military spouse, this story takes on a child’s perspective of a service member’s deployment. It is a great way to lead the discussion of deployment with your military child, and can help for them to understand why deployments happen and what to expect. Using rhymes and wonderful illustrations, this picture book will help open the door to the discussion of deployment and what it means to serve in the United States military.

Hand-crafted by an Air Force spouse, Sasa Loo dolls are unique, exquisite, and high-quality decor that can be added to any little princess’s room. The designs are all unique and there are several options. One popular option is the new Peony Pixiecorn, or the ever-popular Kokeshi dolls – perfect for those currently or previously stationed in Japan.
Military kids bloom where they are planted, no matter where that is. These cute mommy-and-me military kid tees are from West House, a military spouse-owned clothing and home decor company. They are the perfect combination to show the military child in your life how awesome and resilient they are, even with each and every PCS, deployment, and change that comes along with the military lifestyle.
If your military kid likes arts and crafts (that can be disguised as art, because they’re REALLY learning) check out the Little Dreamer’s Subscription Club. These boxes come in various themes and are perfect for your budding rocket scientist or paleontologist. You will love that each activity in the box is individually wrapped with clear, concise instructions that accompany all needed materials. Each box contains a book that is chock-full of very educational information about your topic. Boxes like these can help pass the time between deployments and other long trainings!
Military kids are tough, resilient, and strong and they don’t even know it. Military life is all they have ever known, so to them this is just life. But we see how hard it can be and we know that this life isn’t easy. That’s why for all of April we are celebrating military kids everywhere, and these gifts are a simple way to say, “Hey, you’re pretty awesome.”
