TLB:  What should TLB readers know about Zutano?

Uli:  Zutano holds a special place in the world of children’s fashion.  We are known for our one-of-a kind colorful patterns prints and stylish design.  We have a strong commitment to high quality and a mix-and-match approach that allows moms to create an extraordinarily versatile wardrobe with a smaller number of colorful, modern pieces.  Our inspiration is babies and our signature style is mood-lifting colors that complement each baby’s distinctive personality.

TLB:  Tell us about the name, what was the inspiration behind it?

Uli:  Zutano means “so and so” in Spanish.  A common expression, if you can’t recall someone’s name you might say…”Zutano, fulano, mengano y perengano….”  It is the last word in the Spanish dictionary and it just seemed like a very fun, positive sound.  However, the inspiration behind the brand is and will always be: babies!

Michael and I, my husband and co-founder of Zutano, had babies on the brain long before we had our first daughter, Sofia Pia.  Our history as a company was guided by the limitations we noticed in apparel being offered to new parents.  It just did not reflect the excitement, curiosity and adventure that we expected we would experience as new parents.  I would ask Michael, “would you dress our baby in this?” and the answer was always the same.  So we decided to take matters into our own hands, just before the birth of our first child, and started Zutano in the comfort of our studio apartment in NYC in 1988.

To this day, as both of our daughters are now adults, it remains babies: the simple, pure curiosity, the freshness and excitement in a baby’s eyes that continually ignites a world of color and characters for me.  The Zutano headquarters in Cabot, VT is not only where the line is designed, but also another source of inspiration, a place where natural beauty meets babies and Zutano’s dedication to the belief that every child’s individuality is celebrated.

TLB:  When it comes to selecting gifts of toys and clothes for children, what are your favorite tips?

Uli:  Today’s young families are searching for modern looks that convey the sophistication and unique qualities of their style and baby.  Zutano is a perfect choice, as we offer a vivid approach that captures the attention of anyone looking to add color and positive imagery to their gift selection.  My tip would be to look for something contemporary and fun, yet also practical.  A mix and match approach really magnifies the value of a gift, because it presents the parent with so many options for use.  Parents love Zutano’s whimsical styles and patterns in clothing, socks and children’s bedding.  We guarantee that if you give someone the gift of Zutano, it will never be forgotten!

We advise our friends and family to always feel good about the company that you are buying the gift from, as it does reflect your values.  Always support companies that believe that business has a responsibility to appropriately manage and protect the environment and community through respectful holistic practices locally as well as globally.

At Zutano, we support Educational enrichment programs for children, reproductive rights of women, ending childhood hunger, better healthcare programs, regional scholarship funds, breast feeding education programs, clothing drives and many other non-profit programs locally and abroad.

TLB:  The holiday season can be overwhelming for all of us, even as adults, how can families keep this time of year special without overwhelming small children?

Uli:  Spend time together and enjoy the simple pleasures of the holidays.  For us, this includes sharing meals with family and friends, making some gifts instead of just purchasing them and taking the time to be thoughtful of the needs of others.  This year our hearts go out to those affected by Hurricane Sandy.  We’ve earmarked a percentage of our online sales to go directly to Habitat for Humanity, to help those who have lost homes and property regain the joy of spending the holidays at their own hearth.

  119. Julia Miller says:

    What to get is a tricky one to answer without knowing the kids, but I have to say, their little cloth rattle toys are simply adorable. The Tangerine Lion and Periwinkle Puppy are especially striking. I’d personally lean towards the Periwinkle Puppy as a gift, because its shape is more distinct: http://zutano.com/product/periwinkle-puppy-zutanomal-plush-rattle/ *laugh* Though if she responds to the patterns you usually put her in, Sugarbaby might get a kick out of the Hip Hoppy bunny noted as “boy” because of the bold pattern. http://zutano.com/product/boy-hip-hoppy/ I know most of the babies I’ve been around would love to chew those ears!

  120. I really like Pagoda Baby Button Shirt and the Motorway Baby Pants

  121. brittany k. says:

  128. Such cute stuff!

  129. Ok, here’s my story about my love affair with Zutano:

    When we found out our first baby was a girl, we bought her an outfit. Zutano, of course.
    When our second baby revealed his gender, we didn’t have any money at the time, so we bought him a Zutano hat. On super sale. But it was a hat with planets on it. We ended up naming him Marsden – Mars – so the hat was quite befitting!
    And, in keeping tradition, when we found out our third was a girl, we bought her several Zutano outfits despite still not having money at the time, because it is our favorite children’s clothing brand out there.

    We love Zutano!

  130. Great giveaway!! I love this stuff.

  131. I think this cute little owl dress would be a great gift!
