Metro Mama & Metro Baby

By Yasmin Jorge

Baby, it’s getting cold outside. Let’s have a mug of hot chocolate with extra marshmallows and lounge in our snuggly jammies. My kids and I welcome these times – temperatures drop, darker days, and howling winds. We’ll have no worries relaxing in our warm PJs with blankets and pillows.

Baby Steps offers 100% combed cotton pajamas that are extra soft and comfortable for infants and toddlers. The Collection includes sophisticated fashionable prints, such as delicate flowers and polka dots for her, and sports and cars for him, that are easy to mix and match. Baby Steps pjs feature high quality stitching for durability, are designed to minimize shrinkage, and hold up well in repeated washings and dryings – big pluses for savvy Moms!

The company has been designing and distributing pajamas for 20 years to loyal customers. Look for them at Z’baby, Lesters, Denny’s, and Mish Mish (1435 Lexington Avenue between 93rd and 94th streets). or 212-996-MISH (6474).

For the trendy and adventurous by night, Paul Frank Industries has comfy 100% cotton pajama sets in rad red, crank-up-the-base blue, and more bold colors, featuring the notoriously popular Julius Monkey. Small Paul (for 0-24M) and Paul Frank Kids (for size 2-14) will bring smiles to their faces no matter how chilly it gets outdoors. Visit to shop online or find a store near you.

And you know what goes best with those comfy pajamas – how about Zoobie Pets™! The adorable factor goes through the roof with these three-in-one plush friends, soft pillows and warm fleece blankets (generously sized at 53″ X 34″). Zoobies were created by two brothers who wanted to invent something for kids that was fun, innovative and functional. Growing up with seven other siblings, they have insight into this market. Their teamwork resulted in Zoobie Pets – entertaining and comforting for kids and useful for parents when at home or on the road.

Zoobie Pets™ are also easy to use. The durable velcro latches are child friendly and are quickly unfastened to transform the animals into pillows. The zippers located on the bottom of the animals unzip to reveal cozy blankets inside. Blankets can be detached from animals for effortless washing.

Totally squishable and huggable, my toddlers love these plush toys and so will yours. Moms will be pleased with the high-quality novel design, such as individual tags and collars. The stitching is wonderful, especially around the eyes and ears.

So let your kids play, sleep and love their Zoobies pets. Visit to see the variety of Zoobies available from the safari, zoo, bug, wildlife, and barnyard collections. Join the “Zoobie Pets” fan page on Facebook at for your chance to win one of these friends today.

We’re gonna stay in these great pajamas, cuddle with our Zoobies, and watch some cartoons now.
