I’m sure many of you have wondered just how le•top manages to create kid’s clothes that are ‘super’ – and here is the answer…our very own Wonder Woman – Sylvia!
Sylvia, shown here in her Wonder Woman persona, is our EDI computer specialist – and makes orders ‘magically’ move through the system. Shown with Sylvia is her ‘super daughter’ Melissa! Melissa, who has grown up in front of our very eyes, and is ‘super cute’ is shown with her favorite ‘look-alike’ doll, as a very scary pirate, as beautiful Jasmine from Aladdin’s magic lamp and as Little Bo Peep searching for her sheep.
Happy Halloween from Sylvia’s Super Family!

Mommy, in a few minutes I’m going to have a tantrum because Daddy cooked fish for dinner. And you know that I don’t like fish for dinner.”

Supermodel Heidi Klum and her singer husband Seal have welcomed a new baby girl to their family. The new member of their expanding household was named Lou Sulola Samuel. The couple already have three other children; Johan 2 ½, Henry 4, and Leni 5. The very happy new dad released a charming statement:
“It’s difficult to imagine loving another child as much as you love your existing children,” Seal writes. “Anyone who has a family will tell you this. Where will one find that extra love? If you love your existing children with all of your heart, how then can one possibly find more heart with which to love another?”. “On Friday, Oct. 9, 2009, at 7:46 p.m., the answer to this question came in the form of our fourth child and second daughter,” he continues. “Lou Sulola Samuel was born, and from the moment she looked into both of our eyes, it was endless love at first sight. She is beautiful beyond words and we are happy that she chose us to watch her grow over the coming years.”
Everyone at le•top sends their congratulations to these loving parents!

Every year, like most families, we head out to the pumpkin patch to pick out the perfect pumpkin. Once my husband and I started having children, we didn’t care about the perfect pumpkin anymore. It’s all about taking a thousand pictures and capturing the perfect shot!
For Miranda’s first pumpkin patch photo, I found the biggest pumpkin and leaned her against it since she was only 4 months old. This year, for Paulo, now that he has a big sister to lean on, I made sure to find a cluster of pumpkins and positioned both my little darlings right smack in the center. I love it!
Usually, I prefer both kids wearing their Halloween costumes, but I couldn’t resist putting this adorable green and brown striped coverall from le•top’s 2009 Halloween Fun collection. The best part is the Halloween cat hood with pointy ears. It’s the cat’s meow!

When I was born Rainbow Brite was all the rage (now you can guess my age!) My dad thought I looked like her, orange hair and all, and he lovingly nicknamed me “Rainbow Brite.” To this day he still calls me Rainbow Brite in that affectionate father voice – when he walked me down the aisle at my wedding he said “My Rainbow Brite is all grown up!”
My mom quickly adopted my dad’s nickname for me and decided that for my first true Trick Or Treating adventure she would make me a Rainbow Brite costume. She did an impeccable job! Although I may not look too happy in the picture I can assure you that I LOVED that costume and everything Rainbow Brite – from my sheets, to my wallpaper and especially my prized doll. I believe my mom was able to squeeze me into my ‘perfect costume’ for two years!
For another le•top costume idea try sweet ‘Sophie the poodle’. Keira models the soft pink faux fur coverall with a hood and barking sound.

Barely six months and my little guy has already started to crawl. Now he’s getting into everything! I cannot leave him for one second because if I do, I will find him playing with something other than his toys. His current favorites are: shoes, newspapers and electrical cords. Ugh! I miss the days when I can lay him on his blanket and know he’s not going to roll over anywhere.

Our Accounting Supervisor Tiffany shared her photos from Halloween past. Tiffany is really a ‘doll’ – and her Halloween ideas just confirmed what we already knew!
Counting through the photos:
- Tiffany as a real little princess
- Tiffany channeling her Holly Hobby doll
- This is why she loves dolls!
- Her parents dressed as Raggedy Ann and Andy!
- And she never grew up…as a baby doll with her son Josh!
If you’re looking for a cute le•top costume to dress your little one, try Riley the Puppy with a barking sound. It’s a soft faux fur coverall with hood.

We are so excited – Halloween is only 11 days away! October is just flying by! (Just like a little bat I know!) Halloween is a holiday that is fun for all ages. It is the one time of the year that you can dress up and pretend to be someone (or something!) that you are not! Of course there is the ALL IMPORTANT decision – picking out just the right costume for your little one! We all know that our photograph album will be graced with the darling pics of “Halloween Past” – and you want the perfect look! The wonderful le●top staff has decided to step in and contribute their last minute costume ideas. We will be posting our cute and silly photos of “Halloween Past” every day until the “Big Day” arrives! Be sure to visit our blog to be inspired by pictures of us as kids, or as adults (acting like kids!) in our Halloween costumes. We are looking forward to showing off the most adorable, the silliest and the spookiest!
Check back – hopefully our costumes will spark some great ideas for your Halloween celebration!
First up to the plate…is me! Here I am at 5 years old in my very favorite costume. The ultimate ‘little girl’ look – a pink fairy costume complete with tiara, wand and wings! After Halloween was long past I would walk around the house wearing my very cool wings – I may have slept in them as well!
Check back tomorrow for a new costume idea!
