Get the Kids in the Kitchen with the Kinderkitchen Collection

Kuhn Rikon presents Kinderkitchen®, its first collection of kitchen tools designed specifically for children. From the endearing Bluebird Spatula to the sprightly Cockatiel Whisk with one bright pink silicone wire in its plumage, this innovative line lets children explore the wonders of creating meals while inspiring imaginations in the kitchen.

Designed for little hands and curious minds, the colorful collection of whimsical kitchen tools marries high-quality construction with ease of use. Special safety features make the collection ideal for children. The Duck Snippers are mini kitchen shears that are sharp enough to cut veggies but not sharp enough to hurt people, and they come with a yellow duckbill that covers the blades for safe storage.

The tools allow children to work in the kitchen side-by-side with their parents while learning the joys of cooking. The fun and functional Kinderkitchen® line includes Crocodile Jaw Tongs, the Bird's Eye Open Spoon, and more. The collection also includes a handy, washable Tote Bag to store the tools when not in use. Visit

Tribe Debuts Its Head-Turning Collection of Leather Diaper Bags

Since launching in July 2011, premium (Singapore-based) brand Tribe has been turning heads with its inaugural collection of standout leather diaper bags. Hot off the heels of being extremely well-received by industry insiders, celebrities and on-trend parents, Tribe is now entering the U.S. wholesale markets, first at Playtime New York on March 10th-12th 2012, providing U.S. press and retailers with direct access to the brand's collection.

Beautifully styled, casual but refined, and made from high quality leathers, Tribe's collection of diaper bags and accessories resonate with parents who value and appreciate luxury in a form which is compatible with their lifestyles. "Luxury and practicality needn't be mutually exclusive," says Tribe's founder Rosie Jansen. "Before Tribe, the something extra which women were looking for in diaper bags was hard to find because there was no stand-out offering available. Tribe has redefined what a diaper bag should be, and creates diaper bags which women take pleasure in owning."

The signature item in Tribe's collection of diaper bags is the Singapore Sling. Available in an array of refreshingly bright colors (raspberry and sea blue) as well as classic color palettes (midnight, café and cognac), the soft-milled leather bag has become Tribe's signature and best-selling item.
