Tooth On the Loose

February 28, 2013 13:58

It’s National Tooth Fairy Day (yes, really!), and we’re lauding the sparkly sprite by asking you to share memorable tooth-losing stories from your household. Post your story in the comments below, and you’ll be entered to win one of Makaboo’s personalized tooth fairy pillows! We'll announce the winner on Monday, March 4.


Sneak Peek

February 18, 2013 13:51

It’s been extra busy lately here at Makaboo HQ. We’re sending record numbers of boos out the door, and it seems like every day brings more and more boxes through our door—the result of all the new products that our founder, Cindy, found at market this year. From pillows to plush toys, totes to time-out mats, we’ve got a ton of super-cute new items coming soon. It’s getting cramped in the shop with all this stuff, but it’s sooo exciting to open all these new packages!

A couple of weeks ago, we put our embroidery department through its paces with a long list of new items to sew, all in preparation for photographing them for our site. The new items will be launching soon, but in the meantime, these outtakes from our photo shoot will give you a sneak peek of what’s to come.

Picture frames and pillows and plush toys, oh my!

We'll admit that it was really tough not to eat the props for our new birthday candleholders ...

... but we distracted ourselves with some new reading material.


And there's much, much more! Check back here for updates on new product launches in the coming weeks!

Names of the Week

Every day, we’re lucky enough to help welcome lots of new babies to the world or help little ones celebrate birthdays by personalizing a Makaboo gift. That means we have a front-row seat for the most popular names at any given moment, and we’re sharing them with you!

We’re introducing a new weekly feature here on the Makaboo blog: Names of the Week. Check back here every Friday afternoon to find out which names we’ve sewn the most of each week, then compare them to our predictions for the most popular names of 2013. Did we get it right?

This week, the names we’ve sewn the most are:




What names do you hear the most often?

Lights, Camera … Spotlight on The Boo!

February 13, 2013 13:43

We were thrilled to get a call last month from producers at All About Business, a local TV program that spotlights St. Louis-area companies. Would we be willing to be interviewed for the show? Ummm, yeah!!

So on a freezing January afternoon, producers and a camera crew filled the shop with lights, wires, cameras and microphones to capture The Boo in action. Makaboo’s chief baby officer Walt, founder Cindy Teasdale McGowan, embroidery manager Angi Templeman and intern extraordinaire Christina Ruggieri all look great on camera, don’t you think? Check ‘em out in the clip below.

Thanks for featuring our story, All About Business!
