So…you’ve got a new kid on the block and she wants to fit in and be popular right away?  No problem!  Accessories to the fore!  Just check out that cute little one and get a feel for who she is and what she likes.  A Princess?  A little Bohemian?  You can give her a special edge, a special look, a kind of “I am an up and coming fashionista” that will make all the other kids in the neighborhood sit up and take notice.  Wow!  We’re on the road to celebrity!

IS SHE A TRENDY KID? Well, then, what’s hot in the adult world?  Scale it down and voila!  You’ve got the cutest, best possible accessories for this little cuddle bug.  All kids want to look like grown-ups!  And, they all have particular fashion stories that appeal most to them. One may love skirts and ruffles.  The other may be in love with jeans and big shirts.

The Gothic kid is especially trendy.  Get in on some products with studs.  Some black stuff.  Add on some wash-away tattoo products for add-on sales! This is a real fun arena for imaginative wardrobe looks.  Think about little black sunglasses for an edgy expression. Bracelets with a cross bones design.  Don’t make anything to macabre…just fun!  Give it all a vroom-vroom motorcycle feel with silver metal, too.

ANOTHER TRENDY LOOK FOR KIDS IS BOHEMIAN.  This is the real GAP KIDS original.  Think in terms of great looking jeans and layered t-shirts with adorable jackets.  Add some chains.  Some fun pins. Caps are a real natural for this look. So are spiffy little scarves. Remember:  A lot of these accessories will be purchased as gifts, so keep the prices reasonable, and dress up the products with a little fancy packaging.  That can be as simple as a brightly colored piece of tissue paper!

HEY, LET’S GET THESE TRENDS ON WITH SOME REAL COOL ACCESSORIES!  TRY THESE:

  • Colored stones kid necklace set.

The CLASSIC Kid: What looks more impressive than a royal child?  Someone who might be wandering around the grounds of Buckingham Palace?  This is a look for the ages!  Colors here are not necessarily more muted, just not so blaring.  Keep to deep greens and wines, whites and pretty tans and pinks.  Anything with pearls gives beauty to this look.  Themes that work well here are floral or fauna.  Little butterflies.  Vines. Posies.

You can also get some great classic looks with less formal accessories.  Jewelry that includes themes that never die:  Little hearts.  Stars.  Circles.  Products that do the trick include sweet chain handle bags and adorable charm bracelets with fun subjects kids will love.

FINDING THE PERFECT GIFT FOR A CHILD IS ONLY A HOPSCOTCH AWAY!  HERE ARE SOME GREAT PRODUCTS TO START WITH:

  • Children’s praying hands jewelry, silver plated with fiber optic beads.
  • Pink cord and beading make up this flower blossom children’s necklace and bracelet.

The PRINCESS:  What little girl doesn’t dream of being a princess?  This one is not so much British, however, it is more the fantastic variety from fairy tale wonder-ment.  Here is the Sleeping Beauty.  Snow White.  Beautiful clothes and lots and lots of glitz and little girl glamour. Tiaras are a natural for this look.  So is anything that shines or glitters or flashes.  Think in terms of ballet costuming.  Beads and faux gemstones make this look a reality.  Bracelets with pretty stones are perfect for a Princess.  So are all kinds of pretty hairpieces and hair accessories.

No little lady would be complete without a charming little handbag, either. Choose one from a bridal collection for real sparkling delight!   — Don’t forget:  These little girls almost invariably wear pierced earrings, and nothing goes better on a princess that pretty little CZ studs in clear or pink!  Wow!

CROWN PRINCESS?  NOW, THAT’S A SPECTACULAR IDEA.  HERE ARE SOME IMAGES FROM THE CLASSICS TO MAKE THE DREAM COME TRUE!

THE RELIGIOUS KID: Holy days and religious rituals make perfect gift giving opportunities for kids. Baptisms, Holy Communions, Confirmations, and Bar Mitzvahs are just a few of the important ceremonial passages many children pass through on their way to adulthood.

If there are other children in the household, don’t leave them out.  Find a small fitting gift to give to them too.  Maybe a little charm for the big sister.  Or a matching cross or Star of David for another sibling.

Religious gifts are also highly desirable for birthdays and graduations.  They may run anywhere from jewelry to small children’s bibles or books on saints.  Putting several different kinds of products together here will often increase the sales you make.   A pretty cross necklace with a little book makes a charming duo…especially popular with children who love to get more than one gift at a time!

Who buys for them?  Parents.  Grandparents.  Aunts and uncles.  That’s who you target!

Everybody enjoys shopping for children.  Even when the primary purchase is for an adult, it isn’t hard to add on a gift for a child.  Have such gifts available all the time, and you’re sure to increase your sales substantially!
