A Flair for Kids’ Wares


Unique gifts kids will love are often tough to find, but harness the creative talents of local mom entrepreneurs and the results are fun fashions and furnishings full of flare.
Hats Off
Kim Seely and Amanda Feltham had been making their own creations from their homes in Campbell River and selling them on Etsy for a couple of years when they decided to combine their talents and create Toad in a Tree. Toad in a Tree is best known for its innovative and stylish hats that are designed to grow with a child from baby through to young adult. The adjustment toggle allows the hat to form to the child’s head so that fit is always perfect (with no bulging or buckling).

The hats are made from recycled fabrics with a range of hand-felted patches that appeal to all ages and genders (from monsters and bikes to owls and flowers). The line has now expanded to include jackets, skirts, diaper bags and hoodies. Their hats are currently sold in Vancouver through Pebble, at a variety of stores on the Island and through Etsy.
