For our inaugural collection as Wunderkin Co. (formerly Free Babes), we traveled all the way to Columbia River Gorge in Oregon to capture the spirit of adventure. Luke and Mallory Photography beautifully captured the essence of Wunderkin, while the melting snow and green moss served as the perfect spring-time background to our green, mustard and blue tones, and our German-inspired floral prints.
It is still my dream to see our bows as a symbol of the adventure-loving child, being raised by parents who want to nurture them in the journey of becoming exactly who they were created to be. As a mother, I want to raise my daughters and son from the start to become exactly the unique individual they were born to be. It's about nurturing that unbridled childhood spirit that knows exactly how to live.
Our adorable looks were provided by some of my favorite children's clothing companies, Shop Arq, Soor Ploom, Mabo Kids, Gray Label and Carly Megan Shop. The knee socks are by Collegien and you can find select styles in the shop now!
Of course we couldn't release a spring collection without a selection of Liberty of London florals. We loved our holiday velvets and bold fall tones, but there is something so classic about that florals we've been making since the beginning of Wunderkin Co. (Free Babes Handmade)

One of my favorite things about owning a company is building relationships with customers and mamas like me. Like they say, "it's hard raising tiny humans," and we all have this journey in common. I value your opinions so much, which is why you'll see a lot of purple in this spring collection. An overwhelming amount of the Wunderkin Co. audience agreed that this was the color they'd like to see more of.
As always, this spring collection features a wide selection of bows for the smallest of wunderkindreds. I loved the mama and baby shots from our shoot by Luke and Mallory photography. All of the baby-wearing wraps you see are from Wildbird. If you're new to Wunderkin Co., all or our headband bows feature a super soft elastics made to fit your little one's head securely yet comfortably.
Just last week we announced our new name change from Free Babes Handmade to Wunderkin Co. I am so proud that this spring collection is the first that will will be represent the new name. I hope that the Wunderkin brand inspires wonder, adventure, courage. The passion of your child stepping into the world, the bond you as a parent have with your child; I hope you feel a sense that we are all in this together to this epic adventure called life. I hope you love this collection.
We are so excited to be collaborating on our second collaborative collection with fashion designer and blogger, Rachel Parcell. The bows in the collection were inspired by Rachel's elegant and feminine style, as well as the the beautiful bond between her and her adorable daughter Isla.
I’m so excited to announce that today, Free Babes Handmade will become Wunderkin Co. After LOTS of thought, we have decided to make the switch to a new name that we feel embodies our brand and mission.
