Web Site Improvement

We wanted to make you aware of a small but important update to our web site's home page.

In the past, many of our customers expressed that they would like to search by Size or Brand without using the search box in the upper left corner of our home page. We found this an interesting request being that you could in fact search by Size and/or Brand by clicking the "Advanced Search" link in the upper right corner. Well, after listening to your suggestions, we realized that "Advanced Search" was not the most effective way to communicate this function, so we changed this text to "Search by Size or Brand" See the illustration below:

Thank you for bringing this to our attention! We hope this makes shopping at a little easier. Searching by Size and/or Brand is a great way to return relevant results and quickly find what you are looking for. Go check it out!

If you have any other feedback or suggestions regarding our website,, please comment on this post or email us at

Picks for Parents - Thanksgiving Crafts

We really love these fun, easy ideas from No Fuss Fabulous to make Thanksgiving special for the little ones! It's all about creating a super cute "Kid's Table" that will keep them occupied and make the holiday extra special.

How cute is this mason jar centerpiece filled with crayons they can use to draw on tiny pumpkins or their coloring table mat? Take the pumpkin home and display their art. What parent is not proud of their little artists?

Here's another cute idea from Get the kids involved before the festivities by creating these whimsical thumb print turkey place cards for the entire family.

If you have a craft idea you would like to share, we would love to hear from you! Please contact us at

A CWDkids' Spotting

We loved the following story submitted by one of our customers! If you have a great story and/or photo, please send it to us at Also, remember we are accepting submissions for our Holiday Photo Giveaway from now until December 14. Click here for rules.

Dear Cathy,

On the CWDkids web page, I've read the reader posts and seen the pictures featuring siblings as well as best friends in matching or coordinating outfits, but I'll guess that you've never featured three kids who met BECAUSE they were wearing CWDkids outfits!

My daughter Hannah is tall, so I thought the giraffe dress would be perfect for her. We got dressed up to go to the Houston Symphony Family Series. Before the concert, the musicians offer a "Musical Petting Zoo," where children are allowed to "pet" the instruments, and Hannah loved being dressed in a giraffe dress while on her musical safari adventure.

As we were leaving the performance, Hannah pointed and said, "Look, Mommy! Those kids look like zebras!" I quickly flagged their mom down and asked to take a quick group picture with one giraffe and two zebras! After raving about how much we love your catalog and clothes, Margaret, their mom, and I exchanged emails, and I promised to send her the photo. The kids had a WILD time meeting each other, and we hope you'll feature their picture in your catalog or on your web site.

Ellen and Margaret
