~LITTLE TADPOLE DESIGNS~Kid Belts, Nursing Necklaces, Crochet Toys, Paci & Mitt Clips


Little Tadpole Designs was started 6 months after our first child was born in 2009. My shop expanded onto Etsy in January of 2011, and joined here on DiaperSwappers in April that same year.

Thank you so much for checking out my Shop Thread here on DS!

This is where you will find custom soother & mitten clips, as well as Snap! Belts for Preschoolers, Crocheted Dolls & Toys, Nursing / Teether Necklaces, Mitten and Pacifier Clips, and other unique creations!

Each and every item is lovingly made by hand especially for your little one... inspired by our little ones!


I've included just a SAMPING of what I have to offer here... if you see something you are interested and would like to see ALL the color/pattern options (and there is LOTS more), please have a look at my my Etsy Shop for what is currently in stock.

If you would like to make a purchase, you are most welcome to do so through DiaperSwappers simply by sending me a PM and I will automatically apply your DS discount!


Custom MITTEN CLIPS



Mitten Clips are once again available for fall & winter! Avoid mis-matched mittens by using these "handy" mitten clips to keep pairs together, and attached to coats & snowsuits where they belong. Mitten clips are a safe alternative to the old string-through-the-sleeves, and are fun and fashionable too! Plus, they can easily be switched from jacket to coat to snowsuit to storage and come with a 1 season guarantee (if your little one wears them out before the end of the season, they will be repaired at no cost!)





For ribbon options, please see the end of this post, under pacifier clips...

SPECIALS ON PACIFIER & MITTEN CLIPS! Check my Etsy shop for prices if you purchase more than one!

One pair of custom Mitten Clips is $7.00

SNAP BELTS for Preschoolers

These belts are the best for keeping your little one's pants up! Perfect for skinny little tadpoles or for in between sizes when the length is right but the waist is just way too big!

Belts snap on through the back belt loops (leaving the front of the pants free! Great for potty training!) and are totally reversible. Each belt is made with doubled-up snaps for extra security and are made in coordinating colors!










Snap Belts are $8.00CND

All Snap Belts also come with an "instruction" sheet... just in case you are unsure about how to put them on, or are giving them as a gift!


NURSING TEETHER NECKLACES


My Nursing / Teether Necklaces are a natural, beautiful, and functional accessory for breastfeeding moms. Made with a solid hardwood ring, two stone beads, and a black nylon cord. The ring is finished with a light rub of certified organic sunflower oil for a golden sheen.

The wooden ring is perfect for babies who may use it as a teether (excellent while babywearing!) as, unlike stone rings, it is safe for biting on even when those first teeth are in. The semi-precious stone beads are strung onto the hand-knotted cord in such a way that there are held on by being tied to the ring itself, not knotted on individually... which means that they can not come off unless the cord is completely untied. They are tied snug so baby can't get them in their mouths... and, babies love that the beads can move up and down on the cord! The two stones make a light sound when they hit each other and babies enjoy shaking the necklace to hear the sound.

All necklaces come with a card that includes information about the believed properties of the stone and care instructions.







Nursing Necklaces are $17.00CND



CROCHETED TOYS Made to Order Only... please inquire for pricing & current turnaround time







BINKY LEASHES
also knowns as Soother Savers or Pacifier Clips


If you have a "sucky baby" then you need a binky leash! These keep those precious soothers clean and close by at all times! My Binky Leashes are custom made from your choice of over 50 different ribbons!

They feature strong metal clips with plastic "teeth" that are gentle on clothing, and snaps rather than less-secure velcro. They can also be snapped down to a shorter length for when you little one is crawling!

SPECIALS ON PACIFIER & MITTEN CLIPS! Check my Etsy shop for prices if you purchase more than one!



You can also get them for Button-type pacifiers (ie. MAM, Razzbaby, Munchkin, etc.)! The adapters for these come in four translucent color options and cost $2.50cnd each... but you only need one as it can easily be switched from clip to clip!




Binky Leashes are $5.00CND





SOLD OUT: Blue Baby Feet, Buoy O Boy

Re: Interest in AND/OR suggestions for allergy shirts, timeout mats, & apron/art smoc

Great ideas! Looking forward to seeing these made up! I think my girl might like an allergy shirt if it had something fun on it with the message- like an animal picture or something.

Great ideas! I was thinking about the pocket on the apron. What if it was one that could be buttoned up to make a pocket at the bottom or left unbuttoned for just a longer apron? Not sure if it would work, but it just popped into my head. I would definately be interested in the apron and time out mat. I was going to try and make some myself, but if I found a place to get them from and they are super cute....Even better!

Thanks mamas!!

For the allergy shirt I was thinking I'd want ones with animals too. Without giving away all my ideas... my first design for one was a bear with a wooden sign that say "Don't Feed THIS Bear" and underneath "I have allergies".

Good idea on the pocket! It's something that might be worth testing out and seeing if it would be better to be able to do that with the cotton/baking side or the waterproof/art side... and I do have snaps that could work nicely and be easier for kids than buttons. I could offer it as a custom option too. Hmmm.

Maybe an elephant or a squirrel with a nut in a circle with a line through it and the phrase, "No Nuts 4 Me!"?

I love the allergy shirt idea! You might want to consider sizes for older kids, too. My DS is 6 and has dairy problems. He doesn't always stop to think about what is in his food, especially at places like church where his teacher hands out a snack.

Thanks! That's why I wanted to ask for suggestions from the parents! My oldest is only 28months so I was hoping people would let me know what sizes they would like to see.

Here are my drawings for three embroidered allergy shirts so far. What do you think? What other common allergies should I design for besides nuts and dairy? What about a bee allergy... not food but might be good for playdates or picnics?
