Seattle is having an identity crisis this summer and has convinced itself that it's Arizona. Or Nevada. Or Mercury. In any case, this is definitely a year to protect your kiddo’s delicate face from harsh solar rays. Just in time: brand new baby bonnets from local designer Plastic Pony, maker of
Momo’s sweet baby kimonos.
Made of adorable Japanese fabrics, the sun hats are 100% cotton, have an adjustable tie and are reversible to a
bright white (most effective for reflecting the scorching sun). Available in two sizes: 3-9 months and 9-18 months. And at $20, they’re perfectly priced for a casual baby gift.
Tis the season for the outdoors. Whether you’re lounging at a bbq or catching some free summertime tunes at Volunteer Park, help keep the tots comfy and burn-free with a local, hand-made, super-kawaii cap.

Momo is the little shop on the corner of Sixth Avenue South and South Jackson Street, the crossroads of Seattle’s Japantown. The historic neighborhood, decimated after the 1942 Executive Order 9066 which forced the removal of all Japanese Americans from the West Coast, is seeing a quiet renewal. Present-day treasures include unique boutiques, galleries, a barbershop and salons, fame-ish sushi restaurants, a landmark tea house and a beautiful secret garden. Come discover the revival!
