Patch It Up
An uptown girl can never have too many Kate
Spade bags. The company's latest offering? This cute new teddy, just
as hip as the bags and a whole lot cuddlier. Chances are the little
creature will go very nicely with a Spade-handbag collection—the
bears are made of the same fabrics ($95).

Sprucing up your sofa is a breeze if you have
a couple of splashy throw pillows on hand. Thomas Paul’s look
like they’re made of groovy seventies scarves. Bright, bold
pattern is his thing, and even his more traditional styles (Colonial

Like many pint-size Nickelodeon fans, Laura
Cabot swooned for slime when she was a kid, and like most, "we
weren’t allowed to have it in the house," she says. Enter
her new product: Goop, a delectably slimy Day-Glo bubble bath. Moms
can rest assured that it’s nontoxic and nonstick, and that it
won't stain. In four varieties: I Am Mad (fruit-punch fragrance),
Hugs to Go (smells like a sugar cookie), Monsters Be Gone (blackberry
jam), and My Favorite Blanket (fresh laundry) ($12).
