Finding the right baby gift can be challenging. The best gifts are ones that are user friendly, unique, or that solve a problem. All of the following gifts fit into one or more of those categories.
The wise woman behind Magnificent Baby® came up with the concept for the product line after struggling to put a Velcro bib on her nephew and then seeing him cry from the Velcro ripping out his fine baby hair. After spending two years on research and development, the Magnificent Baby® product line featuring magnetic fasteners was ready to wear. (Watch a video clip to see how the magnetic fasteners work.) The product line includes baby clothing, toddler clothing, and various accessories. Magnificent Baby® focuses on high style, high function, and high comfort.
