Made by Angie has a ton of designs to choose from. They have a section for girls, boys and gender neutral styles. I had a hard time deciding which one was my favorite. I loved them all! Check out Made by Angie. Their containers are just too cute and the fabric selection is colorful and funky.

Worth the Wait Baby

Worth the Wait Baby is a children's novelty wear company specializing in fresh, fun and bold graphics. Their tee's have a little attitude, a lot of fun, and express the unique and big personalities that children are inherently born with.

WTWB is owned and operated by stay-at-home mom, artist and graphic designer, Christine Mercer-Vernon. She started her own line of children's tee's and accessories to fill the gap between too cute and too crude, and to create graphically spunky tees to emphasize her little one's personality.

Susannah Banana provides hair clips for this amazing company and Christine is a dream to work with. I can't get enough of their top notch customer service. I just love WTWB's clothing line. Their punkpunkbaby graphics are super edgy and their color selection is great. WTWB has some fun new designs on their homepage. I personally love the Free Spirit with a Little Attitude tee.

Don't bother heading to the mall for shirts this Christmas when Worth the Wait Baby is a mouse click away! Christine is offering Funky Monkey readers 20% off their purchase when used with discount code BANANA. Offer good until December 31, 2009. That's an entire year to enjoy this discount!
Now what are you waiting for?!? Worth the Wait Baby is waiting for you!

Great review and I'm thrilled that you enjoyed our product!  I've already noticed a bunch of new FB likes that look like they came from your giveaway - so thanks!  We really enjoy working with bloggers because you guys are honest and your readers trust your judgement.

Krave Jerky

It was my pleasure working with you.  We ended up getting quite a bit of Facebook likes and Twitter followers + drive traffic to our sites as a direct result of your review.  Thank you! 


They were very pleased with the coverage and the spike in their Facebook likes as a result of your piece.  THANKS!


Thank you for the great Julep Holiday feature on The Funky Monkey!  You were not only informative about Julep and our products but such a genuine supporter and fan, THANK YOU - we greatly appreciate that.  Your response is AMAZING.


I have to say, since I've been researching and working with blogs for promotion, yours is definitely one of the leaders for reader loyalty and interaction. I've run promotions with a few large "social networks/media groups" who did not get anywhere near as much traffic as you got at The Funky Monkey. I'm finding that really top-notch mom-blogs who are consistent, have a solid following and do their own great promotional work have much more impact than media groups who tout themselves as experts and charge an arm and a leg for promotions and advertising. As we move along in this social networking ride, I think the real cream will rise to the top and we'll start to see the true leaders shine through. You'll definitely be one of the few still setting a great example.


holy wow!!!!!  you've had an AMAZING response to the giveaway.

Thanks, Susannah! I loved it, too! I got so many hits on my site, and have a bunch of new fb and twitter fans. I am glad I came across your site!


I just wanted to say thanks again. You have been really wonderful to work with--so on top of things!! I am really excited about all of the comments I have been following on the giveaway--you have quite a following!


I recently worked with Susannah and was a bit skeptical at first as I've never advertised on a blog before. However, I can't say how glad I am that I did! It means so much to me that Susannah made my first experience with online advertising so positive and professional!

She had everything up and ready within the timeline quoted (even quicker) and her rates are some of the most reasonable on the internet. She has a wonderful bunch of followers and truly puts her heart and soul into her many businesses and it shows:) I would recommend this talented lady to anyone and will definitely be working with her again in the future.

Many thanks,

Melissa Jackson
