SOS Gifts For The Mini Sport


Image Map


We like to call them “lil’ SOS”, and here are some perfect last minute gifts for those sporty little ones, hand picked by a few of our favorite minis: your editor’s niece, ELLIE DIAMOND, 11 years old, and a competitive gymnast for NYC Elite; SOPHIA OSHRIN, almost 9 years old, all around athlete, currently an angel in The Nutcracker, and daughter of Michelle Smith, Founder and Designer of Milly; and Maya Henkin, 11 years old, equestrian, mini yogi, and daughter of big yogi, the righteous Halle Becker.

CLOCKWISE TOP LEFT: RAZOR HOVERTRAX SMART SCOOTER $599. The hottest gift this year is the self-balancing scooter and it’s on top of both Ellie and Maya’s list! There have been some safety issues reported lately with models from unregulated manufacturers, so we’re going with one from a trusted brand we all know, Razor. POLOROID CUBE ACTION HD CAMERA $99. This colorful cube may look like a toy camera but it takes crisp 1080P HD video and 6 megapixel stills. Splash-resistant and shockproof means it’s kid proof too. MILLY MINIS CUPCAKE TEE $65. Like mother like daughter, Pippy (Sophia) picks her mama’s tee. Just like the adult tees and tanks, the Mini Millys feature fun sayings, and while these ones are made for kids, we’d like “Cupcakes for Breakfast” too!

TUBBS SNOWGLOW SNOWSHOES $49.95. Your kids will love snowdays even more with these fun snowshoes featuring LED lights that flash with every step. ZARA TEREZ LIGHTBEAM LEGGINGS $52. Girls go crazy for leggings and Maya thinks this cosmic Lightbeam print from Zara Terez is out of this world! RALPH LAUREN DIAMOND-STITCHED PULLOVER $55. This bright quilted sweatshirt looks great with jeans, leggings or anything on this page! BUREO MINNOW COMPLETE CRUISER SKATEBOARD $149. Help your kids help the planet by cruising on the Minnow. Like all Bureo products, it’s made from recycled fishing nets, a major contributor of ocean pollution.

HERSCHEL SUPPLY HERITAGE KIDS BACKPACK $39. Ellie loves this color popping pint size backpack. It has plenty of room to stash her stuff, and looks awesome hanging on her back too! O’NEILL KIDS EPIC 3/2 WETSUIT $134.95. Your kids will stay warm and look cool surfing or just making waves. NIKE ALLIANCE GRAPHIC REVERSIBLE VEST $100. Pippy suggested a bright puffy vest and we found this reversible one from Nike — polka dot on one side and colorful camo on the other.
