Have you been following the news of the royal birth? It seems that Kate Middleton has finally gone into labor, with the newest heir to the throne due to enter the world at any point. Babies are always exciting for us at Babybox.com, and a royal birth is no exception. Will it be a boy or girl? What will they name the prince or princess? Will the baby look like Prince William, Duchess Kate or maybe have some of Great-Grandma Elizabeth in them? We will have to wait and see! As details have been fairly hush hush, it is a waiting game for anyone with royal fever, but we are finally down to the crunch. What is your guess on how the royal birth will turn out? Regardless of the baby’s sex, Babybox.com is excited for the expecting couple. And if we were asked, here are some of the “royal” items we would suggest for them…
Fit for Royalty
First off, you need something to bring the royal baby home in. This beautiful royal layette collection includes 6 pieces of luxurious 100% pima cotton essentials for any baby. The outfit includes three pieces–a long sleeve shirt that snaps on the side and is edged in picot trim, with a matching footed pant and hat. Our signature long sleeve onesie trimmed in the coordinating picot trim is also included along with a bib edged in picot. The double layered blanket measures approximately 26″ x 36″ and is truly luxurious and features the same picot trim. Personalize the shirt, onesie, blanket and bib to make this gift extra special! Outfit available in sizes 0-3 months. Onesie available in sizes 3-6M and 6-12M. Select choice of picot trim: baby blue, baby pink or navy (as shown). Monogram thread color will coordinate with picot trim.
Once you are home, the regal heir needs someplace appropriate to sleep. We all know that first-time Mums like to keep their babies as close as possible, and a cradle by the bed is perfect for Kate and William’s present two bedroom space at Kensington Palace. Luxurious, rich fabrics in tones of gold and ivory add to the elegance of our new Royal Palace cradle linens set by Little Bunny Blue. Cream satin and cotton stripes are accented with a sheer and gold scroll print.
The Royal Palace (3) piece cradle bedding set includes: bumper, sheet, and light cradle blanket. Boudoir pillow may be purchased in the option box below.
We offer window treatments and coordinating crib linens and fabric yardage as an additional request.
Once the new family has moved into their four-storey, 20-room house with a nursery, they will have a little more space for this Royal Iron Crib. Perfect for any royalty, it is one of Corsican’s newest and finest. Corsican has crafted extraordinary iron furniture for more than 40 years. They remain true to classic designs and attention to detail and through their custom designs – reflect the personal taste of each client.
The craftsmanship on this crib is truly regal. The antique brass accents can also be painted at your request. This crib is made with stationary side rails. Mattress height is adjustable. Shown here with an antique white finish.
So the debate is, will the nursery be painted pastel pink or royal blue? We shall find out soon enough! In the interim, give us your best guess.
Should we start measuring the monarch on this “her royal highness” growth chart?
Or shine up the personalized crown for a new little prince?

I have opportunity to surf the net quite a bit over the course of the day. I discover all kinds of interesting things. Like the fact that January is a pretty popular month for observances. For example, did you know that January is Oatmeal Month? It is also Adopt a Rescued Bird Month, Soup Month, Eye Month and Birth Defects Prevention Month. Wow, who knew? The National Cervical Cancer Coalition also recognizes January as Cervical Health Month. And the folks at the California Dried Plum Board celebrate January as Prune Breakfast month too! Don’t forget the people at the Retail Bakers of America or the Tea Council of the USA. They both claim January as Retail Bakers Month and Hot Tea Month respectively. So many celebrations! I suppose that we should toast a few of these worthy causes ourselves at Babybox.com then. So today, we are;
How about starting with a spot of tea as we raise our glass to the Tea council of the USA.
The Poodle Party Garden Tea Set is an enamelware Tea Set your toddler will enjoy for years. The Poodle Party Tea Set is a fun way for your pink princess to pretend its time for high tea! The enamelware set include a teapot, 3 cups and 3 saucers. They are large enough to really hold liquid.
We can’t have tea without a little something to go with it. Wouldn’t baked goods be just the thing! The Retail Bakers of America would probably agree.
Make any child feel important in the kitchen with their very own personalized kid sized royal blue chef’s apron and hat. Piped in bright red with their name in red, Boys and Girls will enjoy dressing up to help Mom and Dad. Personalize it for the young chef!
Apron measures approximately 18.25″ long (without neck strap), 17.5″ wide and ties measure 16″ long on each side.
If you need something to warm up your bones more than that, how about a steamy bowl of soup to sustain you. The Campbell Soup Company of America would approve.
Let your child and practice their abc’s with this clever alphabet soup plate. This non-toxic and dishwasher safe plate is BPA free and ideal for children of all ages. It is made of melamine and is virtually indestructible. This matte finish plate has 10 inches diameter that can also be personalized in your choice of dish style, color and font. It also makes a perfect gift for any child who loves to learn.
Now you should have the strength to go out and rescue a bird or two for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. This should inspire you.This “Birds In A Tree” wall art
from Oopsy Daisy by Rachel Taylor is an attractive wall art which depicts the picture of friendly birds sitting on the tree, colorful butterfly and beautiful flowers. This top quality canvas reproduction is stretched over wood bars with no glass to break. This piece is made using the Giclee printing process and has the look and feel of an original painting. It is equipped with a wire hanger on the back for easy wall displaying so no framing is required. Each canvas is decoratively finished along the 3/4 inch thick sides. It can be wiped clean with a soft, dry cloth. Makes a wonderful addition to any child’s room or playroom. Designed by artist, Rachel Taylor and designer’s biography comes attached to the back.
drawstring gown (blue trim)
And if there is nothing closer to our hearts at Babybox.com, it has to be babies! They are the reason why we came into existence in the first place and of course the health of newborns is of the utmost importance. So to add our voice to National Birth Defects Prevention Month is an honor that we cannot pass up. The health of all babies should be everyone’s top priority and ensuring that children are born as healthy as possible is everyone’s responsibility. So all you pregnant Mommies out there, TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!
