Look who supports Half-Pint!

Without each and every one of these fantastic businesses, we couldn’t make Half-Pint Resale a reality. You’ll want to check out their postcards in your bags and their tables at the sale – there will be drawings, awesome coupons, and even activities for your kids!!! And when you are out in the community supporting these fine folks, be sure to say THANK YOU for all they do to make this great community resource available.

First Moments Photography – the official photographer of the Fall 2012 Half-Pint Resale, and specializes in capturing life’s intimate moments!   Our family had Danielle take our first family photos, and she even survived past my child screaming “NO PICTURES”, and gave us great results.   See all of the fun from the Spring 2012 sale, and don’t forget to join us for the PHOTO BOOTH at this year’s sale!

Hula-Frog – Fun things for Kids to Do.  Have you checked out Hulafrog yet?  Visit madison.hulafrog.com, subscribe to their newsletter for FREE and get their Our Pick emails & The Weekend Guide to find out about can’t miss activities, deals and events for families.  We love that they send us emails to remind us of fun happening around town.  Your kids will thank you for it!

Happy Bambino, LLC – Madison’s premier place to get  quality pregnancy and parenting resources, safe, green, locally-made products and  caring, hands-on support  – from pre-conception through birth and beyond.  If you are pregnant or a new parent, HB is the place to go. Their parenting resources and groups are out of this world.  They personally helped me through some major breastfeeding struggles, introduced me to several of my bestest friends, and saved my wallet issues (which are great, mind you) with their JuJeBe line.  AND on top of this, they’ve been HUGE Half-Pint supporters and such good friends us and care so much about their community.

YumTum  – The best baby and toddler food on the planet!  It doesn’t get better than fresh, organic and local – AND available in your neighborhood grocery store’s frozen case.  It’s baby food you can trust!  You can see it in the color and feel it in the consistency of the food.  It’s real stuff, for your growing babe and toddler.   Now available in 10 local grocery stores!  Such a great addition to our local community.

Mother Nature’s Diaper Service – Delivering fresh cloth diapers to your home in the Dane County area!  Mother Nature’s Diaper Service is greater Madison’s premier all-natural cotton diaper service!  It is the most simple and cost-effective way to use cloth diapers.  Since there is no rinsing or soaking of the used diapers, it’s just a matter of putting them out on your porch step on your designated weekly delivery day.  They bring a fresh bundle to you according to your specific requests for size, number and style!  They make cloth diapering convenient!

Madison Homebirth Collective –  Pregnant – have you talked to a midwife yet?  Madison home birth midwives offer comprehensive prenatal, birth and postpartum care for families in Madison and the surrounding areas. They are a group of independent midwifery practices that work collectively to promote safe, affordable options for families during the childbearing year.  A Midwifery Model of Care offers: Family centered care, Continuous support, Individualized education and counseling, Minimized technological interventions, and Affordable and sustainable choices.  We love their new website, where we can find information about several options at once.

Swim East – Making the water a safer place.  We have sung the praises of Swim East  and Swim West for years, and are continuing to do so.  Only a few years into swimming, the eldest of our kids can be found doing backstroke the length of the pool.  And we’ve seen the magic first hand that turns a child that transforms from hating the water to laughing and giggling all throughout class.   With so many places to swim in and around Madison, having a child who is safe around water is a must.  And we find the warm pool added fun in winter!

Madison Children’s Museum – an award-winning destination for fun family activities and hands-on learning.  There’s always something new to do at Madison Children’s Museum, where they connect children with their families, their communities, and the world beyond through discovery learning and creative play. They offer exciting exhibits, classes, events, and so much more!   Our children, even the eldest of them all, frequently ask to go back.  From duck-tape wallets to glow in the dark fun, it can’t be beat.

The Little Gym of Middleton – building self-confidence, one humongous grin at a time.   Little people need a gym all their size – that is where the Little Gym comes in.   They encourage playful development, and non-competitive serious play.  With winter around the corner, every family needs a place to go and romp around and let out all of that energy in a positive, fun way.  It’s a perfect way to start an active life!

Busy Barns Adventure Farm – Growing Memories, Harvesting Fun!    Busy Barns Adventure Farm happily invites you and your family to join them for their fall Autumn Adventures. Make plans to spend the day on the farm as you interact with the animals, play in the corn and straw, sit on the antique tractors, take in a puppet show, scurry down the rabbit hole slide, sway on the pony swings, complete the scavenger hunt or conquer the trivia corn maze, select the perfect pumpkin, and enjoy a caramel apple delight!

Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream – making and selling over 110 flavors of Wisconsin’s finest super-premium ice cream. You want nutrition?
