"I dream of painting and then I paint my dream" - Vincent Van Gogh
Join us on a journey as we discover a world of watercolors and windmills! Spring into season with bright-colored picks by Imoga, Little Lids, Lanvin and Alivia Simone. They say a picture is worth a thousand words but what's a picture without the perfect palette? Alex Brand's watercolor pad is sure to light up any starry night.
Roses are red…violets are blue…candy is sweet… and these petitePICKS are too! Curious to know what we will be gifting our loved ones this Valentines Day? We all know it’s the thought that counts, so let’s make it a memorable one with ten sweet things that will have you blushing on Cupid’s big day.
They are stories we never forget. The ones with unexpected endings, sharp twists and turns, and filled with a world of wonder and imagination. Remember when you first got asked “Do you like green eggs and ham?” or giggling after being called mommy’s “Little Prince?”
We sure do! Go ahead and get lost in “Charlotte’s Web” while searching for "Madeline" but remember it’s OK to re-read the pages of your book if you don’t understand “Where The Wild Things Are”!
Become a bookworm with these picks by petitePARADE available at Amazon.com:
- Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans (1939) - Sometimes when you’re the smallest you also have to be the bravest.

Over five seasons of petitePARADE have passed and each season our team of designers and talent grows a bit more. Collaboratively developing great ideas, our petiteTEAM gained an extra set of eyes, ears and hands before our October 2013 show in NYC. Anna Soetarso, who’s a master in graphic design and illustrating, joined the parade and hasn’t looked back.
The second we met Anna, alumna of Parsons The New School for Design [a petitePARADE partner], we took a liking to her free-spirited style and professional demeanor. During undergraduate studies her background in internships spanned from luxury labels, Chanel and Hermes which influenced her creative freedom in the industry. Soetarso has been an equestrian rider since 4 years old in Jakarta and rode competitively nationwide. The 22-year-old, native of Indonesia has now lived in NYC for four years.
If you’re one of petitePARADE’s Followers, you may have noticed whimsical graphics accompanying our photos on all of our social media channels. Anna’s illustrations surrounded the petitePARADE 10 Day Countdown sponsored by StyleSight and she’s helped produce content on the petitePARADE website. Anna’s inner-kid spirit makes her the perfect addition to the petitePARADE family.
Anna, Thank You for all your hard work and for sharing your amazing talent with us. petitePARADE's digital platform and adorable illustrations have become apart of the brand and so have you!
Haute, haute, haute...Happy Holidays! Imagine a world where Sir Santa spoke the language of fashion and Mrs.Claus focused her attention on curating the perfect gifts for all the little ones that behaved and made the grades throughout the school year. One can only wish upon a star… but keep in mind that wishes DO come true! As the holiday season approaches, children race against the clock to ensure their holiday wish-list makes it to the North Pole. After getting feedback from Mr. Claus, we’ve narrowed down to seven must-have items every kid is hoping to find under the tree. Happy hunting and a very Happy Holidays from us to you!
