Thursday, June 07, 2012 - Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation Celebrity Picnic

We were so thrilled to be included in the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation's "A Time For Heros Celebrity Picnic."  Rumor has it our flip flops for the gift bags were a HUGE hit with revelers sporting them all over the event. 


Glad we could be a part of such an inspiring foundation.

Thursday, May 31, 2012 - The Appaman Monkey Bar Challenge is on!!




We are challenging you to take control of your core and master the Monkey Bars by Labor Day.  We used to be queen of the playground in our spry days  but since mothering children and the joys of aging, the grip and the swing don't work as well.  We used to have stamina to shock our friends...well now it's all coming back!! Let's start a global movement to prove our skillz and impress our kids. A fun challenge, you can take on with your family and friends proving to them that the playground is not just for half pints anymore!!!

Register here: appamanmonkeybar.eventbrite.com

This contest is open to mothers everywhere.  The Appaman Monkey Bar Challenge is on from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  You have all summer to sweat, stretch and swing but by Labor Day it’s go time and you need to send us a video of you in your Appaman glory hitting the bars all the way across.
To get in on the fun we ask you to pledge $25 to the cause.  This will get you registered to receive your Appaman Bar Challenge swag kit.  100% of the proceeds will be donated to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer.  100% of your commitment will be celebrated by Appaman, your children and your friends.

We honor your skillz mom and are psyched to hear about your progress. 
Game on Sisters!

Thursday, May 10, 2012 - Moving on and moving up...We'll miss you, Jen!




It is with a heavy heart that we announce the departure of a trusted and loved employee and friend.  Jennifer Ward is moving on to brighter business.  We have had her fun personality in our office for a couple of years and she has done nothing short of make us laugh and entertain us with her dance moves and bazaar internet searches.  She has graced our office with her boundless talent in the world of design.  In her short time here she was instrumental in launching our e-commerce site, directing the wildly successful Appaman Gowanus Grand Prix, creating our design platform for our retail ventures overseas, and designing our NY Showroom.  You are a great gal Jennifer and we are certain whereever you land will be pleased as punch to have you!!!

Check out Kourtney Kardashian and her adorable son Mason sporting our Track Suit.  This outfit is such a crowd pleaser and has been a part of our collection for many seasons because people can't get enough of it's style.  A great outfit for traveling, for playing and for lounging. This throwback get up works for all ages.  We stock it from 6m - 10.  Get in on the hype.

Tuesday, April 10, 2012 - Feels like Summer already

The crew at Appaman HQ is super excited about summer.  It is warm enough to put on our sandals and get our pedicures so it must be warm enough to start dreaming and preparing for beach days.  Check out our fun in the sun collection, complete with flips flops, boys and girls swim wear, and shades.

Friday, March 30, 2012 - Our Spring / Summer collection .....enjoy!

Thursday, March 15, 2012 - Appaman Artist Capsule Collection : Ron Jones




Every season, we join forces with local graffiti style street artists to create our Artist Capsule Collection. This season comes from NYC based artist, Ron Jones. The collection is inspired by a 1920's Metropolis complete with an Astronaut, Robot and Superhero. Ron has been a staple in the NYC artist street scene for a long time and continues to spread his unique urban contemporary art throughout the streets of NYC! Check out this video interview conducted by a 6 year old fan. Too cute!

Tuesday, January 24, 2012 - Moving on up ... town



We are so excited to announce the expansion of Appaman into the world of showrooms.  In January we opened a beautiful corporate showroom.  We turned to the design savvy of Jennifer Ward of
 Minor Details to help build out the space and the result is fresh, fun and perfect for displaying Appaman.  We then hired the lovely Stephanie Fishman to run said showroom.  Stephanie is the perfect addition to the Appaman team.  She has been in the children's industry for many years and she is as sweet as she is smart so it is a very happy marriage.  Come check us out at 33 west 34th St. Suite 308 or call for an appt.  212 695 0762.  She can also be reached on email at
 stephanie@appaman.com.  

Welcome aboard Stephanie we are happy to have you.

Tuesday, January 10, 2012 - Rev your engines!



To complete our Pay it Forward campaign we ended with a serious boom!!  We hosted the 1st Annual Appaman Gowanus Grand Prix.  After purchasing a couple slot car tracks, endless hours learning how to work them, and brainstorming on a concept, we launched a full scale charity event that provided an amazing family fun day full of racing, sportsmanship, crafts, treats and more.  Everyone had a blast.  We'd like to thank our sponsors IZZE Sparkling Juice for providing beverages, Skinny Pop Popcorn for providing snacks, Whole Foods for providing food, Halyards Bar in Gowanus for hosting the event, and Joshua Paul for donating his time to photograph the event.  We'd also like to give a shout out to all of the participants young and old for coming and to the recipient of our 100% proceeds donation to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer.  We are proud to donate this money to a worthy cause and we look forward to another great day of racing in the not so distant future.  Keep tabs so you can come next time aroun
