How cool are these emoji pillows by our friends over at Throwboy? When the team over at Throwboy sent these over I surprised the boys with them and they were ecstatic! They kept hugging them like they were their brand new friends! Lol! Not only do these pillows look cool, the feel awesome and the boys literally sleep with them, bring them to the couch while they watch TV, take them to the park and hang with them (ha!) and soon you'll also see them in our new video series What if...! So, guess what Throwboy is giving our readers 15% off Throwboy products using code TRISTINANDTYLER for one week only!! So head to their site and see all of the fun designs they have. You're welcome! xo, Tiffany
Tristin + Tyler's mom and producer, Tiffany, takes you behind the scenes of the brand.
Yep, the warmer weather is finally here and it's time to figure out what fun activities to do in the city. When it comes to treats, there are tons of places to grab a cone, but I haven't found a spot that quite compares to Popbar. This cool gelato spot in the west village let's you get creative and customize your own popsicle! Go inside Popbar in this fun episode of What's Up, City Kid?! above. If you don't see it above, click HERE and don't forget to SUBSCRIBE to T+T's YouTube channel to receive all of Tristin + Tyler's videos right in your inbox! Happy weekend!
It's Spring Time and it's also Earth Month, so every year around this time we try to think up some fun, easy craft ideas utilizing recycled or upcycled materials. So instead of throwing away things like an empty water bottle, wine cork or scraps of construction paper, Tristin + Tyler transform them into something new. We headed to one of our favorite TV programs, Better Connecticut, to share what we came up with this year including, a cute chicken craft made from scraps of construction paper, plastic water bottle art and my personal favorite: a lady bug pin and straw identifiers made out of milk jug plastic! Check out Tristin + Tyler's segment below (or HERE if you can't see it below), and stay tuned for full tutorials next week! Happy Weekend!
We are big Stella McCartney Kids fan! It's not hard to tell when you see this and this! So we were SUPER excited to be asked to be part of a kids "selfie" campaign! Stella Kids' came up with the cool idea of having kids rock the brand, while taking selfies and we were so excited to take part along with a few other kiddie influencers. Loving the brights and fun graphics the line has going on for Spring/Summer 2015 - do you see Tyler's shoes?! And Tristin's blazer and chinos are EVERYTHING!
Have you heard of the new kids magazine Hooligans? Today, a team of talented women launch the first issue of the magazine and boy am I excited to check it out - and for just five bucks for the digital issue - I'm all in! This quarterly magazine will feature fashion, art and design inspired by awesome kiddos! In this first issue, Tristin and Tyler were interviewed for Hooligans' "Who's The Boss" feature, where they highlight kids making their way doing what they love! It makes so much sense for the magazine to focus on kids inside and out! Kudos, Hooligans team!!

You may not know this, but Tristin and Tyler model and act individually in addition to working with companies under the "Tristn + Tyler" brand. The boys have an agent and spend a ton of time in and out of auditions after school and on weekends. They book some, don't book others - it's truly a crazy busy game that can really mess with your child's confidence level if they don't get things they really want, but they love the opportunity and challenge to show their stuff, so I make it happen for them!
I'm excited to share a few images from the Kenneth Cole Reaction SS 2015 campaign featuring Tristin! The images are on their website and in a certain department stores - definitely snap a shot and hashtag #tristinandtyler if you ever see them! I am a big fan of Kenneth Cole for boys, their shoes are so durable! What do you think of the images, pretty slick huh? Below are a few behind the scenes images too. Tristin had so much fun playing with the dog that was in the photo studio. He was also a big fan of people waitiing on him, doing his hair and tailoring his outfit. It was cute to see how professional he was during it all.
Oh, and by the way the boys want to start vlogging so look out for some videos on their YouTube channel going behind the scenes of their lives! They are excited to do stuff that's not scripted so this should be interesting...I mean super fun! Subscribe to their YouTube Channel here so you don't miss anything!
So glad Spring is here! The boys are so excited about getting outdoors more and checking out cool places like one of our new favorite spots for a treat, Popbar! You know we are always on the hunt for the coolest hangouts for families, and this place...this place right here, is a winner! On the next episode of What's up City Kid?!, we head to the West Village to go behind the scenes of a gelato shop that allows you to design your own perfect popsicle! Oh, and have you ever heard of hot chocolate on a stick? "What's that?" you ask? Ahh, my friends, you will have to watch the episode to get the chocolate-y scoop!
Tristin got a chance to chat with one of the founders of Popbar, Reuben BenJehuda, and you won't want to miss a peek inside this innovative spot. Here's a few images at from next Thursday's episode to hold you off until it launches. Stay tuned and definitely subscribe to our YouTube Channel here so you don't miss the episode (or anything else) next week!!
