Our Story


We're two urban Moms and in 2003, in the midst of the joyous chaos that is Motherhood, we created Psychobaby. Psychobaby is a line of cool, custom kids stuff and custom items for the hip family home. 

We sought out to challenge the personalized gifting world covered with ducks and bunnies. Nothing wrong with it. It's just not our thing. At Psychobaby, you will find our unique designs and our carefully chosen selections are inspired by hip, modern families. Modern families still listen to Rock and Roll, Pop, Punk and everything in between. Modern families are not perfect, and Psychobaby celebrates that truth by offering designs that nod to our less than perfect parenting moments, and even make us laugh in the face of them. But our single biggest inspiration comes from the people in our families that are under three feet high...kids. They are the original punks. Irreverent, free spirits that will not go to the park without wearing their jammies and superhero capes.  

Whether you are shopping for your best friend, your boss or your own little Psychobaby, you more than likely want three things.
  1. Something unique and cool that you can't find everywhere else. Let aunt Susie bring the registered diaper pail!
  2. High quality products at affordable prices.
  3. Speed. Because like most of us, the one thing you don't have an abundance of is time.
Essentially you want to be a gifting hero! No worries, we've got your super-gifting back!  
We create cool products for babies, kids and their families using the highest quality materials. We hand produce each item in-house, and we do it fast! In addition to our awesome line of clothing and accessories for kids, we offer a hip housewares line for the not-so-boring family. 
Each one of Psychobaby's designs is inspired by the funniest, smartest and funkiest irreverent folks we know--- kids! It is their authenticity and expressive individual style that guides us along on all of our new endeavors.

P.S. About our crazy name. . .

When we were new parents, and thought of ourselves as pretty cool chicks who just happened to have a kid, we discovered an interesting phenomena which you might be able to relate to: we'd make a simple plan with another cool couple who didn't have a kid. Two minutes before we were supposed to be at the restaurant or whatever, we'd have to call and cancel our plans. Our friends, reasonably dismayed, would ask why? Phone still in hand, we'd look down at the floor and see a creature somewhat resembling our once adorable kid, only now they were purple, rigid, foaming at the mouth, and making a sound like something between stray cats fighting and a car alarm. Dumbfoundedly we'd mutter into the phone, “Psycho Baby”.

And you know, as “different” of an experience as that was for a couple of rookie parents, we certainly wouldn't trade a second of it! When we created this "different" kind of kids' store to celebrate children's individuality and creativity in a style mash-up, we thought that no other name would do!
