One of our favorite “Must Have” gifts are the adorable piggy banks from Mud Pie. They are the perfect baby shower gift, birthday gift or Big Brother/Sister gift. Decorated in sports themes or all dressed up in ribbons and bows. We were able to chat with one of the designers from Mud Pie, Lauren McHenry. Lauren has been designing with Mud Pie since 2006 and now a product manager and designer for all of the everything baby collections.
