Biome 5. (Sounds so X Files, doesn’t it?) The 26 organic cotton shirts feature modern duotones of real, as-they-are-in-nature animals in striking, not-quite-in-nature color combos.I will be honest, when I got wind of another line of alphabet tees for tots, I wasn’t expecting much. But whoa! Where are the silly illustrations? Where’s that old chestnut, C is for Cat?Clearly these are no ordinary alphabet tees–they’re the result of The Alphabet Project from
It’s all the thinking of a couple of architectural designers who are so smart it made my head hurt a little to read their explanation about why the animal names on the shirts are upside down. But then I saw them on kids who couldn’t stop looking at their own shirts, feeling special that those words were just for them to read. And I got it.
Like I said, smart.
By the way, Biome 5’s website has about the cutest photo gallery you’ve ever seen. –Liz
Congrats to winners Shannon S and Lauren D who each won a tee of their choice.
Hi! We’re Kristen + Liz!
We started Cool Mom Picks in 2006 to help make life cooler, easier, more organized, more meaningful, and more fun for parents of all kinds.
Trivia: It was called Cool Mom Sh*t for the first two days. (Yeah, we rethought that.)
We had no idea our site would grow to become a major lifestyle network, that we'd end up sharing our finds with the TODAY Show and Martha Stewart, that we'd be able to make a real difference for so many small businesses and women-run companies, or that we'd end up with an incredible community of the coolest readers on the planet. (If we do say so ourselves).
But we did.
And we still love what we do every single day.
We're so glad you're here.
