As those of us past our post-potty training days (hooray!) can attest, cute underwear is a brilliant incentive for kids to ditch the diapers. But a quick look around your local “we sell six-packs of kids’ underwear” store, and it’s clear that the briefs are either plain white, or thin and flimsy, festooned with images of cartoon characters.
[don’t miss a great giveaway after the jump!]
I am beyond happy to have found Underdoodles, a mom-run shop offering adorable 3-packs of organic cotton kids’ underwear
that not only steer clear of TV characters, they steer clear of
stereotypical imagery. No princess crowns here; instead, find themes
like musical instruments, dinosaurs, space, and sea creatures. The
briefs are organic, printed with eco-friendly dyes, beefy thick, and appropriately high-cut. Plus they
come in a super convenient zippered laundry pouch that lets you separate
the clean from the dirty.
They’re not cheap, so it’s not like you’ll buy 30 packs of them, but
they do make a super cute gift for the newly toilet-ready toddler or a kid heading to camp.
My only complaint: They should make all the designs in all the colors
and not necessarily separate them on the site by sex. My daughter’s
favorite happens to be the blue rocket ships. -Liz
Congratulations to Deborah B! She won two sets of Underdoodles for one very happy child.
