We are always on the hunt for whatever gives kids (and their parents) as many options as possible, from their bookshelves to their toy chests to their closets. So allow me to introduce our latest find in fun and funky wardrobe options for all kinds of kids: Lot801. Lot801 was founded at the kitchen table of frustrated Salt Lake City mom Lindsay Isakson who wanted a little more creative wardrobe freedom for her daughter than she...

Cool kids’ tees that help support the endangered animals we love, and make kids feel more empowered too.

We’ve all been saddened by the story of Cecil the Lion this week, and we know a lot of you feel the same way. It’s an especially hard thing to explain to kids who may have heard the news too, since children always have such an an innate fondness for animals. But one thing you can do is to help them feel more empowered, by finding ways to support endangered animals. We’ve talked about many charities in the past that support wildlife around the world. And so many of them sell some really cool tees that support some great animal related causes. Take a...

Peace, love, and Girl Scouts | Thinking : Parent

I was a two-year Brownie, a Girl Scout for less than a year and then…well, I okay, so I was never much of a joiner to begin with. It all came down to the dress in the end; I didn’t want to have to wear one — this was the 70’s after all — and my troop leader wouldn’t allow me the tomboy sash-only concession that my Brownie leader did. That’s how I became a third-grade Girl Scout drop-out. Don’t worry, it didn’t lead to a pre-adolescent life of petty crime and clove cigarettes. That would come way later.

A tropical trend: pineapple clothes for kids are fashion’s fruit du jour

If my preschooler had his druthers, all of his shirts would be emblazoned with construction vehicles or superheroes. Luckily, he doesn’t have 100% control over his wardrobe, which means I can introduce fun prints and patterns. And this season, I’m all about pineapples. Yes, the tropical fruit is trending in kids’ fashion, giving everything from socks to dresses to denim shorts a relaxed beachy vibe. Since summer break is still weeks away, what kid couldn’t use a little vacation inspiration right now? Here are a few fun pieces that I’m really liking for kids. CMP is an rstyle affiliate   The...

Getting back to basics. Affordable, lovely basics.

While I’m all for buying a few special items for my kids, like a crazy pair of polka-dot Doc Martens or some fun fuzzy vest they’re coveting, mostly their wardrobes consist of affordable basics that can mix or match with the rest. Like, 20 different pairs of black leggings. Which is why the new kids label, Primary, is the kind that will make parents ask, “where have you been all my life?!” Or at least all your kids’ lives. If they’re about ten and under. – Don’t miss a fantastic offer exclusively for CMP readers below –  The goal of...

Irish rock band t-shirts: Cool on kids every day of the year

While a ton of kids and babies are going to end up with “Kiss me I’m Irish” shirts today, we thought we’d take a slightly different tack and track down some cool kids’ t-shirts featuring some of our favorite Irish rock bands. Because St. Patrick’s Day or any other day, it’s never too young to introduce your kid to Bob Geldoff — and the fact that Irish music doesn’t necessarily mean jigs and drinking songs. But hey, should the Boomtown Rats not be your thing, at Red Molotov you can also find nice, heavyweight cotton tribute tees to The Pogues and of...

A monster t-shirt kids are guaranteed to love. Because they design it.

It’s hard to find a kid who doesn’t love customizing things to make them their own, from a blank notebook to their bedroom walls. And while I’d rather not have the interior of my car “customized” with stickers, I do want to foster my kids’ love for artistic expression. So, I kind of geeked out over the customizable t-shirt kits by Creatures & Features. And I think they will too. Each kit includes an organic, US-made t-shirt with a monster outline on it and a set of features you iron-on to create a design that’s all your own. They call them a “boy kit” and “girl kit,” but...

American Museum of Natural History and J. Crew make history with cool science t-shirts

When I took my son to the American Museum of Natural History in NYC last summer, I realized that I’d forgotten how full of fun and wonder museums can be. The fab collection of museum-inspired science t-shirts for kids from J. Crew for AMNH is bringing it all back–for him and for me. The six designs are largely gender neutral and integrate fun science facts. How long are a T. Rex’s teeth? What will you find in the Hall of Gems? I’m not going to tell you. But the shirts can lead you to the answers.   Related: Rock star science shirts for rock...

Home T shirts : When you’re proud to be…well, from wherever you’re from.

I smiled right away when I discovered Home T shirts, and you probably will too. Because hey, Texans aren’t the only ones happy to show a little state pride. These super soft, US-made adult tees, kids tees, and baby onesies cover all 50 states, plus Puerto Rico, Cuba, the UK, and even the entire continents of Australia and Africa, simply featuring the word Home over a screen-printed state silhouette. And in a thorough nod to democracy, even DC gets representation here. I support that.   I only feel bad for Colorado Home T wearers, because it just looks like the word Colorado over a big...
