Land’s End gets into the girls in STEM trend with cool space tees. Whoo!

As we get ready to send our girls back to school–some of us sooner than others (ahem, Kate in Nashville)–we are so happy to see the trend of science themed tees for girls hitting the bigger retailers, like Lands End. The space tee for girls that they offer, which features a cool solar system design, really is only “for girls” in that it’s got a more narrow, contoured fit with scalloped hems and shirring at the shoulders. The NASA Crew tee for girls is also kind of cool for future Sally Rides.  And yes, there are some space tee designs that get a...

Summer camp care package ideas so cool, the kids might even miss you. Maybe.

If your kids are headed to camp this summer, sending them a cool summer camp care package will make their day. Or week. Even if they didn’t even look back to wave when you dropped them off. We’ve got a whole bunch of fun ideas for care package goodies that, according to our own kids, will make yours proclaim you the best parent in the world to all of his or her bunkmates. Short of sending a life’s supply of candy. Just be sure to check with your camp before sending one out–they all have different care package rules, especially when it comes...

Cool daddy and me shirts for Father’s Day that actually are.

We’re not always fans of the matchy-matchy daddy and me shirts, but if there’s one time that we think it’s pretty fun, it’s Father’s Day. Especially if you’ve got a new kid that just made Daddy a Daddy. So even slight cynics like us love the decidedly non-cutesie selection of clever daddy and me shirts from long-time favorite  shop, Twisted Twee. More quirky than sugary sweet, what I really like is that the two shirt designs are related, but don’t quite match. I’d love to see that lightbulb moment as people see the pair together and figure out how the t-shirts relate to each other, like the...

Science t-shirts that help kids tell the pedipalp from the chelicarae

My kids never just want to know what something is. They also need to know where it’s from, what it does, what it eats, and why it makes that weird noise. If your kids want all the answers too, check out these adorably informative science t-shirts for kids from Elemental Ts. Each image is a labeled anatomical diagram just like you find in science textbooks. (Wait, do kids still use actual textbooks anymore?)   Hand-printed in Brooklyn by two clearly cool Brooklyn moms, we love the bright colors and hand-illustrated images of animals and robots which are totally great for boys or girls. From frogs to...

What one remarkable family is doing to support adoption

We are lucky to have Kate Etue, one of the most incredible writers and all-around loving, wonderful people on our staff. And when she showed me what she was doing to help support the 147 million orphans around the world, and her own pending adoption, let’s say I grabbed the tissues. Then rushed here to tell you all about it. In that order. It started out with the design of their own lovely adoption t-shirts to raise money from friends for their own adoption. But I think they’d be awesome shirts for anyone supporting adoption in any way. Isn’t the message...

Groovy and modern batik shirts and clothes for kids that don’t feel hippie at all.

The hippie in me has a soft spot for batik style. I love dressing my child in a way that softly suggests our family’s peacekeeping ways, and yet, I know it’s not 1966. So I am all over the funky modern batik  shirts, dresses and pants for kids new from Hiho Batik. Hiho Batik’s new spring collection for kids really has us seeing the handmade light. With throwback images like ring pops, hipster headphones, dreamy clouds and the radness of Brooklyn, I love the 60s-meets-80s vibe. (Except for the Woodstock tee which is definitely 60ss-meets-60s, although the 80s did bring back the whole hippie batik thing…but...

Cool historical shirts for kids, because some of our superheroes are real

I’m the first to freak out over great superhero shirts for my kids (and myself), but there’s something to be said for actual heroes from history. Sure, Thor has a rad hammer, but Abraham Lincoln did real good in the world. So we’re digging these retro-stylish historical shirts for kids, with vintage images of heroes from history.     Wee Rascals is a new mom-run business making stylish, US-made tees and onesies with designs based on old stamps, engravings, and books. There’s a small selection now, ranging from Sir Isaac Newton to Davy Crocket to the Founding Fathers. While I love...

Soft clothing, for kids who never want to get dressed

If you’ve been putting off buying new spring clothes for your growing-like-a-weed child because they find most clothes too scratchy, tight, or rough, check out Soft clothing, a brand we’ve loved since they launched. And get ready to stock your kids’ closets with clothes they’ll actually want to wear. Plus, their new spring line, coming out later this month, is totally cute. Soft’s organic cotton, comfy, and tag-less clothes are created for kids with sensitivity issues like Sensory Processing Disorder, Autism, ADHD, and other medical issues that can cause tactile sensitivity. Even if they aren’t diagnosed with an issue, for...

Warrior Poet Clothing: A cool new line for boys that blends courage with coolness

Finding t-shirts I actually like for my boys has become something of a challenge. They gravitate between wanting to wear soccer jerseys or tees emblazoned with their favorite superhero on their chests. I  pick and choose my battles, so I usually let them head off to school with their choice. I finally found a line of t-shirts that both my sons and I adore equally as much. Warrior Poet Clothing is a terrific collection of cool clothes for boys including graphic t-shirts and hoodies that help promote a larger message of courage. My older son, the fledgling guitar hero, is...

One more way for kids to show their love for animals is to save them

I discovered the wonderful work of the Kenyan rescue charity, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, several years ago, when my parents fostered an orphaned baby elephant on behalf of my children. We continue to follow Kenze‘s progress to this day and we love the frequent and very specific updates we get from them, and news that he’s gone from near starvation to healthy adult now thriving in the wild, even despite the rampant and illegal bands of poachers that still threaten him. Sheldrick’s passionate work gets some ink thanks to avid celeb supporters like Kristin Davis, but otherwise I’m surprised I don’t hear...
