Keeping it real, Viewmaster style

Because ironic baby tees featuring all sorts of devices that they will never entirely understand are all the rage these days (you know, rotary phones, Polaroid cameras, I like this one that plays off the retro Viewmaster in a fun new way. Not that you can’t still get a Viewmaster, it’s just the 21st century version is a little lacking, if you ask me. At Little Trendstar, these fun “Keep it Reel” kids’ clothes come as ViewMaster baby onesies, and ViewMaster kids’ tees up in sizes 2T-6T. And hey, maybe it will inspire your kiddo’s obsession with super basic...

Serious scooter style with South African flair

I am obsessed with Vespa scooters. I mean, seriously, what could be better than hopping onto a scooter and zipping off into the sunset in some gorgeous foreign land?

Okay, it’s not exactly like owning this sweet piece of machinery, but this cool kids’ t-shirt does it justice. I’m digging the vintage look on my little guy — it’s got South African flavor without us ever leaving the house, and he loves the bold graphics. If...

From Brooklyn, with love

I am an advocate for shopping online. As a mom, I rarely have time to visit the mall or shop at my favorite local stores.

Brooklyn Makers offers a beautifully curated selection of clothes for boys and girls, creative and educational toys (like these cute ABC peg dolls, seen above), sweet hats and hair accessories. You will also find cool stuff for grownups. And if...

Awesome street clothes. Sesame Street, to be exact.

Seeing as my Christmas card this year was a photograph of me with an 8-foot Cookie Monster (yeah, my kids are in there, too, somewhere), I make no secret of my undying affection for the gang on the street called Sesame. So I’m loving an adorable T-shirt from perennial CMP favorite Threadless, and if you’re a Sesame Street lover, I think you will too.     This cream-colored 100% cotton Sesame Street tee from artist Glen Brogan via the Threadless Sesame Street T-Shirt Design Challenge which we covered has a cool retro feel and a lively spirit as fun as the...

Nununu is a baby and kids label I recently discovered, and instantly fell for. (My daughter owns this alphabet dress in grey, and it’s the best.)

Funky t-shirts are my kids’ uniform. Since my boys share clothing, I need a material that can stand up to my kids’ rugged routines. Oh, and eco-friendly threads are always welcome. Now imagine all this, complete with cool designs created by artists with special needs to support great causes. Yeah, I’m excited too. I am in love with Paper Clouds Apparel. The sweet guitar you see here was designed by an artist with special needs.

Rock star science shirts for rock star kids

The thing about smart kids is that most t-shirts out there are not made for them. You know what I mean. So I was so excited to find this awesome shop that pays homage to everyone from Carl Sagan and Marie Curie to Tesla and Dr. Who. (Who smart kids know was not actually a real doctor.)

Trust us–they have about the coolest Hawking or Copernicus shirt around....

Okay, so we moms of girls try to play it down, but we admit it can be pretty darn fun shopping for them. On the other hand, it can get a little harder as they get older and the designers want our kids to grow up faster than we’d like. So kudos to these brands which really made us happy this year.

Because retro rocks: vintage concert tees for hip kids

Okay, I’ll admit it: I’m probably the least cool parent there is when it comes to music. I did have a brief David Bowie-loving phase, but other than that hip hiccup, my tastes tend more towards maudlin musical theater and 1970s story songs. Which is why I was delighted to find these uber-hip-retro-rock tees for kids–my children won’t suffer the music dork label I’ve carried my entire life. The 60s concert t-shirts from Wolfgang’s Vault carry an amazing pedigree. In the heyday of the rock concert, Bill Graham commissioned incredible works of promotional art, and lucky for us, he preserved quite...

Vampire shirts for halloween, hold the cheesy factor

Nope, it’s not Dracula. It’s not Edward, either. This little guy is waaaaay cuter (sorry, Team Edward). This shirt’s vampire is the real deal: a vampire bat. And he’s pretty adorable, for something that sucks blood. We’ve told you before how much we love the authentically depicted creatures on tees and onesies from BioME5, and this dashing fellow is no exception. Seriously, what could be cooler than a Vampire Bat tee, especially around Halloween? This stylin’ bat is anatomically correct, without a googly eye or hair bow to be found. I especially love that the words “Vampire Bat” are printed upside down on...

Can you tell me how to get…a really cool Sesame Street shirt? (Yup.)

CMP has long adored Kiwi Industries for its super soft, US-made organic kids’ clothing–and we’ve always been partial adorable line of Sesame Street characters. So how excited are we to learn they’ve now given Elmo–and our kids!–some new friends to play with? {Keep reading for an exclusive discount for our readers!} Kiwi Industries‘ interpretations of the Sesame Street characters are awesome: they’re vibrant, artsy-abstract yet totally recognizable. Here’s proof: my addicted-to-Cookie-Monster two-year-old went nuts when I showed him the new Cookie Monster sweater (pictured). And then he asked for an actual cookie…but that’s beside the point. Like before, there’s still a lovable...
