Cool kids’ clothes ripe for the picking

I’ve always loved early fall for the chance to go apple picking (and the subsequent homemade apple treats!) But long after the apples are gone from the trees, there will be plenty of ways to celebrate apple season with some adorable graphic clothing that’s ripe for the picking. –Christina Apples, apples, everywhere on this Smafolk purple apple-print dress with bright green trim. You’ll be importing these apples from the UK, but this versatile dress will be fashion-fresh for a good long time.  Elizabeth Horton’s nostalgic graphic tee is pure awwww for those of us with growing-up-fast boys. The chocolate-brown...

Obsessed with Pinterest as we are? Here are 5 of our favorite pins this week. The new Tabeo Android Tablet for kids is here–this will be big news for the holidays. Please tell us where we can wear these gorgeous shoes. We need an excuse! This hand-knit baby hat is not only hilarious, it’s a perfect lazy new mom’s Halloween costume. One of the coolest kids’ albums is one we listened to as kids too. Sniff. We love you Jack...

Volcom, Yo Gabba Gabba and Jack Black = skate culture awesomesauce

Volcom is my kids’ absolute obsession around these parts. They’re hardcore skateboarders, and Volcom represents everything that is awesome about skater culture. One of my sons insists on only wearing shirts emblazoned with their logo. He has two, and if they’re dirty? No worries. He will gladly dig them out of the laundry basket. Talk about brand loyalty at six years old!  And now Volcom’s newest collaboration is the raddest thing since sliced bread, because they have figured out a way to raise the roof on cool. Intrigued? Oh, you should be. Volcom and Yo Gabba Gabba have joined...

Ahoy! Plunder this treasure of adorable shirts for your favorite matey

Avast me hearties, it’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day! And if you have a little landlubber who likes to plunder your desk drawers and yell arrrrrrr at all hours of the day and night, we have got the cutest little tee to add to your booty. The Pepe the Pirate tee from b. childrenswear features a kid-friendly design for kiddos with an affection for life on the high seas. I’d call the design “pirate lite” since Pepe looks like he’d be perfectly amenable to swabbing the deck a second or third time, instead of doing something truly lawless. If...

Sports jerseys from a time when you could actually afford to see the game in person

All kids can rock their little league team uniforms but alas, my kids don’t play traditional team sports and therefore don’t get a complimentary skateboarding jersey (should there be such a thing). They want jerseys, but they want them to be unique and different. Jersey envy? You bet. This sportswear website is the answer to their dreams–and mine–because it’s a fundraising opportunity and a cool thread company. Prep Sportswear lets you choose from shorts, shirts, jerseys and so much more. But my favorite is the remarkably comprehensive vintage team jersey section. We’re talking teams from every state (plus Puerto...

Rock on, Ben Franklin!

My oldest is a budding scientist. He looks up to Ben Franklin the way most people look up to rock stars. For a while, said son was sporting a tri-corn hat to really perfect his Franklin look. That kind of got in the way, and frankly, wool is pretty darn hot. Thankfully for both of us, we have found a different way to share the love. This sweet kids’ t-shirt by Okllo sports Ben Franklin in all of his glory. His hair is down and the bifocals are on. They’ve included one of my favorite Franklin quotes of all times:...

Coming soon to a galaxy far, far away: awesome Star Wars shirts

This boutique line of hand-embroidered shirts brings together three of our favorite things: Star Wars, babies, and sock legs. Also, Wookiees. The new Morfs line from welovefine includes five Star Wars shirts for infants and toddlers that meld retro-esque fabrics with hand embroidery for a unique look. We know your kid is too young to decide between the Empire and the Rebels. But we also know that any kid would look adorable wearing a Chewie this fuzzy. Okay, so maybe you like some power. Maybe your baby snores. Maybe he finds your lack of binkies disturbing. There’s always Darth...

One Jackson – like Threadless for indie kids clothing

When I go shopping for three kids’ clothes for Back to School—or “fall” as we homeschoolers call it—I am always on the lookout for cool, unique styles that my kids won’t see on all of their peers but that won’t also blow my entire budget on an outfit.    So along with shopping some of our favorite sites for kids’ clothes, I am so excited a site that launched yesterday which lets me (and you!) vote for the designs we most want to see our kids wearing. One Jackson operates a lot like CMP favorite Threadless where designs are submitted for...

Cool Olympic tees for our own future Olympians.

Whether or not my kids will one day stand on the podium of some future Olympics is not yet determined—-have they started a category for intense video gaming or speed LEGO building? For now, though, I love these shirts that let them profess their love and support for the games, no matter what their age. –Christina Celebrate the games of the past with the great-looking Vintage Olympics Tees from The Gap including1976 Montreal, 1980 Lake Placid. and even 1924 Paris. I love the irony of my kids wearing a shirt from 1980 which they will think is a relic from...

Say chubby baby

In some neighborhoods, where feeding a baby a single french fry will earn you the disdain of onlooking parents everywhere (would I know of such a thing?) my anti-authority side is loving a line of vaguely irreverent baby and kids clothes that walks right into the realities of our fast food nation. [don’t miss a great discount AND a giveaway after the jump!] How can you not smile at the poppy colors and bold full-color photos of the Eat ‘Em Up Collection from our friends at Psychobaby? From baby tees and flip-flops to to baby bibs (my favorite) I...

Yes you can, kids.

What happens when an artist from Pixar and a designer for the Gap meet, marry, and combine their talents? Tiny Teru tees. And the results are inspirational and awesome. The designs in this line of babies and kids’ shirts are inspired by classic children’s animation–so adorable (my daughter especially loves this baseball tee)–aand are all originally hand-drawn in pencil, mixed media or water colors. But what I love is that each sports a very important message: “I am able.” In fact, every design has some variation on the word “able,” like unforgettable and huggable.                                              ...

Independence Day, Rock Star Style

With Independence Day coming up, I always feel the urge to put my boys in patriotic shirts. But, finding a shirt that is satisfies both the Americana theme and my kids’ rock star style rolled into one? Not an easy feat…until now. [don’t miss a huge discount after the jump] Here’s why this 4 Fathers Concert Tour Shirt is so awesome: it’s got the fab four of presidential history presented as four rockers. I take it Abe Lincoln can really boogie. The back of the shirt even looks like your traditional concert shirt with a list of tour dates...

Cool patriotic kids’ shirts beyond the red, white, and blue

With a husband in the Air Force Reserves, you can bet that Memorial Day means more to us than the unofficial start of summer and a long lazy weekend. And while in years past I deck the kids out in red, white, and blue, this year I’ve got the coolest t-shirts that pay a little homage to exactly what my husband does when he goes off to work. [don’t miss a sweet giveaway after the jump!] The new military kids’ t-shirts from Cool Mom Picks favorite and dad-run business Shirts That Go are so cool that my husband brought them into work to...

Marc Jacobs honors kids with two daddies, or two mommies. And we honor Marc Jacobs.

Obviously, we’ve got Father’s Day on the brain lately. Which means we’re also thinking about fathers of all kinds. Like single dads. And those dads with a second loving dad at home. Evidently, Marc Jacobs is in the same place. So we’re standing up and applauding this beautiful t-shirt he’s created for those very kids. This limited edition organic cotton tee reads If Dad Says No…Ask Dad, and was designed by Jacobs to support the Human Rights Campaign. In fact, a full 100% of the profits go towards the HRC effort towards LGBT equality. (Go, Marc!) It’s a limited edition, with only...

Hooking your boys up for summer, for less

With the official start of summer only two weeks away and the warm weather already here in my neck of the woods, I’ve been sifting through my son’s clothes from last season and realizing that ack, he needs a whole lot for this year’s summer wardrobe. Darn kids, why do they grow so quickly? One of my first stops on the web for boys’ clothes has always been Red 21 Boys, whose stylish, sturdy duds have withstood more than a season’s worth of beating up from my active son. They’ve always got a great sale section, not to mention,...

Because starting today, Gap has joined forces with the quirky, uncommon tees from Threadless in a brand new collection made just for kids.

7 adorable mermaid toys and gifts that have nothing to do with Ariel Barbie

What’s that old adage about how spring is coming, and a young girl’s thoughts turn to mermaids? Oh right, that’s not an adage. Still, my girls seem to be extra interested in them these days, and I’m happy to see so many cropping up that don’t have a wide-release animated feature tie-in. Here, six adorable indie picks for a mermaid-loving little girl. Or hey, little boy. And I wouldn’t blame him one bit. –Liz The Su Chi mermaid t-shirt at Tea Collection (above) is inspired by a Balinese wood carving. Call me stodgy, but I kind of like finding...

The Beastie Boys Adam Yauch – Parents everywhere will miss you

Yesterday, Beastie Boys lovers everywhere collectively gasped with the passing of Adam Yauch. For so many of us, MCA will live on in our MP3 players and iPods–and for some of us, in our mix tapes that are still packed away in boxes somewhere. To celebrate his life and the nostalgia we’re feeling, we rounded-up a few of our favorite Beastie Boys shirts for kids and babies, that will have us singing Brass Monkey in our heads all week long. Above, we’re digging this No Sleep Til Brooklyn onesie from Baltimore-based LittleAtoms on Etsy, available in blue as well as white.   We...

Latino cool for the little ones

As a Hispanic mother, I know first-hand how difficult it is to find children’s products that celebrate our culture without being cheesy. Sure, it’s easy enough to find products for Spanish learners in the US, but there’s more to growing up Hispanic than the ability to roll your Rs and I want my children to appreciate that as early as possible.  I love the t-shirts at Dos Borreguitas because they strike the perfect balance between all-American hipness and Latin tradition. The designs take advantage of the playfulness of the Spanish language and twist traditional sayings into clever designs. My favorite...

The next big fashion designer: your kid

The greatest thing about kid’s fashion is not only can kids get away with being whimsical but they can make statements that adults can’t necessarily make.  My daughter has a tutu skirt that she pairs with neon-green-polka-dotted leggings.  Enough said? If your kid wants to DIY in the clothing department, here’s a really wonderful new option. My Milk and Hunny designed a t-shirt for Petite Parade’s Vogue Kids Fashion Week in a collaboration with the non-profit organization Free Arts NYC, which offers educational arts and mentoring program to underserved kids. Grab this cute tee, and your own kids can...
