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,...

Gap Kids + Threadless – now the most indie of tees at the most unlikely of shops

Well lookie here at what Gap is doing these days: taking a page from the Target Shops, West Elm’s indie artist selections, and other mainstream retailer partnerships with the little guys. Because starting today, Gap has joined forces with the quirky, uncommon tees from Threadless in a brand new collection made just for kids. The Gap Threadless tees for kids have launched with five cute designs–of course. After all, they’re all crowdsourced and chosen by you. Lim Heng Swee’s bunny shirt is crossing fingers, ears and legs–not sure if she’s hoping for something or just really has to pee....

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...

Getting creative with kids clothes. And chalk.

We have reached the maximum level of licensed- character and logo tees in our household. Granted, the number is not all that high–our kids are lots of things, but “miniature billboards” doesn’t exactly top the list–but still. We are at capacity. So how excited was I to find a T-shirt that they could truly make their own? We first discovered the Chalkboard Tee by Class Attire a few years back, and were instantly smitten. Now, the company has debuted even more chalkboard tee styles to choose from. The 100% cotton, made-in-the-U.S. tee comes in 18 adorable designs–I love the frame,...

Putting your toddler on the map (er, the map on your toddler)

When I lived in New York City, pre-kids, I always imagined that I’d someday stroll the streets with my theoretical future babies. We’d meet other mini-Manhattanites in Riverside Park, hit Mister Softee for a cone, head downtown to the South Street Seaport Museum, and life would all be so very grand.  But I ended up moving out of the city–way out of the city–a few years before the kids actually materialized. But you know what? Even though my kids aren’t in New York, that doesn’t mean that New York can’t be on them. Or Portland or Paris or Miami...

Print your own Super Bowl championship shirts, right from home

No matter what the outcome of today’s game (go New England!), I hope my kids see a game that reflects the best in sportsmanship (beat the Giants!) and a commitment to trying really hard (whoo! Tom Brady!). Oh, and I may care a little bit about who wins. Which is why I’ve got my eye on a super-cute printable, iron-on image that my kids could wear with pride if (when?) their team wins the big game. And, yeah, there’s one for that other team too. Love Party Printables has a whole roster of cartoon kids holding a little banner for...

Penguin Love

2012 may be the year of the dragon, but the penguin still needs some attention. And  just in time for Valentine’s Day, we’re found one of the cutest ever ways for a baby to wear his love for penguins–or his love for love–on his chest. [don’t miss a limited time discount after the jump] I love the simplicity, the attention to detail, and the yummy organic cotton of this Penguin Love shirt. Plus, it is available as a onesie for even the tiniest lover. It’s all of the fun of a black tie affair without the fuss. -Eva Penguin...

Hit me with your best 80s tee

When my kids were little, I was constantly on the lookout for cool kids tees–something a little different.If you’ve got a thing for rock-inspired tees for your toddler, I’ve got the answer: Little Trendstar. The shirts are clever without being snarky, sweet without being saccharine, and the colors and graphics are fantastic. And as an extra bonus, Little Trendstar’s line is loaded with 80’s references, and who’s not a sucker for those? The Benatar tee (at right) is a perfect combination of punk and princess, without being too much of either. I also really like the Beat Goes On...

Beauty and the bike

Once upon a time, we fell in love with a pink t-shirt of a princess riding a T-Rex. Guess what? Now she’s riding a hog. Forget bad to the bone–she’s bad to the bow. (Because her pigtails have bows, of course.) Our pals at Jusami have struck gold again with the adorable Chopper Girl shirt that proves princesses don’t necessarily need towers or unicorns or princely rescue. This girl just needs her trusty motorcycle (and helmet!), and it’s time for adventure. We love Jusami not only because their designs are delish, but also because their shirts are of super-soft...

Shirts for books

I believe in the essential power of reading–my kids have the stuffed bookcases to prove it. But not every kid does. So I love the idea of this website that lets you buy an amazingly cute, supersoft, combed-cotton T-shirt to get more books in the hands of little ones who don’t have access to them. Did I mention amazingly cute? [don’t miss a great giveaway after the jump!] I can’t get over this StoryTee from the website, OffOurChests. I mean, “Not Photoshopped”–how perfect a statement for our naturally adorable kids in this digitally-enhanced age. The best part: for every StoryTee you...

Lately Lily – World travelers R Us

I don’t have many strong beliefs but one thing I feel very passionately about is travel. We have just this one world provided to us and I believe it is our responsibility as global citizens to get to know it a bit beyond our own backyards. I fully plan on showing my daughter as much of the world as I am able and encouraging her to go out and explore on her own…. but she’s 2. So for now, we’ll start the global education at home with this amazing site.  I was so thrilled with the discovery of the...

Editors Best of 2011: The coolest boys clothes and accessories

We found so many cool boys’ clothes this year, it may be the first year we’ve given boys’ clothes their own category! Enjoy some of these awesome editors’ picks, putting to rest the notion that only girls get the good shopping. Red 21 Boys Kristen: If there’s a piece that juxtaposes classic lines with modern style, it’s this rockin’ skull jacket from Red 21 Boys (at top). I’m always impressed with the quality of their clothes, which means years not weeks of washes and wear. Black Kite kids’ shirts Kristen: In the sea of blue and white (or some...

Great shirts for stylish dreamers, wanderers, and do-gooders

It should always be a joy to do a little online shopping, especially when you’re hoping to see your money do a little good in the world. That’s why Jedidiah is so nice. Every one of their lovely adult shirts and accessories you buy contributes to a worthy cause. This season, a portion of all proceeds from sales goes to StandUp for Kids to help homeless teenagers and at-risk youth. Jedidiah recently raised over $24,000 for their previous charity, Amor, including building two houses and stocking a food pantry in Tijuana–so this is serious business. What do I love...

It’s time to raise the curtain on the coolest Muppets items

We headed off to see The Muppets this past weekend, both for the nostalgia and to introduce my kids to the beloved characters of my younger years. And while I believe that much of this movie would be lost on kids younger than grade school, my older kids were delighted with the music and characters and are now infected with Muppet Mania. But before you head out and get bombarded with all the licensed merchandise this movie will spawn, take a look at some of the coolest Muppet items we’ve found. –Christina The iconic Adidas sneaker (also featured in...

A totally non-ironic, non-cynical, totally happy tee

In a field of ironic, cynical tees for kids (homework sucks, anyone?) I was kind of glad to stumble across this one. Reading simply Today Is the Best Day Ever in big bold type of the FRANKIE SAYS RELAX variety, I could totally see an older kid wearing this for a birthday tee, a graduation ceremony or, come to think of it… in a totally ironic “today sucks” kind of manner. Depends on your kid I guess. The good part is that it comes in big kid sizes. So you can get one for yourself. Who knows, maybe if...

This mummy is yummy

My kids won’t even go into the basement by themselves, so let’s just say we do Halloween Lite around here. For our kinder, gentler Halloween, I’ve found a tee shirt from CMP favorite Threadless that would fit in just fine to our version of the spookiest of holidays. My kids would eat up (heh) Ramen’ses Return tee shirt.The undead has never looked cuter as it takes off from the bowl. Let’s just hope my kids don’t try to recreate it with their next bowl of noodles. Now, that would be scary. –Christina Ge this hilarious  kids mummy t-shirt for...
