Fans of Amelia Earhart, Harriet Tubman, Sakakawea (otherwise known as Sacagawea), and Eleanor Roosevelt, rejoice! We found some really cool shirts that celebrate the resilience, imagination, and bravery of these strong American women.
The Great Americans shirts from Okllo Kids Goods are a refreshing take on the powerful women who helped to shape our country. Each shirt is made in the USA of 100% cotton and features an artistic rendition of one of our heroes. The Amelia Earhart one even has a plane on the back.
Sizes for Amelia, Harriet, and Sakakawea run from 18 months to 11 years. The Eleanor Roosevelt tee
is a little more pricey and is sized for kids 4-10 (plus there’s a charcoal gray
tee in adult sizes for me!), but honestly, it’s the prettiest and most wearable rendition of the great lady I’ve ever seen. And printed inside the shirt where no one else can see it are Mrs. Roosevelt’s famous words: “Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one.”
What a great message for our girls to carry with them as they dream of flying, leading, and blazing new trails. -Delilah
