Introducing our latest sponsor, BugsT Shirts, whom I discovered when I went to Children’s Day at the New York Junior League a few weeks ago. In the midst of lots of prim & pretty baby clothes, these funky, squirmy, squiggly T-shirts stood out immediately. If your kid loves little creatures, these shirts are made for him or her.
Created by Claudia and Alexander Ngai from Brooklyn, New York (the pair designed products for museum gift shops & boutiques for more than 15 years), BugsT shirts make dressing fun for kids by displaying one small plastic creature- such as a lizard, dinosaur, and turtle- beneath a clear vinyl window at the center of the shirt. When I first saw these shirts, I thought, “What a great gift for a little boy,” but then I realized girls like my daughter (who claims “I love slimy creepy things, Mom”) would enjoy them just as much. If your princess prefers more delicate creatures, designs such as ladybugs are available, too. Either way, your little one will love to show off his/her newest friend on his/her shirt.
The shirts (which are available as Ts or baseball jerseys) are made of 100% preshrunk cotton and are machine washable and dryable. Sizes run from Toddler 2 to kids’ 16, and adult T’s are available, too. Prices start at $25 for a toddler shirt. Visit BugsT Shirts.
