I will be the first to admit that I had no idea just how many amazing small businesses there are out there the specialize in kids clothes, accessories, and toys.
As I browse through my Instagram feed, I am floored at the attention to detail, ingenuity, and creativity that abounds in some of these shops. Then when you add in that 99% of these shops are run not only by women but by full-time mothers, I am even more astounded. One of the shops that I adore is run by a mother of a 3 year old and 18 month old, and she sews from midnight to the wee hours of the morning most days, and then she fulfills her job as “mommy” during the day. Seriously. These women embody the meaning of the word “hustle”.
There is one shop that stuck out to me early on, Little Rascals Shop. This particular shop is run by a mother of 3 boys out of Bell Garden, CA, and I love the fun and unique threads that she designs. From her Wild Thing Collection to her Superhero Collection, there is no shortage of creativity and whimsy. I get excited about just about everything she creates.
We recently partnered with Little Rascals Shop, and I picked out a couple of tees and tanks for my kiddos that I couldn’t get enough of as we rolled into summer. They are not printed on cheap threads that stretch out after you put them on for the first time (I’ve purchased a few from other companies that have been more than disappointing), but they are designed for a real, energetic kid in mind. They are durable and ultra-soft, and I kind of wish that I had one in my size. 😉
As the weather continues to warm up and be beautiful here in Nashville, I am pretty sure that my kids will be spending more and more time not only outside, but in these great shirts! Make sure to snag your own at Little Rascals Shop by clicking any of the links on this page. You won’t regret it.
After you are covered in melted ice cream…you hose off of course.
