When I became a new mother in 2007, I was surprised to find how difficult it was to find unique clothing for my little boy.
As my husband put it: “Why should our kid have to look like one of the Village People?” (Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but let’s face it, there has to be more choices for boys other than sailor, soldier, footballer!)
With an infant attached to me nearly 24 hours a day, the Internet was my only option for shopping (what else is open at 2 am?!) My husband and I wanted unique, hip, funky, fun – anything that reflects some of our son's developing personality and our lifestyle. We found lots of choices for girls, but not for guys. Nothing there but navy and brown in the most ho-hum styles.
It took some searching but we found quality clothes that are fun, functional, and fashionable and now I’ve assembled them in one convenient online location. And… it’s Canadian!
We hope you enjoy this site and that you find something unique and interesting for that special little boy in your life.
