Mamas, have you heard of Fab Kids?
It's an outfit subscription service...for kids.
For $40 per month, they'll send your kid a complete outfit based on his or her tastes. (And like other subscription services, you can easily choose to 'skip' a month.) The styles range from "urban prep" to "rock and roll" (and a bunch of other options in between).
Christina Applegate is the creative partner of Fab Kids, and honestly? I think she nailed it.
The clothes are durable and cool. Instead of babyish teddy bears or "Daddy's little helper!", the boys line has headphone graphics, stripes and camo. In fact, this is some of the best affordable little-boy style I've seen.
My picky little guys agree. They're denim haters, so we all appreciate the wide range of soft pants.
Thank you, Fab Kids, for making soft pants that don't look like sweatpants.
Now, I feel the need to talk about Pax's "outfit" for a sec:
Yeah. Wow. Someone over at Fab Kids is currently banging their head on a desk. (Rest assured - this is NOT one of the monthly Fab Kids outfits.)
Fab Kids sent Raines a couple of outfits in the mail. In the same box. (And this is key.) So I open it, and I'm all "Raines, hey. Look what I asked Fab Kids to send you" completely forgetting that I have more than one child. Horrible, horrible. I know. Of course Pax runs right over and is all "For ME, MUM? You haf sumping for ME???" and is all adorable smiles and big innocent eyes.
Those eyes, Mamas. They kill me.
So then I'm all "Uhhhhh....YEAH, PAX! Yes! There's an outfit for you! Pick which one you want!!"
So he did. In his, ummm...own special way.
So...yeah. The striped shirt came with the plaid pants, the flannel shirt with the gray pants. But, whatever.
Fab Kids, thank you for sending these adorable duds! This tee is still R's favorite.
"It's camo, Mom. Like a real solider."
