Shiny, Happy Monsters

May 27, 2010


Okay, I won’t lie to you. Sometimes my little sweet darling of a child can be a monster. Especially if it’s somewhere she doesn’t want to be. Take the doctor’s office. She goes into the appointment knowing that something is up which is probably why there’s a bucket of lollipops at the checkout desk. It is something to look forward to after a tough visit.

She’s a monster. Then she gets a lollipop. Now what is she? She is a monster with a lollipop. And that’s the entire giggle-inducing concept behind this baby t-shirt by Coral and Tusk. Something for them—what kid wouldn’t crack a smile at the sight of a monster enjoying a tasty sugary treat? Something for us—every parent can honestly say that this could be a self-portrait of the boy or girl wearing the shirt. Minus the fuzziness, crazy ears and apparently huge (and sharp) sweet teeth, this monster could be mistaken for my own child on more than one occasion. Happily grinning that she got her candy, knowing that it’s only a matter of time before she strikes again.

The fact that it’s organic is also something to smile about. Soft and touchable, any cuddly monster…I mean, kid…would be happy to snuggle into this shirt for an afternoon of play. And if there’s a lollipop in his future, so be it. After all, even monsters can be sweet. And Estella has a huge collection of baby clothes specially meant for such sweet monsters!
