New Dinosaur Kids Clothes!

That’s right… we have gone all prehistoric here at Narwall. Yes, our Monster Letters are a blast but we want to give it up to those “terrible lizards” that roamed our planet millions of years ago.

Let’s meet our new dino friends…

  • Brontosaurus – Brontosaurus name means ‘Thunder Lizard” Think about a big Brontosaur stomping around next storm that comes! This lizard has lumbered onto our Brontosaurus Tshirts:

  • Pterosaur – Pterosaurs are the earliest vertebrates known to have evolved powered flight. 1st flying dinosaurs, awesome! Here is a Pterosaur landing on one of our romper dinosaur onsies:

  • Stegosaurus – They lived during the Late Jurassic period, some 155 to 150 million years ago in what is now western North America. You could dig one up in your backyard!infant onsie creeper stegosaurus
  • T-rex – While everyone thinks of trex as the ultimate predator, many scientists think they may have been actually been scavengers. Think of them as big racoons! Here is this colossal scavenger on our trex onsie:

  • Triceratops – take a rino… add a frill and a couple more horns and you have this plant eating reptile. We even have a Triceratops bib:

We have all these rascals available in a rainbow of colors on our T-shirts, hoodies, and kids and baby clothes.

#clotheswithoutlimits Gender Neutrality

Each day as my 4 and 6 year old daughters get up for school I try to think of a new way to motivate them to get ready quickly. But it became clear that it takes very little convincing them to support gender specific traits. Sort of like how we have to ask and encourage them to eat vegetables, but ice cream takes absolutely no effort.

girls should wear these…

  1. Long hair
  2. Long dresses
  3. Pink and purple
  4. Anything with princesses
  5. High heels and makeup
  6. Seashells on your chest (if you are a mermaid that day)

and boys should wear these…

  1. Whatever as long as its not 1-6 above
  2. Mechanical things like cars, trucks, or planes = ok

If my girls had a closet full of princess dresses, seashells and high heals mornings would probably be much quicker and easier, but there must be another way to help them out of the gender silo.

A new effort called #clotheswithoutlimits is helping to bring together parents to develop more clothing options for kids that avoid gender stereotypes. Kelly Wallace from CNN developed a great summary of the #clotheswithoutlimits effort and there are tons of new stores that have fun gender neutral clothing (that kids actually like).

and Narwall is proud to support #clotheswithoutlimits with our gender-less monster letters designs on our kids t-shirts and hoodies as well as our NEW line of gender neutral dinosaur shirts and baby clothing. Our recently launched  dinosaur designs are perfect for kids. Not girls or boys. Just kids…
