I’m excited to be starting off reviews on this site with one of the coolest finds for kids who fall into the “monkey” category – just like my kid.
The StinkyKids come from artist and mom Britt Menzies, who likes to joke that “every kid is a little stinker.” Named for the different members of her extended family, the StinkyKids are cute-as-a-button hand-drawn kids who grace her line of shirts for women, girls, toddlers (both boys and girls), and infants plus a series of paintings that will dress up any nursery.
The StinkyKids are cute – but not to the point where you feel like you’re dressing your kid in yet another cartoon character and padding the pockets of some big exec. In fact, Britt sends a porton of the money from every sale to charity – from Books, Bears and Bonnets to help fight cancer to my personal favorite, Girls on the Run, a non-profit that promotes self-respect and a healthy lifestyle in girls. The shirts themselves are printed on a heavy duty cotton that has made it through our washing machine and my daughter’s own running!
And Jillian is a big fan of her “StinkyKids coloring book,” printed right off the site’s coloring pages!
Her motto – “Always Be a Leader of Good” is just the sort of thing any mom can get behind. And Britt has graciously agreed to send a shirt to one mom who has a little stinker of her own at home!
Visit her shop, then come back here to share in comments who your favorite StinkyKid is from Britt’s line. The winner will be chosen at random on September 3, so remember to check back to claim your prize – a t-shirt with your favorite StinkyKid in your child’s size! Remember – if you’re anonymous, I can’t award a prize, so please come up with an alias for identification!!
