Mama Runs With Scissors – And Gives Away a Prize

January 26, 2009 2:17 pm

When I stumble around on Etsy, I always look to the seller’s shop name first. It’s akin to judging a book by its cover, I know, but if the name doesn’t strike me, I move on.

A name like Mama Runs With Scissors is like Smucker’s, it has to be good. And Jennifer, said crazy running mama, doesn’t disappoint.

She’s taken the leg warmer craze and gone kick-ass with skulls, unicorns and ninja power for her Kool Kid Legs, and thrown in some twirly handmade tutus and sassy skirts. Mama Runs has taken the traditional (what’s sweeter than a skirt?) and thrown it out the window with her prison stripes skirts with a sweetheart applique and the layers of tutu tulle with a giant belt.

And before you moms of boys think you should pass this one by, her Kool Kid Legs do the impossible and actually STAY UP, so you can slip a pirate pair up his arms to turn his favorite t-shirt into winter wear.

She’s found just the right mix of funk, great quality and decent prices (a tutu and Kool Kid Legs set is just $27, while a onesie and set of legs is $18).

Mama Runs with Scissors is giving one Inside Out winner a Valentine’s Day skirt (any size from 3 months to 9/10) and a pair of Kool Kid Legs of your choice. Want to win?
