Kids & Tweens: Customizing is the Name of the Game
Posted Aug 16 2010 2:43pm
If you're busy getting your kids ready for school, this year is all about customization. Whether it's getting a pair of tricked out kicks, a shirt that you can accessorize with a brand new creation called Switchittz or going old school and sending notes to your friends with stationery that looks like your child, we've got some great finds that'll earn your kids points in the best dressed category this fall!
1. Get Your Kid a Pair of Custom Kicks...
My kids had a ball designing their own Converse sneakers today and it's so much fun that I might even hop on the website and order a pair for myself. My daughter went for turquoise high top sneakers with a leopard stripe and her nickname on the back. My son opted for low tops in blue camouflage and my niece picked out a pretty pair of pink sneakers. Once you design your own Converse, it takes about 3-4 weeks for your shoes to be delivered - let's hope their feet don't grow! Take a look...
2. Kids Shirts by Switchittz
Here's a brand new creation that's sure to be a hit this fall with pre-schoolers to pre-tweens. With Switchittz, your child picks a shirt with a scene that they love - from princess, to outer space, to jungle safari and then they make the t-shirt their own by adding fun patches that you can easily take on and off with velcro. Forget silly bandz! Make a fashion statement this fall with Switchittz ! Available in stores nationwide this October.
3. Get Your Tween to Design their Own Note Cards with Design her Gals
One of my favorite things to do this summer was to design a package of note cards that looked exactly like my daughter. At Design her Gals , your tween can visit the site, customize their gal, dress her up and put her on everything from note cards, to e-messages to note pads and much more. Plus, a portion of all proceeds are donated to the Gal to Gal Foundation, assisting patients and families battling stage IV breast cancer.
