Sesame Street at Cupcake? No Way.

Cupcake Jenny

Anyone who knows me and my buying style knows that I typically stay away from any and all clothing with characters. Whether it's a onesie with classic characters such as teddy bears and ducks or a t-shirt with Elmo or Bugs Bunny, they're just not my thing. So when I walked into one of my favorite showrooms and one of my favorite reps exclaimed "I can't wait to show you our new Sesame Street line" I seriously thought she had lost her mind (and I'm sure the look on my face told her so)! She preceded to pull out a colorful bunch of t-shirts and hats and they just happened to be the most adorable Oscar the Grouch, Cookie Monster, Abbie Cadabby and Elmo t-shirts I had ever seen. I'm not kidding you, it was love at first sight. First of all, each t-shirt is handmade and one-of-a-kind. HUGE plus number one! Second, the sleeves are made out of socks. Are you kidding me? How genius and how incredibly cool is that?! Third, the fabrics she uses are all recycled- score for the planet! Fourth, the tees are all made in the US- score for the good ole' USofA. And the best part? They're the most artistically adorable renditions of Sesame Street characters I've ever seen. This was one of those moments that seriously made me think, "Now why didn't I think of that?" Well since I didn't, I'm glad that designer-mama Julie Barger did when she created her innovative company Morf's Brand. Best known for her sock monkey designs and fantastic use of socks, leg warmers and recycled jersey, she's outdone herself with this new Sesame Street collection! These truly are mini, wearable works of art and we're so, so excited to have them in the store.

And while the hats apparently didn't make the cut this season (licensing issues or something), Mr. Cupcake modeled one for me and of course, again, love at first sight! But then again I can't imagine I wouldn't fall in love with anything he was wearing. Don't you just want one for yourself? Or at least your little cupcake?

love at first sight

my little 8 month old granddaughter loves her new little doll and the activity book as well!

My daughter loved it!

These bath bombs were a hit! She also loved the little surprise sponge that popped out of them. I’ll be stopping by to get more!

My niece loved these!

Super cute and stylish for kiddos

Perfect and cozy!

Fits my babies head perfectly and super cute and comfortable!

It is a wonderful, playful dress...My two year old granddaughter twirls and smiles, twirls and smiles.

On my end, it's organic cotton - our skin is the largest absorber of toxins - a big deal not to put toxins next to the skin of a two year old.
