I love discovering and sharing hot new innovative products. I seriously do! It's one of my favorite parts about blogging!! And today, I've got a new item that your kid, if anything like mine, will seriously go nuts over!! It's not a toy or anything life changing, it's an article of clothing, actually. And I know, I know, unless there's some really cool character on it, kids generally don't care much about clothes. BUT this one is different...
PockeTeez is a children's (long or short sleeve) t-shirt with a pocket in the front. Not just any old pocket though, this one functions two ways: The inner layer of the pocket has openings on the side like a hoody pocket, and the outter layer of the pocket has a zippered water-resistant lined compartment in the front! Kinda like a t-shirt, hand muff, and fanny pack all in one!! With gender neutral colors and designs, it's great for boys and girls in sizes 2/3Y - 8/9Y!
What do I think? It's an awesome idea, well-made, soft, durable, and I love the gender neutrality of it! But what I think doesn't matter as much as how much my son loved it. He absolutely loves pockets, hoods, zippers, all that stuff. So when I showed him what the pocket could do, he absolutely flipped out. He seriously wore it the entire weekend (eww, I know) before I convinced him he had to take it off so we could wash it! Boys huh? Ha! He's been having tons of fun seeing how much he can load in there, and what he can sneak off with - his go to's seem to be toy cars, acorns, coins, and lollipos.
With 11 days to go, PockeTeez have already surpassed their $10,000 goal on Kickstarter! But definitely check out their campaign, because your pre-order / contribution can get you a shirt and also send a shirt to a child in a CAMBA homeless shelter in NYC!
PockeTeez is the latest to come from Hatch Things, a small Brooklyn firm owned by Sonjie Feliciano Solomon, artist/designer and mom of 3! Hatch Things' previous and equally awesome products include the SureShop (side bag so umbrella strollers can be loaded up with goods without tipping over) and the ColdSnap (coat-extension cover for winter babywearing). You can check out their SureShop in action in a fun video up on my Instagram, click the image below:
Be sure to follow Hatch Things on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to be kept on the loop on PockeTeez production and more!
