From the website:
What is Trendy Tadpole? Fun tee shirts on super quality fabric that is made in the good ol' U.S. of A. It all started in 2004 when I decided it was time to work for myself. My therapist says I am running a sweatshop but I am the only one in it! Yikes. My inspiration came from the students I was teaching and the kids I was babysitting and I love challenges. Trendy Tadpole and it's owner, me (Julie Pruitt), are a work in progress. I am bringing pop culture, a hint of nostalgia, and a pinch of fun to the table in every tee shirt. I am constantly changing designs, styles, and ideas to meet the needs of, well, um, you!...
The shirts, pants and hats are made from soft, breathable cotton and come in a variety of sizes from 3-6 mo and up. They are made in 4 distinct styles: Snapsuit (Onesie), Long Sleeved Lap Tee, Long Sleeved T-shirt, and Toddler Raglan.
The shirts run from $11 to $37 plus they often runs sales.
Julie repeatedly points out that they run small and shrink so to order with that in mind.
Trendy Tadpole happily ships their products to both the US and International addresses.
They donate to multiple philanthropic causes, in part from the proceeds from any and all purchases made through them.
Here is what I did like:
As mom to both Caucasian and Asian children, I really appreciate the diversity in the designs as well as the simplicity - they can be worn with so many things! Not only do they have some of the most precocious and fun designs but their products come in the softest cotton I have ever felt! I love putting them on P3's sensitive skin because I know they will not chafe or itch. And they wash like a dream! I simply turn them inside out and wash them with a load of cold items and they come out, looking as good as new.
Once again, there really is not much of anything I did not like about them. The only thing I found to be challenging was the sizing. Julie cautions you repeatedly on the site that the sizes run small which is helpful knowledge. It is difficult however, to know what size exactly to order if you know they run small but are unsure of what size they are exactly. Thankfully, as a t-shirt, they are very forgiving and were actually truer to size than I expected. Other than that, everything was perfect!
Here is what I say:
I would not hesitate to buy these shirts and clothes one minute. Julie has been a breeze to work with and I have been so pleased with the products. Above all, the softness of the shirts is completely incomparable and something that should be found in every child's closet. Just ask P3. She says...
"Buy More Trendy Tadpole Shirts!!"
And the best news of all is that Julie has graciously offered to let one of my readers win one of her delightful shirts so they can find out for themselves!!
