Have you heard? Gymboree has just released a new line of playwear and sleepwear for both boys and girls – all featuring artwork by Eric Carle! The World of Eric Carl is so colorful, imaginative and fun – I was so excited to bring the line of clothing into Lennox’s wardrobe.
We all know The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. I remember it fondly as one of the many books that I read as a child. Lennox loves this story and now that we have these fun, colorful and super soft pajamas to wear each night, she really loves reading the story again and again. Sometimes we even read it backwards – which makes for a very silly story! She can’t read on her own yet, but you would never know that when she is looking at her Very Hungry Caterpillar book – she knows all the words! One of Lennox’s very first and favorite books, was Brown Bear, Brown Bear – it’s such a classic book – and the colors were great. I also love books like this for a young child.
Anyway, more about the clothing! Whether you like play clothes or pajamas – there is something in this line for you. Classic colors and designs to the more girly pinks or darker boy colors. The quality is fantastic. Sometimes I find that kid’s pajamas are very thin and not that soft – or they pill really quickly – the quality is just not there. This is NOT the case with these Gymboree Eric Carle pajamas! They are super soft (I wish my pajamas were that soft!) and the fit is 100% true to size! Lennox’s favorite set so far is the LOVE pajamas. She was just a little excited to show the off to her stuffed animals!We also received another set – a more classic look for Eric Carle. The pants are super adorable on these too! As soon as Lennox got out of the bath, she was ready to get into her new pajamas and get to reading! I look forward to doing some fun crafts too with her this weekend! Gymboree has put together some great The Very Hungry Caterpillar printable crafts and activities to do with your children. Just download them, print them out and you are ready to go! Check out Lennox while she “reads” The Very Hungry Caterpillar book, backwards! She even corrects something in the story – can you figure out what it is?
You can also find some great crafts on Pinterest that are The Very Hungry Caterpillar themed as well!
