Made in California: Tykecoon Review and Discount

I love cute kids clothes.  I also love a good cause.  When I can find a product with both aspects, that’s a winning combination! We received the Brown Robot T-shirt in size 12-18 months and the Natural Giraffe T-shirt in a size 4 to review.  Both my kids are tall for their age, so I went up a size on each, and the fit was perfect (my son is 32” tall, 18 pounds; my daughter is 38 pounds and 43” tall).

I love the deep, dark brown on Brendan.  This techy blue robot design is ultra-cool for my almost 1-year-old boy.  The cross-over style of the neck makes it easy to put over my little guys head, too.

Kieran loves the baby giraffe on her shirt, and the little heart on the back that says “I Give a Hoot”.  The natural color allows it to go with pretty much anything.  Her shirt has a traditional t-shirt neckline, but is still stretchy enough to easily pull over her head.  Both shirts are 100% cotton and super-comfy. During multiple washes and drying (on low), they don’t seem to shrink much, which is great for my growing kids.  The brown shirt also has retained it’s original deep color, despite at least 4 washes so far.  Importantly, with multiple washes the graphics are still as good as new!

When purchasing the Robot and Giraffe designs, 10% goes to the charity One Laptop Per Child.  I like how Tykecoon has based their donations on the design of the shirt you choose—a creative business model for a good cause!  The T-shirts retail for $18.00 each.

Tykecoon by Bumpercards is a Los Angeles, CA based clothing company that cares, with 10% of purchases going to the above mentioned childrens’ charities.  They also have a sister site, Bumpercards, which specializes in adorable personalized stationary and custom invitations.  They are currently offering free shipping sitewide on all purchases over $75!

That’s IT Mommy friend, Heather
