Before becoming a mother, I use to notice all the cute clothing and products my friends little ones would have, all marked with a favourite character they so dearly love and thought to myself: My child will not be decked out in purely Superman or Cinderella gear.
It has to be their parents that nudged these characters onto them.
Boy was I hit with a slap of Sanrio when my firstborn little girl came along. Can we say Hello Kitty everywhere? She loved and still loves her so much that I just had to give in and allow her to be smothered in pretty much all things Hello Kitty. Of course sprinkled with other favourites here and there.
Now that my son is a toddler and now really grasping his true interests and identifying what he loves, we noticed he had a fondness for all things Monkeys and Batman.
It’s funny too because my husband and I had absolutely nothing to do with the Hello Kitty, Monkey and Batman love-fest in our home. Our kids just naturally gravitated towards these things and we respect their enthusiasm and intrigue.
So what if 85% of the girls in my daughters class are rocking Hello Kitty high-tops and backpacks like my daughter, she’s still perfectly exceptional and one-of-a-kind and I adore how much she loves her (or is she and he? *shrugs* Doesn’t matter.)
And oh well that half my neighbourhood of toddler boys were batman for Halloween last year just like my son.
My son was perfect in his cute little costume and as adorably unrivaled as all the other sweet little ones that share his same interest.
This is why I value and endorse brands out there that understand what little ones love so much and make an effort to incorporate that into their product line.
One brand we love dearly in this home, Playtex®, has teamed up with some new friends and now offering fun new cup designs!
The Playtex® PlayTime™ cups are now available in four unique designs featuring Batman, Robin, My Little Pony, Thomas the Tank Engine (and Superman exclusively at Wal-Mart), making playtime even more fun!
The Playtex® PlayTime™ cups still have enhanced Twist ‘n Click™ technology and are guaranteed 100% leak and break proof and come in Spout Cup, Straw Cup or Spoutless Cup and recommended for ages 12M+.
I have been a big fan of Playtex®’s line-up of cups since both my kids were weaning off the bottle.
I also loved their bottles too!
Remember when I shared how Playtex®’s Playtime Cup saved my new designer purse?
These cups are truly fantastic. They don’t leak and they keep my kids drinks nice and cool so they don’t spoil (and that includes milk!).
Now my son can enjoy his liquids and rock one of his favourite superheroes ever – Batman!
He takes it everywhere, it’s just the cutest thing.
