As you know by now “Bug” loves bugs but what you may not know is that he also loves trains and well just about any other big vehicle or anything else that makes him look like a teeny tiny ant! So I’m always on the lookout for cool new apparel for him that includes his interest of either bugs or trains and such so when I found Shirts That Go I knew that they were a perfect match! They have Kid T-shirts for just about vehicle that moves!
About Shirts That Go (Taken From Website):
Our Inspiration - It is what we are about
When our children see vehicles such as trucks and trains they are just AMAZED and captivated by them. We share that feeling at Shirts that Go! All vehicles are interesting, but certain ones are really noticed by kids and tap into their imagination and wonder about the world. Let's consider a few examples that have inspired us.
We take our boys to watch the trains go by at a local train line. We park in, of all places, a fire station parking lot! The parking lot happens to be right on the rail line and only 50 feet from a railroad crossing (with the gates and everything). We know the times roughly for when the Amtrak comes by on Sunday mornings, so we sit in our van and wait for the train to come. Soon, a train horn can be heard off in the distance... the boys start to get crazy excited. The excitement builds as we hear a few more train horns as the train approaches other nearby crossings on the way toward us. Then... the crossing gates start to come down with the familiar "ding ding" warning bells. We are all at the windows now and the boys are riveted. Then - here comes the diesel engine at about 60 miles per hour. It's loud, it's HUGE, and the ground is shaking a bit. WOW!! Boys are there with eyes wide open and just blown away by the experience of this incredible machine. Soon, it is gone, and we are kind of spinning as the energy level comes down a bit. We all have a bit of adrenaline surging from that experience for the next 20 minutes or so, and we are so excited about our day.
Sometimes we find ourselves at an intersection in our van and there is nothing too exciting going on. Just sitting there waiting for the light to change and the kids are in the back chatting. Suddenly, a siren is blaring and a massive bright red fire engine is trying to get through the intersection. The boys forget whatever it was they were fighting about and are wide eyed with WOW! They have seen this before, but it never gets old. What an amazing machine!
There are many examples of this that we all see with our children. What we are seeing with these experiences is their sense of wonder about the world being brought right to the surface by these amazing vehicles. So, what is Shirts that Go! all about? Cool designs on t-shirts... or is there something more? We are trying to connect with that sense of wonder about the world with our line of kids t-shirts. We understand that we cannot bottle that energy and put it down on a shirt somehow. What we can do though is provide awesome shirts with realistic vehicles shown in motion to let the kids share their love for these vehicles. To us this is all about adventure, travel, transportation, early concepts about careers, imagination, dreams, possibilities, awe, and of course FUN!
“Bug” was sent one of the Steam Train T-shirts in a size 2T and he loves it! He was so very excited when he seen the box arrive in the mail! I will admit the box was very well marked with a cute picture on the front of it so there was no mistaking where it had come form or who it was for!
The design on the shirt was perfect for “Bug” since he loves trains and it is a very realistic train indeed! The shirt itself is very soft and seems to be really comfortable on “Bug” since he is always asking to wear his train shirt!
This shirt has held up fantastically to his wear and tear of a toddler and has held up great to the wash and dry process!
They don’t just have Train T-shirts they also carry Motorcycle t-shirts , Fire truck t-shirts, Airplane t-shirts and many more to choose from!
“Bug” and I love Shirts That Go!! These unique shirts would be perfect for the little vehicle lover in your life! I do think it would be wonderful if they offered a shirt for Ford Mustang little enthusiast though but I’m sure between the great selection they offer you will find something perfect for the little ones on your shopping list!
You can purchase your own shirt from Shirts That Go by visiting their Website!
