All of you that have been following my blog for any length of time knows that I am always on the lookout for fun and unique clothing for both myself and my little man. Well recently I happened to come across a wonderful company that offers a variety of fun and adorable tees for boys ranging in sizes 6M-10/12, so they pretty much have boys of all ages up to size 10/12 covered…..literally! After spending quite some time looking over their amazing selection of shirts at Hank Player in “Bug’s” size, I knew that I just had to feature them right here on The Cartoon Lovin’ Mama, so naturally when Sandy agreed I was thrilled and couldn’t wait to see what shirt “Bug” would get to review!
About Hank Player (taken from website):
A boy … not just snips and snails and puppy-dog tails. Hank Player understands the boy in all of us.
Favorite shirts don't come along very often, but if your little boy's drawer is filled with Hank Player, they'll come along every day!
Hank Player strives to create a quality, long lasting garment that brings together a combination of unique graphics and vintage color processing. All about clean designs on easy-wearing clothes, Hank Player is garment-dyed and washed to give it a familiar lived-in feel.
The kind of clothes repeatedly picked out of the drawer or closet when given the choice, Hank Player has the ability to make a positive statement about the boys wearing them and once they put them on, they'll never take them off!
Hank Player lets a boy define himself, and you'll recognize him in our designs. The one who throws his head back in a belly laugh of delight, cries when he loses, cheers when he wins, stares at the worm in the grass until he's figured it out, and the boy who wears a cape and pretends he can fly. Here's to boys … our boys, your boys, Hank Player boys!
I knew we were getting a shirt in size 3T for “Bug” to wear and review but I had no idea which one, and to be honest I wasn’t really that picky because I absolutely love all of the designs they have available. Since I was young I have always been fascinated with sports, participating in basketball, softball and cheerleading and my husband was a star football and baseball player himself so when we seen that we were sent the Breakfast of Champions Tee we knew it was perfect for our little man, who is already starting to show an interest in sports of all kinds!
“Bug” is a little on the small side for his age but I figured a 2T would be too small in a few months but I was afraid a 3T would be to big, but I opted for the he’ll grow into it and got the 3T. I was very surprised when “Bug” put it on that it fit him so well. I love that it’s big enough that he will be able to wear it pretty much all year and he seems to love that it’s very breathable and comfortable. The shirt itself is very soft and made of high quality materials. The color is great and the vintage looking design goes extremely well with the color.
As far as how this tee held up in the wash…well it has become one of “Bug’s” go to shirt and he wears it at least once a week, so it gets in the wash regularly. I’m extremely happy to report that it has held up wonderfully! Even thought the toughest of stain removal processes the shirt looks just as it did when we took it out of the package! Best of all the shirt did not shrink an inch when dried with my regular like clothing, which is wonderful because I don’t like to have to dry things separately or hang them out to dry! I can’t wait to order my little man some more of these wonderful and humorous tees, I have my eye on a couple including this one:
Our overall experience with Hank Player has been fabulous! I would highly recommend them to anyone with a little man or one on the way! With all their wonderful designs it will be easy to find a shirt that your little one will love, as much as “Bug” loves his!
