If you have visited or followed my blog for any amount of time you know that I love finding unique clothing for my little “Bug” and today is no exception to that rule! I’m always on the lookout for fun and interesting t-shirts to add to his ever growing collection of one of a kind shirts that only he will be seen wearing to pre-school and outing so when I discovered GoodBoyRoy.com I knew that their line of unique, one of a kind t-shirts would be perfect for our little man.
About GoodBoyRoy (taken from website):
Introducing Good Boy Roy designs. Fun t-shirts for fun kids. Created by a kid for kids, young and old. All designes created by a 16 year old teenager to share his love of cartooning with the world. All designs are fun, kid friendly and sure to bring smiles to all who see and wear. See all Good Boy Roy designs, they are cool, unique and fun cartoon type characters with personality and attitude. This new brand is created with fun in mind, not vulgar,sexually explicit, offensive and no profanity. Some designs also address a social awareness or cause, such as Bullying (see Angry Allen, the anti-bully), Faith (see God Rocks), cancer awareness (Stomp out Cancer), and mental illness (NAMI, Mental illness is not a choice). Good Boy Roy, fun you wear.
We hope to expand the line and the name to anything and everything that we can put a design and logo on!!!! We can also do custom designs for athletic teams, reunions, different functions, you name it, Zack can create it. Remember, Good Boy Roy designs are for Little kids and Big kids!!!
About the boy behind Good Boy Roy (we call him Zman): Zack is 15 and has always loved to draw. He raced BMX bikes at one time and played baseball most of his life. Zack has always been funny, silly and loves to do impersonations. He is like most kids but has some challenges that he has struggled with growing up, like OCD and ADHD, Anxiety, then a strep infection which is believed to have caused him to develope Tourettes and Tics. (It's called PANDAS, Pediatric Autoimmune Disorder Assciated With Strep) Over the years he has sustained 3 head traumas which are believed to have only aggravated these difficulties. This can all make things pretty chaotic and unpredictable. Zack's drawing has usually helped him to calm down, was comforting to him and is something he has always been proud of. He loves all kinds of fan, his dad is from Georgia so he is a HUGE DAWG fan!!! He has one sister, Kelsie, and 4 dogs.
How Good Boy Roy began...(in Zack's words): "One day my mom decided to surprise me and have Roy put on a shirt. I loved it, and so did other people. And the rest as they say is history!! The first character that came to life on a shirt was Roy, mom thought we should call him Good Boy Roy. Like me he really is a good boy but sometimes does things he should not do. And that is what I have always said after something happens that I did not mean to happen, I always say "I really am a good boy", so Roy is kind of my alter ego. I am making new characters almost every day and will put the new designs up on my website as I get them created. So, by now, Good Boy Roy has a whole gang of friends I have created, and they too are now on shirts."
We were sent one of GoodBoyRoy’s Zman shirts and I have to say it was only fitting because our little “Bug’s” name is actually Zane so it fit real well! Our shirt arrived very quickly and I could not believe how adorable this shirt actually is. Not only is this shirt super cute but it is also super soft which is awesome since “Bug” likes his shirts extra soft.
We selected a youth size medium for “Bug” which was a tad big but he will be growing into is really quickly and he has already showed lots of interest in wanting to wear this shirt almost daily…he will ask….am I big enough today?? So needless to say “Bug” and I are both really excited for when he will be able to wear this shirt and it won’t be long the way he is growing for sure.
Now even though he doesn’t get to wear it much I just had to test the durability of the shirt when it comes to the wash and dry process, now I’m one of those super busy moms that don’t have lots of time to hand wash or hang things out to dry so it’s super important that “Bug’s” clothing be washer and dryer friendly! Well I’m very happy to report that the Zman t-shirt from GoodBoyRoy preformed very well in the washer and dryer, I also love that the shirt didn’t really shrink at all and with some of the tees on the market today it’s kind of hard to find a tee that don’t shrink when washed and for sure when they are put in the dryer instead of being hung out to dry!
We love our Zman t-shirt from GoodBoyRoy and I can guarantee that “Bug” will be sporting it all around town once he completely grows into it, instead of just wearing it around the house. I have to say that I feel that the tees are high quality and with such cute designs such as the Zman design they rank very high on my must have list.
I would highly recommend GoodBoyRoy to anyone looking to give a super special gift at a birthday party or other gift giving events. I’m sure they have the perfect design for any boy or girl on your shopping list!
