While these are cute, I think they used to be called Garanimals.

The Garanimals brand is still around. Walmart sells it. These are cute and would make great play clothes.

While maybe good for going out and getting dirty, they are otherwise VERY BORING outfits!!

Keis on

Wow, very cute, gendered clothing. It’d be great if there was some middle ground instead of boys’ and girls’ clothing.

Garanimals are sold at Walmart. These are the from The Children’s Place. We have some of these

Our dark colors look very faded after only a couple of washings

I think this gives the child a little more freedom that Garanimals because the clothes are simple and can all match. The pricing is great too $3 just as reasonable at Garanimals.

I hope this doesn’t get me jumped or start a war and I hope I can say it as much PC as possible….

I think these would be awesome for a learning disabled child! A child who maybe would have trouble at a bit of an older age, picking out things that match.

That said, they do look very cheaply made and we all know you get what you pay for. I don’t have kids but my favorite go to for gifts is carter’s. We had Garanimas when I was a kid. I remember when Gymboree was kind of a start up whose “gimmmick” was clothes that grew with a child. Long cuffs that could be rolled up at first and more than one row of snaps, things like that. I don’t know much about The Children’s Place.

That is really cheap! I like the idea of everything matching but it still means the kid would be in the same outfit every day just different colour. They could add some different style shorts to the line.

I LOVE that celebrity babies has decided to showcase AFFORDABLE items! Thank you!

why do adults that design clothes think children are morons that need to be dressed so tackily?

I was just at TCP yesterday and I looked through these clothes. I bought the purple heart shirt for my 2yo but all the shorts were just not my style. They were cut quite short, wide, and the waistband was cheap looking.
I love TCP jeans and some of their other items but many of their bold colours do fade pretty quickly.

I’d rather shop at second-hand store and get good quality brands that will last then those! you get what you pay for…

Love TCP!! I buy almost all of DD’s clothes there. They are NOT cheaply made. I had never had an issue with wear, rips, etc.

DD actually has some of the above outfits and they are comfortable and cool. Can’t wait to go back to school shopping and see the fall stuff.

I used to work for TCP and while not perfect the clothes were not cheaply made (nothing is perfect even higher priced clothing). I bought their clothes for my son while working there and still buy them for him today (he is 7 yrs old and I have been dressing him in TCP clothes since he was born). He is a rough and tumble boy and the clothes last an appropriate time for how hard he is on clothing. Their items are cute and priced appropriately.

I shop at TPC all the time. The clothes are very well made and hold up as we pass them down to younger family members. We have never had any fading of darker colors. The solid colors are bright and fun to mix and match. The prices are pretty affordable for new styles and even better when they go on sale. The $3 price mentioned above is a sale price for the matchables. I have found that if I watch the sales I get better deals on these than I do at the local second hand stores for new clothes that hold up better. The accessories for the girls are fun too. They have some decent gender neutral infant clothes too.
