Jaime King Launches New Gender-Neutral Kids’ Clothing Line

05/31/2016 at 05:30 PM ET

Jaime King is breaking down barriers.

The Hart of Dixie star is teaming up with children’s clothing retailer Gardner and the Gang, led by Kristin Nystrom, to design the Gardner and the Gang ♥ Jaime King Collection: a socially and environmentally aware, gender-fluid clothing brand that aims to make children feel empowered and accepted.

“We have set limitations upon our children and babies, whether that be consciously or subconsciously. Somewhere along the line of ‘dos and don’ts,’ we relegated children into little boxes that are so restrictive,” King, 37, tells PEOPLE exclusively of her inspiration behind the collaboration.

The actress and model adds: “Somehow, the world decided that boys belong in blue and girls belong in pink and anything other than that is weird or strange and in some ways frowned upon — as if allowing a boy to wear purple or hot pink is steering them in the wrong direction.”

He’s (still) got “The Right Stuff”!

Joey McIntyre might be best known as the youngest member of late-’80s/early-’90s boy band New Kids on the Block — a group that is still selling tickets like hotcakes to this day — but his most important role is definitely as dad to daughter Kira Katherine, 5, and sons Griffin Thomas, 8½, and Rhys Edward, 6.

In a PEOPLE-exclusive sneak peek for the newest season of Rock This Boat: New Kids on the Block, McIntyre talks about how great the feeling is that the group’s fans have grown right along with them not only in age, but in big life milestones — like starting a family.

My wife [Barrett] and I started having kids around the same time the New Kids got back together,” McIntyre, 43, says. “So [over] the last eight years, between the tours and the cruises, [things] have been … a little bit hectic, to say the least!”
