A Circus Inspired Line for Kids

A Circus Inspired Line for Kids

Target has always impressed me with their 5T and under kids clothing section, but this current collection from Genuine Kids by Osh-Kosh actually excited me!  The circus collection, available in both the girls and boys departments, feature images reminiscent of American traveling circuses of the early 1900's.  This is totally my thing! (and now I am making it my kid's as well).  I used to study costuming, and would go to old photos and movies with images of side shows, vaudeville, and performers of this era for inspiration.  

In the Genuine Kids items I saw iconic circus figures from tigers, elephants, & horses, to strong men, canons, & big top tents done in primary colors with stripes, stars, & polka dots.... this collection is so fun for the kiddos!  But seriously, why can't Target do a Mommy & Me line?  

My top pick for Max was the Evil Kenevil bomber. jacket, he calls it "the one that goes boom," then the strong man tank (pictured above), and also a red and white striped tee with a strong man lifting a barbell.  Max wore the first two on our next trip to Disneyland and received compliments throughout the day.  Look how perfectly he fits in on the boardwalk!
