While there is absolutely nothing wrong with girls that love pink & princesses, I personally really kind of hate them. I was extremely happy when my oldest daughter decided that blue was her favorite color and so far has stuck with it ever since. She doesn’t hate princesses but she also loves superheroes, trucks, and tools as well as baby dolls and her play kitchen. I am proud to say she is pretty well rounded and doesn’t yet know that any of those things are labeled by society as for boys or girls.
She is only four but is very sure that she always wants the blue one, of any and everything. We have mostly hand me down clothes from friends so she is often wearing pink and pastels so I try really hard when I do purchase anything new for her that I get it in blue. I realized this made things difficult sometimes. She wanted the blue shoes, but they were very obviously the boy shoes, and the pink and purple ones were for the girls. I hated that the style was different. I know there is nothing wrong with her just having the boy sandals, she has many boy things, the ones with the shark instead of the cute owl of course, but with clothes, I really wished there were more options for girls. I started looking out for more clothes in blue and primary colors. She loves dinosaurs and sharks and building things, she doesn’t always need sparkles and glitter either. I don’t really care if someone mistakes one of my daughters for a boy occasionally but I feel like she should be able to wear things that are girly some days, gender-neutral others, with superheroes or trucks or astronauts or ballerinas. She shouldn’t be stuck with pink princesses and unicorns. I especially cannot stand when the boy clothes say adventurer or future astronaut and the girl clothes say cute and princess. Girls can be adventurous and have careers in science too!!!
I will never forget when I was doing martial arts, I needed boxing gloves, I wanted ones that fit for women but all I was finding was bright pink ones. While many girls thought that was awesome, I just wanted gloves like everyone else that fit my tiny hands.
I thought it would be fun to create a place for girls to be girls that offers a well-rounded assortment of clothing to include things outside of the pink princess look. From tomboy looks to girly-girl, kids should be able to wear all colors and prints and feel comfortable with their own style. I hope you enjoy looking at what I have found!
