You always hoped your babe would grow up to be her own person, with a unique set of interests and hobbies. You never thought she’d blab about them ’til she turned blue in the face.
Help her make a (quieter) statement with new Seattle-based Hopscotch Tees.
The super-soft shirts feature personalized emblems and graphics (race cars, fishing tackle shops, princess crowns, pirates, and more). Words are customizable, too; include your mini megaphone’s favorite one-liner, nickname, year of birth, neighborhood, or favorite activity.
So she can get it all off her chest.
