Need a perfect indoor shoe? And by "perfect" I mean one that can be worn outdoors as well as in. Skidders grip the ground and yet have super-flexible soles, making them ideal for toddlers and preschoolers. We have them in various sizes in black, navy, pink, and a few brown. Come and get 'em! Originally $20 at retail / now $7.50
Is this black? Navy? In different lighting you could make an argument for either. It's an excellent condition and, though a size is not stated, we're estimating that this is about 18 to 24 months. Email monkstrunk (at) gmail if you'd like us to ship ($7.95 s/h)
So you buy your kid a large wardrobe at the start of season and, once you wash it all and get it in the drawers, find out that he's a size 8, not 7. Waaaaaaa.
Oh well, we now have practically a rack's worth of size 7 boys' Ralph Lauren in nearly new condition: long- and short-sleeved polo shirts, rugby shirts, a few hoodies, a couple of sweaters, and lots of pants and jeans. A few things were worn a few times but many were only washed. Prices average around $8.
We're putting out several infant snowsuits and buntings, by Petit Bateau, Gap, Ralph Lauren, and others. Come check 'em out!
During the winter, my son wears a 4T pant. But in the summer, the size of his shorts and pants runs anywhere from 12 months up to 4T. Like a lot of kids, he has grown in height over the years but his waist? Not so much. Toddlers have proportionately large bellies and those bellies don't grow at the rate everything else does.
When long pants grow short, we wear them as capri-length pants, often rolling them up at the bottom. My son prefers them to shorts because his knees don't hurt as much when he falls, and they look GREAT. He gets compliments all the time on several pair of his "baby" pants, which he wears with knockoff Crocs. Of course, cut-offs are always an option as well.
The same applies to shorts he has outgrown; shorts are fit so long these days that the smaller sizes in many cases fit and look even better than the ones designed for kids his size.
Can you believe we have these adorable froggy umbrellas for a mere $9?
We've also got some rain boots and jackets in various sizes. For rainboots, we currently have girls' styles in 4/5, 9, 10m 11, 1, and 2. For boys, we have 11, 13, 1, and 2. In rain jackets, we have 18 months, 2T, 4, 5 (girls); and 2, 3, 4, and 6x (boys).
Excellent condition, $40
18 months, unisex, $12
