Remember being a kid, and the joy of FINALLY being able to pick out your own clothes? You could match your acid washed jeans with your oversized gray fringed sweatshirt, or peg your pants to show off your double layered scrunched socks....
Oh wait - did I just date myself?
Whatever - we all remember the joy of being "in style" as a kid. Unfortunately, for kiddos with varying disabilities, they have found themselves watching from the veritable back row of life's catwalk, never being able to participate. Because:
shirts with buttons
narrow pant legs
narrow hip widths
And the list goes on and on. Now, if you're a crafty parent, maybe this wasn't an issue for you. Maybe you just broke out the trusty sewing machine to revamp the clothes so they worked and were on-trend. However, if you're anything like me - you safety pinned the heck out of everything that came into your home and prayed your kid didn't turn into a human voodoo doll at the expense of fashion.
Well, it seems as though Target has heard the cries of my kid, er, I mean parents of kids with special needs all across the land and have expanded their adorable Cat & Jack brand to include SENSORY FRIENDLY CLOTHING!
It's almost like Christmas! They feature tagless shirts, and pants/shorts that are wider in the hip and butt to accommodate kiddos in diapers (and soon to come: side zip dresses)! And unlike the unsightly shoes that are handed to us when our kiddos get their first pair of AFO's (ankle-foot orthotics), they did NOT skimp on the cuteness factor. Check out these adorable items (click eachto purchase)!
They also carry flat seam leggings and solid colored tops for boys and girls. With prices ranging from $5-$7, not only can our kiddos get on the fashion train, they can eat dinner too - because it's so dang affordable! We always knew we loved Target, but this - well this just seared that little red bullseye onto our hearts forever.
Thank you Target for leading the way in retail inclusion!
