Dadoo Kids sent me an organic cotton onesie to use for Lovebug. Designed and made in California, Dadoo clothing is oh-so-soft organic cotton and bamboo blends, printed with water based inks, functional, and made with room to play in. The first thing that struck me about the Blowfish Onesie is how much more fun the design is in real life. For some reason, looking at the picture just makes me think about a blowfish. One my daughter, however, I think about how cute of a print it is as it wraps around her belly.
I have no complaints at all about this onesie. It is soft, well made, and actually fits over her cloth diapers! In comparing this t-shirt to an equivalent sized Gerber or Carter t-shirt, Dadoo wins by a large degree thanks to the quality and fit. We've washed and re-washed this shirt and so far it hasn't shrunk, faded, pilled, stretched, faded, or anything else! It's one of my favorites to grab out of the drawer, and it'll also be cute in the summer with just a pair of shorts or a skirt.
Dadoo Kids makes some other real cute clothing, including a new twirly dress with leggings that I think are adorable:
The only problem that I forsee for people is the price of the clothing. I don't think that anything's over priced for the craftsmanship and product that you're getting--and you're buying something made in the US!--but I do know that many of our budgets won't allow for us to buy a $36.00 onsie. :-( Bah. What I do have to say, though, is that if you're like me and wish you could clothe your child in organic, fitting, and lasting clothes all of the time, Dadoo Kids is a great place to start and you'll be happy with what you buy! The people you will be in contact with are personable, friendly, and timely, plus you have me standing behind their product. :-)
