Curious Crickets: For our wonder full boys

My Benny Boy

This is my guy, here on the left. He makes my heart pitter patter. It was love at first sight. I think he is handsome and kind and smart and very funny. I can’t stop smooching on him. He is my three year old son, Benny.

My dino-jammied, Spiderman-obsessed, motorcycle-loving, unicorn-riding, kitten-loving, art-inclined, caped super guy. Crooked mask and all.

I wanted Pigtail Pals to carry a brother line to our girls tees; a line to honor Benny’s childhood. A line to honor all boys: sweet, charming, imaginative, curious, adventurous, snuggly, and playful. We talk about girls issues all of the time, but I recognize my son will face gender stereotypes and sexualization and all the things we talk about with girls, just in a different manner.
I wanted a line of tees for boys that reflected the intellectual, creative, and caring side to their nature.
These tees will be available in the online shop tomorrow, Friday June 10th. They will come in sizes infants through Boys 6x. And colors? Colors! Red, Butter Yellow, Lime, Kelly Green, Sky Blue, Sea Blue, Navy, Lilac, Pink, White, and Black. (You will be able to put any design on any color tee.)
I would like to introduce to you Curious Crickets: for wonder full boys.


  1. They’re so great! (Can you make some in bigger sizes too?!)

    • Kirsty –
      I can make them in larger sizes. When I put them on the online store, I’ll have an option for “custom size” and you can choose that, and at check out in the comments section just tell me what size and color you need and I’ll do the rest!

  2. These are ADORABLE!!!!

    But now I want a doctor one for girls. Because I’m GREEDY I tell you!!!

    But seriously, they are super cute!

    • Haha, well……if you can wait just a bit longer, I have a co-ed line planned that will be developed soon and I think you’ll find something there you love!

  3. Great tees, and excellent artwork! I’d like some of the Whimsy Bee tees in an adult size as well… is it possible to custom size those as well? 🙂

    • Thanks Mandy!

      It is possible to customize the Whimsy Bees, too. When you order, click the “Girls XL” option, but at checkout in the comments, let me know what Ladies size you’d like (S, M, L, XL, 2XL). Just remember to order one size up!

  4. Melissa these are so cute. The artwork is so vibrant it would even be great to hang in a child’s room or in a preschool.

  5. Joyce Atkins says:

    I love them! They are cute, bright, full of energy and possibility–just like Ben! I am proud of you and your vision.

    Benny’s Grandmother 🙂

  6. Oooh, I definitely hope to see the room decor soon. My husband and I recently began trying for children and I’m a huge proponent of breaking down gender barriers. I looove the art here and a set of them would look amazing on a nursery wall!

  7. Bravo!!! LOVE the new designs!! 🙂
