Happy Green Bee Review!

Happy Green Bee is an organic kid's clothing shop with a great philosophy: "Clothing that is comfortable, colorful, playful, and ecologically responsible."

Roxanne Quimby, owner and creator, says this about her clothing line. . .
"We created Happy Green Bee so that a child can be a child, first and foremost. By using organic cotton, a comfortable and practical fabric, and simple bee-striped patterns, children feel as comfortable as they look while their parents take a small step in making a big difference in the environment their children live in."

Here's my 2 year-old, Kirsten, playing with my harp in the outfit we received from Happy Green Bee. (Yeah, the harp is pretty fascinating to her. . . mostly she tries to climb it! Which is why I usually keep it covered up!)
The outfit is AWESOME!

My favorite things about Happy Green Bee:

*The fabric is soooooo incredibly soft. As soon as I got them out of the packaging I was wishing they sold clothing in adult sizes. I want clothing that comfortable for myself too!!!

*The fabric is also stretchy and allows for lots of flexibility and ease of movement.

*The organic cotton these clothes are created from does not retain any toxic residues, and is a pure, natural, and breathable fiber. It really helps on sensitive skin that is prone to eczema and rashes.

*I love the bright, happy colors!

*They have a really great factory store where they list items they're almost out of and you can buy them for rock-bottom prices! Right now they have dresses for $7, striped leggings for $6, and cute ruffled chemises for $8! I wish more clothing stores would do this!
Good to know: The sizing for the tops runs quite a bit smaller than the sizing for the shorts. I got the tank top in XLarge for Kirsten (even though the website says that size is for 4 year-olds) and the shorts in Large. The tank top fits her well, but the shorts are pretty huge on her, even though I bought the shorts in a smaller size than the shirt. So keep that in mind!

The item I'm coveting the most from their site:
*This reversible hoodie! Not only is it adorable, I love the fact that it's actually reversible. How many times a day do babies and toddlers stain their clothing while you're out for the day? I'd love to just be able to turn the hoodie inside out and have it look fresh and clean! I really want it in Sky, pictured below. It would work well for a girl or a boy!

They have a huge variety of clothing styles, from hats to dresses and kimono tops. I adore the hat!
