Made in USA Review & Giveaway: Skippyjon Jones Pajamas for Kids

We love Skippyjon Jones! We love kids in cute PJ’s! Imagine how excited we were when we heard that the new line of Skippyjon Jones pajamas are made in the USA. We jumped at the chance to review them and we are thrilled to be giving away a set to one of our readers. [Disclosure: USA Love List received this product unconditionally for review purposes. Our opinions are always our own, and we aim to write fair and balanced reviews to promote only the very best of American-made products.]

First things first, introductions all around… if you have little kids, you surely know the rambunctious kitty boy with the big imagination, Skippyjon Jones. If you don’t, get yourself to the library sometime between now and your next bedtime story. In 2005, Pennsylvania author and illustrator Judy Schachner introduced the world to Skippyjon, the wry Mama Junebug Jones and Skippy’s Zorro-like alter ego who fancies himself a chihuahua. The first title, Skippyjon Jones, and the subsequent sequels are a delight to read aloud and are guaranteed to deliver a wave of giggles.

Philadelphia design studio Cozy Toes has partnered with Schachner to create an adorable line of clothing and soft goods for Skippy fans. The pajamas are made in the USA so I rustled up some kids and put them to the test. As seen in the photos, these PJ’s are super cute with pink and white polka dots or black and gray stripes, featuring El Skippito on the front. They are cotton, long-john style and, in accordance with federal laws, since they are not made of flame retardant fabric, they are designed to fit very snugly. They also shrink up on first washing – the girls’ more than the boys because the fabric is slightly different. I would advise ordering up a size or two. When they arrive, they might seem extra long, but when worn, the length allows comfy movement. After many, many washings, the applied illustration looked pristine and the details of Skippyjon’s sweet face were unchanged. They were a huge hit with our test subjects.

Visit the Skippyjon Jones Stuff website to see the complete line of Skippy gear, including the American-made pajamas, then enter to win a pair for your little dude or dudette. We are giving a set of Skippyjon Jones pajamas, your choice of style and size, for FREE with opportunities for multiple daily entries. With this giveaway we are introducing “Pin It to Win It” options for Pinterest fans. Good luck!
