Here in New England, the lowering of the temperature outside signals the time to break the fall/winter clothes out of storage. Of no surprise to me, my soon to be 5 year old daughter, Sophie, had a huge growth spurt over the summer and outgrew most of her clothing from last year. A couple of shirts and jeans made the cut, but no pajamas. Ah, a challenge! Time for me to go on the hunt for American made children's pajamas!
While on my search for made in the USA children's pajamas, I discovered Brian the Pekingese
Brian the Pekingese brand children's pajamas are made in the USA from prewashed cotton. These PJs are for boys and girls, sizes 18M- 10 years, and Brian the Pekingese himself is featured in every design. I was immediately intrigued and contacted the company. They graciously agreed to send me a pair for Sophie and me to review.
Sophie and I absolutely LOVE the Brian the Pekingese Girls Purple Daisy Print Pajamas and Girls Pink Daisy Print Pajamas we received! Here is why:
- Brian the Pekingese pajamas contain no flame retardants. I will not purchase PJs for my kiddos that contain flame retardants. I don't trust chemicals in their clothes, even if they are “safe”.
- Because I will only purchase children's pajamas that contain no flame retardants, the other option is the tight fitting styles. Sophie is not a fan of tight clothes and I usually have to buy a size or two up for them to fit her comfortably. The Brian the Pekingese pajamas we received are her actual size (5T) and they are not too tight at all!
- Confession: when I saw that Brian the Pekingese sizes only went up to 5T, I doubted Sophie would even fit them as we haven't purchased clothing in toddler sizes in since the beginning of the summer. She has been wearing size 5/6 from the girls section of the store, and the Brian the Pekingese size 5T are a perfect fit for her.
- I love that Brian the Pekingese children's pajamas are made from 100% prewashed cotton. Sophie gets hot easily. Polyester blends and flannel pajamas make her uncomfortably sweaty, enough so to wake her (and me!) up in the middle of the night.
- Brian the Pekingese children's pajamas do not shrink! Another reason why I usually buy my kiddos tight style pajamas a size or two too big is the shrinkage. Many times I have purchased a pair of their true size and had to hand them down to a cousin because they shrunk too much.
- Sophie loves her new pajamas because, in her words, “they are so comfy cozy…and they have cute puppy dogs on them!”. Thank goodness for having 2 pairs because she has HAD to wear them every. single. night.
