There is no doubt that the Fourth of July is one huge holiday celebrated by Americans. Yes, it’s a big deal for most Americans and for our family, it’s an even bigger deal because we also celebrate (our son) Gabriel’s birthday the day before this holiday. Yes, he is born just one day shy of Independence Day. So every year, we celebrate two ‘big deal’ events in our family.
You know, I consider our family very fortunate that we live very close to the capital of the United States – Washington, D.C. How cool is it that we can just drive less than an hour to all the history the capital is known for?
The Lincoln Memorial. The Capitol. The Washington Monument. The White House.
And every Fourth Of July, we try and celebrate and watch the famous fireworks in Washington, DC. We love where we live and we are proud to be Americans. And we’re not just saying that because the Fourth of July is coming up. 😉
Which is why, when I learned about the story of this amazing, history-inspired clothing company, Wee The People Tees, I said, “Yes, I would love to feature your cool shirts on Hip Mama’s Place!”.
I love when a product has a beautiful story to tell and why they do what they do and make what they make. This is the story of Wee The People Tees:
We created each one of our tees to be a beautiful reminder of the American story told in these memorials. We don’t want America’s history to end at the Capitol steps. We want it to flow through our neighborhoods, playgrounds, homes, and schools. Because we believe our story needs to be handed down to the next generation.
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln… they were all kids once, too. They went on to do great things, and gave every American a unique blessing. When you tell your kids their story, you give them a story to tell, a great history to be a part of. Who knows what great things they will do?
Easy. Fresh. Unique. Those are three words I use to describe these tees for my boys from Wee The People Tees. My ten year old even asked me what the 1600 meant on his new WTPT shirt. Before I answered his question, I made him guess the name of the building first by giving him a hint that it’s where the President of the United States and his family live. He answered it right away, but he doesn’t know The White House is on 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC.
Now, a shirt that can be used as an educational piece to teach kids about national and historic places in the US. How clever is that?
ABE = for Abraham Lincoln and the Lincoln Memorial
GEORGE = for George Washington and the Washington Monument
BLOSSOM = for the National Cherry Blossom Festival
CAPITOL = for the United States Capitol
… and more!
I love the concept this company represents and the products are totally of high quality. I love that these history-inspired shirts are super soft (made with 100% ringspun cotton), the designs are unique and modern and such cool, so ‘now’ colors! My kids look trendy wearing these shirts and what mom doesn’t like that?! 🙂
