About three weeks ago I was at the Maker Faire and started chatting with another mom -- then I took a good look at her baby and noticed that he was wearing a pair of charming overalls made of beautiful wide-wale corduroy. Now, when I see a baby boy in great clothes I sit up and pay attention. I find it very difficult to find fun, interesting clothing for my boys. I refuse to dress them in clothing emblazoned with monster-trucks, attack dinosaurs, sports paraphernalia or logos. Their little bodies are not billboards for advertising toys, movies or clothing manufacturers. Shirts with collars & buttons making them appear to be headed for an office job or an afternoon of golf... No, thank you. Anything made from army camouflage fabric? No way.
I hurried home and visited their website. Zypalongs were designed by a mom who got tired of dealing with snaps on her baby's clothing. The pants, overalls and dresses made by this company are sewn from a soft, stretchy corduroy-type fabric and the garments zip on and off with ease... Plus, the shoulder straps extend an extra 4 inches as needed to accommodate growth. What's not to love?!
And better yet, here is a coupon code you can use to receive 20% off your purchase on the Zypalong website. Just type bloom_20 in the space for the the coupon code when you check out. (Note: the coupon code is good through the end of the year, so you can buy a pair of Zipalongs for your baby now and you can buy another pair later!)
