5 Reasons to Send Them Back to School With Character

As the hottest months of the year draw to a close, we’ll be spending less time organizing play dates and taking the kids to the pool and spending far more time on their schoolwork. Sure, we’ll be happy they’re getting an education, but our little scholars will be a little less enthused. Curb their antipathy with a colorful and fun back-to-school wardrobe with lots of character!

Here are 5 great reasons to liven up their new wardrobe as they head back into the classroom:

1. The summer is over but that doesn’t have to be the end of fun.  Sure there will be less time to play and lounge, but every minute of the day can still shine bright with fun superhero kicks or expression tees!

2. Playtime will be far more imaginative.  Their imagination will be their getaway. They’ll save the playground from the mad scientist or guard their jungle-gym kingdom from outside forces! They’ll use their magic to save the prince from the enemy or maybe just be the big goofball you know them to be!

3. Let their personalities shine! Is your mini-me a natural born beach bum, a fun-loving joker, or do they toe with the Dark Side™ of their wardrobe? Wherever they fall on the personality panorama, there are lively characters to fit.  Put Darth Vader® on their feet or a cuddly party octopus on their shirt to add a little charisma to their day!

4. The early morning struggle. They aren’t the only ones who don’t like the early morning! Everything feels like a struggle: getting yourself dressed, getting them dressed, breakfast, grabbing your coffee and the commute. It can be a lot more than a parent can handle.  At least there will be one thing that goes smoothly, choosing their outfit! They’ll love the selection, you’ll love the ease!

5. It takes care of part of your back-to-school shopping right now! Sure you need to purchase the ever-growing list of required school supplies, but you can also have some fun with awesome styles from MARVEL®, Star Wars®, Disney®, Neff®, Stride Rite®, The Original Retro Brand®, Billabong®, Roxy®, and adidas® Originals. Imagine the convenience of having their cool new wardrobe sent right to your door!
