Cool, Crazy Psychobaby Weekend Events

The arrival of summer brings a ton of awesome events for Psychobabies and their cool, crazy parents to enjoy! This weekend is jam-packed with fun for Chicagoans of all ages:

Saturday & Sunday, June 2-3, stop by the Psychobaby tent at Do Division! Look for our crew at the Family Fun Fest (located on Hoyne Avenue just north of the festivities on Division) where we will be turning your clean-cut kids into lil' rebels with colored punk rock hairdos!
If your tyke is sporting a freshly coiffed 'do, the odds are in your favor your kiddo will save their meltdown for after White Mystery's rockin' set. Just sayin'.

Sunday, June 3 from 11am-2pm, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum will host the Best of Bump Club and Beyond! Attendees will receive a free personalized bib from Psychobaby, while supplies last! Test strollers, grab the latest baby swag, and attend childcare seminars on topics from nap schedules to nutrition - all under one roof.
Tickets include lunch, admittance to all events, and an awesome gift bag!

Stay tuned to the Psychobaby blog for more upcoming summer family events!

Gifts for Dad to show him he's rad!

If you know a dad who is one cool dude be sure to shop our collection of new daddy & baby gifts for your husband, brother, or best bud! A hip onesie is a great way for dad to proudly display his chip off the ol' block (and will probably earn him twice as many compliments as that new set of golf clubs). Father’s Day is June 17 - three weeks away; prove you were listening during that "do as I say, not as I do" lecture, and make your pops proud. In other words, don't wait until the last minute to shop for Dad!

Get your cute kids' clothing (and sugar!) fix shopping our Cupcakes 4 Cuties, and browse our Grand Slam Styles for the latest in baseball clothes for kids and babies.
While you are at it, try this riddle on for size:
Why do cupcake eaters love baseball rain delays?
 Because they always involve Sprinkles! 
Okay okay - we’ll stop! Good thing we sell cool crazy kids’ stuff, and don’t tell jokes for a living, eh?

We Come In Peace!

To the moon, Psychobabies! One-eyed onesies, burp cloths perfect for catching unidentified flying objects, other-worldly puppets, and personalized kids’ clothing are all waiting to be beamed up to your space ship. This just in - our radar is picking up a message from afar:
  alien gifts for kids and babies are out of this world!

It's Wear Purple for Peace Day


Purple reminds us of grape jam and lilac bouquets, but today purple represents peace! While the origin of ‘Wear Purple for Peace Day’ is debatable (some say it promotes peaceful interaction between aliens and earthlings!) we are all for a day celebrating peace, love and understanding of any kind. Stock up on colorful purple swag with clothes from Appaman,  Psychobaby's Custom Shop personalized accessories, tees from Lemon, Manhattan Toys and more! John Lennon encouraged the world to “Give Peace a Chance,” and Jimi Hendrix sang of “Purple Haze” so today pretty much rocks, doesn’t it?

This week's One-Piece Wednesday twitter give away is our Eat 'Em Up Sushi One-Piece.  Make mouths water with this delicious over sized Sushi print, sure to catch attention!

Vintage tees and leggings you'll do cartwheels for...

Junk Food tees for kids and Monkeybar Buddies leggings were both made with one idea in mind: summer! Super soft vintage inspired tees from Junk Food are the type of shirt your Psychobaby will want to wear everyday, and what little lady could resist Monkeybar Buddies' cute leggings that let you swing from the rafters without showing a hint of your skivvies? 
Let’s hear it for hanging from trees, doing cartwheels in the park, and enjoying the heck outta those three months when school’s out for summer!

Speaking of school being out for summer, here's one Psychobabies and parents can both dig: 
Alice Cooper AND Muppets. Whoa.

SERIOUSLY Delicious New Designs...

WARNING: These delicious designs will go straight (on)to your toddler's hips...and shoulders and maybe even feet.

Summer is ALMOST here! In anticipation of the warm weather and all of the awesome picnic and BBQ food that comes with it, the Psychobaby Custom Shop is bringing a whole new meaning to babies being "so cute you want to eat them up!"

Wrap up your littlest psycho baby in an Eat 'Em Up Cheeseburger One-piece with a side of the Small Fry Hat and they won't be the only one who needs a burp cloth to wipe up the drool.  If they would rather play with their food than wear it, you can always check out the Melissa & Doug Wooden Doughnut Set or the Alex Stretchy Sandwich.  Either way, this summer is looking yummy!

Gifts for Mom: Please Forward to Daddy...

Gifts for mom always win major brownie points, so listen up baby daddies: you have less than two weeks to shop for Mother's Day! Your little Psychobaby is the whole reason your better half gets to celebrate, so you might as well get a gift that mom and baby can both enjoy. Onesies, diaper bags, and bibs are always a hit, especially when you accompany the swag with "I'll take care of the kids, you go relax." Come to think of it, you can accompany your gift with some flowers while you are at it (and a massage, and a drink, and a vacation, and...we could go on). 

And because we are well aware dads and wrapping paper usually get along as well as Slash and Axl Rose, we are more than happy to lend our talents to make your gift look extra special. Our only request: (just this once) don't wait 'til the last minute to find a great gift for your favorite mama!
