Learning to Play the Field

Sports Gifts for Babies and Kids
Sports gifts for kids and babies can make life a little bit easier if you're a die-hard fan/parent. If you start your Psychobaby young enough, you can easily instill the appropriate amount of love and fervor for your fave team... remember, you only have a limited amount of time before they start making their own decisions! Dress them in team colors, decorate their room with pennants and posters, feed them sporty snacks off of sporty placemats, you get the drift! Just make it an undeniable fact of life that the Red Sox [or whoever your team is] are awesome, just like the sky is blue, and money most definitely does not grow on trees. Check out a few of our fave player-parents passing along their love of their game to their kids:
 Blackhawk Duncan Keith with brand new son Colton!

Bears baby Camden Cutler, son of quarterback Jay Cutler. We know we've used this picture before, but we can't help it... he's wearing one of our Football Belly one-pieces! Love!

A-Rod with an adorable Yankee fan... his daughter!
David Beckham with his sons on the field. So cute!
Your amateur athlete can spend all night dreaming about winning the World Series/Superbowl/World Cup/playoffs with our new Dream On MVP Pillowcase!

No matter what sport you (and your kids!) are into, or who you're rooting for - we've got you covered! Check out our collection of playoff worthy sports gifts now!

Rock the Plank!

Pirate Presents for Babies and Kids
Pirate gifts for babies and kids arrrrrrr an excellent way to make any little landlubber into a timber-shivering sailor. There are some big advantages to being a pirate: the freedom of the open sea, treasure, getting to hang out on tropical islands, treasure, doing whatever you want whenever you want to, did we mention the treasure? So if it's yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for yo, read on for Psychobaby's Top Tips for Pirate Life!

1. Drink like a pirate! Well, not exactly. Stay away from the rum, and drink your water/juice in a pirate style with our Rad Skull Water Bottle.

2. Eat like a pirate! This swashbuckling snack made of fruit will help ward off scurvy, and you can use one of our Rad Skull Placemats to keep any mess off the table in your galley! (Mothers of pirates appreciate anything that helps them avoid swabbing the deck.)

3. Talk like a pirate! Boost your pirate vocabulary, it's as easy as replacing your "hellos" with "ahoys." Scatter a few choice pirate words into conversation and ye will be instantly soundin' less like a landlubber, and more like a salty sea dog, savvy?

4. Live like a pirate! Check out this extremely lucky little captain's amazing pirate room design. There are lots of cool ideas on Pinterest for pirate-y ways to decorate your Captain's Quarters too, if you haven't collected quite enough gold doubloons to finance an adventure/remodel of this magnitude.

5. Sleep like a sailor with our Dream On Personalized Pirate Pillowcase. One side has a great pirate themed graphic, add your name to the flip side and protect your pillow from marauding buccaneers!
6. Dress like a pirate. Whether you're in full on captain costume or just chillin' like a... scallywag... our My First Tattoo Skull Tee will have you looking like the Jolliest of Rogers! This skull print tee comes in several different colors, like pink and fuchsia - perfect for those tough but girlie pirate princesses.
7. Play like a pirate! Chances are you're probably somewhat land-locked, but don't let that stop you. Check out this awesome recycled cardboard ship... make the living room your ocean, and sail away!
8. Rock like a pirate with the most classic of shanties... 'A Pirate's Life for Me!'

9. Pirate-ify your friends! Your parents might not let you keep a parrot or a monkey in your room, so be resourceful and make do with what you have. There's no reason why your first mate can't also be your pup!
Now that you've got the basics down, weigh anchor, hoist the mizzen, and sail on over to shop our cool collection of pirate gifts! Arrrrrrr!

Bottoms Up! 30% off Shorts, Pants & Skirts

30% off Shorts, Skirts, and Pants for Babies and Kids
Bottoms Up! Score big and go long (or short!) with 30% off pants, shorts and skirts this week only! Save on great styles from Appaman, Psychobaby Brand and more - stock up for the rest of this summer's adventures! Luckily for all of us, shorts have come a long way from the blousy pantaloons of yesteryear...
However, things stayed weird for a while after knickerbockers went out of vogue... can you believe these Seventies-era inflatable shorts? Marketed as a weight loss aid... they'd also probably also keep you afloat (in case someone couldn't handle looking at your insane outfit, and pushed you into the swimming pool). 
We're also pretty intrigued by this knitted pair... guess you'd better watch out if you let any cats sit on your lap while wearing these! Now that we've gone over what not to wear, how about settling for some super comfy cotton shorts or cool personalized pants?

Get your dancin' pants on and bust out your best moves to this (bizarre) fun classic from 1957... Short Shorts by the Royal Teens. The lyrics to this song consist solely of:  "Who wears short shorts? We wear short shorts. They're such short shorts. We like short shorts. Who wears short shorts? We wear short shorts!" So put on your short shorts, your long shorts, your swim shorts, your skirt or your pants and shake that Psychobaby booty!

As Seen On The Today Show!

Personalized Pillowcases for Kids
Our personalized pillowcases for kids were featured on The Today Show! We're so excited that our awesome pillowcases were chosen as "summer camp essentials to pack for your kids!" Being away from home can be scary, and having something that reminds your little camper of their own room will definitely make their cabin feel a little cozier. The Today Show loved our Hello My Name is Pillowcase design - it comes in four bright colors that are perfect for summer!

Psychobaby Hello My Name is Personalized PillowcasePsychobaby Hello My Name is Personalized PillowcasePsychobaby Hello My Name is Personalized Pillowcase
We have exclusive camp-themed pillowcases too, and a ton of other cool designs to jazz up your Psychobaby's tent/bedroom/blanket fort. Watch the segment from the Today Show below, with guest super-mom Meredith Sinclair. She offers a great suggestion in this clip - if your child has a special stuffed animal or blankie that needs to stay somewhat secret, just tuck it inside the pillowcase! Such an easy and sneaky way to keep tears away. 

Now that you have a good idea of what you're going to need to pack to keep your camper happy, take a trip to our custom shop to check out all our camp and sleepover-ready personalized pillowcases!

Hey Dads! We're Wishing You a...

Happy Father's Day from Psychobaby!
To celebrate all the rad dads we know this Father's Day, here's ten of our favorite rockin' papas! We're not sure what it is about musicians, but they have a knack for giving their offspring super cool names. Read on to find out a little more about these ten cool daddies!
Elton John (along with partner David Furnish) is raising two little dudes, Zachary Jackson Levon and Elijah Joseph Daniel. We like that Papa Elton paid tribute to some of his songs ("Levon" and "Daniel"). If he keeps this up, we might end up seeing baby Bennie or baby Jet! Not only has Elton been knighted, he's also been inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. On top of that, he's god-father to John Lennon's son Sean. Busy guy, that Elton! Alleged bat-biter and 'Prince of Darkness' Ozzy Osbourne is proud papa to daughters Aimee, Kelly, Jessica Starshine, and sons Jack, Louis John, and Elliot. Ozzy must have passed on at least a little rockstar drive to his kids... daughter Kelly released two studio albums, recorded a cover of a Black Sabbath song with her dad, and as far as we know, has never beheaded any rodents! Kanye West - although not technically a daddy just yet - has us excited to see what he and mama-to-be Kim Kardashian name their little one. Our guess is it will probably start with the letter K. We'll get to find out soon, Baby 'Ye is due sometime this July!
Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day has two rocking sons, Joseph Marciano and Jakob Danger (such an awesome name). Joseph drums for the punk band Emily's Army - guess the apple didn't fall far from the tree in the Armstrong household! Speaking of apples, we're giving Chris Martin of Coldplay the award for most memorable baby name - Apple Blythe Alison. Apple's younger brother ,Moses Bruce Anthony, is definitely holding his own in the cool baby name contest. We hope Chris gets enough Apple every day to keep the doctors away! New daddy Jay-Z only has one daughter with wife Beyonce, but holds the Billboard record for most number one albums by a solo artist - 12! With that kind of prolific output, we'd be surprised if he doesn't give daughter Blue Ivy at least one or two siblings to jam out with. With the combination of Jay and Beyonce's talent - wouldn't their kids have to grow up to be superstars?
Dave Grohl of Nirvana, Foo Fighters and Them Crooked Vultures has two sweet girls, Violet Maye and Harper Willow. We're pretty big fans of his music, and we'd also like to point out that not only does Dave know how to seriously rock out, he very clearly knows how to rock a sweet mustache. Steven Tyler, front man of Aerosmith, is also father to Mia, Liv, Chelsea Anna, and son Taj Monroe. Liv is now raising the next generation of rock royalty, - Steven's grandson Milo William (whose dad is Royston Langdon of British rock band Spacehog)! Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones has an impressive amount of progeny... seven kids and four grandchildren. His kids all have great names -Karis, Jade Sheena Jezebel, Elizabeth Scarlett, James Leroy Augustin, Georgia May Ayeesha, Gabriel Luke Beauregard, and Lucas Maurice Morad. Mick has also been knighted, like fellow countryman Elton. Most of the time, it's pretty embarrassing to watch your parents dance, but Mick's kids have to be impressed that there was a #1 single (Maroon 5's 'Moves Like Jagger) penned about his dance skills!
Last but not least on our list is another Brit, John Lennon, seen here with son Sean. (Sean's rocking an old-school personalized t-shirt, we like your style, kiddo!) Fun rock kid fact: The Beatles song 'Hey Jude' was originally written by Paul McCartney as 'Hey Jules,' for John's eldest son Julian. Young Julian also gave The Beatles their inspiration for "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" - he later said the song was based on a picture he'd drawn of his classmate Lucy, surrounded by stars. So if you're ever feeling creatively challenged, try hanging out with your kids! They're the coolest, craziest, smartest and most entertaining people you will ever meet.

Find even more rocking moms and dads on our Pinterest board, and to all the awesome Psycho-papas out there, we're wishing you a wonderful Father's Day!
