Sumertime Cool. Kids Fashion Starting at $13

Summer fashion for kids starting at only $13? Yup! There's still another hot month left to go before it's time to break out the long sleeves and layers. Celebrate the dog days of summer with a new tank top or pair of flip flops, like this cool guy!
Even if you'd rather run around barefoot, you can still pick up a few last minute summer steals, like these cute tops from Appaman at 50% off.

 Regularly $37, these Appaman Wavy Tanks in Huckleberry and Sunrise are now only $18, and this Appaman Layering Tank in Coral is marked down to only $13! Quanities are limited so shop now and scoop up some deals (you'll have enough left over for a scoop of ice cream... or three)! Feel free to blame the heat of those dog days if you want to have that extra scoop... we won't tell!

Just in Time for Wicker Park Fest Kids - our Fashion Picks!

Just in time for Wicker Park Fest this weekend, we've compiled some of our favorite kids fashion ideas to help your kiddos stay stylish and cool in the crowds! Check out our picks for the tiny concert crawlers all the way up to your walkin' rockin' little ones. 

This post is brought to you by our special guest Fashionista Interns: Troyje Jones and Syncere McCoy.

First on the list, our Psychobaby Sorry Boys I Only Date Rockstars Tank Dress in Red, available in baby and toddler sizes. Troyje liked this dress because it has "a good sense of humor" and "it's a really cute but simple design".  Also, the tank dress will keep your little one cool even when the crowds on the street get thick.

Next for the little dudes, Troyje recommends the Sourpuss AC/DC Gibson One-piece. Not only can you start your baby's musical tastes off right, you can also foster an appreciation for a good musical instrument. She likes this design because "old school AC/DC never goes out of style." Plus, "this outfit matches our baby girl outfit", which totally works for twins or matching rockstar siblings.

Moving on to toddler style, we LOVE this Mini Shatsu Music Player Tank Dress!! Syncere picked this dress because she loves the "suspenders and the headphones, they just look awesome on this!" Plus, it's an easy-to-throw-together outfit...just add flip flops and some sunscreen and you are ready to hit the street (festival)!

Last, but not least, for your little rockin men, Syncere picked the Pluto All You Need is Love Beatles Tee in Green paired with the Appaman Punk Shorts in Khaki.  This outfit is "urban, and natural.  It's just simple but totally fashionable."  She adds that "everybody loves the Beatles!" This is recommended for your chill rocker, borderline hippie kid, who believes in the power of hugs and Beatles music. Because sometimes All You Need really is Love. 

Be sure to stop by and see us at the Wicker Park Fest Kids Fest (July 27-28) on Milwaukee Ave and Wood! Psychobaby will be giving all your little rockers a sweet colored coif for the Festival.  Can't wait to see you this weekend!

The Coolest Backpacks EVER!

Personalized Kids' Backpacks are the newest, coolest item to hit our Custom Shop - just in time for back to school! We converted some of our favorite designs into these rad backpacks, so there's a perfect option for you, no matter what kind of Psychobaby you are. Rock 'n rollers will dig on our I am a Rockstar design in either red or fuchsia. You can rock hard and still be a little bit girlie with hot pink stripes!

Smooth operators need to check out the backpack version of our Mr. Cool Stache tee... perfect for "stache-ing" your school supplies! You'll definitely get some double takes while you're sporting this hip mustachioed bag! For the fashion-forward Psychobabe, we turned our Digi Rainbow design into a totally cute backpack. The best part is, since it's rainbow themed, it'll coordinate with just about anything you wear.
Look - even celebs like Rihanna and Kanye carry backpacks... but we bet they wish their backpacks were as cool as ours!
Along with looking totally awesome, our backpacks have tons of storage, including 2 outer mesh pockets (perfect for holding our Personalized Water Bottles), 2 separate zippered sections (with plenty of places to stash pencils, cell phones and other small items), and an awesome padded space to tuck a laptop or iPad. Padded straps and a padded back panel make it comfortable to carry your stuff around all day, too. Have a look at all our personalized backpacks now, so you can get a jump-start on planning your First Day of School outfit, Psychobaby!

These are our Top 10 Fan Favorite designs - the ones you keep coming back for, your go-to baby shower gifts and birthday presents. We love them, you guys love them, and now they're all in one place!

We're happy to say that most of our Fan Fave designs aren't just for tees any longer - for example, you can get our exclusive Beastly Monster design on everything from pillowcases to picture frames!

FALL In Love With This Season's New Appaman

Appaman is back and better than ever - the first shipment of Fall 2013 clothing has hit our (virtual) shelves and we could not be more in love with it! Hands down, our collective favorite piece is the Route 1 Jacket. We know we say it a lot, but if this came in our size, every single one of us would be rocking this classic number! Let your mini James Dean channel some rebel attitude - stylewise, at least. (Just because your outfit is totally tough - that's no excuse to behave badly!) This is seriously like the 'little black dress' of jackets - wear it with anything, anywhere. Dress it up, with a pair of Appaman's Prospect Pants, or stay casual by throwing it over a cool tee - like one of their new Baseball Henleys. You can't go wrong!

Don't worry - Appaman didn't forget about the ladies. Check out the latest version of their puffy vest - the Moto Club Vest in Pacific Blue. This will be the perfect pop of color on those gray Fall days this year... plus, you'll never get lost in a pile of leaves with something this bold and bright on!
 We're obviously very excited about this Fall collection, and even more excited that our friends over at Appaman have been nominated for a 2013 Totally Awesome Red Tricycle award! If you're as big a fan as we are, help them win in the Most Awesome Clothing Line for Boys category by casting your vote now!
And don't forget to check out all the other cool, crazy pieces in Appaman's Fall 2013 collection!
