About Bug and Bear Kids


My daughter was just shy of three years old the first time she asked me a question I couldn't answer.  "Why are there no trains for girls?".  She was referring to apparel with trains on it, and more specifically at that time, a blanket for her new big girl bed. "Dont worry, we will find one" I told her.  I thought to myself, it can't be that hard to find, right?  Wrong. 

 I searched high and low for the item she wanted and was shocked that in the vast world of online shopping there was literally NOTHING that matched our criteria.  There were hundreds of items with flowers, hearts, and the words "cute", but no trains, trucks or even cars.

 There is a sharp divide between boys and girls clothing, and research shows the effects of this are detrimental, particularly to girls.  As the saying goes "You can't be what you can't see".

Our girls deserve better, and since it wasn't out there, we decided to make it ourselves. From this, Bug and Bear Kids was born. 

Don't get us wrong, we love "twirly dresses", glitter, and pink just as much as the next girl- but that's not all we love! We believe that girls should have options beyond this, and we shouldn't have to go to the boys section to buy them. 

In short- Bug and Bear Kids aims to create designs that reflects the interest of ALL girls.
