The World of Eric Carle and Gymboree Makes Bedtime Fun

Disclaimer: I received products  for review purposes. No other compensation was received. Though the product was free, opinions are 100% my very own.

When two companies that I love, that are designed to make kids feel happy all over get together, what do you get? You get a collaboration that makes kids even happier. If you have figured it out by now from the photo below what's going on, let me tell you. I am a big Eric Carle fan and have most of his toddler books. My favorite being The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Grouchy Ladybug. Mommy and I think that Eric Carle's book should be in every little child's library, just as much Gymboree should be in every child's wardrobe. Yes you all know that I am a huge Gymboree fan, I've said it about a million times but for those who are visiting for the first time, I had to say it again. This fall, Gymboree will have a limited edition collection of sleepwear and playwear for your little ones. The collection will have designs from Eric Carle's most popular books including the Very Hungry Caterpillar plus others.

I was sent the Very Hungry Caterpillar sleepwear and as soon as I saw the pants I knew exactly who it was. I ran for my books, well at least the ones I could find at the time and brought them to mommy to read. I couldn't wait until it was bedtime for me to get into my pajamas. Finally bedtime was going to be fun! I was going to be able to wear my Gymboree limited edition Eric Carle's pajamas and I was also going to be able to read the book together. What a fun combination!

The Eric Carle and Gymboree pajamas that I received is made of 100% cotton, very soft cotton I might add. It also does not have any tags that causes itchiness, it's completely tag free. Yippee! I currently wear size 2T-3T and the one I'm wearing is a 2T. It is snug fitting and the pants that are completely decorated with the hungry caterpillar is easy to pull on with an elastic waist design.

The top shows the word LOVE with the famous caterpillar icon and the neck detail has a tiny satin bow that totally says, hey I'm still a girl even when I'm going to bed. Just the bright illustrations on both the pants and the top is sure to delight and you are going to want you to pick them all up. I can't wait to see the other designs because I'm already in love with this one immensely.

As everyone knows, Gymboree's clothing is very high quality and the sleepwear is no different. While mommy hasn't washed these as yet, I do have other Gymboree sleepwear that has held up over time, so we don't expect this one to be any different.

Look for this brand new line available September in stores. You will be able to order online or find them at your nearest store.

You'll be able to bring a piece of Eric Carle into your bedroom and it will be awesome! Your little ones are going to love it and so will you. If you weren't already Eric Carle's and Gymboree fans then you will be, just like me. This collaborative line gets my TWO TINY THUMBS UP!
