Like many of you, my children have been surrounded by aquariums, plants, and a multitude of animals since (before) they were born. For them, it was a given that we spend part of our days tending to the things we love, and now, as they are getting older, they care for their own little pets and fish. But before they were able to participate, they relied on me and the other adults around them to provide all of their entertainment and stimulation, as well as teach them about their world.
Babies are shaped by what surrounds them – both their environment and the people that inhabit that space. Their early experiences will effect them for the rest of their lives (this article has great information on the subject), so why not stack the cards in their favor and dress them in charming, original clothes that will spark fun interactions? A young child wearing a lionfish shirt, shark nightgown, or sea jelly pants will find themselves in quite a few pleasant conversations about those exciting, beautiful sea creatures. And best of all, the clothes listed here can all be found on ebay, so your purchase helps support an independent artist or small business owner while introducing your own tiny reef fanatic to this amazing world.
