Confession time: I didn’t know it was possible to fall in love with a pair of socks. But lo and behold, LittlePigs shipped a complimentary pair my way for my two-year-old and it was love at first touch.
Designed by a fitness-obsessed mom, LittlePigs offers a host of cute ankle socks with heavy-duty grips on the bottom. They’re extraordinarily soft, made of a thick, high quality terry cotton blend—and the stretch factor is like none I’ve seen before. They promise to fit little ones from 9 months to 3 years, so at $9 a pop they’re a sound investment.
I love the fact that LittlePigs socks provide arch support by way of a thin band at the bottom of the foot. My daughter spends a lot of time barefoot, but since these little socks arrived, she’s been asking to wear them nearly every day.
LittlePigs socks come in a variety of colors, ranging from neutral gray and black to hot pink and plum. What’s more, each pair features a full-length non-slip grip in the form of a sassy saying. You’ll find socks that spell out “LOL,” “OMG,” and “Get a grip,” among others.
In addition to socks, the company has branched out into offering a small selection of athletic-style clothing for babies and toddlers. I was delighted to receive the Minnie Bow Racerback Tank Romper for review—and my daughter was equally pleased. In fact, as I write this, she is wearing the romper along with her “LOL/OMG” socks.
If you’re the mom of a little girl, you can attest to how difficult it can be to find clothing that’s not obnoxiously pink, sparkled, and ruffled. I appreciate LittlePigs for its neutral-colored, minimalist designs.
The romper itself is made of soft cotton and has a loose, drapey silhouette, which makes it a nice option for a warmer day. With a harem-style bottom and tapered ankles, the romper is sure to show off your little one’s hip side—and as a bonus, those ankles can be pushed up to offer more skin exposure during hot weather. There’s also a generously sized pocket, which my daughter has been eagerly stuffing with teacups and doll shoes as she plays around the house.
The downside? My kid, much to my chagrin, is still potty-training, and without snaps along the bottom, I have to remove the whole romper to change her diaper. It’s a small price to pay for a cute and undeniably comfy outfit, but one worth mentioning all the same.
If you’re looking to stock your little one’s closet with soft, comfortable, and adorable designs, look no further than LittlePigs. You’ll be delighted at the quality and you’ll be supporting a small, family-owned business right here in the U.S., too.
