Pirates are ‘in’ again! I’ve noticed that there are a few children’s programmes with pirates but these days the females have an equal stake in the battle and the bounty. I like that! As a child I thoroughly enjoyed swashbuckle films. (Psst… I still would like to learn to fence) While its true the history of pirates in the Caribbean isn’t romantic like the films, I prefer to think of those instead. I fell in love with the harry & lily pirates t-shirt in the me&i SS14 collection because of the vibrant colours and the easy to wear style is suits to my children.
While there’s two years age gap between Angelo and Valentina, development-wise the gap is closing fast. I thought it would be sweet for them to have something fun, that captured their free spirit and for a moment they would be the same. Enter me&i’s harry & lily pirates t-shirt. When the package was opened both children were thrilled. Valentina’s little face positively lit up. I’m sure that she was responding to the vibrant colours and the pirates print at the front. She always gets excited by colour and characters her size, so to speak. Angelo was pleased to see the pirate print but even more so, he liked having the same top as his sister. Once dressed, I rigged-up a ship made of plastic crates for them to play. Angelo wore his t-shirt a few times and even slept in it one night. Eventually, I washed both t-shirts. Honestly, I forgot to check the care instructions and did my usual 40 degrees wash and dry but. Both t-shirt came out as good as new! The prints at the front were not tarnished in any way. They were ready to be worn at our impromptu family barbecue last Sunday. We all know that buccaneers (pirates) love a good barbecue.
I think that the harry & lily pirates t-shirt is a good buy. It’s comfortable to wear, easy to layer and it has good stretch. The smaller baby/toddler size (that Valentina wore) has two fasteners at the neck which makes it easier dress smaller ones. The t-shirt is made of 95 % cotton and 5% elastine. I should also mention it bears the mark of being ‘Confidence in Textiles’ which means that they have been tested for harmful substances.
New and old me & i fans may be interested to know that more items have been added to the SS14 collection and they are now available for purchase. Along with harry & lily, fans are sure to find other fun wearable pieces that both girls and boys will enjoy wearing.
