If you have a toddler, chances are you're already intimately familiar with the World of Eric Carle. Your tyke probably has at least one copy of Carle's most famous book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar (heck, we already have two), and you can spot the iconic insect from afar.
Now, I'll be honest.
I'm not the biggest fan of the actual story. It's an insect who eats a ton. Not the most entertaining plotline ever, but whatever, kids adore it.
Fortunately for parents, creator Eric Carle includes stunning illustrations throughout his books that are just mesmerizing. The bright and cheery images successfully achieve the impossible task of captivating children while simultaneously engaging parents.
Now Carle's gorgeous illustrations are wearable too.
Gymboree is introducing a limited collection of play and sleepwear inspired by iconic characters from Carle's classic children's books, including The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
The World of Eric Carle collection is available online and in stores starting September 2, 2014.
To celebrate the collection, families are invited to visit Gymboree stores on Friday, September 5, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. for storytime and caterpillar crafts.
And guess what? Adult styles are coming soon too. (Yeah, it's OK to admit it. You know you want one.)
