PRODUCT STORY
Dream big. Start small. The simultaneous playfulness and dead seriousness of this phrase appealed to me. What visual could do justice to the aspirations that adults project onto little ones? Music is everywhere, but these days fewer and fewer kids have access to quality arts education due to funding shortfalls. I recalled that I had two xylophones growing up--one brightly colored and made of metal, the other handcrafted out of wood. Somehow, I thought that becoming a skilled xylophone player would eventually lead to a career as a concert pianist. This design pays homage to that naive conclusion, and to my belief that all kids should have the chance to learn to play the instruments that speak to them.

McKenna was inspired by "the simultaneous playfulness and dead seriousness" of the phrase we chose for our next babysuit and created this colorful, meaningful graphic. Check out the product story to learn more, then let us know what you think.

Very bright and quickly noticeable. More than one color so will look cute with different color bottoms. Contrast, especially black and white are "colors" a baby can see first and best, so design can engage infant. Simple recognizable design, and it is CUTE!

Beautiful simplicity, wonderful colors. Love the repetition of the keyboard images, from xylophone to piano. Terrific!

This design is authentic. Utterly stimulating! What is "cute" should be the baby. Never too young to instill the most positive gifts our world has to offer. Bravo!

Many are nice. Some outshine the rest, like this one. What I found disappointing is the mean- spirited comments to spoil things for all of us. Clearly those who pretend they don't get it never will. Likely they cannot read either. It is as clear as a bell, and delightful!

I could see this inspired design a lot of different places in addition to children's clothing.

Bright, bold and clear. It'll be supremely sweet on the chubby belly of a little one.
