NY Vintage Babysuits

Not available for purchase.

That's no ordinary baby you're raising: that's a junior urban adventurer. She's becoming an expert pigeon spotter. He's a connoisseur of farmers' market steamed veggies. And they're already waxing nostalgic over how the city used to be when they were younger. At least they would if they could talk.

Show off your little city-dweller's urban pride with these nostalgic, illustrated babysuits. The graphics are officially licensed from ads that once appeared in New York City's commuter trains. Images of public playgrounds, beach-going mermaids, and lessons in subway etiquette are screened in bright colors onto 100% organic cotton. Designed in Brooklyn, New York. Made in Israel.

Sold individually.
100% certified organic cotton

Josh found these adorable babysuits, and as Brooklynites we went gaga for them! Of course, these artsy outfits aren't just for New York kids. From NYC to small town or country, we think fashionable babies in all crawls of life will love these soft organic cotton babysuits. But we need your help picking the print! Check out the variety of vintage subway advertisement illustrations in the thumbnail below the main image, then let us know which designs you love best.

You should sell them as a set for $24. My favorite print is Vintage New York Kid because it's the most colorful.

Sell as a set of 2 for this price, and I would consider purchasing as a unique gift.

I would never spend $24 for a onesie, it doesn't cost that much to silkscreen these.

These are so cute; I wish they came in adult sizes or as prints.

Love it if it was packaged with two as a cute gift set for $24.

Super cute but 3 for $24 is a price I could like. After seeing what a baby can do to a "babysuit" there is no way I'll pay more than $9 for even a really cute one!

Cool for anyone living in NYC, or has a great affinity for it. For the rest of us, no real draw.
