I am probably over thinking it! Just seems an odd phrase for a kids tshirt.

Agree, actually shock

Floggingmolly Fri 29-Jan-16 15:00:30

I agree. Awful hmm

MaisyMooMoo Fri 29-Jan-16 15:01:20

YANBU, totally inappropriate imo.

Urgh that's horrible shock

H&m is a French(?) company so could be something lost in translation.

But still can't really see how it's creepy but happy to be enlightened. Just seems free spirit/wild hippy child kinda thing to me. Children's clothes slogans are not to be taken so literally.

I can imagine what people object to but I think it's okay.

Let's hope the children reading them don't.

H&M is a Swedish company,

But they are not the only ones guilty of this, loads of high street shops put pointless slogans of their tops, this one is a bottom of the barrel

no I think children in this regard are a bit more aware than that. not everything is to be read literally. they know this.

Pannn Fri 29-Jan-16 15:13:24

objecting to this just adds to the 'fearful environment' we seem keen to be creating for our little ones. IF a child was reading this I'm pretty sure they'd be saying "don't be daft".

I hate the ones like 'princess in training' or '100% diva.' Ugh

There's also one that says 'I don't need you. I have wifi'

I agree with mouldy peach, I don't think it's inappropriate, it just doesn't make sense so I wonder if something has been lost in translation

I'd be really worried if my child read a slogan on a t-shirt and took it as something to be acted on. I think most kids barely register what is written on their clothes and just wear them, my dd has a sweater with a rabbit on and 'nature centre' written on it next to it (from h&m as it happens!) I just covered it and asked her what it says, she had no idea and is 6 and obsessed with reading everything aloud. I personally wouldn't worry and def don't think it's worth getting hysterical about.

Asda's 'boys/girls are best' bubble bath, on the other hand, grrrr.

I don't like slogan/ character stuff anyway but I always wonder why people buy these tops. The writing makes no sense- you can pay for normal tops instead. Seems so weird

Snozberry Fri 29-Jan-16 15:23:39

It's a bit weird but I've seen worse. I don't know why there needs to be slogans at all, they're almost always odd or horrible. Is there ever a slogan on a boy's shirt that doesn't say little monster or tearaway or the like.

ZiggyFartdust Fri 29-Jan-16 15:26:25

I don't think its creepy. In what sense?

pictish Fri 29-Jan-16 15:30:26

Creepy how?

hedgehogsdontbite Fri 29-Jan-16 15:33:38

I've seen much worse in Sweden. They do seem to have a strange relationship with the English language. On the one hand they are all very good at it, better than some English people I know. But at the same time they fail to grasp the impact of some of the words they use.

I saw a girl of about 8 walking down the street with her parents once. She was wearing a pink sparkly t-shirt with 'fucking slag' printed on the front. I looked like this >> shock

If I had seen that in H&M it wouldn't have occurred to me to find anything creepy about it.

It's not 'creepy'.

It doesn't say 'hey older man lets run away and have sex in a seedy hotel'. That would be creepy.

hedgehogsdontbite Fri 29-Jan-16 15:35:51

There's also one that says 'I don't need you. I have wifi'

My DD would get that tattooed on her forehead if she could.

Because a child running away is a parents worst nightmare. Not something to be made light of on a childs tshirt.

U2HasTheEdge Fri 29-Jan-16 15:36:56

Not creepy at all.

Stupid but not creepy.
