but they love it!!

i can understand not wanting them dressed head to toe in the stuff but do you not even buy small items like wellies, slippers, trainers, dressing gowns, swimwear, socks, pants, vests etc with them on??

bizarre!!

As much as I tried not to I gave in.
They do love it so its hard not to.

My ds's face when he puts on Thomas the Tank socks grin

I do. Pyjamas! And Disney knickers! Which my DD loves

My son wears a Fireman Sam outfit, yellow trousers and red jacket and he loves it. He has 2 pairs of the yellow trousers. What the heck? grin

Does that make me a total chav? hmm

Mine have some character clothing - mainly PJ's but the odd t-shirt and sweatshirt too.

MsDemeanor Fri 18-Jul-08 19:02:49

Only pants. Disney princess pants to be precise. Nobody can see those!

DS gets character pyjamas, socks and underpants (and some non-character versions, too).

Ds2(3yrs) has a couple of Mr Men T-shirts from M & S and I bloody love them.

Character pants are very good for potty training.

Buda Fri 18-Jul-08 19:03:19

PJs, undies etc are OK.

Have bought DS a few t-shirts of various characters - enough to make him happy but not ott.

Now all he wants to wear is football kit!

I hate it but as soon as DS got to the age where he is so excited by it I gave in straight away.
He has all character pj's, one Thomas T shirt and spiderman pants!

Sod the Dcs I have a spongebob t shirt

objectivity Fri 18-Jul-08 19:04:58

Only pants. And only boy pants as the Disney Princess ones make me want to vom. Sorry.

I saw a really cool T shirt in River Island recently (for me) but then realised it was a MickeyMouse item. Yuk.

really only pants? you can't see vests either. and not many people see you in your slippers or dressing gown...

beansmum Fri 18-Jul-08 19:07:14

Pants, yes. Everything else, only if they are characters I like and secretly wish I could have on my clothes.

cocolepew Fri 18-Jul-08 19:08:21

We have pjs, pants,socks and T-shirts of
Disney Princesses
Spongebob
Scooby-Doo
Dora
Bratz
Dr. Who

objectivity Fri 18-Jul-08 19:08:22

But I see them!

I could do vests I suppose, but I like nice white unadulterated vests. Slippers? No way! I'd see them all evening.

ButterflyMcQueen Fri 18-Jul-08 19:08:44

no none nada
he does not know many characters anyway as he does not watch tv

ds doesn't have vests, slippers or a dressing gown. And I would still have to see him in them if he did.

PortAndLemon Fri 18-Jul-08 19:09:51

DS has never worn a vest in his life (unless you are counting baby vests). I suppose I could daub a character on his chest in body paint if it will make you happy... grin

ButterflyMcQueen Fri 18-Jul-08 19:13:25

why is it bizarre not to?

nappyaddict Fri 18-Jul-08 19:16:48

and you don't see socks either ... don't get it!

chocolatespiders Fri 18-Jul-08 19:17:20

never really thought about it but just have and we havent got any

dd1- 10 used to have bob the builder clothes

dd2- 4 hasnt any

ChirpyGirl Fri 18-Jul-08 19:19:13

DD didn't until she grew into her bag of hand me downs from her (boy) cousins.
She knew Fireman Sam as he is her best mate's favourite toy so she went speechless with hysteria at the thought of Fireman Sam PJ's.
They got worn nearly every day (no, not night, day) until the logo peeled off.

Sha also asked for a Dora top last time she filled ehr pasta jar, which I duly bought, she wore proudly once, and now refuses to wear, ditto rest of character tops, she will only wear unlogoed tops now, spots and stripes are fine, but no logos/pictures.
I miss them!
