There are a few things that I look for in a shirt for the kids, price, quality and something that allows them to express themselves a bit. I know that the kids look for something looks cool, is comfortable and makes a bit of a statement for them. The Mountain has shirts that meet all of those expectations for both children and parent by introducing a shirt that is super fun and unique for the kids. We were able to sample both the Big Face Baby Orangutan – Youth and Grey Koala Face – Youth.
The level of detail on each shirt is just amazing, it is like you are looking at the animal directly and the way they blend it into the background makes it even look more realistic. The softness of the shirt and the fact that they print the tag on the inside make it very comfortable, especially for our younger son who can be quite picky about tags and “hardness” of a shirt on his body. The shirts wash extremely well, looking just like they were new and ready to go.
My boys wanted to wear them so much even with the cold weather that they put them over a long sleeve shirt so they could wear them to school. Each one of them said that many people including teachers loved the shirts and with my younger son he said one of his classmates said that they thought he brought in monkey for “Show and Tell” as the shirts are that realistic looking! Plus since each shirt is so unique and they have “tons” of different animals there is always something to find for your child, or the animal loving adult. Besides the big face prints they also have other styles of shirts that are made to the same quality that you can check out on the site, which means The Mountain will be getting a lot of our business!
This is just the perfect holiday gift to either box up and wrap or put in your kids stocking. The realistic animal prints, the high quality of the shirts, and a realistic price make this one shirt you and your children will want to own. There are also adult sizes as well so you can also get in on the action, I am already eyeing up a few different ones that I want for myself.
For the wild spirit and true animal lover, The Mountain brings you all the creatures of the jungle to a tee near you! From cuddly kittens to lions and tiger and bears (oh my!), there’s an animal friend for everyone. Great prices, variety and not just another pair of socks in this year’s stocking!
