Bilingual is Better
dos borreguitas animalitos shirt

“Que Divina!” I loved the Babel Animalitos T-shirt from the moment I saw it. The t-shirt comes in pink and blue and features three pairs of animalitos “speaking” in both English and Spanish. As our little Spanglish children all know, the doggie says “Guau Guau” in Spanish, but “Woof” in English. The sombreroed pajaritos on this shirt chirp, “Pio Pio!” It made me and Marisol both smile immediately with its playful graphics.

I noticed right away that the shirt was very soft, and after washing, it got even softer, which means it will be a shirt my little one is happy to wear over and over. The sizing is a bit small, so if in doubt, order the next size up.

The family-owned business is run by Cynthia Leonor Garza, who started Dos Borreguitas as a blog which features hip bilingual and bicultural kid’s products. She enlisted a crew of female designers to create the onesies and t-shirts available in their shop. In addition to buying Dos Borreguitas products, the site, www.dosborreguitas.com, is a great place to find latino and bicultural products, ranging from hipster kitsch, like a pan dulce pin cushion, to other fashionable kidswear that expresses a sense of cultura. Particularly at this time of year, it’s a great time to support a mom who is doing her part to promote our kid’s sense of orgullo and fun.

I got a sneak preview of some upcoming products and already have my eye on the Tres Elefantes t-shirt which illustrates the beloved song. And if you go right now, I just noticed they’ve got a sale going on some of their current items. Have fun over at Dos Borreguitas 

Full Disclosure: Cynthia was kind enough to send us a size 4T shirt for Marisol. However, our opinion of the product is entirely our own.
