Fashion-savvy kids will be making room in their dressers this summer for the latest wearable trends from Mugwaz, a decorate-it-yourself brand that produces inventive craft-fashion-fusion kits for girls and boys. The new Mugwaz Teez kits let kids express themselves with three hip, color-'em-yourself T-shirt designs.
"Mugwaz kits inspire kids to be creative and have fun," says Bree Altman, Mugwaz founder and president. "When they're done, they have a cool T-shirt that they made themselves and will be proud to wear! Every child is one of a kind, so why shouldn't their shirts and accessories be, too?"
Named after Altman's pug, Mugwa, Mugwaz is a leader in the craft-fashion-fusion market. Since 2004, the company has grown from the original Mugwaz flip-flop decorating kits to include Bagz, Beltz, Take-Out Linkz and now Teez.
The 100% cotton Teez come in three designs ready to be jazzed-up by aspiring designers and young crafters alike:
- Whimsical girls can show off their artistic side with the "funky diva" shirt. The necklaces printed on the shirt have lots of charms, including hearts, butterflies, clocks and even a "mug"-shot of the company's namesake pooch.
- For the little sophisticate who wants a more "bling" design, check out the "glam goddess" shirt with its huge gem and strings of giant pearls.
- Boys and girls will have fun decorating the "business casual" style. This geek-chic tee features a collar and buttons, a "Hello. My name is..." tag, a slightly askew tie and a pocket that can be embellished with drawn-on pens, campaign buttons, patches, badges and more.
Kids can practice their artistic skills and let their imaginations run wild while creating these wearable masterpieces.
Building on the existing line, Mugwaz Teez are another excellent gift, a rainy-day activity, an innovative party favor, a great way to exercise creativity with parents, family, friends, a bunk, scout troop or cheerleading squad or a "to-do" for kids at wedding receptions and other events where activities are traditionally centered around adults.
Mugwaz Teez come boxed with six non-toxic, washable fabric markers neon for girls and solid colors for boys. Available in sizes 6 - 12, each kit retails for an affordable $18. The tagless, all-cotton tees are soft and easy to care for, too.
