When I was a kid, I used to be very excited whenever I bought a copy of the newspaper. As superficial as it might sound, the first thing I would always do would be to flip the pages till I got to the comic section and see what my favourite dog had been up to. You see, I was quite faithful to this comic character for a long time and I dare say I learnt to draw it quite well too.
See? Not too bad, right? Yup, I adored Snoopy because he just seemed like the most huggable, tame and endearing dog in the world. Moving along the years, my memory of this comic character slowly faded and when the kids came along, it wasn't a surprise that I got overwhelmed by the likes of Dora, Barney and all the Disney Princesses.
Instead of just letting the kids tell me what they like, I guess it's high time to introduce to them one of my favourite characters as a kid. Thanks to the newly launched Peanuts collection by Bossini, I can't think of a better way to let the kids get in touch with Snoopy and his friends other than wearing them!
Introducing the new Peanuts x Bossini collection
Prior to this, every one of us already owns a handful of Bossini apparel at home because we just love how casual yet cheerful it looks, how easy it is to mix and match and how value for money it is. Moreover, "be happy" is Bossini's brand value and that can't be more apt for a family who believes in a positive attitude and living life to its fullest, right?
When it comes to apparel, I'm more of the T-shirt and jeans, rather than blouse and skirt, kind of mum. I guess that is because it is much easier to move around and when we are not attending functions or events, I prefer to dress the kids in leisure wear too. The main priority is to make sure everyone is as comfortable as can be.
So, it was not hard for us to fall in love with the Peanuts collection because other than getting reacquainted with my favourite comic character, I have to say that the clothes were easy to wear, soft on the skin and the colourful, striking and exuberant designs that spoke of zest got our thumbs up too. Of course, another plus point is that they have designs and sizes that cater to the needs of the entire family!
As for Ariel, though she can't really articulate which is her personal favourite for now, it was not hard to tell that she felt the most at ease when dressed in the polka dotted Snoopy graphic tee and the matching dark blue shorts.
For the hubby and I, we were a little hesitant about how we would look in these bold graphic tees with cartoon motifs and comic strips because they didn't really seem like our style. After we tried them on, I think the one thing it managed to accomplish was making us look, and feel, younger. I guess it's nice to go for a change once in a while, don't you agree?
