Mouth Man: chomping toddler hoodies
Ross Valory, bass player for classic rock band Journey, is making children’s hoodies these days when he’s not out touring with the band.
Say hello Mouth Man hoodies by Mouth Man, LLC.
The story goes, according to a news release, Valory was hanging out with friends when one of their kids came into the room with his arms crossed over each other, elbows pointing forward, while making chomping noises like a monster mouth. Then, 20 years later, he experienced a flashback to that epic day and decided he must design animal hoodies that display faces on their elbows so that children can chomp in true style.
Hey, I read a ton of children’s publicity and let me tell you, it’s refreshing to hear Valory not say that when he became a father he was disappointed when he couldn’t find quality stylish children’s attire anywhere on the planet so he decided to design his own (umm, with lips on the elbows). Hint: Every mom entrepreneur makes that claim.
Shirt designs include a gecko, shark, (Veloci)raptor, tree frog, dog, cobra, alligator, tiger and orca. Conspicuously absent from the animal offerings is anything resembling a stereotypically feminine option, such as a pony, fairy or Bratz giant lips.
The hoodies are available in 2T and 4T sizes (and larger) and are printed in color with “eco-friendly inks on recycled fabric.” They are made in America and retail for $25.
