When it comes to potty training, a little imagination can go a long way.So says Lino Lakes author Mary Pap, a longtime Minnesota educator and mother...
Kristie Case, a local mom and the owner of the Teeny Bee children’s boutique in St. Paul, has launched her very own line of children’s pajamas — Peregrine Kidswear.
Primarily black and white and intentionally gender neutral, her adorable jammies (and infant hats) are made of eco-friendly, breathable bamboo.
Case hatched her idea for a kids’ clothing line when she couldn’t find what she was envisioning during her first three years of buying for Teeny Bee.
“I was on the hunt for interesting and stylish unisex options for parents waiting to find out the gender of their baby,” she said. “Today’s parents are also buying less and shopping smarter, which means they want items to last through several children, regardless of gender.”
Case and her business partner, Austin West, started the line in early 2017, including universal motifs such as paper airplanes and starry skies.
“I love the idea of highlighting the things boys and girls have in common instead of emphasizing their differences,” Case said.
The name Peregrine comes from the freewheeling falcon that inhabits many areas of Minnesota as well as West’s many-times great-grandfather, Peregrine White, who was the first baby born when the Mayflower landed in the Americas.
You can find the line in more than 100 independent boutiques across the country — including Teeny Bee — and at PeregrineKidsWear.com.
