The Talking Shirt Review and Giveaway!

*This post is brought to you by The Talking Shirt.

My six year old is just getting to that point where she has learned to read and she is finding a lot of joy in it. She is reading everything. Cereal boxes, billboards, even over my shoulder as I type this  (Shari - go play!)

While it can drive me nuts sometimes, (can you imagine trying to get through the grocery store with a child wants to read, out loud, every word, on every product?!) it's also very cool that she is enjoying reading. What is less cool (by a lot!), is trying to explain some of the things she is reading.

"Mommy, why does that ladies butt say "Juicy?"

"I think that little girl is in trouble. Her mom made her wear a shirt that says, "Brat."

The worst was the shirt she saw where the owner was declaring herself a "B&%!$!"


That's not the message I want my daughter taking in or putting out into the world. The Talking Shirt company was founded by a mom who was similarly disturbed by all of the inappropriate things that girls of all ages have been wearing as of late. Instead, she wanted to put out a positive message, and so The Talking Shirt was born. Their messages of positivity really resounds for me (if you've ever read some of my silver lining posts, you'll know that I like to look for the positive in life).


Not limited to just girls, The Talking Shirt has tees for boys, women and even very young ones! I now have a shirt with a positive message for each of my children. I love how easy it was to find something that was just right for every child. Each shirt has a message that is perfect for each of my children, though there were so many that seemed right, it was difficult to choose!

Finally, I was able to choose my three favorite, but the one that resounded the most was for my littlest lady - Sophia. Her shirt is a quote from William Shakespeare that says, "Though she be but little, she is fierce!" It is perfect for her! My middle child, Shari is beautiful (I'm not biased at all, of course!), but I feel that she sometimes isn't very humble about it, so the shirt that reads, "It's nice to be pretty, but prettier to be nice" was just right for her. There aren't many boy shirts to choose from, but I was still pretty satisfied with the one I found for Alex, my 9 year old. His shirts reads, "Don't forget to be AWESOME". I am very happy with my selections, and my children are too!


We have had these shirts for several weeks now and my kids have each worn them several times. They go through the wash perfectly. There has been no fading, the lettering is still perfect, and there has been no shrinking. I am very impressed with the quality of the shirts for the price!

Most of the shirts are only $20, though the longer sleeved ones are $22 for children (you can also find a great sale price of only $7.50 on some!). The adults tees go for $26 and $28, respectively.  It's a decent price for a shirt that's going to last - and one that you will hope your kids wear often!
