Summer Headwear at The Boy’s Store

Summer means lots of time outdoors. Therefore if your kids are as sun-sensitive as mine you will want to be sure they are covered, literally! I spend a majority of the year slathering my kids in sunblock. Also covering their skin with UPF clothing. As well as making sure their little heads are covered too. We have a LOT of hats. My son is a hat-hater! He will pull it off the instant it is on his head. And take it off every single time you put it back on. So I have spent a lot of time looking for hats that are not too heavy, uncomfortable, or cumbersome to deal with all day long.

Flap Happy is a great brand because they are UPF 50+ protective clothing certified. They are lightweight, they are comfortable, and many come with straps to help keep them on young kids! The Boy’s Store carries several different styles of the Flap Happy hats, and many are so cute you will wish they made adult sizes.

Here are just a few of the summer hats we carry:

Boys’ Cotton Flap Hat by Flap Happy: This sweet sea animal print will wow all animal and sea lovers.

It will soon be time to break out the gear for water and fun in the sun. Swimming, sprinklers, squirt guns, water parks, lakes, ponds, and the beach will all be places and ideas for keeping cool. That means you will need gear to keep your kids’ summer ready.

Winter is coming: Gloves and Mittens in stock

Winter is coming. So it is definitely time to make sure your kids are prepared. No they don’t need to fight whitewalkers (sorry huge Game of Thrones fan here) but they will need to keep their little hands warm. If your kids are anything like mine their hands probably get cold pretty quickly, but if they are also anything like my kids they will lose at least one of every pair of gloves and mittens you buy them. Which is why I stock up. Every kid has at least two pairs of gloves and one pair of mittens in my house. That way if they lose one, they have a backup. If they leave one pair somewhere, they still have a backup. The Boy’s Store has some fantastic gloves and mittens, they are comfy, cozy, and actually look cool enough for your kids to want to wear them.

Boys’ Knitted Gloves by Melton: These multi-colored gloves are fun, warm, and soft. They will take a beating and keep on ticking. Wash at home in cold water inside out, and line dry.
