Winds of Change blow through White House Pajamas

White House Pajamas

You may have noticed there have been changes in Washington and we noticed a change in the cute White House pajamas that visiting kids wear. We’ll leave the political comment to others much cleverer than us but we will miss Obama – never again will we get a president who rhymes with pajama. Last year, you may remember those cute pictures showing a visit by the president to the British royals in London. Three year old Prince George showed off his best White House pajamas and personalized robe and became a media star. The pics went global and interest in personalized children’s apparel and footwear increase hugely for the retailer behind the look, My 1st Years. Thanks to that free publicity, Footwear News reports that the company was able to attract around $6 million in investment funds to expand its brand among U.S. consumers who it seems are keen to buy unique, personalized wares for their kids and grandkids. This week we see that super heroes are the pajama of choice for kids in the White House. This time it was the turn of Donald Trump’s grandson Tristan to get the headlines when his Dad posted a picture of him wearing green Ninja Turtle pajamas to lunch. Watch out for more of the Trump family on Instagram, we expect many of them to become social media stars. Talking of super heroes, we noticed the blue and red stretch adult onesie worn by the late Christopher Reeve in 1978’s Superman: The Movie is being sold to the highest bidder. A Los Angeles auction house specializing in, you guessed it, Hollywood memorabilia, is auctioning off the suit described as a “muscle tunic” that was “used in the flight scenes”. If you are interested the opening bid is $40,000. Strangely enough we may have seen someone who could be bidding. Another news outlet showed pictures of Irish Prime minister Enda Kenny admiring superman onesies on an official visit to Spain. If he gets invited to meet the new president he could fly in with those White House pajamas.
