I love skulls and piratey stuff myself, and that's mostly what I buy for my son (and myself) I don't see anything wrong with it.

I think they're fun. I made DS2 a skull and crossbones diaper that is pretty kick butt, IMO. I also sewed up both boys some flannel PJ pants with a skull print on it. The 6YO thinks they are "way awesome!"

Mama to my 3 wild things.

I bought my 10 year old a pink and black shirt with a skull and variosous bones that has "oh snap" written on it. Ordinarily I'm kind of against the pink skulls for tweens but she wanted it a and it was something dh would never ever in a million years let have so she can wear it for Halloween time and then we'll retire it. I'm choosing my battles. I figure if she wears jr. emo now she'll make other choices later if it's not a power struggle. Everyone cracks up when they see it.

I wouldn't say "cute" but I like them. I used to teach world cultures and we did a lot about Day of the Dead. I love the sugar skull prints and have a mei tai with Day of the Dead images on it. My son likes pirate stuff and the jolly roger is a prominant symbol for them.

I guess I don't see why it would be inappropriate, but to each his own!

DS picks out clothes with them, I picked a flannelette fabric with skulls and pink bows for some of DD's fitted dipes, & DH made a cool sugar skull drawing for a tattoo. So obviously WE have no problem with skulls. Death is part of the natural cycle of things.

Another part of the new line that has a skull shirt here.

Per the dress code at my older two kids' school, the shirt would not be allowed but I think the shoes would be okay.

eta: the links aren't really working right b/c it's flash, so if anyone is interested - you have to click back or forward a page or two. I tried the shoes I like have several tiny skulls on them.

sorry! I love their clothes. Especially the girl stuff. It's a good thing my DD is about to be in the biggest size they offer. If I had a little girl I'd really be in trouble.

If you become a fan of Gymboree, you can learn the strategies for buying for way less than retail. They markdown pretty often, have coupons, and you can earn Gymbucks. I pay less at Gymboree than I would at a lot of other places.

me too. I went yesterday to buy some clothes for my DD (all marked down and I had a 20% off coupon) so I could get a couple more gymbucks to redeem in a few days. I was just showing DH the retail prices vs. my receipt earlier and even he was impressed. Plus, you can sell them for a good amount when they are outgrown.
