We’re going to cut right to the chase. The Boys t-shirt trend that’s having a major moment right now and that will continue to be the belle of the ball well into 2017 is Cartoon tees. While this shirt style is not necessarily anything new, street style stars have proven that this T-shirt style is officially the most versatile item in your kids wardrobe.
Cartoon t-shirts have been around for a long time – they’re for everybody who enjoys seeing art in action, for those who like their entertainment a bit more light-hearted and for kids who grow up watching their favourite toons and feel that flesh and blood actors are overrated.
Old Disney characters – Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck or Bugs Bunny will always be popular. The Sri Lankan market is invaded by new and attractive new cartoons for children, especially with the advent of YouTube, and it’s hard to believe that a nowadays children will enjoy a YouTube cartoon the way that we did when we were kids on the TV. So… it’s not a wonder to see those cute Disney characters out of the box and worn with pride. It has always been a mystery the way that fashion works – there must have been someone out there who made a custom t-shirt with Mickey Mouse and another one saw him, made one too and so on… And then big companies both in Sri Lanka and India saw that this is a new trend and took advantage spreading the cuteness through t-shirt prints showing cartoons in its full glory.
These t-shirts are for the children inside of us, your child might be wearing “Cars” t-shirt or a ”Minions” t-shirt, the cartoons that are into fashion today for them, but you know those times when you didn’t have so many to choose from were also great, because you were enjoying that Disney cartoon at the highest intensity. And that’s why you chose a cartoon t-shirt for you too. Not only Disney’s characters benefit from this huge popularity, but almost EVERY cartoon character that you might think of. Especially old ones. There is a preference for characters as well – while girls seem to prefer the cutest and sweetest of Minnie Mouse, Tweety bird, Barbie and Elsa while the boys seem to prefer the masculine characters: Cars, Ninja Turtles and MARVEL and DC Superheroes all available at the VAISHI Store in Colombo.
