When our children see vehicles such as trucks and trains they are just AMAZED and captivated by them. We share that feeling at Shirts that Go! All vehicles are interesting, but certain ones are really noticed by kids and tap into their imagination and wonder about the world. Let’s consider a few examples that have inspired us. We take our boys to watch the trains go by at a local train line. We park in, of all places, a fire station parking lot! The parking lot happens to be right on the rail line and only 50 feet from a railroad crossing (with the gates and everything). We know the times roughly for when the Amtrak comes by on Sunday mornings, so we sit in our van and wait for the train to come. Soon, a train horn can be heard off in the distance… the boys start to get crazy excited. The excitement builds as we hear a few more train horns as the train approaches other nearby crossings on the way toward us. Then… the crossing gates start to come down with the familiar “ding ding” warning bells. We are all at the windows now and the boys are riveted. Then – here comes the diesel engine at about 60 miles per hour. It’s loud, it’s HUGE, and the ground is shaking a bit. WOW!! Boys are there with eyes wide open and just blown away by the experience of this incredible machine. Soon, it is gone, and we are kind of spinning as the energy level comes down a bit. We all have a bit of adrenaline surging from that experience for the next 20 minutes or so, and we are so excited about our day. Sometimes we find ourselves at an intersection in our van and there is nothing too exciting going on. Just sitting there waiting for the light to change and the kids are in the back chatting. Suddenly, a siren is blaring and a massive bright red fire engine is trying to get through the intersection. The boys forget whatever it was they were fighting about and are wide eyed with WOW! They have seen this before, but it never gets old. What an amazing machine! There are many examples of this that we all see with our children. What we are seeing with these experiences is their sense of wonder about the world being brought right to the surface by these amazing vehicles. So, what is Shirts that Go! all about? Cool designs on t-shirts… or is there something more? We are trying to connect with that sense of wonder about the world with our line of kids t-shirts. We understand that we cannot bottle that energy and put it down on a shirt somehow. What we can do though is provide awesome shirts with realistic vehicles shown in motion to let the kids share their love for these vehicles. To us this is all about adventure, travel, transportation, early concepts about careers, imagination, dreams, possibilities, awe, and of course FUN!
The Cement Truck t-shirt “Mixer” is a classic American cement truck. We selected the standard rear discharge model because it is the first kind most kids see first and begin to like. We could easily add a few other configurations in the future. The idea with this design is to show a cement truck on the move. Kids and toddlers love these machines for the usual reasons but the cement truck creates added interest with the cool shape. There is no other truck quite like it! We have looked on lots of other kids clothes and boys clothes websites and cement trucks are really hard to find so you have come to the right place. Take a peek at our Mixer kids truck t-shirt. The Garbage Truck t-shirt is a kids t-shirt design inspired by the trash truck that comes to our house every weekday morning. Sanitation trucks that come to residential areas are often the rear loader type with the trash compactor in the back and this was the look we wanted on this first garbage truck design. This is the classic look that most kids know and love. With the recent release of Toy Story 3, which features a pretty awesome looking garbage truck, we expect that interest in garbage trucks will be increased.
My boys each got one of these shirts. They are bigger in size which is awesome. More room to grow into! These shirts came so fast to me! They have very sweet customer service and their shirts are such a great price! I love these shirts so much! They are so unique, I love anything that is unique! My older son is a skinny guy for his age, due to his heart condition so we double up the shirts. So it still give generous amount of room even with a shirt underneath! When my husband saw these shirts, he was so surprised on how rad they are. Every boy needs a shirt that goes! They are just way to rad to pass up. So come stop by and buy your handsome guy a awesome shirt that goes!
