There's is an unwritten rule that girls' clothes are pink and purple with flowers and frills, while the boys get blue and green with dinosaurs and trains. But two moms in Washington are bucking that trend with their new science-themed clothing lines for girls, according to ABC News.
Designed for those between 18 months old and 8 years old, the buddingSTEM clothing line was co-founded by mothers Jennifer Muhm and Malorie Catchpole. They recently surpassed their initial goal on Kickstarter, raising over $45,000 to get buddingSTEM started. The clothing is available for sale on their website in July.
"STEM" stands for science, technology, engineering and math. The STEM fresh threads come in dresses, leggings, T-shirts and underwear with patterns like rocket ships, trains and dinosaurs. Featured colors are blue, pink, teal and gray.
"We're not anti-princess. We're not anti-pink. We're not anti-girly," Muhm told ABC News. "We just think there needs to be more than just that offered for our girls."
We couldn't agree more. Who says our little girls won't grow up one day to be paleontologists? All it might take is an awesome T. rex sweatshirt to inspire them. But what's even more inspirational? A couple of momma entrepreneurs getting their business off the ground.
"One of the things that I'm happiest about … is what I think we've shown our daughters," Catchpole told ABC News. "We're two working moms. We don't have a background in fashion, and we saw a need and we worked hard."
