Call It What You Want, Porscha Starr, But That Looks Like Lingerie For Kids To Me

This picture here?  This is lingerie for kids.  The mesh lace over the belly and the butt?  The lace on the sides?  If I wasn’t convinced already due to my own familiarity with lingerie as a grownup lady, I would turn right to the Porscha Starr press release and its vehement protestations that their lingerie for kids as young as eight is “age-appropriate” and not lingerie:

Intimate apparel has never been created for all women of all ages, until now. …   Porscha Starr Lingerie will launch the first adolescent apparel collection in the United States. In the past retailers have failed to present a comfortable selection that is not only socially acceptable by parents but age appropriate for its target market. … Porscha Starr is well known for its sexy, edgy, alluring, futuristic, fashion forward designs. However this line is NOT to be confused with lingerie. The Starrlett collection is a charming, appealing and most important an age appropriate line fashioned specifically for young girls.

Artist Creates Real-Life Versions Of Kids’ Drawings Of Their Grandparents

Kids drawing of grandparents turned into photos

Yoni Lefevre was tired of the way elderly people were viewed as frail, weak, and boring in society and the media, so The Netherlands-based designer came up with a way to portray senior citizens through the eyes of people who see them as dynamic characters: their grandkids. In a photo series called “Grey Power,” Lefevre turned children’s colorful drawings of their grandparents into colorful real-life scenes like the one shown above. “Children do not regard their grandparents as grey and withered, but as active human beings who add color to their lives,” she says. “Their fresh perspective can contribute towards a more nuanced and positive view on the composition of our society.” See more awesome photos from the project on Lefevre’s website. Between this and Dinovember, it’s been a great week for creative projects inspired by cute kids. [Laughing Squid]

Awesome Parents Convince Kids Their Plastic Dinosaur Toys Come To Life Every Night In “Dinovember”

Every November, Refe Tuma and his wife wait until their daughters are fast asleep, and then create intricate scenes with their toy dinosaurs, making it look like the toys have come to life overnight and wrought havoc around the family home. The brilliant parents call their tradition “Dinovember.”

It started with the mischievous dinos getting into a box of cereal and making a mess on the kitchen table, and quickly escalated to more sophisticated setups from there. One particularly adorable moment from Dinovember involved the dinosaurs cracking open a carton of eggs and seemingly dining on them during the night. When the girls discovered their toys’ slimy path of destruction the next morning, they whispered, “Mom and Dad are not going to like this.” Keep reading »

Imagined Adult Versions Of Kardashian Kids Are Truly Terrifying

North West, Penelope Disick, and Mason Disick

Do not ask me why VoucherCodesPro.co.uk is in the business of creating imagined composite images of adult Kardashian offspring based on their parentage. I do not have the answer for you. What I do know is that they have done this, and that the results are what I would call “troubling.” North West, Penelope Disick, Mason Disick — all adorable children with perfectly good-looking, if completely ridiculous, parents. What follows is what I can assure you NONE of these children will actually grow to look like. At least, not exactly. Warning: very scary. Keep reading »

down syndrome boy hugs labrador
New Friends

Pets are nothing if not persistent when there’s affection to be had. Nowhere is that better illustrated than this squee-dorable video of a little boy with Down Syndrome being won over with love by a pushy Labrador retriever. The boy, Hernan, lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and is shy about physical contact. At first Hernan isn’t so sure about this big galoot shoving his wet nose in his face. But the Lab is persistent — in that gentle, perfect way all Labs are — and finally Hernan gives him a big hug. Labs are the greatest, aren’t they? I dare you to watch this video — which is over a year old, but making the rounds on the “Today” show and Huffington Post just now — and not get the warm and fuzzies.  [Today]
