Don't Feed the Garanimals

Ok, so a few weeks ago I was visiting with my sisters at my parent's house in Nevada. We were talking Garanimals, of all things. Except I was saying it wrong. I was saying "Geranimals". I stand corrected.

Anyway, in case you do not know what these are, they are a line of children's clothing consisting basically of t-shirts (long sleeve and short sleeve), pants and shorts. On each item of clothing there is a "hang tag". On each Hang Tag there is a little animal. This is to help the toddler learn how to MATCH his or her clothes together without help from Mom or Dad. One of my sisters didn't realize this. She knew there were animals on the tags, but never realized the purpose behind them. Well, the Garan clothing company has been doing their little matchy hang tags since about the time I was born.

Back then they looked like the one one the left. Now, they look more like the one on the right.






















So a friend and I were talking, and he is color blind. He stated that he only wears his "outfits" in the same coordinating ensemble his wife buys them in, as he is color blind. Then he made a comment that perhaps they should make a line of Garanimals for men. But instead of animal hang tags, maybe they could have tools on them or something. "I don't know about this concept," I said. "I mean, there is color coordination, which is fine. But there is just something about a grown man all "matchy-matchy" that just seems too weird."

I mean, seriously, though... Do we WANNA see grown men walk around like this...



Love these 2 in any movie together, by the way!








Yeah... I didn't think so. No. I think the Garanimals for Men can stay on the back burner for a little while longer. Hehehe! :)

LOL, I always have a hard time getting my husband to match, but those pictures are way to much! Never liked plaid anyway, but it reminds me when our daughter was in kindergarten and I came home from work he had her dressed in a red and green plaid skirt and a pink and purple flower shirt! It was a good thing I came home before she went to school. My husband said that is what she wanted to wear!!

I have bought some Garanimals clothes, and I seriously didn't know that was what the animal tags were for! I guess if you see Hailey wearing mis-matched clothes, now you know why!!
