Blue Platypus Tees Made in the USA (Review & Giveaway)

What a Mom Wants

Quality and Unique Clothing!

I love to purchase and promote products made in the USA! Any time I find quality products created and produced in the USA I want to tell everyone about them. That is why I was thrilled to find Blue Platypus! Let me introduce Blue Platypus:

We at Blue Platypus strive to create a balance between kitsch, natural elements, clean shapes, and wearability.  We are mid-century modernists at heart, although we find inspiration in various places. Our biggest inspiration is probably vintage furniture and clothing (mostly 1920s to 1970s). Furniture by Ray and Charles Eames, Eero Saarinen, and Heywood Wakefield heads up our list. Other inspirations include paintings by Shag and architecture by Frank Gehry as well as the ever-fabulous Frank Lloyd Wright…In our line, we want images to speak for themselves, so we try to limit the words. We try to avoid generic sayings and words, and use letters as visual elements as well as meaning. We do name each of our lines, and several designs feature back prints or interesting placement to create 360-degree interest.

I love the whimsical style that they offer. These are not your typical “soccer mom” tees. The offer unique styles that will make you feel good and stand out in the crowd.

Here are some of the tees that I fell in love with:

I was sent a shirt to test out. I was really excited to see the quality of these shirts. I was more than satisfied! First of all the shirt was so soft and comfortable! I seriously could wear this shirt daily! Usually when shirts are this comfortable they are far from stylish. That is not the case with Blue Platypus. Their shirts are comfy and chic! I felt so cute in my Pirate Lass Rose. This beautiful rose-hued soft cotton shirt features a foil design of a trompe l-oeil sailor collar. It is so cute! And just when I would forget about how cute my shirt was someone would remind me! That felt awesome!

Their selection goes beyond shirts. They have unique and affordable bags, pullovers, zippies and more!  Moms everywhere will want to know where you shop!

BUY IT! I know you want one NOW so here is where you go to buy Blue Platypus: OR you can search on here for a retailer near you.
