Childhood Memories & The One Brand I’ll Never Forget


There are certain things we remember about our childhood. Little things  like the crunch of fall leaves under our feet, the smell of the earth as we dug into it with our cubby hands, getting the grittiness underneath our fingernails. I don’t remember much about what I wore, as much as how the garments felt. The silkiness of the Indian saris that I used to run my hands over, or even the thick denim overalls I wore. I’ll always remember those overalls.

The metal hooks that clipped onto those little round brass buttons. I loved the sound of that “clink.” I don’t remember brand names, but I do remember the name of the brand that made those overalls. OshKosh B’Gosh. I mean really. How could anyone NOT remember that name? I guess you could say that I became a brand ambassador for them the minute my mother dressed me into those overalls. The name, the quality and the feeling those overalls stuck with me, right through adulthood. I shopped for all three of my children at the OshKosh store and every single piece that I purchased is still going strong.

Several months ago I had the chance to check out the head office of Carter’s and OshKosh in Atlanta. We were treated to a tour of the facilities and spoke to one of the head designers on upcoming designs for the collections.

We reviewed Carter’s, their sister brand earlier this year and loved their line for big kids. I’ve always thought of Carter’s as a baby brand, but they carry such a wide range of sizes!

OshKosh sent me a gift card to use at their shop where I purchased some clothes for my son. We invested in several pairs of pants as they are known to wear VERY well. They also have an adjustable waistband, so I can buy a size larger without having to worry about them dropping down to his knees.

If you’re looking for some new pieces to add to your child’s wardrobe, check out OshKosh. Canadian stores usually have the Carter’s and OshKosh brands in one store, so you can shop both at the same time. If you’re in the USA, they have the same sort of set-up, or if not there is usually one within a close vicinity of the other. Carter’s | OshKosh B’gosh Canada recently launched a new eCommerce site allowing Canadians to shop online! All orders will be shipped from within Canada at an everyday low flat rate of $8.

    As a child I think that’s all I wore. I have purchased a few items for children of friends recently.

    I used to wear OshKosh B’Gosh when I was a kid, and can’t wait to get my toddler into some of their overalls.
