Alien PjsI adore seeing my kids in their pajamas–preferably 100 percent cotton or fleecy and definitely soft–ready to curl up with me at the end of the day to read and share stories. We recently received a pair of Hatley PJs and they quickly became bedtime favorites. Moreover, they satisfy our PJ requirements: 100 percent super-soft cotton (even after being washed and dried) and available in fabulous patterns (ours have aliens). I know how they look should not matter as much as how they feel and wear, but I admit to being picky about designs and colors (it’s the designer in me, I can’t help it), and finding pajamas for boys without sports or spooky motifs is hard. These PJs have fun themes such as mermaids, fish, frogs, bears in more colors than just blue and pink. Happy to say, Hatley has adorable pajamas for both boys and girls (size 2-7).

The Details: Hatley’s children’s pajamas are 100 percent cotton, super-combed for softness and comfort. $27.00 for 2-piece set. Available online at Hatley,com.
