Sure, you come across Dr. Seuss apparel in your local stores every once in a while but you can get more unique items by shopping at TV Store Online. I haven’t ever seen some of their items before. They sent me two items to review and a $40 credit to their store for me to giveaway to a reader of obSEUSSed
Cat in the Hat Hoodie
Check out the Dr. Seuss hoodie! It has a built-in striped hat and front pocket. I got this for my husband. He has been wearing it around today to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday. The kids love seeing him in it. I’ve made my husband dress up in a full Cat in the Hat costume before to juggle at our school, but this is such a quick thing to throw on to turn yourself into the cat. Great for any Dr. Seuss fan, teacher or parent.
Normally $49.95, On sale right now for $14.95. Such a great deal!
Hoodie Review: The sweatshirt is a little thin. I don’t really think it is meant to keep you warm. It is more for the costume effect. It is well made and should hold up well. The hat is sewn on so I don’t know how well it will wash although it is made of a shinier material that looks like you can hand wash it easily. The hat was very wrinkly when it arrived but it pops up well and looks a little slouchy like the real Cat’s hat.
I tried out this Abbey Road style Cat in the Hat t-shirt. My kids recognize this scene from the Beatles pictures. They thought it was funny to see the Cat characters crossing Abbey Road. I liked being able to show off my Dr. Seuss obsession with a little more grown-up look.
T-Shirt Review: This is a nice thick t-shirt. I liked the mid-hip length that allows for a little gathering at the waist. It did fit a little tight. Their ordering site does warn that sizes run small. If you need a large, order XL. It is a boxy, normal cut t-shirt. It would be nice to have a girl's cut available. They do offer several other t-shirt options in girl cut.

Disclosure: I received a Cat in the Hat hoodie and Dr. Seuss Abbey Road t-shirt for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own. I selected my two favorite items from their site to try out. I received no other compensation for this review/giveaway.
My kids wanted to dress up for Dr. Seuss’ birthday today too. We made the Truffula tree by gluing a green feather boa to card stock, then we taped it to a stick we had painted yellow. We used a black sharpie marker to draw the lines on the trunk. My son had a plain red t-shirt so I cut out some white felt and drew the words THING 1 on the circle then pinned it on his shirt. His hair is really fabric that I plan to create another Truffula tree with. He wanted to use it for hair for our photo.
We stopped by Michael’s Crafts Store this weekend and found this blank stove-pipe hat prop for $1.50. My kids helped paint it white, then we added red stripes. Again, we used a sharpie to add black accents to help it look like the art from the Cat in the Hat book. This is a simple and quick craft to re-use for photo opportunities.
I hope you’ll keep celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday this week by dressing up, reading his books, creating some crafts or eating some Seuss inspired snacks. Take a look around here at obSEUSSed for more ideas.
