History to a Tee Encourages Kids to Choose Positive Role Models

Whenever people talk about the decline of modern society, somebody will inevitably point out that our kids tend to worship people who are famous for all the wrong reasons.

Their heroes are reality TV stars who make headlines for getting arrested, athletes who lose their medals for testing positive for performance enhancing drugs, and rap musicians who create music that disrespects women.

If you want to encourage your kids to choose positive role models, I urge you to check out the History to a Tee website.

History to a Tee was created by two moms who wanted to provide their children with a way to show their appreciation for some of history’s most influential people. They created a line of children’s t-shirts representing various historical figures.

Each t-shirt features a drawing of the historical person and a description of what they did. The bold colors and fun font choices make these shirts almost look like tees from your favorite band.

The History to a Tee lineup includes shirts representing people such as Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Rosa Parks, Helen Keller, Frida Kahlo, Thomas Edison, and Charles Darwin.

I love that the company has chosen to offer both male and female heroes from a variety of fields. I know my son would enjoy a Charles Darwin shirt, since he is very much into anything that has to do with science.

At this time, History to a Tee only sells t-shirts for children. I would love to see this company expand to offer hoodies and items for adults. There are several designs I want to buy for myself, especially the Frida Kahlo shirt.

What do you think of History to a Tee? Would you buy one of these shirts for your child?

    I applaud the idea but I don’t think the designs are hitting the right note to appeal to kids. Need to work on the cool factor!
