Say Hello Kitty + Holy Retro Tees, Batman!

Retro Tees
are Mighty Fine! Share your old-school favorite characters in that new baby gift or for your own kids! If you've gotten a bit fuzzy on the details, here's a cheat sheet of some of our favorites, seen on our collection of baby and kids retro tees!

Little Miss Sunshine
: Introduced in Book 4 of the series by Roger Hargreaves, Little Miss Sunshine has been filling the world with laughter since her publication on September 1, 1981. She can turn "Miseryland" into into "Laughter Land" because Little Ms. Sunshine's her name and bringing a ray of sunshine is her game! Another of Sunshine's pals you might recognize is Little Miss Giggles! To learn more about Little Misses and Misters, go here!

: The elder statesman gracing our retro tees is Batman, who made his first appearance in DC Comics in 1939. Residing in Gotham City, Batman (real identity: Bruce Wayne) fights villians without an "official" superpower, and has been a favorite of children and adults for years. He has starred in a television show with his buddy Robin, as well as many movies such as Batman Begins, which was filmed in part right here in Chicago.

Hello Kitty: Gals everywhere around the world have been saying Hello Kitty since this star's inception in 1974. Created by the Japanese company Sanrio, Hello Kitty has graced everything from tees to erasers, craft supplies and handbags. Hello Kitty is still the cat's meow, and still making pronouncements such as "Don't Burst My Bubble" and "Cute Doesn't Even Begin To Cover It."
