My little boy loves clothes that bend and move when he does. He eschews blue jeans because they restrict his movements. He likes "soft pants" and he loves finding pockets in this clothes. The pants and Ts in this pattern were designed with my little boy (and all children who like soft clothes and pockets in which to hide small things) in mind. One pocket on the side of the pants, a pocket on the front of the T-shirt, and another tiny pocket on one sleeve (you can always add more!). I hope the little boys in your life love these pants & Ts as much as my little boy does.
