Game Day

Gearing up the little ones for football season

Tonight is the season opener for Dallas. (Well, for preseason, anyway.) Which means it’s time to start the brainwashing. For nontraditional team spirit, start with local Etsy boutiques such as LoveWrapped: the Dallas-based store sells hand-crafted two-tone beanies ($15) for newborns and toddlers customized to support any team (add a flower at no additional cost). Embroidery Beauty makes simple short- and long-sleeve bodysuits that read “I heart fill-in-the-team,” with cute football appliques for newborns to 24 months ($18.99 each). Our favorite might be the couture tutus in team colors ($14.99 each) by Shaye Lees Place. If you prefer the official stuff, Baby Fans sells everything from pacifiers to infant jerseys, pimped out in any professional or college team’s colors and logo. And when it comes to wee Cowboys fans, perhaps the most tasteful team spirit we’ve seen is Baby Bliss’s blue and gray ERGObaby carrier.
