$15 Best Baby Gift around – designed by children with cancer March 8, 2010

Good friends had their first baby last week and I’ve been hemming and hawing, trying to figure out a meaningful baby gift… And the answer literally arrived in the mail! This sweet Animal Parade Baby Romper immediately caught my eye when the latest M. D. Anderson Cancer Center Children’s Art Project catalog arrived in my mailbox on Saturday.

The animals on parade on this romper were drawn by Micah, Hunter, and Ale, three children with cancer. At just $15 per romper (available in sizes from 3-6 mos. up to 12-18 mos.), you’ll help your little one learn his or her animals and colors while helping many other children “go to camp, to college, on special outings and much more,” according to Eugenie Kleinerman, M.D., head of the Division of Pediatrics and the Children’s Cancer Hospital at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.

Pair the romper with the Animal Parade board book for just $8 more, and you’ll have a complete gift featuring the same illustrations as on the romper!

(You may be more familiar with the Christmas and holiday cards made by the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center Children’s Art Project. They actually have beautiful goods available year-round!)

Just a head’s up on shipping: Within the U.S., shipping is $7 on purchases up to $15. However, it only goes up to $8 for purchases of $15.01 to $50, so it is worth it to order more than one romper, or to browse through their site to see what other gifts you might need/want!
