There's nothing sweeter than my littles all curled up with their favorite stories. I love when they take to a character so much that they extend their reading into their pretend role playing activities. Olivia the Pig is a character that all three of my kiddos enjoy, especially my girls. My toddler just loves to shout out all the silly things Olivia does and laughs at the funny costumes she wears.
Since Olivia the beloved pig has a flare for the dramatic, my middle daughter is drawn to her antics. I love how Olivia is adventurous, curious, brave and a problem solver.
Great attributes for my little girls to mimic and emulate. With Olivia the Pig's long list of "accomplishments" she has added fashion designer to the top as Gymboree has partnered with Olivia the Pig to have her design her own exclusive children's collection for the brand, Olivia for Gymboree.
The collection, which includes cozy graphic sweaters, a bold red tutu and dresses straight out of her storybook, will have kids dressed in style for occasions big and small.
