Dos Borreguitas Blog

A New Frontier for Dos Borreguitas November 16 2011

I started this blog over a year ago just after my baby girl turned one, and with the intention of sharing my hunt for cool, nostalgic, kitschy, iconic and hip Latino children’s products. Along the way I've found some really awesome T-shirts and dolls, great music and kids shows, sweet vestiditos, excellent Spanish or bilingual books and more. But the truth is, these products are few and far between or...

Dia de los Muertos T-Shirt October 21 2011

A few days ago I ran across these calavera iron-on appliques as I was cruising down the sewing/crafts section at Wal-mart. I was shocked, **shocked**, when I saw them just hanging there, completely out of place at this random Wal-mart in Maryland. I probably wouldn't have been surprised if I had been in South Texas or California, but in the DC beltway? I think visitors to my house think my...

Great Bilingual and Spanish Children's Gifts From Etsy November 23 2010

Just a few days before the holiday shopping hell fun begins. Joy! Actually, I like shopping, but I usually do better online or in focused stores (Sephora) or boutiques. I feel totally overwhelmed every time I step into catch-all stores like Target or Wal-mart, or even Macy's or Marshalls, because I feel pressure to get through every department and not linger too long in any one. OMG, and Ikea --...

The T-Shirt for Children Who Act Badly September 13 2010

Cabronsito! It's what you want to say when the little Frito (or Sabritas) bandito starts talking back, giving attitude or acting out. Forget timeout. Just put this shirt on them! Or not. I don't know -- I'm back and forth on this one. I think it's kind of a strong word for a kids shirt, even if when you say it in a kidding way and make it diminutive. Is...

UPDATE: Chavo and Chilindrina Shirts in the Hooooouuuuse! August 25 2010

Latin Lingo just let me know that they've just put up their blue Chavo and Chilindrina shirt for sale on their website. Coolness. I did a post a few weeks ago of baby K wearing it. I bought it in the company's store in San Jose, but couldn't find it online. Until Now! In the meantime, last week when I was in Los Angeles I hit up--at the suggestion of...

Pink Latina Tank Top--Proper Attire for El Parque August 19 2010

When you're gonna hang in the public park, gotta dress up for the occasion. Got this pink Latina tank top at the same place in San Jose where I bought the Chavo and Chilindrina t-shirt. But again, can't find this particular one in their online store. BUT, it's similar to this one sold online at Arte y Loqueras. Some of the other children's shirts this store carries are the ones...

El Chavo del Ocho y la Chilindrina T-Shirt August 11 2010

So the U.S. had The Little Rascals, and everyone else in Latin America and Latinos in the U.S. had El Chavo del Ocho. Even if you didn't grow up watching the show, it was at least wallpaper on the television during visits to guela's house.  And that, at least for me, is what makes it nostalgic and made me want this shirt when I saw it at a Latin Lingo...
