Gap + Mr Men Little Miss Family Reading Event
BabyGap is collaborating with Mr. Men Little Miss this Spring to create a limited edition collection featuring beloved characters from the iconic children’s books created by British author Roger Hargreaves.
Mr. Men Little Miss is an iconic lifestyle brand that celebrates its 45th anniversary in 2016. With 86-strong cast of characters, including such favourites as Mr. Bump, Little Miss Sunshine and Mr. Tickle, the stories have brought fun and laughter to generations of families.
Launching on January 25th, the collection includes onesies, bibs, blankets socks and hats all designed with Mr. Men Little Miss’ signature bright colors and bold lines. Many of the series’ original characters make an appearance including Mr. Bump, Little Miss Hug, Mr. Happy and Little Miss Giggles. The collaboration also introduces two new, specially created characters: Mr. Gap and Little Miss Gap, who are based on Gap founders Don and Doris Fisher.
In conjunction with the collaboration, 20 Gap stores across the country will host a celebration of reading on Saturday, February 6 in partnership with Milk + Bookies, a charitable organization that celebrates reading and provides books to under-resourced families. Guests will enjoy a Mr. Men Little Miss book reading by a local mommy blogger, refreshments and activities for children and the opportunity to take part in a book drive benefiting a local Boys & Girls Club.
I had the opportunity to be a guest reader at the Hoboken, NJ Baby Gap and it was so much fun!

It was so nice to give back to the community and share some of our favorite stories. We had about 10 children come to the store and listen to Little Miss Hug and Mr. Strong. My daughter loved the coloring sheets and cookies!
Our reading is in full swing! Thanks to @mommalewsblog for coming in and sharing the #mrmenlittlemissgap event with us!! #storytime time A photo posted by baby Gap Hoboken (@babygap_hoboken) on
