Button Up

Don’t be modest. Your kid is as cute as a button.

So get him one.

Brooklyn-based Studio Bento has just launched a collection of buttons worthy of your little looker. The one-inch pins come in packs of five and are perfect for accessorizing backpacks, jean jackets, or bulletin boards.

Choose from the Peace collection (peace symbols, smiley faces, and antiwar messages) or the FunNY Kid collections (smiley faces and NY-focused sayings). There’s also an assortment of message tees that nail your little guy’s funky attitude and playful sense of style.

Getting it right on the button.
