Let the little ones play in these cute jumpers and rompers

Remember jumpers? Along with plaid shirts, this denim number originally worn by American farmers and laborers defined 90s youth fashion, which was often called “grunge”.  Boybands wore them with one strap unfastened and hanging slack. Teen sitcom actors wore them. You probably wore them, too.

Although jumpers have long fallen out of the young adults’ favor, they live on among babies and toddlers.  Together with rompers, their rounder-bottomed cousins, they make for comfortable playwear. Kids wearing these one-piece garments can crawl, climb, and run all they want without them getting accidentally undressed.

We know how kids these days can get really busy – there’s always a strange object to pick up, a slide to climb and go down — so we’ve rounded up 10 jumpers and rompers that befit their active lifestyles:

1. For the wee workingman Put your wee workingman in something sturdy such as this corduroy overall by JoJo Maman Bebe. It’s made of soft corduroy so he stays cool while working the playpen. The shoulder straps are adjustable while the sides and the legs have snap openings, making getting in and out of the overalls a cinch.
