Thanks so much for the lovely email - it's not often that happens when you buy something! I couldn't resist replying to say how impressed we were with your t-shirts and their messages. I have two nieces and I am forever trying to find presents that don't emphasise appearance, or are made of cheap plastic, so these are just fab. I'll be sending the link to my equally feminist friends too I'll work up to the more political statements when I'm able to see them and chat about it with them too. We were also very impressed that diversity is reflected in your models. We both work in the areas of inclusion and social justice so this was quite a find for us!
I think you’re totally awesome 🤩
I am thrilled that you are doing what you are doing! I have a wonderful daughter and a beautiful granddaughter. They both have wonderful minds and I am wanting to do everything in my power to remind them that their brains and their determination and their good work ethic make them beautiful! Thanks for helping with that!!!
"delighted to get tee shirts for three granddaughters ( one girlie, one smiley, and one nicknamed the witchy-poo!!) and an impish great-niece. My 26-year-old daughter now after one!! Thank you Scarf monkey"
"I cant wait to see my wee girl in hers! Got this one in orange for her and it looks amazing but put away right now😍"
"Good to see so many choices for girls who are not just pink princesses. Well done! Will be looking at your site regularly."
"My order arrived this morning. It's lovely thank you. Sure we will be ordering again. I love the well behaved women seldom make history t shirt but think my granddaughter is a bit young yet to appreciate the message (though my daughter in law does)! Thank you again. Happy christmas and here's to a better new year."
"Just wanted to email to say thank you so much for making your T-shirts. My daughters got 2 each for Christmas. I have had to prise them off them and enforce having a bath after wearing them for 3 solid days!!!!! I will definitely be buying more in the future!!!!"
"Hi. I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the t-shirt. It’s just perfect and I can’t wait to give it to my niece who will be 5 at the beginning of next month! A fabulous item and I can’t wait to lit my next niece out with one for her birthday, she will be 7"
"Thanks again for the speedy despatch and communication."
I love the ethos behind your store. I have a boisterous, strong and determined two year old girl and I love that we can celebrate that through some of your designs.
"We have been working together in all of the lock downs. She is making great progress but can’t always see it, and she’s very easily knocked off track. It’s hard for both of us at times. I can’t wait to give her a ‘This girl can..’ T-shirt as a little surprise reward for her efforts."
"It is inspiring and a fantastic find for parents like me that are keen on ensuring gender stereotypes do not affect our daughters' education and development."
"Emma, this may sound cheesy, but I should be the one thanking you! You're the one changing attitudes towards and offerings for children's clothing and it's a pleasure to support your business. I love the message you're sending out into the world, one t-shirt at a time. Let's support our mighty girls (and boys ;) ) to live their best life!"
"Thank you for creating something amazing! I know my 2 girls will love your T-shirts! Good luck & I shall spread the word."
What you are doing is so special. One item is for my granddaughter who is from a dual heritage background and I want her to feel loud and proud! The adult item is for my niece who lives in Brixton and is very involved in the #thisgirlcan movement and reclaim our streets I am proud of her voice and want to celebrate all that she stands up for You are helping us do that!"
"Bought one like this for my granddaughter who is 3. As soon as she saw it she said “ I can be anything”.❤️🥰"
"I bought them from my nieces and they love them. Thanks!"
"Thank you for your lovely e mail. My t shirt has arrived and it is beautiful, I will send you a photo of me wearing it as soon as I can !!!"
"I don’t do reviews, but I wanted to let you know that my daughter absolutely loved the T-shirt. And I hope you continue producing things like this. It’s so refreshing from the awful sexist stuff in the High Street!"
"Just to let you know the T-shirt arrived safely. I love the message. I’ve bought it for my gorgeous ginger granddaughter who I am sure will wear it with pride. Thanks for great service."
"Thank you for the t shirts I ordered, they came so quickly which is great because they’re for my granddaughters one in LA and one in Texas. I’ll be sending them this week with their Easter gifts and if I receive any pictures I will definitely share on Facebook."
"Love the designs and no doubt I’ll be ordering more."
"I just received my parcel and wanted to say thank you right away. I absolutely love your designs, especially the Apatosaurus hoodie for me! I will leave a review and definitely tell my friends about you. My daughter will only wear dresses at the moment but she picked out the t-shirts for herself so I'm hoping she'll wear them. I am so excited to find such great messaging for girls. Life can get a bit overwhelmed by Disney princesses if you're not careful! Once she can read I'll get her a couple with slogans on. They are fantastic."
"Your t-shirts are amazing. I can't wait for my daughters and my best friend's daughter to wear them."
"I just wanted to send a quick message to say a huge THANK YOU for the perfect T-Shirt that arrived today for my daughter Libby. 7 years old and MIGHTY! Especially feeling so this afternoon after opening her (adorable) package."
"How could I fail to love your wonderful product? My granddaughter is only two and small for her age but I couldn’t wait to become one of your customers. I love the opportunity to support Scots entrepreneurship and heartily applaud your mission to young women worldwide. Looking forward to being back in Scotland when possible."
"Love the designs & the message. Looking forward to more designs."
"I received the t-shirt, it's beautiful, I am so pleased with it and am sure my granddaughter will be delighted. I love the message you are sending with these lovely shirts. Thank you"
"Thanks Emma, your tops always go down well with my daughter. My colleagues are in awe of the “never trust atoms” one (I work for a science org). And my best mate and her daughter LOVE their netball ones :)"
"We received the T-shirt’s on Friday and they’re amazing! My daughter loves them both! Thank you so much! We will be ordering again!"
"Thank you for the beautiful clothes. I will be buying more. Would you like me to leave a review somewhere?"
"Thank you Emma, my T-shirt arrived yesterday and I love it! Saving it for a little ones birthday in August and I know her parents will love it too! Great to see such positive messages for little girls!"
"Thanks for the amazing t shirts. Arrived today. Love them"
"My granddaughter’s are on the way to her in H****. I would like to say that your customer service of communicating with me has been outstanding. I wish you well and hope you will be in business forever."

"Hello, I can not think of a more appropriate t-shirt for this feisty feminist future trail-blazer. She is over the moon and so are we! Mother in law has already asked for one!"

'I'm so excited by the designs! My daughter has just started a high school that has no uniform so I'm always on the hunt for awesome t-shirts and hope she'll love her suffragette one. Then thought, why not kit out my god daughters with them for Xmas, so the 4 for the price of 3 was a very welcome surprise!!"
'Thanks - you have a great range of products. Especially showing girls who don't have white faces.'
