Clothing is vital to mankind, acting as protective faux-skin against mosquitoes, the sun, and the touch of greasy-handed street people. Bestow the armor of fabric upon younglings with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of organic clothing and merchandise at Wild Child.
Wild Child, a woman-owned, woman-operated business, specializes in natural, organic, and fair-trade clothing for wee folks, from those freshly born up to age seven. A boy can don a durable Liberty Graphics dino tee ($19.50), while a girl can be begarbed in a pre-shrunk Global Mamas batik sundress ($24.50). A cotton thermal blanket ($19.50) keeps babies and freshly baked pies warm, while accessories (such as a funky apron printed with ladybugs, $19.95) and toys (such as an organic monkey stuffed animal, $18) keep them entertained and stain-free. Many of Wild Child's clothes are tie-dyed and hand-painted vibrant hues by local artists, and 40% of the items in the store are Wild Child's own clothing line, giving children the opportunity to roll in the dirt in a shirt designed by a noggin attached to arms, legs, and a torso that once rolled in that same dirt.

Though Wild Child has yet to receive many online reviews, eight Judy's Book reviewers give it an average of five stars:
