If there was ever a “greatest thing since sliced bread” category for pajamas, a brand called Lazy One would be it. I found Lazy One pj’s a couple years ago in a local athletic clothing store and immediately fell in love with them! Since then, I’ve bought more at their website, at Amazon.com and most recently at Zulily.com, where I found them on the cheap.
^^^The designs are uniquely nature-oriented artwork, often featuring wild animals, farm animals, woodland or sea creatures (very few dogs or cats, not as many as you would think) and their captions are humorous. Some of the captions are puns which are downright groaners! One with horse artwork is captioned “I’m unSTABLE in the morning” under the art. Another has a bird with the saying “Tweet dreams.” My favorite is a spotted dragon captioned “I’m dragon my tail.” Some of the animals are doing things like holding a cup of coffee, waking up, sleeping, doing funny camera poses or holding their arms out to get a hug.
^^^What’s nice about these pj’s is that you’re not stuck buying them in a set. You can buy individual collection pieces separately for adults and juniors in any size you need. The crab design set shown were bought as two separate pieces: a long nightshirt and sleep pants with a front pocket for a cell phone. A design set can be available in more than one type of item. You can get 2-piece pj sets for kids, onesies for babies, and footed flapjacks for adults. There are long nightshirts, t-shirts and tanks, pants and boxers for men, women, kids, and some of the men’s pants are designated as unisex. Many of the designs are made to mix and match, as a lot of the background colors and animals are used in more than one design collection. Non-pj items include gift accessories like totebags, spa slippers, baby bibs, note pads, magnets, oven mitts, mugs and kitchen aprons, and even adventure booklets for kids with a story about characters on the pj’s.
^^^Most of the long nightshirts have short sleeves. This red and black moose one was offered with 3/4-sleeves, which is ideal for colder nights. Some nightshirt designs have one or more coordinating pants. The pants matching this shirt were either red-and-black hunters’ checks, or a red background with small repeating black moose.
Qualitywise, Lazy One’s pieces wash up beautifully and don’t shrink after hot wash/hot dry. The pieces I have are 100% cotton and made in India. The cotton used isn’t flimsy…it’s got some substance to it, like a well-made t-shirt you’ve owned forever and that still looks great. It’s heavy enough to wear to bed in cooler weather, yet light enough that summer sleeping in them is very comfortable. And it feels soft against the skin. Plus, they’re just way cool-looking to wear around the house, both for adults and for kids at sleepovers, and super cute for babies. They’d also probably hold up well enough that once your kids outgrow them, they’ll make great hand-me-downs or a cool garage-sale item.
I highly recommend this brand, but they tend to be a bit pricier than pj’s found at Walmart or Target and other run-of-the-mill stores, but a lot less than so-called designer or exclusive brands. I would consider them moderately-priced, an all-around good value for the money. Check Lazy One’s website for designs, variety and price…sometimes they have items on sale. If you like these pj’s, but they’re not available locally and price is a major determining factor, I suggest you check Zulily’s website first, which has a great selection WHEN they carry the Lazy One line. (That’s the thing about Zulily…they don’t carry the same brands all the time.) Zulily had the same adult-sized pieces for between $10 and $15 that regularly were selling elsewhere for between $22 and $30, or more. Do some comparative shopping. Besides Lazy One’s website, you can find pieces and sets on Amazon.com, The Pajama Company or google “Lazy One” for other online sleepwear-specific merchants to get the best price for the type of item and availability of designs. Wherever you end up buying them, either for yourself or as a gift, you won’t be disappointed.
Now….if I could only find Candy Crush Saga designed pj’s for adults, lol!
