Shopping for Boys' Pajamas

By Renee Gerber , last updated July 11, 2011

Boys always seem to be in need of great pajamas. When they are small, and even a little older, kids are always growing and it is easy for them to grow out of their clothing faster than you can imagine. Fortunately, there are many places you can go to buy new boys' pajamas in a wide variety of sizes.

Depending on how old your son is, he may have a specific preference as to what kind of pajamas he might want. He might be into a certain superhero or cartoon, such as Spongebob Squarepants, for instance. Therefore, you will no doubt want to buy him print pajamas that feature his favorite superhero, cartoon character, professional wrestler or a certain type of animal he loves. This actually helps him to be more eager to go to sleep at his scheduled bedtime, as it makes it fun.

You can also choose boys' pajamas depending on what time of year it is. Flannel footie one-piece pajamas are extremely popular during the winter and are appropriate in particular for newborns, toddlers and very little boys. If your son is elementary school age, he would probably prefer a great, comfortable pajama shirt and pants. At the same time, spring and summer pajamas for boys will be lighter and more comfortable for the warmer weather seasons, with shorter pants or shorts and t-shirts.

In a nutshell, you can shop for boys' pajamas at any department store you can think of that carries children's clothing: Kohl's, Macy's, JCPenney, Sear's, WalMart and Old Navy are great options for locating a nice pair of comfortable pajamas for your son. Prices are highly reasonable at these stores, as well, and you can expect regular low retail prices, as well as great sales and discounts on occasion. At stores like Kohl's, for example, it is not at all uncommon to find items selling at half their original price, and there are many different varieties from which to choose.

If you are not intending for the pajamas to be a gift for your son, bring him along with you on the shopping trip. Depending on how the pajamas are set, meaning whether they are on a hanger on a rack or in a plastic package, you might be able to take him into the fitting room so he can try them on. Of course, you can also ask him which sets he likes best, if he is old enough to tell you.

This is a great idea, as it gives your little boy the feeling of pride in knowing that he got to choose his own great pajamas he will no doubt love and have fun wearing, whether he is sleeping or has just woken up and is eating breakfast at the kitchen table.

You can also shop for boys' pajamas online. Your favorite department stores all have options for customers to shop on the web, and prices will match those in store. In addition, Sleepy Heads is an online store that caters specifically to sleepwear for men, women, girls and boys. Their prices are a bit higher than what you would find at your favorite department stores, but it might be worth your while to check out.
