9 Cute Kids’ Pajamas

9 Cute Kids' Pajamas

What is sweeter than a little one in pajamas? Last year, my sister gave all the cousins matching sets, and the grandparents essentially lost their minds. Here are a few fun styles…

9 Cute Kids' Pajamas

Thoughts? Which do you like best?

P.S. The perfect grown-up pjs, too.

(Portraits by Ana Gambuto for Cup of Jo. Anton’s wearing these Lego pajamas, and Toby’s wearing this construction pair.

  1. Ahh love those celestial nights PJs! My wife bought our daughters those for a trip on the Polar Express train in Durango. Of course there were more levels of jackets on top lol but the PJs still looked cute.

  2. I love the set with the macaroons. But, speaking of pajamas, these aren’t for kids, they’re for adults, but if you’ve never heard of Lake Pajamas, I HIGHLY recommend checking them out. They’re based out of Savannah, GA and use 100% Pima cotton. They feel amazing. I bought the long-long set in Holly, because they looked appropriately festive.

  3. Pjs are the best type of garment every invented. And these are so cute!

    Any chance you can share info on those COUCHES?!? my dream!

  5. Amy says...

    After all these comments, I just bought the Dr Seuss pj set from Hannah Andersson sent for my son and his godmother for Christmas. I’m still gulping about the price (with duty and taxes the prices was $155.00 USD to ship to Canada) but hopefully they’ll love them and wear them for a long time!

    Joanna – this isn’t exxxaccttlyyy related to the post BUT fun fact: your sister’s husband’s book was a $2000 Jeopardy clue last night in a nonfiction memoir category!

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      no way!!!!!! that’s so awesome!!!

  7. Andrea Parker says...

    I’d love my boys to wear cute pajamas but they are always so hot when they sleep. They just wear undies (do you say that in the US? underpants) all year round. Sigh.

  8. Nicole says...

    I have been making my kids matching jammies for Christmas for the past decade or so–they still look forward to them! I have been forbidden to donate the earliest ones, though they’re too small for even the youngest kid, which thrills my mama heart. I love all these prints so much, if only I could find such fun fabrics!

  9. Jen says...

    These are adorable and I’d love to get some for my son who just turned two (yay!). Just wondering about cold feet for the little ones? Socks? Do toddler feet not get cold? Such a rookie mom over here.

    • Rebecca says...

      my kids usually wear socks when they wear footless pajamas.

    • Lauren says...

      As the parent of an almost-two year old I had the same question! It seems like my daughter is graduating size-wise from footed pjs (she wears 3T!) but it left me wondering what everyone is doing about cold feet! Socks seem kind of hard to keep on? As are blankets! I kind of just want to stick with footed pjs for the foreseeable future!

    • Asha says...

      Depends on how tall your child is but we used to use a sleep sack for our kids until they were around 4-5 yrs old. My husband is from Germany and there kids use them until around age 7 (or at least our family/friends did). You can find them on Amazon or at IKEA. It helps avoid kicking the blanket off at night, but there is still plenty of room to move around in it.

  10. Elliesee says...

    My 14 year old is especially tricky to shop for, I try xs in women size or Petit Bateau. There seems to be a missing size between 12 year old and adult. My girls are drowning in pajamas so I don’t plan to add to the collection, but my favorites were the one piece from JCrew. The girls seem to prefer their oldest pajamas. I live in Pajama Jeans during the week-end and love a buttoned down pajama when my hair is wet. For the summer, linen pants work better as pajamas then pants!

  11. Lily says...

    Cuties!

  12. I’m sure you’ve shared this before, but now I’m actually in the market…where did you get your brown leather couch? I love it!
    (Also, Toby and Anton are SUCH cuties. As always!)

  13. Maywyn says...

    Giraffes!
    Why designers don’t offer classy adult pj prints that are as delightful is a mystery.

    • Claire says...

      you should check out Boden. Really cute stuff for women and they have sales all the time. I have found their stuff to be very well made, and the customer service is terrific too. http://www.bodenusa.com/en-us/womens-nightwear#nav

    • Alice says...

      Have a look at Hush and Yawn!! They do AMAZING PJs :)

    • Alice says...

      (Just to confirm- Hush and Yawn are two separate brands…)

  14. Katie says...

    Hanna jammies are pricey but they hold up so well and my girls can wear them for so much longer than other jammies due to their generous sizing. And we like to get the matching ones for Christmas as a family too! :)

  15. It makes me sad they don’t list these with gender neutral sizing. GIRLS LIKE ROBOTS, TOO!

    • Emma says...

      And giraffes! That really annoyed me too. I’m also pretty sure my son would love the stars…

  16. Danielle says...

    So sweet, is Anton missing his front tooth?

    My mom is the queen of gift buying and she has stuck to a formula of pyjamas, puzzles and books for years. The kids go nuts for new pjs and my son literally wears them until his trousers become like capris. I have started following suit and have just gotten my niece a pink plaid set that looks like “grown up pjs”. Lost. Her. Mind.

    • Rachel says...

      Sasha – I always assumed Hanna Andersson pjs didn’t have flame retardants because they are labeled “organic”, but they’re not listed in your link and now I can’t remember seeing a “not intended as sleepwear” tag. Do you know whether Hannas have flame retardants?

      (We always had Costco PJs for this reason but they don’t have the huge sizes we need nowadays!)

    • Allison says...

      Why do you think these pjs are treated with flame retardant? I think that’s pretty outdated and most of these are 100% cotton and specifically say to wear snug fitting.

    • Lauren says...

      Lucie’s list breaks down the requirements here: https://www.lucieslist.com/pajamas-winter/
      She notes that, “jammies you see in stores are usually either snug-fitting OR made of polyester/fleece. If the jammies you are looking at are not one of these, they are likely treated with a chemical flame retardant(s).”

      If the pjs say something like “must be snug-fitting”, I think you’re good to go!

    • Sasha says...

      Allison, i think it’s outdated too. Pretty much all children’s sleep wear used to be made from petro chemicals, and were therefore highly flammable. A lot more parents used to smoke, and smoke near their children, it was a terrible combination. So I believe there is a law in the US that requires any clothing sold as sleepwear to be flame treated, even cotton, hence the *not intended as sleepwear* labeling. Those fleece footy jammies are for sure treated. And now the companies that make the chemicals are invested in keeping the law intact, and frankly, most parents either don’t know about these chemicals, or don’t care. I think all the Halo sleep sacks, swaddle items, baby merlin suit etc are also treated.

      I don’t know about Hannah Andersen, I would email the company. My guess is that if it’s sold as sleepwear in the US, it’s treated :(

    • Sasha says...

      Rachel, adult sizes aren’t treated, maybe pjs that come on xxs?
      Long underwear aren’t treated either. When I realized that cotton pjs are basically just long sleeve cotton shirts and leggings. …..I just gave up the idea of actual sold as pjs for my girls.

  17. Catie says...

    Love these! I grew up in Hanna Andersson pjs (and just about everything else), and I still adore their long john jammies for adults. I bought matching Star Wars Hannas for myself and my dad last year, and I’ve become obsessed. When they started making bedding, I just about lost it….

  18. Allison says...

    I liked the macarons ones but when I clicked through I was even more in love with the mermaid ones! I already have some sheep ones from JCrew for Xmas, but little miss growth spurt has outgrown all her pjs so I’m getting a second pair. Too tempting.

  19. Gillian says...

    Oh my goodness. I have never heard of Hanna Anderson. LOVE! I feel a spending spree coming on. And tube socks for the win! Thank you ladies. x

  20. Megan says...

    There’s nothing sweeter than littles in pajamas! I’ve started a Christmas Eve tradition of putting my toddler daughter and myself in new matching PJ’s. I love that Hanna Andersson has PJs for kids and adults that match. We’ve done striped PJ’s for the past two years, but this year, we’re getting matching Wonder Woman PJ’s!

  21. Janet says...

    I picked some out for all the littlest grandkids on my husband’s side two years ago, and it was such a huge hit! They were the GAP teddy bear fair isle sets for 5 little ones 6 months to 4 years, boys and girls. The paparazzi looked much like that photo you posted, hah!

  22. Flannery says...

    Every year I get my nieces & nephews Christmas jammies and send them at the beginning of December, with a few small other items (ornament, hot chocolate), so they have something to kick off the season! There are 6 of them now, and it’s the only holiday gift that I get them. Keeps me on a good budget, is a special memory for them – my 8year old nephew even mentioned his PJ’s in a little toast at my wedding – and it doesn’t overwhelm them on Christmas Day with TOO many presents.

  23. Kate says...

    Do these come in adult sizes?? (Also, what’s with every women’s PJ set having such wide necks?? My shoulders and chest get cold!!)

  24. Claire says...

    I want the giraffes or the celestial nights in my size please.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      agreed! :)

    • Laura C. says...

      Me too! I don’t like stars patterns, but when ot comes to constellations I adore them!
      I use to buy my pj at the men’s section. The best choices are there!

  25. I personally want to wear the giraffe ones myself.

  26. Gillian from Dublin Ireland says...

    These are so cute! Nothing better than new jamies at Christmas!
    I am wondering does anyone know where I can get onesies with feet for my little boy who is two and pulls his socks off every night (and then of course wakes us all up crying with the cold!).
    I can only seem to find ones with no feet once you go past the 18 month stage. Thanks readers!

    • Gillian from Dublin Ireland says...

      Thanks Jo! Was looking for ones with the feet still attached to keep his tootsies warm but these ones are so cute I might just sew socked into them!

    • Louisa says...

      I’ve loved Hanna Andersson jammies, and also had luck with Leveret. Both have footed pajamas for the toddler set.

    • Alex says...

      I use tube style socks and tuck them inside the pj leg. Maybe that would help? Also Hanna Andersson sells cute toddler sleepers with feet.

    • Claire says...

      Carter’s has pjs with feet that go up to 5t.

    • Caroline says...

      Carters has them for sure.

    • Kara says...

      Gap and Hanna Anderssen sell footie pajamas at least up to 3T, and they’re very cute!

    • Emily says...

      Primary.com sells lighter weight footie pjs to size 3. They are soft and the colors are so pretty. We like them!
