Welcome to PPBB!

Created in 2009 by Melissa Atkins Wardy, a mom and entrepreneur who was fed up of the limitations and stereotypes found in children's clothing. Melissa wanted apparel that reflected an imaginative and diverse childhood for her daughter and son. PPBB is all about supporting the idea there are many ways to be a kid and that every kid is Full of Awesome.

Pigtail Pals & Ballcap Buddies was created to provide parents with images and messages they would be proud to raise their children with. More importantly, PPBB created designs right from our heart that speak to a child showing there are no limits to who they can be.

Through social media, blog posts, the book "Redefining Girly", and workshops and speeches around the nation PPBB and Melissa Atkins Wardy have been educating thousands of parents about the need to preserve childhood through media literacy and creative play. Our work has been featured on CNN, TODAY Show, TODAY Moms, NPR, Forbes, BuzzFeed, Al Jazeera, FOX News, NY Daily News, Chicago Tribune, Boston Globe, and the Ms Blog, to name a few. PPBB has become a leader in advocating for kids, especially for girls. We hope you'll become a part of our community!
