Aeromax’s My 1st Career Gear Review – Zookeeper

Photo-A-Day #2915

Eva and I received an Aeromax My 1st Career Gear Zookeeper outfit to try out and review (Opinions are 100% our own). We live around the corner from a zoo. Capron Park Zoo is our favorite zoo to visit and Eva is an expert on all the animals in the zoo. We finally had a nice day to go and visit the zoo so Eva got into her Aeromax zookeeper outfit and took me on a tour of the entire zoo. I made a video of our adventure.

The shirt from Areomax is a one size fits most that closes up in front with velcro. Kids can easily wear these over their clothes and can take them on and off quickly. Having the zookeeper outfit on really got Eva into the role of pretending to be a zookeeper. She often takes us around the zoo on a tour and tells us things about each animal. When she is old enough we will send her to classes at the zoo so that she can learn more about each of the animals there.

I like the bright colorful design of this zookeeper outfit. It has fun details. There are some keys on the shirt and a whistle and more. On the way to the zoo Eva told me what each of the keys on her shirt did. The details on the shirt added to the adventure of the afternoon. I think that this will be something that Eva is going to want to make sure to wear on each trip that we take to the zoo in the future.

There are a bunch of other Aeromax My 1st Career Gear to choose from as well and playing dress up and imagination is so important to the development of being a child. I know that Andrew will also get some use out of the Zookeeper shirt and might even want to try out some of the others like the Pit Crew, Conductor or Builder shirts. Here is a Press release detailing a bit more about the four new shirts that Areomax is offering this season.

2013 Line Of Authentic Looking Outfits Let Kids ‘Try On’ A Career
Lake Barrington, IL (February 27, 2013) – Grownups may be amazed in 2013 when preschoolers have a ready-made answer to that inevitable question, what do you want to be when you grow up? Thanks to Aeromax, award-winning makers of authentic looking My 1st Career Gear for tykes 3 to 5 years old, answers like “zookeeper” and “train conductor” and “builder” might have something to do with what’s in
their closet. Because each year since 1997 Aeromax has happily launched something fresh that sparks young minds. This season it’s four snappy shirts that pull on easily over street clothes yet make a huge imprint.

Like walking in someone’s shoes, donning a realistic looking safari hat and zoo keeper shirt makes kids feel like a real zookeeper. The sharp red, black and white pit crew jersey looks just like the NASCAR fellas on TV. The bright yellow construction hat and tool belt details on the safety vest will look familiar to anyone passing a builder on a construction site. And train commuters will have their tickets ready when they see youngsters wearing the well-detailed adorable train conductor vest and hat loaded with train-related artwork.

Each detailed My 1st Career Gear shirt slips on easily and fastens at the front with a simple hook and loop closure. One size fits most tots ages 3 to 5. Even at this young age, kids can put
on the gear by themselves.

The My 1st Career Gear line now totals a dozen different outfits. Look for these four new outfits in stores after March 2013:

My 1st Career Gear Zookeeper • $13.95
With a parrot peeking out of the top pocket, this captivating career gear will have youngsters giving a caring eye to every squirrel, bird, cat and dog in the neighborhood. Arm patches and pocket squares illustrating various roles of the zookeeper keep children’s imaginations raring day after day with new furry or feathered adventures. Matching green safari hat, sold separately,
completes the look.

My 1st Career Gear Pit Crew • $13.95
Kids will quickly learn the lingo from wrench to car jack when wearing this nifty jersey with a checkered flag on one shoulder and a pit crew patch on the other. A personalized name tag slips into the pocket so everyone grabs the right shirt in a hurry since you’ll never know when a car needs your attention. Matching race cap makes the look official and is sold separately.

My 1st Career Gear Builder • $13.95
Every house needs repairs and this little builder vest gets youngsters thinking about measuring, cutting and fixing. The bright yellow top with orange stripes looks just like the crew on a construction job. Aeromax adds little details like a tool belt, pencil and name badge that makes kids feel special. A matching yellow construction helmet, sold separately, adds to the illusion.

My 1st Career Gear Train Conductor • $13.95
All aboard! Little conductors will check their pretend pocket watches and punch everyone’s ticket as the train makes its scheduled stops. Among the train conductor’s vest details are a
sharp white shirt with red tie and “brass” buttons. The blue conductor’s cap, sold separately, has gold trim.

Currently online and on store shelves are two adorable and affordable My 1st Career Gear outfits just introduced in October 2012:
