Show Your CPD Support with Police Clothes for Kids
At one point or another during childhood, many kids dream of becoming a police officer. Sometimes they pursue those dreams into adulthood and make a career of that childhood passion. Other children love police officers because they know one and are inspired by that person’s hard work and commitment to the community: perhaps it’s a parent, sibling, aunt or uncle, or a good family friend. In any case, police clothes for kids give them the chance to feel like an officer or show their love for the department and the people who make it great.
If there’s a police officer in your family, he or she will love seeing your little one dressed in a Chicago Police Department t-shirt. Being an officer is a demanding and often thankless job, and those little gestures of love and support really mean a lot to the people who serve our community. It’s a little reminder of how important their work is, and how much it means to the people they protect and serve.
For the kids who have a second passion, like baseball, football, or hockey, we have unique t-shirts that combine that love for their sport and team with their love for the police department. Not only is it fun to support your own family police officers in that way, but there are lots of sports fans in the department. When you attend games or go about the community between school, sports practice, and errands, you’re sure to see some of them (on duty or off) and their families. You might never meet them directly, but you can imagine how much they appreciate that show of support.
The Chicago Police Department’s vision is that “All Chicagoans are safe, supported, and proud of the Chicago Police Department.” Police clothes for kids are a simple but meaningful way to share that pride and demonstrate that support.
When your children want to role play, police clothes for kids can ignite their imaginations. This t-shirt is printed with a badge, sergeant stripes, and more. The toy riot helmet completes the look. You know how much fun it is for a child to dress up on Halloween. These clothes give them the chance to do it whenever they want.
Furthermore, it’s not only fun: it’s educational. Acting out stories the way children do when they play pretend is vital to healthy development:
“Over the last seventy-five years a number of theorists and researchers have identified the values of such imaginative play as a vital component to the normal development of a child. Systematic research has increasingly demonstrated a series of clear benefits of children’s engagement in pretend games from the ages of about two and one half through ages six or seven. Actual studies have demonstrated cognitive benefits such as increases in language usage including subjunctives, future tenses, and adjectives.”
These clothes and other toys give them the tools they need to create these scenarios and act them out. It brings direction to their role playing and gives them inspiration for new ideas and situations.
Whether your child wants to be a police officer when he or she grows up, or you all simply want to show some love for the officers in your lives, police clothes for kids make great gift ideas for birthdays, holidays, or just because. It becomes not only a gift for a child, but for the officers who may be there to watch him or her open package.
