For babies and toddler, the smocked smocked bubble is one of the cutest clothing outfit that you can dress your child in. The bubble is a one piece outfit that normally snaps at the crotch for easy diapering. The bubble has soft elastic leg openings that allow my child to move and play comfortably which is so important.
Some bubbles have appliqued designs and others are smocked like the one in the picture.
The bubble can be for girls or/and boys. Some are made specifically for girls and some more so for boys.
