The Joy of Introducing Wrestling to Kids

As a kid growing up, wrestling was always my favorite thing, especially back in the 80’s and 90’s. There was just something about it I loved. It wasn’t the violence, it was the ridiculous drama. The good guy vs the bad guy. Although that formula barely exists today, there is some magic left in this classic form of entertainment, especially for kids.

Now don’t get me wrong, this isn’t for everyone I can see parents reading this and completely freaking out. Wrestling can still be for kids, you just have to know what to show them, and what not to show them. This is especially true when deciding to attend a live show. I’ll get into that in a bit.

Step 1: The Introduction

My first introduction to wrestling was watching my great grandmother, who barely spoke English, watch Hulk Hogan religiously. I believe she had a poster of him in her home. Today, in the age of endless entertainment, I had to come up with a different strategy. One that was good……reaallllly goooddddd. So for that I obviously chose to have Nacho Libre shown on family movie night.


Nacho Libre is not “woke,” so be prepared for some “cultural appropriation” or any other weird new labels that exist today. That aside, I’m sorry, but it’s a hilarious film with a good story, and a good message. Needless to say, my kid love it.

Step 2: The Live Show

From there we would have little matches after dinner, which she loves. I bought her a Women’s WWE Championship Belt, which she defends all the time. Finally the moment came. WWE Live was coming to our town.

So here is the thing with wrestling. Not all of it is for kids. With an audience base as broad as theirs, they have specific programming that is for kids and isn’t for kids. WWE Raw and Smackdown events are more geared towards adults. WWE Live shows are not.  These are known as “House Shows,” which are not televised.  The crowd is mostly kids, so it’s the perfect event to bring your child to.

Step 3: Splurge

I don’t typically spoil my kid, although my mom thinks we do. On wrestling day, you do. Take your kid out to eat, get a desert, buy a few things from the gift shop.  You only get to do this stuff a few times, make it special.  Before you know it, your kid is going to have her face buried in a cell phone in her room.  Now is the time. Unless your kid is a total shit, they will remember this for a long time and will be happy to have shared that bond with you for the day.

A Gigantic “Thank You”!

This has been an awesome year for The Super Sweet Shirt Co.  I wanted to thank everyone who supported this little underground t-shirt store this year, especially during the holidays.

After I take a little break in January, I will be back with more designs and products to make 2019 even better.

Happy Holidays to all, and to all, a sweet shirt!


Free Shipping November!

This is it! The biggest sale I have all year.  Every November I reward my awesome customers with a huge November sale so that they can gear up for the holidays.  This year its free shipping all November which will save you some dough for sure.

Don’t miss out! Sale is currently going on in my Etsy store, Amazon store, and at our main website (which is the cheapest).

The Super Sweet Shirt Co. on HBO’s “Insecure”.

Occasionally this little underground shirt company hits it big in terms of exposure.  It started off with Mario Lopez holding our AC Slater onesie up on a Tampa morning news show.  That one was awesome as I was a pretty big fan of “Saved By the Bell.” Then our “Are You Afraid of the Dark” tee was featured in a Buzz Feed article for 90’s Nickelodeon “must have” items.  This one was so huge that I had to shut down for a day.  This week we were featured in the Season Finale of “Insecure” on HBO, which is a great show if you have never watched it.  The had requested an overnight delivery of our Bruce Leroy Tee.  I had low expectations of it ever showing up on TV, but to my surprise, it made it!  I had noticed an increase in orders, and sure enough it had made it.



The shirt is currently available at our main site, Etsy Shop, eBay store, and now on Amazon.

The David Tee

New design in all shops this week.  I had the idea to do this years ago but kept putting it off.   This week, I decided to go for it.

This amazing Lost Boys Tee is available for both men and women.

So fly over to our website, or the Etsy, eBay, Amazon stores and pick yourself up one of these bad boys!


New Rushmore Onesie and Tee

The problem with getting busy is that it makes it nearly impossible to put out new designs.  I have been wanting to do a Rushmore design for a while.  The hardest part about coming up with new designs is trying to create something different then the others out there.  There are loads of shirts out there with the Rushmore Academy logo on it, but not many for Latin Club.  I saw a bunch for Bee Keepers Club, but not many for Latin.  Max saved Latin.  This shirt deserved to be made.

Now available at our main site, Etsy Shop, eBay Store, and on Amazon – this shirt or onesie would be a great gift for any Wes Anderson or Bill Murray fan.
