JA Baby Talk Romper

Item # 220544.

 JANM Exclusive! 

Designed by Rosie Yasukochi. Japanese isn’t every Japanese American’s first language, but it is surprising how many words persist in baby talk and last a lifetime. These are a few of our staff’s favorites to pass on to future generations. Translation? See below. Printed on (color) 100% cotton. One size (12-18 month).
