Tanuki Teapot Graphic Tee


The tanuki is a popular raccoon-dog creature in Japanese folklore. It is said that as they grow up, tanukis are able to shift shapes. This tee tells the story of "The Furry Legged Teapot" is about a tanuki who turned himself into a teapot. A series of events makes him unable to turn back, and he could only get a few of his legs out – so he was a teapot with furry legs. He missed his family and no one was nice to him. But the emperor’s grandson was kind to him, which turned the teapot back into a tanuki. He returned home and realized he needed the love and support of his family.

I usually buy dresses from Tea, since I feel like they're a better value, but I am so happy with this shirt. It is the CUTEST and with Tea's usual softness. My girl picks it every day it's in the drawer and it looks great with the purple sparkle dot pants. Even Great-Grammy was marveling at the adorableness. And of course we read the fairy tale on the back, which adds a special touch.

I bought this t-shirt in different sizes for a group of girl cousins. Everyone looked adorable in the purple colors! The mothers have reported to me that the clothing washed well. We can't wait to take a family photo!

Super cute!

Totally love it! The style and material stand out (so tea quality). It runs true to size and washed great.

Bought it with pants shown in the picture .. and tada.. we have a easy super cute outfit !!
