Mouth Man unleashes totally unique kids clothing

Mouth Man, LLC, is proud to announce the launch of its new kids clothing line. Once kids put on Mouth Man hoodies, the shirts instantly transform into animated animals. The whole idea is the brainchild of Ross Valory, founder of the rock band Journey.

"The idea originated many years ago while the band was on tour. I was visiting friends in Arizona, drinking coffee and hanging out when my friend's kids came tearing into the room doing something they referred to as the 'JAWS' -- arms crossed one over the other, elbows pointed front, opening and closing in a chopping fashion, punctuated of course, by monster noises. I thought it was really cute," said Valory.

Cut to 20 years later when Valory hugged himself in the same fashion his friend's kids did all those years ago and the memory popped into his head. "Wouldn't it be cool if there was a shirt with a graphic on the sleeves that would form a face with a mouth that would open and close when you put your arms together?" he thought.

That was the lightbulb moment for Ross Valory and "Mouth Man" LLC was conceived.

Valory quickly called his friend and fellow Journey founding member Prairie Prince, who also happens to be a world class graphic artist. Prince's remarkable custom airbrushed pieces worked perfectly for creating the concept for the new line of kids clothing. Now, hoodies are printed in house on Mouth Man's large format printers and transferred onto recycled fabrics through their heat press, otherwise known as dye sublimation.

Mouth Man animated hoodies are now available at the company's newly launched website. Kids can transform into geckos, sharks, raptors, frogs, dogs, cobras, gators, tigers and orcas. Simpsons hoodies are also available in surfing and holiday themes.

"We are hoping to capture the attention of college and sports apparel manufacturers. Team mascots would work perfectly with the Mouth Man concept," says Mark Sandoval of Mouth Man LLC. "The hoodies are completely customizable, so people can work with Mouth Man designers to make their visions come true."

In 2009, Mouth Man opened its satellite office in Pacheco, California and is now surging into the exciting realm of kids clothing and beyond. Their motto: "Give yourself a hug and have your own Mouth Man moment."
