This is such a versatile alpha, especially for birthdays! I have a son and a daughter, so often the alphas feel too gender-specific for me to feel like I can use them for both kids. (I ended up with a pink-loving princess who lives for sparkles and a rough and tumble, construction equipment loving boy.) But this alpha is perfectly neutral and can really be personalized with different fabrics. I can see using this for lots of kids with very different interests and personalities, and the numbers are awesome for birthday shirts.
