Unleash Your Inner Animal

Here’s a Grommet you can really sink your teeth into. Mouth Man hoodies reveal animal faces when kids (and grownups) strike just the right pose. The creator is Ross Valory, founding member and bass player for the band Journey. On a break from touring one day, Ross saw his friends’ kids playing shark, making chomping noises as they hugged their shoulders and flapped their elbows up and down, like the jaws of a man-eater. Twenty years later, he had a flashback to that moment and thought how cool it would be if there were shirts that showed a face and a mouth when you put your arms together that way. Ross enlisted fellow Journey member and graphic artist Prairie Prince, and the duo created these hoodies with illustrations of chomping critters. Their shark hoodie (available in kid and adult sizes) features realistic airbrushed jaws and teeth and when you fold your arms across your chest, the image changes to reveal an open-mouthed shark. We’re also offering Mouth Man’s T-Rex hoodies (just for kids). The front of the T-Rex hoodie features the dinosaur standing in front of a field of flames, and there's another open-mouthed T-Rex on the back. And just in time for Halloween, we're excited to try out Mouth Man's brand new skeleton hoodie (in kid and adult sizes). It's perfect for scaring up some fun in the fall. Mouth Man’s animated hoodies were a huge hit at Casey Leathers’ high school. Casey and a bunch of her friends decided they were the perfect accessories for senior activities, and she wrote to tell us about the fun. Don’t Stop Believin’ these hoodies are awesome. We’re forever smitten, Faithfully…

    What if you could do more with clothes than simply wear them? What if clothes could be FUN? Mouth Man hoodies have accomplished just that! Our totally unique, animated hoodie shirts feature colorful designs on the front and instantly transform into an animated animal when the wearer's arms cross over at the elbows, creating a "mouth."

    These shirts come in both child and adult sizes and were created by Ross Valory, bass player of the legendary rock group Journey. They were entirely designed and printed in Mouth Man's office in the San Francisco Bay Area using environmentally-friendly ink and moisture-wicking fabric. We are honored to be featured by the Daily Grommet and please feel free to ask me anything about our shirts and company!

    Hi Crystal! Actually, our original prototypes created by Prairie Prince were airbrushed by hand, but currently our shirts are printed by our in-house designer using dye sublimation, a process that uses heat to transfer the ink onto the fabric. This process actually gasses the ink into the fabric, so it becomes part of the fabric and ensures that the color cannot chip, fade, or peel off. Let me know if you have any more questions!

    I just 'discovered' Grommet a couple of weeks ago and I'm HOOKED! I've never found a site anywhere with as many clever, innovative and just downright FUN ideas as you have. Also, unlike many other sites that may have cute but 'kitschy' products, the items you select to present are not only fun but they're also well-made, quality merchandise. This truly puts you in a league of your own. I'm so glad I follow you on facebook plus subscribe to your daily email notice -- otherwise I might have missed this hilarious 'shark' shirt. I'm ordering one for my 10-year-old grandson right now (I'll get the gecko for my 8-year-old granddaughter).

    Thanks for taking the time and effort to sort through the mountains of merchandise that's out there in order to bring your customers the 'best-of-the-best'. I wondered about how you came up with the name 'Grommet', and I decided it was probably because grommets themselves are a useful, innovative, and attractive solution to a problem (ripping holes) that also happen to be something for which many other uses can be found. Plus, it's fun to say!

    Thanks, Grommet! You ROCK!

Out of our 8 we have 17 children who were born in the 80's. Everyone of them listened to Journey from birth, all are fans and boy do we have some funny stories that relate to Journey. Like my 4 year old son singing: Now I come to you with BROKEN arms!!! We howled! I would love to have of as a gift for my brother who started it all, we are all still faithfull. (size: Men's XL). Another story: same child was learning band names..Ross, and "to Steve's"!! What fun for generations ! GOTTA LOVE JOURNEY !!!

Thus the name. And as a designer, I like how the word looks and sounds. And as a person who wants to change the world, we are doing it one grommet at a time.

    Found Grommet via Chronicle WCVB 5 & look daily forward to what "goodies" you will have for me! Got some great Christmas gifts for hard-to-buy-for's - didn't want anyone else to know about you and blow my cover for great gifts, but soon was forwarding the daily e-mails all over my address book. What a JOURNEY it has been!! So, seriously, is it possible to not bust into a head-bob to "Separate Ways"? Journey is the kind of timeless music that anyone can listen to and like - I will forever be "Faithfully" hooked on Journey AND The Daily Grommet - especially if I win a Gecko shirt! Leave it to someone creative enough to be in one of the best bands ever to come up with such a genius idea! And this earth-nut appreciates the enviro-conscious ink. Great conversation piece poolside (thinking beach cover) or at a summer picnic. Thanks for the opportunity to win one - Journey and Grommet both rock!

    Love these, what fun. Great for the beach and for kids just to use their imagination. "Journey" to life in the ocean. Great gift idea and adults will want them too. I would love to see a Pelican, a dolphin is a favorite and gosh so much more. How fun!

    What is cooler? The tongue-in-cheek shirt design or the fact that the designer is a member of just THE GREATEST BAND OF ALL TIME! Not only did I grow up on Journey's anthems, now my 12 year old daughter is a solid fan as well. Our fave Grommet is the felt trivet that was featured in the winter. Kudos to a great company!

    I've loved Journey forever, it seems. And to see a product created by Ross Valory AND Prairie Prince (loved you when you were in The Tubes!) is just icing on the cake. If my card wasn't already maxed, I'd buy me a few of these - what a great, fun idea! I'm handling health issues that have made me acknowledge how short life really is. As a rather unexpected result of this epiphany, I'm realizing that I want to have fun, be crazy, laugh a lot, work too hard, and maybe travel. These shirts are the "be crazy" and "laugh a lot" portions.

    Thanks, Mr. Valory and Mr. Prince. You rock. In more ways than one.

    Very AWESOME shirts....but in your explanation you say shirts are airbrushed and then that they are done with dye sublimation. Dye sublimation is a printing process where colors are not layed down in the traditional dot matrix. Dye sub clothing is produced by running fabric thru a large format printer. The printer prints your computer image onto the fabric and then the fabric is cut and sewn into a shirt or other item of clothing.

    @Laura Boderck - TrainingSmart: HI Laura :) Niki here from Mouth Man. The sizes are true to the child's age. We have even sizes 2T-14 for children. I always suggest to our customers to choose the size that matches your child's age or to go up a size if you child is between our even sizing numbers. For instance if you have a 7 year old you will want to choose a size 8. If your child is larger than other children their age it is always a safe bet to go up a size :) A little room is always good for kids that are growing like weeds! :)

Mouth Man

Animated Hoodie Shirts

Unleash Your Inner Animal

Here’s a Grommet you can really sink your teeth into. Mouth Man hoodies reveal animal faces when kids (and grownups) strike just the right pose.

The creator is Ross Valory, founding member and bass player for the band Journey. On a break from touring one day, Ross saw his friends’ kids playing shark, making chomping noises as
they hugged their shoulders and flapped their elbows up and down, like the jaws of a man-eater. Twenty years later, he had a flashback to that moment and thought how cool it would be if there were shirts that showed a face and a mouth when you put your arms together that way.

Ross enlisted fellow Journey member and graphic artist Prairie Prince, and the duo created these hoodies with illustrations of chomping critters. Their shark hoodie (available in kid and adult sizes) features realistic airbrushed jaws and teeth and when you fold your arms across your chest, the image changes to reveal an open-mouthed shark. We’re also offering Mouth Man’s T-Rex hoodies (just for kids). The front of the T-Rex hoodie features the dinosaur standing in front of a field of flames, and there's another open-mouthed T-Rex on the back.

And just in time for Halloween, we're excited to try out Mouth Man's brand new skeleton hoodie (in kid and adult sizes). It's perfect for scaring up some fun in the fall.

Mouth Man’s animated hoodies were a huge hit at Casey Leathers’ high school. Casey and a bunch of her friends decided they were the perfect accessories for senior activities, and she wrote to tell us about the fun. Don’t Stop Believin’ these hoodies are awesome. We’re forever smitten, Faithfully…

    What if you could do more with clothes than simply wear them? What if clothes could be FUN? Mouth Man hoodies have accomplished just that! Our totally unique, animated hoodie shirts feature colorful designs on the front and instantly transform into an animated animal when the wearer's arms cross over at the elbows, creating a "mouth."

    These shirts come in both child and adult sizes and were created by Ross Valory, bass player of the legendary rock group Journey. They were entirely designed and printed in Mouth Man's office in the San Francisco Bay Area using environmentally-friendly ink and moisture-wicking fabric. We are honored to be featured by the Daily Grommet and please feel free to ask me anything about our shirts and company!

    Hi Crystal! Actually, our original prototypes created by Prairie Prince were airbrushed by hand, but currently our shirts are printed by our in-house designer using dye sublimation, a process that uses heat to transfer the ink onto the fabric. This process actually gasses the ink into the fabric, so it becomes part of the fabric and ensures that the color cannot chip, fade, or peel off. Let me know if you have any more questions!

    I just 'discovered' Grommet a couple of weeks ago and I'm HOOKED! I've never found a site anywhere with as many clever, innovative and just downright FUN ideas as you have. Also, unlike many other sites that may have cute but 'kitschy' products, the items you select to present are not only fun but they're also well-made, quality merchandise. This truly puts you in a league of your own. I'm so glad I follow you on facebook plus subscribe to your daily email notice -- otherwise I might have missed this hilarious 'shark' shirt. I'm ordering one for my 10-year-old grandson right now (I'll get the gecko for my 8-year-old granddaughter).

    Thanks for taking the time and effort to sort through the mountains of merchandise that's out there in order to bring your customers the 'best-of-the-best'. I wondered about how you came up with the name 'Grommet', and I decided it was probably because grommets themselves are a useful, innovative, and attractive solution to a problem (ripping holes) that also happen to be something for which many other uses can be found. Plus, it's fun to say!

    Thanks, Grommet! You ROCK!

    OH MY GOSH, PLEASE LET ME BE THE WINNER OF THIS GROMMET. I am from a family of 8 who grew up listening and turning each other on to JOURNEY! Steve Perry...WHAT A VOICE. Out of our 8 we have 17 children who were born in the 80's. Everyone of them listened to Journey from birth, all are fans and boy do we have some funny stories that relate to Journey. Like my 4 year old son singing: Now I come to you with BROKEN arms!!! We howled! I would love to have of as a gift for my brother who started it all, we are all still faithfull. (size: Men's XL). Another story: same child was learning band names..Ross, and "to Steve's"!! What fun for generations ! GOTTA LOVE JOURNEY !!!

    Found Grommet via Chronicle WCVB 5 & look daily forward to what "goodies" you will have for me! Got some great Christmas gifts for hard-to-buy-for's - didn't want anyone else to know about you and blow my cover for great gifts, but soon was forwarding the daily e-mails all over my address book. What a JOURNEY it has been!! So, seriously, is it possible to not bust into a head-bob to "Separate Ways"? Journey is the kind of timeless music that anyone can listen to and like - I will forever be "Faithfully" hooked on Journey AND The Daily Grommet - especially if I win a Gecko shirt! Leave it to someone creative enough to be in one of the best bands ever to come up with such a genius idea! And this earth-nut appreciates the enviro-conscious ink. Great conversation piece poolside (thinking beach cover) or at a summer picnic. Thanks for the opportunity to win one - Journey and Grommet both rock!

Not only did I grow up on Journey's anthems, now my 12 year old daughter is a solid fan as well. Our fave Grommet is the felt trivet that was featured in the winter. Kudos to a great company!

    I've loved Journey forever, it seems. And to see a product created by Ross Valory AND Prairie Prince (loved you when you were in The Tubes!) is just icing on the cake. If my card wasn't already maxed, I'd buy me a few of these - what a great, fun idea! I'm handling health issues that have made me acknowledge how short life really is. As a rather unexpected result of this epiphany, I'm realizing that I want to have fun, be crazy, laugh a lot, work too hard, and maybe travel. These shirts are the "be crazy" and "laugh a lot" portions.

    Thanks, Mr. Valory and Mr. Prince. You rock. In more ways than one.

    Very AWESOME shirts....but in your explanation you say shirts are airbrushed and then that they are done with dye sublimation. Dye sublimation is a printing process where colors are not layed down in the traditional dot matrix. Dye sub clothing is produced by running fabric thru a large format printer. The printer prints your computer image onto the fabric and then the fabric is cut and sewn into a shirt or other item of clothing.

    @Laura Boderck - TrainingSmart: HI Laura :) Niki here from Mouth Man. The sizes are true to the child's age. We have even sizes 2T-14 for children. I always suggest to our customers to choose the size that matches your child's age or to go up a size if you child is between our even sizing numbers. For instance if you have a 7 year old you will want to choose a size 8. If your child is larger than other children their age it is always a safe bet to go up a size :) A little room is always good for kids that are growing like weeds! :)
