You’ll find many famous celebrities donning Logan T Shirts on the red carpet and making a splash wherever they go. It is no wonder this shirt has become so popular with kids and adults alike. One look at Jacob Lofland with his infamous “Chicks from the East” tee shirt will tell you why this tee shirt design has become so popular.
Back in the days, America was a country built of cowboys and Indians and superheroes. But it was also dotted with sweatshops where children were made to work long hours for little pay. We have since abolished slavery and built better economic policies that are in place to help kids achieve success and dream of going to college. But one thing hasn’t changed; our kids still labor tirelessly day in and day out for little pay.
One day, a young man from Australia visited Seattle as part of a field trip. While there, he met and became acquainted with Seattle’s International Student coordinator for the Northwest Youth Leadership Council (IYLCC) and his work ethic immediately caught his eye. He informed his teacher of his dream to be a professional puppeteer and went on to complete two years of intensive instruction in puppetry after completing his second degree. Two days later, upon graduating, he was the very first openly gay man to be employed by the IYLCC in over twenty years.
If you have ever been to the Seattle Space Needle or marvel at the world’s largest Ferris wheel, you have no doubt met Seattle’s beloved Pugs. These gentle giant Pug dogs originated from Australia but have spent the last three centuries washing out dingy boats and amassing an incredible collection of more than two-thousand costumes. Their owners’ favorite is none other than the original puppet, Logan T Shirt Kids. Their life savings and hard work are invested not only in creating and presenting the most original puppet show possible, but in funding a wide variety of events that entertain kids and adults alike. And they have done it time and again, using the same characters and fun music that made them famous.
Over the years, the IOLCC has helped create many other well-known kids’ programs such as the Great Pumpkin Games and Camp Snoopy Fun. In fact, this organization would be an ideal partner to take a young child to a real world adventure and educational experience. With their wealth of experience and love of performing, parents and families have always welcomed the original, off-the-wall characters of these irreverent Sesame Street puppets into their homes, schools and day care. It seems that the original, jerky puppet Smiley Face always has a time or place in almost every kid’s life.
These days, many children have a long list of places and things that they love. And who can blame them? With the original Sesame Street puppets, people can take them almost anywhere they like, and the world around them becomes less recognizable. Who would have thought that a little blue square with a green face could become a worldwide icon? And perhaps nothing has had a greater impact on our children than the world famous, crazy, goofy, totally crazy world of Sesame Street. From their very first appearance over 30 years ago, Smiley Face and his fellow puppets have delighted audiences of all ages, and have provided many with countless hours of fond memories of good old boy days gone by.
