Kristin, age 3 as Rainbow Brite
When I was born Rainbow Brite was all the rage (now you can guess my age!) My dad thought I looked like her, orange hair and all, and he lovingly nicknamed me “Rainbow Brite.” To this day he still calls me Rainbow Brite in that affectionate father voice – when he walked me down the aisle at my wedding he said “My Rainbow Brite is all grown up!”
My mom quickly adopted my dad’s nickname for me and decided that for my first true Trick Or Treating adventure she would make me a Rainbow Brite costume. She did an impeccable job! Although I may not look too happy in the picture I can assure you that I LOVED that costume and everything Rainbow Brite – from my sheets, to my wallpaper and especially my prized doll. I believe my mom was able to squeeze me into my ‘perfect costume’ for two years!
For another le•top costume idea try sweet ‘Sophie the poodle’. Keira models the soft pink faux fur coverall with a hood and barking sound.

As a child I remember seeing relatives or friends after a long absence, and the first thing they would say would be “You’ve grown so much!” I know that every parent sees their children, knows they are growing, but rarely thinks about just how much they have grown…until someone with ‘fresh’ eyes calls attention to their transformation into ‘big kids!’
Here at Le Top we have watched so many children “grow up Le Top” – and the evidence is right in front of us – because we have walls filled with photos of ‘Le Top past’ – modeled by children that have now grown up so much! As you walk down the hallway of Le Top it is like a walk through time…
Nicholas and Dylan – our National Sales Manager’s sons – are represented from tiny babies until they were just too big for the clothes! It is really fun to see them ‘grow up’ in front of the camera – and at the same time see the evolution of our fabulous le•top clothing! Nicholas and Dylan are now 11 and 10 years old – but I think they love the fact that their ‘baby pictures’ are poster size! Otto – my oldest grandson – made the sad transition OUT of le•top this year. Although our ‘little prince’ did his last photo shoot for the fall season (a real pro!) we are lucky to have his understudy ready to step in…Wade, his younger brother!
Robyn’s two girls, Kira and Alyssa, have also been involved in the le•top photo shoots from early in their lives. Teeny tiny nine year old Kira may still be able to fit into a 6X, but definitely looks her age… so we have called in her very cute replacement – little sister Alyssa – to be the next ‘star.’
It has, and will continue to be, really fun to watch the little ones grow…and to be remembered with great photos of Le Top ‘outfits past.’ One thing is for certain…we love our little ‘rogues gallery!’
