I see London, I see France...Summer skirts and gymnastic-loving lil girls have been taunted about their undergarments throughout history. If only the beautiful bloomers and fun diaper covers that looked so cute on their tushes as tots worked for older kids too.

Mamas looking for a way to avoid the unnecessary schoolyard antics will consider some of the short-like underwear covers available. Like Monkey Bar Buddies, the fun and fanciful designs of Francie Pants might encourage your adventure-seeker to hang onto the jungle gym for a few more minutes. Each box comes with a little paper doll sporting the covers and encouraging girls to dress them in whatever.
