The Discovery Collection was created for ages 1 up through 12 years. The easy color coordination within the set allows the caregiver to easily grab the correct size. The 100 percent polyester knit is soft and breathable, built for institutional laundering, and meets all federal flammability regulations for children’s sleepwear.

“The Discovery prints selected by our in-house designer, Denise Formisano, includes Northern Lights, Galileo Guardians, Raining Cats and Dogs, and Stars. All Discovery Comfort Knit fabrication was selected to be comfortable while meeting hospital and institutional laundry standards. The polyester construction is durable for longevity, and also allows for faster drying time in the laundry,” he added.
