Express big Chi-town love in little ways: Land of Nod Chicago Onsie

So Land of Nod may be a national store, but their level of community involvement makes them feel anything but. Their 100% organic, gender-neutral “Maptote One-Piece" shows an illustrated Chicago created by hand using a silk-screen process with water-based ink. It's a sweet gift for your little one or any lover of Chicago toting around a babe.
