Funzee is a relative newcomer to the USA. It’s an online retailer which designs and manufactures adult onesie sleepsuits, footed pajamas, and other fun garments for lounging around in. The company is UK based and, unsurprisingly, its biggest markets are in Europe. But the founder of Funzee explained to us, “The idea for Funzees started in 2007. I was looking to buy an adult onesie as an amusing present for my son, who’s a big fan of hospital comedy “Scrubs”. There’s a great episode where JD is wearing a onesie to bed and is then forcibly taken out to a bar by his mentor, Dr. Cox, while still wearing his “jammies”. We found the concept so funny that I began looking for an adult onesie for my student son, but at that time the only ones available were from the USA and wanted to charge about $30 for delivery alone. So I decided to create my own designs for the UK market.”
Now funzee has started selling its products in the USA with a website targeted at US buyers and a warehouse in Kansas City from where orders can be rapidly despatched to any part of the country. So far funzee have started with a selected range of pajama suit products and they are carefully analysing feedback to see if the US market prefers different things and will adjust the product range accordingly. Most existing US suppliers seem to produce footed pajamas and usually in polyester. Funzee have found that given a choice buyers would often prefer the natural and clean feel of cotton products and would also prefer the option of matching socks rather than integral feet which easily get dirty and smelly. Funzee offer 100% cotton suits from only $32.95.
In Europe, buyers are usually college students who like these fun versatile products and there is both a summer market – wearing to parties and festivals – and a winter market for when you need something warm and cozy to snuggle down in. The peak buying time is just before Christmas as these garments make great gifts. Funzee are always on the look-out for new ideas so if there is a design or color combination that you think would work, feed back to funzee via their website or Facebook and they may just produce it for you. However, funzee will always stay true to their fun roots as a spokesman says, “we are not producing designer fashion items but if you want a spandex full body suit, or a donkey onesie then funzee probably have it scheduled in the pipeline.”
