No more peek-a-boo panties



Action_shorts300_2 Hey, this is good to know. Smarty Pants Kids' Boutique will sell Monkeybar Buddies at MOSI's Back to School Health and Safety Fair this weekend.

They're kind of like stretchy bike shorts for girls to wear under skirts and dresses so they don't show off their Dora panties on the playground. Of course, girls could wear plain ol' shorts, but those are bulky and, you know, not cool.

All colors of Monkeybar Buddies will be available for $16 at the fair, as well as at the trendy shop at 1548 S Dale Mabry Highway in Tampa. Or go online at

The fair is 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and features resources, retailers, afterschool programs, tutors and more. Admission is $10 and includes arts and crafts, face painting and live entertainment, plus Museum of Science and Industry exhibits. Kids under 2 and MOSI members get in free. For more, go to
