Zappos Adaptive and PBS Kids teamed up for a collection of cute kids' clothes that avoid frustrating elements like buttons and zippers

Zappos Adaptive, a division of the popular online shoe and apparel retailer, has partnered with PBS Kids to launch a line of clothing aimed at addressing the needs of children on the autism spectrum. Tasks people often take for granted—such as buttoning a shirt or zipping up a pair of pants—can be a daunting challenge for autistic children. The new clothing line is designed to minimize those obstacles, by offering gender-neutral, button-free, reversible clothing that makes it easier for children to dress themselves. The clothes are available in bright colors that feature dinosaurs, oceans, airplanes or rainforests.

Priced at $26 to $32, the clothes are available in sizes ranging from 18 months to 6 years old. PBS plans to use its net proceeds from the joint venture to further support PBS Kids and its ongoing mission to empower children.
