(Huffington Post) -- In October 2013, Jennifer Muhm's 4-year-old daughter declared she wanted to be an astronaut for Halloween. But when the mom and daughter flipped through costume catalogs and saw only boys dressed as astronauts, the little girl changed her mind.
Muhm's friend Malorie Catchpole had a similar experience. She was unable to find train underpants for girls, which her toddler daughter had requested for Christmas -- they were only available for little boys.
Muhm and Catchpole took matters into their own hands and launched buddingSTEM, their own line of science-themed clothes for girls. Their hugely successful Kickstarter campaign has raised over $60,000 since its creation in March 2015.
