It's sad, but I do think that he's right. Other kids won't get it as well and may very well laugh at him.

Part of it may just be because they are so close in age and that is one way they like to differentiate?
I love the Tink pjs. He can still express his inner Tink in a safe place until his peers grow up enough to understand.
