Baby model search

Tryout to be the next BabyGap  or GapKids model of the year.

2012 is around the corner and with the new year come new casting calls for some of America’s hottest kids brands, Gap, GapKids and BabyGap.

Every year BabyGap and GapKids (Baby Gap & Gap Kids) seem to do a model search. The BabyGap model search is for babies and toddlers while the GapKids model search is for elementary school aged children.

Many of the BabyGap and GapKids audition take place in the fall and this year the was a GapKids open casting call for a Christmas special. The Gap open casting call was held in one of the Gap Kids stores in New York City.

Various stores around the country have casting calls for either BabyGap or GapKids. The winners of the casting call / baby modeling contest are usually used in a certain photoshoot or video for an event that the store is having. Winning the contest, however, does not assure more modeling work for your baby, toddler or child.

The best way to find out about such events is to ask within your local store. Since most events are held in the store, the store employees or management should have some information about whether that store does baby modeling contests and when they think the next BabyGap or
Some more good news for parents who would like to see their children become BabyGap or GapKids Models. The Gap brand including its children’s line are expanding. GapKids tryout will be held.

GapKids and babyGap, two of the most recognized names in children’s apparel, announced plans  for a new collection created for Gap by Diane von Furstenberg. The collection is expected to be available for purchase to customers in March 2012 through GapKids and babyGap stores in almost 30 countries including United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Italy, France, China, Japan and Australia as well as online in 75 countries.

An expansion of the line means more opportunities for more children to model for the apparel brand. The Gap brand has also expanded to many other countries and its popularity in Europe and Asia is increasing.

Baby modeling

The Gap also owns other large brands such as Old Navy, Banana Republic and others. Those other brands such as Old Navy also hire many child models for their catalogs, commercials and promotional materials.When the Gap holds a modeling contests, the brand offers prizes to the winners and normally there are 4 winners. The winners also get to appear in ads and promos in store windows across the country.Last years winners of the kids and baby modeling contest got the following prizes:

  • Featured in the windows of babyGap and GapKids stores nationwide
  • $1,000 Gap GiftCard

Last years contest winners were  Evie, Dylan, Sofia and Keyghan – A boy and girl from 2 different age groups, BabyGap and KidsGap.

Even though other castings have been held by GAP Stores in The U.S., it seems the nationwide baby model search did not happen in 2011. Hopefully 2012 will bring back the contest and choose 4 new winners to splash across the retail stores windows nationwide.

The Gap just opened its Gap Kids Model Contest Today! Check it out here.

    My son will be 2 years old September 2012 and he has been getting compliments everywhere we go since day one. Not only does he have big brown eyes, long girly eyelashes, chubby cheeks and curly brown hair his personality is awesome and he looks good in his clothes. He loves posing for the camera, music and dancing for example. Everyday I am told how cute he is and that he has a face that belongs on TV or magazines. He is my little superstar and I want to share him with the world.

    Eva Salomé is a multiracial, multiethnic four year old with bright brown eyes and long eyelashes that give off a breeze. She has light caramel skin and head full of springy curls that can be sculpted into a number of trendy hair styles. She is bi-lingual in Spanish and English, and has the energy to enjoy activities like gymnastics and swimming. She was recently featured on Washington DC NBC news on a segment on child literacy with Dr. Suess. She truly represents the melting-pot that is America! I believe she would be the perfect representative for the Gap clothing line.

  57. Iliana Sanchez

    Well I have a 3 year old boy, he does wear a lot of baby gap clothing but I really think that anything that he wears stands out really good. I always get compliments on how I dress him and on how handsome he is. Everyone always says that I dress so much like the kids from baby gap. I am willing to go anywhere for my son to be a model. He loves to pose for pictures and he loves to dance “)
    Thank you for your time!

  58. Melinda

    Ok lets be honest here, we all think our kids are adorable. I only dress myself as well as my son in Baby Gap so I figure why not have him model professional for them. We always get complements on how cute he looks in is outfits so why not show it off to the world right? If you have any casting calls located in the San Fransisco area I would love to have him try out. Thank you for your time!
