Washington is so excited to meet giant panda cub Bao Bao in person. After months of hype and an Instagram selfie video of Bao Bao — she's so tech-savvy — this Saturday is the day the giant panda house at the Smithsonian National Zoo re-opens to the public. The Zoo has extended the giant panda house hours from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday through Monday to accommodate the crowds, they've set up a special Panda Boutique online that's full of panda-themed items. To help give Bao Bao a warm welcome to our city, we combed through the National Zoo's online shop and the Internet in general to find the best panda merchandise around. Turns out pandas are very in right now. Black and white is on trend, after all. We found images of pandas on crop tops, toothbrush holders, boxer briefs, and more. So much more. Panda fiends might need to get out their credit cards now.
