KinderStuff – Rethinking Baby Fashion {Giveaway!}

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

I love when a company reaches out with a brand and an idea I’m happy to support – and it doesn’t hurt when my kids love their product too.

KinderStuff is the kind of company you can stand up a cheer for. They make organic, eco-friendly and socially conscious kids’ clothes in America and Germany. Then they cut out the middleman and sell them straight to you to keep the costs down – so you don’t have to take out a second mortgage to dress your kids in a way you can feel good about.

On top of selling super-cute, fashionable clothes, they’re working to solve one of the most frustrating kids’ clothes problems – they grow out of them so fast! From KinderStuff:

Kids grow, clothes don’t. Some say that children outgrow almost 1,500 articles of clothing in their first 18 years. That’s a problem!

With KinderStuff, every item you purchase gets you a discount in the future. When the clothes no longer fit, send them back and get a discount coupon for your next purchase. We even pay for the shipping back to us! Returned clothing is then donated to charity, recycled, or resold as hand-me-down on our website. All this doesn’t only benefit you, but society as a whole.

KinderStuff just launched at the beginning of the month and right now they’ve got designs for babies and toddlers up to size 24 months but they’ll be rolling out new designs and products up to size six years over the next few months. I can’t wait to see what they come up with for 4 year olds (and if you have a good idea, they’d love to hear from you!)

Caroline has worn her Stella shirt four times since we got it (which means it’s been washed 3 times) and it still looks great. The cotton is thick and obviously very high quality. There wasn’t any significant shrinking or fading. The colors are still bright and the “oonie-corn” is still the cutest. I’m very impressed.

KinderStuff is a new company in the US and they would really love your support on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. I was sent the Stella shirt to review but no compensation was received and all opinions are my own.

What Caroline Wore

Monday, February 6th, 2012

Now that she’s a TINY PERSON instead of just an adorable lump I can dress up like a doll I don’t put Caroline in quite so many delicate vintage dresses – but that doesn’t mean she’s any less fashionable. I can’t even tell you how much more fun dressing a girl is than dressing a boy – especially a toddler boy who thinks dinosaurs and helicopters are the height of fashion. With the HUGE number of hand-me-downs (hmd) we’ve received, Caroline’s wardrobe is a zillion times better than mine. She isn’t the hugest fan of clothes in general – I think they restrict her ability to roundhouse kick me in the face – and by 6 pm she’s usually half naked. But even just for our everyday mall-errands-home activities I try to make sure she’s at least out of her PJ’s. Here’s what Caroline wore this week:
