Petit Bateau the French clothing brand known for comfort and quality has a fabulous new season range of clothing for kids and we couldn’t wait to try it out. The softness of their cotton clothing is like no other which is really important for me as my little boy has particularly sensitive skin. The clothes we tried out are all well cut and super soft which is what the kids want, they just want to be comfortable and have the flexibility which these clothes allow.
Miss M tried out a couple of long sleeved t-shirts and particularly loved the Breton top with a pair of eyes peeking above the stripes. It’s perfect for everyday wear and I can see this being one of her favourites over the Autumn/Winter months.
The other top she tried is pale pink with a ‘tres chic’ logo on the front with a metallic rose gold leaf design around it. A pretty top with an Autumnal feel to it and again very soft against the skin.
Mister B tried out these really soft pyjamas with a wild animal motif in the centre of the top. He loved the design spotting the various animals, zebra, giraffe, rhino and tiger and the combination of colours suited him. Being really soft means they are really comfortable at bedtime and don’t irritate his delicate skin.
I’ve been very impressed with the softness of the cotton used in the Petit Bateau clothing and it’s perfect for children. The children love the clothes too, which makes this a great go to brand for casual comfortable clothes with a lasting quality.
When it comes to looking for high quality, great looking products for children and babies, there are some great brands out there that really care and use the best materials to produce their goods. I have been lucky to try some for myself over the last week and I have to say they are all fantastic and I’ve discovered some great brands that I hadn’t tried before but wouldn’t hesitate to go back to.
First up we have Frugi, which although I had heard of, had not actually seen any of their clothes first hand. I have to say, the quality of them is second to none, all being 100% organic cotton and quite literally the softest, thickest cotton in children’s clothes I have seen in a while. You can also tell from the cut and finish that these are well made and I couldn’t wait to fit my children into some of the new pieces from their Summer collection.
Mister B had a stripey t-shirt to try out and thought the applique design of a seagull listening to his headphones with his backwards cap on rather amusing. Miss M had a playsuit, which is right up her street for her style.
Both children simply loved their outfits, they are so comfortable and I must say a really good size for their ages. Normally we need to go a size up, but these are a generous cut and being so soft, are so easy to wear against their skin. I have been very impressed with Frugi and will definitely be checking out future seasons with them.
Belle & Boois simply the most gorgeously branded homeware goods for kids that I have seen in a while, with a unique, old fashioned storybook style that reminds me of my childhood. The collection centres on a girl called Belle and her bunny friend boo as well as many other characters suitable for both boys and girls. We received some products featuring Belle and I just adore them. They have a retro feel and are made to a really high quality, making them ideal for beautiful gifts. From their stationery ranges we had a writing pad, shopping list and set of notebooks. They are all lovely to write on with a cute design in each corner. The set of notebooks features a different picture on each cover.
This framed print is so cute and will look lovely on Miss M’s new bedroom wall. It’s a classic piece of wall art that looks timeless and suits a young girl’s room perfectly. Belle & Boo covers a large range of items such as cute kitchen items for girls, bedding, party pieces and also some rather lovely pirate themed items too – well worth checking out for that special gift!
The Piupia polo top for babies/toddlers is made from organic cotton so is super soft, just what you want to put on to little ones skin. The top is well made, a really good cut and features buttons down from the top to help get on and off easily. The pattern is modern on a neutral background so will fairly much go with anything and being unisex is great too.
Cheeky Chompersfeatures a rather fine array of teething accessories, in fact some rather clever ideas such as the Neckerchew. All the fabrics look gorgeous and comfortable to wear at the same time. We received the Chewy the Hippo teether who I have so say is rather charming. He’s a really good size for grabbing onto and has a soft latex body for chewing away at. He also squeaks if you give him a squeeze. He also has a rather lovely velcro strap to attach him to wherever needs be, car seat, pushchair etc.
Kokoso baby is a multipurpose moisturiser made from 100% natural and organic coconut oil. It really is a high quality product to help soothe and protect baby skin. The product itself is quite a solid product but once warmed between your fingers it softens and melts ready to be absorbed straight into the skin to work it’s magic. Perfect for sore bottoms, baby massage, dry skin and much more this is definitely worth a try.
All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received the product in order to write an honest review.
