Barbie inspired fashion in collaboration with Mango

Barbie has teamed up and collaborated with the Mango fashion chain to create some pop art inspired tops.  It’s a great way for young girls to get into fashion but still have their favourite characters on their clothes.

Miss M opted for the Barbie t-shirt to try out which comes in white, with long sleeves and a pop art image on the front.  The top is soft cotton and comfy, great for the winter months for everyday wear.  She wouldn’t be smiling if she didn’t like it as she can be quite fussy with clothes!

Barbie top MangoI think the Barbie collaboration with Mango is great and young girls will enjoy the clothes.  They are fun and comfortable to wear and young girls will love wearing them.

The Barbie collection is now available from Mango kids shops all across Europe, so why not check it out now!

House of Fraser Children’s Clothes – Review

House of Fraser sell a wide range of branded children’s clothes online, more than I realised as my local store is quite limited in children’s clothes.  Looking online really opened my eyes to the various ranges available and the choice which was generous for both boys and girls.

Having both a boy and a girl, I picked several pieces to try out with each of them.

mangoMiss M went for this MANGO hoodie and jogging trousers.  Sold separately but we opted to get both, they actually proved a major hit with her wearing them all weekend and then made the perfect comfort outfit on the ferry to France with her grandparents this half term.  She found them ultra comfy, soft and easy to wear.

My opinion was that they were soft, well made and lightweight, perfect as a summerwear tracksuit.  The colour was almost nude, a peachy pink colour that complimented Miss M’s skintone and matches other pieces easily.

mango 1It had L.A. West Coast, Surfing Club, Venice West Beach logo on it both on the hoodie and the trousers.  They were ultra comfy as Miss has worn them non stop.  They are a size 9-10 but we always find we need to go up a size or two for Miss M even though we don’t  consider her to be large for her size but she is tall and fits a bigger size.

mango 2I love the label inside the hoodie, to add your name and details to avoid losing it at school or a at a club etc.  Overall we love this tracksuit and with it’s soft, easy to wear texture makes it an everyday staple.


For Mister B, we chose these Minene pyjamas.  They come beautifully packaged in a small chiffon style bag.   I love both the colour and design on these pyjamas, a soft grey with star design on the trousers and airplane on the top.  They are lovely and soft, perfect for a comfy nights sleep.  I really rate the Minene pyjamas for the quality and designs and would definitely purchase them again.  Unfortunately Mister B went a bit camera shy when modelling these for me so I couldn’t get any pics of him in them but they are lovely to wear and having the cuffed bottoms means they don’t hang on the floor and give a better fit.

I think the brands available at House of Fraser are great and always deliver on style and quality, therefore I’d recommend anyone to check them out.  There is a huge offering online and often bargains to be had a sale time!
