**This is not a sponsored post. Kids received some funky threads and I got a bag of lollies. These opinions are all my own, not lolly induced**
I have a thing about clothes with cutie pie trucks or pussy cats, or puppies on them.
That thing is that I hate them with a passion.
Many wearable gifts my kids have been given over time didn’t get worn once because I’m
such a snob so discerning. Sorry, but it’s true. Why shouldn’t my kids look funky? Being little doesn’t mean you can’t be stylin’, right?
I don’t spend mega bucks on their wardrobes, not by a long shot. In fact, I often op shop because I’m a tight arse.
When I saw The Kidstore for the first time last year at Miranda, I was chuffed to find a range of kid’s threads that were cool and styley.
Since that initial The Kidstore discovery, I’ve been back there to not only get stuff for my sproglets, but to give as gifts to friends because they’re perfectly priced to make a affordable, yet banging hot present.
I desire kid’s clothes that are comfy, functional is a must, preferably not cost more than a bottle of wine so it doesn’t matter if it gets stained and torn, and it needs to be cool.
I’m not asking too much, am I?
The Kidstore has the kind of gear I would wear if my big ol’ butt could fit in it. Awesome colours, hip prints, and at a price that won’t break the bank. It’s mostly $10-$50, which I reckon is uber fair for the quality.
This stuff is honestly great quality.
When I was recently invited to their summer range launch I was a bit excited, but that’s probably because I don’t get invited to fashion launches often these days. The last one I went to was for Hallican Boodie swimwear and my friend was so drunk she nearly fell off the boat and the whole world saw her undies.
This was not like that. This was just lovely.
The awesome John Barrett, was going to be shooting our kids in The Kidstore’s gear and I was pumped to see him in action. He didn’t disappoint. With his years of experience with kids, and – more notoriously difficult – models, when my two arrived surly and tired, he was down on the floor playing with them and winning smiles in no time.
It was cool because it gave me time to chat to the lovely team behind The Kidstore and learn more about the brand (whilst hoovering the sweet treats they had on offer, but I was not bought off with sugar, I swear).
They’ve sent me through some classic images and they have invited me to run to run a little comp on Facebook.
I’ve loaded my fave of shot from the day and you guys just need to pop over and like it. If my progeny gets the mosts likes, not only do I win a voucher, but also one of you lucky kids will win a $100 voucher to The Kidstore.
