Lamaloli – Clothes that Kids love

If you are looking for fun and affordable children’s clothes that are perfect for play and everyday wear, then I would definitely suggest you take a look at the Lamaloli Website. LamaLoLi.com is the online-shop selling branded clothing for boys and girls who love Disney, Minions, Star Wars and basically every other super hero or Princess under the sun. The clothes are fantastic quality, come in a great range of sizes, and are totally affordable – so important when kids grow out of clothing so quickly.

I was recently challenged by Lamaloli to see just how much I could get for Joe for £40. I must admit that this was a challenge I relished, but decided not to limit it just to Joe. My niece Renee is Frozen crazy and Lamololi has a great range of products dedicated to this particular Disney favourite, so I chose a couple of pieces for her. Unfortunately Renee is tiny for her age, so they may not fit for a little while, but the pieces were in the sale and far too good to miss. I have detailed them below.

But now onto Joe. His current obsessions are Minions, so I was able to chose him some great pjs and a cool t-shirt from this range. We used loose cotton tea-shirts for when Joe does his karate practice, and these were really useful for this.  The Pyjamas were a great summer buy, short sleeved and with shorts rather than trousers,  making them great for sticky evenings.

We also chose a great Star Wars t-shirt emblazoned with Darth Vader. For some reason Joe loves the Star Wars bad guys far more than the goodies so this was a good choice, and again, this has been something Joe wears to his karate, but would also be perfect with shorts or jeans.

We completed our choices with some Phineas and Ferb long sleeved pyjamas and a pack of Skylanders pants. This made our total just over £40 for three pairs of pyjamas, 2 short sleeved t-shirts, I long sleeved top and 2 pairs of pants. I think this is amazing value for good quality products, especially as you can also get free delivery on all orders over £20.

Lamaloli has products that kids will love, and prices that parents will appreciate. Definitely worth a look.

Check out the kids selection at House of Fraser

When I think about House of Fraser, a great place to buy quality children’s clothes isn’t the image that immediately springs to mind. A fabulous beauty hall – yes. One of my favourite clothing collections from Biba – definitely. Lovely and unusual items for the home – absolutely. But kids clothing for Joe, not at all. I can honestly say I wasn’t even sure that they did children’s clothing. But I was wrong – House of Fraser has a great, and extensive range of kids clothes that offers designer brands, great quality own brands and lots of cool pieces you can’t find anywhere else.

I was given a budget of £30 and asked to select an outfit for Joe. It didn’t really sound that much to spend at House of Fraser and I was unsure that I would find anything. But the phase pleasantly surprised is the one that springs to mind as there were lots of things that I liked, and could afford from the budget. My eyes were instantly drawn to the Fabric Flavours selection – a retro style brand that takes iconic cartoon characters, movie and comic book heroes and cult movies and puts them on -shirts, hooded jackets, pyjamas and baby sleepsuits. With Joe being a huge Star Wars fan, I selected an Empire Strikes Back t-shirt that is identical to one his daddy wore in the early 1980s.

This t-shirt is a classic, original design that is from the time of the original film release. This film is one of the first ones I went to the cinema to see with my dad, so it is an extra special design, as Joe now loves the film too.  The thick red cotton, cute label on the sleeve, and decent sizing makes this a great choice.

I teamed Joe’s t-shirt with a pair of jeans from the brand Little Criminal. Joe has really long legs so we sized up to the 7-8 years and used the waist adjusters to adjust the waistband. These are a great pair of dark wash denim jeans, straight legged, perfect for every day work and play rather than as a pair to keep for ‘Sunday best’. We decided to put the jeans through their paces at a local park, which was rather muddy due to heavy rain, so we could see how well they washed and kept their colour, and also how comfortable they are for little boys rough and tumble play. They came through with flying colours. They have washed really well and Joe has since worn them again – he says they are comfortable and they get his vote.

House of Fraser is definitely worth a look for cool children’s clothing that is a little bit different from what you can find on the high street. I was really happy with Joe’s choices, and I think he looks super cute in them.
