Why is cotton the best choice for baby clothes and toys. May 13 2015

Why is cotton the best choice for baby clothes and toys.

The day has finally come! You have your little bundle of joy in your hands. It is hard not to notice how fragile a newborn baby is and how sensitive their skin is. Everybody wants the best for their children, that's why we strongly recommend buying only cotton clothing for babies.

Since cotton is a natural fabric, you don't have to worry about your baby getting rashes or eczema.

Cotton is very soft by nature and is very gentle on delicate baby skin.

This beautiful fabric is non-allergenic and is a perfect choice for babies who suffer from asthma, because it doesn't release small particles that could trigger an attack.

Cotton is easy to care for.

It can be washed in cold or hot water and can be tumbled dry or dried in the sun.

Cotton is usually not subjected to chemical treatments and finishings. The synthetic products on the other hand are treated with lots of chemicals to give them a soft touch.

I hope you are now convinced that cotton is the best choice for your baby.

Check out our beautiful selection of baby clothes, blankets, bibs and toys and have fun shopping!


Vulli Natural Baby Toys And Sophie Baby Teethers Available Online At Brands For Kids December 07 2014

Sophie The Giraffe and Other Vulli Natural Baby Toys Now Available Online At Brands For Kids.

VULLI

Vulli natural baby toys and Sophie baby teethers can be found in over 50 countries and on all 7 continents. With more than 50 million Sophies already sold, now is a good time to get one for yourself or as a very special gift. But, you don't have to search the globe. Browsing for Sophie and her friends conveniently starts and ends right here online.

What keeps the Sophie baby teether so popular since its creation more than half a century ago? It's the only all-natural, 100% safe rubber teether on the market anywhere in the world. The size and shape is designed to be a perfect fit for a baby's grasp. And, it stimulates all 5 senses from the first few months of age!



* Touch - Sophie and her friends are as soft as a mother's skin and this triggers emotional and physiological responses that are reassuring and calming. Simply holding a Sophie teether is often enough to end a baby's bout of crying.

* Taste - The 100% natural soft rubber is very similar in taste to a regular feeding bottle, delivering a familiar and comforting association.

* Sight - The high contrast visuals provided by the dark polka dots soon develop recognition and familiarity that's soothing.

* Sound - The built-in squeakers stimulate hearing and keep the babies entertained. As an added bonus, the simple relationship of cause and effect is grasped (yes, even at this early age!) as the Sophie toys emit a fun, attention-grabbing whistle when lightly squeezed by wee hands.

* Smell - Hevea natural latex rubber has a very pleasant and distinct scent that makes the Vulli teething toys readily identifiable.

Sophie the Giraffe Gift Box contains the timeless Sophie with the original design. It's still made in the original, traditional 14-step process that transforms the milky sap (liquid latex!) of the Malaysian Hevea trees into an amusing, comforting, natural and much loved teething buddy. The 100% safe, natural rubber teethng giraffe is hand decorated with food paints.

Sophie looks exactly as she did in 1961! She has ears, legs and horns that are perfect chewing surfaces that give babies the option of reaching the gums as far back as the molars. The long legs and neck are easy for little fingers to grip securely. Each Sophie Giraffe is laser-stamped with a unique number on one leg.

The So'Pure Teething Ring is a soft model of Sophie with extra gripping loops for more grasping options. And, Sophie now has a collection of Baby Teether Friends that include Gabin the Bear, Lazare the Cat and Margot the Turtle. They're so adorable, you'll want to collect them all!



And, there are two irresistable collectible cousins now available. Baby Teethers Pie Pink (also Sophie's best friend!) and Chan Blue have shapes that are more slender and rounded, making them ultra-easy for wee ones to hold firmly.

Shop For Babies First Shoes And Toddler Shoes Online At Brands For Kids.Com.Au December 06 2014

Shop For Babies First Shoes And Toddler Shoes Online At Brands For Kids.

Enjoy the convenience of shopping online for babies first shoes and toddler shoes at Brandsforkids.com.au. Selecting the perfect proper footwear for your wee ones doesn't get any easier than this!

It's usually tempting to go for the cute, trendy first walker shoes for babies. Clogs, pointed-toe boots and hard-soled shoes with raised heels might look adorable but they're not the right choice for little ones who are learning to walk. Why? Because they don't give the stability and support that a newbie walker needs.



Once a little one begins to walk, there are two primary reasons for purchasing babies first shoes. The proper footwear will protect the busy, toddling feet from injury. The ideal baby first walker shoes will also be a confidence booster as the right design and materials reduce the risk of falling.

Totsox Baby & Toddler Rubber Soled Socks work double duty as a combination one-piece soft cotton knit, breathable sock with a safety rubber shoe-like sole that securely grips wooden, vinyl and tiled floors indoors. The rubber spikes provide slip-resistant superior traction on outdoor surfaces, as well.



The Totsox rubber spiked soles are flexible and this is an extremely important feature. The normal foot flexes as much as 40 degrees while walking and proper babies first walker shoes and toddler shoes will allow this natural movement for the sake of optimum balance, co-ordination and natural foot development.

Totsox are designed to be practical, comfortable, safe and supportive. Everything about these fun, quirky non slip socks (shoes? socks? shoe-socks!) make them the ideal choice for baby first walker shoes. Even the price! They're a value-packed bargain at $24.95!

When it comes to babies and toddlers, shoes need to be replaced frequently as they're quickly outgrown. Purchasing new shoes every three months or so doesn't have to break the bank. There's no reason to buy ultra-expensive and highly durable toddler shoes; they won't use them long enough to wear them out.

Totsox designs are cute and fun! Picture your little girl or boy toddling around with bright Busy Bee feet or chugging along with Choo Choo Train locomotion! Or, how about a backyard jungle adventure in a Zebra print?

     

Purchase a different design each time a larger size is ordered or stick to the design that your little one likes best. They fit sizes 9 months to 24 months.

Use the letters (L for left - R for right) on the soles of the non slip baby socks as teaching tools. Before you know it, your toddler will be correctly matching the marked sock-shoes to the appropriate feet.



Care is ultra simple. They're machine washable and very fast drying so they're quickly ready for the next toddling adventure.

Browse brandsforkids.com.au online today for your Phthalate-free Totsox babies first shoes and toddler shoes - the safe, affordable and fun baby first walker shoe selection.


Best Christmas gift ideas for babies and little children are at Brands For Kids December 05 2014

The best Christmas gift ideas for babies and little children are at Brands For Kids.

Less than 3 weeks to go before Christmas. It is interesting how your life and your view on certain things changes once you have a child. To see the world through their eyes is an unbelievable gift, probably the biggest we get in our lives. My son is now 3 and half and he couldn't be more excited about the big day approaching. He tries his best to be as well behaved as possible to make sure that Santa won't forget him. He is very modest in his wishes, but knows exactly what he wants. So far he asked for only one present! It is easier to chose which present if you know what your little one wants, but what about the teeny-tiny ones? The ones who can't tell you just yet what they wish for? We put together a list of our favourite things for babies and little children:

 

  1. Apple Park Organic Farm Gift Set - Boxer Dog

Crafted from Certified Organic Cotton and Natural Corn filling - it is a fantastic present for any parent who appreciates organic products.

  1. Mini Raindrop Cushion

This cute little raindrop, with its watercolour blush cheeks will make a lovely addition to any nursery or child's bedroom.

  1. Totsox Babies and Toddler Rubber Soled Socks 

Has your baby just started to walk? Or has he/she already mastered his/her first steps and is already toddling along? Either way, you will love these super cute rubber soled socks, as they are perfect for babies who have just started to walk, as well as for little toddlers up to approximately 2 years of age.

  1. Mayoral Baby Boy Denim Sport Shoes Blue

These little booties are perfect for little feet.  Each pair comes in a box so they are also an ideal present for a new born baby boy to put under the Christmas tree.

  1. Sophie the Giraffe Gift Box

If you have never heard about Sophie the giraffe before, it is definitely time to get one. Sophie has been sold over 50,000,000 times worldwide and is one of the most popular baby toys in the world. Sophie the giraffe is the one and only baby rubber teething toy that is 100% natural! There is no better gift for a new baby for Christmas.

  1. Lazare the Cat

And if you are already lucky enough to have Sophie, then how about her new best friend? Lazare the Cat. Like all Les Folies baby teethers, this new addition from this beautiful French brand, Lazare is the perfect toy to stimulate all of a baby's senses.

But, there are so many more beautiful toys and cloths for babies and children at Brands For Kids, just go ahead and take a look.

Yum, yum, chocolate cupcake! October 27 2014

I know, I know! I really should be writing about something related to baby and children's clothes, online shopping or current spring/summer trends for little people, but, hey, it is Monday and it has been raining all night and all morning. My husband took the car due the terrible weather conditions, so Max and I are stuck at home without any chance to get out. And what could be a better way to spend a rainy morning at home than making some delicious chocolate cupcakes. 

What will you need:

185g butter

125g raw sugar (I used only 80g and it was still nice and sweet)

2 tablespoon golden syrup

250g milk

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

185 g plain flower

  1. Put butter, golden syrup and milk in TM and melt it for 4 min, at 70 degrees, speed 1
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix on speed 5 for 5 seconds. Repeat if necessary. 
  3. Divide butter into 12 cupcakes tins and bake for 16 minutes at 160 degrees.

YUM!!!! All credit for this recipe goes to the Thermomix official recipe community. 

When done, make yourself a cup of tea, give your little one some warm milk and go explore our site. After all we have a beautiful collection of baby and children's gifts and clothes:-)

And don't forget the cupcake!

Girls Tops on Sale @ Brands For Kids October 10 2014

Carter's girls tops on sale @ Brands For Kids

Just finished this collage and realised that having a baby girl would probably cost our family a fortune... Not that boys are cheap, but most of the time Max doesn't care too much about what I dress him in. He instead has fun by running away from me when I am trying to dress him. All a different story with the girls. My little nice, when she was Max's age really appreciated the latest fashion I bought for her. She would put it on immediately and stare at her self in the mirror for quite a while trying to get a look from every possible angle. So funny... Anyway, we have some very special girls tops from Carter's and Fresh on sale for just $9.95. Check them out:

Carter's Girls top "I Love Lemonade"

Carter's Girls top "Love"

Fresh Girls Top "Cherries"

Have fun shopping!

Ralph Lauren Baby and Children's Clothes Are Winners in Every Category September 20 2014

Ralph Lauren baby and children's clothes are winners in every category in the ever-evolving world of fashion. Today, selecting the right clothing for little ones is just as important as making smart wardrobe choices for adults. It all starts by weighing up several brand components including style, comfort, quality, durability and value.

The Ralph Lauren brand brings it all together, seamlessly. This famous and fabulous designer learned about fashion from the ground up. Starting his own line of neckties that were made from discarded material, he soared to the top by paying close attention to the smallest of details while striving to create his own unique, readily-identifiable products. The RL logo is backed by Lauren's sincere dedication to consumer satisfaction. 

Ralph Lauren Baby And Children's Clothes: Smart, Practical, Affordable

When his flair for men's fashion spilled over into women's business and casual apparel, it was only matter of time before babies and children would eventually be included in the styling arena. At last, there are clothes for the wee ones with the same attention to detail as the adult clothing lines. What exactly does this mean?

* STYLE - From Ralph Lauren Polo shirts to little girls dresses and tops, the brand is tirelessly chic and easy to spot. Whether you're after a look that is traditional or a bit more trendy, you'll find it with this trusted designer. Go ahead and browse the RL skinny jeans, the graphic tees and the fleece crews. Check out the RL caps, too! It's a small world with unlimited fashion options! 

* COMFORT - It's the incredible attention to detail that will keep your babies and toddlers in the comfort zone. The materials always feel soft and smooth. There aren't any scratchy or bulky seams to irritate the skin or leave marks. The clothes are designed to fit like they should! 

* QUALITY - The materials, the workmanship and the fine, precise detailing all speak volumes about the extremely high quality of Ralph Lauren's products.

* DURABILITY - Clothes for the younger set have to survive messy mealtimes, rugged playtimes and countless wash cycles.

* VALUE - It's not really a bargain to purchase inexpensive clothes that stain easily, fall apart and wear out long before they can be outgrown. It's very expensive to replace items. However, there's true, lasting value in building a child's wardrobe that's easy to care for and provides a lot of wear.

That's right! A wardrobe at any stage in life, even as babies and children, is an investment! This fact helped lead to the creation of Brands For Kids (brandsforkids.com.au). High quality, reputable, familiar brands are available online to make it easier to find the best items for your kids for less. Our eclectic site goes beyond stylish threads for your little ones. Enjoy browsing the collection of unique baby gifts including adorable footies, booties and bloomers. You'll discover some real savings on Ralph Lauren baby and children's clothes and so much more.

 


Why we stock Ralph Lauren baby and children clothes. September 12 2014

I love Ralph Lauren's baby and children's clothes. Why? There are couple of reasons:

 

First of all, I just like the style. Those cute little babies, boys and girls look at you happily and confidently from the magazines and just melt your heart. Even before my son was born I was tempted to get something every time I was at a Ralph Lauren shop.

 

Second: Who  doesn't have the problem to dress a toddler in the morning? A simple "Daddy's got the same t-shirt on" does wonders in our house. My son doesn't have any idea about brands and he most definitely shouldn't be aware of what he is wearing, but he goes for hours telling me that this shirt is just like DADDY's, and they look very cute in the partner look!

Next point is: Ralph Lauren for kids is by far not as expensive as most people believe it is. Well, maybe it was in Australia before we founded Brands For Kids ;-)

 

Which leads to my last and most important point: It is GREAT value for money! Once you have two polo-shirts, a sweater, a sweat-shirt and a pair of jeans, your little man is dressed for the season!  Sorry  ladies, if you have a little girl, it won't be that easy, she will also need a dress and a skirt and another dress and a... You know what mean, right?

 

But seriously, for parents who need durable and comfortable clothes, Ralph Lauren is a very smart choice. In addition,  they wash very well, and you will find that they still look great even after your child has outgrown them. We have lots of hand-me-downs from my nephew to my son and they are all in a excellent  condition! 

 

Now you know why we stock this fabulous brand. What are your reasons to buy Ralph Lauren for your children? Would love to hear from you!

 

Have a great day!

Shop For Minimalist Children Clothes Online At Brands For Kids August 05 2014

The children's fashion trend is firmly rooted and growing, as parents around the globe take a more simplistic approach to their kids wardrobe needs. In truth, it's even more about the parents' needs - the need for children clothing that isn't purchased simply because of eye-popping colours, glitz or popular logos. This is a very practical fashion movement that's causing a closer look at the fundamentals of buying clothes for kids.

Selecting clothes to dress 'mini-adults' isn't the answer. Children are, after all...well, children! It's usually recommended to retain some wardrobe playfulness. There's nothing wrong with a burst of sparkles here and there but showy embellishments don't have to dominate the wardrobe.

Designer children clothes are becoming more readily available as fashion designers are testing the waters in this dynamic market. They're discovering that there's plenty of room and opportunity for tasteful and timeless children's clothing designs.

Donna Karan's NY label, DKNY, brings us an eclectic fusion of minimalist and embellished children's styles. For instance, how about a 100% blue denim cotton dress with a neckline ruffle that's edged in energizing neon pink?

The plain ruffle at the hem makes this selection a candidate for the minimalist category. It's cute but simple and durable. At under $30, it's quite the bargain.

At the same price, you'll find boys' quartz crew-neck shirts with long sleeves in 100% durable cotton.

The DKNY logo design is a highly fashionable alternative to the proliferation of sports logos and designs that have long dominated boys' fashion choices.

If you're looking to go minimal with designer logos, too, check out Ralph Lauren's childrens line. You'll discover royal blue or white long-sleeved shirts of 100% cotton that are embroidered with a classy little RL pony on the chest.

 

 

Conservative, understated and smart!

RL also appeals to the fun side of kids fashion with selections like the Baby Boy Short-Sleeved LifeSaver Polo of 100% soft cotton with attention-grabbing wide stripes of contrasting colours.

For the Baby Girls, look for the ultra-sweet pink leggings with pretty accent bows at the hems. Adorable!

 

Mayoral stands ready at the helm of children's minimalist fashion with an assortment of solid beige, navy or grey dress, shirt and pants selections for both boys and girls. Traditional. Timeless. Perfect for some minimalist 'mix and match' outfitting.

The popular approach to childrens minimalist wardrobes places an emphasis on durable, traditional clothes whilst leaving a small amount of space for select pieces that are considered whimsical. Regardless of the designs you choose for your kids, shopping with high quality in mind will save you money in the long run. Unlike inferior-quality clothing that wears out far too quickly, childrens designer clothes often look great even after serving as 'hand-me-downs' for another child or two.

Browse brandsforkids.com.au online today for your high-quality minimalist childrens clothes. Whimsical, fun selections are optional!.

Little boys hair styles April 27 2014

Little boys hair styles

baby's first haircut

First things first. My son's hair doesn't look anything like the cool styles on the pictures in this post. Speaking openly we have been to the hairdresser twice since he was born and he is nearly three. He does not like to get his hair cut!

I wish our visits to the hairdresser would look something like this:

Baby's First Haircut

Or at least like this:

first haircuts are always traumatic

But our reality is closer to this:

kids haircuts cry 12 Kids like haircuts like I like being told Santa Claus isn’t real (27 Photos)

He has probably got the messiest hair in whole of Melbourne. And there is not much I can do about it. I guess I just have to let them grow long until he asks me on his own to cut them. I actually don't mind when little boys have longer hair.

Haircut to show the stylist     

I always found that short cuts make them look grown up too soon,  transforming them from a baby to a boy.

Which one is your favourite?

Organic Baby Blankies From Apple Park April 23 2014

Today I want to give you a little info about these cute organic baby blankets from Apple Park.

     

People sometimes buy different kinds of blankets, but my suggestion to you is to stick to one kind, but get at least two - because babies get really attached to them. They get used to how they feel and how they smell and sleep with them and chew on them. You will want to wash them every couple of days and so it is good idea to have two of them. You can switch them and they age together. Ageing together is important; and with ageing I mean alternating between toys as you wash them. Otherwise if your child has a Robbie Racoon for the first six months and you then give him a new Robbie Racoon at the end of the six months, even though it is exactly the same, he or she won't like it. It won't feel the same, smell the same or taste the same. He or she will scream to give him/her the old one! And we don't really want to think what will happen if you lose it. So you can see it is a good idea to have two.

All blankies are 30 by 30 cm and are super soft. Like all Apple Park products they are made of certified organic cotton. They are very safe for babies and good for environment. Free from harmful chemicals and are naturally hypoallergenic. If your baby happens to have an allergy, these little buddies would be an ideal choice.            

All toys have got little hands, feet and ears - the parts babies love to chew on.

It is a really good idea if you sleep with them for a couple of days before you give it to your baby. It will have your scent and comfort the little one. They are of course washable and I strongly recommend to wash them before you give to your child.          

Now hurry and check them out. There are couple to choose from. They are a fantastic present for any new parent .


Our Easter escape to Daylesford April 20 2014

Easter this year didn't really spoil us with weather, but hey! It is long weekend and you have to make the most out of it. One early grey morning we jumped in the car and headed north. We found ourselves 150km north west from Melbourne in a little town located in the Shire of Hepburn. Daylesford, here we are!

 

As we are arriving at the first stop, at the Daylesford lake, the morning breeze is still cold. There are a great variety of birds greeting us from the water and Max is chasing them laughing loudly.

Living in big busy cities we often forget, that only a couple of hours separate us from the breathtaking beauty of the Australian country side.

After a short stop at the Bakery in the Daylesford main street and one strong latte we are heading to the Chocolate Mill. Only a couple of minutes drive and we are there. Located in the most beautiful spot this little house is surrounded by the giant old gum trees. The grey sky and the occasional sun ray make it almost fairytale like.

 

It is very crowded inside. But it was to be expected, it is Easter! People are busy buying chocolate. The chocolate is delicious. It made from scratch in the old fashioned European way. The way it used to be many-many years before mass production took over.

 

    

 

We aren't staying long. It is a bit too busy and hectic for what we are after. We are off to the Trentham falls. But by the time we arrive there, even though it is just a short drive, Max is soundly asleep in his seat in the back. The fresh country air must be responsible for that.

 

I am walking down to the waterfalls on my own, leaving my men behind in the car. The scene is overwhelming! Huge ancient gum trees, kookaburras laugh, eucalyptus scent. I only stay a couple of minutes and hurry back to the car.

 

We are off to Melbourne again and couldn't have asked for a more beautiful autumn day out. Sometimes it all you need to be entirely happy!

It's more important now than ever for retailers to join consumers in supporting manufacturers who step up to take responsibility for their goods. BPA, PCBs, PVC - these toxic chemicals don't belong on your little ones' clothes or in their toys. They can be absorbed through the skin, inhaled or ingested. They can wreak havoc on both short-term and long-term health. Some can even contribute to sterility and alter the structure of DNA

Mayoral children clothes and Brands For Kids are the perfect match for bringing you the ultimate in high quality and affordable fashion for kids. Combining the efforts of one of the world's top designers and producers of kids fashion with those of an online shop that's dedicated to helping the discerning buyer find the best for less makes it so much easier to keep your little ones in style and comfort.

Mayoral Kids Fashion: Mayoral Children Clothes Respond To A Global Demand

For nearly 75 years, Mayoral has concentrated on producing stylish wear for children. What began as a source for high quality stockings and socks has evolved into a formidable kids fashion house that delivers the warm and colourful Spanish influence on design. Currently marketed in nearly 70 countries, its continued expansion is clear evidence that Mayoral is meeting or surpassing all of the consumer's criteria for infant and toddlers fashion.

Coordinated Fashion Choices Keep Your Little Ones Looking Their Best

It's easy to break the fashion mold and make your own unique statement with coordinated styles from Mayoral. For instance, the popular dreamy embroidered girls dresses in ultra feminine pink chiffon

and the white girls dresses of thick and luxurious cotton are easily paired with your choice of sweet Mary Janes.

Top off the look with a warm and stylish beige knot cardigan

or an intricately patterned openwork rose pullover.

 

For those days when a little more cover-up is wanted, you can't go wrong with the beige trench coat for girls. It's fully lined, smooth as silk and classy beyond words. You won't believe the high-end detailing on this Mayoral girls coat. It's like a mini version of an adult trench, right down to the flaps, the button work and the belt that top off the tailored look. It's an incredible find at $79.95! 

Mayoral Boys Fashions Are Smart, Practical And Durable

It's easy to picture your little guy in a colourful solid or striped polo shirt and the eye-catching cardigan with the eclectic stripe pattern. Boys windbreakers have never looked so good!

And, they're totally reversible for two looks in one! Your baby boy will look totally ready to go in fun sport shoes constructed in mixed textures or the look of sturdy denim.

Twill shorts and pants put you in the ready for all-year-long easy care and care-free styling. There are plenty of pockets at the ready for all of the keepsakes that little guys find in a day's worth of adventures. The waistbands are adjustable, making an easy and comfortable fit. These fashion basics are 100% cotton wash-and-go at its best.

Lucky for us, the success of Mayoral's children clothes is built upon its solid reputation for kids fine fashion, superior quality and reasonable prices.

Organic Baby Toys at Brands For Kids February 01 2014

We are very excited because we have added another great brand to the Brands For Kids range of beautiful products for babies and children. Our latest discovery is the adorable range of organic toys from Apple Park.

Apple Park is a San Francisco based company that makes luxurious products for babies and children, which are also environmentally friendly and responsible.

Why organic you say? I did a little research and here is some information for you to understand why you need organic products for your baby or toddler:

When a baby comes to this world it has already been exposed to hundreds of chemicals, for example from the food we (mothers) eat, medication and clothing. To choose organic toys for your baby is a sensible choice to prevent further contact with even more chemicals.

As we all know, babies and toddlers love to chew on their toys. Only problem is that many toys contain BPA which can be harmful to reproductive health and have been linked to many health problems such as Asthma and allergies. Organic products like those from Apple Park are naturally hypoallergenic because they are made from 100% organic cotton and are free from harmful chemicals and materials.

Organic toys are also good for environment. The farms that grow organic cotton use only natural pest control. Organic farming saves energy, protects water quality and keeps harmful chemicals out of our environment.

And if all these facts are not enough, just have a look at these cute organic farm buddies and you will fall in love with them just as we did.

Please meet Boxer Dog, Pirate Pig, Chef Cow, Penny Pig, and Poncho Pony.

 


Should my kids wear sunglasses? December 15 2013

As many of you know I wasn't born in Australian and grew up in the cooler European climate where sun protection is not as important as it is here in Australia.

My son Max on the other hand was born here Down Under and of course I was confronted with this issue like any other Aussie Mum. I installed the SunSmart app on my iphone and discovered that the sun protection is required most days at least from 9 to 5. We follow SunSmart's guidance religiously and never go out of the house on sunny day without a hat and sun cream. But what about children's eyes? Do they need to wear sunglasses as adults do? I did some research and here is what I found on abc.net.au:

"Well, kids should definitely wear sunglasses while they are outside, says Dr Michael Jones, paediatric eye specialist at the Children's Hospital at Westmead and the Sydney Eye Hospital, NSW.

In fact, wearing sunglasses as a youngster can help protect against the most common eye conditions that develop later in life.

We tend to forget that a lot of our sun exposure happens when we are children, when we spend a lot of time outdoors in direct sunlight, Jones says.

UV light from the sun is a form of radiation and it can damage cells in the eye.

There's no firm evidence that children's eyes are more susceptible to UV light than adults'. But we do know the longer eyes are exposed without protection the more damage they accumulate from these harmful rays."

That is a pretty clear YES. It will help to justify some parents spending up to $100 on Ray Ban's sunnies :-) Guilty? But seriously sun glasses don't have to cost a fortune. For sunglasses to be good quality sunglasses they have to have standard UV 400 lenses or 100% UV protection. Don't buy the coloured sunglasses as they won't protect your child's precious eyes. Most of those styles are only made for fun. You can have a look at the Cancer Council as they have a small range of children styles and of course here at Brands For Kids.

And keep in mind, it is never too early to for a child to wear sunglasses and they do look so cool!

Do your children wear sunglasses?

 


Little Girls Dresses at Brands For Kids December 10 2013

Christmas is just around the corner. Have you picked her party dress yet? They are so many little girls dresses around it is so hard to choose!

I don't have that kind of problem, I have a little boy. Ralph Lauren polo shirt and shorts (from Brands For Kids of course) are the perfect match with his dad's outfit (at least someone gets to go in partner look...)

My brother has a little girl. Maybe not that little anymore...she is turning 13 this month, but when she was little, you know like really small, 1 or 2, I just couldn't stop shopping for her. There are so many beautiful clothes for baby girls. You can go crazy. And she always was so thankful! She would stare at herself in the mirror with total satisfaction, something that is really only acceptable and cute if it is only a very small child. I always joke that my marriage might get into big trouble if I have a daughter one day. I know I will spend way too much money on her clothes. Did you actually know that mums around the world will rather spend money on their children's designer clothes than on themselves? Interesting isn't it?

I guess I am one of them. I do love children clothes! Boys as girls. It is just that there is so much more for girls. You know,  what does an aussie boy need for summer? A couple of pair of shorts and a couple of shirts, a pair of board shorts and a rashy and a hat or a cap. That's it, right? Girls are a completely different story. They need dresses (the more the better), tops, skirts, shirts, shorts, blouses, leggings, jumpsuits, a cardigan and a jumper for cooler days. And then there are tutu skirts and the princess' dresses of course. I think you know what I mean.

As I can't shop for girls clothes myself I LOVE to buy them for Brands For Kids. We have the most beautiful styles to make sure your little darling will dazzle every day.

Here are some of my favs:

Absolutely breathtaking baby and toddler dress from Hartstrings. This is a timeless beautiful style, with cascades of ruffles and sparkly sequin details. If you have a little princess running around, the chances are pretty high she will fall in love with this dress just like I did.

HS Baby Girl Pink Party Dress

 

When I saw this little gem for the first time I actually gasped out loud. Words are simply not enough to describe this amazing style by Laura Ashley. It will be the perfect choice for a hot Christmas day.

Laura Ashley Crochet Flower Seersucker Dress

Here is another little beauty. What can I say? The classic shapes and colours are still the best. This gorgeous baby dress will make any little girl feel very special.

Pippa & Julie Embroidered Dot Flower Dress

 

That's only a few of so many beautiful dresses for little girls we have in stock. So here is a little special for you, patient reader!

The truth of having kids December 04 2013

Just came across this cute comic by artist Grant Snider. He is dad to a 1-year-old baby girl and gets at the ultimate truth of having kids. I am absolutely loving it, especially how ME became WE part :-) What is your favourite?

 


Advent Calendar November 15 2013

Are you getting your little one an Advent calendar?

I spent over 14 years of my life in Germany and an "Adventskalender" is definitely a must have in every house at Christmas time. Calendars might vary from household to household: some will put coins in it, some little toys. The most traditional is of course chocolate. My son would love that one for sure! But whatever is inside, it certainly will make the little hearts beat a little bit faster every morning.

I was browsing through the net and found some really nice DIY calendars. I thought I would share my favourites with you. I actually think we might do one with Max. I guess we are going for the chocolate one.

My favourite is the number 1. Which one is yours?

 


Latest spring arrivals November 11 2013

What a wonderful sunny morning! You can feel the summer is on its way. Yey! It is about time really :-)

Our pick of the day is this beautiful Carter's combo.

I, for one, am loving the cherry sunglasses. Check out our latest arrivals for little girls.

Have a great day!

A perfect bow for beautiful girls dresses! July 07 2013

Hi, 

It is Sunday again. Looks like it is going to be my blog day :-) It was a sunny winter day here in Melbourne and I have been taking pictures of the beautiful toddler's dresses for Brands For Kids summer collection which just arrived on Friday.

I had to iron some of them so they look their best.

One gorgeous Laura Ashley toddler dress had a big beautiful bow on the back. After I ironed it I was left with a problem of how to tie a bow as perfect as it was before I opened it. Sounds easy... Not so easy if you actually need a perfect bow for a picture. After a couple of trials I finally got the twist! I thought I might share this little trick with you just in case you want to know how to make a perfect bow for a little girl's party dress.

 1. First you will have to line up both sites of your sash, smooth, straight and even.

Bring "a" to the right directly over "b" and take it directly under "b" to make the first tightening tie 

 2. Now take the excesses part of "b" and bring it up creating the first loop

  

3. While holding that first loop in place, bring "a" directly up-behind-around-and-through the "b" opening whole creating the second loop (as you would with shoe laces) 

         

Here you go, now you should have a perfect bow.

  

Don't forget to check www.brandsforkids.com.au daily! We have lots of beautiful girls dresses (for babies and toddlers) coming in shortly.

Have a great week 

Elena 

P.s. Want a little sneak peek?

Baby Aspen @ Brands For Kids June 23 2013

Hi, 
It is Sunday again and I finally have a chance to take a minute and write a little. I have so much to tell you about Brands For Kids and  what I am doing and plan on doing, but my time, as I am sure yours too, is very limited.
So today I thought I will introduce you to my favourite supplier- Baby Aspen
Baby Aspen is a premier designer and manufacturer of boutique-quality baby gifts.  I found Baby Aspen while searching for a present for a dear friend's baby shower. I was looking for something special of course and spent hours looking around the net. When I saw the Welcome Home Baby set and knew I didn't have to look any further. Yeah!!  A minute later I was extremely disappointed to find out it wasn't available in Australia... 
Some time later when I was planning my store, I thought about Baby Aspen again and knew it would be a perfect addition to my range. I was so happy to be selected as an official retailer!
 
 "Our retailers are carefully selected to ensure they hold the same high standards." 
 
That what Baby Aspen says about their retailers and I am very proud to be one of them :-)
Of course I chose Baby Aspen because of their unique design. I have never seen such beautiful presentation before. Have you seen the Bunch O 'Bloomers or Bunnies in the garden gift sets? Cute! Gorgeous! Adorable! Their team is run by dedicated, creative and talented professionals, which is obvious. But most important is that all Baby Aspen gift sets undergo a rigid testing process to ensure the safety and well-being of the little "end users". Being a mum myself nothing is more important for me than the well-being of my son and the same goes for Brands For Kids - QUALITY and SAFETY.
 We just added a whole bunch of new Baby Aspen products to our page, so don't waste any time searching if you need a baby shower gift or want to welcome a important little person into the world, you've already found it here at Brands For Kids :-)
Have a great day 
Elena

London Global Kids Fashion Week June 03 2013

The first Global Kids Fashion week took place in  London in March this year showcasing the latest trends in children's fashion. The event was sponsored by a luxury children's clothing site and brands including Chloe, Missoni, Paul Smith & Little Marc Jacobs participated. The show was highly controversial: Is it appropriate to dress little kids in high end fashion? Here is a pic from telegraph.co.uk  featuring young model walking for Little Marc Jacobs.

What is your opinion, what is cute and what is simply too much?

MasterChef June 02 2013

Are you watching MasterChef Boys vs. Girls tonight?  I remember not watching any of my favourite shows the year my son was born. I even missed the whole season of Desperate Housewives. Impossible in the days before Max. The early days with a new born might be quite challenging, feeding, rocking, changing, feeding, rocking, changing and feeding again... Catching up on sleep seems to be the number one priority in you life. Today my son is two and I have regained my rights to watch TV! So I will watch the MasterChef tonight, given my little man goes to sleep at seven o'clock...

I wish you all a great Sunday,

Elena
