Kids Clothes

Postby NYfiancee » Thu Jun 07, 2007 11:16 am

Right before i start this, I have no children of my own!!!
My H2b and i were both raised quite traditionally, like our parents believed that kids should be kids - i know i'm not really explaining this right.
Anyway, was buying pressies for our friends kids yesterday. The baby was grand - could have stayed in Mothercare all day! But trying to buy clothes for the 4 year old was a nightmare... I prob sound very old fashioned but it was extremely difficult to get "age-appropriate" stuff so to speak. Even in Dunnes.... I gave up on Next months ago while trying to buy for my cousins... Do any of the mums out there find the same problem or am i in the dark ages????

I'm not sure what you mean by age appropriate. DD is only a toddler and I've never had a problem finding clothes for her I probably have the opposite problem I see too much I like :o0 maybe it will be tougher in years to come.

Age appropriate as in there abit too grown up for them.. I've noticed that the clothes are getting abit sexed up but I find Next brilliant for kids clothes.. they are really up to date and funky and the kids love them.

IKWYM about the age appropriate.

I have always found Next to be the exception to the rule though

This is one of my MAJOR gripes in life.

Its so hard to buy clothes for little girls, that aren't inspired by adult fashion. I find the worst culprit is Addams, (glittery skimpy tops).

I find Next actually ok, in that the clothes are very fashionable, but adapted to suit little girls, plenty of coverage etc.

I think that the more up-market the shop, the more childish the clothes, but unfortunately, we can't all shop in Gymboree all the time.

I have a son, and find that there is ALWAYS a bigger selection of girls clothes - BUT anytime I go to buy some (for a friends daughter etc) say aged 4 upwards, the clothes are a disgrace.

Call me old fashioned, but I personally think, that if I have a daughter they'll be in leggings, jeans, or pretty little dresses. No skimpy belly tops, glittery jeans, or slogans on T shirts more fit for a 17 year old for any child of mine. I assume thats what you mean by age - appropraite.

Kids should be kids - they grow up fast enough!

ok so its not just us!!!!

All I wanted to get the little girl was a little summer dress or something as a treat from her mammy and daddys mad friends cos she has been so good since the new baby arrived!

i didnt want to buy her a book or educational toy cos thats not really a treat is it!!! And it took me Flip ages to get something nice - i eventually got her a skirt and top in Dunnes - had to be very careful about the length of the skirt cos shes tall for her age....
Nightmare I tell you..... I dont know how i'll cope if/when i have my own kids... :eek

another agreement here

i go to great lengths to get 'young girls' clothes for my two. i have found some really funky stuff in Okaidi, but the price is mental
when they have big sales on i take them into the one in Arnotts and buy up half of everything suitable that i can find

Another non-Mom here. But Petit Bateau is pretty good for real kids clothes and although it's quite expensive there is an outlet at The Village in Kildare.

i feel the same but i now have a 6 year old that wants to dress like the teenagers wearing near or next to nothing and i think "omg where did this come from, i don't dress like that even going out with the girls on a mad one" so its a constant row with us when shopping, i have started bringing her with me to avoid the constant other row we have of "i'm not wearing that" so at least i can say back "you picked it, you wear it"!!!! dear lord, and everything has to be some form of pink.. with number 2 who is 13 months i go out of my way not to buy pink now!! anyway rant over there but i agree totally a lot of the clothes are not very appropriate and also whats the story with the low rise jeans etc for little girls my little one constantly has a builders arse!!!
