If the thought of dragging your little ones round the shops for hours on end fills you with dread but you want (or rather…need!) to find that perfect outfit for your bubba, then look no further! We have found three fab, fashionable and fresh new online stores that you have to have on your radar. Why do we love them? Well, firstly, each store has a lovely backstory – the designs they carry are a unique mesh of cute with chic and secondly, most of the pieces are created with the sticky Singapore climate in mind – which makes them perfect for the more active little ones out there. But mainly we love them because being online, it means we can shop for gorgeous kids clothing all from the comfort of our air-conditioned homes, and even perhaps with a glass of vino once the kiddos have dozed off!
Gnome & Post
Created by Singapore mama Patricia Teo, Gnome & Post came to life after Patricia noticed the real lack of fabulously fashionable wears on offer for little ones. Named after the international ‘travelling gnome,’ Gnome & Post lovingly curates a selection of toddler and little one’s clothing from all around the world. While brands such as Slugs & Snails are ideal for little ones with skin conditions thanks to organic cotton, Petits Coquins and Jelly the Pug are perfect for mamas looking for something a little more quirky for their littlies. Here at Sassy Mama, we love the cute and quirky t-shirts from Bebe De Pino – in fact, we wish they came in mama sizes too!
Oh Happy Fry
For mamas with little boys, Oh Happy Fry is definitely the site for you! Started in Singapore by mum-of-one, Rae, Oh Happy Fry stocks beautiful pieces from around the world, ranging from kids clothing to accessories, toys and décor. We are loving their selection of funky international brands such as Mini Rodini, Indikidual and Hello Apparel. Think plenty of prints and colours in organic cotton and recycled materials, perfect for active little monkeys in the hot Singapore Summer. From unique baby rompers to toddler threads, there’s even one or two girls pieces in there for those mamas with one of each.
When a brand was founded to let kids be kids, you know you are onto a winner. Started in Singapore by two expat moms who were wracking their brains trying to find quality kids clothing for their bubbas, Rorybird is a fab new children’s brand featuring whimsical designs and tropical colours. Every piece from this gorgeous new brand stopped us in our online-browsing-tracks and had us oohing and aahing over their bold and bright colours, hand-drawn designs and unique patterns. Featuring designs for boys and girls with sizes ranging from newborns up to 6 year olds, Rorybird delivers on style and substance. How, you ask? Well, Rorybird gives you not just one, but three great reasons to treat your toddlers: One, they are classic – meaning no fashion fads here, two, thanks to superior fabrics, they can last dozens of washes and won’t even need that much ironing, and finally, they’re unique. Each piece has been lovingly and carefully hand sketched to make sure designs are totally original and what’s more – any piece can be monogrammed, making it well and truly one of a kind. That’s us sold!
