You know we love everything that pops out of the Wild Things studios, so no surprise we are lusting over the fabulous range of capes! There’s an owl, a rainbow bird, a butterfly, a superhero and a magic cape (suitable for a king or queen) and they all come with a coordinating mask. They’re 100% cotton, fully […]
Boo! Got your attention? Good, because it’s that time of year again, when we wade through all the scratchy net and shiny polyester to bring you the most stylish spooky dressing up outfits for your little ones. Cats, bats, witches, skeletons, devils, and even a swan – they’re all here, just a bit cooler than […]
I love this how to from MerMag. Cardboard paper wings which all of my kids were crazy about and they were super easy to make. All you need for these is a large sheet of cardboard, paper/card stock in the colour of your choice for feathers, ribbon to tie the wings on, duct tape and something to cut with! Absolutely […]
Something a little different today, we want to introduce you to I am Super Capes, a fabulous set up which sends capes to children around the world to make them feel like superheros. The charities supported are varied – from a group of volunteers who support asylum seekers and refugees in the Southampton area to The Red […]
Five-year-old Lola was helping me look for cool things for Finn’s second birthday when she spotted the Frilly Lily Butterfly Fairy Bug Costume (£29). She told me I just had to put it on the internet because, obviously, this site is the internet! So if you have a colour-loving fairy in your house this satin lined skirt with tiered layers of net, topped with […]
We asked you to show us your World Book Day costumes and, unsurprisingly, they were completely awesome – check them out. Post your photos to our Facebook page and we’ll add them to the gallery here.
This is to die for. It’s a super-cute linen all-in-one from Stella McCartney with a gathered top and fitted waist with wings! WINGS! It’s gorgeous and the price tag of £78 is pretty reasonable – if you order up a size it will last. Want.
Lola started school in September, so this is the first World Book Day we have had to do. Lola’s a little obsessive when it comes to dressing up – it has to be right. However, like most mamas, I don’t have a lot of time to pull an outfit together and I have limited skills, so I […]
These are possibly the coolest capes ever. Fierce! The tiger capes from Love Lane look utterly fabulous.

Each cape measures 33″ at its widest point and 19″ from the back of the neck. And the best bit? They’re only £25! […]

I cannot tell you how much I want this dress in my size. It’s just the right combination of dressy and casual and would be a total wardrobe staple. It’s also only £15.99 from Zara Kids, so I think I’ll have to buy it for Kitty and live vicariously through her wardrobe. As usual.
I wasn’t sure if this was a hot on the high street or a hot buy of the day – it’s both! I spotted these sweet clip-on cat ears yesterday and wish they had caught my attention for our halloween costume round up. Simple, fun and at £3.99 a pair from Zara Kids, a steal. […]
Boo! It’s that time of year when the shops fill with the sort of tat-tastic items that children love, but that send shivers down the spine of every discerning parent. Yep, Halloween is coming. Fortunately, this year (much like last year) there are some truly fabulous items out there, too, so if you are going to get into the spirit […]

Great for Halloween costumes (look out for our round-up coming soon) as well as everyday pretend play. £23.49 from Smallable, who also have a velvet and felt owl mask in too. […]
