Essentials & Equipment
Childs Farm is a brand new player in the children’s toiletries market. Free from SLS, parabens and nasties found in most mainstream brands this is a gentle yet fun alternative for children aged 4+.
We have been getting soapy with their products at bath time for the last couple of weeks and I can tell you they are a delight. Having set out to use scents which surprise you they have created a fruity almost sweetshop-esq range of flavours. The bubble bath is bubbly, the shampoos and body wash work quickly (tested after an hour of naked painting no less!) and the conditioner makes dread-locked curls silky smooth again.
The packaging is beautifully illustrated and has a real sense of fun about it (Monty in particular loves all of the horses). The names of the products are playful – Tame that Mane!: conditioner for unruly hair or Get Your Feet Wet!: Bubble bath for Buccaneers.
My only slight niggle is that they are all gender specific. The bubble baths are both organic tangerine yet come in a girls and a boys version. The conditioner is only branded for girls. In our house we still share baths, Milla gets covered in mud and Monty has the unruly hair so I would prefer to see a more inclusive range. That said, I don’t think it would put me off buying in the future.
Each 250ml bottle costs £4.65 and there are gift bags available from £11.50 in their online shop.
These are so lovely they have inspired me to write a stocking filler smellies post – look out for that next week!
