An alternative parent/kid website and zine for the generation who have grown older but not up. The kind who are more likely to be found down the skate park with their kids than teaching them table manners. For the parents who thought they’d never be parents and the kids who think mum and dad are cool (well, kind of).

Clip Art

Hurrah, at last a kids hair accessory brand that isn’t all glitter and fairies. Lottie Nottie make (mostly) hair clips and bands for girls who aren’t obsessed by pink. Launched in 2011, the story goes like this: With a tomboy daughter, founder Charlotte found it hard to buy hair clips that weren’t the usual girlie...
Top Hats

Top Hats

As the temperature starts to drop our thoughts turn to what we’ll be wearing on our heads, or rather what we’ll be putting on our kids heads this winter to keep them warm and cosy, and looking cool, of course. We’re definitely into new kids beanie brand Zaini Kids. The baby brother of Zaini, which...
Rolling With The Boys

Rolling With The Boys

A few weeks ago we went down to Cuckfield in West Sussex to hang with brothers Blue 11, Noah 8 and Frasier 5 and their dad Christian. After a session on the trampoline they took us to their local skate park which Christian (who presented 90’s Channel 5 show RAD) made a reality by winning round...
Suits You

Suits You

Instead of wading through the sea of swimsuits out there (ho ho), we thought go straight to the top and ask Lucy Ball, lingerie and swimwear designer and trend forecaster, for her edit of the best swimsuits around this summer. Seeing as Lucy has designed for Agent Provocateur and WGSN and has a 2.5 year...

Here is Kate of Tootsa MacGinty‘s sister and daughter wearing the same Clothkits hat 30 years apart. Kate says “This gorgeous Clothkits hat has just been handed down yet again. It was my little sister’s hat (my 2 year old’s auntie) and she wore it during the late 1980′s. My nephew (her son) has worn...
Granny Knits

Granny Knits

If your kids are lucky enough to have a granny who knits, then you’ll probably have a nice little collection of one-off, lovingly handcrafted, possibly personalised jumpers, cardis, tanks, hats, blankets… The beauty of it is you’re not going to see any other child in the playground wearing the same thing, and there’s something delightful...
Silly About Sun-San

Silly About Sun-San

Slightly late to the party, we recently discovered Sun-San sandals, the water resistant leather sandals that have been a cult classic in America since 1940. They reached UK shores last summer and are quite frankly the coolest sandals we’ve seen. They look like classic leather sandals, but there’s a twist: the leather is coated with...

Worn Again

As our first ‘Worn Again’ was so popular, we’ve decided to make it a regular feature. Kimberley of Mini Magpie sent in these amazing photos of her son Odin and her husband Jørn wearing the same jumpsuit 30 or so years apart. Here’s what she said: “Jørn’s mum, Gretha, made this zip up jump suit...
