Funky Bright Baby Clothes?

(45 Posts)

Does anyone know any brands that do funky bright coloured baby clothes that are NOT exclusively available pastel shades of blue, pink, white and yellow?

Specifically, I'm on the search for something cheery to buy for my new babe for the trip home from hospital, but generally I have an aversion to pink and am keen to find a good quality retailer that will do interesting good quality outfits over the years too.

I have the same issue

Can't stand baby blue or boys in camouflage & denim!

Depends what your budget is.

The whole Nordic kids range is absolutely lovely but you'll need a second mortage, as with tobytiger, brights and stripes etc.

Next have some lovely bright colours in for boys at the moment - blue, red etc and they are cheaper.

There is a website that just does plain colourful vests etc but I can't remember it - someone will be along shortly who can smile

Hi thanks, That's what I'm talking about!... the nordic kids and the polarn o pyret stuff is great!

The only prob now is the price - £30 for a babygro!? Still - maybe for the odd special occassion.

Will check out Next and H&M too once on mat leave - (their online sites are not v good.

If there is a polarn o pyret near you, they often have quite good stuff on sale.

We got loads in the sale for DD when she was really small. They are pretty good quality as well.

Plutothatpresentdown Wed 02-Dec-09 14:39:06

DS is kitted out in a mixture of hand me down and new P&P and Nordic stuff - it's really really good quality and even better when they get a bit older and don't grow so fast. You can't get P&P on line in the UK but they have a few shops. do similar stuff to Nordic and sometimes it's a bit cheaper.

H&M are good too.

TheDevilWearsPrimark Wed 02-Dec-09 14:40:27

always brilliant quality. The stock changes all the time too so have a look again in a few days,

La redoute and p.o.p are fab too.

TheDevilWearsPrimark Wed 02-Dec-09 14:42:38


and H&M , baby gap and Zara.

Makipuppy Wed 02-Dec-09 14:46:59

Green baby is the nicest cotton by far.

But if you want something bright this is very seasonal with some little tights...

Toby Tiger, have a look on ebay. Lovely bright colours. 2nd H&M, gap (although I find ebay better for choice than the stores these days) and next catalogue as a lot of the stores just do blue & pink pastel stuff.

Rainbow babies- any colour you want.

happypants Tue 27-Jul-10 21:19:42

Have bought stuff from this, bright clothes., really cool clothes..I hate the plain blue and pink outfits.

They have a sale on at the moment - hoorah and also donate to charity which makes a nice change hope this helps?

Peckeroo Wed 03-Nov-10 17:27:53

QualityQueen Sat 19-Mar-11 12:26:24 - online at last! Free P&P at the moment - quote FPP at checkout

Pumpkin Patch is great, but again can be a bit pricey.

Sirzy Sun 10-Apr-11 20:17:58

Blue zoo at debenhams is great for brighter stuff!

DuelingFanjo Sun 10-Apr-11 20:28:28

these are cute. I've just bought a few pairs. I haven't received them yet but they seem really cool and lots of choice.

our local children's clothing shop uses the line "because childhood's too short for pastel shades". sums it up nicely! and they've a great scandinavian organic brand, maxomorra which has lots of baby grows, rompers etc. bright colours and scandinavian design but not the price of POP or others, especially in their sale at the moment.

My auntie sends over clothes from the US which admittedly isn't much help but maybe you can get them on eBay? They are so funky and non girly.. I really love them. Hang on I'll go find the names.

Astralabe Sat 28-Apr-12 18:36:08

Carters... Gorgeous!

beaniesq Thu 30-Aug-12 18:35:31

It's ALL bright baby grows from newborn to 18months and boys and girls. Plus unisex stuff.

lighthousekeeping Thu 30-Aug-12 18:40:00

I've bought brand new Katvig baby grows on eBay recently and they are stunning.

BikeRunSki Thu 30-Aug-12 19:31:00

Online shops - IndiaCoco and Little Sunflowers, Boden
On high street - H&M, John Lewis, Next, Sainsbury's. All also do the pastel crap, buy good brights too.
Keep an eye on TKMaxx for Katvig too.
JojoMamanBebe, Boots

Wish Carters shipped to the UK!

I've been given presents of cute brightly coloured clothes from French relatives from a shop called Du Pareil au Meme:

they deliver in UK and are not too pricey.

I have the same problem and have really struggled to find any clothes I like in England, the colours are just so dull and my DD looks lovely in bright colours.

millymae Thu 30-Aug-12 20:20:15

Have a look at the Love it Love it Love it web-site
You'll definitely find something bright and cheerful here because it's all they stock. I've bought lots of things over the last 12 months and they've all arrived really quickly and washed well.

Shopaholic2012 Sun 16-Sep-12 21:46:35

I love Boden, and Joules although its a bit pricey.
Theres TotzShop they have a good website with good sales, plus e-bay is quite good for the odd bargain

ConfessionsofaMumpreneur Mon 11-Mar-13 23:06:49

Try, they have bright rompers with dinosaurs/ penguins etc on them . Also H&M do a great range of bright vests and Marks & Spencer have just started doing some brigt bits x

anniewhite82 Fri 28-Mar-14 16:27:50
