Writing on children's clothes, naff?

'Mummy's little monster", "I love the flowers" "Number 1 babe" and "Roar roar!" ...

Am I being unreasonable to think it's a little bit naff? Pictures, great, but not keen on writing all over kids clothes.

Yanbu. I hate character clothes too

I'm not keen but as long as it's not an inappropriate Slogan then each to their own.

You canthinkwhat you like. It doesn't mean you are right.

It's called personal taste.

TrueBlu Tue 08-Mar-16 07:23:33

It bothers me because the only cheap shop I can buy clothes without writing all over is H&M. Otherwise it's mini Boden which can be £££

Surely you can't have an issue with "if you think I'm cute you should see my mummy"? shock

What Soup said.

What's it to you? Don't dress your kids in it, but don't bitch about others.

Yep so naff. I selectively shop at Next as some of their pieces are plain and Jojo and John Lewis own brand

Naff. Especially the Disney stuff blush

Sirzy Tue 08-Mar-16 07:26:30

I have never had s trouble buying slogan free t shirts from any cheaper shops.

FigMango1 Tue 08-Mar-16 07:27:21

Only H&M? Really? I have seen non slogan clothes in every single shop.

Each to their own but I also think it's naff and don't buy them for my children. I go to John Lewis, Gap, Petit Bateau, Trotters and Boden to avoid. There are also some lovely small French kids clothes shops near where I live (central London). I actually also don't really like pictures blush

I was born 30 years too late.

Oh come on OP, I saw a "my daddy's jealous because I suck mummy's boobies all day" babygro the other week. Surely you don't have a problem with that?

We have an asda close by and they sell 3 packs of t-shirts and a very reasonable price. The top one will be fine, but the two underneath covered in bloody writing.

Ones which don't are from more expensive shops, it's frustrating on a budget.

I hate it too, but have never had a problem avoiding it in shops like Sainsbury's etc. Obviously they do sell slogan stuff too, but not exclusively.

Sirzy Tue 08-Mar-16 07:35:16,default,pd.html

2 plain t shirts for £4. Not sure how much more budget you want! That took approximately 30 seconds to find

Someone gave me babygro with 'I only cry when ugly people hold me' on it. Went straight to the charity shop. I manage to get slogan free clothes from lots of places, tu, tesco, nutmeg are all cheap. My ds does like pictures though. I also hate maternity wear with writing on it.

OhShutUpThomas Tue 08-Mar-16 07:36:58

I think they're awful too.

But for future reference, saying 'naff' is now also naff wink

TrueBlu Tue 08-Mar-16 07:37:49

I got the mini Boden catalogue through yesterday so have been sitting reading it this morning. I was thinking oh what lovely prints and colours, no writing but £14.50 for a bloody t-shirt! <off to hunt for a discount voucher>

EmpressOfTheVulvaCupcakes Tue 08-Mar-16 07:39:31

I never really got the writing / brand logos on clothes thing full stop tbh. Other people obviously do but it just looks strange to me.

TrueBlu Tue 08-Mar-16 07:39:49

Ah ha! Thank you Sirzy, they must be cottoning on that not everyone likes it!

I chose naff as I was purposefully trying to be carefully what word I used and couldn't think of another one half asleep

Sirzy Tue 08-Mar-16 07:41:33

I don't think is a case of just cottoning on, Ds is 6 and in the last 6 years I have never had an issue

Smoothyloopy Tue 08-Mar-16 07:42:22

I've managed to buy non-slogan & slogan, sorry if that makes my children naff, in cheaper shops including the supermarkets.

TrueBlu Tue 08-Mar-16 07:42:57

I've always found it really difficult in asda and Sainsburys.
