what bhas been your best evere value for money item of clothing for your kids???
er not sure these count but £10 shorty wetsuits about 5 years ago. They live in them in the summer, they can staty in sea/river etc for hours and hours without shivering, , they just stretch and stretch to accomodate, you don't have to worry about burning shoukders/back and they look cool little surfery dudes.
Other than that, gap boys combat trousers with adjustable waists have lived through 3 7-9 year old boys, have neer gone through at knees and still look fine|!
Without at doubt white cropped jeans from Gymboree with applique frogs/lily pads on them at the bottom. I think she had them for about 3 summers. They have been passed on to my niece. Washed and washed and washed. Didn't matter how filthy they got. They were about £8 iirc.
Practically the same post as Malory!!!
Ds probably Quiksilver trunks from TK Maxx for 75p and oh and his Doodles in the JL sale for £6.50 - they can be washed in the machine.
we have a cheapy shop called Home Bargains which stocks them for a tenner - at that price I don't mind being top of feeding chain! as i said, still going strong and i have a waiting list of people anxious to inherit htem my 8 year ols is still in the age 5-7 yr-old ones and started wearing it when he was 4...The 10.5 year old one only grew out of the 6-9 year-old one this year and now has a 9-11 one which hopefuly will see him through til his teens
Pair of Gap jeans for ds2, which I bought on sale when he was 2.5. Got near constant wear out of them for over a year (remember the weather last summer ). This spring I made them into cut-off shorts with frayed edge & he looks so cute in them - reminds me of home (Australia).
White Company stripey towelling Robe- used every day, washes and dries like a dream. Very thick and fluffy.... Oh and it was £1.50 plus £2.50 postage from ebay- an absolute bargain! DD had one 9-18mo, and was outgrowing hers. The ones they sell now are not a patch on the stripey ones for quality, they are really thin, so I bought 2nd hand on purpose.
All of DDs gap jeans - bought some when she was 12 months and she wears them as skinny crops now.
A green monsoon cardi with a pink flower and little dainty buttons. She wore it when sh was 1 and now she wears it as a shrunken 3/4 sleeve little cardi and it looks so cute.
To be honest, every single thing I have bought from Gap has lasted for ages, washes well and springs back into shape, and the colours don't fade. It is very rare I buy her clothes from anywhere else now.
