    Hi Bim, I love living here but I'd have to be honest and say that the kids clothes here aren't a patch on the UK. We tend to buy our kids stuff from Target and sometimes Big W but it's nothing like the value of Next or Asda or Tesco. My mum has just decided to come out and visit and I've already got a list as long as your arm of stuff I want her to bring out!

    Why worry abput the clothes you cant buy here? No one here is interested in where your clothes come from,or what you look like here! and you only need a few shorts and t shirts along with their school unifrm for much of the year anyway!

    I've found children's clothes tend to be upto age 7 here, once they need age 8+ they become minature teenagers and I'm not at all comfortable with my 8 year old looking like a smaller version of my 16 or 20 year olds. I've also found sizing rather on the small side.

    Its Pumpkin Patch, there are shops in the UK and New Zealand. I find the quality very good there and they go up to about age 14. They have a factory outlet at Harbour town near the airport which is brilliant for buying out of season stuff for next year. Its also good for getting Christmas pressies for the Uk as they have loads of winter stock when its our summer. Perfect for sending back and its cheap.

     

    On the whole I find quality slightly poorer here but places like kids Cotton On, Target (baby Target) and Big W are good. There is a shop called kids Club which offers cheap stuff but it doesn't last long. In fact you'll probably find brand names like O'Neil, Billabong and Quiksilver cheaper in the UK. If you've got a TK Max's near you I'd stock up.

     

    But as Sarah says, no-one gives a stuff about what the kids wear here, I can guarantee that from seeing what they wear when the kids come over to play. Its definately not a label City.

    i find my two are outgrowing their clothes before out-wearing them ....

     

    I don't really miss kids clothes shops and that Target, Big W, etc fit the bill fine. Jeans and tracky bottoms for the winter and shorts and t-shirts for summer look good from anywhere. But I will say, that PJs here for evening shopping are all the rage!!!! :wubclub:
