Review: When we were offered some clothes to review for the girls from the Debenhams Kids Clothes range, I had no idea what we had winging its way to us. It was with quite a bit of excitement that Georgie and I opened up the package…
As you can see, the four items of clothing were all well packaged and also included the hangers which is really useful. They all seemed to be folded carefully and didn’t look too creased when I opened up the bags and hung them up.
Georgie and Lydia were sent a dress and coat each to try out, with one item each from Debenhams bluezoo range, and one each from a “Designers at Debenhams” range. My initial impressions were really positive; the clothes are all really beautiful and seem to be very well made and designed.
We were sent a Baker Baby by Ted Baker jacket for Lydia; it is a really gorgeous shade of dark pink with a lovely flowery lining. I don’t buy an awful lot of girly clothes but this appeals to me a lot more than some of the things I have seen lately. The colour is bold and the 100% cotton means it is great against Lydia’s sensitive skin, and easy to wash when she spits up on it!
The jacket is quilted, with a bow detail and pretty gold edged buttons. The lining peeps out at you when you turn up the cuffs or peek under the collar. It is a really pretty jacket and suitable for autumn and the milder winter days, if teamed with a nice warm hat. At £24 I would probably buy this if I knew we going to be going out anywhere nice with the girls & needed to be outside at any point – it would be perfect to put over a party dress at a wedding or similar event.
Lydia’s dress is the cheapest item in the bunch; a £10 striped cotton dress with red edging at the neckline, poppers to make slipping it on & off easier, and sweet animals appliquéd to the bottom.
This is something I would definitely buy Lydia; it is soft on the skin, looks really sweet on her and is easily teamed up with white leggings or tights in the cooler weather. The stripes make it seem classic while the animals bring some fun! At £10, I think the price is great, especially for a higher-end store like Debenhams.
Georgie’s dress is very smart, and the perfect little party dress. Although it’s not something I would usually choose myself for them, she looks really great in it and it has some pretty detailing on the skirt and waist that make it look really nice. The torso of the dress is striped, with buttons up the back and a smart navy collar. There is a velvet waistband and belt, and below that an attractive full skirt.
I would probably buy this dress for a special occasion; it would be perfect for a smart birthday party, and something a little bit different to wear to a family gathering. Georgie looks really grown up in it in comparison to a lot of the dresses she has! At £24 for this, I would have to have an event in mind before purchasing.
My favourite item from our mystery package is Georgie’s coat, and she has already had plenty of wear out of this in the four weeks we have been testing these clothes. It is really smart and seems very warm, practical and waterproof. The inside of the dress in lined with bright pink fleece, and the double fastening of a zip & toggles is great for our toddler, as she has begun to wriggle out of coats at inappropriate moments.
The coat is machine washable and can be tumble dried – which is perfect for splashing about in muddy puddles. It has seen a lot of action already and Georgie always seems snug & dry inside her smart padded coat. It is definitely going to last us all winter! This coat is a really nice length on our tall toddler – something we have had problems with in the past.
We have had some compliments on this coat while we’ve been out! I think we will certainly get £26 worth of wear out of this coat, and it will still be fine to pass down to Lydia in a year or so.
Overall I have been impressed with the Debenhams Kids Clothes. While they are slightly more expensive than the clothes we normally buy, this is more to do with our budget than choice – I would love to spoil my girls with swish clothes like this, and you get what you pay for! The quality is great and the designs gorgeous.
We give these clothes a score of 4 stars.
