Thanks to @mockduck on Twitter, I’ve been introduced to the joy of Bambino Goodies (they’re on Twitter too, as @bambinogoodies) — they’re a shopping guide for baby products that aren’t all “covered in teddy bears or baby pink, blue, or cream”. Looks like I don’t need to worry so much about finding the good stuff, as they’ve got it covered! Here’s two sites they’ve highlighted recently:
• VIVOBAREFOOT’s kids shoes, which (unlike Clarks’) are not divided into girls’ and boys’ shoes (though admittedly some do say in the description that they’re for girls/boys), and come in a variety of colours and styles (I love the Chelsea boots and the tiger shoes).
• Wild Things Funky Little Dresses. OK, this one says it’s “for little girls”, but then they are all dresses! They’re also all gorgeous, from this fun fox dress to the more sensible and practical pocket apron dress — and none of them are pink.
