ENDED: WIN Little Joules Designer Children’s Clothing!

We are delighted to be giving away a super soft Little Joules fleece to help keep your little cherub snug and looking good this winter.

The winner will be given the option to choose between either the Little Joules Merridie fleece for girls or the Little Joules Woozle fleece for boys, available in a range of colours and sizes subject to availability. Both fleeces are lightweight and super soft to touch.

little joules jnr woozle boys fleece sweatshirt multilittle joules jnr merridie girls fleece navyEvery season the designers at Little Joules delight us by making tiny improvements to our favorite fleeces, the Merridie fleece for girls and the Woozle fleece for boys. Whether they offer us new colours, new stripes or even no stripes at all, one things for sure, we all still love these fleeces! The key to their success has to be that aside from being incredibly soft and warm, they look great over almost anything and kids just want to wear them over and over again. Lots of wearing isn’t a problem though, because being 100% polyester these Little Joules kids fleeces just wash up beautifully every time. Quick 30 degree wash should be all that’s required and your little one will be back wearing their newly washed favorite fleece in no time at all!

The Merrygoround sells a great selection of hand picked children’s designer clothes for newborn babies right through to girls and boys up to the age of 10 years old. Choose from top quality brands including Barts kids, Little Joules, Ticket to Heaven, Mayoral clothing and many more, giving your little one the chance to stand out from the crowd.

Hatley Kids Collection At The Merrygoround

While many of us are bemoaning the wet weather, we’re enjoying a busy time with our fabulous Hatley Kids collection. Our collection was fast running out when hey presto, the lovely delivery man from TNT arrived with another 5 boxes!

Hatley of Canada are famous for their soft UPVC kids raincoats with cotton terry towelling linings.  They are also famous for their fabulous prints – some change every season – others just keep on going because of the huge demand! We’re not sure if there’s as much rain in Canada as the UK (is it possible?!) but they certainly know how to make great kids rainwear! We have tried a number of brands at The Merrygoround, but we’ve found that the Hatley kids range is the best by far.  Kids just love the funky designs, Mums love the practicality and quality (and sensible prices) and when it’s Granny buying she just can’t resist the matching boots and umbrella!

Hatley Splash Jacket Yellow BoysOne of our favourites is the Hatley Splash jacket for boys in bright yellow.It’s bright, fun and functional and most importantly it will make sure you’re little one stays dry as he stands out from the crowd! Team it up with the Hatley Neoprene Boots in Navy and Yellow and you’re all set!

The New Autumn Winter 2012 collection from Hatley kids is as strong as ever. The new prints for girls include Pink Stars and Snow Balls. As always there’s matching Raincoats, Welly Boots and Umbrellas in all designs. New for the boys in Winter 2012 it’s Dragons and Fire Trucks to keep them dry this winter. Look out for the co-ordinating Hatley Kids Pyjamas arriving at The Merrygoround later this month.

Huge selection of Kids Hats & Gloves at The Merrygoround

It’s fair to say Winter is really on it’s way now and most of us are digging out our hats and gloves once again.  Are you kids all set for what is predicted to be another cold, and probably snowy winter?

The Merrygoround has a great selection of kids hats, gloves and scarves from the great Dutch brand, Barts.  If you don’t know about Barts check out their website  Since 1986 Barts have been surprising us every year with their own unique collection of winter accessories.  If you are looking for hats and gloves, the Barts collection must be one of the best high quality, yet stylish collections available for Winter 2011.

Great Selection of Kids Jackets at The Merrygoround

It’s that time again when we all dig out the kids coats and jackets, hoping they will fit for another year. If you’ve found that last years’ jacket is just a bit too small to see your little one through the long winter months, then a visit to The Merrygoround is a must!

Once again, we have a great selection of Ticket to Heaven functional outerwear for babies, boys and girls. If you don’t know the brand, Ticket to Heaven, are a Danish outerwear brand which specialises in high-quality waterproof and breathable jackets and coats in fun and funky colours and designs. We’ve been selling Ticket jackets for more than 5 years now, as we really genuinely believe these jackets hard to beat!

You don’t have to very old to experience Ticket to Heaven! The collection starts at 6 – 9 months. TheBaby Suit by Ticket to Heaven is an all-in-one snowsuit which is totally water and wind proof and breathable. The snowsuit is 100% nylon with a soft fleece lining and poly-padding lining for extra warmth. There’s a zip fastening which runs from the chin right down to the toes on one leg making dressing for the cold as easy as pie! Cuffs at wrists and ankles turn over so there’s no need to worry about mitts and bootees – all making busy mum and dad’s lives easier. Finally, of course you can machine wash and tumble dry these snowsuits so they can be worn every single day of the winter.

Our favourite boys jacket this winter is the Herbert Jacket. Fab bright red colour, it has detachable sleeves, a detachable hood and if the boys don’t like the faux fur, it’s even detachable too! Totally waterproof and breathable, the Herbert Jacket from Ticket to Heaven will ensure they boys are warm and dry. Team it up with the Barts Ski Gloves in Black and they’re ready to hit the slopes….

One of the things we dislike most at The Merrygoround is dull childrens clothes. Well, no-one can say this coat is dull….! The Helle Puffball Coat from Ticket to Heaven is the brightest coat we’ve seen in a long while! Bold flowers in shades of pink and red adorn this practical and functional coat. What more could you ask for?! The hood can be detached, as can the faux fur. Pretty A-line shape sits just above the knee and the hem has a girly puff-ball effect.
