Review: Fairtrade Boys&Girls Top

Celebrate Fairtrade fortnight (25th February - 10th March) with Boys&Girls and their amazing fairtrade cotton t-shirts. Logan was lucky enough to receive one of these fab tops and we're kindly reviewing in return. 

Boys&Girls says they are: "Designed for Urban Living and Created with Care, Boys&Girls is a bright and brilliant combination of stylish, practical and affordable kids clothes made from fairly traded and organic cotton and designed with playing in mind. More parks and playgrounds than paddocks and ponies, Boys&Girls clothing is cool yet practical and perfect for today’s vibrant urban lifestyle."

The top Logan received is called the Blue Star Raglan Sleeve Top. It's very soft and obviously made from 100% organic fairtrade cotton. It has a beautiful and bright blue, green and yellow star pattern on the body and block blue for the sleeves. The other half and I agree that you can feel the quality from this top as soon as you touch it and you can even see the quality just by looking at it. Logan really liked it himself and thought it was very "comfy".

I'm a bit mad crazy mum when it comes to stitching on clothing and I'm glad to say the stitching on this top is excellent, no loose ends, wonky stitches or missing stitches in site. My mind can now rest easy. I received a size 3-4 years for Logan and it's a perfect fit with length for room to grow, I can see this top lasting him a good while.

Boys&Girls cater for kids from 1-10 years, the collection includes refreshingly easy styles for boys and girls with an emphasis on great unisex pieces that are perfect for all types of play. The top that Logan received could definitely be worn by a girl, in fact I'm sure my good friend Emma would happily put it on her daughter without question.

"Each garment is created with care and the company strives to reduce the impact of their manufacturing on the environment. Made using the highest quality GOTS certified organic cotton and featuring items which are fully Fairtrade certified and carrying the Fairtrade Cotton Mark, the garments are soft yet strong and have extra feel-good factor."

This top costs £15.00 and can be ordered directly from the Boys&Girls website. They have lots more designs and styles to choose from in their fairtrade range so please do check it out.

Overall a brilliant top, very soft and comfy for Logan to wear. It held it's shape even after being pulled left right and centre from Logan himself. The colours are bright and cheerful and the fact it's fairtrade cotton makes it all that much better. The price is more on the expensive side but you pay for what you get and because it's fairtrade the people who grow the cotton benefit from it so big thumbs up from us. Quality in this product is definitely there and I'll be purchasing fairtrade tops from Boys&Girls in future.

Mummies rating - 9/10
Logan's rating - 10/10
