Review: Powell Craft Kids Clothing

I really love unusual clothes for my kids. Anything a bit different always catches my eye and if I'm truly honest, both my kids have better clothes than me half the time as I can't stop buying for them! It's for that reason that my heart sang with great pleasure when Powell Craft agreed to let me review a couple of items from their collection for the kids.

Here's a little bit about Powell Craft first of all: "Powell Craft Ltd has been a family-run business since 1962. The product range has grown and diversified from wooden toys in the 1960s through to decorative homewares and scented gifts and the introduction of beautifully hand-finished cotton nightwear. The last decade has seen the launch of a wide selection of childrenswear, babywear, nursery accessories and the hugely popular rag dolls."

Logan and Harlow were both sent an item of clothing each from the new Autumn/Winter collection which was very kind of Powell Craft. Logan received one of their gorgeous new rain macs and Harlow got her hands on a pair of super soft cord dungarees. The A/W 2015 collection features lots of different items with the lovely cord clothing also coming in long and short sleeve dresses, skirts, trousers and coats with adorable animal appliqué designs. There's a large range of knitwear too such as fleece lined hooded jumpsuits, cardigans, dresses, hooded tops, babygrows and even pram and cot blankets in both boys, girls and unisex designs. So tons of options to choose from for your precious little ones.

We'll start with Logan's rain mac first. When I first laid eyes on this coat myself I knew it would be a winner with Logan too. I picked out the Robot design for him but you could also choose from; transport vehicles, vintage tractors, vintage plane and nautical for boys. There are of course some lovely prints for girls too so please do check them out on the Powell Craft Boutique website. The robot design is very cool with lots of little retro style tin robots in red, blue and grey dotted all over a dark blue background. It really is rather striking and Logan has had a few complimenting words when we're out and about regarding his coat. There's two pockets at the front which fasten with a popper stud and the front of the jacket closes with 5 popper studs as well. It's quite easy for Logan to do himself although he's a lazy boy sometimes so Mummy has to do it! The rain mac comes with a hood of course and the inside is lined with a lovely red sort of toweling type material which helps prevent Logan from sweating. He's had rain macs before that haven't been lined and he gets all sweaty in them which he doesn't like so this lining is perfect. All in all it's a lovely jacket which seems to be true to size. Logan is in size 6-7 year clothes and I received the 6-7 year rain mac which fits perfectly with room to last. You can get your hands on one for your kids from size 1-2 years to 6-7 years at a price of £34.

Harlow's super soft cord dungarees are super cute as well with an appliqued fox design on the front and little vines down one leg. The foxes chest has a flowery pattern which matches the buttons and turn ups on the legs of the dungarees. They're super cute and only make your baby look even more adorable if that's even possible. As you can see from the photos these dungarees look fab and matched with a long sleeved top for winter and a little headband they're perfect. The cord material used is quite thin which meant it was easy for Harlow to crawl around and maneuver in them without a problem. They don't seem to crease easily which is a bonus but the only down side for me is that they don't have poppers/buttons etc in between the legs so when doing a nappy change you have to take the whole dungarees off. You do get used to it after a few nappy changes, it's just a little bit inconvenient is all. We can live with it though since they're so nice. The size that Harlow received was 6-12 months and I'm sure weight wise they'll do her till then however she is quite long so not sure if they'll last in the legs. As long as she's comfy in them though so we'll have to wait and see. As well as this fox design there's a whole bunch of other cute designs to choose from in sizes 6-12 months up to 4-5 years at a price of £26.

Overall two fabulous products that are stylish, different and easy for the kids to wear. Logan gets tons of compliments in his rain mac and enjoys wearing it which is fab as he can be funny about certain fabrics with his autism. Harlow also gets lots of compliments in her little dungarees and they make an excellent change from wearing leggings or dresses all of the time. Pricing seems fair for what you get and we've had these clothes for over a month now and both are going strong with no damage or fading in the wash etc. We're happy all round.

Mummy's rating 8/10
Logan's rating - 10/10
Harlow's rating - 10/10

I love buying clothes for my kids too - it gets a bit addictive I think! I've never heard of Powell Craft before, I'll have to go and have a look now because those dungarees are just adorable! #triedtested

It's so addictive isn't it. I prefer buying for the kids than buying for myself haha. Yeah the dungarees are super cute and they have so many different colours :)
