Introducing Bright Star Kids - Personalised Clothing and Goods For Children - A Review and Giveaway

How many times have you visited your local children's wear store and struggled to find clothing that is both attractive and well priced? ("Every time!" I hear you yell!)

Over the years I have taken my kids to birthday parties or outings having dressed them with much pride and care, only to arrive at the destination to find another child wearing the exact same top or coat and feel my heart sink with the effort.

Countless times, I have visited big department stores and smaller boutiques and been disappointed with the offerings on the racks. There is no individuality; no spice and very little spark.

How do you make your child stand out from the crowd in a market drenched with the same?

If you're a Mum to boys, you will definitely agree that there is a huge lack of choice available for them in particular. I really don't understand why. It simply needn't be.

Have you thought of giving your child clothing with personality before? (I'll bet you have!)Personalisation? I am happy to report Bright Star Kids are a company who have swooped in to save us parents from the frustration of so little choice and the embarrassment of 'duplicate' situations, and all without the ouchy price tag of designer wear.

Bright Star Kids have been around for some time now and you may have heard of them before (or recognise their distinctive logo). They are a one-stop shop for all things personalised for children. You can buy everything from bag tags to name labels for your child's school books and even pencils and nursery wall decals. If you have a child in care, kinder or school, this is one place you should definitely visit time and time again to purchase all of your requirements to ensure your valuables return home safely at the end of each day.

Even if you have heard of Bright Star Kids before, you may not have been aware that they just so happen to specialise in personalised clothing too. We were lucky enough to receive these gorgeous goodies in the post recently to try out on my youngest little Boo.

I happen to love dressing my kids in clothing with cutesy slogans so having the opportunity to select these cute pickings was so much fun. There are loads of designs for both boys and girls to choose from on their website and with the inclusion of your child's name as an option on many of them, you need never sulk over the lack of originality in children's fashion ever again. If you are a parent of multiples or same sex kids in similar age brackets, you will love the ease of sorting named items on wash day too!

Quality-wise, the tees and singlets on offer are available in a beautiful organic cotton which is smooth and warm and kind on delicate little skins - especially good if your child suffers eczema. Celeste was instantly smitten with her Tee and almost seemed to sense that this was something extra special. (Possibly due to the fact that Mummy was aiming her camera at it?)
Nah! She just loved the girly design...and the attention.

...You most certainly are my little Missy!
Celeste's Tee design can be found here and is priced at $24.95.
Available in sizes 2-8.
These Tees are washable in a gentle cold cycle and are not recommended for tumble drying so they are a great choice for the environment too. (They can be ironed on a warm setting to keep them looking smart.)
The sizes are generous too. Celeste is wearing a size 2 Tee even though she is only aged one. She's a slender little thing and I am guessing this will still fit when she's approaching three. I always like to buy larger sizes anyway so that I can maximise wear and for something as cute as personalised clothing, I suggest you do too. 
Celeste's singlet, (featuring a slogan I am in full agreement with: I'm cute, Mum's cute, Dad's lucky! :D), is constructed in the same great quality fabric and retails for $19.95 and can be found here. The singlet has a good length to it so it tucks in well and doesn't ride up as easily as others.
There are gorgeous gift sets for babies which include a printed onesie, bib and hat priced at just $34.95. Singlets and Tees are available in a range of sizes from 00 right up to big kids sizes (8), all featuring the most chic of fashion icons; from moustaches to chevrons plus popular kids choices like owls and bears. There's even special occasion clothing like birthday numbers and milestones such as 'Big Brother or Sister' shirts. These are brilliant designer gift ideas for any little special person and at low cost. I am loving it!
From the time I placed my selection on the Bright Star Kids website, I had my order promptly within around 10 days or so. There are many great offers available on their easy to navigate website too so have a little squiz to see what you might be interested in and maybe pick up a few gorgeous named school essentials while you are there.

  1. A School Value Label Kit is what I DESPERATELY NEED, to keep all my kids belongings from disappearing.
    The Iron on Labels will keep the kids jumpers from going astray, or their shoes from mysteriously walking away.
    The pencil labels will be a hit too,
    their pencils with brightly coloured labels that will set them apart in the classroom.
    A Bright Star Kids School Value Pack is perfect you see, to save our hip pocket, keep all our belongings intact and save our sanity. Cathy Stone

  2. I would buy Miss nearly 3 a birthday t-shirt and a backpack for preschool as its her birthday in 2 weeks! :)

  3. I have never dressed in personal stuff but would LOVE to - to talk about their personalities would be cool!

  4. I would buy something personalised. Like the owl t-shirts, so unique and classical

  5. Cheryl M - I definately need a cute slogan T for my little man! so many gorgeous designs to choose from!

  6. I would buy name labels for my boy. After mixing up shoes and losing bed sheet in preschool, I start to realize how important these small labels are.

  7. I would buy my friends little girl a backpack for when she starts school next year.

  8. Yes I find girls clothes offer much more variety but boy clothes often look the same. Those tees are really cute!

  9. Oh these look soo cute! I just spent the day doing the old fashioned "iron-on image transfers" to plain t-shirts today as the girls wanted to customise their own 'look'. But this sounds like a much easier (and less hands on) option!

  10. I find it really hard finding cute clothing as I have a little boy. There is so much lovely stuff for girls!
    I would get the Super Hero Personalised t-shirt (with the little boy in the superhero outfit). I would get this as my beautiful son is my hero. He was born with meconium aspiration syndrome and was born not breathing. However, after 10 days in the wonderful special care nursery he made a full recovery. The t-shirt is fun and brightly coloured and as my son's name is Reuben (often misspelt as Ruban or Rueben) then people will have no excuse for spelling his name wrong!!

    1. Congratulations Libby, you are a winner! I will be in touch shortly :D

  11. !!! I'd steer clear of the white because my kids are hopeless grubs, but I love the elephant Big Sis and Little Bro T-Shirts! It would be so cute to send them to daycare for their photo's wearing them

  12. I would LOVE to win this. My best friend is having her second baby at the end of next month, and I would love to get a matching pair of Big Sister and Little Sister personalised shirts made as a gift so both bubs and Big Sister get a little something and Big Sister doesn't miss out. I think I would get them the one with the big & little elephants, they are super cute. I may even have to get a matching pair for my girls too!
    (also visiting for #teamIBOT)

  13. Soooo much great stuff on that site. I'd have to go with the tshirts though. Just like Kylie above, I'd love to see the girls in a big sister and little sister tee. If I don't win I might just have to buy them anyway!! :)

  14. Big sister and little sister would be perfect for my 7 year old and new born neices:-)

  15. I would choose the owl school bag and lunch bag they are just behootaful

  16. I would love a label value kit and the oh so cute owl skiphop backpack now that my little miss is at Daycare!

  17. My little boy is almost 2 and I have been struggling for gift ideas - especially since he is the third child and a boy! The personalised t-shirts look amazing, he would totally suit the Stars and Stunts or Boombox clothing. I also have my eye on the Dotty Wall Decals to snazzy up his wall. Thanks for the chance.

  18. Love the Jungle Height Chart!

  19. I'ld love some wall art for my little girls room. Her walls are still bare and we have had her in our lives for 10 months now.. slack I know!!

  20. My little one has just turned one,
    Personalised clothing would be lots of fun!
    Giggles and smiles are guaranteed I'm sure,
    From everyone once we walk out the door!
    So please pick us, the clothes we adore,
    You simply can't buy them in any old store!

  25. Dog Luggage from Skip Hop would make packing for a weekend trip away,to have his own luggage would be awesome

  26. I will choose Regular Tags Clothing Labels for my son's school clothes and Kitchen Essentials labels for using in the pantry.

  27. It's amazing I first saw the black plain shirt saying "I do my own stunts" and I thought perfect for my child. Then I came across the "Hunter" t-shirt with the stereo on it, OMG perfect for my nephew who is a DJ and has just had a boy named Hunter, it's like these are all made just for me!
