Polarn O. Pyret Review

Now that the ice has started to appear on the cars in the morning and the crispy leaves are blowing about in the gusts of Autumn wind, it's time to look at your child's wardrobe and stock up with warmer clothing.

Polarn O. Pyret got in touch and asked if we would like to receive some stylish clothing from their new season clothes collection, which was perfect as the Mini Mes really do need a few more items.

A few days later a lovely package arrived with goodies for both Minxy and Jamster.

Jamster was sent a dark green padded child's coat worth £79. Just upon unwrapping it I felt that it would keep Jamster really warm and that it was great quality by its weight. It has a soft fleece-like lining to keep Jamster snug and the hood is lined and adjustable for extra warmth too. The zip is quite chunky which is ideal for smaller hands to do up themselves at school. As the hem and cuffs are both adjustable it provides a superb, comfortable fit that prevents the cold getting in.

We took it out for an evening walk around the nearby fields and woods....

The reflective parts are especially great for this time of year when they dark hits earlier in the evening. The two zipped pockets to the outside and one netted pocket inside are great for storing bits and bobs like his wallet or toys that he takes on his travels. The zip cover makes the coat look smart and helps to prevent chafing and there is neck and chin protection which is soft against his skin.

From a parents point of view this coat is well worth the money as it really keeps your child warm and I feel as though it will last several years as it's quite durable, if he doesn't grow too much! If it gets grubby, as boys do, it can be popped into the washing machine. The sizing is spot on for his age too. They pretty much thought of everything with this product!

Minxy received a Russian Doll T-shirt to create a lovely layered look - this will be available to purchase from October. Initially I thought it was a little quirky and wouldn't be to Minxy's taste (she loves everything pink!) but she really likes being able to wear it over her vest tops, slighlty off the shoulder. The fabric is soft and it has come up well after a few washes already.

What Minxy says "I like that it's quite baggy and it's very soft and comfortable to wear."

Polarn O. Pyret is a Swedish company with 15 shops within the UK and an online store. You can have a look at their products here:
