Children are always growing. I think my youngest grows a bit every time I take my eyes off of her. Although I wasn’t expecting them to stay small forever, I am always surprised how quickly they change sizes in clothing. I also am surprised at the lack of versatility in their wardrobes, so I’ve been trying to focus on selecting more adaptable pieces since I now have two girls and I’m on a tight budget. The biggest challenge is one was a summer baby and other was a winter baby, which means several items we saved have been impractical for my second daughter. My next problem is durability. Some items just don’t hold up to toddler play and barely make it through my first child, let alone my second. With those issues in mind, I also want clothing that is cute, comfortable, organic and still affordable. Heavy wish list, but Nohi Kids has delivered.
We create comfortable, high quality, and eco-friendly clothes that appeal to both kids and their parents. We are the favorite dress or tee shirt that your child won’t take off.
I have to admit the first thing that drew me to Nohi Kids was their plethora of bird/owl prints. I am a sucker for these items and have my fair share of children’s clothing that fits weird but is too cute to get rid of. Needless to say, I’m a bit more cautious now then I was as a first time mom. With a bit of apprehension, I chose the Peacock Girls Dress in Raspberry. I mean, look how cute the graphic is!
Yes, I was sold when I saw that bird, but the versatility of this item was the other main factor. Of course, this is a cute dress, but it also can be used as a tunic top later on. For my second child, I can easily add a cute pair of leggings and a long sleeve shirt to adjust for winter use. This item runs true to size, so my oldest daughter has been wearing it as a dress for now.
I have been very impressed with how vibrant the colors are and I love that they use low-impact, water based inks. The material itself is a combination of certified organic cotton, fiber from bamboo, and a wee bit of spandex. I have mentioned in previous reviews the importance of choosing organic cotton vs. cotton, but you can click here for a recap on the differences. Bamboo, although there is some debate whether it is truly eco-friendly, is definitely renewable and sustainable. Bamboo fiber is also very breathable and naturally protects your skin from UV rays. The tiny bit of spandex is added to make sure the article of clothing will hold up during all the washings your child’s new favorite tee/dress will receive.
The fabric combination above creates a unique softness that still has a bit of a playful stretch. You can see that my daughter could easily play without the dress riding up or flipping out. I love that the design and fit is modest yet modern and is perfectly suitable for young girls to wear.
My daughter has worn this dress several times and the color hasn’t faded. The neckline is nice and stretchy and easy to put over my tots head. Although my daughter can untie the sash in the back, it isn’t too long and doesn’t turn into a tripping hazard when she does so. My daughter has repeatedly pulled at the ties and I don’t see any de-threading or tearing in the fabric. The seams throughout the garment are nice and flat. The graphic has remained intact and it doesn’t have any smudgy areas. This dress has been perfect for play and work…well my daughter thinks she is helping me work.
Overall, I am very pleased with the Peacock Dress and I definitely want to add more dress/tunic options to my daughters’ wardrobes. I love the high quality of the Nohi Kids clothing line and they also have unique, fun boy items as well!
I love this little crane tee shirt!
Of course I love these owls too!
Instead of stressing about your child outgrowing their clothes, take the opportunity to “celebrate small” and add a few choice pieces into their wardrobe. Let’s be honest, once they have a favorite tee, the important thing is not how many they have, but that it is going to hold up to the extensive play and washing that it will soon need to endure. Plus Nohi Kids is offering a special 25% off code (see below), so it’s the perfect time to pick up some new duds for your little ones.
You can purchase the Peacock Girl Dress in Raspberry for $39.50 on their website.
