– Funky animal character clothes for Junior to wear and love!
Is your marvellous Mini more Gucci-Gucci-Goo than Coochie-Coochie-Coo? While some people wear their heart on their sleeve, with the cute and colourful new clothes from Olive and Moss, your little fashionista can wear her personality on her t-shirt.
If your tot is a fully paid up member of the nocturnal club, Otto the Owl will be a protective pal.
Loud and boisterous, but deep down a cuddle monster? Then buddy up with Louis the Lion.
With six other friends completing the set, you could even let your little monkey choose her own favourite friend!
Achingly cool, this rolling (olive) stone gathers no moss.
What Mini Says:
I’m putting the “Mini” in the Menagerie!

– Summer Swimwear for the Small
Sun. Smile. Splash. Swim. *Scream! *
What to wear?
Don’t swim upstream on this one. Make life easy for yourself (and your pocket) by going online. We love DPAM, a French children’s clothing chain, for affordable, stylish and fun clothing that will last about as long as it’s needed. With cozzies starting from €7, this is hardly investment dressing. And they deliver to the UK.
*Sigh.* You’re off the hook.
What Mini says:
My favourite stroke is the crawl.

– Funky new online gift shop
The stakes are not as high as on the TV show, but when it comes to buying the perfect gift for a new baby, it’s still an anxiety-provoking task. And you’re something of an apprentice.
So, make sure your ending is neither sugary nor schmaltzy with the latest offering from that emporium of hip, Firebox.com. Introduced last week, Firetots is a range of cool gifts for under-3s, which in the world of baby and toddler gift-giving is bound to leave the competition in the dust.
Afterall, you don’t need a genie on a T-shirt to tell you that Baby’s Got Talent: We love their lift-the-flap fortune telling tees which foresee a great future for the infant. You’d Do Anything? Give your little super man a super snapsuit, a truly heroic babygrow with cape. (Nappy changes in phone box optional).
Wait a minute! We’re in the wrong reality show. What we mean to say is:
You’re fired [up with great gift ideas]!’
What Mini says:
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s my multi-talented mum.
The Super Snapsuit (£14.95) and Mysterio Baby Fortune Telling Tees (£9.95) are available from Firebox.com.
– Buying Bonpoint online
Lila’s mummy seems to enjoy her celebrity. Wherever she goes, she attracts a lot of attention. In fact, I’m beginning to think that she may be a bit of an attention-seeker. Maybe that’s what being a supermodel is all about.
She took Lila to a lovely London location last week to do a little shopping. It was a real hullabaloo. So many photographers, it reminded me of when my granny comes to play.
You see, Lila and her mummy heart Bonpoint, the luxury French boutique for babies and children, with its beautifully crafted clothing and exquisite, simple styles. But if Lila’s mummy had been a little more (tech-) savvy she could have avoided the traffic, the crowds and the paparazzi by shopping online. Little Fashion Gallery is the exclusive online retailer of Bonpoint. Click here to see the sensational range of clothes. And, as any e-baby will tell you, you also get to experience the excellent customer and delivery services offered by Little Fashion Gallery.
What Moi says:
With Mini, it’s usually blah-blah-blah (and da-da-da) but for once she has a bon … I mean, good … point.
– Children (&) Baby Sample Sales
Hurry! Quickly! Tell your mummy to get moving. We’ve heard about two sample sales that will help keep you in the style you aspire to become accustomed to.

Or, if your mummy needs a little bit of time to get her cute a*$ into gear, then try the Kent & Carey sample sale at the end of April.
