We’re brand ambassadors for JJ Jiraffe

When Alice was born one of my friends passed on a lovely bundle of baby clothes which included a brilliant pair of multi-coloured leggings. Alice has worn the leggings continually since we gt them receiving lots of compliments from people in the process. They wash brilliantly and (I think) make her look like a mini rock star. The company who made them are called JJ Jiraffe and so when Vicky who handmakes the clothes started looking for brand ambassadors we jumped at the chance to apply.

Luckily both Theo and Alice were selected and so we’ll be helping Vicky over the coming months by promoting her lovely clothes and sharing a few photos of the kids wearing them. Alice was first to receive her clothes bundle. Inside it was this fabulous rainbow coloured jersey dress…

….Along with some amazing black and white dinosaur leggings. You may have seen the email which circulated on social media recently from a mother who wrote to a store asking why she couldn’t get dinosaur print clothes for her little girl? After that email Vicky decided to create her own dinosaur themed garments for girls and tracked down a lovely monochrome fabric which she now makes into leggings and dresses.

Our third item was a scoop fabric bib. When we started weaning we bought a hard plastic bib from the supermarket which split after a few weeks use, I really didn’t want to buy another and have the same problem again, so I was intrigued to see if JJ Jiraffe’s fabric one would do the job. We took it away on our recent boat holiday in France and it worked brilliantly. The placing of the poppers on the back of the bib keeps the scoop open (far better than the rubber travel ones you can buy) and it can be wiped clean or washed in a machine. It also folds properly flat for travel.

How lovely to see clothes which are not gender coloured. I love bright colours for children and absolutely will not make/buy clothes/quilts in blue or pink or lavender.
So pleased to have finally found you again. Helen in France

I so agree Helen, there is always room in the world for more brightly coloured clothing, for children…or adults!
