I am a huge dungarees fan (on children, I might add. Not so much adults). They look just adorable on both girls and boys. I grew up wearing them myself, and think that they are perfect for mucking around in.
Needless to say, when I spotted this wonderful site called Dotty Dungarees, I was instantly hooked. Set up by Alice Goldsmith and Georgie Parr in 2013, and inspired by their own brood, this lovely company prides itself on using only the softest materials in an array of bright colours. What I particularly love about their dungarees is that you can turn them up, so they last a whole year. I will definitely be investing in some for the boys.
On another note, I noticed that their website has been illustrated by the super talented Alice Peto, which led me to look at her painting site again, www.paintedbyalice.com. This gorgeous penguin print below would make the loveliest present for any lucky child, as would any of her prints. And don’t even get me started on her beautiful penguin ovenware.
Mstr L has already been to see Father Christmas, and has specifically asked him for a ‘goopy machine’. I have no idea what this is, and neither did Father C. We actually exchanged looks of bewilderment.
I am hoping that this V Tech, voice activated, Mega T Rex will dispel all notions of goopy machines. This (ridiculously cool) toy transforms from a T Rex into a construction vehicle and actually follows your command. I’m not joking.
