Review: House of Fraser Childrenswear

As a first time mum I’ve found that my outlook on things such as shopping has completely changed, before I became pregnant I would treat myself on a monthly basis from my favourite department stores whether it be going to a makeup concession or my favourite brand of clothing, I would shop! Since being pregnant and becoming a mum I’ve had a few shopping trips and each time I have failed to buy anything for myself, not because I can’t buy for myself anymore but because I just don’t want anything! However I always find things for baby T.

When House of Fraser got in touch and asked if we would like to review their childrenswear I got a little excited, more baby clothes to browse!

I chose three items for Baby T from their range of 0-3 month clothing, he is already starting to fill out his newborn clothing and I couldn’t find an in between size. Upon receiving the items it would seem he also has a long way to go until he can start filling 0-3 but it happens fast from what I’ve been told.

Pumpkin Patch boys hiking check jacket £10 in sale RRP £25

The first item I chose is this lovely check jacket by Pumpkin Patch, T hasn’t got any coats or jackets yet as he spends his days bundled up in his carrycot with blankets if we venture outside, a nice jacket for when he’s a bit bigger was perfect. The material and quality of the product is superb and feels like something that would last a long time, that is if babies didn’t grow so fast!


Pumpkin Patch Raccoon Dungarees £9.99 in sale RRP £22

These Raccoon print dungarees also by Pumpkin Patch were too cute to pass up, theirs only so many years when even a child can pull off Dungarees so lets make the most of it!


Kite stripy cardigan £9.99 in sale RRP £25

This rainbow stripe knit by Kite is a really nice soft material with cute little elbow patches, how handsome is tiny T going to look in this?

“Mum do I really need this much room to grow?”

Stores such as House of Fraser to me mean makeup concessions and pretty dresses, high-end designer goods, not babies. When we were asked to choose some items from their children’s range to the value of £30 I was amazed at what they had and what I could get with our budget. The items I selected were in sale at the time but even at their full RRP they didn’t differ to prices found in any other store and were really affordable.

Although T clearly has some growing to do the items we chose will soon fit him, both the quality and style of the items are brilliant. House of Fraser had never sprung to mind when thinking of children’s clothing until now, they’re certainly somewhere that I will look for future purchases as we have years of dressing this little man to come.

Have you ever shopped at House of Fraser for your little ones or have one specific store that you rely on for all of your children’s purchases? I’d love to hear about your hidden baby buying gems!
