Get the kids looking good for less
Kids can be difficult to shop for. Not only do they grow out of stuff really, really fast, making clothing them, potentially, very expensive, but kids fashion evolves at a startling rate, and kids feel an unbelievable amount of pressure to "fit in" even the younger ones.
So, as a parent, what can you do? Thankfully, there are a number of outlets and brand that really "get" the difficulties of children's fashion, and develop and maintain product lines that are wallet-friendly, comfortable, robust enough to handle the day-to-day wear on busy young bodies, and, most important of all, fashionable enough that your child will love wearing getting dressed in the morning.
CLOTHING - BIG W
As Australia's premier discount department store, BIG W has a bit of everything for your kids seasonal shirts, shorts, pants, skirts and jumpers, sleepwear, underwear, socks, and more. The constantly evolving line means that with every visit there will be new designs and fashions to try, while BIG W also maintains a full range of more neutral "standard" clothing.
Most importantly, BIG W's buyers work hard to ensure that all product lines are cost effective. Standard tops and pants are often under $20 sometimes even under $10. At those prices, kids can outgrow their clothes quickly and you can replace them without breaking the budget.
BIG W is also a fun place to shop for kids. As a department store, it also carries electronics, toys, and other products that can make a shopping trip a lot of fun, and is the perfect way to get an otherwise reluctant child to tag along. As a one-stop location for all the clothing that your child will need, it's hard to look past BIG W.
SHOES - WILLIAMS
