Kinderstuff Review and Giveaway!

I've been taking a break on product reviews/giveaways lately to be able to focus a bit on my new business, plan for the Great Cloth Diaper Change, and spend time with my family. But, when I was approached by this company about reviewing their product, I couldn't resist. It was such a great concept that I had to spread the word. 

The company is KinderStuff. It's a kids clothing line with products made of only organic cotton and non-toxic materials. According to their website they:
 "decided to produce KinderStuff to the highest standard in German and American factories and use only the best organic cotton and non-toxic materials. This is how we make sure that everything we produce is 100% sustainable."

Wow, sounds expensive right? Wrong! They deal direct to consumer only and have limited designs and quantities to prevent overproduction and excessive inventories. By eliminating the middleman and bringing the product right to you. You end up saving the money! Nothing on their website is over $23.00.  They only carry sizes up to 24 months at this time, but are planning on expanding their sizes and designs over the next six months. I can't wait to see what else this company comes up with!

So what do you do with these awesome clothes once your child outgrows them? Take them to a consignment shop, sell them at a rummage sale for $1? Nope! You contact KinderStuff, they provide free return shipping of your worn items, and in turn give you a discount towards your next purchase of sustainable clothing! Yes, your used, worn clothes are completely returnable for a future discount. Those clothes are either donated to charity, re-sold as "hand-me downs" or recycled. Now, not only are you saving time and gas by not  having to drive from store to store to try and get "top-dollar" for your used clothes, you're also helping get quality clothing into the hands of others! 

Have I gotten you excited yet? Kinderstuff wanted me to truly test their product rather than just write about it, so I did. They graciously sent me an item of my choosing for B. I picked out this cute sneaker t-shirt called "Tippy Toe" in size 18-24 months. Now, knowing B is a bit small for his age of 18 months, but I figured this shirt would shrink a bit in the wash, so I went with the larger size rather than the 12-18 months. 

Here's what I received in the mail: 


I was immediately blown away by the softness of the fabric and the vibrancy of the colors. I, oddly, couldn't wait to wash it convinced it would fade a bit or get roughed up since we don't use fabric softener. 


We're working on smiling :)
When I took it out of the wash, it looked identical to when it went in! The colors didn't change, the shirt didn't shrink, and the fabric was still super soft! I was impressed! Because B is thinner for his age I have no doubt this shirt will last through the summer and then some! I'm tempted to send it back at the end of B's use to try out their other clothes, but part of me wants to hold on to it for the next baby too! I can't wait to try out their bodysuits for the little one on the way. How cute would they be with a fluffy bum underneath and some baby legwarmers? Something this soft definitely needs to be next to a baby's skin!
