Minene clothing launches in style, with #mineneslittlehelper and her cute frilly romper

We are super excited to launch the beginning of Minene Fashion in the UK – little fashion for little ones!

The high summer collection, Pretty Little things, launched earlier this month and we have had an amazing response! The clothing is based on vintage designs and made from a range of fabrics including cottons, lycra, lace and more.

Pretty Frilly Romper

Pretty Frilly Romper – white floral with pink bows

The best part about all of this, a part from putting our stamp on the fashion industry of course…..

I got to spend 3 lovely sunny days in the garden with my favourite little poppet, Miss Emmie, AKA #mineneslittlehelper . She has come a long way since her first modelling experience, I think it was the I love Mummy muslins and she was just 3 months old!!

She wore all of the outfits so well, but then again I am bias! We blew bubbles, bounced on the tramp, played on the swings and climbed up the ladder to the hut; all in the name of getting the best photo! and having a little fun too 😉

My favourite photo was Emmie in her Pretty Floral Romper. Both designs were just made for her! They are pretty, just like Emmie, yet hard wearing and durable! They survived the play ground, the tramp and rolling in the grass!

I managed to get a more demure image of her, after all the rough and tumble of the day! Although, the leopard print bows tells the real story…. 😉

Minene’s summer collection is available online now, we only have a few of each size so be sure to snap up anything you like the look of!

I will be sure to share more outfits over the next few weeks, like all clothing it is so much easier to see the full look when it is on a little person….or big!

Enjoy your heatwave Thursday! xx

Minene’s #minenemodelhunt works a treat, for new girls pyjamas!

At Minene, we love thinking out side of the box. Whether we are designing new products, coming up with fun gift ideas or thinking of ways to show off our products, we like try new things.

When looking at the cute new children’s pyjamas for summer 2014, we were exactly the same! Of course we have our beautiful Emmie in the office, the perfect model, who could have put on the pyjamas and smiled for the camera, but that’s what we did last season….so it would not do!

We had a brainstorm and decided to take to trusty Facebook. We wanted to see if any of you thought you had the perfect little Minene model, who could show off the gorgeous Minene Girls Pyjamas….and you certainly answered! Now we would like to introduce you to the special little ladies who became our 2014 Summmer Pyjama Models 🙂

Introducing the lovely Isabella, she is 2 years old and a cheeky wee natural in front of the camera, already!

Little Isabella is looking gorgeous in this pair of Minene Girl’s Pyjamas

Other little ladies, who we will introduce you to in more detail as the week goes on, include……

Minene’s pretty little pyjama models

 

Our new season’s girls pyjamas are on trend with a light cotton swing top and matching shorts, with frill and bow detail. These lovely pyjamas are 100% soft cotton, available in ages 1-5 years of age and come lovingly gift packaged in a Minene organza gift bag.

We will be bring you more #minenemodelhunt models over the next few days! And of course, we haven’t forgotten the boys! They will be popping up in their cute pyjamas, too! xx

Minene are giving you a sneaky look behind the scenes….

You may have noticed that Minene have been a little quite of late, less tweets, facebook updates and blog! Well there is a reason… we have just finished launching some fabulous new products for SS2014 and AW2015 at the Harrogate Nursery Fair.

The show was only for trade customers, however we thought we would give you a look at the stand and some of the gorgeous new products that will be headed your way very soon!!

We were able to show off our amazing new Pushchair Accessories range, these included Reversible Liner & Strap sets, which will be in stock from mid May. We have beautiful florals, pretty polka dots, cheeky checks and stripes on offer!

Pushchair Liner, Stroller Liner - With Straps

From pretty florals to fresh checks & stripes. The liners will give any pushchair an injection of summer colour

The new Ella Changing Bag was also on show, seen above in the vibrant Red, our new Changing Bags had a lot of positive comments! Like the Layla Changing Bag, it can be worn as a backpack, shoulder bag or attached to the stroller. It has gorgeous colourful lining and a range of useful goodies inside. 

Minene Chnaging Bag- Ella Bag- Child Bags

The stunning Ella Changing Bag in 5 colours; aswell as a little look at the new child bags …

 

That is enough for today…check out our next blog for the new storage, baby bath supports and the award winning Mi 1st Booster 🙂

Have a lovely weekend xx

Painting Fun AND Giveaway!

Our school holidays have kicked off here, and each day is now a flurry of activities to keep the children all amused. One of their most favourite things to do is good old fashioned Painting.

painting_apron_with_paints

I know many parents worry about the mess when I mention the word paint, but honestly it doesn’t have to be messy at all. I invested in a plastic easel which is wipe clean, and I always use a plastic sheet underneath. I found the best plastic mats are actually the disposable tablecloths that are left over from the kids birthday parties. If you are still worried then why not take the painting outside.

I love letting the children loose outside with paints, it really is great for letting get messy. I also make sure they are wearing an apron to help protect their clothes. Of course the aprons we use are the Minene Apron which comes included with paints and a paintbrush which fit rather lovely into the plastic pocket on the front.

IMG_0171The sides fasten with velcro and are adjustable meaning this will fit a range of children from small to big.

You can buy the Painting Apron over on the Minene website, RRP is £12, but if you have a good look through the colours some are as little as £8!

Now here is your chance to win one for your own budding artist!

Simply fill in the rafflecopter widget below for your chance to win! Terms and conditions can be found on the widget.  UK residents only.

Celebrating Paddling Pool Weather

Last year we just didn’t seem to get many sunny days where a paddling pool was needed, but this year we seem to have an abundance of them and paddling pools are selling out everywhere! I hunted high (and low) for one, and can categorically state that if you are after one then check your local supermarkets, as this is where I picked my family sized one from with success.

Kids of all ages love the padding pool, but here are a few tips of ways to make it better:

Fill up your pool with water first thing in the morning, it then has all day to heat up so it isn’t too cold for the tiny ones.

Use some form of cover, this is vital I think. It stops bugs and leaves getting in at night and helps keep it fresh for the little people.

Are the kids bored after a few days? Liven it up and add a bag of balls (like the type you use for the ball pools), they will love having something new to do in there and of course it gives them a good clean too!

Have towels on standby. One on the floor is great for people to stand on, it helps stop grass getting into the pool from wet feet when they decide they wanna jump back in. Towels on standby to wrap the kids up in also fabulous, like our Cuddly Bunny Towel which is snug and absorbent and has the cute factor too!
