Childrensalon review

With summer well and truly here, we were lucky enough to be contacted by Childrensalon to try out a few of their summer clothes for the children.

What is Childrensalon?

Childrensalon began back in the 1030s when Sybil MacGowan met a French jazz pianist, Rene Harriman. After having a child together Sybil set up sewing circles for ladies who wanted to make their children beautiful clothes. By the 1060s, Sybil opined her first shop ‘The Childrens Salon’ in Tunbridge Wells. Sybil’s daughter, Michele, follows in her footsteps in the 1980s and in 1999, Michele and George (Mama Mia illustrator), create ‘The Childrens Salon’ website. Now called ‘Childrensalon’, the business is going from strength to strength selling beautiful clothes so some of the finest designers.

Today, the company have over 300 ‘family members’ helping customers in over 160 countries and Michele and George’s dream has come true with ‘Childrensalon’ being one of the best loved childrenswear shops.

What was in our box?

When our lovely box arrived from Childrensalon, the kids were excited to see what had been picked out for them. They instantly fell in love with their Mayoral cotton logo cap and insisted on wearing them right away.

Both caps are made from soft, sustainable cotton and come with an adjustable strap on the back. We love that these are machine washable at 30°. Although we haven’t needed to wash them yet, there is plenty of time through the summer to need to pop it on a quick was and hopefully have it looking as good as new.


Next up we had a selection of t-shirts from both Calvin Klein Jeans and Stella McCartney. All three t-shirts were so soft and snuggly. They have been worn a few times now and have washed up really well. There is no sign of bobbling or fading on the lettering or picture.

Made from soft, stretchy jersey cotton means the kids stay comfortable but look great too. Benjamin loved the sunshine image on the Stella McCartney tee and it went perfectly with his cheeky smile. Isabella, being a little older, really loved the subtleness of the other two tops from Calvin Klein. Her favourite was the lavender ice boxy t-shirt which she can’t get out of the wash quickly enough in her opinion.

Large selection

With a large selection of designer clothes, including an outlet section and sale to get up to 60% off your top brands, there’s going to be so much for you to pick from! Helpfully sectioned into baby, boy, girl, teen etc, you can easily navigate the website. I love the search function which allows you to find specific items quickly.

Overall we love all our items from Childrensalon and can’t thank them enough for picking some real winners this summer. Why not pop over to the summer shop and see what you find!
