Batman is a bit of a ‘thing’ in our house. Here’s the story…. I was pregnant with bub number 3, and whilst cooing over my rapidly increasing bump a friend asked my eldest lad (then aged 3) ‘Oooo, so what’s mummy having this time..?’ he replied instantly ‘Batman’. And so it continued..’What are you going to call the new baby?’ …’Batman’ etc etc…
Word spread and before I knew it everyone, and I mean absolutely everyone, referred to my baby in utero as ‘Batman’!
To continue the theme, when baby finally arrived he did so bearing many Batman related gifts for his big brothers – Boy did he get it right, his brothers were convinced he was a superhero in disguise and that’s not to mention the fact he was wearing a babygro with the Batman logo when they first met him. Alright, I may have got a little carried away…!! Unfortunately, as these things always are, it was quickly outgrown…
So you can imagine how chuffed we were to receive an upgrade in way of a pair of superb BATMAN pyjamas. The pyjamas came from Little Casa, a very cool new online boutique specialising in childrens clothing and bedding, for ages 0-6 years. I got rather excited when looking at Little Casa‘s website – not only is it very enticing with super cute graphics and brilliant shots but also because they stock some gorgeous clothes! Some brands I already know and adore, such as Beau Loves, and Rockabye Baby but also some I want (need) to acquire like Little Mashers. I was also beside myself to see a range from Paddington Bear including an authentic duffel coat – gorgeous!!
What is it?
So we received a pair of DC/BATMAN two piece pyjamas, which come in sizes from 6/12 months to 2/3 years. They are 100% cotton, so they are super soft and wash well. They are made extra comfy with skinny legged bottoms. The long sleeve top is black with a large yellow Batman symbol in the middle. The bottoms are also black and covered with loads of little Batman symbols!
What did we think?
Our pyjamas are size 6-12 months. Happiness is 9 months old and they fit him a treat. He’s not what I’d class as a small lad so I doubt he’ll still be wearing them on his 1st birthday but the sizing seems accurate. I like the fact the top is quite long too, so no chubby little belly peeking out when he wriggles around in his sleep. Also there is a shoulder popper so it’s not a struggle to get it over his larger than average head. As Batman fans we love these pyjamas and in our opinion they look really very cool. If you’re not in to your comic books, then maybe the idea of baby wearing black would be a little unusual…
Value for money?
The BATMAN pyjamas are quite expensive for baby pjs. They cost £15 plus £3.95 postage. Although I really do think they are fab, this is more than I could justify spending for myself, but these pyjamas and just about everything else on the website would make gorgeous gifts and I would be happy to spend that amount for something a little bit special and different.
But then Little Casa do offer free delivery if you spend £30, and that wouldn’t be hard for me to do as there are so many things I love in their store! They also have a ‘house warming’ offer on till the end of July (£10 off a £30 spend / £5 off a £15 spend)….so yes, I have convinced myself that we really do need to have a shopping spree with Little Casa!!
Overall – 9/10
My new favourite website for kids clothes! Everything on it is so much to my taste! I would be absolutely over the moon to receive these pjs as a gift for my little ones. They may not be on the cheap side but they are a quality product and make Happiness look like one very cool little dude!
We were provided with the clothes for the purpose of review – all opinions are the reviewers own.
