Where do you shop for toddle clothing?

[deleted account] ( 15 moms have responded )

My daughter's growth and weight gain are finally steadying so I need to get her some clothes that will last a while. What stores or brands do you prefer or try to avoid for quality reasons? (price is still very much an issue) I always check resale shops first then Target. But I'm not liking Target's selection right now. Wal mart is super cheap but you usually get what you pay for. I haven't shopped wal mart for clothes since her infancy. Would you recommend it for toddlers? I'm loving the Children's Place. Even with sales and clearance, their stuff is kinda pricey. Do you find it worth it? Where do you get your toddler's quality clothing at a reasonable price?

Old Navy and Gap are the best for Pj's. Actually Costco has good Kirkland brand ones too. My son is skinny and so many things don't fit him in the waist and if they do then he usually has high waters. I watch Gymboree and Jack & Janie for sales and they have HUGE sales...things that normally would be $40 is down to $5, and I just buy for the next season. Some stuff I buy at Target, never Walmart, their clothes are so scratchy. I go to resale shops to, great jeans, snow pants, boots and winter coats I find there.

I love the clothes at Walmart, Target, and KMart. They all have their on line of clothing for kids like Walmarts Granimals and they are perfect! Her clothes from Walmart actually do last me until she grows out of them, but maybe that just b/c she grows so fast LOL. I love the fact that I can mix and match all her clothes!

Gymboree is my favorite store for my daughter. Catch stuff on sale and use coupons and you can get some good deals. I also like Old Navy .

I find that you can often find AWESOME sale items at Gap.. their clothes are a much higher quality than anything else I've found... I find that its worth the money to get the quality in the clothes

i found that the best bang for my buck has come from pants that have adjustable waist band inserts. find them at the Childrens Place or the "Joe" clothes from the Superstore. the childrens place can run a bit on the pricey side, but if ur getting alot of wear out of the clothes its worth it because they are def good quality. -im in Canada, i assume ur in the states if ur shopping at target, but maybe u have a place that sells the same type of pant. good luck!

Carter's is another good place, especially of you have Outlets near you. You can also sign up online and get coupons from Carter's.

My favorite stores ever for my little girl's clothes are the resale stores! It takes some digging but the price is always right!! It is difficult to buy for the season so I usually buy whatever I like and arrange the closet so I find it when the season for it arises. THe best ones are the all children's thrift stores like "Children's Orchard" There's no way I could afford to by retail especially with how much she likes to play in the dirt!!!! Also we have lots of outlet stores in my city so I find some of her nicer clothes there.

i have found some really cute stuff at the thrift store by my house. i usually just buy stuff from there for play clothes. i really think that i buy everything else from target. i love the circo and genuine kids brands, they stand up to a rough 2 year old and lots of washes. i NEVER find anything but pj's at walmart or k-mart.old navy is great too, and reasonably priced.

Old Navy, Walmart, Target....anywhere I see cute clothes. I don't really like places like Carters, Osh Kosh, Children's Place, etc. I can usually hit the jackpot at places like Ross or Marshalls. I like finding clothes that not every other child you see is wearing.

I love Old Navy and Target. I agree with you that Target doesn't have a very good selection right now, but sometimes they do have some cute stuff. I like variety and Wal-mart's stuff is about the same everytime I go in there. I can uually find a pair of shorts or pants there, but that is it really. Old Navy is always coming out with the latest fashions for toddlers.

I like children's place. When they have sales they are a very good deal (I have gotten sleepers there for 1.99). They are also good quality clothes. Old Navy can be okay too.

I hit Marshall's or TJ Maxx first, actually. I just picked up a snowsuit for my 4 year old for $25.

Old Navy can have some decent sales on the basics. Same for Sears. And I would normally never shop Macy's for kids' clothes but I've been having just stellar luck with specific things I was looking for.

the children's place clothing is quality. it lasts for a long time and through many cousins! but, it is too much for me. i only shop there occasionally. i like old navy and baby gap too...again, sometimes a bit too pricey. so, my way around that is to shop the sale page online and purchase clothes that are for older kids. i found a nice dress at old navy for $4.99 that was originally $14.99. it fits a size 3T. i save things like that for when she gets older. the other place that is great is ross. i didn't think so when a friend of mine suggested it but i found an outfit there that jcpenny's was selling for twice the price. now i shop there all the time
