Where do you shop for toddler clothes?

[deleted account] ( 28 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?

Babies R Us & Toys R Us have great clearance racks and the clothes hold up well, usually. I also buy a lot of my kids' clothes at Kohls and JcPenney. Everytime I go to Target, I keep an eye on the clearance racks and have had some good luck with great sales. However, once your tot moves up to regular kid sizing, Target is more expensive than Kohls and JcPenney. I really dislik Wal-Mart but have been able to find some decent summer play clothes for my kids there at a good price.

I have 2 different types of clothes for my 20month old daughter. One set of nice clothes for when I want her to dress up a bit and I get them from Pumpkin Patch and I get her cheaper clothes from the cheaper stores like Target, Big W, K-Mart and I buy these throughout the season when I find something that is cute. The pumpkin patch clothes I buy at the begining of the season, they arn't cheap so I get a few Items that I can mix and match to extend the number of variations of the outfits. Pumpkin Patch is Australian so I don't know if you can order it online and have it shipped to you, but I know that Baby Gap has some really cute stuff and Baby Fox also has beautiful fun outfits. The Idea of getting some nice not so cheap clothes is that sometimes you go places where your child needs to wear nice clothing and I find the cheaper clothes lack that something speacial even though they can be really nice it can come down to something as simple as the quality of the fabric or the detailing on the buttons that makes all the difference.

WALMART! At walmart they have grananimals. It's a brand which is so cute and fashionable! It's also really inexpensive, the clothes are mix and match and are all $3-5 Per shirt, jeans, skirts, tanks, leggings, and everything! I think it's awesome. You also could try once apon a child if it doesn't bother you that they are gently used clothes, but there they can get pretty unreasonable sometimes. But best bet is the grananimals at walmart!

I have two boys and I am using most of the clothes from the first son for the second. I love Walmart for their clothes just for the reason you said. They are cheap. If they get stained or ruined you wont get upset. Yes her height and weight have slowed down but she still will only wear them for 3- 6 months before moving on to the next size. I can buy a shirt or pants for $3.50 per item and have a nice wardrobe for my kids and not worry about boys being boys.

For play clothes, I usually go to Wal-Mart, Target, and Carters. By the end of the season they are usually faded or too small. For nicer things, I like Gymboree and Gap.

I usually look for sales and go when the deals are good. I shop at Kohls, Childrens Place is great, Jcpenny, Old Navy, Burliington Coat factory they sell more then coats LOL they have all the good brands at a good price. Good Luck hope this helps

I LOVE consignment stores. You can get all of ..the name brands what last and are wicked cheap. I am not sure where you live....but I know in Southeastern CT where I am, there are a few stores I love to go to. Baby Go Round(Groton) is good....Kids and Kribs (Montville) is also good. Also, try Marshall and TJ Maxx...if you look you can find good brands there too. I am picky about Walmart brands, only because they don't last. I have 2 boys, 4 and 2, so I need clothes that last....I have had the best of luck with the consignment stores...I can get a pair of Gap jeans for my 2 year old for $2!!! Where else can you get that!!?? Good luck!!

I have a 4 1/2 yr old boy and I like Carters or Kohl's. Carters can either email or mail you coupons so when you hit the clearance items, there are great deals.



Kohls has great quality. I like their long sleeve, soft t shirts as they wash well and are long-lasting. I also like clothes from Carters or Kohl's for my 2 1/2 yr old girl. I shop at Target for some things on clearance but overall my faves are Carters, Kohl's and Sears has great bargains. Their Toughskins brand is great.

Children's Place online but only when they are having a blow out clearance and then do an online search for a coupon for 30% more off of the already discounted rates. I just bought 5 pairs of shorts, 6 t-shirts, 2 bathing suits and a pair of sneakers (1 size up for next summer) for under $40. The quality of their products can't be beat.

Honestly I buy almost everything on gymbofriends.com

I very rarely buy brand new clothes other than Jeans, shoes and some shirts but ONLY if they are on sale. I get jeans at TCP becaue I can get 2 for $22. Their shirts are usually 2 for $12 or something like that too.

Buying on gymbofriends, I can actually afford to dress my kids in Gymboree and Gap and they last longer than Walmart or Target clothes do plus you can resell them and get close to what you paid for them.

Well im in Canada and I dont know if there are any Bonnie Togs there but that's were i shop my son just turned 4 and he is big for his age he is 3'6 and 48lbs so I have troubles finding clothes for him. At Bonnie Togs everything is is 2 for $10 or 2 for $15 or jeans are 2 for $25 at the end of season u can get things really cheap. I got his next year summer wardrobe for $2.97 each piece so for under $100 he is ready for next summer> I am definetly on a budget being a single mom so I love this place and they have so many deals and great clothes that wear well and last a long time. They also have stamped tags in there shirts (my son makes me cut out tags) so this is great for me and him

Carter's and you can buy way in advance, hit the clearance sales and sign up for email coupons. If you keep your receipt and leave tags on until you use the clothes you can take back any clothes that were not used for up to 3 years (in Michigan), check with your local store.

When we go to a bigger city (we live a small town), I LOVE "Once Upon a Child"... because you can get high quality brands for Target/Walmart Prices. I also love the fact that they put all the same sizes/colors together. It makes shopping for my kids pretty easy. They also usually only take clothes that are in good shape... however, I am pretty picky about what clothes I will buy... but I still have good luck there. I have an almost 4 year old girl, a 2 1/2 year old boy and an almost 5 month old girl. I think I would like to shop at garage sales, but it is just too difficult & time consuming... so, Once Upon a Child is the next best thing. I also go to second-hand stores when I visit my mom... she can easily watch the kiddos. We also have a kids only second hand store in town... I spent about $20 this summer, and I got about 20 items... they had 75% off everything in the store during Crazy Days this summer. It was wonderful. I love second-hand clothing for the kids. I like Kohls for their shoes selection and prices... I like to buy new, high quality shoes for the kids. Hope this helps.

Kohls! Apply for credit and you'll get up to %30 discounts about once a month! I always shop clearance and sale racks, which seem to be very abundant there! Also, second hand shops are wonderful, but often I've found the prices are about the same as the sales at Walmart and Kohls. Oh yea, and Kohls has the easiest return policy I have ever dealt with!

Have you look online at online auctions you can pick up very cheap clothes you have to be careful as photos can be deceiving.
