Yesterday we went to the preview of the Mothercare Spring/Summer 2016 collection. When we first went in we saw the gorgeous Peter Rabbit collection which is in conjunction with the 150th anniversary of Beatrix Potter. I have a little bit of a Peter Rabbit obsession and have all of the ornaments and even sourced some bedding for Oscar from France. I had been looking for a nursery range for ages for Archie and only found bits in the U.S and to ship them over here was a fortune. Seeing the new Mothercare collection made my day and I can’t wait for its release in March. There is everything from Peter rabbit clothing and accessories to beautiful cot bedding, furniture and gifts. The clothing range is for babies of newborn to 1 year and the collection is made up of soft grey and white unisex colours with traditional illustrations. The embroidery is gorgeous.
Around the room were different sets of nursery furniture to suit any nursery. From walnut to white the furniture is lovely and so well made. My favourite is the new Bloomsbury collection with smooth, stylish curves and I love the changing unit. Also the new moses baskets and stand caught my eye. They are beautiful with soft material weaved around the edges and with the new stands look amazing. I wish Archie could still fit in one as I would definitely get this one in the grey.
I was then shown the new XSS Pockit stroller and was absolutely blown away by it. It is a Guiness World record breaker as it is the most compact pushchair at only H34cm x W14cm x D32cm when folded. It is absolutely tiny and so light weight too. Wherever you go the XSS will fit everywhere. From an over head compartment on a plane to inside its very own carry bag, you can carry it anywhere. The carry bag matches the pattern of the pushchair and when the stroller is inside nobody would ever guess you are carrying around a pushchair. It is brilliant for travelling or even on the school run when you want a small pushchair that won’t take up the whole of your boot. It is packed with additional features including a sun canopy, adjustable handles and lockable front swivel wheels. It is suitable for babies of 6 months + and is an absolute bargain at only £129.99!
The Little Bird collection by Jools Oliver is as gorgeous as ever, with the bright colours and funky designs. The Little Bird brand is iconic and most parents will be able to spot a Little Birds outfit out in a crowd. The collection is bright, fun and with the bold graphics your children will love wearing these outfits. The whole collection is gorgeous and I can’t wait for it to hit the stores in the early part of next year!
The Baby K collection by Myleene Klass is exclusive to Mothercare and every season she designs the most beautiful children’s clothes and nursery collections. I love the baby collections with different slogans on, especially the grey and yellow ‘happy’ jumper.
The Mothercare clothing range caters for babies and children’s up to 8 years. They have launched three collections for the Spring/Summer collection; Hamptons, Eco and Rio. I love all of the vibrant colours and prints. The children’s trainers are really on trend too and they have also refreshed their character ranges with retro favourites like Tom and Jerry and Dennis the Menace. I have a long shopping list of clothing for the boys from everything I was shown. Role on Spring!
We had a great afternoon at the Mothercare Spring/Summer preview #SS16Mothercare and loved everything. We also got to make a great tote bag each which was a great idea and a really fun momento of the day.
