Every season it’s a virtual case of pushing and shoving at the doors when it comes to the release of the much anticipated Oishi-m collection. People are staying up all night to be the first to grab the hottest designs and many styles sell out in a matter of days, leaving mums across the country empty handed. The latest range has just arrived at Where Did You Get That? so get your running shoes and scoop up your favourites while you can:
Once you’ve picked out your child’s new Winter wardrobe simply use the code ‘WINNER’ to receive FREE shipping Australia wide. Offer ends April 22, 2014.
Australian label Oishi-m has gathered quite the following over the past few years, a few weeks ago I discovered there is even an exclusive market for older, second-hand Oishi-m styles that’s how sought after this label is! All styles are limited edition so they can not be ordered in again, you can consider yourself lucky if you own a few of these stylish pieces.
This Winter your little minifashionistas can wear a different Oishi-m outfit every day of the week. Jeans and trackies, skirts and t-shirts, jumpers and jackets, there are lots of different styles to choose from and thanks to the colourful prints and prints it is super easy to match them up. Oishi-m is definitely not boring, bland or plain, it is funky, unique, versatile and shows personality and character.
One of my personal favourites this season is the Oish-m Now Jacket ($89.95, size 3-6). It features the signature asymmetrical crossover closure Oishi-m is famous for, a cute floral trim and the hood is lined with beautiful paisley print fabric, very eye catching. Combining red, pink, blue, orange, grey and purple this is without a doubt a massive must-have for your girls winter wardrobe.
Now before you dash off to buy this utterly divine Sing Wonderful Crew Jumper ($59.95, size 3-6) please note that I have first dibs on the size 4-5 (just kidding, if you beat me to it I will forgive you). I am madly in love with this sweet little number in pretty soft, pastel coloured tones, how gorgeous is the floral detail at the hem? This girls jumper is like a breath of fresh air on a dark Autumn day.

If I had to describe fabulous UK label Tootsa MacGinty in a few words it would be classic, cool, country and comfort. Their stylish children’s clothing makes me think of Autumn, walks in the forest, climbing trees and building forts, gumboots and farm adventures. Last year’s collection was a huge hit and luckily enough Baby Donkie has managed to also secure the latest range for Aussie kids to enjoy:
Featuring soft, high quality and durable materials, comfortable cuts and vibrant colours and prints Tootsa MacGinty gets the tick of approval from both children and parents. Little fashionistas will love the style, curious adventurers enjoy the comfortable fit and mum appreciates the durability and easy wash and wear. Many of the styles are unisex yet absolutely not boring or plain, great for siblings to pass on once outgrown.
I originally picked the Tootsa MacGinty Periwinkle Fox Knit ($55, size 18 months – 5 years) for our 3.5 year old daughter, she usually wears a size 4 so I thought size 4-5 would be a safe choice. Upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised at the sizing as it was so generous the jumper was actually much more suited to miss 5, it worked out well as the colour looks just stunning on her and she loves the comfortable, soft (non-itchy) feel. She will get plenty of wear out of it and then it can be passed on to miss 3, you’ve got to love having a big family!
As always the Tootsa MacGinty A/W 2014 collection is easy to mix and match, with other garments in the range but also with pieces from your existing wardrobe. Go for a bold look with all over print or keep it simple with a neutral top and printed pants or team up a nice pair of denims with a printed top, it is up to you. One thing you can be sure of, your child will be the coolest kid on the block as Tootsa MacGinty is rather exclusive here in OZ!
For a limited time only Baby Donkie offers FREE shipping Australia wide on all orders. Simply enter the code ‘BREAK’ at checkout, offer ends April 27, 2014. (Due to a short holiday orders will be sent early May)

Wherever you look new season’s fashion is hitting the stores, babies, kids and adults are spoilt for choice when it comes to their Winter wardrobe. But of course a hip new outfit is nothing without a stylish pair of shoes to finish the look, Cheeky Little Soles has got little minifashionistas ones covered with a brand new collection of soft soled baby shoes:
Let’s start with the girls, how sweet is the new Beautiful Blooms ($39.95, size Small-Large) design? Featuring a classic white base and eye catching pink and red patent leather bloom detail these gorgeous shoes are sure to be a hot favourite. With such popular girl colours they are a breeze to mix and match and go with any outfit. Don’t worry about the white leather getting dirty, these little shoes can be hand washed for easy cleaning.
My favourite style for the little ladies is All About Eve ($39.95, size Small-Large). This design really is pretty as a picture with a soft pink coloured base and beautiful multi coloured leaf detail across the top. The elasticised back makes them easy to slip on and it helps the shoes stay on too. Thanks to the soft leather and absence of open seams there will be no irritation or painful marks on your baby’s precious tiny feet.
Of course we can’t forget about the boys, these colourful Geometric Fusion ($39.95, size Small-Large) shoes are little works of modern art with their hexagon shaped detail. If you are looking for a pair of bright and cheerful shoes for your little man and want to step away from the traditional blue and brown tones this is the perfect design for you. The skid resistant non-slip soles will help your young adventurer stay upright when he does his first wobbly steps.
Last but not least there are these funky little Sound Off ($39.95, size Small-Large) kickers, a must-have for cool little dudes. The awesome blue and orange colour combination is very hip and a touch retro too, plus the dark colour will hide any scuff marks your curious crawler may make on them. If you need some help selecting the right shoe size for your baby simply check the Cheeky Little Soles size chart, easy as pie.
Over the past few weeks I have given you quite few non-edible Easter gift suggestions, making sure your little people are left with more than empty wrappers after Easter. In our family we are generally very healthy eaters so chocolate is a (much loved) occasional treat, I know it is hard to believe but I am yet to eat an Easter egg this year!
In saying that it is pretty hard to do your grocery shopping and avoid the delicious indulgence that is Cadbury, it is everywhere and it is all so yummy! Chocolate bunnies big and small, Easter eggs in a array of scrumptious flavours and fillings, there is so much Cadbury goodness to choose from this time of year. Caramello, Turkish Delight, Crunchie, Strawberry, Top Deck, Old Gold, how do you like your eggs?
After the huge success of the Cadbury Marvellous Creations range it is no surprise that the special Cadbury Marvellous Creations Easter products are flying off the shelves. Also available are Cadbury Mini Eggs, an old favourite for many and great to share with friends and family. Pleasantly priced at just $1.60 for a 45g on-the-go box and $4.50 for a 125g family share bag Mini Eggs are a must-have for the upcoming Easter weekend.
I bet my skinny jeans are very grateful that I am unable to win my own giveaways, instead we will make one lucky Hip little one reader happy with a huge Cadbury Easter hamper valued at $100. Please note, products may vary due to availability.
Cadbury Marvellous Creations and Cadbury Mini Eggs products are available at leading supermarkets, discount department stores, independent grocery stores and petrol and convenience stores all across Australia.

One of the things I love most about Summer is that my washing pile is a lot smaller in the warmer months than in the chilly Autumn/Winter season. In Summer the kids put on just a simple top and shorts or dress and they often eat their dinner wearing nothing but their undies so there are no dirty clothes to wash. In Winter they wear a few layers of clothes and somehow they all (but especially the baby!) manage to get food on everything. With four kids that equals a lot of laundry!
The brand new Pop-In Coverall Bib by Close is designed to help reduce mess, prevent your child’s clothing getting ruined by nasty food stains, dirty paint messes or sticky craft glue and (very important) make mum’s life easier with less cleaning up and less washing. Created by the makers of the Close Pop-In nappy and brought to you by the wonderful team at OZ Baby Trends you can trust you are buying a quality item that is durable, practical and works a treat.
The generous long sleeve design provides excellent coverage for little mess makers, covering their complete chest, lap, shoulders, sleeves and even part of their back. Clothes stay clean and dry thanks to the waterproof fabric, simply wipe clean afterwards and your bib is good as new. It will be one very clever cookie who is able to get any mess past this awesome bib! Handy tip: Keep a Pop-In Coverall in your nappy bag for those unplanned snacks or meals when out and about, that way your baby’s good ‘going out’ clothes are well protected.
The Pop-In Coverall Bib (RRP $24.95) is available in four stylish prints and two sizes: ‘Stage 3′ to fit children aged 6-18 months and ‘Stage 4′ to fit children aged 18-36 months.
With our Europe holiday slowly coming closer the kids are becoming more and more interested in planes. This will be the first time the older three really understand the concept of flying and they can’t get enough of hearing all about it. I’m very glad they are too small to read the newspapers and worry about missing planes, instead we are keeping things upbeat with the latest Disney DVD release Planes:
Let the makers of the roaring Disney hits Cars and Cars 2 take you on a sky high adventure with Planes. He may be built for farm work but Dusty the Crop Duster is dreaming of racing up high with the ‘real’ planes and taking part in the ‘Wings around the Globe’ competition. Unfortunately not everyone believes he is up to the task, add to that the small issue of his fear of heights and you can see why it won’t be easy to make his dream come true.
It takes a lot of practice, the support of his loyal farm friends and the expert advise of former war plane Skipper but to everyone’s surprise Dusty the Crop Hopper qualifies for the race. Now it is up to him to prove himself over the course of the race while flying from country to country. What a great way to learn about some of the world’s most famous monuments!
Along the way Dusty meets friendly competitors, jealous co-flyers and even some very attractive aircraft and as the race continues he slowly overcomes his fear of heights. He quickly wins the hearts of all participants thanks to his kind and helpful nature, it looks like he really is in with a chance to win this thing. Will Dusty’s big dream come to an end when he crashes and seems beyond repair?
Planes is available on DVD ($29.95) and Blu-ray ($39.95) at major retailers across Australia.
To celebrate the April 9th Blu-ray and DVD release of Planes we are giving away 3 copies of Planes on Blu-ray. What are you waiting for? Put on your seat belt and get ready for take off by entering our giveaway below:
