Broken Tricycle

It has only just arrived in the Bean and Me online store and it’s already flying of the shelves, I am of course talking about the brand new Broken Tricycle AW 2014 collection. If you love Australian design, are a big fan of soft organic fabrics and a sucker for stylish patterns and cool prints you are sure to adore Broken Tricycle:

Broken Tricycle Cat Sweater

Designed right here in Australia by Melbourne mama of two Patricia Broken Tricycle has quickly secured a spot amongst the hippest organic clothing labels. The latest collection feels like a fresh breeze, the colours are vibrant and eye catching and the prints are quirky and fun. Sizes start at a tiny 0-3 months up to 3 year old, if you have a cheeky little tot that fits the bill be quick and secure your sizes before they sell out.

Broken Tricycle Penguin SweaterMy personal favourite piece is the Banjo Play Pant ($35), these fruity sherbet coloured pants are a perfect way to brighten up a dreary autumn day. The same pinky shade can be found in the gorgeous Cat Sweater ($40) so together these two pieces make a cute, cosy and very comfy outfit for active baby girls. If you have a little boy you can sport the sweater look too, get your groove on with this cool Penguin Sweater.

Broken Tricycle Banjo TrackieBecause Broken Tricycle clothing is made of organic cotton it is an ideal choice for children who suffer from eczema, allergies and sensitive skin. Of course it is a great choice for any child, after all no one like breathing in nasty chemicals or getting red and itchy skin that stops you from having fun playing or sleeping soundly. To help you pick the correct size for your child the wonderful Rochelle at Bean and Me has put together a handy Broken Tricycle size chart, easy as pie.

Regular Hip little one readers will know that our household has been battling eczema and other skin conditions, our youngest child in particular is always scratching which is heartbreaking to see. Over time we have worked out a few of the triggers, some of them we can avoid but others you simply can’t. Like many other parents we have learnt the hard way that harsh skincare products are disastrous for baby’s skin so we only welcome natural products in our home.

Australian company Brauer Naturals has heard the call from worried parents and developed a range of natural baby skincare products that is eczema friendly and gentle on sensitive skin. Created with natural ingredient like paw paw, chamomile and honey these products will leave your baby feeling soft and smelling delicious, without the worry of nasty chemicals and artificial fragrances.

The Brauer Naturals Baby range consists of 6 great products that cover your little ones from top to bottom and from morning to night. For in the bathroom there are Baby Bath + Body Wash, Baby Shampoo and Baby Sleepytime Bath, Baby Nappy Balm and Baby Soft Skin Lotion are must-haves for on the changetable and last but not least there is the Baby Massage Oil for those special one-on-one moments.

As a mum of two little girls and a boy I am very aware of the difference between washing long hair or short hair, a head full of tangled hair can really ruin a fun bath or shower run. The Baby Shampoo leaves my girls’ hair easy to manage afterwards so we can enjoy the happy faces a little longer. And between you and me, I always take just a bit too much of the Baby Soft Skin Lotion so I can use the ‘excess’ myself after moisturising the kids.

For some extra smiles and giggles each Brauer Naturals Baby product comes with a free bath duck, there is a whole duck family to collect. Now the great thing about Brauer Naturals Baby is that, on top of a happy baby and happy mum, it leaves your wallet healthy too as the products have a very gentle $11.49 price tag.
