Mini Sibling

Mini-Sibling
There’s a new kid on the block. Introducing Mini Sibling, a new little sister brand to one of our favourite ever kids wear brands, Beau Loves which has just landed at Hip Little People.

Created by designer Faye White for her youngest son Knox, Mini Sibling is a contemporary baby and toddler collection with a unisex and ultra modern palette of backs, greys and nudes.

It’s so positive to see Mini Sibling as a new emerging brand that is completely gender neutral and full of quality, timeless pieces which are easily mixed and matched to create a little capsule wardrobe.

I really love how contemporary the range is, incorporating all the current trends in baby fashion such as knit, texture, grey and ribbed tights- all my favourite aspects and what I look for when sourcing stylish bay clothes for Willa.

Mini-siblingThe new Mini Sibling collection is the easiest to coordinate, and is all made from softest cotton knit, cotton jersey and fleece. These grey knit bloomers are a staple piece which will go with just about anything for small people of both genders. They have lots of tiny detail such as an embroidered logo and a knitted tie detail, and will wash and wear beautifully. I’ve teamed our pair up with the nude ribbed tights which are the most perfect colour, all available online at Hip Little People.

Mini Sibling



There is lots of moveabililty in the Mini Sibling collection which makes it perfect for little ones, Willa is now two weeks away from her first Birthday and is incredibly wriggly, crawling and pulling herself up, and all the pieces allow her to move freely and in comfort. Life is a big adventure!

They have also survived the wash and wear test too- each piece has washed beautifully and dried on an airer fairly quickly- I’ve got a few premium knit wear pieces in Willa’s wardrobe that seem to take forever to dry which can be a nightmare! Luckily they all pass my functionality test with flying colours.

This time a year ago I was in full nesting mode, and collecting up a very marvellous baby stash ready for our impending arrival, and the Mini Sibling range would have been on my purchase list- bonus that if you are unsure of the gender of baby, all the pieces are completely perfect for either.

Willa wears the Mini Sibling reversible sweater/cardigan in black and grey stripes. I love the versatility of this piece, and it’s super soft and is true to size- Willa wears 12-18 months which has room for her to grow, but the sleeves are nicely designed so they fit well and can be rolled back.

Hip Little People has a great offering for Mini Sibling and it’s big brother brand Beau Loves, perfect for coordinating siblings without being too match yet-matchy. There’s a few other styles that I’m coveting too; the cutest little black pixie hat and knitted grey overalls with eye embroidery.

Velveteen Babies X Scamp and Dude. A Superhero has our backs.

Velveteen Babies blog Scamp and Dude
We’ve all been hanging out in Scamp and Dude this week. It was a hit with my two boys, Felix (6) and Barnaby (3) who are the best critics of any brand- and it got a massive thumbs up!

Conceived in 2016 by Jo Tuchener-Sharp, the brand has an inspiring story and concept. In October 2015, Jo suffered a brain haemorrhage which meant that she had to spend lengthy time in hospital away from her children. It was down to this that inspired Jo to create a brand that would make children feel secure when apart from their loved ones, and scamp and Dude was born.

A Superhero has my back

There’s a real emphasis on quality, and fun which appeals so much to my kids, and they immediately pounced on the Superhero Sleep Buddies which now go to bed with them every night. They have a little pocket in them so that your child can pop in a photo of their family or carers, so they feel safe and loved.  The most lovely thing about these is that Scamp and Dude donate one to a child in need with the purchase of one. Scamp and Dude works with charities Grief Encounter, Don’t forget the Kids and the leading London children’s hospital.

Scamp and Dude are taking Mama accessories to the next level too- the swag bags are the perfect sizes for make-up and cosmetics, and the larger size is ideal for skincare and holiday essentials (can also double up as a clutch) or fill with toys for when you’re out and about.
The sweatshirts are super soft and true to size- I haven’t taken my leopard one off and it’s one of those easy styles that’s perfect for the school or nursery run.

Batty Leggings


Barney is wearing the new Batty leggings in a size 2-3 which are a great fit, and the monochrome style fits so well with this tee from Nor-folk. Tobias and the bear are also releasing a black batty tee which we’ll have to get our hands on!

The range complements our superhero garland so well that we just had to create a room set to take some pictures. The unisex contemporary styling of the range is sure to be a hit with design loving parents, and the cheeky bat design a must have for small people, a win-win situation.
