me&i is a Swedish clothing company that caters for men, women and children. Their clothing is cute, bright and functional. We were asked to try out some clothing with the 2 younger children.
We made our choices (very difficult I must say, the clothes are gorgeous!) and awaited our package which came in a bag emblazoned with the me&i logo scattered amongst little hedgehogs.
Inside the package the two tops we chose were wrapped in individual bags again with the logo across the front.
So the tops we chose were:
For him: Landscape T-Shirt £20 (currently £16 in the sale) in size 122/128
For her: Dino Tunic £21 (currently £17 in the sale) in size 110/116
One of the main things I love about this clothing range is that the t-shirts/trousers/hoodies are modeled on both boys and girls, there is only a ‘kids’ headed section, it is not split by gender. My daughter is one of those kids who just cannot for the life of her stay clean, so I’m more inclined to buy darker colours usually more associated with boys (grrrr).
The Landscape T-shirt is covered in brightly coloured cars/trees/clouds etc and is made from 95% cotton, 5% elastane which gives it a stretchy feel, perfect for kids on the move.
The Dino Tunic comes in a bright cerise colour with a lovely green dinosaur on the front in Terry material, 80% organic cotton, 20% polyester. The Terry material I think would make it a fantastic choice for popping on at the beach too.
As you can see below we took the new clothing for their first outing on a bike ride, they kept the kids cool and comfortable whilst they were enjoying the fun.
The sizing is done in cm rather than age although a rough age guide is given so it’s probably best if you want to be doubly sure to measure their height. I feel the sizes were just right for my children.
A bit more about me&i
me&i was founded in 2004 by Susan Engvall and Helene Nyrell from the kitchen table in their homes in Barsebäck, Southern Sweden. Today the company’s turnover is nearly £20 million and the clothes are available for fashion conscious customers in five countries. Over 850 sales representatives are working to bring the brand and the clothes to you in your home.
Also a big stand-out statement for me is “It goes without saying that using child labour for me&i production is strictly forbidden.” knowing you’re getting good quality products made without putting children at risk is obviously a huge plus – an absolute must in my opinion.
Other items we like the look of
In short we loved them! The only problem we had was chosing what to have to start with! They have worn and washed well, always a good sign! The kids were comfy in them and really enjoyed putting them through their paces.
*we were gifted the items for the purpose of this review however all opinions remain honest and my own*
