Much time and love has gone into creating BabyDonkie, and researching and sourcing the products to making your shopping experience both easy and enjoyable. Like many store owners, Dong-Maria of BabyDonkie loves shopping. What separates her from others is her experience, she not only shops for her 2 boys, she also has 19 nieces and nephews! With a family this big, hand me downs are well loved, meaning if it appears at BabyDonkie, you know that it has passed Dong-Maria’s test for quality and longevity!
BabyDonkie loves supporting small and independent designers and businesses both locally and overseas, so you will find a collection of brands that are not readily available across many stores. Of course you will find a few icons like Alimrose Designs which are a long loved favourite. The pieces at BabyDonkie are fun, colourful, quirky, cute, affordable, and in the case of the baby products, quite practical (eg. aden + anais muslin warps, sleepy wings).
This year will see more focus on boys wear such as Mini Shatsu and unisex clothing. BabyDonkie will be bringing a few fresh labels to Australia over the coming months. These include Indikidual and DandelionKids (from March) and later in the year Tootsa MacGinty, Corby Tindersticks and Marmalade & Mash, all from the UK, meaning BabyDonkie will be your one stop shop for that individual item to make your little person stand out from the crowd!

It took Kate Brog two years of love and devotion move get Shop for Tots from a dream to it’s launch in April of 2011. ‘BK (before kids), I worked in my family business which was the leading provider of kids educational materials in Australia’ said Kate. ‘I worked there for 15 years and learn’t so much from working on the shop floor, in the phone room, in accounts and other areas of the business.’ The business was sold after Kate’s little twins were born, as she wanted to work from home. With young twins, Kate found that she bought everything online, finding it much easier than a trip to the shops! Knowing that there would be many other mothers who would love shopping at a quality children’s store in their pyjamas, just like her, the seed was planted and the idea grew.
Three years on and Kate loves what she does! Even though Shop For Tots are only 12 months old, they have a loyal group of customers who enjoy the large range of quality clothing, toys and decor.
In 2011 Kate was tackling all tasks solo, but now Shop for Tots is lucky enough to have a wonderful team of 5 people who keep the store moving in the right direction. Tracy is the Shop for Tots Busy Bee, she runs the warehouse and keeps in touch with their customers. Jo (Kate’s gorgeous sister in law) is their Social Butterfly, managing their Facebook Page and writing their product descriptions. Donna is the PR and Media contact and their in house Oobi expert. Steve (Kate’s hubby) handles the accounts and makes an amazing Tarte Tatin. Whilst Kate contributes Caffe Latte’s to keep the team going and still has her hand in most things.
Kate’s plan for the future is to increase their range of top quality children’s clothing brands, including a few from overseas. Shop for Tots wants to convey a fashion focus through their website, with some amazing new features and design improvements being developed, they are due to be implemented over the next few months. ‘We are so excited about our year ahead and what the future holds for Shop for Tots!’ said Kate.

Naomi and Charlie Seabrooke moved to
Queenstown from Australia in 2009 and soon after got married here. It
had been for many years their annual holiday destination but with
Naomi's impending long service leave from her 13 year retail banking
career they could hear the call of the remarkable mountains.
Whilst the old world of retail banking was a distant memory, Naomi did miss the challenge of sinking her teeth into a good strategy and seeing it come to life...then one day she stumbled across an ad for an online business.
On 27 November 2011, Naomi officially took the reigns of Kiddy Couture. Naomi had a then 4 month old son Angus and husband, Charlie, who works overseas every other month. It was an exciting opportunity that Naomi couldn't say no to, despite the obvious challenges.
Kiddy Couture was established in 2009 as a 100% dedicated online store sourcing funky brands and cool fashion that can be challenging to find in New Zealand. This coupled with high dedication to delivering a quality customer experience, Kiddy Couture has earned a strong following in both NZ and Australia. Today the strategy remains much the same, with growth as a key focus.
Kiddy Couture recently had a makeover. Naomi felt that whilst the original website had a definite element of 'coolness' and difference from so many other online stores (something that attracted Naomi to purchasing KC in the first place), but its own brand was a little lost. The new fresh look launched at the end of April has strengthened KC brand with greater presence and identity) and the product on offer remains hero. The new look has an element of sophistication with kid like fun. It is a contradiction that works so well.
Naomi as a new and first time Mum admits that the world of kids fashion was all rather new for a little while. This led to the creation of their recently launched 'tried and tested' campaign. Naomi knew how valuable the opinion of other Mum's is. On the website and facebook page you will see the tried and tested stamp, this is your cue to check out their blog, What is Goin' On, to read a review from another KC mum. This in itself is a good indicator of the type of experience you can expect from Team KC, Mum's are always giving feedback and sending in snaps of their kids in their KC goodies.
KC stocks predominately clothing including favourite labels such as Minti, SOOKIbaby, SOSOOKI, Munster, Missie Musnter, Oobi Baby & Kids, Three Little Trees, Havoc Denim, Walnut Melbourne, Beatrix NY and more. Come summer they are taking the range from baby to size 10 (currently up to size 7) and will see Milky added and Little Horn return...plus a few others are in the pipeline. One thing is for sure, if it is not funky or not cool, you won't find it at Kiddy Couture. They are not about stocking 'everything', just the goodies you just have to have....now!
When Stylish Kiddish was born on the 3rd of November 2011 it was a dream come true for owner and founder Sonia Vettoor. It was after having child number 3 Sonia quickly found that just getting out the door each morning was a monumental task. This is when she discovered the undeniable convenience of online shopping.
Then at 30 and with 4 gorgeous children, Sonia was ready for a change of path. Stylish Kiddish was something for herself, something that she was oh-so-passionate and very slightly obsessive about. Whilst the journey to her dream was not easy, blessed with amazing support from her beautiful family, it was made a reality.
Operating for just 5 months, Stylish Kiddish stocks over 50 gorgeous Australian children’s labels including clothing, footwear, accessories, toys, partyware, bedding, furniture…and so much more!. Each Stylish Kiddish department is full of beautiful finds, all Australian and all in the one convenient place. “I have grown to love Australian labels more and more over the years and I have a simple rule that I follow – I will only stock products that I LOVE!” said Sonia
The stunning Stylish Kiddish range is constantly expanding with Sonia’s keen eye always on the lookout for the next special find.With her passion and dedication Sonia has, in a short time, made Stylish Kiddish a one-stop online boutique for the discerning parent wanting that something special for their special little someone. If she has done this much in such a small amount of time, imagine where they will be in another 5 months!

On the 20th of September 2011 Michelle Kent’s 3rd baby was born. Unlike her first 2 (a gorgeous son and daughter), her 3rd baby was a website affectionately named Tiny Wardrobe.
“I have always loved baby and children’s clothing, even before I had kids of my own” said Michelle. “Once they came along, my passion just became even stronger, as I now had the best reason for buying beautiful kids clothes. I love beautiful, edgy and different type of clothing, and I found it hard to find a great mix of brands all in one spot. I am always online trying to find new cool brands, from all over the world.”
With 5 years of shopping for her own children, Michelle had developed firsthand brand experience giving her a good idea of quality and uniqueness amongst different brands, and so she decided to turn her passion into her every day work.
Michelle aims to source and stock a great mix of brands all in the one place. Every item of clothing is carefully selected in search of that something a little bit different.
Tiny Wardrobe’s current brands include Australian labels such as Munster, Paper Wings, Kinki and Bobbi Sunshine and carefully selected international brands such as Mini Rodini, Nellystella, New Generals, ESP No1 and Bobo Chooses
Currently catering for sizes 000 through to 6 years, Michelle aims to expand to size 8 in the future.
“Tinywardrobe is only new, and I can’t wait to see it grow, every season, bigger and better, and to be able to provide mum’s everywhere with the best selection in fashion for their kids.” said Michelle

55 Degrees North is a boutique online children’s store specialising in clothing and footwear hand picked from the quality choices Danish fashion has to offer.
After living in Denmark for 2 years, returning to Australia and the birth of her daughter, Owner Vanessa Simonsen was surprised to find that she was not able to purchase the high quality, simplistic, trendy and beautiful clothing that was available in Denmark, especially those pieces and brands that the young Prince and Princess of Denmark were wearing.
55 Degrees North was established and launched in June 2010. After researching brands and pieces, a select few were chosen “I believe that when our customers purchase from us and see the actual quality of clothing they will definitely come back and visit” said Vanessa.
As 55 Degrees North grows they are heading away from their original choices of high street brands and instead want to give their customers something different, a feeling of shopping at a Children's Clothing Boutique similar to those that can be found in Copenhagen. This means that the range will be even more select and you will see the best Danish has to offer from Retro to Royal.

Emerald was established in early 2008 by Janice Schmitzer, a
grandmother of 3, after recognising a gap in the market for heirloom
quality Christening gowns and rompers for baby girls and boys.
‘I realised there was a gap in the market on the birth of my grandson when my daughter had great difficulty in sourcing a special boy’s gown for his Baptism. My 4 daughters and 2 granddaughters had all worn the same gown but we wanted something special for a little boy.’
Ivy Emerald’s divine, hand made designer gowns are handcrafted in Australia. Gowns are made from intricate hand beaded laces and silks and can be passed on to brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, granddaughters and grandsons.
An heirloom gown is really something to be treasured. Heirlooms link generations in a deep and personal way. A grandmother’s christening gown passed down through the generations can provide insight into and a richer understanding of a family’s history.
A Christening is a special celebration to which family and close friends attend when a baby is taken for their baptismal and christened with their name. It is an important occasion – putting Christenings alongside Weddings as a lovely gathering for families. Following the ceremony can be a celebration ranging from a small gathering with cake and coffee, to a huge party with much food and entertainment.
Ivy Emerald recognises the importance of dressing your baby in exquisite dress – a Christening gown is as big a part of the traditional Christening ceremony as the bride’s dress is on her Wedding day.
Emerald now also stock an exquisite range of flower girls dresses up to
age 8 . Did i mention they are also proud CZARQUE stockists

This week meet one of those inspiring woman Sarah Drysdale an Australian
living in Mumbai
cornflowerblue was founded by director Sarah Drysdale, who divides her time between Australia and India. Sarah began daydreaming of cornflowerblue after chatting with girlfriends in Mumbai about the lack of pretty, girlie clothes that are affordable and in the next breath... organic. This set Sarah off on an adventure, armed with the designs for her first collection, to find who made the most beautiful organic clothes in India. Sarah soon evolved the concept of cornflowerblue to include stocking other fabulous organic and fair labels from around the world.
Sarah based the idea for cornflowerblue on the belief that no matter what business we are in, we have a responsibility to care and to know about the impact we are having on our planet and the people who live here.
cornflowerblue gives Sarah the opportunity to combine her love of fashion and design with her unique charity work and her care for the planet.
“I have witnessed first hand the environmental degradation in developing nations as they try to keep pace with the demand to produce goods for the developed world. My family has walked in the slums of India, driven through farmland craving water and in need of better farming practices and breathed the polluted air of Hong Kong and South East China.
We all have a role to play; we can all bring about change in this world simply by demanding that goods be made in people and planet friendly ways.
I am lucky to have the opportunity to show children and women in the developing world that people do care. I love educating children so they don’t end up being one of 300,000 child laborers that are estimated to work in the Indian cotton fields. I enjoy handing out business starter packs to new beauticians living in the slums as they eagerly venture out to start their new business. I love seeing children wearing organic clothes that are kind on their skin and kind on our planet.
Like most mums, I have a soft spot for fashion and I love seeing my girls dressed up. My dream is for cornflowerblue to showcase fabulous fashion so that every child can look gorgeous. The desire is in everyone’s heart to see children, women and our planet protected.
“ Please support cornflowerblue so together we can show that fashion can be stylish while being planet and people friendly.”
Cornflower Blue are also stockists of the Fabulous Nanny Pickle , Eternal Creation, Cheeky Chickies and Eco Peko.
Go to www.cornflowerblue.com.au to take a look at the many ways cornflower blue are helping to make the world a truly better place.
Its inspired reading . Shop online at Cornflower blue and $1 from every item goes towards one of the charity projects they are working on.
