Quality Children’s Clothing with Hartstrings at Baby Baby Inc. (#CBias)


As the mother of three young boys, (ages 7, 4, 2 years) I am always looking for clothing that is stylish, durable, and comfortable.  Here they are in the picture below this Christmas with handmade sweaters from my very talented Norwegian cousin.

Obviously these sweaters are special, but I want to dress them in similar clothing all year round.   I must admit I have purchased quite a bit of their clothing at several national discount chains.  What happens to many of these items?  They do NOT make it to son #3 to wear.  Instead they rip, shrink, or lose their color.

A better philosophy is to purchase quality, stylish, classic clothing that each of my sons can have a turn wearing.

I recently visited Baby Baby Inc. in Rochester, Minnesota to check out Hartstrings clothing.  This high quality children’s clothing line is a step up from our normal brands.

The shop owner, Georgia Hurley, was very helpful and friendly explaining the various brands and layout of the store.  I was immediately excited to find most of the boutique was on sale!  Many items were marked down 20% while others were 40% off.   Phew!  This provided some relief for me as I almost never purchase anything at full price.

I was immediately taken in by the vibrant colors!

Obviously I was going to have a hard time deciding what to get!  I love it all!  Frequently I find the boys section in many stores to be lacking in selection.  I was delighted to find a plethora of options.  Here are some of my favorites for boys.

This is adorable, but I need something for older boys.

My boys would love the airplane on this sweater, but my four year old currently detests sweaters so I better not get this one.

I love the bright colors in this shirt.

Again I love all the sweaters!  But I better not purchase one, even though my seven year old enjoys wearing them.

Hartstrings sells children’s clothing for ages newborn through size 14.    I was immediately concerned that they would only have younger children’s clothing I was pleased to discover I would have no problem finding something for my eldest.

And even though I don’t have any girls myself, I couldn’t help but notice these adorable outfits!

I love the pink and purple in this one!

So precious!  I love the bow detail.

What did I finally decide upon?  This classic brightly colored polo shirt.   I find it to be stylish yet comfortable.

He likes it! The cloth of this shirt is a bit thicker than most and will provide extra durability I need.

While I am not inclined to purchase clothing at full price, the discount I received made this shirt completely worthwhile especially if you consider all three boys will wear it.   I paid $26.40 for a shirt that was normally priced at $44 (a discount of 40%).

Georgia kindly informed me of a special Winter Season Close-Out Sale that will take place Jan. 19th, 20th, and 21st at the Kahler Hotel ballroom.   This is an excellent time for me to stock up on quality boys clothing at a discounted price.  Gotta love a sale:)

  2. Your boys are adorable. I have two boys and I have also been more conscious about what I buy so it will last longer for the second one and possibly third. Boys are so rough on clothes, it is nice to see another brand that makes high quality boy’s clothing that is so cute and different than what everyone else has

  3. you made some great choices- so cute!
