Delivery Changes

Just a quick update to let you all know that we have changed our delivery options. All orders for delivery in Australia are now posted via Express and are calculated by weight as follows...

Orders up to 500g: $8.00 for EXPRESS delivery within Australia
Orders over 500g: $10.00 for EXPRESS delivery within Australia

$10.00 for regular delivery to New Zealand

$20.00 for regular delivery to the Rest of the World

FREE Local Pick Up for Birchip Area Only (Western Victoria)

Orders placed before 11am will be dispatched the same day (Mon-Fri), and all orders placed after 11am will be dispatched the next business day.

Everything else is still the same, but as we are getting busier and orders are getting larger, we needed to streamline the delivery process. We feel that $10 for larger orders overnight (for most areas) is still a pretty good deal!

check out these delightful shoes ...

Yesterday saw a HUGE shipment of shoes arrive, and they are simply delightful! It's always a bit hard to try and predict what colours to use, what designs to go with and how to pull them together so that they look 'ok' but I think that this range is lovely with a good mix of brown, beige and black for Winter.

All in all, there are 17 new designs and a large range of sizes. All the uppers are high quality lamb leather which is the softest on little feet, they are all fully leather lined making them breathable and the innersoles are padded for comfort. Slight inner arch support, flexible TPR rubber soles and a padded tongue make these the most comfortable shoes around .. no wearing in and no blisters! Just cute and comfortable shoes right from the very start .. and the price? An absolute steal at $35 a pair! Drop in to Kawaii Kids and pick your little man or lady up a pair today!

Going crazy for Bento Boxes!

I've had numerous customers ask me 'when are you going to get bento boxes in? They are soooo cute ...' and I am happy to say we now have some in stock. Woo hoo! 

Imported from Japan, they come in a range of different designs and sizes, and I must say they are extremely kawaii! I've priced them all at $20, so they are not only adorable but also affordable. They are microwave safe, and perfect for kinder, school and any snack time.

Easter 2010

Easter this year saw us going camping with my family at Rocklands Reservoir in Western Victoria. Due to years of drought, water is minimal but still campable none the less. On Friday we packed the kids up and headed bush!

Connor and Imogen had a lot of fun, got very dirty and ate a lot of easter eggs! They loved sitting around the fire in their little chairs, and kept everyone entertained (and on their toes to ensure they didn't get to close to the campfire). There was a couple of other boys there and Connor had a lot of fun running around with them and playing 'monsters'. At night we sat around the campfire and ate (lots of chocolate, marshmellows and chips ... so healthy!) and had a couple of drinks.

Here is Imogen devouring a piece of Aunty Susan's hedgehog (it was delicious!) and Connor and Imogen at the tent. Connor took his 'best friend' baa along for the trip (Baa is a very grotty toy lamb that he's had for years .. well, it's his second one, he just doesn't know it! He went through a 'soapy wash' and came out all fluffy one day ..! Almost time for a 3rd ...) and we were informed later that Baa 'loved camping'.

I took their Fluffy Anpanman Jackets as it was so cold at night and in the mornings: the little jackets were great during their first proper test run! Very thick and warm, and when I got home, through the washing machine .. easy!

Here is a pic of me with my gorgeous sister Bianca, Connor dancing with the shovel (strange boy!) and my other gorgeous sister Kendra and her boyfriend Jayden. Kendra spent most of the time studying (the fun part of being a uni student!), but it was great to catch up with my sisters. Jasmin popped out for a few hours on Saturday, so we got to see everyone.

Easter morning saw Connor and Imogen up early and devouring their eggs! Imogen was straight into them, as she just loves chocolate (I must be honest and say that she takes after her mother) and Connor was happier with the toys inside one of his eggs then the eggs themselves. They had a great day and were so spoilt!
We came home on Sunday afternoon and I spent the whole week washing everything .. campfire smoke just gets in everywhere! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter with your family and friends as well. x

A tiny little sneak peek ...

Some really amazing and super cute clothing will be at Kawaii Kids any day now, and I just wanted to give you a tiny sneak peek. With so many awesome things arriving, we are going to be extremely busy but I just get so excited when new stock arrives ... I love it! Due to demand, we are introducing some really pretty girl ranges, and the boys lines will have a bit of a attitude. I love my job ;o)

We are loving Little Angels!

I just wanted to introduce this gorgeous new online store: Little Angels! Kellie has put together a classy range of clothing for babies and toddlers, and has included some Kawaii Kids pieces in it (she has such good taste!). You will see our bum print leggings and shorts, as well as some of our very cute mary jane socks ... along side some super cute ruffle bum bloomer sets for the girls and trendy little hoodies for the boys. Simply a stunning store.

We are back from The Baby Show!

We had the most wonderful time at The Baby Show in Melbourne. It was great to not only show off our gorgeous range, but to meet so many of our customers. Our stand was very busy for the full 3 days, and I loved every minute of it. Although I didn't get much of a chance to have a look at everyone else's stands, I did meet some wonderful people with some amazing products. Kawaii Kids will be exhibiting again next year, and I already can't wait! I have so many fun plans for our stand, and to see it all come together over the next 12 months will be exciting! Thank you to everyone to dropped in to say hi: it was a pleasure meeting you all!

(Some very ordinary photos: our stand was the biggest rush but it all came together ok in the end!)

Kawaii Kids is going to The Baby Show!

I've decided to bite the bullet and show our gorgeous range at The Baby Show in Melbourne this coming weekend. It's such a HUGE decision as I haven't done anything like this at all, ever! Nerves are setting is but so is the excitement! I love my store, and I love the products, so to go out and actually show the public what Kawaii Kids is all about ... it's going to be lots of fun!

We will be having some Baby Show Only specials, and will also be taking our left over stock from Soda Pop Kids to sell at bargain prices. If you are in Melbourne and going to the show, you will find us at Stand 61 (next to a really cool toy place that I can't wait to shop at!). The Baby Show runs from March 5, 6 and 7, 9.30am-4.30pm each day ... hope to see you there! x
