Pink banana hooded cardy & pull-ups stripetastic review

Product Review by Joy P – Frugi Customer & Crusader

Pink Banana Hoody >
Stripy Pink Banana Pull-up Trousers >

I love the pink banana range, it’s such a great combination of colours that makes you smile, and the flower on the pocket is a great bold signature.  The fabric is really comfy and the elasticated trousers are really easy to put on.  The cardy has a good chunky zip and one pocket.  My toddler finds them very comfy and loves the stripes – she calls them her Tombliboo trousers in homage to favourite stripey-clad tv characters!

I have treated the hoody as a reversible top because I like the stripes, but you do have to cut out the washing label to do so – perhaps it could go in the pocket on future versions to save having the stump of the label showing?

My daughter has worn the pull-ups much more than the hoody, due to the weather and time of year, but it’s good to note that they still match despite a big disparity in the amount of washing each has had.

My only quibble with these is that it’s very hard to match them with anything else!  They look great with the Frugi gypsy flower tee (I think now discontinued and only left in the sale? But maybe [in hope] there will be another version coming, or even a long-sleeved one?) and ok with a plain white t-shirt, but I’ve had to accept that this is a distinctive outfit that stands alone – the price you pay for an unusual and stylish colour combo!
