Joe is now two and my generally sweet and sunny boy has a level of OPINIONS about clothes that I’d expect from a teenage primadonna not a toddler. Put him in blue trousers when he wants his GREY TROUSERS and he’ll tear them off and hurl them across the room, and he screams as if the world has ended if I choose the hoody top instead of the cardi he wants to wear that day…
Thankfully he likes this lovely, simple, comfy, stripy top just as much as I do, and lets me put it on him – even helps me put it on him sometimes! This and the ‘red guitar’ body are both of our favourites at the moment. Who knows how long we will share a taste in clothes, but I’ll enjoy it while it lasts! And I am enjoying it, because he looks just great in this – it’s soft and snuggly as you’d expect from Frugi, washes well, the colours are bright and lovely and it goes with absolutely everything and anything so it’s perfect for everyday wear.
My only issue is with the very wide neck . Joe is small and skinny so it may be wider on him than others, but he is over the age range for this size but it’s still almost ‘off the shoulder’. In this icey cold winter (and wet cold summer…), I often want a vest/body underneath and this nearly always shows – which doesn’t bother Joe of course, but a slightly slimmer neck would look neater and still allow plenty of head space.
Like many of the Frugi boys range, I wouldn’t see this as an exclusively ‘boys’ item -any big brother could pass it on to a little sister .
