Cotton On Kids: My Newest Shopping Destination

I have another confession to make: I love shopping for my girls. I mean, who doesn’t? There’s always something about shopping for them that makes me happy. And seriously, I prefer shopping for them than buying for myself. That’s why every time I go home with shopping bags on my hand, my husband will always give me a disapproving look and tell me it’s such a waste of money.

Okay, fine, I concede. Kids’ clothes these days are really expensive, sometimes even more expensive than adult clothes. But I always tell him that I don’t shop for them all the time and yes, kaligayahan ko ‘to. 

Anyway, Mothercare has always been my favorite store. It has everything I need for the girls – clothes, shoes, toys, high-chairs, walkers and even cribs. If I need a feeding set, Mothercare will also be on top of my list (though at times, I go to Youji and Me in case I don’t like the design of the feeding sets).

There is one problem: it’s pretty expensive compared to other brands. 

So, my mom introduced me to Uniqlo since they have kids section there. It’s cheaper than Mothercare but the clothes and the quality of the material are really good. The problem is there are only a few choices and during my visit two weeks ago, the kids section is full of bubble jackets. Apparently, my kids can’t use it here. Cotton On Kids 8

While strolling, I was happy to find out that Cotton On, a renowned brand from Australia, has a branch in Trinoma and yes, they have the entire store dedicated for kids. I first came across Cotton On Kids last September. They had 20% off sale on everything to celebrate their second year anniversary so I took the chance and bought clothes, leggings and shoes for my girls. I really liked the material so I said I’ll come back. And I’ve been going back ever since.

Everything at 30% off!

Yesterday, I went to Cotton On Kids again since my girls needed clothes for our upcoming trip up north. I was so happy to find out that they have sort of sale, like “Buy 2 long sleeves for P1,000” or “2 Leggings for only P800.00” so yes, I bought again and couldn’t resist myself from shopping.

Here’s why I love Cotton On Kids:

1. The material of the clothes.  Well, from the name itself, you will know that the clothes are made of pure cotton material. I’ve shared in my previous posts how sensitive my kids’ skins are. The only choices I have for them when it comes to their are pure cotton or organic material. I’m really glad that Cotton On Kids’ clothes are soft and gentle on their skin and is made of high quality products. It’s like they really tailored it to fit the needs of babies and kids and their sensitive skin.

2. Cute designs that fits best for kids. I’ve seen a lot of kids’ clothes that makes me want to say “Seriously?” I mean kids are supposed to be kids and as much as we want them to grow up, let’s not rush. What really caught my eyes and make me love Cotton On Kids more is the design of their clothes. It’s perky, it’s fun, it’s catchy, really cute and yes, age-appropriate. My eldest keeps on saying “Wow” and “It’s so nice” and even identify what animals or things are printed on the clothes. Cotton On Kids 3

3. Their price bundles. On its own, the clothes can be expensive. Their long sleeves costs P599 – P679 while the leggings is pegged at P549.00. Before you say, “ang mahal!” what I like about Cotton On Kids is that they sell their items in bundles. This means you get discounts when you buy two or more items so you can save more. The clothes are grouped according to discount to be given so all you have to do is to choose which design you’ll get from the rack. I bought long sleeves for my girls for only P1,000 while the leggings costs me P800.00. That’s more than P100 savings already, which is not bad.

4. Accessibility. I have a sort of rule: when it’s not in QC, then it will take sometime before I even see it. Braving the traffic is not exactly how I want to spend my day so as much as possible, I only go to places that are within Quezon City. Thankfully, Cotton On Kids found its way in Trinoma (if I heard it correctly, it is the first branch in the Philippines). I only get to spend 15 to 20 minutes from my home and yes, I can finally do my shopping without worrying about traffic.

5. Friendly and accommodating staff. I immediately see friendly faces every time I go inside the store. Even the cashier has been telling a lot of stories while I pay. She also asked for my number so she can inform me in case there are new products, sales and other promotions. I really like it when they accommodate me, and other shoppers of course. They immediately attend to my needs in case I’m looking for something, willing to answer my questions, and even make suggestions on what to buy.

6. It has everything I need. As much as possible, I want that one-stop shop type of stores so I don’t have to hop from one place to another. I’m glad Cotton On Kids has everything I need for my girls – clothes, shoes, cardigans, accessories, pants, and even little trinkets they can play with. You can just imagine how much time I spend going around the store.

Check it out mommies! It has sections for boys and newborns too, which are perfect for your tots 🙂

    Wow I had no idea Cotton On Kids was this affordable! P100 for 4 pairs of socks is even cheaper than SM! Will check it out next time I’m in the mall.

      Diba?? I thought it was expensive, considering its from Australia. But the clothes, when bought in bundles are really affordable 🙂 And I like the material too 🙂

    I love Cotton On! I have two girls so it’s my go-to store. I have a baby who wears cotton on bibs. I love how soft the fabric is and the colorful and girly designs.

    4 pairs of socks for p100 does sound like a good deal! 🙂 I need to get the tots some new ones. Will check it out, probably after the holidays though. Traffic’s crazy these days.

    I love Cotton On but no matter how hard I try, I can’t leave the store without something in my hands, be it for myself or for my daughter. 😐

    I myself love Mothercare but I find their items too expensive. Though there was a time that I was able to get a shirt for my son at 250Php. I haven’t tried looking at Cotton On yet. I might as well go check them out.. 😀

    I’ve been to Cotton On Kids here in Davao but I haven’t bought pa since the designs for boys are quite limited. But they’re really nice!

    I also buy clothes from Cotton On but like Maan, limited style sa boys so I prefer Uniqlo for my son.

    I don’t have a preference for brands for my kids. I’ll check Cotton on when I shop for their clothes for the holidays.

    I really love shopping clothes for my daughter back when she was still an infant but everytime I go home and my mom would see me holding a paper bag, she would reprimand me because sayang daw pera, the baby would grow up too fast sayang ang mga damit. (We sell garments kasi that’s why we don’t really need to shop, lol.. Pasayaw lang ako ^^)

    Oh, this is such a nice store for kids. I’ll drop by Cotton on Kids at SM Megamall later. I might find stuff for my son that he likes.
