Spring Clothes Shopping with Cookie’s Kids #cbias #CookiesKids

I always love buying the kid’s new clothes but I don’t love spending a lot of money.  Sometimes though when you spend less, the quality of the clothes isn’t so great.  After hearing some great about Cookie’s Kids, I decided to check them out for myself.  Ryan, my 4 year old, just started preschool and could really use some new clothes.  Since we live in San Diego, I decided to check out some shorts outfits.  It may get a little chilly in the mornings here but he’s always warm after running around at school.


The first thing I noticed when I got to, was that all the departments were organized into really simple drop down sections.  I was pleased to find that not only did they have shorts & spring-type outfits, but that Cookie’s Kids also had a really great selection of shorts sets.  I love buying things in sets because it usually means they are priced lower.  I started looking through the shorts sets and was pleasantly surprised at the great prices!  The outfit I chose below, retails for $32 but is only $9.99 at!  I certainly can’t afford to pay $32 for every outfit I buy my kids, but I sure can afford $9.99! Boys Shorts Sets

I chose 3 outfits for my son: Sahara Club “Boat House” 2-Piece OutfitSahara Club “Birds & Laurels” 3-Piece Outfit & another color of the Sahara Club “Boat House” 2-Piece Outfit.  These 3 outfits would retail for $120 total for just the 3 outfits!  However, when I bought them through, I only spent $34.97 (plus tax & $5.95 shipping (every day, every order in the 48 contiguous US states)). Not only is that a great deal, all 3 outfits can be mixed & matched with each other so it’s almost like I bought him a new wardrobe!

Girls Dresses #CookiesKids

Since everything was such a great price, I then headed on over to check out Girls Dresses.  My daughter is 10 and loves dresses but doesn’t like anything flashy.  I decided on the Star Ride “Kiss the Sun” Dress in orange.  She will definitely be able to wear this through summer but for right now, she can pair it with leggings, a little cardigan & her favorite boots and she’ll look cute and fashionable. Plus, the dress was only $8.99!  You can’t beat that!


Another great feature I found while I was at was the AlvaKids sizing guide.  I wasn’t certain what size Ryan would need for his new clothes.  He’s a big boy at 4 years old & is already right between the toddler’s section & the big boy section.  This makes shopping online really difficult.  The AlvaKids sizing guide let me put in his height, weight, birthday, body proportion & ethnicity to determine what size he would need.  I was curious as to why they would need his ethnicity for this so I clicked on the little ? next to the drop down box & this is what it said: “When your kids grow, their AlvaKids profiles will grow with them. Our growth calculation takes ethnicity into account to make sure you get accurate recommendations now and in the future.”  What a great feature!

#CookiesKids is also a great place to shop if your child wears school uniforms.  My kids don’t wear uniforms but I’ve heard from friends how expensive it can be.  Cookie’s Kids has a great selection of polo shirts, jumpers, sweaters, pants & more from brands you trust like French Toast, Nautica & more.

School Uniforms #CookiesKids

Ryan really loves his new outfits and can’t wait to go back to school to wear them.  I love that they are well made, stylish & didn’t cost a fortune!  I will definitely be shopping at Cookie’s Kids again VERY soon!  I’ve already got my eye on their Easter clothes (how adorable are these boys suits?!?!)  To check out more photos of my shopping experience at, please head over to my Google+ album.  Also, if you’re ever in the NYC area, Cookie’s Kids has 7 stores in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Jamaica areas, as well as online at  Make sure you head over & like Cookie’s Kids on Facebook & follow them on Twitter.
