Our little ones can be a source of immense joy and inspiration when we’re shopping for new clothes online. From whimsical prints to charming designs, the online shopping adventure immerses us in a realm of creativity and style, where the smallest details bring immense delight. 

In this guide, we offer you practical tips on buying clothes for children online, from considering key factors to specific advice for boys, girls, and infants, we’ve got you covered!

Factors to Consider When Shopping for Children’s Clothing Online

A world of options awaits you in the online shopping world, but it's important to navigate this virtual realm with care. From ensuring quality and safety to finding the perfect fit, join us as we explore the key factors to consider, guiding you towards delightful and hassle-free online shopping experiences for your little ones.

Unlocking the Perfect Fit

The first thing you have to take into account is the size of your child. Baby clothes are typically labelled by size rather than age. While age can give you a general idea, it's important to remember that every child grows at their own pace. For instance, a baby may fit into a size 18-24 months even if they are younger or older than that age range.

From adorable rompers for infants to durable and trendy options for older children, find garments that not only fit their current stage but also allow room for growth, providing comfort and style as they embark on their unique adventures.

To ensure the perfect fit, always refer to size charts and measurements, as sizes may vary. Here at Minihaha, you’ll find that each product page comes with a size guide to help you make an informed decision. 

Take into account your child's current measurements and growth patterns, allowing room for comfort and movement. Additionally, consider customer reviews and feedback regarding the brand's sizing accuracy to make well-informed decisions.

Style Preferences

Of course, you must also consider your style preferences for your baby or child. For example, what kinds of clothes do you like to buy for them? Do you prefer looser clothes like dresses for girls or your typical onesie for babies?

Whether your kids adore vibrant colours, whimsical prints, or classic designs, look for brands that offer a diverse range of styles to suit their personality. 

Minihaha stands out from the crowd with our range of clothing designed to suit every age. We have a collection of dresses & playsuits for babies, unique knitwear, jackets and outerwear for boys and girls. And for those special moments, your kids will surely enjoy our range of Special Occasionwear.

Unveiling Comfort and Durability

Be sure to pay attention to fabric and material as well. Some materials will last countless wears and washes, while other delicate fabrics may not. 

We produce our range out of various natural fibre fabrics but most of them are crafted from either 100% Cotton or cotton/elastane, which means not only are they lightweight, but they’re also breathable and allow for ease of movement. Most importantly, they’re durable and resistant to wrinkling.

It’s also important to consider the season and climate to select appropriate fabrics, such as lightweight cotton for summer or cosy knits for winter, ensuring your child stays snug and stylish throughout the year.

Value in Every Stitch

Consider your budget and the value you place on quality and craftsmanship. Look for brands that offer a range of price points, allowing you to find options that align with your financial considerations while still maintaining the desired level of style and durability.

At Minihaha,  you can expect a price range of $50 AUD to $100 AUD for girls dresses and $18 to $70 for boys tops. 

Return Policy and Customer Service

When you make a purchase online, you will also want to ensure that there is a good return policy as well. You never know if the clothes will fit, and if they don’t, but there’s no return policy, you’ll be out of luck. 

A transparent and flexible return policy allows you peace of mind in case an item doesn't meet your expectations. Also, make sure they have a helpful customer service team to help you if needed.

Tips for Shopping for Children’s Clothing Online

Shopping for kids’ clothes online can be daunting if you have never tried it before. To make the experience a breeze, we've compiled a list of invaluable tips and tricks that will guide you through the virtual aisles, ensuring a seamless and delightful journey towards finding the perfect garments for your little ones.

Take Accurate Measurements

First and foremost, you need to measure your child. Make sure this is accurate, or the clothes will not fit. The clothing website should tell you which measurements to take and how to do it. ​​

Remember to measure regularly as children grow rapidly. Pay attention to any specific measurement instructions provided by the brand, and don't hesitate to reach out to their customer service if you need assistance. Taking precise measurements guarantees a well-fitting and comfortable wardrobe for your little ones.



Read Product Descriptions Carefully

Before you purchase anything, you will want to read the product descriptions carefully. Pay attention to fabric composition, care instructions, and additional details provided by the brand to make informed purchasing decisions and ensure suitability for your child's needs.

Insider Insights

Always, always, always read customer reviews! Something that looks adorable online may look different in person. Reading the experiences and opinions of other parents can offer valuable guidance on the quality, fit, and durability of the clothing. 

Look for reviews that address important factors like sizing accuracy, fabric quality, and overall satisfaction to make informed decisions and ensure a positive shopping experience.

Look for Discounts and Promotions

As a savvy shopper, remember to keep an eye out for sales, discounts, or promotions that can help make your chosen pieces more affordable. Here at Minihaha, we take pride in curating a collection of meticulously crafted and high-quality kids clothes available at irresistible prices.

Shopping for Boys’ and Girls’ Clothing Online

Now that you know how to go about buying clothing online, what should you buy? A few tips are below!

Popular Styles and Trends

If you have a baby girl, dresses for girls are trendy this season. They are fashionable, easy, and comfortable for your baby. Bodysuits are in for both baby boys and girls! 

For boys, track pants are currently trending and can be a stylish choice. They provide a comfortable and sporty look while keeping up with the latest fashion trends.

Outfit Ideas for Different Occasions

For a comfortable and stylish option, try our onesies for babies. Our onesies are not just your standard onesie—they come with special trimmings and unique prints, adding a touch of dressiness to your little one's outfit. Whether it's a typical day or a special occasion, our onesies offer both ease and fashion.

However, if you have a special occasion, you may want to look into a matching set with a top and bottom pair! They are extremely popular at the moment, as are rompers!

If you are shopping for a child between the ages of 3 and 7, dresses, jackets, cord pants, and sweatpants are all the rave! 

Dress your baby boy in a cord pantsuit for a day out and about, or keep them in sweats at home! Both are adorable. It’s always a great idea to look up featured products to stay up with the trends.
