Jazzing things up is always a good idea, whether you're small or tall. But for now, we're all about the little people. Here's where to find sunglasses, hats, bags and jewellery made just for kids in Singapore.
We all know what a difference the perfect bag or pair of shoes can make to an outfit, and that a good hat isn’t just for keeping the Singapore sun off our shoulders. But for kids (that’s right, not ‘boys’ or ‘girls’… just kids) who love playing dress-up, accessories are a must. And generally, the more colours there are, the better. Whether it’s to pull together the perfect pirate-fairy-witch-princess costume, to add a splash of colour to an otherwise ordinary day during the lockdown or just because, kids’ accessories are adorable and the best ones last a lifetime. Here’s our pick of the shops in Singapore where you can buy the cutest kids’ accessories of all…
Where to buy kids accessories in Singapore
1. Flik Flak
More than just a fashion statement or a timepiece, these watches (above) help kids learn how to tell the time through an app featuring the playful pair of siblings, Flik and Flak. We can personally attest to loving these growing up, and we never took ’em off because they were so fun to wear! These clock hands love time almost as much as they love racing around the clock. Not only do these watches have the craziest designs, but the numbers are also printed larger for easier identification and they can withstand a little rough and tumble. These funky kids’ accessories even survive a trip through the wash!
2. Marks & Spencer
Popular with parents and kids around the globe, Marks & Spencer is a household staple, and you won’t want to miss the kids section either. We’re talking beanies, water repellent bags, headbands and so much more for your infants to toddlers. The kids will go wild for the backpack options here, from sequin, Disney princess and Avengers to Peppa Pig and leopard print too. The littlies are sure gonna look too cool for school!
3. Bambini Fashion
If your kiddos live in a world of princesses, stock up on the sweet wink tiaras at Bambini Fashion for a glam-up. This store has a great range of cute hair accessories like colourful headbands, scrunchies and hair clips for girls or boys, as well as a cute sock range too. Colourful and non-slip? Double yes!
4. Zalora Kids
Looking for a school essentials wardrobe upgrade for the kiddos? Zalora‘s kids section gives you endless options like backpacks, pencil cases, wallets and watches! For other accessories for when they’re getting ready to go out and about, don them with cute hats, sunnies, hair clips and even masks to spruce up their outdoor look!
Want to get the kids a new weekender backpack? Check out PriviKids’ range of 3D backpack shaped like your kid’s favourite animal, whether bear, bunny or even printed animal ones. If the babies are feeling left out, keep them engaged with an amusable range of plushies, soothers and bath toys. Too cute!
6. Oh Happy Fry
Take your play dates up a notch with some fun and fabulous kids’ accessories. Add a denim bucket hat to a little cute number, or some pretty flower hair clips to really make a statement. Plus, the folks at Oh Happy Fry also stock adorable animal socks, gorgeous floral headbands, a clear bear umbrella and other cute accessories to snazz up any day out or dreary day indoors.
7. Seed Heritage
We love Seed Heritage for how it screams summer – but sun hats and visors aren’t all they do. Kit your little seedling out with the most adorable unicorn socks and a stripe poncho. Or, opt for something more casual, like a pink bunny headband. For the boys, there’s no shortage of cool kids’ accessories, like an initial backpack and animal bucket hat. Totes adorbs!
We know and love it for us mums, but don’t forget Mango Kids! While the adult line is sleek and stylish, the kids’ line is bright and flamboyant while still remaining fashionable and channeling urban chic. Girls can rock the hats, scarves and jewellery, while boys look extra dapper all strapped together in blazers, belts and clear frame sunnies. Pop on a set of blazer or a beanie on the tot and you’re ready to hit the streets!
9. Little Odd Forest
With 100% self-designed and handmade woodland-inspired creations, Little Odd Forest brings a little quirkiness to any outfit. Made for the young as well as the young at heart, any kid (or parent, for that fact) would be happily flaunting their sleepy cat backpack everywhere they go. Tired of carrying a backpack? Swap it out for a sloth wristlet or a drawstring hand-carry bucket purse and your kid’s good to go. You could also choose to add an adorable animal felt pin to a plain T-shirt to change things up in the wardrobe section. Plus, there’s even little woodland-themed booties for the bub, too.
If you say you can’t accessorise at school, you’re not trying hard enough. Even a lanyard for a bus pass or wallet becomes a statement piece. Smiggle’s the shop to hit when you’re hunting for those back-to-school goodies. Kids suffering from back-to-school blues will cheer right up with a rainbow of stationery, keychains and water bottle.
11. Cotton On Kids
For mums saving up for that weekend getaway, Cotton On Kids has a massive range of affordable water bottles, backpacks, scrunchies, sunglasses, flip flops and other kids’ accessories. Meaning as well as some new goodies, you’ll still have leftover dosh for some new threads. Sorted.
H&M has it nailed when it comes to affordable kids’ accessories. They’ve got the cool-functional blend just right too, with sweet jewellery, hair accessories, hats, gloves, umbrellas and so much more. Plus, you know you can’t go wrong when they already have plenty of clothing options that we love. All the kids have to do is pick out which colour they like best!
