Migration

More with Less Thanks to KEEDO

 

Keedo International wins hands down as my brand of choice with my toddler’s wardrobe as we prepare for our travels to South America. Preparing to emigrate takes on a completely different definition when it comes to getting things ready for a toddler. I have emigrated by myself before, so I do know that failing to prepare is preparing to fail. This can only be 100% more true when it comes to preparing for our children.

HERE’S WHY KEEDO WORKS BEST FOR ME

 

I CAN WASH THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS OUT OF THEIR GARMENTS.

 

Thanks to the great quality, the little clothes always survive my laundry habits. My daughter has clothes from KEEDO that have been part of her “school uniform” for almost a year now, and they all still look beautiful on her.

Her grey hoodie top with the mustard zip has been washed at 40 degrees, 60 degrees and 90 degrees with aggressive stain remover while the label from KEEDO states “lukewarm machine wash at 30 degrees”. I am by no means recommending that you wash their clothes like I have. I am merely stating that the quality of that hoodie’s cotton is immaculate. Even the zip is still flawless.

I AM ABLE TO MIX AND MATCH FEWER ITEMS TO CREATE A VARIETY OF OUTFITS.

 

When we are travelling through South America, I plan to pack as light as possible. I’ll be doing laundry more often rather than packing more outfits to cart around with us.

KEEDO makes this easy for me because every season their entire range appears to have a matching theme. When I walk into their store, I see all the clothing items come together in harmony. It feels to me like their designers really have a parent’s practical needs in mind.

MY CHILD LIKES CHOOSING GENDER NEUTRAL CLOTHES.

 

Gender neutral items make it so easy to mix and match outfits. This helps my child to dress her outfit up or down. Sometimes I wonder if I’ll be ending up with a girl who likes a boyish style like Angelina Jolie’s Shiloh. I certainly don’t mind having a little Shiloh but sometimes I just wonder if my daughter’s obsession with blue clothes is natural and age appropriate. I love that KEEDO also accommodates little girls who love blue.

It feels to me like KEEDO knows how to cater for girls who want to dress like boys sometimes, but still want to have their nails painted and wear a handbag and a pretty headband. I really like the splash of navy #ontrend that is currently on the shelves in the girl’s section.

KEEDO DESIGNS THEIR CLOTHES WITH MY CHILD’S ACTIVE LIFESTYLE IN MIND.

 

Comfort, flexibility and mobility are the first things I look for when buying clothes for my child. Not only for my child, but also for me. Her clothes need to be easy for me to handle when I need to help her to get dressed.

We, my daughter and I, are not personally into gorgeous party outfits, but that’s only because I mostly avoid the fancier fabrics. Nevertheless, KEEDO do cater for dressing up whilst always keeping comfort in mind.

THEY REALLY DO HAVE AN OUTFIT FOR ANY OCCASION, LIKE FLYING ON AN AEROPLANE.

 

I chose two beautiful outfits that are so comfortable that they resemble pyjamas. Plus, I have been able to repurpose the tops and bottoms of these comfy aeroplane outfits to create more outfits with fewer items.

I GET THE BEST VALUE FOR MONEY FROM KEEDO

 

I get the best bang for my buck from KEEDO. To me, affordability is a problematic word because it represents a dangerous concept in my own money matters with raising kids. Something can be very “affordable” to me and actually end up costing me much more. The cost can even be so deeply hidden that I can’t see it straight away.

There is a huge difference between price and value. And, on top of that, value equates to different things for different people with different value systems. For example, a mom might see huge value in spending R100 on a houseplant while a dad may think there is more value in spending that R100 on 12 beers because he just thinks the plant will die. But I digress.

According to my calculation (and testing), KEEDO International offers the best value for money in its price class.

With Love and Gratitude,

    It looks like real value for money – love how the quality looks; and it’s good that it looks gender neutral.

      Thanks Melissa. I have never been disappointed with the quality of their clothes. Some of their headbands and accessories are “fast fashion” items and haven’t always lasted very long for me but my child’s behavior is most often quite boyish too. LOL.
