My kids are rough with their clothes. They love to roll around on the grass, wrestle with the dogs and even use the carpet in the living room as a slip n’ slide (yes, this actually happened). To say it bluntly, cheap, low-quality clothes just won’t do. My son will have holes in the knees of cheap jeans within 24 hours and while my daughter loves dresses, she is also known for ripping holes by playing rough in them.
We are all looking to save a buck but sometimes quality wins out. An unfortunate side effect is that it can be a pain on the pocketbook. To help, I try to shop online sales for some of my favourite kids retailers and once per year I do a big shop in the US at the outlet’s. I have tried consignment shops but with my busy schedule, I find it difficult to find time (or energy) to go through each rack in search of maybe one or two pieces that both fit and are the style my kids like.
Recently I was introduced to Boomerang Kids. They have actually been in business for 20 years but recently began offering online shopping. BoomerangKids.com online shopping portal is brand new and makes it North America’s first children’s resale store where you can buy in-store or online.
Online is music to my ears.
While you have the option to pick up in store (they have 8 stores including a new location in Vaughan), they also offer shipping at a very reasonable $10 flat rate! *queue angel music*
Another great perk is that every item is inspected by staff before shipping. I received a phone call within a few hours of placing my order – they noticed one of the shirts I had chosen was not in the condition that they had listed on the site and offered me a refund immediately. I was very impressed.
Every piece was exactly as described and the sizing was true. I didn’t have to return anything, however had I needed to, their Returns Policy was clearly outlined and appears to be very easy and straightforward.
Would I use Boomerang Kids again? Absolutely! It was fast, easy and I was very impressed with the clothing. My daughter is in LOVE with her new-to-her DKNY shoes and Gap Kids dress. Okay, so she loves it all and absolutely loved modelling it all poolside for the photos (we are currently on the March Break vacation I bought the clothes for).
Be sure to check out their website http://www.boomerangkids.com/ for their latest inventory – not only do they sell clothing, they also carry toys, maternity wear and baby gear! Remember, it’s only $10 flat rate shipping or you can get FREE in-store pickup at one of their 8 locations. If you end up buying, please come back and comment below with your experience!
