A brand that really struck us as outstanding in regards to design and fostering children’s autonomy, when it comes to dressing themselves, is mimOOkids Barcelona. We were really lucky to have Monika guide us through her collection and explain us everything in detail. Curious? Well, find out more ….
A premium eco kids label, made in Spain, with the desire to add a new purpose to kids clothing. Monika was tired of tiny openings for big children’s heads and impossible closings for small hands. She wanted to give little children the possibility to be more autonomous in their daily tasks and to push their learning-by-doing. mimOOkids believes in the importance of empowering children to do things on their own. Inspired by the learning method of the Italian doctor Maria Montessori, they provide innovative dressing solutions & Montessori textiles adapted to the children’s ages. This is a lovely way to boost the self-confidence, colour learning & fine motor skills of toddlers and children aged 0 to 8 years.
You will find colored velcros and olive wood buttons sewed on in the matching color. So your little ones know which button belongs onto which velcro strap, making it easy to close a jacket or cardigan without the help of another person.
The collection has many unisex pieces that can be worn year-round and are designed so that they will grow along with your kid.
