The Circus Is In Town!

Is anyone else as obsessed with the new Mini Rodini AW14 kids’ clothing with the strong man on it, as I am? I discovered it last week while browsing Scout & Co Kids (one of my favourite online stores) and it reminded me how much I love circus themed stuff for kids. And there are lots of things to choose from at the moment – the big top is having a bit of a ‘moment’. Here are a few of my favourite circus buys for kids …

Circus buys for kids


1. Mini Rodini t-shirt and leggings, from £23

2. Zara Kds Home cutlery, £4.99

3. Maileg wooden circus mice wagon, £16 and ringmaster mouse, £14

4. Great Little Trading Company circus play tent, £25

5. Missus Print circus print, £25

6. Make your own big top party hat with this tutorial from Oh Happy Day.

Which is your favourite? I vote for Mini Rodini and Maileg…

    Oh I got properly excited when I saw the subject of this post – I’m really into circus stuff at the moment too. I love the cutlery and the cute poster. Well done for resisting the line ‘roll up, roll up’ (unlike me when I wrote my circus tent post ha!).

    These are all really cute choices! I guess I ought to buy a few just to go with my blog name! Haha! The party hats are giving me inspiration for next year. I wonder if I could talk T into a circus party…

    Mini Rodini for me! Love it. There’s that brilliant Ikea circus tent I’m always tempted by when we go too.

    Ok seriously how cute are those strong-man printed t-shirt and leggings. I really love Scout & Co – they have some lovely things that are also unusual 🙂

    love the cutlery set, and that party hat looks cute too!

    Love the mini rodini range but I just cannot justify spending that much on my children- maybe the odd piece here any there but it’s just too much for them to get sick, mud and crap down it on a regular basis. A shame cause I love their style! x

      Agree! I lust after it and then have to wait for it to go in the sale. Note to self: must win lottery.

    I have always loved Circus. I have my eye on some vintage circus prints for Addison’s room when we finally move.
