Kidorable Review & Giveaway!


The Kidorable Story

In 1997, Kidorable sprung from the minds, hearts and efficiency apartment of Liping and Jonathan Domsky. They proclaimed, "The world needs someone to create children's apparel and accessories that are both functional and fun. We can do that." 

And so Kidorable was conceived. Starting with lions and cats and bears, oh my, manifested as umbrellas and hangers, Kidorable generated enough sales during its first year to break even and plant fruitful Kidorable seeds throughout the land. The following year sales grew ten fold. Every year since, give or take, a new style and/or product line debuted. And every year, the world joyfully embraced more Kidorable delights, give or take, than the year before. 

Children, it turns out, absolutely and unconditionally love Kidorable (almost as much as their parents and other children-loving grown-ups do.) 

In its first three years, Kidorable grew from a hopeful startup to a thriving business with $2 million in sales. Ever since, Kidorable has continued to blossom, evolving into a flourishing global enterprise, contributing to the success of dozens of sales professionals and thousands of retailers, with sales projected to exceed $10 million by 2010. 

Throughout its first decade, the key to Kidorable's success has been growth. But not growth simply in the financial sense. For the ultimate Kidorable customers - kids - it's all about growing imaginations. For Kidorable's employees, it's all about nurturing personal and professional growth. And for everyone touched by Kidorable, it's about growing smiles. For Kidorable, growing larger is a natural and happy consequence of growing better, individual by individual. 

Today Kidorable is a striking presence, not just in stores, but across the vast landscape of the children's apparel and accessories industry. By encouraging personal and professional growth in the service of imagination and smiles, Kidorable's own growth projections continue to soar. 

I was generously sent three Kidorable items  from the Ladybug Collection for the purpose of review on this blog!!!


First I was sent the Ladybug Rain Coat. It is absolutely adorable!! My three year was so excited when I showed her the coat. She wanted to wear it everywhere. However, because of the winter season and living in Canada, it is not warm enough to wear only a rain coat:) She was willing to settle on wearing it around the house. It is so nice and bright, has tons of details (ladybug features), easy to clean materials (PVC) and easy to use snaps (perfect for an independent dresser like my daughter). Available in sizes My First (1T), 2T, 3T, 4T, 4/5, 5/6 and 6/6X. All coats now come with a FREE matching Kidorable hanger. My daughter and I both loved the ladybug designed hanger that also comes with the rain coat!!! The Ladybug Rain Coat sells for $36


I also received the Ladybug Rain Boots. These boots are made of natural rubber and I just know my daughter will love to wear these in the spring or even through our winter, when it warms up a little bit. I love the detail on the toes with antennas, eys and spots!!! My daughter put them on right away and walks around the house wearing them!!! These boots are a definite hit and I know we will be doing a ton of puddle jumping in the Spring for sure!!!  All styles are available in My First (size 5), children’s sizes 6-13, plus young adult sizes 1 and 2.   These boots sell for $29.



The final item that I was sent was the Ladybug Umbrella. I cannot wait to see my girls using this umbrella in the Spring!

It is so bright and I love that its not like the typical child size umbrellas. Its so unique. Made of 100% nylon, Kidorable umbrellas are child-sized for those little hands.

The Ladybug Umbrella sells for $13.50



I love that Kidorable has a huge variety of items and themes. For both the little boys and girls in your life. There are an incredible 22 designs for the umbrellas, 16 designs for the raincoats, and 16 designs for the rain boots. Kidorable also carries knit outer wear accessories (hats, mitts and scarves), hangers, t-shirts, backpacks, sun hats and bath towels!
