Accessorize the Extremities with Fairechild

In your selection of outdoor children's fashion, don't forget essentials like gloves, mittens, hats and warm socks, especially on cold days. Getting dressed to go out and play in nature can be a real human and creative experience when you turn to a committed and forward-thinking brand like Fairechild!


Realizing that in the face of change, our children have shown consistent fortitude, reminding us that any time spent outdoors, whether in a compact yard or an overgrown field, is a source of joy, Fairechild has created an AW21 collection of waterproof outerwear designed for daily contact with nature.

We have selected in this Fairechild AW21 collection, a fisherman hat and mittens. Two products 100% recycled, waterproof, windproof, machine washable, breathable, dirt repellant, made in Canada!


The Mitten is a 100% waterproof and gender-neutral solution for cold little hands. Layer with your own wool or fleece mitten for your required level of insulation as the seasons change. Extending to mid-forearm, these mittens will protect children’s hands and wrists from the rain and snow. Elastic keeps the fit snug.

The Sou'wester is styled after traditional fishers hats. A cutaway brim shields the face and provides extra coverage to the neck area. Thanks to Fairechild’s signature 100% waterproof fabric, the Sou'wester will protect children’s head and neck from the rain and snow. Made with an elastic to ensure that the fit is snug for children ages approximately three through ten.

Fairechild embraces a cradle-to-cradle philosophy; each of their garments is handcrafted from recycled materials and is completely recyclable. They aim to nurture joyous, mindful adventuring by providing responsibly made outerwear.

Sell Clothing for Sun Protection with Solette

Kids have thinner, more sensitive skin than adults, so it’s important to think about their exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays any time they’re outdoors. Clothing is a very effective way to add protection, and buying clothes that have an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) rating assures you of the protection it’s providing.


And guess what, we’ve just welcomed a new brand on the Playtime marketplace named Solette… and Solette's rashguard is a long-sleeved t-shirt with a ventral zip allowing children to put it on and take it off easily. They absolutely love this and it is perfect for both swimming and the outdoors!

And all you have to do is choose the pattern and color of the jackets you want to put in your window!
The flagship model of the Puffins sun safe swimwear line is a sailor shirt, a typical model of the French wardrobe, available in royal blue and water green punctuated by small puffins with coral beaks, which seem to play hide and seek between the stripes.
The fabric of the sun safe t-shirt comes from plastic bottle recycling and is made of 78% recycled polyester and 22% elastane. Items are certified UPF 50+& Oeko-Tex, and made in France.

If you couldn't make your choice in the models... take them all. They are available on the Playtime marketplace.

Be brilliant and safe with Swanmimi

When the days get shorter and the night sets in in the morning and evening, it's time to think about reflectivity for kids driving home from school. With today's technology, all it takes is a small logo or reflective piping on a jacket to make it highly visible when a pair of headlights sweep over it.


Japanese label Swanmimi launched its first collection in 2019, created by this brand concept from Japan's Yokohama.
"Fits you on rainy days, as well as on shiny days."
Swanmimi carefully chooses colors and shapes for the rainy season outfits. But their features are comfortable enough to wear whenever you want. The designs are fun, colorful and unisex.
