I was first introduced to JoJo Maman Bébé about a year ago after receiving a gift for my 6-month-old son: The precious fisherman’s yellow rain coat. He’s worn the rain coat for the last year, and I have been so impressed with the high-quality craftsmanship and material. It’s cotton lined for coziness and protects against rain and wind. The coat has maintained a “like new” look and feel despite the best efforts of my little guy. So, when JoJo asked me to test out their latest clothing line, I couldn’t wait to try more of their unique styles.
Each of my boys (ages 5, 4 and 1) received an outfit in their true size and they all fit perfectly. My 18-month-old received the twill, short-baby overalls in navy, which they paired with a striped polo-shirt bodysuit. The overalls have adjustable button straps so they will last all season. It was easy to change him with the snap legs and side openings, and I received compliments on his outfit all day. (Even Prince George has been seen around London in these cute trousers!)
For my 4-year-old, they sent vibrant, red-twill chino shorts paired with the Harvard Airplane tee. When first trying them on, I was afraid they might be too small, but they ended up fitting perfectly because of the elastic waist. A nice aesthetic touch—the elastic waist is only visible in the back, so they still give the impression of a flat front. They were adorable on him! The shirt material was extra thick, so it should wear quite well.
Finally, my 5-year-old received twill turn-up pants in khaki, paired with the nautical scene tee. With the option to roll them up, they will be a perfect transitional pant for the spring or fall days which start cool but heat up in the afternoon. And the tee was extra thick, high-quality fabric.
My boys—who are usually clad in gym shorts—never complained the clothes were uncomfortable to play in. And the best part: Everything was machine washable and did not fade in the dryer. I found JoJo’s prices to be slightly elevated versus peer brands, but well worth it based on the durability. This European company is definitely poised to do big things on this side of the pond, so check them out if you’re looking for high-quality, stylish clothes for your little ones.
