Label/branded clothing and toyrs- how to avoid label clothing
Posted 8:36 PM on Thu-21-Jun-2012
Hi, not sure if anyone else is in the same shoes but I swear i would never cave into the label clothing and label toys debacle but suddenly my boy has turned 9 today and I have ended up buying him a MGP scooter as apparently one from the warehouse is not good enough as it is not a MGP.  Is anyone else in the same boat where now they are recognising that label and brands are crucial?

As they get older it does get harder not to by any labeled clothing etc. We got a MGP scooter for Mr10 for xmas and he rides it everyday to school (he didn't want one if it wasn't a MGP). Luckily kmart and Farmers now stock them at a much reduced price and even better when they have a sale. Miss8 now wants one for her birthday, so are on the lookout for when they come on sale again. We buy the odd label shoes etc. for my older boys birthdays etc. Once again only at sales.

My older children are very much influenced by labels. Just this evening in fact my daughter purchased a surf label swimsuit.
We have a few rules in this house about labels. The first is never to buy at full price. The swim suit was 75% off. So im happy with that. The other is, nothing wrong with second hand. We often sweep the second hand stores. Know one knows you have purchased it second hand if you don't tell them. Thankfully however, my girls are also happy to buy other items, that don't have 'labels'.
