The collab we never knew we always wanted:
Kip&Co x Cotton On!
OK, this is big. A pinch-yourself / phone your mum kind of moment. Today is the day the Cotton On Kids x Kip&Co collab goes live! Not since Run-DMC & Aerosmith teamed up on “Walk This Way” have we been this excited about a collaboration! (Are we showing our age?)
To fill you in, if you don’t already know, Kip&Co is a colourful Australian homewares and apparel brand founded by two sisters, Kate and Hayley and their bestie Alex.
And let’s face it, Cotton On kids needs no intro. If you’re like us, and have been breeding any time in the last 15 years, then your kids have almost definitely learnt to crawl, walk, run (and occasionally take a fall) in Cotton On Kids gear. Since 2005, they’ve been creating clothes for your adventure makers and rule breakers, day dreamers and creators, environment warriors and kindness advocators and they just want kids to be kids. Providing babies, kids, and teens with must have looks that make everyday extraordinary.
And while both Kip&Co and Cotton on are proud local Aussie brands, it’s their shared love for the colour of life that really sparked the idea for this collab.
This range is full of awesome signature Kip&Co prints for your whole tribe – bubs, girls, boys, teens and women – on all the all time favourite Cotton On styles. It’s a rainbow-coloured dream come true.
Available now online, and in a Cotton On Kids store near you on Monday 29th June.

Winter has arrived!
It’s the time of year again parents, where puddles are for jumping and mud is for squelching!
It’s no secret that outdoor play is so important for our kids. As parents, we don’t want to let winter get in the way of all the opportunities for our little people to learn about seasons and weather and how those things affect the big wide world around them.
Wet weather play gives kids the chance to experiment with all the textures and sensations that go hand-in-muddy-hand with the natural elements that respond to rain. Navigating slippery paths in the botanic gardens or soggy trails in the hills helps little people with their balance and coordination. Building shelters and cubbies to keep dry gives them a real world problem to solve with their siblings or friends.
But OH, the WASHING! And the cold, wet kiddos on the long drive home!
But you don’t have to be knee deep in wet, muddy clothes this winter, Nature Play SA’s popular waterproof onesie has got you (and your little one!) covered. Fitting easily over clothing and, coupled with gumboots, these onesies will keep your children dry all day. Little hands and faces can still enjoy the sensory grit of mud and the softness of rain.
Available in red and blue, Nature Play SA’s waterproof onesies are $35 and:
- ideal for active and quiet play
- light and roomy for ease of movement
- elastic sleeve/ankle cuffs for water protection
- hood for extra weather protection
- zip front for ease of access
- press studs at waist to readjust
- hi visibility strips
- available in small, medium and large
- bulk orders 10+ available for $30 each
