Stylish must-haves for summer tots

Fish Tale

essentials

Emma och Malena

Sun, sea, salt and all manner of marine life feature in the kids collection of this Swedish brand, and we’re loving the design of this mackerel-print swimsuit. Ideal for mini surfers and sailors of all (nautical) stripes. £42;

Alexa and Alexa

Swan Song

essentials

Cam Cam

What’s more soothing than a swan? Perhaps that’s why Cam Cam chose the most serenely elegant of birds for this sweet musical mobile. Hang it above baby’s cot, pull the string and it plays a soft summer melody. Perfection. £30;

Nubie

Got Milk

essentials

Organic Zoo

This British brand marries covetable design with a commitment to fair trade and the environment, manufacturing  its collections in Europe using only 100% organic cotton and toxic-free dyes. We love its ethical packaging too.

Dragon Energy

essentials

Mini Rodini

We’ve said it before, but for all its imitators, Mini Rodini pretty much owns graphic animal prints – and this cap shows why. Boldly clashing colours and a dynamic lizard motif emblazoning a classic streetwear style, we’d wear it ourselves. £29;

The Mini Edit

Take Wing

essentials

Ancient Greek Sandals

What better way to ensure authentic sandal style than go direct to the source? Wasn’t it the Greeks who invented these things? This brand crafts cute sandals from natural, toxin-free leather. We love the winged Ikaria model. £95;
