Here’s three little things that make me happy… 1. Receiving goodies in the mail. 2. Cosy socks hugging itty bitty feet on a crisp Autumn day. 3. Making a small difference in the life of a child in need. Our new friends at Sharing Small tick all three of these boxes, with a concept that is both fun and kindhearted. Here’s a little happy snap of our very first sock delivery from Sharing Small…
In a nutshell, Sharing Small is a sock subscription service. You can sign up for $10 per month to receive two new pairs of socks featuring the Sharing Small Explorers, off on a new adventure. Each month there is a new design, along with a matching postcard detailing the Explorers travels. This month it’s a parachuting adventure, as you can see pictured on those cute little socks pictured above (a bit small for the wee lad, but still super fun).
As well as the excitement of receiving their socks in the post, for every pair that your child receives, Sharing Small donate a pair to a child in need. You can find our more about Sharing Small supported charities here. So not only do you end up with warm feet; you’ll keep your heart nice and warm too!
For the price of a couple of cups of coffee ($10), this is a really fun service, and the price currently includes global shipping… what a fabulous deal! This is likely to change in the coming months, so be sure to get in early to secure your ongoing subscription at the current price.
Sharing Small socks are available in small (2-4 years), medium (5-8 years), and large (9-12 years). They’re made from combed cotton for superior comfort, and feature bright fun colour schemes.
*Note: KID independent was provided with a complimentary set of socks to try out. We were not paid for this review and the review represents our personal opinion. We think this program is genuinely awesome.
The brand new collection from Boys&Girls has landed at Small to TALL! You can expect to see toucans, flamingos, rainbow watermelons, and retro starbursts; playfully inspired by an Urban Carnival. The collection includes tees, crews, leggings, dresses, and skirts, in sizes to suit babies through to 8 years olds. I’m kind of obsessed with the colour palette… oh, and check out this Lightning Crew!

DAY 26 – MammaMia! It’s a super cool tee from SUNDAY the label! This stylin’ design is screen printed by hand onto a vintage black t-shirt. We love the gender neutral aesthetic, and the bold black and white matches effortlessly with leggings, jeans, skirts, or shorts.

Our lovely friend Giorgia from Cheeky Britches has joined us today to treat one lucky KID independent reader to a $75 voucher to spend on beautiful organic and bamboo pieces from her Finland AW15 collection. The Cheeky Britches range is amazing quality, and so, SO, soft! This giveaway is open worldwide, yippee! Scroll down to enter.
With focus on bold prints, relaxed feel and moody colours, the Cheeky Britches 2015 destination ‘Finland’ will be their most ambitious yet. The bold print in a deep navy was inspired by the tapestries of Scandinavian artistry. The playful deer and fawn graze under a delightful budded tree with birds of flight playing in the air and a dainty little rabbit at toe.
