I have received some comments from my shop on Etsy and here on my blog that some of the colours I have used for my knitted items are too bright for kids and babies. It’s interesting because looking at the general stores for kids, I do see mostly darker colours – dark blue, black, gray, brown. Of course you see a lot of pink, white, red and green as well but they are usually quite subtle. I am starting to wonder if these stores really know what sells. They must know the secret. 🙂
Personally, I have always looked for brighter happier clothes for my kids. My son has only one pair of sweatpants in black and they have white trimming. I avoid buying black and dull colours because I do believe that colours affect children’s mood and perception of the world. I mean we make brightly coloured toys but most children’s clothing is plain and dull.
I have noticed the same thing with clothes for pregnant women. When I was looking for maternity clothes, all I could find were black, brown, navy colours that were so boring. Eventually I ended up buying regular clothes in bigger sizes, just to get some colour and joy in my outfits 😀
What is your opinion? Would you choose brighter coloured clothes and accessories for kids and babies or you prefer more neutral subtle colours? Please do tell me in your comments. I am very curious to know what you think.
