Thursday, June 30th, 2022

Who doesn’t like online shopping? I mean, if we can scroll different brands for hours sitting on our couch then why not? Besides, you get your order delivered in a matter of days with easy return & exchange policies. But, is that all? How many times have we found ourselves as victims of Internet Fraud?

With kids shopping, online stores have really come a long way. You don’t have to carry your kid to the store and make them wear a hundred different outfits only to buy none. And this really annoys store owners (which is kind of unprofessional). But while there are so many fake online clothing sites that promise quality products at reasonable rates, the moment you make the payment, the money disappears, and so does your account with the fakers!

To help you, we have curated a list of mistakes that one must avoid when shopping for kids online such as the genuinity of the site, quality assurance, return and exchange policy, etc.

Things To Keep In Mind When Shopping For Kids Online

There’s just so much to consider when buying clothes for kids. The clothes need to be of a proper fit, they must be nice enough to suit your lifestyle and weather, they need to be comfortable, on a budget, and…pfft a never ending list it is!

Paying no heed to product descriptions –  Online shopping is a big  industry with both high-quality items and countless replicas. So, before making a purchase, check product reviews. Many times, we place orders in a hurry without reading the product specifics and end up with low-quality items that have no exchange policy. Reading user reviews and product descriptions can give you a good sense of what to expect.

Going for quantity over quality – Purchasing quantity over quality is alluring; the idea of getting multiple options for the price of one sometimes leads to the purchase of poor quality items that appear to be a good deal but aren’t. To begin with, we expose our children to skin illnesses like rashes and allergies. Second, after a few washes, these clothing wind up in a landfill, contributing to environmental waste. It is best to always purchase from reputable websites such as Cucumber!

Not buying right sized clothes – When purchasing baby clothes, it’s important to double-check that you’ve chosen the proper size. Different baby clothing websites have different size charts. So have a look and pick the best one for your toddler. Reading product descriptions can also guarantee that you get the right sized baby clothes. Always buying a size up might end up making your baby look like Baby Yoda (The little alien in a sack, it was cute tho..) Besides, they don’t grow up as fast as we think, the right fit will not dangle over their shoulders.

Choosing style over comfort – It’s fun to dress our kids up in cute, trendy outfits and share the pictures on social media with our friends and family. However, ignoring comfort while selecting outfits is a major blunder. It’s only natural that parents want to stay on top of the latest trends, especially with all the crazy designs and patterns out there. Consider the event and function you’re dressing your toddler for before selecting an outfit. It’s often best to stick to basics, such as Cucumber’s casual tees. You’ll want them to be able to move freely while they play and sleep, so make sure the material is soft and the clothes fit well.
