William is 22 months – fast approaching the two year mark and a proper little toddler now. 98th percentile since he was born, he’s always been big and has shown no sign of slowing down. He’s been in 2-3 year old clothing since just before Christmas and it fits him really well right now. One of the downsides of having a big baby or toddler is the wear they absolutely tear through clothes, tiny little Hulk’s growing out of everything two minutes after we’ve bought them. I’ve sadly had to donate the last 18-24 month sleepsuits to charity as he was simply too long to wear them comfortably, and we’ve moved up into pyjama territory.
There’s something about pyjamas that says “all grown up” to me. I don’t know what it is – onesies and cute little sleepsuits with adorable phrases on I associate with babies and warm snuggles. Pyjamas I associate with older children and adults. Of all the things to trigger me, it was moving out of onesies and into his first pyjamas that made me realize just how fast he was growing up – although he’s always going to be my baby!
Now I get the fun of shopping for pyjamas, which I want to be soft and snuggly, warm and comfortable but also fun. We all wear pyjamas in this house, although I favour shorts and t-shirts or vest styles even in winter, whilst my husband likes something warmer. I love the feel of a new pair of pyjamas and I’m always looking for new designs, so when the family was asked to review some new pyjamas from The Pyjama Factory I was way more excited than is normal for sleepwear.
Hey Duggee Children’s Pyjamas
Choosing a pair of pyjamas for my son was an absolute no-brainer once I saw they had Hey Duggee prints. This is William’s absolute favourite TV show – to the point where he really isn’t interested in watching anything else. We have watched Season one on Netflix a dozen times and he still doesn’t get bored. Duggee is one of his most used words, and he loves the stuffed toy we bought him for Christmas.
Plus they’re bright, fun and absolutely adorable – just look at them!
My husband is way into Star Wars so he also went for a TV/Movie theme, although it was a tough choice as there are a lot of options, from traditional to pop culture.
For myself, I was pleased to see there are some very nice plus size ladies pyjamas, going up to size 20-22, and also some shortie sets. It was a hard choice, but as a Disney fan I went with this set which is super cute, lightweight and ideal for me to wear all year round as I overheat.
All three of us are very impressed with the quality of our pyjamas, and had a tough time choosing out of what must be hundreds of different designs. They’ve kept their size, shape and colour despite being washed and I think the value is really good for the quality. I’ll definitely be using The Pyjama Factory again in the future – probably quite soon for William since he’s outgrowing clothes at a ridiculous rate!
Note: This is a complimentary review post. I was gifted three pairs of pyjamas and asked to share my opinion on them. I was not otherwise compensated or instructed on what to write.
