When you start shopping for children’s clothing, one of the most iconic brands that you’ll hear about is The Children’s Place. They have been known to cater to a variety of parents with different styles, whether they’re looking for loungewear for their toddlers or formalwear for their 6 year olds. All of the items that they have in their inventory are fashion forward and have a similar appeal to other competing brands such as Justice and Crewcuts. The main difference is that The Children’s Place is more accessible than Crewcuts and offers more than just girls’ clothing, unlike Justice.
Founded in 1969, The Children’s Place was always a store where parents would be able to find garments for their young boys and girls. Over the years the brand decided to make their collection appealing to every child of nearly every age so they began to expand their inventory. They established 4 different size categories: Big Girls and Big Boys (4-14) and Baby Girls and Baby Boys (6 months – 4T). This helped to give parents an all-inclusive shopping experience for all of their children. One of the most unique aspects of The Children’s Place is that they once owned 335 different Disney Stores that you could either find in your local mall or in standalone stores. By 2007, they decided that it was time to sell the rights back to Disney and by 2008; the majority of the Disney Stores had been sold back to Disney.
The main reason as to why The Children’s Place offers more modern and adaptable clothing lines is because the former CEO of Lord & Taylor, Jane T. Elfers, currently runs the company. As one of the most popular fashion designers for modern young adults and middle-aged men and women, the impeccable fashion sense of the brand transcends onto the clothes that you’d find from The Children’s Place. Parents can also take a look at beautifully designed glittered merchandise much like what you would find from Justice. Also, they have an exclusive line of tailored and preppy pieces that are similar to Crewcuts.
If you’re looking for high quality girls’ clothing and boys’ clothing for all ages up to size 14, The Children’s Place is a retailer to take into consideration. The company currently has over 1085 stores throughout North America and they can typically be found in your local mall.
