It's time for Vintage Kiddo! The Weekly Retro Round Up.

Yeee haw it’s Monday gang! Are we all ready for another peek into the World of Vintage Kiddo clothing? I totally love the 70s, but I know not everyone finds the cleverly kistchy vintage as relevant for ze modern child. This week I decided to search for some vintage that is still stylish and unique, but could also integrate easily into a modern day wardrobe.

You already know three of our top favorites: 3 Ring Circus,  Lishy Loo Vintage, and Frecklewonder.  This week we have a couple of new faces to add to our spotlight: Midstate Vintage and Oh Sydney.

The thing about vintage is that there is usually an abundance of baby and toddler clothes, but for bigger kiddos? WAY harder to find. The younguns grows so quickly, that their clothing isn’t worn nearly as much as those in the 4-8 year old set. That’s why I was thrilled to stumbled upon Midstate Vintage. All their clothing is in big kiddo sizes—and so adorable!

Those little high-waisted, sailor shorties are AMAZING. I can see those being sold in a modern day boutique.

The vintage stripey shirt is a classic look for little boys!

I love those two plaid dressies. And how cute are these little models! To see more, be sure to check out the Midstate Vintage shop.

On the opposite end of the spectrum are our friends over at Oh Sydney. This cutie has been featured on Vintage Kiddo before, and has an eye for the little guys and girlies.

That little paisley coat is a killer—how adorable with those big green buttons?? Be sure to swing by Oh Sydney to see even more goodies.

Whew, lots of good stuff today people! And I leave you with some of my non-clothing picks from our Vintage Kiddo All-Stars. First up is a really great Playskool wooden puzzle. These are really fun for kids (Wolfie had a bunch of them) and this Cookie Monster themed one is just so great! I love the spaghetti bird nest:

Heather over at 3 Ring Circus has loads of amazing clothes but I was totally smitten with these cutie cute little plastic hair barrettes. Roller skates and guitar playing kitties?? Weeeee!


3 Ring Circus: vintage snap barettes

And finally, my girl Jenny over at Frecklewonder never fails to find the most terrific gems! I am sooo loving these really cool choo choo wall hangings. All aboard!!

HAPPY MONDAY everyone!
