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:

Lishy Loo Vintage: Cookie Monster Wooden Puzzle

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!

Vintage Kiddo Mondays: Retro Roundup

Happy happy Monday, darlings! Did you have a wonderful weekend fully of jelly beans, malt ball easter eggs, choccy bunnies and peeps peeps PEEPS! I spent mine nomming on some honey baked ham, roasted asparagus and homemade cream biscuits with pooh butter. I wonder how many calories e-shopping burns? I do type 80 words per minute, but still I think I may have to hop off for a brisk walk after chatting with ya’ll. Oof!

Well, let’s get down to it, darlin’s because we’ve been so very busy while the Easter Bunny was doing his rounds and have some ridonkulous button cute vintage finds to share.

With April showers blowing in this month, having such a great raincoat as this vintage Superman raincoat from the 60s may take away the blues.

What a super find, eBay seller, Mama Jeanne!

You’ll want to choo choo choose this perfect Health Tex top from our friends over at CowTown’s Revenge.

Oh. My. Word!  Doesn’t this snappy dress looks like it was stolen from Marsha Brady’s closet?

Thanks for the love eBay seller,  Annie’s Panties!

And then there is this great ABC dress from Sears.  If this isn’t the perfect thing to wear to the first day of school, I don’t know what is! And with a starting price of $1.99, you just HAVE TO BUY IT, RIGHT?

A+, eBay seller, Rapistole!

I am head over heels for this little pair of baby shoes made of felt.  So pretty that they would be just as wonderful in your nursery as decor.

Thank you for sharing them, Etsy seller, A Rose Without a Thorn.

I know, I know… we here at Modern Kiddo are very pro comfort and usually aren’t fans of the polyester onesie, BUT I just fell in love with these great polyester onesies!  I think you could easily cut the bottoms off and turn these into some swell shirts for your little one—over a nice cotton t-shirt, right? Who’s with me?

Well played, Etsy seller, Fat Patch. Well played, indeed!

With a name like Dottie, I am sworn to love the Dachshund dog. Now check out this little Doxie with balloons on this vest.

Even one of the balloons has dots on it!  And a errant seagull to boot??  Drat it, Etsy seller, HartandSew, you did it again!

Remember when Snoopy was bigger than ANYTHING in the seventies/eighties?  You HAD to have your Snoopy stuffed animal and at least five outfits for it! Well, this sweet t-shirt is going to have you flashing back to your favorite Snoopy memory. Look at him here roasting six hot dogs at once. He’s like the McGyver of dogs! Go Snoopy, go!

We’re just wild about eBay seller Robot Parade for Kids.

And finally, your little one will be quite the handsome devil in these sassy pants.  Pitchforks not included!

Tee hee!  I don’t know why the Devil is wearing a hospital gown, but perhaps they are quite in fashion in H. E. double hockey sticks land?  You’d have to go there and back to find a pair of pants as cute as these that Etsy seller, Fuzzy Mama is selling.

Well, happy Monday, ya’ll and get ready for an extra special week here at the MK corral, for someone very special is about to have the sweetest birthday ever this week.  Whoo hoo!
