Mini Street provides quality, affordable clothing options for children and adults. Our goal has always been to create outfits for the latest fashion trends and styles while offering clothing that won’t tear, ripe or fade after a few washings. When it comes to kids clothes, you can trust us to know that it will be durable and the clothing can even withstand those grass stains from your kid’s daily play time. Here are some of our favorite tips to help parents when getting kids ready for back to school.
Be Prepared - Obtain the School Clothing Requirements
When it comes to children, we all know you can never be too prepared. Children need routines and it helps to know all of their scheduling requirements for school and afterschool activities. Planning ahead will help you to stay organized and reduce a lot of the stress burden that comes with parenting. If your child attends a school with uniform requirements, find out exactly what type of clothing is needed. Mini Street offers some options for school clothing including everything down to the knee socks.
Most schools will send an email with clothing requirements, or you can typically find them online. It helps to start a checklist of all the items your child will need for their upcoming school year. Before you start buying, it always pays to do some research and understand the rules and requirements so you do not overbuy or spend extra money and time trying to return and exchange clothing and school supplies.
Finding Your Child’s Size
In addition to having the clothing your child needs for school, it’s a good idea to pick up some new clothing they can wear after school, on weekends, and when they are playing with friends. You will want to take a look at your child’s current clothing to see if the sizing is accurate. With so many variations in sizing, it helps to take measurements of your child so you can easily select clothing that will not be too tight or too loose.
A great deal of choosing quality clothing comes down to understanding how your child uses their clothing. Do you have an active child that tends to run, jump, and climb over playground equipment all day? Perhaps you have a child that loves to roll down grass hills or one that loves to ride their scooter after school. Comfortable, breathable clothing is the best option for active kids. At Mini Street, we design clothing around the active lifestyles of children. We know how hard kids are on their clothing, so we only sell clothing that we know is kid-tested!
Fashion Meets Comfort
We understand how important it is for kids to fit in with their peers. Selecting a t-shirt with a superhero goes a long way for kids to break the ice with their peers, especially as they are starting the first day of school for the year. What about a beautiful dress for your daughter that you don’t need to worry about having it fall apart before she comes home from school? Mini Street listens to moms, and as moms, we know how important it is to create clothing that can withstand kids daily routines.

Climate Clothing Requirements
Depending upon where you live, you may need to purchase additional clothing designed for colder or warmer weather. Beanies are a great option to pair with any outfit, and they work great on those colder winter days! It is important to invest in outwear as most schools will not allow children to play outside if they do not have the correct winter gear including a coat, hat, and gloves.
