Introducing a brand new label here at Shorties - Danefae.
If Scandinavian colour ways and Viking motifs tug at your heart strings, you'll love everything about these quirky Danish designs. We have more styles in store, and there are more on their way from the far North as we speak. 

Holiday Time

Some spare time for walks around the suburb is always welcome and enjoyable around Christmas time.
Thanks for making Christmas so fun in Shorties this year.

Happy Holidays!

poem by Dallas Clayton

2011 has been a wonderful year, and we have you to thank for helping make it so.
It can be all too easy to get caught up in the frenzy of the holiday season but this year we would really like to give something back.

This Christmas, Shorties will be donating $500 to a children’s charity. The only thing is, we haven’t decided which one yet. This is where we really need your help.

Do you know of a great cause that is working to make children’s lives better? If so, please head right on over to our facebook page and shout it from the rooftops. Let us know a little bit about the charity and why you have nominated them to receive the money (before Jan 1st). We know there are some seriously amazing people and organisations out there, and we're counting on you to help us find them.

Here's to giving, and to a very happy holidays!


Harvey getting in on the action as i take pictures for my new Dragstar Tumblr page.

Stylin Scarlett

The summer wardrobe is not complete without a flowing floral dress and a tan belt. I love this navy and white gypsy style from Boohoo designs. Wear it cinched at the waist with a belt or loose and flowing for a day at the beach.
Boohoo dress $35 Sizes 2-8yrs, Kiniki Belt $29

Alma, 2

We had to post both these pictures of gorgeous Alma, aged 2, in her Missie Munster tee, because we couldn't decide which was cuter.

Toys, Toys and More TOYS!

Christmas has well and truly arrived at Shorties! We received a delivery today, twenty boxes worth to be exact. And each of these boxes is filled with TOYS. The exciting task of unpacking all these goodies has begun so get on down here and grab some Christmas stocking fillers.

Sture and Lisa

We just love these fair trade cotton separates from cute label Sture & Lisa. Really, can you ever go wrong with apples and elephants?

This new Swedish label is all fairtrade and 100% organic cotton.Bliss

Flat Out Frankie

Here's something we are very excited about - awesome Flat Out Frankie cardboard play equipment for Shorties "Crafty Christmas"
Flat Out Frankie is a fantastic brand based in New Zealand. Their cardboard creations are designed to inspire creative and active play. Better yet, they fold away flat to save on space, are 100% recyclable (so no more Landfill), and can be easily customised with a lick of paint or an imaginative drawing. Pretty good we think!

We have the aeroplane ($45), oven ($40), dollhouse and castle ($35) in store right now!

We Heart Tootlebug (and Peachface)

Sue is the very clever lady behind one of our all-time favourite labels, Tootlebug. She's been creating bright, colourful, fun-filled frocks for several years now, and we've always loved the fact that each dress is unique and a little bit crazy (just like the little people who end up wearing them, don't you think?) So when we heard Sue was finishing up Tootlebug for good, we knew we needed to snap up as many dresses as we could!

And so we now have a lovely collection of Tootlebug dresses and skirts in store. Each lovingly handcrafted piece combines an array of cotton fabrics, and the result is something fun for little girls to wear every day. Easy to wash, comfortable to play in, and something to be treasured for years to come. Here are a few of our favourites...

We're also so pleased to be carrying Sue's skincare range for tweens and teens, Peachface. All the products are concocted using only the gentlest natural and organic ingredients, and each is emblazoned with a positive affirmation. There is literally nothing nasty in these pretty little bottles - we're talking NO mineral oil, parabens, SLS, synthetic frangrances, colours or preservatives. They smell and feel fantastic - we have testers in store, so you can see for yourself what all the fuss is about!

The gorgeous Peachface range, now in Shorties!

Announcing our Winner...

We have just loved seeing all your childhood moments; some funny, some heartfelt, and all as cute as a button. Thank you so much to everyone who sent in a happy snap - it's just as well we've drawn the winner randomly, as it would have been a very tough job to pick just one winning picture!

But as they say, there can only be one winner. So, without further ado, the lucky lady is...
