  1. Swedish Day Care Philosophy

    1

    September 21, 2015 by Jenny Lonnstam

    It’s a crisp November morning in Sweden, the daily song and dance hour has almost come to an end at “Förskolan Solen” (Daycare Sun). 15 children and 3 teachers finish a nutritious fruit snack before heading outside to 20º F and a thin layer of white powdery snow on the ground. Children begin to pair into small groups, while teachers escort kids to their cubbies. Every child has their own little area with hooks, shelves and drawers where they keep all their clothing. Properly hung, folded and name-labeled. Learning to dress for weather is a very important lesson for the day. The first layer of clothing applied is soft, comfortable play clothes, followed by a base layer of Merino Wool. The second layer a set …

    merino wool

    Is there anything more wonderful than children playing outside in the fresh air – whether it be a clear autumn day or a crisp day in December. Even when it is cold outside, however, children actively playing outdoors, easily get sweaty. To prevent the child from getting cold, moisture must be be wicked away from the body. A wool base layer keeps the child’s body warm and dry. Polarn O. Pyret’s wool base layer is made of soft merino wool that does not itch. Wool is particularly appropriate for newborns and small children since they are unable to regulate temperature in the same way as older children and adults.

    Jean details

    In the beginning, the people who used jeans were miners and cowboys – today they are more or less in everybody’s wardrobe, especially small tree climbers and adventurers! Polarn O. Pyret has five fits for all possible and impossible types of activities. Select the fit based on the type of activity – Skinny fit with lots of stretch is good for tree climbing to prevent getting caught in the branches. Loose fit might be a good alternative for a disco party. Then there is naturally the matter of taste and preference! Most important is that children get to be children – in the right jeans for all activities. SKINNY- Our most slender pants with lots of stretch. SLIM- Very slender in the leg with lots …

    Jeans made of durable cotton garments are in most families, perfect for slow, climbing and playing. But the clothes also contain chemicals that are far from child-friendly shows Testfakta, a Swedish garment testing company. Nine out of ten children jeans contain chemicals, shows the Testfakta test, but not Polarn O. Pyret jeans. In particular, the environment takes a beating when toxic substances flow into the wash water. In an analysis of ten pair of jeans for children from different European brands, it appears that three pairs containing the hazardous substance nonylphenol (NPE), which is very toxic to aquatic organisms, and has also been shown to disrupt the natural balance of hormones. NPE is already prohibited in Europe, and the Swedish Chemicals Agency is currently lobbying …

  7. Unders

    We think the bottom layer should be the most fun! Panties, pants, boxers, briefs, unders, bloomers, knickers or unmentionables. Whatever you want to call them, we have them and we promise they are the cutest in town. You will not find princesses, video game characters or superheroes on ours though. So if you need those, you’ll have to go elsewhere.
