    You may be lucky enough to be going skiing this spring. But what clothes do kids need on the ski slopes? We have a list of must-haves to keep them warm and dry all holiday long. Further down there’s a quick clothes guide that you can easily capture as a screenshot and save on your phone. Ski slopes clothes list: Layer 1: thermal layer that wicks away moisture. We recommend our wool underwear. Also take thin wool socks that don’t bunch up inside ski boots. Layer 2: a cozy middle layer in fleece or wool terry keeps children warm all day. Layer 3: for younger children, who may not be spending as much time on the slopes, a winter overall is practical. And for slightly …

    The Swedish tradition of holding a Midsummer Party is a lovely way of bringing family and friends, young and old together. In Mid-June, school is out and nature has burst into life. It seems like the sun never sets. In fact, in the north of Sweden it doesn’t, and in the south only for an hour or two. This calls for celebration! Whatever the weather decides to do, the celebration goes ahead all across Sweden on Midsummer Eve which is the Friday closest to the summer solstice, this year it is Friday June 23rd. Swedes love Midsummer, and here we’ll show you how to hold a Midsummer party of your own! Midsummer Pole The essential item, and takes some effort but believe us it is …

    MEET OUR AMAZING PO.P MOM – JENNY LONNSTAM Tell us about your upbringing and how it shaped who you are today? I grew up in a small town in Sweden with three siblings, a mom and dad. We have always been a very tight crew and my parents always allowed us kids to be ourselves and to try whatever we wanted in life! We skied to school on snowy days, biked everywhere on the summers and had a very healthy outdoorsy lifestyle. This definitely stuck with me as a mom because I am working hard on raising strong, loving little humans and both my kids love nothing more than being outside. Rain, snow or shine! “There is no bad weather, only bad clothing” as we …

    In honoring our diversity and all people’s equality of dignity and rights, we encouraged everyone to wear non-matching socks on March 21st – to celebrate our differences! World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD), observed on 21 March every year, is a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012. The date for WDSD being the 21st day of the 3rd month, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome. Rock your Socks is an American initiative that the Swedish National Down Syndrome Association adopted when in 2015 ten-year-old Nathea went on Facebook to ask people to mark the day by wearing non-matching socks to school or work. Nathea has an …

  9. The Importance of Reflectors on Clothing

    Reflectors are important. A motorist can detect a pedestrian three times as fast if the pedestrian is equipped with reflectors. Polarn O. Pyret has been making children’s clothing for 40 years. We’ve had time to learn what works and what doesn’t. Every detail on our garments – from t-shirts to outerwear – has been tried and tested. Every garment has been specifically designed with children in mind. We don’t compromise on quality, design or function. That’s what makes the difference. Polarn O. Pyret’s overalls, shell jackets and shell pants have reflectors with 360-degree visibility for children to appear as well as possible in the autumn and winter darkness. Even our wind fleece jackets, hats, and shell mittens have reflectors. All for the best visibility in …

She shares some tips and tricks on what to think about before, during and after a trip.   Our adventure is getting closer – we are going to go to Malaysian Borneo with all our family over Christmas and New Year. I now feel the children are old enough, 7 and 9, for such a long journey. We grown-ups are looking forward to lazy days on the beach and exciting excursions into the rain forest. The children are thinking about what will happen on Christmas Eve. Will they get any presents? What kind of Christmas sweets will there be? And how will Granny and Granddad fare back home? And who is …
