A few weeks ago, Reuben and I were invited to visit the boutique Pikku, which is a gorgeous clothing shop and hair salon for little ones. Based in Gosforth, it’s dead easy for us to get to and park near, so we jumped at the chance. Not least because Reuben could no longer see past his fringe and needed some serious help in the hairstyles department!

Hairstyles and shopping at Pikku

When we arrived Samantha, the lovely store manager, gave us a tour of the clothing store and their exciting product line. The shop itself is very inviting and Reuben instantly took to rampaging around.

He instantly feel in love with the lovely crochet animals dotted around the shop, especially this giraffe!

Thankfully Samantha didn’t mind as she calmly took me through some of the stand out products. And there are a lot of stand out products, because a LOT of thought has been put into this shop, let me tell you. With a penchant for scandinavian clothing, I was not disappointed! Pikku is the only place you can buy Gugguu outside of Finland and I loved the little unisex blazers.

I was especially enamoured with the girls’ Gugguu line. Gorgeous coloured leggings and racing style dresses and vests. {meanwhile Reuben is trying on some of the girls and boys slugs and snails tights!}

Reuben loved the legging tights by Biade and Rose (we ended up buying the Fire Engine ones!) and they made for a gorgeous washing line display.

The other exciting product line that you can find at Pikku is Jessie and James (formerly designers for Vivianne Westwood!). A high end designer brand, there are some gorgeous, unique and fashionable pieces, and Pikku is the only place in Newcastle that you can find it too.

There were also some gorgeous petticoats and dresses – making me want a little girl. So, so beautiful!

My favourite piece from the whole shop was this jumper by Albababy – so cosy but really trendy, I just loved it! So we bought that too. And, it’s been the perfect transition piece away from the winter coat – he wore it nearly every day over the holidays as the ‘extra layer’ when it starts to get a bit cooler in the shade or early evening.

When we were all shopped out, we headed upstairs to the hairdressing section of the store. We were greeted by Reuben’s bubbly and super friendly hairdresser, and he was given plenty of time to have a good look around the shop and inspect the different cars, which he thought was ace.

Specifically for littles, the hair section has 2 cars for kids to sit in, iPads, balloons, and any number of other things to keep your kiddies entertained while they are getting their hair done. Reuben is particularly unimpressed with getting his hair cut – probably because we keep it long, so he doesn’t go as regularly as other kids! But it had to be done now, that’s for sure!

After picking the pink car, he was put in position and chose to watch peppa pig on the iPad.

He kept pushing the hairdresser’s hand away and moving all over the place to stop her touching his hair. But she totally kept her cool, patiently talking away to him, trying loads of different distraction techniques, and she even let him brush her hair at one point!

The fringe was the hardest part – he was adamant he wasn’t getting that cut. But with the promise of a balloon, and then finally some chocolate brownie, he was all done! High fives all round.
